"What I'm about to say may contradict god's teachings"
As for win cons, it looks like you have all the creature based ones you could want, so that shouldn't be a huge problem for you at this point.

I would never have more than 60, the consistency is always more important than the extra cards. I would cut 2x Consulate Dreadnought which you don't get much out of, 1x Forest because cutting the other cards can lower your land count, 4x Territorial Allosaurus because the kicker isn't really that good with the other cards and you don't need another 4 drop 5/5, 4x Gigantosaurus because you have enough power already and without trample it's not doing much for you also because the cost is so high, 1x Ranging Raptors you could probably cut all of them because you don't need ramp really; but you need three drops, move the 2x Deathgorge Scavenger to the side board in place of Cacophodon because it's ability is only good in some matches, and add 1x Ghalta, Primal Hunger because it's probably the best card in the deck with being able to come down for GG and having trample.

Modern has a bunch of efficient 1 drops and cards that care about artifacts. Even on a budget there are cards like Ardent Recruit / Toolcraft Exemplar , Shrapnel Blast , Galvanic Blast , Dispatch etc.
The vehicle most likely to see play, oddly enough, might be Consulate Dreadnought , if there are high-power creatures that can't attack (like ahmonket gods, Slumbering Dragon or Lupine Prototype ) right now though, everything falls just shy.
I'd focus on playing 1 and 2 cost spells, with creatures that can reach 3 power to crew or attack turn 2/3, and burn spells (shrapenel blast and boros charm) to finish up. Heart likes turn 3 plainswalkers, so I'd hunt through the list of three drop walkers to drop something somewhat efficient- Saheeli, Sublime Artificer might make the cut, as copying an animated dreadnought is pretty scary.

Merchant Ship (This is is about $10 on tcgplayer right now I checked)
There you may want to look at vehicles Consulate Dreadnought , Fell Flagship , Dusk Legion Dreadnought , Shadowed Caravel , Silent Submersible . Skysovereign, Consul Flagship , Sleek Schooner and a few more I may have missed.
Also Ixalan and rivals of Ixalan had a lot blue and black pirates and there are a few more other options but I think you could go vehicles and hit your theme on a overall cheap budget
Your myr can leverage the vehicles easily

Hey, so it looks like you have stuffed the deck with ways to tap down your commander, but you're only untapping during your untap step for the most part, you should look into more untap affects. You have Saddlebags, which works, but I would look to add a few more; Staff of Domination , Umbral Mantle , Thornbite Staff , Thousand-Year Elixir , Paradox Engine , also there's Maze of Ith and Thaumatic Compass Flip. Additionally, if you're going to be tapping and untapping creatures, creatures like Avatar of Woe and Visara the Dreadful , to get more value out of those untap affects. Also, take a look at some of the Crew costs. You are low on creatures, high on Vehicles. You'll always have access to King Macar, the Gold-Cursed , but there's no guarantee you'll have creatures with Power > 2 on the battlefield on in your hand so; Aradara Express , Ballista Charger , Bomat Bazaar Barge , Conqueror's Galleon Flip, Consulate Dreadnought , Demolition Stomper , Fell Flagship , Heart of Kiran , Irontread Crusher , Skysovereign, Consul Flagship , and Weatherlight , all are likely dead cards on the battlefield, unable to be crewed. Also, Magus of the Coffers will be high value as well, generating mass amounts of mana while also being able to untapped by untappers. You also might want to look into adding some more card draw, you have Greed , but perhaps Bloodgift Demon , Pain Seer , and Dark Tutelage are solid options. I know some of my suggestions are expensive, but I'm just trying to help optimize, and efficient untappers are going to be expensive because they're rarer.

My idea is to make all of the above as 30 card Modern legal decks, where you take any two pieces and combine them before the game starts to make a full 60 card deck. Each 30 card deck will also have a "champion" - a mythic or rare that is the lynchpin - while the rest of the cards are commons or uncommons. For example, BR aristocrats:
This can be combined with say, RW Vehicle aggro:
1 Depala, Pilot Exemplar - the champion
4 Veteran Motorist
2 Renegade Freighter
2 Untethered Express
2 Consulate Dreadnought
1 Aeronaut Admiral
2 Speedway Fanatic
1 Caught in the Brights
2 Court Homunculus
You can easily combine the two to make a capable deck. Keep going for the other deck archetypes.
What this idea does is provide a mini-game for more experienced players and variety of gameplay, while less experienced ones get a view of deckbuilding and a form of "smash-up" that is more fun than simply picking up a ready deck. If you want to really spice it up, add some loose cards players can switch in between games - a sort of a sideboard.
For example, with 10 30-card decks, you have 90 combinations.

I also find it a bit odd that you're running with Grand Arbiter in such an artifact focused deck. I feel like Hanna, Ship's Navigator or Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage would make a bit more sense. You could even make a case for Lavinia of the Tenth since you seem to want to lock down your opponent with this deck and she could do that. Though her ability won't trigger while you have an orb effect out.
