Depths of Desire Discussion

Yeah, as MuhfuxinHanSolo89 says, you're definitely going to want to include a few more lands. I'd get rid of all your Depths of Desire and Contract Killing, and one Revel in Riches, to make room. It would also be a REALLY good idea to run some board clears, both to keep the pressure off and to synergise with Revel. Bontu's Last Reckoning and Yahenni's Expertise are worth considering, as are Sweltering Suns Hour of Devastation, but if you go with those last two you MUST include a lot more red sources, at least 10.
Finally, swap those Cancels out for Disallows if you have the budget, but I wouldn't worry too much about that. Please let me know how this deck goes for you, I've got a massive soft spot for Revel as a wincon :)

You could use Mechanized Production on a Treasure token, but you'd only get 1 extra Treasure token on your upkeep; unless you have the 8 to win the game right there, that's all you're going to get from that card. If you can't win after playing it, then it's just a dead card in your hand.
Deadeye Plunderers could have been a great card, but right now there's no reason to play it over a The Scarab God. Same casting cost, same ability cost - except while you're killing things for Revel in Riches, you can then reanimate them (including your own creatures for more Treasure tokens).
If The Scarab God is out of your price range, then I would probably recommend Marionette Master. With enough tokens, this thing can kill your opponent outright when it hits the board.
You could also probably use some more targeted removal. Never / Return, Walk the Plank, Noxious Gearhulk and Underhanded Designs are pretty good. Depths of Desire can bounce and make Treasure, and I really want to see the effectiveness of Vona's Hunger.

Navigator's Ruin is kind of pointless to run in a control shell. Also, if you're staying mono blue I would just embrace the control and drop Sailor of Means. Like use Spell Swindle if you really have your heart set on ramping in blue lol.
Alternatively I guess Prosperous Pirates could help if you don't hit all your Sailor of Means's. Depths of Desire could tempo your opponent, and Pirate's Prize could draw you into your pieces. All are on curve and help you ramp. If you were feeling real froggy you could try and play Baral, Chief of Compliance. He'd be a lightning rod, but it may draw the hate out so the giant fish doesn't get it later.
I also wouldn't even bother with Opt.. it doesn't dig very far.. Supreme Will would probably be better and it pulls double duty cuz it could be a pretty solid counter spell. Glimmer of Genius is the all time digger still tho. Search for Azcanta Flip I guess would be pretty nice at the lower drops.
How has this deck done at FNM or wherever?

I thought something similar.
But more of a focus on Marionette Master. Bounce the pirates with Siren's Ruse and Depths of Desire in order to generate more treasures (enhanced by Panharmonicon), Inspiring Statuary to be able to use all artifacts as mana (no need to sac treasures for early mana. With some scry and card find with Opt and Diabolic Tutor. A little bit of
I've let opponents just get down my health before I win in turn 6-7. Inventors' Fair to help with that.
