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.

Thousand-Year Elixir; not just for Triad of Fates's sake (or King Macar, the Gold-Cursed), but to have a blocker that you also wanted to swing with, especially if you have Archetype of Finality on board.

As Hexaflexagon pointed out, looking at an opponent's hand is very powerful. I tend to forget the potency of being able to do this as I tend to build hyper-aggressive removal decks, falling in the realm of Rakdos, Jund, and Gruul. I let you play your spells, than get rid of them.

But that is a good point that advanced knowledge is always more powerful than responsive tactics.

Skulk.

When Derelict Swindler enters the battlefield or dies, target opponent reveals three cards from their hand at random.

Always on the prowl, some seek out danger purely for the adrenaline.

Three cards in the entire game make Gold Tokens.

King Macar, the Gold-Cursed, Gild, and the recently made Curse of Opulence.

Make another card that fits how these three work, so that Modern can have fun making Gild decks.

Sorry for all these multiple posts in a row, I don't think I'm able to edit my comments.

Does King Macar, the Gold-Cursed count as a mana dork?

hey infernogaming, yeah, the deck is definitely on the gimmicky side and can be made a lot more competetive. (adding some tutoring for example) i would not cut any of the mana rocks since dimir has a hard time ramping efficiently. you don't need any expensive lands at all for a deck to perform well, especially in multiplayer, so no harm in replacing those. generally in multiplayer i would stick with 10 cards ramp 10 cards draw. if you want to cut go for the synergy cards: King Macar, the Gold-Cursed, Lazav, Dimir Mastermind, Tree of Perdition and replace them with some removal or counterspell cards of your choice. hope that helps.
