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.

Winds of Rebuke could save you in the early game, Aether Meltdown as well but it doesn't have the mill theme. River's Rebuke could save you in the mid-late.

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?

Wily Goblin is not great in a three colour deck. Perhaps Prosperous Pirates, which is only 1 specific mana

Not sure why you aren't running at least 1 Revel in Riches just for an alternate win condition..

Could have potential for Battle at the Bridge. And of course Tezzeret the Schemer fits well into your 4 cmc slot as a replacement for Prosperous Pirates or a delayed Sailor of Means. He has a repeating ability that can do the same thing or he could potentially use his -2 ability , if your artifacts are very low, and pump up the Marionette Master just enough to pull a win from a stalemate.

DAWT_PLAWT Panharmonicon is brutal in these types of decks with all ETB triggers doubled Sailor of Means and Prosperous Pirates all producing double tokens. Marionette Master gets double Fabricate trigger(btw its 2 separate triggers so you could make 6x 1/1's or 3x 1/1's and 3 +1/+1 counters or 6 +1/+1 counters). If you end up running a Hostage Taker it would exile 2 items too. Combo that with the siren's ruse making them re-enter and things get really out of hand fast

I ended up not using Revel in Riches because 10 tokens is just kinda inconsistent. And mechanized comparatively takes too long as well too at 8 tokens.

w33m4n Yea I tried to make the deck a little faster with Panharmonicon for Prosperous Pirates the enter the battlefield trigger, on top of the Mechanized Production

Also both of them don't interface well with the whole Siren's Ruse+Panharmonicon combo with the existing creatures like Sailor of Means and Prosperous Pirates do

Yeah my local meta are very competitive players and most are net decking pros so all the usual suspects for removal and gods and planeswalkers are a regular thing. Cruel Reality would be a viable option to you I think. Funny enough I was looking at it earlier today and thinking it could be kinda useful in my deck if a game ends up dragging on too long.

As far as Panharmonicon getting hit with removal or anything is just fine. If I need it something will be used to counter if possible and otherwise the deck doesn't need it to win. With Treasure Map, Sailor of Means, and Prosperous Pirates I can still easily generate enough treasures to win, especially if I get to use Siren's Ruse to blink the creatures for extra treasure plus draw.(and the beauty that there is a ruling that blinking creatures using Siren's Ruse removes all targeting so it acts like a protection spell too if needed.)
