I like the idea of a vampire subtheme, it unintentionally works very well with what I feel like you're trying to do, and there's a ton of great support and synergy from the precon and ixalan stuff.

Ways to make Macar unblockable would also allow you to attack with him as a means to tap him.
I'd highly suggest some additional creatures that benefit from your tap/untap theme.

I really love this deck concept, I think the only thing I would consider adding is a Open the Vaults just in case a rogue Nev Disk or Akroma's Vengeance comes across the table. It would mess up your game plan. I also think you could add an Icy Manipulator or Puppet Strings, in combination with some Orbs Static Orb/Winter Orb you can get some sick lockdown combos.

This looks super cool!
How often do you put fate counters on opponent's creatures, to threaten the exile? It looks like it could be super political, which looks like lots of fun.
You may want to consider Puppet Strings if you find yourself with too much mana and not enough ways to untap the triad. It can tap-down opponents' creatures too, if you need that more.
Also, it looks a bit light on card-draw. It also looks like it has a giant pile of mana-outlets for you to play with if your hand is empty and you have a board-presence... but I feel like recovering from boardwipes (which are everywhere in EDH) will be pretty challenging. I could be wrong though. You'd have to let me know.

Magewright's Stone, Puppet Strings, and Staff of Domination because you want to be able to use the commander's ability as much as possible. Also, those are going to be huge targets once people realize what is happening. You'll want as much redundancy as possible.
Also, I think you could play some different big red stuff. Avatar of Slaughter could be hugely beneficial for you. Since you have to sacrifice him, you are the only one that gets the double strike benefit. Excruciator just to bypass any Fogs in your meta. Utvara Hellkite seems extremely beneficial because it will give you a dragon just for attacking. Plus, you already play multiple dragons. Spitebellows just seems funny here. It will always deal 6 damage to something! Furyborn Hellkite I feel like you could use if you made the deck a little different. Anything to deal one damage, to get a 12/12 flying for three mana. Hellkite Igniter seems good here, since you play an artifact subtheme. Hellkite Charger for the win. Scourge of the Throne for the same reason as Hellkite Igniter. Ryusei, the Falling Star for board wipes. Thundermaw Hellkite to tap all flying creatures so your attacks can get through. Akroma, Angel of Fury because she can just be a powerhouse. Combustible Gearhulk actually seems like a win-win for your deck. Neheb, the Eternal seems like he could benefit you with extra mana mainphase two. Conquering Manticore and Zealous Conscripts for similar reasons. Dragon Mage if you need a new hand. Combat Celebrant seems good here. Goblin Dark-Dwellers could be a possibility. Heartless Hidetsugu, dude yes!
I mainly searched for power, so I'm sure there are other creatures to look up with good ETB effects. After doing that search for you I realized that I like Feldon as a commander. Hope you don't mind if I make him based on your deck XD.
