Been years since I've looked at this deck. I actually re-made my Guildgate deck when this set was released as well. Guild Summit and Gateway Plaza were too good to pass up. Here's my updated deck list if you're interested in checking it out.
You really need to decide if you want to go the turbo fog route. If you do, go all-in on it. If you don't, then don't run any fogs and go full control. I happen to think that full turbo fog is the way to go with gates, but it can be run either way. Anything in the middle will give you a mixed bag of tricks that you won't be able to use very well.
Running 1x-2x Crackling Perimeter gives you a great secondary win-con, in case your Maze's End gets somehow removed from the game. I've found that Terminus works really well as a board wipe, as you can get the low CMC cast for practically free, and 6 mana isn't too much for a stalling deck in case you can't use the miracle cost. I've also found a ton of success running 2x Primeval Titan. If you've got 6 gates in play, the turn you cast it you get 2 more, then the next turn you swing and win because you'll have all 10 gates in play. Really speeds up the game plan.
Guild Summit is so good man, you want 4. It's your main draw condition, and it can turn a single land play into a chain that draws you several cards if you've got things like Rites of Flourishing or Azusa, Lost but Seeking in play. I run 4x Guild Summit and 4x Rites of Flourishing and it works really well, the two synergize off each-other and both speed up the deck massively.
I tend to play multi-player games more often than 1v1. If you're in a similar boat, then running 2-4x Isochron Scepter can really add longevity to the deck, help you survive against multiple players, etc. Really great when paired with 12x fog effects, as you can always have access to a fog to use. Speaking of fogs, I'd recommend checking out Dawn Charm and Respite. Dawn Charm stops attacks directed to your face, as well as fogging when needed. Respite gives you life every time you use it, adding to your longevity in the game. Both pair extremely well with Isochron Scepter at two CMC.
You really need a way to recover your destroyed lands. The method I've chosen to use is just running 2x Elixir of Immortality. This gains me life when cast and cycles any destroyed Gates back into my library. Since I use Elixirs, this allows me to only run 1x of each gate (with the exception of Gateway Plaza and Selesnya Guildgate as those tap for my main colors). Really makes the land base easier, and makes searching for gates 10000x easier.
Anyways, just was following your deck from a couple years ago and got notified that someone commented. Figured that I'd give my two cents again, since more cards were released for this arch-type. Good luck with your Maze's End deck!

And even though Selesnya Guildmage is an elf, you have too many 2 drops, so adding another Marwyn or two should up your game.

Couple of thoughts:
- Blackblade Reforged really isn't all that hot unless it's going on Multani. I'd almost suggest cutting one or two for Forebear's Blade.
- 4 Blood Suns might be pushing it. 3-of would be a safer bet.
- Even in this deck, Boros Guildgate/Selesnya Guildgate look so much more appealing than Gateway Plaza. I'd cut 2x Plazas for one of each remaining gate.
(God, this deck is cool.)

Is there a specific reason why you run Tranquil Expanse and Selesnya Guildgate instead of Command Tower and Fortified Village? And why do you run Evolving Wilds and Terramorphic Expanse? I think you should run Plains' instead of these. And with all the card draw you have, a Reliquary Tower wouldn't be bad I guess, unless you never have more than 7 cards at the end of your turn.

The first thing I would add would be Fleecemane Lion, probably over Skyhunter Skirmisher. I would definitely add more dual lands like Canopy Vista and Temple Garden, fetches like Windswept Heath. If budget is a concern you can get stuff like Selesnya Guildgate for really cheap.
Next I would add some sort of removal or answers to what your opponent is doing. For instance, if someone plays Ensnaring Bridge against you, you effectively cannot do anything about it, but if you have Disenchant in the sideboard, you can answer artifacts. Path of Exile is a staple for creature removal in white in modern is something else I would add.
This deck could use some love on the curve too, right now you have no 2 or 4 drops in a deck that probably wants to play a creature every single turn seems like bad tempo for a mid-range tribal deck.
