You could also put a Thornbite Staff on an assassin for value.
If you would consider playing U in place of G (with, say, Dromar, the Banisher), you could put all kinds of draw and Twiddle effects un an Isochron Scepter or play cards like Cryptic Command to tap an opponent's team.
Have fun brewing!

I too am a fan of the Twiddle bird. I was super intrigued when I saw Aetherflux Reservoir but then I didn't see and engine for it. I highly recommend Dramatic Reversal + Isochron Scepter and Enlightened Tutor, Tezzeret the Seeker , and Mystical Tutor to find it faster. You already have some good draw engines here some extra tutors will just streamline the process.

Yeah so here's the deal: The Stack.
If your opponent casts say, Twiddle to tap down Gemhide Sliver, it doesn't tap the sliver until it resolves, which doesn't happen until all players pass priority. Mana Abilities (abilities that generate mana) do not even use the stack. If it's your turn, during your main phase, you get priority, at which point you can tap slivers for mana, cast spells, activate abilities, and your opponent can't cast instants until you pass priority to let your effects resolve. And aside even from this, everything before the : in an activated ability is part of the cost, and cannot be responded to.
In simple terms, no, this is not how it works at all. You can't use a spell or ability that taps a creature in response to its ability to interrupt or in any way disrupt the activation or resolution of said ability.
Edit: And furthermore, in regards to "or does he have to tap it before i declare my card tapped for the cost of my spell?": Even that wouldn't work really. If your opponent casts a spell during your upkeep to tap your sliver(s), then maybe. But during your Main Phase, your opponent can not just do things, they have to wait for you, the active player, to pass priority.

Apprentice Wizard, Soul Conduit, Elite Arcanist, Twiddle, Twitch could be interesting additions to a deck like this.
The Conduit while expensive could help to ensure that the dethrone ability is always at full effect. The others are to aid in activating abilities twice.
