Arcbound Reclaimer Discussion

Back to your deck, I'd love to see a Steel Overseer in here. A lot of your artifact creatures are small utility creatures (Myr Retriever, Chief of the Foundry, Junk Diver, etc.) and Steel Overseer would help them grow to keep Ghalta cheap. Verdurous Gearhulk is 8 power for 5 mana with 4 of that power spread across your creatures however you want and is an artifact. These +1/+1 counters work well with Arcbound Reclaimer and Hangarback Walker as well.
Prophetic Prism and Terrarion could both be swapped, in my opinion. Mycosynth Wellspring generates card advantage once it's been sacrificed and helps find Forests which seems important given your very low land count. Smuggler's Copter provides card quality and not card advantage, but seems at least worth consideration.

Wow! This list looks insane. You're running basically every card I've tried to keep myself from buying over the last three years haha. One day Candelabra of Tawnos . . . one day.
Any reason you decided to add creatures? They all make sense, but I'm trying to think of ways to recur Vampire Hexmage and Arcbound Reclaimer without popping your commander or tutoring for Trading Post. Try running Dawn of the Dead, it has so much synergy with Xiahou Dun, the One-Eyed that I think it merits a slot. Lets you just keep him in the yard to recur a black spell each of your first main-phases. I'd suggest Bloodghast and Nether Traitor if you want other self-recurring creatures. Maybe check out Liliana, Death's Majesty.
Corpse Dance helps out a lot in this situation, but I really hate the whole "top creature in the graveyard" nonsense. It is such a tough condition to keep track of and people get so handsy with your graveyard when you run this commander that you really need to house rule the order of your graveyard every time you run the deck. It may not pose an issue for you since you have a much more limited creature pool, but it can be annoying. With that said, there's no real substitute for what it does, instant speed and buyback make this card insane.
Also, I'm really liking Forcefield in your deck and I am probably going to include it in one of my lists.
How have you liked Soul Conduit? I've considered it a few times but I'm always pretty hesitant.

Arcbound Reclaimer is the only arcbound creature worth considering in Commander, and even it's not a great all-around include.

I did not read Scarecrone closely enough. That's a super neat card. I'm going to have to remember to keep that one in mind for future artifact decks. Thanks :)
Feldon shines with cards like Wurmcoil Engine, Arcbound Reclaimer and Solemn Simulacrum, and the "sac at end of turn" plays nicely with Bosh. But I can definitely see how it might be underwhelming in practice when he realistically only has 9 targets in your deck (a few of which of which are not particularly amazing in the first place).

Got a hold of Living Death, so that's in for Cloak and Dagger. I think Cloak was just a bit too gimmicky, more often than not Grenzo would already be on the battlefield so casting this for and equipping for just felt bad. The +2/+0 was kind of nice, but it only really mattered if I hit Flayer of the Hatebound because that's the only creature with power greater than 3 (and I almost always cast Grenzo for X=1). In the future I think Lightning Greaves has a place in this deck for the shroud ability at a much cheaper cost.
In other news I did some more play testing at my LGS and found In Garruk's Wake to be pretty good so far. I often have a lot of creatures out by virtue of Grenzo so keeping them around has proven useful. The added ability to kill planeswalkers I'm liking as well. By that same stroke Caged Sun has not proven to be quite as good as I had hoped, mana is a lot and I don't have any way to cheat out big artifacts. That said, a friend suggested Scrap Mastery which may be worthwhile, considering I'm running 26 artifacts that frequently get binned from Grenzo. Alternatively maybe putting in Arcbound Reclaimer for Myr Retriever might be worthwhile, I'm not sure.
Lastly, in a previous comment I misinterpreted the tribe of Shapeshifter to all have the Changeling ability (which they do not), only Taurean Mauler has this ability. I regret the error.

This hurts my eyes....I'm not a competitive player by any means, but this is soooo all over the place I think most wins/interactions would be pure luck.
I have to give you major props for putting these to Partners together... they lack synergy so much, that's why there's no frame of reference. On the other hand if you force them to have synergy you could have a very unique and fun deck on your hands. I think the only way to do this is with (mostly) artifact creatures that etb with/benefit from +1/+1 counters. Even going this route feels weird without access to blue.
Anyways...suggestions for the card pool....
Arcbound Crusher, Arcbound Reclaimer, Arcbound Stinger, Etched Oracle, Flowstone Sculpture, Lunar Avenger, Mindless Automaton, Spincrusher, Suncrusher, Triskelion, Mephidross Vampire, Necropolis Regent, Dark Impostor, Death's Presence (stacks with Reyhan), Then for any other idea's I'd start looking at the 3 billion Atraxa Decklists that have popped up this month for stuff like Contagion Engine, Sunscorch Regent or Renegade Krasis or whatever.
Anyways +1 Upvote for bravery on mixing these Partners

Assuming Arcbound Reclaimer was already in play and I subsequently played Phyrexian Rebirth, would the resulting "colorless Horror artifact creature" receive any of Arcbound Reclaimer's +1/+1 counters?
Furthermore, does anyone know of anything similar to the modular mechanic that distributes +1/+1 counters to artifact creatures?
