I'm not entirely sure what you're going for here, but Vault Skirge, Hangarback Walker and Cranial Plating are fun cards. Maybe you can do something with Chief of the Foundry? Also, he isn't an artifact but, maybe check out Phylactery Lich, since he plays well with artifacts. Or if you want to cast some serious threats I would look into creature cards with annihilator like Pathrazer of Ulamog, since annihilator can seriously decimate your opponent's board very quickly. A couple cheaper ones price wise are Artisan of Kozilek, Ulamog's Crusher, and Hand of Emrakul. Regardless, you would need to mana ramp into them. Good Luck! :)

This is really nice, maybe put in Thornweald Archer, deathtouch and reach is nice. Also, if your Yisan abilities let him survive long enough, you could go up to 9, which has stuff like Void Winnower, Artisan of Kozilek, Colossus of Sardia, etc. oh, also for 8, Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger is nice. and for 10 cmc, Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger, Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre, for 11, Darksteel Colossus, for 12, Blightsteel Colossus, for 13, Emrakul, the Promised End, for 14, i have no idea lol, for 15, Emrakul, the Aeons Torn, and lastly, for 16, Draco. I would'nt recommend actually going up to 16, maybe stop at 10 ish.

If you were putting in Artisan of Kozilek just for the big body and annihilation effect, you might want to check out It That Betrays or Pathrazer of Ulamog

Artisan of Kozilek won't trigger from Quicksilver Amulet or Deathrender since you don't cast it but instead play it from your hand. Cards like Omniscience are the only ways to activate the effects of cards like Artisan's revival or Emrakul, the Aeons Torn's extra turn since it mentions the casting part.

Maybe something like Twilight Shepherd would do the job better? Heck it could also be used as a way to ''cancel'' artifact removal and boardwipes.

you need 30 more cards to make it edh, have to be 100 count.

not a terrible start, but you need more instants to counter with and some mono blue staples like High Tide, futuresight, Arcanis the Omnipotent, Roil Elemental, Temporal Adept, Empress Galina, Isochron Scepter and such like that.

plus if you want to use so many big creatures, you might want like Caged Sun to get more mana, having so many big beater creatures is a little redundant though.... either Lorthos, the Tidemaker, or Artisan of Kozilek should win you the game by themselves.

you should definitely take out the Sphinx of Jwar Isle and replace it with a Inkwell Leviathan.

and yea, just try more counterspells like Mana Drain, Disallow, etc.

you also probably want a Baral, Chief of Compliance to round out your creatures. maybe even as your Commander.

somewhere between 34-37 lands will get you done in a 100 card deck. have fun and keep slinging.

So, unplayable commander deck aside, there really isn't a reason for you to run 56 lands. For your average CMC of what is in your main board, you may want to cut down to about 42 lands as you already have some mana rocks already. I would definitely run Conduit of Ruin over Ulamog's Despoiler, while also throwing in Artisan of Kozilek and Blightsteel Colossus. If you want to stick with blue, you may want some valuable counter spells like Void Shatter, Horribly Awry, Spell Shrivel, and Spelljack.

Death's Shadow, Phyrexian Dreadnought, and Spinebiter are all too cheesy imo. I also think Sidisi works better as a commander than as one of the 99, you're not trying to win with zombies and she's too slow.

Also unless you send Mimeoplasm (I may abbreviate this to plasm) to the graveyard Worldspine Wurm is just a graveyard booster. For the same mana you could play Artisan of Kozilek or Void Winnower.

Your landbase is good, and your removal suite is really good to the point it could get some trimming. Cut Murderous Cut (there are better ways to use the grave) and maybe Victim of Night. Honestly your creature count could be low enough to drop Living Death but that's an end of deckbuilding choice. Probably cut Thoughtseize too, there are just better things to do.

I would also drop the three signets for Wood Elves, Sakura-tribe Elder, and Sol Ring.

Possible Additions would be Phyrexian Arena, Treasure Cruise, Bojuka Bog, and Nihil Spellbomb is basically an auto-include for black decks. Frantic Search and Thirst for Knowledge are good looting effects.

Library manipulation with Sylvan library, ponder, and preordain is pretty key too.

Here's the cuts:

Death's Shadow -> Ponder

Phyrexian Dreadnought -> Preordain

Spinebiter -> Void Winnower

Sidisi, Brood Tyrant -> Phyrexian Arena

Worldspine Wurm -> Artisan of Kozilek

Murderous Cut -> Frantic Search

Victim of Night -> Thirst for Knowledge

Thoughtseize -> Nihil Spellbomb

Living Death -> Treasure Cruise

Dimir Signet -> Wood Elves

Simic Signet -> Sakura-Tribe Elder

Golgari Signet -> Sol Ring

Swamp -> Bojuka Bog
