Some things I like:
I also like the fact that this deck seems like it can function very well without the commander.
Some suggestions to put in:
Dowsing Dagger - just a good equipment that, ya'know, turns into a black lotus later.
Sram, Senior Edificer - you desperately need card draw my friend.
Puresteel Paladin - I see him in the maybe board. Put him in.
Stonehewer Giant - never underestimate tutors.
Leonin Shikari - two words: combat tricks.
Dispatch - good removal.
Swiftfoot Boots - protection, haste.
Sword of the Animist - you'll be attacking a lot, this will ramp you a lot.
Open the Armory - yayyy more tutors.
Hammer of Nazahn - auto equip.
Sun Titan - omg dude. 60% can be recurred by this guy. SO worth it.
Foundry Inspector - discounted artifacts.
Sculpting Steel - copy all your best stuff.
O-Naginata - double strike is useless without trample.
Inspiring Statuary - all of your equipment are now mana rocks for your creatures.
Some things to take out:
Grappling Hook - too expensive.
Hammer of Ruin - to limited in what it does, to conditional.
Empyrial Plate - you'll never have enough cards in hand to make this worth it. Better options out there.
Bonesplitter - just a weak equipment.
Cranial Plating - Illegal in a Balan ddeck because of the activated ability
White Knight - lackluster.
Paladin en-Vec - focus on equipment creatures. Stick to the plan!
Hope some of this helps friend!

Soul Warden, Soul's Attendant, and Suture Priest are solid for fighting aggressive decks, and since you have NO removal, I would recommend a Journey to Nowhere or two. Finally, Bonesplitter is a fine card.

I put the followed cards into the sideboard and removed -1 Angelic Renewal and the playset of Auramancer (Feldon's Cane is enough). Afterwards I also removed -1 Bonesplitter now it seems worthless have one at all. Minamo Scrollkeeper have to be added! Thanks Tardigrade_Cain!

I really like the idea of this deck, and I think this deck could be really powerful in pauper (I myself being a huge fan of pauper) I think you should mainboard Library of Leng and add Minamo Scrollkeeper maybe sideboard Echoing Truth Lifelink Bonesplitter and Angelic Renewal I would increase Empyrial Armor by one considering its the focus of your deck. Otherwise I think its a pretty good deck, with a focus thats hard to sideboard against.

Hey Airakk! Thanks for the comments!
I found this deck relied heavily on its tribal synergies, which is why I consider it a tribal deck. The main win condition is to use Armament Master as a Kor lord to pump up your other kor creatures, though it certainly occasionally wins with just the kor-equipment synergies.
You are correct, you don't play your 0-mana equipment until you have a draw engine online in most cases. With a 0 cost equipment, unless you plan on equipping it immediately there is rarely a reason to play it. The deck can put out lethal pretty often turn 3, and ideal draws look like T1 Kor Duelist or Kitesail Apprentice, T2 Puresteel Paladin, T3 dump 5-10 0 mana equipment and play a Armament master, equip most of your stuff to Armament Master for free with Puresteel and swing with one of the two other creatures for 20+ damage. Puresteel gives you a bit of extra mana with Paradise Mantle, so you can often play both Armament Master and a Cranial Plating or Captain's Claws turn 3, or a couple Bonesplitters.
Sorry you find the deck Meh! I think you may not understand it well, or may not have tested it significantly. I don't think it is the most competitive deck in modern, but in my experience it is quite powerful and surprisingly consistent and I think given the synergies it would be strange to not consider it a Kor tribal deck.
That being said if you're looking to make it more tribal, cutting Sram for some more Kor synergy cards will do that, and the deck will still perform quite well I think! As GodTierPancake pointed out Stone Haven Outfitter is a nice fit!

I have a couple of questions.
Why are the cards organized by common? Pauper is all cards that were printed in common (paper) and released at common online.
Bastion Inventor is a cool idea, but if you make these adjustments you can improve the aggro curve and artificer value:
-2  Bastion Inventor
+1  Aether Chaser
+1  Aether Swooper
-1  Metalspinner's Puzzleknot
+1  Pyrite Spellbomb
-1  Sweatworks Brawler
+1  Inventor's Goggles **This card works very well in your deck.
-3  Bonesplitter
-1  Welding Sparks This is great for the SB.
+4  Thoughtcast YOU NEED CARD DRAW
I hope this redesign helps.

You got the point on those, but somehow i think that there are better early game creatures in Modern and not dying to Lightning Bolt is not so relevant right now as the whole card is not so much played.
Leonin Den-Guard Is still pretty much dead card without Bonesplitter because it isn't doing much alone. That is too one reason i don't really like it. It fits much better in more equipment heavy decks.
I'm not master of Modern Mid-Range decks so i'm not writing longer opinions on this one but i will say that i like much more deck like this in current meta: https://www.mtggoldfish.com/archetype/modern-mardu-midrange-34595#paper
And just saying that current meta is not that fast really. Yes GDS can put 5/5 on play turn 2 and Affinity/Storm can kill very fast, but i think that slower strategies are very good too. Like Titan Shift is one of the most played decks and it is not fast at all. Same of course with Jeskai/UW control decks.
In nutshell, i would go more mid-range style but everything can always work.
