Chief Engineer Discussion
2 weeks ago
Etherium Sculptor is a great card for this deck. Makes things cheaper and it also adds free mana to Walking Ballista. Getting a Lodestone Golem faster is always welcome and you can't count on having a turn 2 Chief Engineer so it acts like 5-8. I have a budget version that I am slowly adding to (just added the 4x Ballista to mine)

I know this is gonna put you into two extra colors, but, if you had blue and white in addition to your current colors you could have...
Trophy Mage, Trinket Mage Chief Engineer, Filigree Angel, Sram, Senior Edificer, Ethersworn Adjudicator, Sydri, Galvanic Genius, Padeem, Consul of Innovation, Whir of Invention, Thopter Foundry, Efficient Construction, Thopter Spy Network, Sanctum Gargoyle, Sphinx Summoner, Etherium Sculptor and Salvage Scout.
4 color fixing is hard, but artifacts is probs the best archetype for mana rocks, I suppose.

Hm. Under the radar suggestions for artifact synergy...I have an Oloro, Ageless Ascetic deck that I've geared toward artifacts (no pun intended) and here's what I've learned from piloting that deck:
Recursion is easily available in Black for any artifact creatures, such as Phyrexian Reclamation, Unburial Rites, etc. Artifacts are also good at recurring themselves, like through Scrap Trawler and Myr Retriever. So I wouldn't worry too much about recursion in Esper colors. Furthermore, you've got insane tutors in your colors, from Sphinx Summoner to Thalia's Lancers to Djeru, With Eyes Open...and since you're in the best flicker colors, you can use Conjurer's Closet, Ghostly Flicker, etc to re-use those abilities and other ETB abilities like Sharuum's or Filigree Angel.
I really love playing Chief Engineer and Inspiring Statuary for hidden little mana advantages. You could also go Thopter "tribal" with Sharding Sphinx, Thopter Spy Network, Efficient Construction, etc. All of that kinda lends itself to an "artifact aristocrat" deck of sorts, but other synergies just depend on how you want to build the deck. However, if you get a list put together, I'd be glad to take a look!
My comments lean away from combo, since that's not my playstyle, but you can also build using the aforementioned infinite combos.

Well a card or two you might suggest adding in are Chief Engineer and Grand Architect both are very affordable and provide insane amounts of ramp even if you just play Breya herself. Remember her thopters are blue, which grand architect cares about. Also if you haven't considered It, Rakdos Charm is insane and very relevant in commander.

Not really sure what format(if any) you're going for or what exactly you're deck is trying do. I've been a big fan of artifact decks for along time. Here are a few cards that I think are outstanding.
Arcbound Ravager Master of EtheriumCranial Plating Thoughtcast Bomat Courier Etherium SculptorWhir of Invention Chief EngineerMetalworker Grand ArchitectHangarback Walker Walking Ballista Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas Ensoul Artifact Vault Skirge Signal Pest
I also think that Reliquary Tower count could be cut down 4 seems excessive, maybe more Inventors' Fair 3 at most since it's legendary, I also really like using Tomb of the Spirit Dragon, Blinkmoth Nexus and Inkmoth Nexus and pretty tough to. Lastly the Artifact lands Darksteel Citadel Seat of the Synod Vault of Whispers Tree of Tales Ancient Den Great Furnace
The artifact lands with exception of Darksteel Citadel are banned in Modern and Standard.
I've been working on an unconventional artifact deck recently you can check it out here Wrath of the Machines

Cavern of Souls, obviously.
Descendants' Path, if you want to go heavy tribal.
Metallic Mimic, for extra buffs at low cost.
Obelisk of Urd, for more huge buffs.
Stoneforge Masterwork, for massive tribal buff.
Conspiracy or Xenograft, so every creature triggers the King.
Harvest Hand Flip
Pili-Pala (possibly plus Grand Architect)
