Sigh, If only Atraxa was red. Assemble the Legions would be overpowered. But maybe... just maybe... you could add Dack Fayden

I did not see it anywhere in the suggestions but Dack Fayden is insane for stealing things; if you can use his ult then all of your spells steal things. Plus if there are potent artifacts in your meta he just nabs those off the bat!

All in all I like the concept of this deck!

MagicalHacker - Well, looking through the list of Planeswalkers, I would say that Teferi has the mettle to be Tier 1 ;P
More serious answer: Tezzeret the Seeker might be able to do similar-ish shenanigans to Arcum. JtMS can probably just out-value opponents, then win with High Tide or something (though not being able to flashback High Tide makes him weaker than Jace VP). Jace Beleren is a personal Howling Mine, so he has that going for him. Beleren would probably end of in 2.5 or upper 3, though. Dack Fayden is similar to both Jaces in that he can help out-values opponents. Since he can also play red, he could probably go with a 'Midrange Spellslinger' build, like Mizzix or Melek. However, without the cost reduction/copying, I do not know what he would bring to the table. Probably also a Tier 3 commander because he is value without purpose.

First I have to say this is a great idea. I am inclined to build something like this myself sometimes...

If you want to keep the price low I can only suggest you play Talisman of Dominance and Talisman of Indulgence instead of the cluestones, also Mind Stone and Fellwar Stone over other mana artifacts for ...Coalition Relic and Chromatic Lantern are worth the 3 mana, maybe Cultivator's Caravan too, but the others usually aren't. If you have some money to invest I believe you can't go without Mana Crypt, Mox Opal, Mox Diamond, Chrome Mox and Grim Monolith in an artifact heavy deck (and basically in any commander deck, that doesn't globally punish players for having artifacts).

I have found Treasure Keeper to be really good, especially when you can bring it back again from the grave several times (with goblin welder or Daretti, Scrap Savant for example). Daretti, Ingenious Iconoclast is a must as well - protects itself, generates artifacts and kills a threat after the other.

Knowledge Pool is another lock with Teferi...should be in here.

Mycosynth Lattice makes everything better. You can counter stuff with Ice Cave even if it isn't in your colours, Padeem gives all your permanents hexproof,...you could add Vandalblast for a big boardwipe, Dack Fayden, March of the Machines, Karn, Silver Golem, whatever...

I currently play a 4 colour artifact deck, but it has UBR in it too. Maybe you can find some synergies that might fit in your deck as well: Workshop Party

You could play Mycosynth Lattice to makie the artifact count go up and then there are a number of awful combos with that card, for example Vandalblast, Null Rod, March of the Machines, Karn, Silver Golem...also Dack Fayden, Master of Etherium, Tezzeret the Seeker , Copy Artifact and many more become significantly better.

I would play black instead of green though. You don't play many really essential green cards here and you have to compare them to (for example): Vampiric Tutor, Demonic Tutor, Nether Void, Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas, Silas Renn, Seeker Adept (possible commander!), Dark Confidant, Daretti, Ingenious Iconoclast...are your green cards really better than what black has to offer for this deck?

I like the idea of using Boomerang and Unsummon and maybe Uyo, Silent Prophet try to get them to use what you gave them and psyche them out after they pay costs for something (Not great for mana, but just an idea). I use Djinn of Infinite Deceits in my GU deck like that. Dack Fayden seems like a good choice, lots of give and take, If you control something until end of turn then give it to someone else I believe it stays with them. Act of Aggression seems like a must have for that reason, you can take it and hand it off to someone because instant speed and it is Phyresis mana.

Dack Fayden may be wiser though, as he can draw, then discard; which is incredibly valuable.
