cool deck, would you consider splashing white for Hidden Stockpile. It would work as a sacrifice outlet, scry and token generator and could feed your Defiant Salvager and Yahenni, Undying Partisan. It also helps turn on Fatal Push more reliably. Splashing white would be pretty easy with Concealed Courtyard, even Aether Hub or you could use a tapped/cycling land which would be cheaper.

Great deck Gregorian_17! I think it's a great deck, but with a couple of improvements it could become overpowered and fantastic. I'll try and playtest this deck a little bit, and get back to you on that.
Right now, you have a lot of advantages for your creatures dying, but I feel that you need more sacrifice outlets. It's hard to find these cards that allow you to sacrifice creatures in standard, but Defiant Salvager is probably good to have at least one of. Morbid Curiosity is also a useful draw card that can help you bring in extra value. Ruthless Knave and Arguel's Blood Fast Flip are really useful to gain life and mana.
Unfortunately, most of the sacrifice cards are red or not in standard, and sometimes both. Either way, I think this deck can be really powerful, although consider splashing some modern cards. If you want any more advice, feedback, or card choice decisions, just contact me on my wall.
Very creative deck, definitely worth an upvote :)

Fatal Push can kill Gleaming Barrier but also does a lot more. But if it's just about killing your own artifacts, these are some other options:
- Makeshift Munitions
Also a side note: Inspiring Statuary would effectively let you use treasures for mana without sacrificing them (so you can save them until Marionette Master comes out).

I'm thinking that maybe Costly Plunder is a better sac outlet here since it give card advantage ? Also it costs less to cast, maybe you could sac your creature at instant speed if it is to be removed ?
If you really want a creature though, Defiant Salvager look great too, you can sac that creature you stole for free on your end step.
A more aggressive spell that goes well with the deck would be Fling , you can use it to deal that last bit of damage.

Maybe think about Sram's Expertise? It makes tokens which are relevant and you can cast a lot of your deck off of it. Also, if you're having trouble getting your artifacts binned, maybe try Defiant Salvager.
