Sram, Senior Edificer? Captain's Claws should give you a little resilliency in the number of creatures hitting the board. Cranial Plating is a classic inclusion in a lot of lists. Danitha Capashen, Paragon feels playable here, not amazing. Flayer Husk/Paradise Mantle gives a little combo potential. Stone Haven Outfitter gives some much needed removal resistance.
Past that its the usual 'counts artifacts' cards. Dispatch and so forth.

Faith's Shield v Apostle's Blessing? Relic Seeker v Stonehewer Giant to lower curve? Dispatch v Path to Exile? I'd also recommend some beaters like Strata Scythe//Empyrial Plate/Lodestone Myr/Metalwork Colossus, and some ramp pieces like Blinkmoth Urn/Inspiring Statuary/Semblance Anvil. And how do you have the subtype category, is it an option of custom made? Looks good otherwise. Hope this helps <3

Heh. This is really cute, and an unusual take on the commander. I like it! You definitely get my +1.
I do have a few suggestions, though.
Have you considered Mycosynth Lattice? The card seems good, and it would let you equip your lands to things XD
You need more methods of tutoring for your pieces, since the deck is built around a single card in some of the worst tutoring colors. You have the two "big ones", but have you considered Academy Rector and possibly Plea for Guidance?
Speaking of enchantments, Pia's Revolution might help you in this deck by acting as a second copy of your commander.
Since you're bouncing lots of things to hand each turn, and you're running a decent number of mana rocks, have you considered increasing your rock count and playing a Paradox Engine? It would let you cast all of your artifacts essentially for free. Speaking of casting artifacts for free, Semblance Anvil might do what you want here :)
I'm not quite sure what to cut, but Weapons Trainer is bad and I am not a fan XD

I looked over your list one more time and found another swap. Indomitable Archangel for Leonin Abunas. Abunas doesn't do anything else useful, the angel at least has decent stats and flying, which correct me if I'm wrong but it looks like your deck is sorely lacking flying.
If you're worried about metalcraft, I would argue that if you can't activate it with this deck(look at your pie chart dude) then you're losing big-time anyway.
Yeah you should probably run Dispatch for that very same reason. Take out whichever of the two other spells you like less. Metalcraft is a thing this deck should very certainly take advantage of. You have equipment recursion in your command zone! Do you know at any given draw in any game for this deck, the card you are most likely to get is an artifact? Not a land, but an artifact? Go all out! ;)

I play a puresteel cherios deck Cheap & Cherio and while it is a combo deck, it did use the Goblin Gaveleer as a combat damage option. It isn't the most consistent deck in the world but it is a fun deck. Now the cherios decks typically run 16 or less lands and use Paradise Mantle and Mox Opal to supplement this, your deck could probably drop to 20 land, since your curve is so low. In addition to those suggested by GoldenMunchkin other cards to look at are Swiftfoot Boots, Galvanic Blast, Dispatch,Leering Emblem and maybe Sweatworks Brawler.
Have fun brewing your deck!

Dispatch. You'll likely always have metalcraft online.

You mentioned that you get combos assembled on turn 15... I have to ask, what are you playing this against? While I've seen (and built) some particularly horrific control decks designed to stall well into turn 20, there's no way I would let you assemble this combo. Not that it would make a difference--any semi-competitive long-term control deck would have rendered your combo useless ages ago through cards like Ensnaring Bridge.
When it comes down to it, if you want to build a colourless competitive deck, you have two real options: Tron or Affinity. I'm going to try to limit my feedback to suggestions you can easily slot into your current deck, but I do not think you will ever make this overly competitive. Darksteel Forge is too much mana for a card that does not win you the game that turn. Altar of Shadows is an absurd amount of mana for a card that not only doesn't win you the game, but requires you to spend another absurd amount of mana just to make use of it.
Worldslayer is too much mana, but its a fun card, and exactly the kind of unusual card I'd build a deck around. But there are better ways of doing this--you'll want a mix of tron and naturally indestructible creatures.
I think you should really consider what direction you want to go before asking for feedback. You're kind of all over the place. You have too many cards you are only running one copy of, and no real synergy other than "colourless". You have artifact-matters cards, but also Eldrazi. Your converted mana cost is blisteringly high.
I know that all sounds a bit harsh, and for that I apologize. However, you asked on your forum thread how to make this deck more competitive, and the simple answer is "figure out what you wish to do first, and optimize from there."
That said, I'd hate to be that guy who gives negative feedback without some guidance on the way forward. Here are a couple suggestions:
There's no reason to run any lands that enter tapped--they only slow you down. Add three more Darksteel Citadels to utilize artifact synergies, then add some black producing lands for Cranial Plating.
I'll keep an eye on this deck and your comments, and provide more specific feedback once I have a better understanding about what exactly you are trying to do.

Also you might be interested in Tempered Steel since it gives your whole team a solid buff
Also Dispatch if you need creature removal
