psionictemplar First of all thanks for your comment and suggestions!

  1. Actually since the beginning of the deck building process I never thought from that perspective, I always had the mindset that the tron lands were the way to go! Mainly because when I started building I was testing things like Bonder's Ornament + Dross Scorpion + Ashnod's Altar + Workshop Assistant to keep drawing which required a lot of colorless mana. However, you got a point especially now without Expedition Map it's very difficult to assemble tron and I can easily run into color screw. I'll rethink this deck without the tron lands.

  2. Actually I had, it's very flexible but discarded it because of the mana cost. I'll test it in the tronless version xD.

  3. My bad I forgot the "Spend only black mana this way" rule. Thanks for noticing it!

  4. In early tests I used Muddle the Mixture but to be honest I didn't explore completely the mechanic itself. I might give another chance and take a deep look into it.

Scrap Trawler!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Sorry, I love that card. Wish it was legendary. Also, Krark-Clan Ironworks. I don't really know what Daretti decks generally want to do in terms of comboing, but if you are interested in a really cool combo check this out: https://blogs.magicjudges.org/ftw/2018/03/19/how-does-the-krark-clan-ironworks-combo-work/. Also you might consider some other artifacts combo cards like Dross Scorpion. Also, not particularly sexy cards, but you might want to bring down the CMC of your mana rocks a little -- I, for example, have never been scared to see a Caged Sun across the table -- it just doesn't do as much as people think, and with only 26 Mountain ... well, it might not be worth the cash. I would suggest stuff like Mind Stone. Also, I've seen people put Armillary Sphere in so ... many ... artifact decks. Its not actually ramp -- it just drew you two lands. I would suggest taking it out for maybe a Burnished Hart. Always love to see artifact decks!

cool deck! i am psyched about mono red and love janky artifact combos.
looks like you could maybe use an Inventors' Fair.
any thoughts about Unwinding Clock?
also i know you dont list your combos but i found at least one that gives you infinite mana and ETB triggers - Dross Scorpion + Myr Turbine + Krark-Clan Ironworks. and then your win cons would be Reckless Fireweaver or Spine of Ish Sah. but if you want other options there is always Altar of the Brood or Staff of Domination.
also could look at Codex Shredder over Perpetual Timepiece just depends if you ever use the 2nd ability or not.
anyway just some thoughts! cheers and keep having fun!!!!

Cool deck! Ever considered Codex Shredder or Conqueror's Galleon  Flip? Return cards from grave in colorless!

These might interest you too: Lotus Petal, Salvaging Station, Lion's Eye Diamond (infinite mana with Salvaging Station and Karn), Dross Scorpion, Cauldron of Souls, Scrapyard Recombiner (finds all kinds of dudes including Metalworker and Voltaic Construct (thanks errata!)), Meteor Golem, Scour from Existence, Null Brooch, Warping Wail (surprisingly versatile. at worst it can be used as a delayed ritual to get Karn out a turn sooner), Empowered Autogenerator, Umbral Mantle, Mirrorpool, Endbringer
