Look Efficient Construction and other Artifacts matter cards that may have slipped under the radar from Kaladesh onward.

Gut the Artifact prebuilt deck to replace proxies in this one.

Also had the suggestion of Depths of Desire. What do you think about removing the Efficient Construction and Animation Module for 2 each of Depths of Desire and Panharmonicon?

Yea I can see Efficient Construction wouldnt be that good. Ill remove it. I dont think Metallic Rebuke really fits all that well with this deck. Yes it has removal but I really need more artifacts to sac or have as defenders. I do like the Panharmonicon think I should just run 2 or do you guys think I should run some more?

add either Metallic Rebuke or Panharmonicon in place of Efficient Construction given you have so many etb triggers on your creatures

I'd highly recommend the talismans (Talisman of Dominance and Talisman of Progress) as great mana rocks. Myr Retriever and Junk Diver are some great artifact creatures to be recurred by either of your commanders and that recur artifacts on their own. Trading Post is a great recursion engine for artifacts, as well as a creature sac outlet. Krark-Clan Ironworks is a great sac outlet for your artifacts, to let you exploit various etb/ltb effects. Thopter Spy Network is a nice way to draw cards, and generates a token every turn. Faerie Artisans is pretty cool, letting you get the etb/ltb effects of opposing creatures, and you can get death triggers too with a sac outlet on the board. Efficient Construction gives you a thopter for every artifact you cast.

Answer has to be no since Efficient Construction is only triggered by the "CAST" of an artifact. You would have to change a large portion of the deck to include that card. Plus the card is kinda slow to use.
