Inventors' Fair is anothe good land you could use. Also grab an Ancient Den and Darksteel Citadel as well to maximize artifact synergies. Refurbish , Emeria, The Sky Ruin , and Open the Vaults can also let you get things out of your graveyard.
Reya is probably too expensive.
Cut Heavenly Blademaster, you don't have enough creatures to take advantage of her.
Kemba, Kha Regent would be a more appropriate one because she generates tokens as blockers and swarmers if neede.
I'm not huge on Nahiri, the Lithomancer . 5 mana to not really get a lot done but make a 1/1 and equip it once. Similarly, Ajani Goldmane doesn't seem to do a lot in your deck. I think walkers like Ugin, the Ineffable and Elspeth, Sun's Champion might just straight up be better fits. You want to capitalize on that artifact synergy.
If you absolutely need something expensive and threatening, Zetalpa, Primal Dawn or Heliod, God of the Sun are good options with baked-in indestructible.
Land Tax and Smothering Tithe may also be very big includes. The second generates artifacts for anything that needs them as well as makes lots of mana or slows your opponents down considerably. Both are good for you.
Finally, you have some fun infinite mana generation in there but... what does it do? You've got no real payoff for abusing Basalt Monolith. There's no way to chain or bounce things, no aetherflux resrvoir, etc. Maybe instead of Doubling Cube , you run more linear ramp like Sword of the Animist , Explorer's Scope , or Land Tax

Karmic Guide and Reveillark can recur each other and create infinite etb triggers if you have a free sac outlet in play (e.g. Altar of Dementia ). In the specific case of having Altar in play, you mill out your opponents just by assembling these 3 cards. Since Reveillark also brings back another creature upon leaving the battlefield, you could loop, say, a Perilous Myr and have infinite damage on your opponents.
Also, I would recommend Emeria, The Sky Ruin , it may be a little above your budget, but it's a very strong land that helps with what your deck is already trying to do. It only doesn't see more play because of how restrictive it is with Plains.

Bounty Agent > Odric, Master Tactician : With our reasonable amount of recursion in the deck, the agent can be a good removal against our opponent's commander or other legendary artifact, creature or enchantment

Have you considered some mana rocks like Heraldic Banner to help boost Mik and also buff your creatures?

squadcarxmar Thanks for the suggestion! I really wanted to include Emeria, The Sky Ruin but it was a little outside of my budget at the time and I wanted to spend more money on core cards, like Archangel of Thune , rather than on lands. As I upgrade it, I'll definitely pick up a copy and add it in there. I predominantly play casual multiplayer Commander anyway, so lands coming in tapped is not a big deal at all.

Neat, I like this idea. Land suggestion: Emeria, The Sky Ruin . I know it's a monocolor land that comes in tapped but later on in games, it is a free return to battlefield from graveyard effect that avoids a lot of destruction of itself seeing as most boardwipes won't hit it and a decent amount of spot removal won't hit it either.
You could take out Secluded Steppe in my opinion if you didn't want to remove a basic land for it. I didn't see anything that benefited from cycling. If you like keeping it for cycling that's understandable still.
