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

Thank you so much for the input! I really appreciate it. :D
Some of the suggestions i've already had in the deck prior and for some reason or the other i felt like they didn't work that well yet (a lack of skill might also be a reason here), but i'm really intrigued by:
Cauldron of Souls – would be even greater if i hadn't just taken out most of my ETBs :D
Empowered Autogenerator – that one might just be plain awesome, just because it slowly ramps me to lategame and my local meta is quite light on artifact removal.
Inspiring Statuary – I've had it in when i played fewer artifacts before then took it out. But looking at what the deck has become now, i'm seriously considering putting it back in!
Gilded Lotus – I have no idea why i took it out. Especially cause i'm a little light on the 5-drops and i prefer a smooth curve for my Kozilek counters. ;)

Hey man! Good first draft! I like some of the ideas in here. I have some constructive criticism for you, so, as brutally honest as I will be with my suggestions, keep in mind I’m just offering my best advice on how to improve this list. I tested this deck a bit and here’s some thoughts I have:
More Tutor / Draw: You’re running very little card advantage, which I noticed when I was testing this deck. There isn’t enough dig or deck manipulation going on here. Basically every time I found myself durdling. Here are some suggestions:
- Sensei's Divining Top
- Scroll Rack
- Crystal Ball
- Courier's Capsule
- Wheel of Fortune
- Stroke of Genius
- Mystic Remora
- Jace Beleren
- Long-Term Plans
- Land Tax
- Academy Rector
- Idyllic Tutor
- Madblind Mountain
- Fetch Lands. Literally any fetches.
More spot removal: Your deck doesn’t have a lot of ways of dealing out targeted removal. Mass Land D and other sweeper spells are great and all, but you also need ways of handling individual problems as they arrive. Here are some suggestions I have:
- Path to Exile / Swords to Plowshares
- Seal of Cleansing / Dispeller's Capsule
- Return to Dust
- Crush Contraband
- Shattering Pulse
- Shattering Spree
- Chaos Warp
- Lightning Bolt
More Persistent harassment: You’re running MLD, Tax, but you aren’t running a whole lot of effects to consistently torment the opponent. Smokestack, Pendrell Mists, Kataki, War's Wage, Manabarbs keep pressure on your opponents. Even just running more stuff to slow things down (Winter Orb, Tangle Wire, Kismet, Rule of Law, Stranglehold etc.) would be useful here.
Consider less creatures, more enchantments: Hatebears are cool, but consider the fact that they are easier to kill than their enchantment counterparts. Magus of the Moon dies much easier than Blood Moon and you want these effects to have a good return on investment. This one is more food for thought than actual criticism.
Suggestions for cuts: Hall of Heliod's Generosity (?): It’s a great card, but right now you aren’t running enough Enchantments to justify it. Most of the time it’s going to just tap for colorless. If you run more Enchantments, it’s a keeper! (I think I’m going to try and find a slot for my own deck)
Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain: This is pretty vestigial. It’s not really pulling much weight. Cut it.
Karn, Silver Golem: See above.
Tomik, Distinguished Advokist: I get what you’re going with here, but you’re blowing up your lands anyway, making them untargetable is kind of moot. There’s a bunch of hatebears I’d rather run in this slot.
Saltblast: This card is kind of bad. Costs waaay too much for targeted removal. Also, is completely dead against decks that run white. I’d honestly remove this and replace it with Wrath of God instead.
Karn, the Great Creator: Not doing enough. I see the combo with Mycosynth Lattice, but Hellkite Tyrant is a much better combo.
Empowered Autogenerator: Too slow, too expensive. It’s not as good as it looks. Ideally, rocks should slot into the 0-3 CC range. If you desperately wanted something in the 4 slot, why not just run Thran Dynamo instead? It’s more consistent.
Firemind Vessel – See above.

Looks good! I would suggest removing these cards as they might be overcosted or not as impactful as some others: Mage Slayer, Treacherous Terrain, Beast Within, Expedite, Savage Summoning, Surge of Strength, Descendants' Path, Bloodthorn Taunter, Harbinger of the Hunt, Kilnmouth Dragon, Prowling Serpopard.
Also you might like these: Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma, Heraldic Banner, Draconic Disciple, Knollspine Dragon, Worn Powerstone, Empowered Autogenerator, Gratuitous Violence, Mosswort Bridge, Spinerock Knoll, Hashep Oasis

I imagine Cabal Stronghold might be up your alley. Lashwrithe is just a fun an efficient beater in black that works with any of your small guys as well. Heck, as a control deck Empowered Autogenerator should keep your high curved sated in time. Mind Sludge seems like reasonably powerful discard power.
Given this is control idk why you wouldn't have draw power such as Phyrexian Arena , or even Underworld Connections , Coercive Portal . Ob Nixilis Reignited even serves those goals with some removal splashed in.
