The first thing I noticed were that you don't have much protection for Jhoira, which means less interaction. Here are some cards that can bounce/flicker her to save her: Seal of Removal, Voyager Staff, Aether Spellbomb, Salvager of Ruin, Phantom Wings, Disappear. These are good because they stay on the field, and cost little or no mana to activate, so they can be a deterrent for others to attack.
Prophetic Prism- Everflowing Chalice
Chromatic Sphere- Voyager Staff
Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer- Mirrodin Besieged (You don't make many or big enough tokens to justify him being here)
Chromatic Star- Esperzoa
Preordain- Another Land

That little guy has won me way more matches than I expected. In my Mishra's Champions I also use Esperzoa to bounce my own artifacts to play more copies of them, making glaze fiend huge in the process.
I also really like Etched Champion for some nearly guaranteed damage or for a tough blocker.
Thanks to some other suggestions, I use Prophetic Prism to help with mana but even better to bounce and replay copies to accelerate later game card draw.
I've also been experimenting with Jester's Scepter for disruption and, if I keep bouncing/replaying it, an alternate win con as I exile their entire library...

If I may suggest some artifact synergy creatures, perhaps Foundry Inspector, Steel Overseer, Burnished Hart, Jhoira's Familiar, Myr Retriever, Etherium Sculptor, Palladium Myr, Myr Enforcer, Master of Etherium, Frogmite, Chief of the Foundry, Sylvok Replica, Esperzoa, and of course, Sol Ring, despite the fact that it's not a creature.

I've got a small update for you all!
- updated the introduction
- added Veteran section
A little late but I hope everyone enjoyed their Winter and any festivities. As always, thank you all for your submissions and support!
I really shouldn't let these submissions build up...

I like Muzzio, Visionary Architect as an alternate commander for this deck to mix things up and I might try him out in place Esperzoa if that doesn't work out. I've actually been looking at a lot of Muzzio EDH decks to get ideas because there isn't a lot of information out there for Padeem EDH decks. Another way to cheat stuff out from under Knowledge Pool is always great though.
Memnarch is a different story... I don't like him. Yes, he's powerful, but he screams combo and draws so so much hate from the table the moment he plops his big fat head on the board. Maybe in a more competitive setting, but for this deck I'm purposefully avoiding including him. I'm testing Avarice Totem in here as a fair & cheaper version of him ( vs ), so we'll see how that goes.

Sorry i took so long responding!
I like it! Fun deck, very janky and I respect that.
You seem to have it all of the budget marks. I'll just suggest some cuts then.
- Soulscour cost a LOT for what it does.
- Trophy Mage doesn't seem to get anything too important.
- Esperzoa isn't... good.
- Darksteel Juggernaut not really on theme.
- Cancel why not run Counterspell?
- Azorius Charm while versatile, doesn't seem powerful enough to run.
- Revel in Riches distracts from your main gameplan, and has no synergy with the rest of the deck.
- Mechanized Production too. they're both cool and all but It's really hard to actually pull these off.
- Tamiyo's Journal unless you got a ton more clue synergies this is bad.
- Panharmonicon you really don't have enough ETB effect to make this useful.
- Obelisk of Esper you seem to have enough ramp. if you really want it replace with Commander's Sphere
So there's some cut's I'd consider. Good luck!

Next, I feel like your deck could really benefit from an artifact sacrifice outlet. A lot of your cards benefit from your artifacts dying, and it's good to be able to trigger those effects on your own terms. Although there are no free sac outlets on a budget, there are some pretty powerful options available. Phyrexia's Core is a land that lets you sacrifice artifacts, while Herald of Anguish is a powerful threat that can sac your artifacts to remove troublesome creatures. Reshape is slightly more expensive, but is a great tutor for artifacts.
One other neat card that I like in Esper decks is Ethersworn Adjudicator. It's just a very powerful piece of repeatable removal, and works very nicely with you holding up mana to activate Sydri.
I'm not so sure about the Tunnel Vision combos. Not only are they very mana-intensive, the combos work over two turns, leaving you very vulnerable to various forms of disruption. Finally, Revel in Riches feels a bit weak here. You have very few ways to actually destroy opposing creatures, and all your board wipes that destroy get rid of Revel as well.

You don't until you side in relic. It's just either Dormant Gomazoa or Esperzoa to get the required 16 and since there are only Relic of Progenitus's in the deck to return, Dormant Gomazoa has a better chance of attacking if opponents target you. It's also less mana intensive. Esperzoa is a better blocker, but you would have to constantly replay it.
