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.

This deck's primary goal is to play a lot of artifacts to boost Master of Etherium and Cranial Plating and make Metalwork Colossus cheap. I keep switching out Mycosynth Wellspring & Servo Schematic for functional reprints of Ichor Wellspring (Prophetic Prism, Alchemist's Vial and the like), but but them back in for chump blocking ability and getting lands out of my deck.
I think I put too much emphasis on the bounce and not the rapid amount of artifacts I can play.

This looks like a durdle-midrange kind of affinity. Instead of just hitting early on, you have piles of synergies... but at the cost of having meaningful 1st and 2nd turn plays (ok, Echoing Truth being an exception).
Esperzoa: modern is not a format, where you get to play a creature with toughness 3, and watch it bounce an artifact repeatedly for ETB-cardadvantage in your next turns upkeep. Instead, you most likely get to watch it bounce the artifact, and then be Lightning Bolted and the bounced artifact Remanded when you recast it. Perhaps 1 Esperzoa, just because you never know when a game will go really long.
Ichor Wellspring, Mycosynth Wellspring, and Servo Schematic seem good, if you can get them to be cast repeatedly. Otherwise, they are less impressive (2 mana for a single servo token isn't considered a threat in modern). And you only have Esperzoa for repeating.

Kidchaos2084 Good looks I forgot about card draw, I put half a set so if you can get one or the other on the field eventually you'll get the other and then have options of how to spend Esperzoas ability
