Thanks Snacrifice for the comment.
I'm going to place these cards in the sideboard to definately playtest them as I really like Druidic Satchel, Filigree Familiar and Pristine Talisman I do think they will be nice additions to this deck.

Some suggestions(though the deck looks fun already!:D)
Fountain of Youth is a free drop, Braidwood Cup (also see Marble Chalice for a colored version) is the opposite- costs 3 to drop, but guarantees you trigger at least a counter on Karlov every turn. Skullmead Cauldron does the same but with an extra buff.
Alternatively, Pristine Talisman gives you the same thing for a few more cents and doubles as a mana rock :D
High Market got reprinted so it's super cheap now, Pious Kitsune gives you another white tap-to-gain-life. Druidic Satchel is good stuff that gets you life as well.Filigree Familiar is Solemn Simulacrum's cheaper pet.

This deck looks awesome! I need to try this for sure. I would go heavier on Trophy Mage and lighter on Inspiring Statuary. That way you can still make sure you get Statuary without clogging up your hand with extra copies. I might even put in one copy of another 3 cost artifact such as Lifecrafter's Bestiary or Filigree Familiar just to make sure Mage has a target if you already have Statuary in play or in your hand. Add the 2 extra copies of Statuary to your sideboard in case your opponent has a lot of artifact removal. I also really like Reverse Engineer in this deck, and I would consider filling out the playset. For a sideboard, definitely include Metallic Rebuke. You might also consider going down an Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger or two and putting in Gearhulks, Kozilek, the Great Distortion, Void Winnower so you don't get hit by the legendary rule. Really great deck idea! I love it!

Hmm, i think the turtles are underwhelming for utility. You can handle Baral, Chief of Compliance in your budget to fit in to get your Startled Awake Flip discounted. Problem with aggro decks? Filigree Familiar will block for you, gain life and draw cards...also its very good with Engulf the Shore. Crush of Tentacles is always an option and its easy to cast for you.

If you do go the Panharmonicon / Eldrazi Displacer route, a few Filigree Familiar, Thought-Knot Seer as well as a couple of Harsh Scrutiny, Transgress the Minds maindeck can be pretty gross... (I've been on the other side of the table...I know)...down side...Reflector Mage which was also in my friends deck is now bannedhammered. Also Glint-Nest Crane was good with Panharmonicon as well as for finding them and Prophetic Prism which synergize well...

Myr Retriever/Altar of the Brood? Reshape? Trophy Mage to fetch Ensnaring Bridge/Lightning Greaves? Whir of Invention? Executioner's Capsule? Scepter of Fugue? Whip of Erebos If you decide to focus on a smaller band of creatures with Trophy Mage you could run a murderous midrange aggro with pacing changes in the SB, cutting the awkward transition to Inkwell Leviathan type creatures and instead just running more Cogwork Assembler for the lategame, Etched Champion/Foundry Inspector/ Chief of the Foundry/Master of Etherium/Scarecrone/Scrap Trawler/Trinisphere/Filigree Familiar/Bottle Gnomes etc would all be useful, but especially Master of Etherium and Chief of the Foundry to negate the heartless summoning drawback. With the tutoring a single Pili-Pala to threaten combo becomes functional. A couple of Thoughtcast would go a long way to providing card draw.Latest set has provided a real toolbox for this style, and there are enough search cards to support that.All told, look around there is a lot out there, a lot of options and fun tools kicking around. Its just getting them all to fit together in a way that you both like and makes sense thats tricky.

Talus21 Thanks for the feedback. After looking at the deck I decided to cut one Cloudblazer, one Spire Patrol, an Arborback Stomper from the maindeck, and one Filigree Familiar. I replaced these with a playset of Thraben Inspector as you suggested. I think it looks like a good change. I'm hesitant to remove Prophetic Prisms from the deck, as they are ssooo good with a Panharmonicon out. Drawing 2 cards for 2 mana is nice, and I didn't want to lower the artifact count too much for the Glint-Nest Cranes. They can also be really nice to fix mana with the colorless lands to avoid paying energy or life. I also added one Metallic Rebuke to the sideboard and changed a few other cards. Thanks!
