The list as it is now is far too reliant on your commander. If Kaalia gets removed (and she probably will since she tends to draw a lot of hate), then you'll be a sitting duck with that mana curve and no ramp to play your high costed creatures. I would cut your number of creatures in half and replace them with plenty of ramp, removal, and protection for Kaalia. I would even consider some haste enablers so she can attack the moment she hits the field.
Cut any creatures with "Flameblast Syndrome" meaning they don't do anything the moment they hit the field like Flameblast Dragon. If you have to wait a turn to get any use out of them, then you can safely cut them to help other aspects of your deck.
If you run all basics, you're likely not going to be able to get the colors you need to cast your commander or any other spells reliably. I would look for some lands that tap for more than one of your color and replace some of those basics. There are plenty of budget lands that would do the trick.

Thanks for the suggestions. Surrak is a great idea, im not sure who i would remove from the deck to add him in. I thought about exploring cards other then creatures, i have a few ways to get rid of nikya if i wanted to go this route. sabertooth like you mentioned, but you could also haveUlvenwald Tracker get one of the big guys to fight nikya. or you could have Apocalypse Hydra , and Flameblast Dragon kill nikya off as well.

First and most importantly, have you considered naming this deck "Dalakos's Artifact Stack Attack," because I think that would be wonderful.
Beyond that, though, have you considered the following:
Balefire Dragon (because it's fantastic), Captain Lannery Storm (because she's a warm body that ramps), Cephalid Constable (because it's a criminally underrated masterpiece), Daring Saboteur (because it loots and is evasive af), Fervent Champion (because it's an excellent voltron), Flameblast Dragon (because removal is nice), Grenzo, Havoc Raiser (because stealing spells is fun), Hellkite Tyrant (because 20 artifacts, with this deck? Sure, you'll need help, but that's what your opponents are for!), Hero of Oxid Ridge (in case you have any pesky token strats in your meta), Legion Loyalist (because why not just give your creatures all the keywords at that point), Markov Blademaster (because double strike is just really strong), Niv-Mizzet, Parun (in case storm exists in your meta), Prophetic Flamespeaker (because it's got double strike, trample, and card draw), Rapacious One (because INFINITE BLOCKERS), Scab-Clan Berserker (in case, once again, of Storm), Scourge of the Throne (because it's real good), Tandem Lookout (because drawing two cards per turn is nice), Tyrant's Familiar (because, once again, removal is wonderful to have), Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor (because it basically creates tokens for you), Windreader Sphinx (because it's a LOT of card draw), Basilisk Collar (because lifelink is super good), Batterskull (see prior), Champion's Helm (because hexproof is important), Embercleave (for obvious reasons), Golem-Skin Gauntlets (because more power is better), Heirloom Blade (because it's a steep stat boost and a death trigger, maybe), Loxodon Warhammer (because lifelink is basically super-vigilance anyway), Prowler's Helm (because evasion is nice), Rogue's Gloves (because card draw is good to have), Shadowspear (because it's nuts), The Sword Cycle (because you feel like droppin 16,000,000,000$), Sword of Vengeance (because holy keywords, Batman!)

Balefire Dragon does not have an on-attack triggered ability, it has a combat damage trigger. This ability will trigger whenever Balefire deals combat damage to a player, regardless of other circumstances. So if Balefire goes unblocked, and actually deals combat damage to the opponent, then yes.
For actual on-attack triggers, such as Flameblast Dragon , no, they would not trigger.

Neat deck tho!

Apparently I can't read today. Anyway, if you like beefy dragons, how about ones that come with burn attached like Flameblast Dragon ?
