Foundry Inspector Lab Man, Winds of Change These are cards that seem like the weak links in the deck to me at this current point in the meta game of cEDH. Elsha is a turn 3-5 deck no matter how you put it. Lowering her mana curve is a huge thing to do in this deck to where you can push out everything. I've sacrificed Mizzix Mastery just to have something faster in the deck that is more impactful to the board. Past in Flames turned out to be 10x's better.
Ultimately, Winds of Change is SUPER CUTE if you are trying to royally screw an opponent turn 1. If you can dump your hand turn 1 then drop WoC, cool. Otherwise, its refilling into a game where people have counter magic at all times and gives them better card advantage than you ultimately. They dumped a hand that they liked sure. But you may of gave them an even better hand of 7.
Foundry Inspector ---> Helm of Awakening all day long! or even Cloud Key Cloud Key is 100x's better than Helm. Redundancy is great... just... not on bodies in this deck. Keep Aetherium Sculptor in the deck. Cut Foundry Inspector.
As discussed above, Lab man is the weaker of the 3 "I just win" cards. He hits the board, and your opponents can respond to you drawing from an empty deck by killing him or bouncing him. Wipe Away while not heavily played in cEDH, does see play and it does remove a player when they are trying to just win the game out right. For this case alone, Thassa's Oracle just says "I win when I ETB" making her strictly better since they have to counter or stifle its ability. Stifle abilities are not big in cEDH. I alone run Trickbind now for these instances in all my blue decks. ANd I should've since AER was printed.

Back again here!
Your build now packs a serious punch, good! I'd suggest, for curve improvement, Etherium Sculptor over Foundry Inspector and adding Necromancy for redundancy in the pieces for the Worldgorger Dragon combo. Reshape could replace Fabricate .
Other than that, keep it up!

Hey There! I've got a few suggestions, but I've never had the chance to play with or against this commander so take my suggestions with a grain of salt. I don't know what your budget is, so I'll start with the more expensive options and go down from there. Here goes:
Hammer of Nazahn - Indestructible is invaluable with voltron style commanders
Champion's Helm - hexproof is also invaluable
Foundry Inspector - makes your equipment cheaper
Chaos Warp - excellent mono red removal
Seize the Day - extra combat
Brass Squire - super cheap, nice with tons of equipment
Jhoira's Familiar - super cheap, makes all your equipment cheaper
Thermopod - interesting choice, can be used to sac all your elemental dudes for a boatload of mana
Burn at the Stake - if you don't swing with your elementals, you can nuke someone out of the game
Relentless Assault - more combats!
Mask of Avacyn - hexproof is very important
Whispersilk Cloak - shroud & Unblockable : be careful with this though, if a creature has shroud, you can't equip stuff to it, so this would have to go on last.
I have a bunch more but i'll hold off until I get a better idea if I'm on the right track. :P

Hey, good budget version of Saheeli. Interesting concept using X spells rather than more big colorless creatures.
Since you're trying to win with X cost instant/soceries then consider adding Mystical Tutor as one of the expensive price cards? Could cut Planar Bridge for it? Bridge is fine to cheat onto the battlefield, but still need to activate it's ability which is a lot. Cards that can recur Mystical such as Mystic Sanctuary and Mystic Retrieval could be added use Mystical again.
Consider adding other budget artifacts or cards that have interaction with artifacts? Cards to consider adding:
- Ash Barrens
- Buried Ruin
- Talisman of Creativity
- Everflowing Chalice
- Prismatic Lens
- Skullclamp : Servos are 1/1s.
- Foundry Inspector
- Kuldotha Forgemaster
- Goblin Welder
Talisman, Chalice and Lens are other budget two drop mana artifacts which are helpful to ramp into four drop Saheeli. Forgemaster and Welder are good when you have a repeatable source of 1/1 Servos. Being able to sac a Servo(s) to cheat a better artifact onto the battlefield. Forgemaster for it's comparable price can do a lot more than Master of Etherium . Because Servos are 1/1s then this makes Skullclamp repeatable draw which is good with Crawler. Skullclamp because you're trying to win with Crawler can do more for the comparable price than Mirage Mirror .
Cards to consider cutting:
- Izzet Cluestone
- Izzet Locket
- Prototype Portal
- Planar Bridge
- Mirage Mirror
- Master of Etherium
- Darksteel Juggernaut
- Metalwork Colossus
- Hellkite Igniter
Good luck with your deck.
