Whenever a nontoken creature enters the battlefield, if Genesis Chamber is untapped, that creature's controller creates a 1/1 Myr artifact creature token.

Genesis Chamber Discussion

Here's how I think about this commander: You want two types of creature token. A) ones that are cheap/free to flood the board and B) ones that are copies of cool creatures with abilities you can exploit.
Your A Column is pretty solid. The only one I'd add is Genesis Chamber and/or The Locust God... Things that make Treasure or Clue tokens are pretty good because they'll add value OR attack. Additionally, Since lots of your small creatures are on ETB trigers Panharmonicon could be good.
Your Column B is so-so. You've got Feldon of the Third Path and Helm of the Host, but those are pretty slow and obvious. Mimic Vat, Heat Shimmer, Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, Rite of Replication, Supplant Form, Cackling Counterpart, Zndrsplt's Judgment and Fated Infatuation all could get you the token you need to make a deadly strike out of nowhere. An interesting combo here could be Precursor Golem so targeted instants make TONS of copies if you turn your army into golems. Creatures with Embalm and Eternalize Mechanics could fall into this category, too.
Great Brew, man! I wish you luck and I look forward to how this evolves!

Ok, i have a couple issues with this deck:
1: Its a Stuffy Doll deck. How can you NOT have Pariah. Just, how? It's practically a crime. Also Pariah's Shield. Just put in a couple more indestructible like Darksteel Myr any you'll be completely free from damage.
2: Dead cards. Without guardian combo, all Altar of the Brood actually does is fill up the moldrotha player's graveyard a bit and make your Immortal Coil and Lich's Mastery worse. Maybe consider a different payoff, such as Genesis Chamber or Soul Warden, as they are not dead draws without the guardian, as you're getting lots of ETBs of nontoken creatures from all your flickering. Also, Leveler and Timesifter. Why? You don't have tremendously many high CMC spells, and leveler is an ETB: you can't gift the lack of library to someone.
3: You have very little synergy with her uptick. There is only a couple miracle spells and only 2 fetches. Consider putting in some of the panoramas (card link example: Jund Panorama. Remember that they can be put in Esper decks cos no colour identity) or if your fine with spending a couple bucks, some fetch lands, Myriad Landscape, or anything of that kidney
5: Eerie Interlude + commander ultimate = profit. Also Flickerwisp, Long Road Home, etc. And Eldrazi Displacer. You have a bunch of colourless lands, and if you throw in a couple mana rocks (which u should probably do btw. You only have swol ring :P ) and you'll have all the colourless mana you need.

It would be an imrpovement if you manage to cut the deck down to 60 cards and lowered your curve.
Experiment Kraj doesn't do much for you. You have to go into a color you don't play just for that single card, and it's not that great here. Having Gobbling Ooze's ability is redundant, and having Scavenging Ooze's ability is close to redundant. That leaves you with a 6 CMC, Off color 4/6, that can tap to put a +1/+1 counter on something. Maybe do something else if your opponent has Activated Abilities.
Speaking of, Gobbling Ooze is super underpowered. It's a 5-drop that dies to bolt, if you don't have another creature and a mana open. It is especially bad as a 4-of, since, (sorry to sound like a broken recond), its ability is redundant. Having multiple on the battlefield is only a 3/3 creature in difference.
Mephitic Ooze, Cool as it is, seems off here. You included your artifact package because of it, right? Genesis Chamber is really not good outside of a combo deck trying to abuse it. It is more likely to hurt you than help you.
I like Bloodhall Ooze, I think it's a powerful card. Probably the second best card in your deck, but having it in a non-red deck, as a 2-of, I think it's just not consistant enough to actually be good.
I can see three ways to take this deck.
Either as an agresseive Jund Ooze tribal deck, or as a Golgari Necrotic combo deck, or as a Mono Green Ooze Midrange deck.
I would be happy to give you an example if you're interested in upgrading your deck, but if you just want to keep it ultra casual, I understand.

Indulgent Aristocrat seems to fit the theme, although I am unsure if I will swap it or not.
Bloodthrone Vampire doesn't provide permanent value for its sacrifice ability, so I will stray away from it.
Genesis Chamber Gives my opponent a wide board, which is a weakness of this deck.
Myr Servitor is interesting, but I can't sacrifice him and bring him back whilst attacking.
Vendetta Seems good for the sideboard
I prefer Bone Splinters to other budget removal, because it allows you to easily get two creature dying procs for abilities. It works when you don't have a dedicated sacrificer.
I'll look into hand disruption.

Mono black deckbuilder's toolbox is my big list of mono black cards to help people put together decks.
If you're looking at budget vamp tribal with cheap enablers, there are other options for sac outlets and tenacious/reassembling. Dregscape Zombie, Call the Bloodline and Zombie Infestation is fairly inexpensive and very repeatable source of tokens and card advantage. Indulgent Aristocrat is amazing when equipped with blade and keeps the love spread across vampires- I'd consider swapping artist for it as you aren't going for the full zulaport package. Bloodthrone Vampire is a good way to force blocks whenever you have a board. To a lesser extent Vampire Cutthroat deserves a look, as its unblockable against many decks and really good at stabilizing with a few blade counters.
The second major cards to look at are cheap hand disruption. The various rats wreck a players hand when they enter play, and a sideboard full of Duress variants destroys some archetypes.

Thank you very much for your valuable suggestions. I need to think seriously about them. The idea with tokens seems cool and worth trying. Also Goblin Welder becomes much better with Genesis Chamber, so I will give them a chance. Probably I will try Caltrops with Sydri, Galvanic Genius and Revel in Riches.
Thank you once for your ideas!

I think you've gone overboard on mana rocks. From what I see, if you just want to deliver command damage, how about more treasure token producers and cards that make cheap artifact tokens. Deadeye Plunderers, Revel in Riches, Ruthless Knave, and Treasure Map Flip would provide the tokens while making another victory condition. Mechanized Production works with those tokens too. Key to the City, Rogue's Passage, Whispersilk Cloak, and Trailblazer's Boots let you hit with Silas and Akiri.

Throne of the God-Pharaoh is really good for full board swings especially in big multiplayer EDH. You also might like Genesis Chamber and Myr Battlesphere to make more 1/1 Myrs fast and have a nice beater later on alongside Thopter Assembly. If your deck lends itself to playing even more artifacts you might wanna check out Thopter Spy Network and Efficient Construction.
Looking at Edric decks for ideas, you might want to try running budget extra turn spells to finish off games with full swings like Temporal Trespass, Part the Waterveil, Karn's Temporal Sundering (needs a legend out), and even Timestream Navigator. Down the line you'd probably want Walk the Aeons.
Lastly, some other mono-blue goodies, Fact or Fiction, Abjure, Deprive, Toothy, Imaginary Friend, Dreamscape Artist, Tomorrow, Azami's Familiar, Imprisoned in the Moon, Monastery Siege, and Mystic Remora.
