I completely agree about Brainstorm - I actually cut it from the mainboard and it's just sat in the maybeboard for draw but there's better options out there.
Cranial Plating and Paradox Engine are definitely good ideas. I actually had the Paradox Engine in the deck until I ended up removing some of the rocks. Which also leads on to your last point; how many rocks does the deck need? I honestly am not sure yet but I really like the idea of the synergy with Ghirapur AEther Grid you mentioned so perhaps I need to have a bit of a juggle to fit some more rocks in and throw in the Engine....
Thanks, watch this space for some possible changes!

Lantern is what I like to call a meta deck.. In that it'll always be relevant unless the meta is inundated with artifact hate. My particular LGS is Boros Burn heavy and Eldrazi (all variants) heavy, but I know this deck can handle its own at almost every establishment.. You just have to be able to deal with the salt from other players.
My sideboard choices:
2x Ghirapur AEther Grid - This is a common component in classic Lantern decks as an alt wincon
1x Grafdigger's Cage - For decks that rely upon reanimation or playing cards out of their graveyards
2x Pithing Needle - This is a mainboard card in just about every other Lantern deck, it's very useful for shutting down trouble cards like planeswalkers
2x Surgical Extraction - For trading in to kill off known combo decks
1x Thoughtseize - For trading in and out hand disruption cards
2x Welding Jar - For decks that have a lot of artifact hate
4x Whir of Invention - Trade this in to convert this deck to the Whir version of Lantern.. Trade out all of the extra blue cards in the mainboard for these four.

This looks like a great budget contender for people that want to get into edh but have mostly standard cards--such as my SO, for whom I'll be building a deck. Something that piqued my interest for this deck was Ghirapur AEther Grid -- tap your clues to deal damage to your enrage dinos?

On the Budget affinity I will add Cranial Plating to 4 and Ghirapur AEther Grid seems like a nice addition to the sidedeck. I did consider Blinkmoth Nexus but it is still a bit too much for my low budget since a play set of those ($20) is over half my entire budget for a deck. Tempered Steel also seems like a very neet adition. I had seen it but wasn't sure about it. I will try running 2 of them (my budget limits me here again) and if it does works I will try saving up a little bit for a playset.
Regarding everything else. I gotta say this hurt me hard u.u . Although the Infect deck might be dead due to Fatal Push, I have to say am still a sucker for it and it is really fun when am killing my friends on turn 2 and there faces seen simpy confused.
Path to Exile is a staple which I love but can't afford. Am looking for other options like Oust, Condemn, Sunlance, Reciprocate, Gaze of Justice or even Swords to Plowshares. Icatian Javelineers is a card which I saw in some Soldier decks but might be better just going for Thraben Inspector as a solid 1 drop.
Finally on the Pseudoaristocrats deck I moved up the number of drainers and am trying to make it more of a 2/4 balance than 3 of each. Am still figuring out how to make it work out but am sure I am on track. It is a shame Fatal Push is so expensive or I will be running 4 as a no brainer.
