If you put in cards like Gonti's Aether Heart to set up insane energy engines, on top of Greenbelt rampager combos.

First off Argy has covered the control angle pretty well although I will suggest a couple cards. Dynavolt Tower could be a reasonable alternate win condition and Sweltering Suns is probably the best thing to do with the the turn you play Jaya Ballard. Reduce / Rubble is interesting as on it's own it's a passable counter spell but also a sweat thing to do with the maybe to keep you opponent off a color or prevent them using all their mana to do something scary. Plus you can discard it for value. The First Eruption might be useful in getting a Jaya Ballard out early and getting the devotion necessary to cast her while cleaning up X/1s and incentivizing your opponent to not play creatures that die to the third ability until after it has gone off.

If you are trying wizard tribal I've seen people go one of two ways: spell-slinging aggro with Adeliz, the Cinder Wind and all the best aggressively costed wizards, i.e. Ghitu Lavarunner and Soul-Scar Mage etc., or a mid-range value based strat focused on Naban, Dean of Iteration and Champion of Wits. Jaya doesn't work at all with the former and probably wouldn't with the latter either however there may be an argument for using her to reach enough mana to go infinite with Naru Meha, Master Wizard (if I remember I'll ctrlC-ctrlV some in another comment*).

If you want some more ideas of how you could break Jaya I've wanted to build a Naya 'all about the graveyard' deck with all the random eternalize and aftermath jank for a while now. It is possible to embalm an Honored Hydra and swing for lethal with Onward / Victory and the triple rummage +1 might just be enough to get it there. I'm not saying it would be good but at least it's original.

What Jaya makes me excited about however is Indomitable Creativity. The aim of the deck usually is to make a lot of creatures or artifacts without using artifact or creature spells (like with Sram's Expertise or Huatli, Warrior Poet) and then use Indomitable Creativity to tutor out three creatures or artifacts that let you combo off and win immediately (the only three in the deck) such as Whirler Virtuoso, Gonti's Aether Heart and Panharmonicon or Forerunner of the Empire, Polyraptor and Regisaur Alpha or just hit multiple Herald of Anguish and make your opponent discard their hand. The deck has to run practically only instant and sorceries so jaya's first and last abilities just slot right in. And the triple red in her casting cost also isn't that bad as you are trying to set that up for Indomitable Creativity anyway. Plus jaya means that you can potentially pump much larger quantities into the value of X and therefore can afford to maybe run a couple of non-combopiece artifact or creature spells.

Great deck, I had one very similar and was fun but lacked more finishers other than thopters and Skysovereign. Maybe consider adding Inspiring Statuary to help reduce non artifact spells costs. Also another piece for the infinite thopter combo could be Gonti's Aether Heart giving a replacement piece in case one of them is destroyed. Because the artifact count is kinda low I added Scrap Trawler for artifact recycling so the combo if destroyed can be retrieved. Walking Ballista for another finisher adding a TON of mana with Storm the Vault flipped worked for me too.

These are just ideas and cards I've tested myself. Maybe some can help you :)

Keep up the good brews!

Nice build! i love mono red artifacts! i have a build with daretti. I'm not sure what to suggest here. Have you considered Gonti's Aether Heart taking extra turns in mono red is always fun. I also like setting up Final Fortune+Isochron Scepter+Sundial of the Infinite

Playing Block Commander sure is restrictive. Are you going to play against equally rerstricted decks?

Still there are some cards you are misssing out that may prove useful for your deck:
Scrap Trawler Nice artifact recursion.
Ghirapur Orrery A totally legit commander card, specially for a Boros deck.
Gonti's Aether Heart You are not playing energy, but you have a ton of artifacts, that is a flashy card you can add.
