I'm not sure what your goal for this deck is. Knowing what you want the deck to do and how you want to win is key for suggestions.

5 color mana bases are harder so color fixing may be more important Command Tower Unknown Shores and Manalith. But with your artifact theme you may not be concerned with colors.

Like I said I'm not sure your goal but some cards caught my eye and I would remove Universal Solvent Jinxed Idol Jinxed Choker and your changelings. I think there are much better options for all these cards available.

Ooh maybe add Jinxed Choker too, although opponents could just all agree to give them back to you.

Jinxed Choker is a fun one too.

Kumano, Master Yamabushi, Obsidian Fireheart, Shivan Hellkite,Jinxed Choker Comet Storm, Ravaging Blaze, and Volcanic Geyser could enable wins off of Braids of Fire. With a few more things to do with mana at instant speed, braids could be savage.

Planeswalker's Fury could also be good

You know, you like people, and people like cards. Why not use Dictate of Kruphix and Fevered Visions to give them all the cards they could ever need. Also, I know it's a little rude, but Jinxed Choker can get bad fast in a dragged out group game, which is what commander is 9 out of 10 times.

I can't say what is right or wrong to cut because we all have our own play styles, but these are the changes I would make:

-1 Dissipation Field

+1 No Mercy or Dread

-1 Domineering Will

+1 Mystifying Maze or Maze of Ith

-1 Soul Conduit

+1 Tree of Perdition or Grand Melee

-1 Leyline of Anticipation (This card draws a lot of attention)

+1 Grand Melee or Fumiko the Lowblood

These changes are strictly my opinion and aren't right or wrong. I feel like Exsanguinate to gain life could be pretty awesome. Card choice is extremely important for politics. I love playing Phyrexian Gargantua in my deck. My friend plays Consecrated Sphinx and rarely if ever draws more cards than I do, not to mention all the attacks I get in with the Gargantua.

Some important plays to keep an eye on happen during your first 3-4 turns of the game. Always let your opponents know you aren't playing combo, immediately this will let them know to target someone else. Next we'll need some more mana rocks for your high CMC items like Cruel Entertainment and Kaervek the Merciless. I would start with Sol Ring, Rakdos Signet, Dimir Signet, Izzet Signet, and Talisman of Dominance, Talisman of Indulgence, and perhaps something like Coalition Relic.

These will also help with your land count being on the lower side (for my preference anyway).

Grenzo, Havoc Raiser and Jinxed Choker are fun cards too. Once the choker is being passed around you can easily defend yourself by saying something along the lines of "I didn't pass it to you, that was bob!" if someone is getting upset haha.

joshuaizac on List of Interesting cards some may have forgotten

Absolutely LOVE the list you've got going on here!!! This is pretty much the types of cards i try to include at least 1-4 of in every (commander) deck i build....sadly i have less than a dozen of the cards you've listed in my current 8 decks, even though i've probably owned or played with 60% of them.

I primarily play casual commander and have for the last yr and a half, though i've played a lot of different variants on and off since i 1st started back in the era of Legends. As an on again off again player idk what's been spotlighted and what's slipped under the radar on various years as i wasn't paying attention to the radar.

I do have a few that aren't listed here, though with a broken radar idk if they qualify for this list but anyways;

Jinxed Choker - Telepathy - Ageless Entity - Kaboom! - Spiraling Embers - Jushi Apprentice - Ebony Owl Netsuke - Otherworld Atlas - Consuming Vapors - Creeping Renaissance - Gate to the AEther - Wild Evocation - Hunting Grounds - Root Greevil - Pulse of the Tangle - Avenging Druid - Mindshrieker - Gnaw to the Bone - Read the Runes - Trade Routes - and one of my favorite pieces of jank Temporal Aperture !!

I'm sure a few of these won't make the list, and i imagine a few might...and i apologize for the lil' wall o' text.
