LeoSushi - thanks for the input. I really like Treasure Keeper and Throne of Geth , they seem like a solid options. I looked at Marionette Master when I was putting it together but I didn't like the high CMC and BB in the mana cost. I ended up going with Noxious Gearhulk instead, but I can try out Marionette Master and see which I like better.
Carrion/Viscera/Bombardment are all good sac outlets, but don't really fit the flavor I am after with the deck. Same is true with the graft creatures. I'm positive they would be good additions to a normal Marchesa/counter build, but I want to keep it artifact/affinity flavored, even if the deck is a little worse for it.
Thanks again for the feedback, I appreciate the help :)

I've been honing a marchesa deck for about a year, and the best cards I can suggest are the graft creatures you can run. Vigean Graftmage , Cytoplast Manipulator , and Novijen Sages are the best 3 (They keep counters on important things, and protect your commander). In the modular build specifically, some fantastic cards to consider are Treasure Keeper , Marionette Master , and Throne of Geth . I'd also highly suggest running some low-cost sac outlets to make sure nothing goes to waste Carrion Feeder , Viscera Seer , Goblin Bombardment , and Slobad, Goblin Tinkerer are the best ones lowest on the curve.

TheShadowNite: Great to hear you're getting into edh! For some budget upgrades, I would suggest Scaretiller , Marionette Master , Cultivator's Caravan , Untethered Express , Pain Seer , Hollowsage , Fleetwheel Cruiser , Bomat Bazaar Barge , Dusk Legion Dreadnought , Demolition Stomper , and Syndicate Trafficker ! Good luck and have fun!

I just looked up the ruling while writing this comment Marionette Master 's ability checks on resolution so you would deal 8 and the second trigger would deal 0. With having to use Refurbish to reanimate God-Pharoah's Gift it is doubtful that you will draw another. Especially considering that you are on the self mill plan. Some sac outlets that I think are much better are Cartel Aristocrat Blood Bairn Butcher of the Horde

Hey, I've been checking out your deck to find cards that would work well in my own brew and I have a couple suggestions for cards to possibly remove - Glissa, the Traitor is way too cute for a deck built around sacrificing your own things, and although you may eventually end up with one or two artifacts in the graveyard, it's just usually a pretty dead card. Goblin Cratermaker is also way too cute, just run Thrashing Brontodon instead. Marionette Master is too finicky for this deck, seeing as you run only 16 artifacts and most of them have low cmc and you don't want to sack many of them. I understand you create a lot of artifact tokens, but Marionette Master is really not the best way you could be taking advantage of sacrificing your artifacts. There are other cards I would take out, such as World Shaper and Rapacious Dragon , but for the sake of brevity, I'll keep this list short. I like the way you're going with this deck, and I think after some tweaking, it could be pretty good.

I hate to ruin the party, but Skullclamp doesn't work for this deck. It seems as though it would, but it took me one game with it in my shirei to notice that since skullclamp boosts the creature's power, it actually counteracts shirei's trigger. Sad, but true. I excluded Caged sun and Mikeus the unhollowed for the same reason. This deck seems preety similar to mine. You should consider Marionette Master , A shirei powerhouse that can easily win you the game with the right timing. My expiriance with it in my version is quite positive. Also, Soldevi Adnate is criminaly underplayed and works nicely with shirei.

I dont know your meta, so might be a non-issue, put play tested your deck a couple of time. The turn you normal start to be able to really impact the board (defend yourself, attack etc) is turn 5 or 6. That is a bit late if your opponents are doing stuff those turns.
Your decks starts going after that but is still not doing anything insane. To really get things started you need to get to +t10
Id try lower your curve a bit. Replace some of these cards (not all) with things that ramp or have some impact early game. Reiver Demon , Lord of the Void , Exsanguinate , Army of the Damned , Dread Cacodemon , Demolition Stomper , Marionette Master , Gray Merchant of Asphodel , Spine of Ish Sah , Scour from Existence , Silverskin Armor , Revel in Riches , Demolition Stomper , Glaring Spotlight .
Some suggestion that gives you some early game plays Mind Stone , Palladium Myr , Voltaic Servant , Foundry Inspector , Vampire Nighthawk (people hate attacking in to that) Plague Myr , Filigree Familiar or really whatever mana stones you have at hand.
