Artifact Creature — Assembly-Worker
Whenever you cast a historic spell, you may pay . If you do, create a token that’s a copy of Mishra’s Self-Replicator. (Artifacts, legendaries, and Sagas are historic.)
Mishra's Self-Replicator Discussion

Maybe a little less agressive and more value artifacts? with Ramp like Powerstone Shard and maybe even Manifold Key . Something like Jhoira's Familiar or Artificer's Assistant . Then a funny payoff like Mishra's Self-Replicator or Retributive Wand (with all the untaping). Sage of Lat-Nam for carddraw (and killing your own wand).

ok i will admit my perception of what is CEDH is probably a bit wonky.
here are some other fun cards Ghirapur AEther Grid Mishra's Self-Replicator Metalwork Colossus (actually this is pretty good for you...another draw trigger from the grave) Displacement Wave flexible boardwipe/way to recast a bunch of stuff
also Quicksmith Genius is another looter...
Chromatic Sphere remove renegade map or something for it
hell even bad cards like Implements of Sacrifice could just net you a mana
It feels like to me that the ultimate goal is to cast jhoira turn 3 and try to win in the next 2 turns. but you only have 6 mana rocks so whenever i play tested it felt like a good number of times i just played 4 lands and casted jhoira.

I've been having a lot of fun with him! He's really powerful once he gets going. Mishra's Self-Replicator and Sai, Master Thopterist make him amazing. I think Hostage Taker is a great idea! I could exile an artifact or creature for two mana (as long as Tezzeret, Master of the Bridge is out). I think I'll also put in Tetzimoc, Primal Death for more creature based removal.
That's a good point about One with the Machine . So far, I've cast it for 5 with Gilded Lotus and 4 with Traxos, Scourge of Kroog , and the third time I kept it in my hand because I didn't have a good artifact on the field. I might swap it out for Jace, Ingenious Mind-Mage .
I'm still experimenting with it. Let me know if you decide to build it! I think focusing on creatures, artifacts, and planeswalkers is the way to go because of Tezzeret's affinity.

Just finished remodeling my own Brudiclad deck. My list is here, please check it out if you have time, let me know what you think. I really like your list! It has some great choices that I didn't think of, like Combat Celebrant , Genesis Chamber and Oketra's Monument . I am thinking of further balance changes and have been adding cards to my maybeboard to boot. Some cards that I would heavily recommend because they have such amazing utility are:
Trading Post :The versatility on this card is amazing. Recurring artifacts, making goats, discarding cards into the grave when needed and the fact that you can do it all at instant speed to keep your options open has made me really fall in love with this card.
Mishra's Self-Replicator :This thing sets up a huge board of tokens by itself. It is a little costly to start, but it gets very threatening fairly fast.
God-Pharaoh's Gift / Back from the Brink :Lastly, these two are certainly meant for long games, but they are amazing options for attrition wars or that option that can get you to a game-winning play out of nowhere.

This deck is going to be dead in the water until it can get its Aetherflux Resovoir up. I recommend Whir of Invention, Gamble, Fabricate, Reshape, Planar Portal, Inventors' Fair, or Hoarding Dragon so you can find that your reservoir ASAP.
Speaking of lands, add a Reliquary Tower if you really want that Psychosis Crawler to get ugly.
Lotus Petal is an auto-include that you'd never hate to draw with this deck.
You'd also want some alternative win cons and do dumb things with your artifacts if your reservoir gets exiled, so let's do some crazy shit. Let's make everything artifacts with Mycosynth Lattice, make them indestructible with Darksteel Forge, then nuke everyone else's stuff with Nevinyrral's Disk, and make lots and lots of indestructible ugly beasts with Karn, Scion of Urza. You've got Mishra's Self-Replicator in there which can be fun if you can afford to keep paying for tokens. You know what works great with that? Mana Echoes.
Aetherflux Reservoir is an awesome card but with the right deck you can have a lot of fun even if you don't draw it.

You should run something like Chromatic Lantern and Chamber Sentry. This way, you have a chump blocker (If you want it) that can be brought back to your hand from the graveyard to activate all the historic abilities some more. I suggest this because, yea sure you have a lot of Historic Spells, but what happens when you start top-decking? Scry will only get you so far, and when you activate Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle it returns but doesn't cast it so if you draw a land (after filtering) you have a dead turn where you do nothing. Also, another thing to remember is that creating the copies of Mishra's Self-Replicator does not count as casting it which again, if you have a dead turn... That Paperclip Maximizer slows down for a turn.
Anywho, hope this was insightful and expands your thinking! I like the deck! :D

OK, lets do this then! We have to get through a lot:
1/ The strategy is artifacts - Our creatures will be artifacts, benefit from artifacts or create artifacts. Our non-artifact related spells will be counterspells and removal that protect the artifact plan.
2/ Standard rotation - standard is rotating in 2 weeks, kicking out Amonkhet and Kaladesh and ushering in Guilds of Ravnica. I will not include any cards from those sets, so only Ixalan, Dominaria and M19 cards will be used.
3/ The deck:
4 The Antiquities War - main win con!
3 Sai, Master Thopterist - makes a lot of tokens!
3 Sailor of Means - a token, plus a defensive creature!
4 Skyscanner - artifact and replaces itself!
3 Treasure Map Flip - is an artifact that smooths out draws and makes more tokens!
2 Mishra's Self-Replicator - a separate win condition that multiplies itself!
2 Daring Archaeologist - gives us back an artifact and gets big quick!
Add 23 lands with as many lands that produce both your colors as possible.
I think this can be a solid deck for playing with friends, with a good mix of interaction, threats and powerful win conditions.

Regarding Retrofitter Foundry I have found that while it lacks in sheer power, it's not a card to underestimate. It has a mana cost of 1 colorless to turn your incidental thopter and mass tokens into 4/4s which is by far more efficient than anything else in the deck between a payoff and a copy effect. Simply on mana and cards, it's only 1 mana and 1 card for mass 4/4s that can deal heavy damage or eliminate a player right then compared to about 8-10 mana for combo off or huge payoff. That's pretty solid and efficient. Another point is that it is a fantastic mana sink with a low cost of 2 mana to make a dude a turn or spare 7 mana to make two. I've had Powerstone Shard copied off and had a ton of mana to just sink into it when it was on the board, making 10-15 guys the first turn, then they turn into Shards, then I make 80, etc.
Granted, my current build is more geared to miscellaneous artifacts, but Mishra's Self-Replicator deserves a special mention. I don't know if you've already considered this card or not, but it's a very good mana sink and token generator for the deck. With enough artifact and legendary hits, one can do a lot worse than paying 1 mana for a 2/2 a bunch of times.
