Artifact Creature — Myr
When Myr Retriever is put into the graveyard from the battlefield, return another target artifact card from your graveyard to your hand.

I love shirei and this is a very tight interpretation.
Marionette Master is one of those cards that are alright in this type of deck, with 1 damage for every ARTIFACT creature. And while she makes servos I think there are some better alternatives, Reaper from the Abyss is larger and can destroy things for the same CMC.

Also OG Ugin/Karn are definitely add-ins here, they are far more powerful than the newer ones.
If you keep your spells or CMC low to the ground you could do a colorless storm build using Aetherflux Reservoir .
Also I'm a huge fan of Chaos Wand + Engine + Rocks to cast all of everyone's stuff! (serves two purposes, fun and to get rid of those cards so they can't be used against you!).
Not sure why Sculpting Steel isn't already here.
Staff of Domination is a little pricey but... definitely a utility here!
Wurmcoil Engine for SURE belongs in the deck.
Mind's Eye for sure belongs here for some draw power!
Lastly Voltaic Key combos with a lot of stuff in artifacts.
Also I'm much more inclined to encourage the artifact route with some Eldrazi titan's at the top end, than a weird mix like you have now. My artifact deck, Daretti, runs one Ulamog, Ceaseless Hunger as just a top end as it generates a lot of mana naturally... Also gotta love that two Scour From Existences for 4 mana less...

What about some number of Myr Retriever 's? Borrowing it from KCI 2.0.
It seems like it could fit well into our deck as a win condition with Grinding Station + Semblance Anvil (or Cloud Key ) and its a easier to assemble than our primary combo. Plus people would assume more than they do now that we are KCI 2.0
can pick any artifact out of our graveyard, I'm thinking if a combo piece gets destroyed or we want to restart our eggs engine
has good synergy with Grinding Station as a win condition; and other cards in our deck
is easier to assemble than our primary combo
distracts OPP from our other win conditions
reduces eggs combo consistency
everyone still knows Semblance Anvil is a key piece

Continuing my advice...
Good budget cards ($3 or less each) with artifact strategies to consider adding:
- Sai, Master Thopterist
- Padeem, Consul of Innovation
- Unwinding Clock
- Shimmer Myr
- The Antiquities War
- Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage
- Hanna, Ship's Navigator
- Foundry Inspector
- Sphinx Summoner
- Thopter Spy Network
- Treasure Mage
- Scrap Trawler
- Myr Retriever
- Thirst for Knowledge
- One with the Machine
- Stoic Rebuttal
- Open the Vaults
Can add all these cards for about $20. Can add all cards suggested in both comments for about $45.
Cards to consider cutting:
- Cataclysmic Gearhulk
- Glassdust Hulk
- Tezzeret's Betrayal
- Salvaging Station
- Treasury Thrull
- Tezzeret, Master of Metal
- Spinal Embrace
- Enigma Sphinx
- Obelisk of Esper
- Seer's Lantern
- Star Compass
- Arsenal Thresher
- Jhoira's Familiar
- Synod Centurion
- Tower Gargoyle
- Death Grasp
The majority of these suggested cuts are five/six/seven drops. Cutting these can reduce the avg. CMC or your deck a lot resulting in smoother game play. If you like some of these suggestions I offer more advice. Good luck with your deck.

@Austin_Smith_of_Cards I guess you're right about Ral. I figured he'd be decent card draw with his first ability and putting things in the graveyard wasn't terrible because I do have several pieces of recursion but I hadn't really thought about how bad his other 2 abilities really are. Until now having it written out in front of me I hadn't really counted how many instants and sorcery cards I had.
I had been looking at Magnifying Glass as well. I figured it was one of my weaker options but I liked that it also made clues (which helps up my artifact count) and those clues added to my card draw. So, I kind of looked at it as pulling double duty.
Do you really think Mycosynth Wellspring isn't worth it? I guess I don't have a ton of ways to sacrifice it but I feel like it's a good when using Trash for Treasure , Scrap Mastery , Goblin Welder , Kuldotha Forgemaster , and Daretti, Scrap Savant . It also is good to bring back with Myr Retriever , Junk Diver , and Scrap Trawler . Is it just that this isn't enough options, or are these just too narrow of circumstances?
What are your opinions of Vedalken Orrery ? I know giving my spells flash is good, but is it worth it in this deck? I always want to use it but I feel like it's always one of the last cuts I make in most decks, but I was hoping it'd have more value in an artifacts matters deck.
