Thanks a lot!
Tyrant's Familiar taps, unfortunately, and if I give vigilance to anything, that would be Kaldra.
Mycosynth Lattice is very good, but my meta will possibly gain more advantage of it than me (Breya and the like are common).
I will definetely consider Mirrorworks, that might work.

In all seriousness, i can't think of anything to help with the goal of the deck. All i was about to suggest is already in there (like Panharmonicon).
BUT! I can suggest some cards in red that can help otherwise.
Tyrant's Familiar for a good creature with multiple attack phases.
Mycosynth Lattice to go with Hellkite Tyrant and Vandalblast- steal or destroy ALL the permanents!
Mirrorworks to double every possible non-legendary artifact.
Daretti, Scrap Savant is good in a mono-red artifact deck. It cycles your hand, reuses any artifact in the graveyard and if you ever emblem, unless they exile your artifacts, they'll always be there.
O-Naginata is a fantastic, low cost equipment that can help Godo or Kaldra!

My first advice would be that your artifact count is simply too low to reliably hit Metalcraft. I would add the artifact lands (Darksteel Citadel, Ancient Den, and Great Furnace) and more strong, cheap equipment (like O-Naginata, Tenza, Godo's Maul, Sword of the Animist, Inquisitor's Flail, Fireshrieker, etc).
I've never liked Hero's Blade much, since its equip cost is so prohibitively high unless you attach it to a legendary creature.
Mirran Crusader seems both on-theme and powerful. Bastion Protector can protect your commander pretty easily. Silverblade Paladin and Duelist's Heritage give that most-sought-after keyword, double strike. Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder and Akiri, Line-Slinger both seem really good here.
I didn't have much time to really make an in-depth analysis at the moment, so I'll take a little more time to look it over later, but you definitely get my +1 ;)

KeelHaul10: Honestly? I've just found that it's somewhat irrelevant. My deck's built to work around the sweeper (lots of protection and expendable creatures) so it never harms me too much TBH.
Also, I'd prefer Rune-Tail's Essence :)
...seriously, though, why do people keep telling me to remove O-Naginata? It's simply one of the best cards in this deck, and allows many of the most explosive wins (simply because of its absurdly low mana:effect ratio). I'd cut Umezawa's Jitte or Sunforger before I'd cut O-Naginata haha.

Snacrifice: Thanks for the comment!
I used to play Hero's Blade, but I found that the problem was the prohibitively high equip cost. I know it auto-equips to Avacyn, but if I don't already have it down when Avacyn enters it's just terrible (6 mana for a mere 3/2 boost). It was just too inconsistent, and I cut it because I needed the slots.
O-Naginata has proven itself to be one of the strongest cards in the deck, to be honest. I agree that there are objectively stronger equipment (like Loxodon Warhammer) but the thing that elevates O-Naginata is its ridiculously low cast and equip cost.
Masterwork of Ingenuity is something I also used to play, but it got cut when I realized there were actually very few equipment I wanted to copy (since many of the good ones grant keywords, or are legendary, or are redundant in multiples). I just got sick of drawing it without any good targets so I cut it - consistency is king. Still, though, I'll reconsider adding it, thanks!
I've never tried Semblance Anvil here, but I'm worried it's too vulnerable to removal. While I loved it in a Standard Myr deck back in the day, in EDH it's far too easy to get 2-for-1'd if it's removed, leaving it as serious card disadvantage. Also, I don't have enough of any one permanent to make it worth it IMO.
Prototype Portal is an awesome card, I just don't want to spend 8 mana for my first copy of an equipment that's already in my hand. It also has the same problem as Semblance Anvil in that removal leaves me with serious card disadvantage.
Thanks for your comment! I appreciate your help a lot :) Also, you said on the "Advertise your deck" page that you'd +1'd the deck, but I think the website didn't register it - mind clicking it again? :)

I'm surprised you don't have Hero's Blade since it equips for free and makes Avacyn just a bit bigger-a 9/7 once flipped for free once played is neat, and you have a bunch of legendaries for it to equip to as well(I'd sub out O-Naginata TBH- you lose the trample, but Avacyn already has evasion.
Masterwork of Ingenuity, Semblance Anvil, and Prototype Portal would be really good too, since they'd let you double up(or in Prototype portal's case, as many as you can get out) on whatever equips you really liked. Skyblinder Staff is a bit doofy but is surprisingly good evasion for a flying commander, especially one with damage.

I'm going to go through it by card types & make suggestions based on what I see missing or might be beneficial.
Boros Signet & Lightning Greaves are a must for this deck. You might consider Stormrider Rig since you've got Hero's Blade. There'should also O-Naginata & Umezawa's Jitte, the Swords of X&Y, Hedron Matrix, Grafted Exoskeleton, etc. As for making things cheaper, Semblance Anvil could be hilarious.
Sram, Senior Edificer might be worth running (in the same vein, Sigarda's Aid exists). You might consider Goblin Rabblemaster or Kemba, Kha Regent for sheer numbers. Boros Battleshaper is hilarious. Kor Cartographer, Knight of the White Orchid & Oreskos Explorer all ramp for pretty cheap.
Wrath of God, Day of Judgment, Blasphemous Act, Indomitable Creativity, Fumigate; sweepers are important & with so many options, there's no reason not to run at least two. Open the Vaults is something I actually expected. If you do go with it, you might consider running things like Renegade Map or Wayfarer's Bauble.
