You would hate playing with me :) This is basically a list of auto includes for their color schemes ;)
Ashnod's Altar not only is a free sac outlet but also generates mana.

Some tweaking, was playtesting 1v1 (will do multiplay tomorrow) and while the deck certainly performs close to how it was expected, it still takes too long to kill the opponent with Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir as the biggest creature in the deck.
Cut Eternal Dominion for Bribery. Without any copy effects Epic is too much of a drawback to be worth attempting and adding copy effects would require changing the nature of the deck so its out for a card with basically the same effect at half the mana.
Thran Dynamo out Leyline of Anticipation in. Cutting down to 3, 6+ mana cards (one of them which would destroy the Dynamo) makes dynamo relatively useless when taking the rest of the ramp into consideration. Leyline is just solid utility in any control style deck.
Mold Adder out Draining Whelk in. While its a huge increase in mana spent, this is basically adding another win condition to the deck. Mold Adder isn't bad but without evasion its not all that great either.
Plagiarize out Treachery in. While Plagiarize is potentially very powerful there are many situations especially if you end up in top-deck mode where it is '4 mand draw a card', there are few situations where Treachery simply isn't the best control magic spell.
Clone out Phyrexian Metamorph in. Better card. Devastation Tide out Cyclonic Rift in. Better effect. I'll probably try to fit tide back in in the future but for now I'll settle for swapping it for a better version.
Addendum: I'm toying around with adding Empress Galina but so far it seems like she'd be too slow compared to relying on clone/control magic effects.

As an intermediary you could turn something into an artifact with Liquimetal Coating, then copy it with Phyrexian Metamorph. The Metamorph will always be an artifact, so you can enchant it with Mechanized Production safely.

I would say go for old school Phyrexian cards. Phyrexian Dreadnought is iconic af. Phyrexian Revoker is actually qite useful. Phyrexian Negator, if only for the flavor text. Phyrexian Metamorph is super cool.

Life's Finale, Phyrexian Rebirth, and Black Sun's Zenith are all good board wipes, the first one especially if you intend to run reanimation effects (like Reanimate or Phyrexian Delver, two other flavor cards). Engineered Plague is good if tribal is big in your meta, and Reprocess isn't bad either. Less played options that can be okay are Phyrexian Infiltrator and Phyrexian Etchings. Phyrexian Metamorph is an all-around good card. Phyrexian Totem is, frankly, a bad mana rock, but hey, it's Phyrexian. Torpor Orb is also Phyrexian, but I would not add it if it hoses you. Soul of New Phyrexia is pretty good in EDH.

Hey, so I thought a little about the deck. Instead of efficient combos let's stick to the sillier ones, focusing on intruder alarm.
You are in very bad colors for tapping dorks, and the stonybrook/drowner combo is only tutorable by black. I'd suggest more artifact and instant focused combos that still require several pieces to set up, and are pretty cheesy.
To Arms! to draw your deck
Intruder Alarm with token generation, such as
Warping Wail for infinite scions/mana (and some other useful modes)
A very fun combo sometimes used in Cedh is to have an Isochron Scepter imprinted with Dramatic Reversal, then playing a Copy Artifact imprinting a Swan Song, then playing some spell and infinitely countering it with swan song while it's on the stack to generate infinite 2/2 birds. Phyrexian Metamorph is a backup copier.
It looks like you are intentionally avoiding them, but I'd still look into the cheaper artifact and spell tutors to help assemble your combos easier. You are playing a tutor in the command zone, after all.
Regardless of the combos you choose to use, I'd include some cheap interaction and card advantage like the above comment suggests. The land count is also very high, I would cut down to 33 max. You can use some cheaper artifacts. Without mentioning the broken ones, you could stand to add Talisman of Progress, Talisman of Dominance, and Fellwar Stone. The 3cmc ones are typically pretty bad, but you could add Coalition Relic.
Hope that helps, good luck!

Hello Shane.Allen, I'm sorry it's taken some time to get back to you, I've been away for a couple of weeks. I agree with Polybius that some more "tax" like cards could be good. Maybe Laboratory Maniac as another wincon with Enter the Infinite? The problem with making card suggestions with a deck like this with low synergy and more Mono U good stuff is that there is ton of ways to build it and for it to still be good. I think it will mainly come down to preference for you. Here are some cards to consider if you havnt already, and mind you I don't have suggestions of what to take out for them since it's just good stuff for good stuff.
Sphinx of the Final Word (I'm making the assumption that you are playing Teferi is because there is a decent amount of control in your group and Teferi is very very good against them, as is this card)
Mind Over Matter is another combo you could add with Azami in your deck to draw your deck
Hope this give you more to brew with!
