Cards Missing From Initial Build

Goblin Welder Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain Thopter Engineer Thopter Squadron Blade of Selves Coldsteel Heart Commander's Sphere Retrofitter Foundry Vedalken Orrery Treasure Map  Flip Fire Diamond Sky Diamond Thirst for Knowledge Gamble

Ideas

More Removal/Wipes Blasphemous Act - Staple Release the Gremlins - Gives more tokens Rapid Hybridization, Pongify - Staples and can give yourself a 3/3 token Meteor Golem - High CMC, but can destroy Enchantments which is a huge weakness of the deck.

Master Transmuter - Cheats out your big artifacts, but kind expensive.

Curse of Opulence - A weird staple for this deck, but I think you can figure out why.

Pirate's Pillage/Pirate's Prize - Draw and tokens, maybe

Thoughts

Think about how fast you can make tokens. Does it make Purphoros, God of the Forge worth it?

Check through what effects require set up and make sure you don't have too many compared to stand alone cards. Even though Krark-Clan Ironworks does ramp, I wouldn't count it as ramp because it requires set up. Same goes for Storm the Vault  Flip (But you have 36 actual lands which is totally fine)

Your curving out around 4, so 2 drop ramp spells are much more important than the other higher ramp spells. Iron Myr, Fire Diamond, Sky Diamond, Silver Myr, Coldsteel Heart fit the best imo.

Gamble, Mystical Tutor, Fabricate, maybe Hoarding Dragon (?) - Combos in decks are strong and fun, but really hard to pull of without a descent amount of tutors and/or redundancy. Ignoring combos, each tutor can search out a key cards.

Final Fortune - Speaking of combos. Great combo with Isochron Scepter and Sundial of the Infinite, but you should either cut this or add more tutors to make getting it a bit more consistent.

Dramatic Reversal - I don't think you have enough mana rock/dorks to get to infinite mana, and without that it's kind of a waste of a card.

These combos in general don't really synergize with the goal of the deck (infinite mana more than infinite turns) like an infinite token combo would. I think there is a combo with Scrap Trawler and Hangarback Walker that I vaguely remember that you might want to try to find.

Darksteel Colossus/Blightsteel Colossus are super strong, but don't really fit. If you can find more targets for Mimic Vat and Prototype Portal then maybe, but those 4 cards stick out.

Cuts (IMO)

Everflowing Chalice - I always go colored mana over colorless if it costs the same, even if artifacts don't need it. It has potential to ramp you a bit more late game, but you usually don't need the ramp at that point.

Inspired Sphinx - 6 mana for a draw 3, maybe 4, and a hefty costed mana sink doesn't seem worth it to me.

Mycosynth Lattice - I might be missing something, but it seems a little narrow sited. It works a little with Darksteel Forge and Combos well with Hellkite Tyrant, but if the deck makes a bunch of tokens you don't need it to win with the Hellkite.

Panharmonicon - Same as Mycosynth Lattice. I might be missing something but there isn't a lot of ETBs to abuse this. I'm only counting 1 card that works: Thopter Spy Network

Lands

Cut Phyrexia's Core -Negligible effect unless you have a consistent way to abuse LTB triggers.

Caldera Lake - There are far better lands.

Swiftwater Cliffs - Its fine if you want to stay budget.

Reliquary Tower - I don't see a way for you to draw a bunch of cards and overflow your hand, so this isn't really needed.

Add City of Brass Reflecting Pool Mana Confluence - All staples in multicolored decks. Spire of Industry too for artifact decks, but is super cheap.

Izzet Guildgate and Highland Lake - Better, and cheaper, than Caldera Lake if you want to stay budget

Scalding Tarn - Obvious include if you want to spend the money.

Evolving Wilds/Terramorphic Expanse - Color fixing

Myriad Landscape is a 2 land fetch and taps for mana.

Overall, good base. It has potential to go from 0 - 100 and kill everyone out of nowhere.

Interesting list. Regarding the draw issue: how about some copies of Costly Plunder or Pirate's Prize?

Cereal_Killer on STOP! Counter time.

Why Omniscience? I mean, it's a great card, but do you really need it? Aren't better some Lightning Bolt?

In the deescription you said you wanted to stay budget, so good (and cheap) counters that could fit well and maybe could replace Negate, Syncopate and Cancel are Mana Leak, Logic Knot or Counterflux

Some good cards with which you can burn your opponents are: Lava Spike, Shard Volley, Skullcrack, Searing Blaze, Magma Jet

I don't really uderstand why Nexus of Fate is there. It does nothing in your deck

I also don't really like Niv-Mizzet, Parun. I'd prefere some Monastery Swiftspear or even some Spark Elemental or Hellspark Elemental

Another card I don't really like is Pirate's Prize. It costs 4 mana and lets you draw 2 cards. Add some more Opt or Serum Visions if you really want an effect like that. They also let you scry and they cost just 1 mana

Hmmm. Cover of Darkness and Mana Drain seem good! Beyond that, more artifacts never hurt...maybe Curse of Opulence? You also don't seem to have many draw effects, so that might be a good place to start (Pirate's Pillage and Pirate's Prize?).

If I may make a suggestion, ease off the treasure production spells in exchange for spells that produce the same board state effect for less mana. Though they make you a treasure or 2, they slow the deck down considerably. Contract Killing for instance is terribly in effective at eliminating a threat compared to 2 more Fatal Push or Doomfall. Pirate's Prize & Spell Swindle work well, but Depths of Desire doesn't fit at all in a control deck, if tempo was a goal I would suggest Unsummon instead but here its taking up space for better cards. Inspiring Statuary is interesting, but wasn't consistent enough to rely on.

Consider: -Syncopate over Depths of Desire

-Doomfall over Contract Killing

-Renegade Map or Tezzeret the Schemer over Inspiring Statuary

-Zahid, Djinn of the Lamp instead of Blink of an Eye in the side board

Saheeli's Artistry is a cool card you could consider. You'll need a lot of manna but making infinite copies of any creature or artifact should win you the game. Pirate's Prize and Hornswoggle also seem reasonable for that reason.

There is an angle to this combo you mightn't have seen. With a Naban, Dean of Iteration or Panharmonicon you can use the extra Naru triggers to copy some other spell on the stack other than the flicker effect. You'll need even more manna on the same turn but if you don't have another etb creature you can psuedo River's Rebuke there board with a Expel from Orazca or something. Subsequently, Running Compelling Argument or Opt could be beneficial as the opportunity cost is so low but it's another way you could draw your library or mill out your opponent.

If you want me to suggest cuts you could tag me in a reply but usually I don't right away because it seems impolite idk.

But seriously, really cool deck. I've been on the fence about building something like this and you've pointed out some interactions I hadn't thought of initially.
