Looks like fun lol. Have you considered using Bone Saw and/or Cathar's Shield to use/abuse the Defiant Salvager, Quicksmith Genius and Reckless Fireweaver a bit more?

I made the following deck to try and attack the meta what do you think?Check out my newest brew: Mono Black Midrange My other decks(including some artifact fun!): NicholsGT

You would benefit more of having wheels than narrow card draw like Quicksmith Genius or Endbringer. Winds of Change, Incendiary Command and Magus of the Wheel are nice budget options. Staff of Nin also would fit really well here as win con + card draw.

I'm surpriced by the lack of Mycosynth Lattice and Unwinding Clock. Dross Scorpion is a must in a Forgemaster deck.

This is my 5% blue side speeking (people who think I runed a bad joke that was bad all ready,thinking this deck is not good,and did not like the Description, I'm going to go over the "combos" and stuff here. Why? Because I liked my Description and I'm going to keep it like that.) and I think I just came up with a guide of how this deck could work. Here's a great game for u should start.

Trun 1: Mountain and Implement of Combustion

Trun 2: Mountain and Reckless Fireweaver

Trun 3: Mountain and Salivating Gremlins

Trun 4: Quicksmith Genius then dump 0 mana artifacts, draw more 0 mana artifacts, try to play at least 6 0 mana artifacts, 20 damage, win.

if I don't get the combo, then what? Well, 95% red side so that's up for u to find out.

For the all-in sac artifacts theme:

  • Overseer of the Damned -> Herald of Anguish - You can probably discount Herald to a 2BB easily. The removal isn't quite as good, but the discard triggers are painful.
  • Executioner's Capsule -> Quicksmith Genius - The whole deck is centered around Daretti's -1, so you really don't need a lot of removal. You have 14 targeted removal spells. I'm big on Quicksmith Genius, as he triggers on tokens and vastly improves card quality.
  • Murderous Cut -> Chaos Warp - You actually only have 1 card in here that can kill a Pithing Needle (that names Daretti). A few more anti-artifact cards might be warranted.
  • Pentavus -> Hellkite Igniter/Hellkite Tyrant - was never a fan of Pentavus, as he's so dang slow. Also there doesn't seem to be any proliferate support so he is basically 12 mana for 5 artifacts.

I definitely think Pia's Revolution deserves a spot, although I haven't had a chance to actually play it yet to be sure.

Disciple of the Vault and Underhanded Designs are both pretty good too, but would be main-deck material if you were sacrificing things in waves with Krark-Clan Ironworks and such.

Emzed Good suggestions there! I've seen Squee, Goblin Nabob in a few lists for Daretti and I was assuming that was the reason why he was there as you're correct, amazing synergy with Daretti. The sad fact is I don't own a copy of Squee. A fact that I may have to remedy.

Quicksmith Genius would also be a great inclusion but sadly again, I don't currently own a copy as I didn't buy heavily into Kaladesh as my money is going to Amonkhet (because Bolas). However, a friend bought really heavy into Kaladesh and he is willing to part with cards at discounted prices...and I give him cash so his wife doesn't learn about his coffee habits.

Zealous Conscripts and Pithing Needle could be interesting inclusions as well. I sadly don't have either but I do have a Phyrexian Revoker in my collection just sitting around gathering dust that could be pulled out and used for a similar effect to the needle.

Squee, Goblin Nabob synergyzes well with Daretti, repeatedly discarding him provides lots of card advantage.
Zealous Conscripts is great against planeswalkers, and combines with Daretti or Goblin Welder to steal an opponent's artifact and then trash it to return something from your grave. Or you could use Conscripts to untap Welder and use him twice.
Quicksmith Genius could be another tool for digging through your deck.
Pithing Needle is a versatile interactive card, and you have plenty of ways to make use of a cheap artifact.

Daretti can use Anger as jet fuel and Squee, Goblin Nabob as everlasting gas to consistently enable card your card draw. With the new reprint of Gamble you can actually fetch Squee with a 100% success rate as it actually doesn't matter if you discard him, or any of the other artifacts in hand. You probably can also use some free cards off a Spinerock Knoll.

Quicksmith Genius just sets up everything for free.

Ghirapur Orrery should be a breeze to trigger and abuse.

Rings of Brighthearth can be a little pricey depending on your needs. For a cheaper alternative you can just copy the triggers of the things he's pulling around (and so much more) with a Strionic Resonator which does a good job at hitting most abilities and being relevant without cheese rings brings. Depending on the deck this can actually be a lot more useful. Dragonmaster Outcast, Utvara Hellkite, and Hellkite Igniter are all typically underrated dragons if you wanted to up the dragon game. The last being a reliable wincon with even a small pump.

The last set has a ton of stuff you can slot like Scrap Trawler, Pia's Revolution, Gonti's Aether Heart, Hope of Ghirapur, Implement of Combustion, Inspiring Statuary, Servo Schematic, and Treasure Keeper.

Also +1 for the name.

What about Quicksmith Genius. Possible as a one of it can allow you to get a lot of card draw since your constantly playing artifacts.
