I forgot to mention another big one that should be in your list in my not professional opinion and that is Quietus Spike

Ever pull out a win out of the blue because nobody thought you were a threat? I totally just did that last night with my Riku of Two Reflections deck.
I was playing with my deck on here. My friends are cool with me using the playtest feature while I tune it up a bit more. Anyway, things were going well for everyone but obviously Riku needs a ton of mana to kick off appropriately and I was falling behind.
Well one player got out Quietus Spike and hit with double strike. This dropped the opponent from 35 down to like 6 or 7.
- 35 - 3 combat damage = 32.
- 32 / 2 = 16
- 16 - 3 doublestrike combat damage = 13
- 13 / 2 rounded up = 6 or 7
After this, it turned into a blood feud where all out war broke.
I was at like 31 life and he was at like 11 with nothing left. Lol GG mate

Very cool to see small weird dudes like Bayou Dragonfly being put to good use :)
I see you run Explorer's Scope. If you think equipments that triggers when their creature hits an opponent is interesting, there are several more that could be good / fun. These include:

Quietus Spike is horrific with her. Also, Hammer of Nazahn is a beautiful asset should she be off the field. It basically functions as a "secret Commander" as it does the same thing she does. Lastly, Argentum Armor is a must-have with this Commander.

Is there a purpose for the talisman not returning to the Command Zone?
I kind of feel like most players who don't center around combos will just go for something such as Lightning Greaves for that immediate sure-fire protection at all times. That's what I'd do, at least. If I don't absolutely require something or am not centered around a theme such as Aetherflux Reservoir, The Chain Veil or Helm of the Host, I absolutely see no reason to not just keep Lightning Greaves in all decks.
Actually, Hammer of Nazahn would be awesome for Voltron builds.
In my Lathliss, Dragon Queen deck I might make an exception to my preferred rule and run either Urza's Incubator or Panharmonicon. If I ever get around to building my Aurelia, the Warleader deck I'd run Helm of the Host for infinite combat steps.
Aside from a few fringe decks that function exceedingly well with a very specific artifact, I can't see why someone won't just use Lightning Greaves, though.
Even with Sol Ring being banned, a T2 Lightning Greaves is still amazing. Once your Commander comes out, BOOM! Hexproof for free. I'd strongly recommend looking into, perhaps not banning, but restricting it so it can't be your talisman.
As I said, there are decks that would prefer to run something different, but aside from a handful of Commanders out there, there's really no reason to not have it.
Regardless, the point remains.

Quietus Spike would be good if you're gonna have an unblockable crew
