Non-Linear I don’t think Darksteel Forge belongs in the deck. It costs 9 mana (I’m trying to keep the avg cmc of the deck fairly low), and as long as Shirei is out I can recur most of my artifact creatures. Myr Retriever , Workshop Assistant , Scarecrone , Salvaging Station also help with bringing artifacts back. I’d be more inclined to add it if Shirei were an artifact, since the deck can crumble to well timed spot removal on Shirei.

If you run Brass Secretary might I suggest Scarecrone as an alternative/another outlet? One less Mana on the activated ability and an extra ability on top of that. I'll also second the Grinding Station and Altar of Dementia adds since they can further you to your other combos.

Oh and you can run Sakashima the Impostor to get a second copy of Reaper King in play.
Finally there is Noxious Gearhulk . It would just be good utility and it would be another synergy card with Scarecrone.

Hi, I played Shirei off the cuff a few times as I saw he was cute. But I like your niche view of using wiping artifacts repeatedly.
Have you thought about: Canal Dredger (lets you recur destroyed/hated out pieces) Coretapper + Magistrate's Scepter for an easy 3 card combo? Run Snow-Covered Swamp so you don't share mana with extraplanar lens (but only if you insist on using it) Blood Pet - extra mana every turn. Makes for faster shirei Skittering Surveyor and Skyscanner are both card advantage engines with shirei + sac outlet
Furthermore you should run The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale , Mox Diamond , Mox Opal , Dark Ritual , Culling the Weak , Mox Amber (since your entire gameplan is focused around shirei being in play anyway), Chains of Mephistopheles vs decks with draw power, Contamination , Imperial Seal . Now next is for sheer faster wins. Ad Nauseam , Pitiless Plunderer can function as a semi- Phyrexian Altar , Demonic Consultation so that you can find your win conditions faster, Tainted Pact is another competitive level backup but requires the rest of the deck to be tuned around it.
When alliegance set drops I'd also recommend Priest of Forgotten Gods
This is clearly a pet-deck. Play it however you want. But honestly? You need to make room for Toxic Deluge , Lake of the Dead , Strip Mine , Wasteland , Dust Bowl . In stax black needs every advantage it can get. But building up until you have a critical mass of mana like with Exsanguinate / whatever is just unrealistic in a competitive meta. It's far too easily disrupted.
A Crucible of Worlds & some fetch-lands would go well. That way at least you'd be able to gain mana advantage turn by turn with almost no loss. Lastly, try running Meteor Golem - I've seen him be busted with Scarecrone and other recursion effects, but ymmv. Especially if you don't like using sorceress queen.

With Teshar and Sensei's Divining Top in play, you get to draw a card for every 2 mana you spend.

So a sort of Scarecrone tron build?
I feel like diving more into tools for a grindy matchup where post will shine might be best if you want that route. Running black for things like Distended Mindbender and more value oriented midrange creatures like Filigree Familiar/Solemn Simulacrum might perform well.
