Masterwork of Ingenuity and Bloodforged Battle-Axe would be good. You might want more effects that let you dig through your deck, Infiltration Lens and Mask of Memory would be good. Also Scytheclaw could end games with double strike. Nice looking deck! Good luck!

midget_overlord: We don't do land destruction in our meta, and we consider blood moon effects to be along those lines. But Scytheclaw is a great suggestion!

The main strategy I'd go with is generating large amounts of artifact tokens/creatures to win with either riches or crazy recursion loops with giant beaters, sacking a few myr or thopters with something like Champion of Stray Souls to bring back all your giant beasties. This is just a bunch of possible options that would help with that strategy.

Have made some improvements to the deck, first thing first, lands, 27 plains where a little bit to much so I exchanged them for some a little bit more useful lands:

-Reliquary Tower With the new cards Drawing is going up and its always good to have this.

-Inventors' Fair Some Artifact tutoring is always welcomed, specially when you can combo Quietus Spike with Scytheclaw, or easily bring out Explorer's Scope to get those extra basic lands out.

-Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx Since this is a monocolor commander devotion will be high get that extra needed mana for the expensive cards (mana cost talking) out faster.

-Winding Canyons Flash Avacyn, Angel of Hope is always nice, but you could also take advantage of Sun Titan ability right away, apart from other advantages.

-Ancient Den Helps getting the metalcraft ready for Puresteel Paladin, Dispatch and Etched Champion.

-Mistveil Plains Wanna get back those preacious creatures in the graveyard, well, NOW YOU CAN !

Grafted Exoskeleton because a 6/6 that gets a +1/+1 counter basically every time it attacks with an equipment that gives it +2/+2 and infect, makes a very scary CMDR. Other good stuff is Grafted Wargear, Scytheclaw, Ring of Xathrid cause regenerate, O-Naginata, Magebane Armor because you are in red and probably running red board wipes like Starstorm basically keeps him safe from all red based board wipes and what ever else like Pestilence. Another good one is Kusari-Gama. All the "swords". And that's just equipment. Clout of the Dominus, Helm of the Ghastlord, Sleeper's Robe, and Fist of the Demigod are all good. Some others are good like Skeletal Grimace, Shade's Form, Endless Scream, Phyresis, Glistening Oil, and Corrupted Conscience gonna be good in many situations. I mean I'm barely scratching the surface. There's so many ways you can voltron. But this is what I got for ya. Cheers

This is a really cool idea. Have you considered running some colorless instants and sorceries to add an element of response to the deck? Some budget cards that come to mind for me are Warping Wail, Spatial Contortion, and Scour from Existence. As for budget equipment, here are some that might fit your fancy: Sword of Vengeance, Trepanation Blade, Trailblazer's Boots, Ring of Xathrid (I know Hope of Ghirapur isn't black, but regeneration is always good), Ring of Evos Isle (same thing but hexproof), and Scytheclaw.

It just dawned on me that Quietus Spike and Scytheclaw are great deterrants to someone blocking Mirri (especially combined with Mirri's natural first strike). They also function offensively, but I'm not sure how effective they will be.
