OOOOOO cool idea!!!! With Dreamscape Artist, and depending on the budget, you could add Ancient Den..... Seat of the Synod.... Vault of Whispers... those would be GREAT sac fodder for dreamscape since you just get them back eventually!!!

So, first off this isn't standard, if you remove the Seat of the Synod, Sydri, Galvanic Genius, and Hanna, Ship's Navigator it'll be modern legal. Next, you need to figure out what your deck is trying to do. Does it want to flood the board with artifacts like modern affinity decks (http://www.mtgconflux.com/2017/09/11/affinity-primer-2017/), do you want to outvalue your opponent with a midrange artifact deck, similar to standard UG constructs(https://www.channelfireball.com/articles/deck-of-the-day-u-g-constructs/), or do you want to just beat your opponent in the late game with a few giant artifacts like blue tron (https://www.channelfireball.com/articles/deck-of-the-day-blue-tron-modern/).
Next, you generally want to increase your consistency by having multiple copies of cards. The rule I use is 4: I want this card as early and often as possible 3: I want this card every game, but multiples are bad or I'm okay getting it in the mid game 2: I want this card every game, but multiples are bad and it's a card I want only in the mid-late game 1: It's a tutor target or it's acting as the 5th copy of a card I want 4 of
This is not a hard and fast rule, but it's a good place to start. After you figure out the cards you want, here's a good way to figure out how many lands you want: https://www.channelfireball.com/articles/how-many-lands-do-you-need-to-consistently-hit-your-land-drops/
Once you figure out all of those things, it'll be easier to improve your deck. If you don't know how many of a card you want, you can just put 4 of all of your best cards in the deck, and then put anything else you're thinking about in the maybeboard. Good luck

Ikr, on my artifact deck I use both Seat of the Synod and Vault of Whispers but have to remove those and just use the Citadel for Modern formal games. Those artifact lands are a great boon, but that's why they're banned lol. Check it out if you want Rain of Quicksilver, I'll have a look at yours

I must say I love this one; it's weird to see you in stax environment, but I see those control elements of yours :)
Since I see you are running some artifact support and really remind me of my attempt of Raff (even though it was slightly different), I was wondering if you are considering Walking Ballista as another finisher and another infinite mana sink? It can be tutored from any of your current artifact sources and with addition of i.e. Trinket Mage he's gonna be out there for sure! You can also add Seat of the Synod and Ancient Den to give him more targets.

Hey, looks fun!
Just so you know, Seat of the Synod isn't legal in modern. If you're just playing with friends around the kitchen table then have at it, but if you're trying to bring it to anything modern sanctioned (like friday night magic) you'll be promptly disqualified.
As for actual suggestions, the biggest one I can offer is less related to individual cards and more to deckbuilding on the whole - consistency is key. I know when you're first building decks having so many cool cards that do so many cool things it feels like the best thing to do is run a little bit of everything, but I promise that isn't the case. If you want to steer this to be more competitive you'll want to figure out which cards are your 'best' cards and run 3-4 copies of those. Having 2-ofs is fine for things that are only good at certain parts of the game, but it isn't generally what you want to do since it makes it harder to draw your best cards. For example, I'd say you probably want 4x Tempered Steel so you can stack em up and make your thopters huge. 3-4 of Sai would make sense as well.
Whether you decide to take all of my advice or none of it, good luck and have fun!
