DrukenReaps I was thinking of Bruse taro before but decided not to include him. Then since you pointed it out I had another look and realised how good he is. While Silas Renn, Seeker Adept is a good card (that fits the Artifact theme well) partnering it with Akiri would mean a 4c deck without green (unfortunately this leaves us with little ramp which helps get turn three Jor Kadeen, the Prevailer And other nice early cards.
I saw the blue version of Ancient Den and Great Furnace and wanted to put that type of land in this deck. I put ancient den in and couldn’t find great furnace so thank you. Darlsteel citadel looks like a nice card to.
I’ll have a look at those links then make appropriate adjustments ^-^

You should really take advantage of the Partner ability on your commander and add either Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder or Silas Renn, Seeker Adept. Silas would add a lot of potential to your deck by giving access to two additional colors but Bruse will allow you to knock players out of the game by giving Akiri doublestrike.
If you are not aware a player loses the game if they take 21 damage from any single commander. The partner ability allows you to run 2 commanders but the deck must still add up to 100 cards. So it will be 98 + commanders.
These pages can be a little overwhelming but I would highly recommend looking them over for ideas on what people will usually run. These are just suggestions though.
You have made some fun choices already. I would get that land count up to 36 though and put in Great Furnace, Ancient Den, and Darksteel Citadel. Looks like you are hurting on removal too. Some people recommend starting a deck with 36 lands, 10 draw sources, 10 removal, and 10 accel (usually mana rocks) and then changing things as you play the deck to match your style better.

I have a partner commander deck with Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa and Silas Renn, Seeker Adept. It uses a lot of 2/2 creatures that give me cards when they deal player damage.
Last night i played Cold-Eyed Selkie and attacked/damaged a planeswalker. We can't figure out if i still get to draw cards with the new planeswalker rules.
So, i want to draw the cards, can i attack planeswalkers?

I mean really I would cut Storm Crow but obviously if you're running that you don't care how good it is.
This doesn't really seem like a Future Sight deck, Triple blue and low to the ground with few real pure card advantage engines means I don't think you need it.
Skyshroud Claim seems like an odd choice. I understand the mana dorks but then you have this expensive ramp spell when your average cmc is low. If you feel you need more ramp, Farseek or Sakura-Tribe Elder.
Etherium Sculptor is odd. I don't think you have enough cards that care. You might get like 2 mana off this over the course of the game. I don't think that does enough.
I feel you have a bigger issue though. Silas Renn, Seeker Adept doesn't really fit in this deck. If you just want the colors, you should cut the spellbombs and such and keep the bare best like the swords and the Strix. If you want the effect, you should run more payoffs, and artifacts you wanna sacrifice and stuff like Glissa, the Traitor to reward you. And as a contrast, you should slow your deck down a smidge to accommodate the grindy game plan.
The way it is now, sometimes you're gonna draw the wrong half of your deck and the artifacts are just going to be cards that do almost nothing when you could be playing cards that jell with your game plan of go wide tempo hate bears.
Finally Gavony Township. That is all.

For sure is a fun sounding route, you certainly don't need Oloro, just wondering if you'd gone there.
You can go quite Artifact-y with Triplets if it takes your fancy since they incidentally are - Mindslaver with Academy Ruins / (Buried Ruin+Crucible of Worlds) / Silas Renn, Seeker Adept is on-theme, Filigree Angel if you end up artifact heavy.
Don't forget the Liquimetal Coating for Memnarch too!

- Jor Kadeen, the Prevailer out -> Vedalken Humiliator (Make opponents creatures not matter)

Akiri, Line-Slinger + almost anyone is a really strong combo. Having a vigilant, first striking creature which is rather easily a 5/3 (at least) by turn 3 makes for some very good beats. I personally enjoy combining her with Silas Renn, Seeker Adept to give the deck more of a long game plan and access to some of the best tutors in the format, although Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder can give the deck more speed in a 1v1 commander setting.
Edgar Markov is another extremely powerful aggro commander, and so is General Tazri, though in tazri's case you are confined strictly to playing allies, and she has a lightly more midrange aspect to her than any true aggro.
Purphoros, God of the Forge is another potent aggro commander, though purphoros can TECHNICALLY be called a combo commander by the same arguments that have always plagued burn decks; they don't attack to get your life down to 0, but instead employ spell shenanigans.
Najeela, the Blade-Blossom seems like a decent commander for aggro, but she also is arguably more of a combo commander, going infinite with any number of cards, the most simple of them being Sword of Feast and Famine. (Works because sword untaps your lands when damage is dealt, and you activate najeela's ability in the clean-up step of combat.)
I've also always liked Omnath, Locus of Rage as an aggro commander, since all you need in that deck is omnath himself and a bunch of ramp cards; the deck is the epitome of consistency and simplicity in an aggro commander deck, though he is often far too slow off the ground to be competitively viable. You just have to take too many turns to set up a kill.
