Thanks for all the advice, guys :)
I think it's important to note that the decks I'll be playing against aren't the fully fleshed-out versions of their commanders; for example, the Meren of Clan Nel Toth deck is currently just an upgraded precon (though he's looking to buy a Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger and Sheoldred, Whispering One soon), so I won't have to worry much about being underpowered compared to my friends.
So, as Bhaal666 mentioned, the Breya, Etherium Shaper deck has always been my pet-favorite of the three. Although I probably won't be able to get most of the landbase for a while (damn you, fetches!), most of the deck can be bought on the cheap and it has that janky-but-powerful feel I enjoy.
For Izu_Korasu, the idea behind Breya, Etherium Shaper as the commander was that she could serve as a utility piece for using your excess Myr tokens (in addition to giving me four colors). Though, now that you bring up Silas Renn, Seeker Adept & Akiri, Line-Slinger, I'm starting to reconsider. I may make the switch to those two, but I'll have to find a card to cut in the maindeck to make room for them. Any suggestions?
And yeah, Daedalus19876, I've been interested in Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons since she was spoiled, and she seems awesome (love your deck, btw!). While she's probably the best long-term investment in terms of acquiring staples and such, I currently run an upgraded Daretti, Scrap Savant deck when we play, so I could cross some of the artifacts I'm currently using between the decks. Not sure how practical that is, but it's an option I suppose.
Anyway, I'm gonna make a few revisions to the decks and mull over my options for a while. Again, thanks for all the help, I really appreciate it :)

so im leaning towards Hapatra, g/b gives you solid removal against the problematic cards from the above decks, and while I think it can benefit from some infect (Blightsteel Colossus, Triumph of the Hordes etc), I like the build and the creative space its exploring.
Breya feels like the wrong commander, she really doesnt do anything for the theme. i think Silas Renn, Seeker Adept+Akiri, Line-Slinger may be a better fit for the decklist. (one being a living Cranial Plating and he other connecting for artifact recovery)

An EDH Lord, wow, I'm certainly honored! The esper combination of the color wheel is not one of my strong points in Magic, but let's see what cards I can think of that may help your cause.
Have you considered cards like Thopter Assembly or Myr Battlesphere? Your deck seems hungry for 1/1 dorks to sac, tap, etc. How about Chief Engineer? Put those 1/1's to further use! You definitely need a little more card advantage - Consecrated Sphinx, Sphinx's Revelation, Blue Sun's Zenith, Skullclamp. Time Sieve is another card worth looking into for your colors, as is Silas Renn, Seeker Adept.
I think the deck doesn't look too bad, just need to play test it and tinker around with it until you get it to do what you want :)

Saskia with damage doublers is good with a way to blink her. Hit with 10 power, which is doubled to 20, which is then doubled to 40 to the chosen opponent.
Akiri, Line-Slinger // Silas Renn, Seeker Adept is a good aggro partnership. Aggro robots or artifact voltron. With built in cranial plating, Akiri hits hard and quick. With the colors you also have access to many combos as back up. Breya is better at combos

I dig the political idea of Ludevic; my only suggestion is if it's something you're just playing with friends, or if you're at an LGS with familiar folk they'll kind of catch on to the whole "We get cards in exchange for sitting through extra turns" strategy. I feel like Silas Renn, Seeker Adept might be more worth while for Vial Smasher if you wanted to go about the reanimator/artifact business?

Looks like a fun idea, I like the fact that you can just switch over commanders if one starts getting removed too many times and menace a swift kill with either one of them.
I've never tried anything like this but I've been playing Akiri, Line-Slinger in 2 different decks now, and she is insanely underrated. Most people don't care about her because she reads 0/3, and that works in her favor. As for Silas Renn, Seeker Adept, deathtouch commanders are always an headache for opponents and this one is no exception, even when he's not too large he's annoying to deal with.
I don't know about competitivity, I think Breya, Etherium Shaper would have been more strong as a general for these colors overall, but considering the strategy you planned, it actually looks pretty good. I'd suggest you ran Sram, Senior Edificer though, he fits here perfectly and maybe he alone might be enough for you to consider Reliquary Tower and Venser's Journal, give it a try and see if you need those effects regularly or not, but Sram definitely should be there, in a deck made of artifacts, he's insane. I've been thinking of including him in my Breya Deck and probably will have to find a spot in there somehow.
I've linked to my Breya deck up there if you want to check it, but I believe you'd find more relevant cards for this particular build in my other Akiri deck, so check this one out:
