Hello. I've been playing Feldon for 2 years. Here is my list: http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/feldon-v3/
I'll name some cards that you aren't running that I think are invaluable.
Keldon Firebombers, Sandstone Oracle, Pathrazer of Ulamog, Slobad, Goblin Tinkerer, Scrap Mastery, Goblin Matron,Spine of Ish Sah, Codex Shredder, Anger, Avalanche Riders, Solemn Simulacrum, Anvil of Bogardan, Wild Guess, and Cathartic Reunion.
Keldon Firebombers has been helpful against decks that ramp really hard with land. Sandstone Oracle is amazing against any refined deck. Pathrazer of Ulamog just wins the game (I've got him out on turn 4, GG). Slobad, Goblin Tinkerer is very helpful against decks with a lot of artifact removal. Scrap Mastery saves you after someone wipes the board of artifacts. Goblin Welder is found by Goblin Matron, which is insane since Welder is very powerful in a Feldon deck and especially in my list since I run Spine of Ish Sah. Spine of Ish Sah is easy to recur, get out quickly, and is unconditional removal. Codex Shredder basically is repeatable card draw in a feldon deck. Anger helps you play around instant speed removal (no more removal in response to greaves, you still get to activate feldon anyways). Avalanche Riders blows up annoying lands. Solemn Simulacrum ramps you up and draws cards (he's great after Keldon Firebombers ETB trigger). Anvil of Bogardan is a great way to get fatties in your yard. Wild Guess is a great and quick way to enable feldon. Ditto with Cathartic Reunion.

Few changes to tighten up the deck some more.
Goblin Offensive out for Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker: Offensive was great when I had a huge proc of Mana Echoes, but when I didn't have then (almost always) it was just a very inefficient token spell that I never used. Kiki-Jiki will be able to clone all those token generating creatures, and the powerful creatures with ETB effects like Goblin Matron. Only 6 of my creatures can't be copied by him, and most of those would be less useful with a copy anyway.
Slate of Ancestry out for Farsight Mask: This is an experimental change, but should result in more consistent draw without making me discard a lot like slate is currently doing. I just don't have enough red mana to keep with it. At worst it discourages players from attacking me, which also helps.
Altar of the Brood out for Illusionist's Bracers: Although Altar is very, very strong in this deck, it also got me an huge amount of hate. If I had more mill mechanics I might keep it, but until then it is sideboarded. I never thought to add the Bracers to this deck because I mistakenly thought that Rings of Brighthearth was strictly better. Once I finally read Bracers I couldn't believe I was missing out on double procs on both of Ib's abilities, or being able to throw them on Burnished Hart, Goblin Chirurgeon, Goblin Welder, Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, Krenko, Mob Boss, Mogg Catcher, Purphoros, God of the Forge, Sensation Gorger (althought I'm not sure if it would net you 8 cards for one discarded hand?), or Slobad, Goblin Tinkerer. Put Bracers on all the things!
Hoarding Dragon out for Sensation Gorger: While I would love to be able to consistently tutor out Crucible of Worlds or another powerful artifact, this dragon is just too expensive and too slow. I also can't guarantee that I would be able to get rid of him to get the artifact in hand, and then I still have to cast it. Instead, I am going to go with Sensation Gorger to increase the already improving card draw.
Goblin Warrens out for Goblin Matron: This was a hard card, and maybe not a permanent one, but now that I am replacing some effects with their "On A Stick" goblin variant, I need to better be able to tutor them. I also have multiple ways to copy this ETB effect, which is great.
Voracious Dragon out for Expedition Map: Not a straight trade in any regard, I just realized that the dragon better be used as a finisher, or else it can be pretty counter-intuitive to the rest of the deck. My meta is also very flyer heavy, so it was easy for that huge flyer to be chump blocked by my opponents. Being able to fetch a Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle, Cavern of Souls for a Krenko cast, a Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx for more ramp, or a Strip Mine is really nice. Plus I can recur the Map fairly easily.
I am still trying to find space, or determine the necessity of, the cards in the sideboard.
As always, looking for any comments, criticisms, or unique card interactions that I may not have considered!

Hey! Just a quick note here, Blade of Selves will make tokens that all see each other and then the Legend rule applies :\
- 11/4/2015 If the equipped creature is legendary, the tokens will all enter the battlefield. Then youll choose one of them to remain on the battlefield. The others will be put into your graveyard. Any enters-the-battlefield or dies triggers of the tokens will work.
Great for any creatures with ETB effects, though.
As for any suggestions I can think of - I'm a huge Artificer fan :)
Sram, Senior Edificer seems extremely good in any voltron deck.
And you may as well go podracing here! Helps metalcraft! Maybe consider the stronger ones like Smuggler's Copter to draw, or Skysovereign, Consul Flagship? Or if you just want to bust out a big body - Consulate Dreadnought
Indomitable Archangel protects your stuff.
Goblin Welder, Eldrazi Displacer and Slobad, Goblin Tinkerer are all very useful; Welder recurs anything that might have been destroyed, Slobad protects what is about to be destroyed, and Displacer blinks your battlesphere - or an attacking general.
Myrsmith just helps churn this token cauldron for you to improvise with.
Argentum Armor is messy and janky, but I love it. And you can probably cheat it out.
If you had the money I would highly recommend accelerating the mana. Maybe not Mana Crypt (if you can, get it) but at least Mana Vault Basalt Monolith and Chrome Mox. You could also consider Unwinding Clock in that event.
I'd also consider Daretti, Scrap Savant. His plus ability is insane, and let's paint a picture for his minus;
Sac a myr token, bring back a Sword of Feast and Famine.

After careful consideration:
Ghirapur AEther Grid (re-added)
Have been added to the mix. The Welder has been an all star in other artifact decks I have, like Breya. The mentality here is to weld something like an artifact land or essentially something I don't need contextually in favour of any stax card that may have been removed or countered. Similarly, Slobad is something I'm trying; sac'ing an artifact that may be hurting me more than opponents only to protect what I want seems worthy of tester slot. Almost makes me want to tinker with King Macar, the Gold-Cursed.
Magus is essentially a sideboard card whenever I'm dealing with token decks. It doesn't really put up enough to warrant a mainboard 99.

Daedalus19876 was also looking into more utility creatures as well. In events where stax cards run their course, or if they've been dealt with, Slobad, Goblin Tinkerer or Goblin Welder could possibly be useful?

First of all thanks a lot for your insights!
Let me try to answer everything. Eldrazi Displacer is actually much better than I remembered (by the time OGW came out I was playing a clanky abzan deck made for the Emperor format that used it with Siege Rhino to kill everyone playing as the emperor!) and for some reason when I wrote this description I was thinking it said "exile... and bring it back tapped EoT." which would have prevented that infinite loop. In the meantime I realized that (I believe while looking at your own deck) but didn't update the description so far. Definitely that was something that I would have noticed while playing, but I didn't have the chance to test the deck properly so far.
As for Lightning Greaves + Padeem, Consul of Innovation, definitely worthy inclusions (the greaves to such an extent that I never bother including it in a maybeboard because I know they should be there) but I still didn't get my copies: Padeem because I could trade it with a friend who I know has one up for trade and greaves, because I have one or two decks with one copy in that I'm about to strip to pieces or repurpose, so I'm going to get one of those into this list in time. By the way, Padeem is a woman! I wouldn't have guessed it unless someone pointed it out on youtube at some point eheh. But back onto the deck itself, my problem at this point is to define what is relevant or not in this deck, and most times at my own lists I try to figure this out by cutting some autoincludes for other more doubtful cards, until I understand which one underperforms, so then I can bring in the proven overperformers. Since my playgroup is pretty casual, this is rarely a big handicap for me, and IMO is a great way to test some cards you are not so sure about. Say I'm in doubt between Hanna, Ship's Navigator and Slobad, Goblin Tinkerer (which is not the case, at least before getting some games under my belt). Wouldn't they be kind of cannibalizing each other's function? I'd rather test both at the same time, than choose one over the other and never have the chance to properly compare nor test how they synergize between them, even if they were seemingly worse cards on their own. I know Padeem is going to be vital to keep me safe in many situations, and Greaves are always worth including except when shroud is an handicap because of auras and such, so these are cards that I know I want, but first I want to figure out for sure which ones I can live without.

I'm going to suggest you change this completely, here it goes! :)
But a weakness is many do not untap...but wait! Artifacts like Magewright's Stone, Voltaic Construct, Thousand-Year Elixir, Clock of Omens, Voltaic Key, etc. do just that. More fun though can be had with Threaten effects that you can use either on opponents' stuff or to untap your own. Interactive decks few!
And there's lots of fun utility golems to abuse. Ancestral Statue can bounce a big guy who attacked and just recast cheaply due to Rakdos' ability. Solemn Simulacrum is a staple. Beast of Burden takes advantage of token decks. Glass Golem's art looks wicked ;). Precursor Golem can add in some 1-shot draw spells like Crimson Wisps to draw a ton if lucky. Sundering Titan for fun control.
Feldon of the Third Path, Daretti, Scrap Servant, Kurkesh, Onakke Ancient, Slobad, Goblin Tinkerer, Tuktuk the Explorer, and Urabrask the Hidden are all legendaries that play nicely with a theme like this I think.
So keep your burn/damage to activate Rakdos' ability, add some haste enabler like Fervor so your golems can attack upon entering, include fun enchantments like Blood Mist, Flameshadow Conjuring, and Mana Echoes.
