Why don't go Full Combo mode here? Grand Architect is a great engine, but also allows for some other synergies with Heartless Summoning, like the Myr Retriever Combo + Altar of the Brood. Could use Trinket Mage to find the Altar, and Muddle the Mixture to find the other pieces of your preference.
The other Upside is the Alternate Wincons and resiliency of the 4 Myr Superion Strategy. Very few decks can recover from a Wurmcoil Engine turn 3 followed by a Metamorph.. Glint-Nest Crane is Also Amazing here without a doubt. i would Suggest:

zeusbad yeah I already thought about including her too since i already run Trinket Mage but I just can't decide on something to cut for her.
Imo it should definetely be a creature that I'd be exchanging her with, I don't hvae a lot to choose from this section though.
Sphinx Summoner and Ethersworn Adjudicator are already on their way out and I consider cutting Deadeye Navigator for Blightsteel Colossus and Riddlesmith for Phyrexian Metamorph and I need the rest of the creatures for combos except for Brago, King Eternal, Trinket Mage, Baleful Strix and Scarecrone. With Deadeye gone, Brago will become my new value egnine so I don't want to cut him. So we have Baleful Strix and Scarecrone which I can better abuse than the Trophy Mage and at last Trinket Mage.
I don't know, what'd you exchange him with?

What do you men exactly,zeusbad?
In case you mean Sphinx Summoner, I removed it because I don't feel like it's useful enough because excepr for maybe Pili-Pala none of it's targets are essential to my strategy. I don't see where I removed another tutor.

I must say that I love this deck. I'm trying to build something similar now. I have to ask You for some cards exclusion. Could You please explain why are You not including this cards in the deck:
- Swords to Plowshares
- All other black removals
And this combos:
Mycosynth Lattice + VandalblastDarksteel Forge + Mycosynth Lattice + Nevinyrral's DiskMetalworker + Staff of Domination + 3 artifacts in hand: Infinite mana, life, creature tap/untaps and draw your deck.
Thank You for help!

Magister Sphinx blinking this would suck for your opponents
Sphinx Summoner blink makes it work several times
Eldrazi Displacer one of Breya's infinite combo pieces.
Phyrexian Metamorph can blink him to copy any ETB critter effect you want
Myr Battlesphere self explanatory
I will think of more.

There's some other tutors to consider as well. Let's consider all your current tutors:
- Arcum Dagsson
- Diabolic Intent
- Kuldotha Forgemaster
- Treasure Mage !<6 cmc
- Trinket Mage !<1 cmc
- Tezzeret the Seeker
- Muddle the Mixture =2 cmc
- Inventors' Fair
Other tutor cards available on the cheap aka ~$10 or less:
- Enlightened Tutor
- Beseech the Queen
- Planar Portal
- Night Dealings works well with Freya's ability
- Lim-Dul's Vault
- Long-Term Plans
- Citanul Flute creatures only
- Ring of Three Wishes
- Sphinx Summoner artifact creatures only
- Rune-Scarred Demon
- Plus the ones you've already mentioned.
The only ones that are worth running above IMO is Long-Term Plans and Enlightened Tutor. As far as your choices are concerned, Insidious Dreams is nice but if it's countered then you just discarded your hand for nothing. Demonic Collusion is also nice but expensive CMC wise. However, both ID and DC helps to fill up our GY. Long-Term Plans could sub in for one of those two possibly. Enlightened Tutor if you can manage to squeeze it in (or sub it for Diabolic Intent to free up ~$6; ET was recently reprinted but it's also more restrictive). Your call lol.
I'll to get back to you on if that's enough tutors when I'm not at work but I don't see why it wouldn't be after listing all of yours out :)

MEH (not thematic/not useful enough)
- Archangel of Tithes
- Breaching Leviathan
- Glint-Nest Crane
- Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts
- Aura of Silence
- Silumgar's Command
- Sharuum the Hegemon + Sculpting Steel + Panharmonicon means you can bring all artifacts back from your graveyard.
- Salvaging Station + 0 cost noncreature artifact (artifact lands, Everflowing Chalice, Paradise Mantle, Tormod's Crypt and Welding Jar are my recommendations) + Sydri, Galvanic Genius + Marionette Master or Disciple of the Vault
- Voltaic Construct + Sydri, Galvanic Genius + Basalt Monolith or Dreamstone Hedron or Thran Dynamo = infinte mana
- Aradara Express - 5/5 menace for +Sydri's
- Ovalchase Dragster - 4/4 trample haste for +Sydri's
- Skysovereign, Consul Flagship - 5/5 flying for +Sydri's + bomb-titan damage
