If I may suggest some artifact synergy creatures, perhaps Foundry Inspector, Steel Overseer, Burnished Hart, Jhoira's Familiar, Myr Retriever, Etherium Sculptor, Palladium Myr, Myr Enforcer, Master of Etherium, Frogmite, Chief of the Foundry, Sylvok Replica, Esperzoa, and of course, Sol Ring, despite the fact that it's not a creature.

Okay, now the Mana Geode makes sense. I'd simply do an even mix of half Plains & half Islands because more color is better and it might worry your opponent that you might be running some sort of W/U control deck.

Artifacts are NOT really my thing, I've had a few all Artifact decks. But my suggestions would be simply what I know works.

Make it 4xSteel Overseers If using Plains I'd have 4xDisenchants, especially if they have anyway of taking your creatures i.e Agent of Treachery even worse if they are also using Portal of Sanctuary with it.

Shadowspear is fun. especially with Gingerbrute.

Altar of the Pantheon Also can work like Mana Geode. - Also its a Common.

Stonecoil Serpent especially for mid game.

Maybe one or two Dance of the Manse.

I've been brainstorming, and Steel Overseer was also printed in M11. You could make a very modern-like affinity deck, since many of the current modern artifact staples came out of the Scars of Mirrodin block: Vault Skirge Memnite Signal Pest Galvanic Blast. Then, either Mox Opal or Etched Champion in your mythic slot.

The "within 8 standard sets" means you can't get the whole Alara block and the whole Scars of Mirrodin block, but you can get part of each. I would probably go with Conflux/Alara Reborn/Magic 2010/Zendikar/Worldwake/Rise of the Eldrazi/Magic 2011/Scars of Mirrodin. That way, I could fill it out with more artifact creatures that like artifact creatures, like Court Homunculus Salvage Slasher Arsenal Thresher Glassdust Hulk.

Consider replacing Smothering Tithe with something like The Antiquities War, to help you find your Steel Overseer. Or maybe some flavor of Tezzeret? I just don't think Smothering Tithe will actually help very much, because you don't even have a real payoff for all the treasure it'll make.

Looks great, love the golem token theme. Try to focus more on your strategies by replacing cards like Altar of the Brood, Archaeomancer, andMnemonic Wall for cards that either do the sacrifice triggers or help make your golems more powerful. Although those cards do belong in a Brago deck, they are not helping the two most reoccurring strategies in your deck. I like the two you have going on; For one you are massing a board state of artifact creatures, the other you are forcing your opponents to sacrifice their board states. I would suggest running Thousand-Year Elixir and maybe Steel Overseer to give them tons of counters. You can flicker steel overseer with the elixir on board to get multiple uses per turn. Another fun trick with brago is giving him doublestrike so he triggers twice, once in the first strike and a second time in the normal combat damage step. Lastly, I suggest more mana rocks, you will beable to flicker them for tons of mana when brago attacks. Avoid using Worn Powerstone for this reason because, if you flicker it, it comes in tapped and doesn't provide you any more mana that turn.

Always keep in mind when building your deck's strategy: how do I want to win, and how do I want to prevent my opponent's from winning against me. Once you know that, you can go through each card in your deck and ask, does this card help in those strategies. Like, how does Time Warp help your strategy? Just because a card is good, doesn't mean it belongs in your deck. Hope that helps my friend. :)

The only "combo" I see is the ability to untap the artifact cards multiple times like Steel Overseer.

This is not very powerful I think and is too reliant on a single card. Here are the rules for this tournament.

Rules - 2 Mythic, - 4 Rare, - 8 Uncommon, - can sub Mythic for Rare eg: 0 mythic & 6 rare, - 4 copies max, - 60 card min, - 15 card sideboard, - all cards (except those in your sideboard) must be drawn from within the span of 8 consecutive standard released sets and must have been legal in standard at that time.

If you are looking for combo ideas, Splinter Twin and Deceiver Exarch were in the same standard together, so it is an option that will only take 4 rares and 4 uncommons, filling the rest of the slots with whatever. This gives you New Pryrexia, Mirrodin Besieged, Scars of mirrodin and Rise of the Eldrazi (4 sets) to work with. The next sets are Innistrad block and Return to Ravnica (not counting core sets), which give you a ton of powerful cards in blue-red to work with. The rest of the cards can easily be a swath of control cards that were available in those sets.
