I would cut Nullify or Stoic Rebuttal for Counterspell, since they are strictly worse. Master of the Feast is another great creature for Nekusar, a 5/5 flying body for 3 can be a great deterrent. I would also run a few more basics, especially since you only have 2 swamps and almost a third of your deck is black

I considered Remand but Stoic Rebuttal is way better here with Fatal Push being better than Dismember because its cheaper and will hit most creatures in the format. I might sideboard dismember though so thanks for the upvote and the suggestions!

Hmm... a few things:
You are running both Hardened Scales and Walking Ballista, so you might as well add Rite of Passage to combo off.Metallic Rebuke is nice and all... But Stoic Rebuttal is generally a better counter in artifact heavy decks. Animation Module is a great card if used in the right deck... But without an infinite mana combo is kind of lackluster.
Your sideboard could use some work, as you have nothing against titanshift, only one card against dredge, nothing against affinity aside from Pithing Needle, and most importantly in this meta, no consistent and effective ways of dealing with infect. May I recommend Tormod's Crypt, Hurkyl's Recall something along the line of Shadow of Doubt and Melira, Sylvok Outcast?
On a side note, you did beat me to creating the idea, I found yours under the 'similar decks' tab

Have you considered a 1-2 inclusion of Stoic Rebuttal over a straight 4 inclusion of Metallic Rebuke? I feel that your deck runs slow enough that such an inclusion would hold value into your mid game.

Hey! The ultimate permission deck..... sigh, here we go!
Just a few suggestions:

Budget to me is like, under 5$, so if something is over that point my bad
Panharmonicon, since you have alot of ETB effects from both artifacts and creatures.
Pain Lands I would also consider, helping to really get the deck's tempo up to speed, as well as more mana accelerants, like Burnished Hart. Having lands that enter untapped means that you will have faster playing.
Since creatures is the main focus, another fun card to consider is Reparations. I personally havent played it, but when your creatures or yourself are being targeted, you get to draw a card. Maybe you end up getting a Cyclonic Rift you can cast too, who knows.
Something else I noticed is not a very big removal package, even a few cards, like Counterspell or Stoic Rebuttal are great counters! Since its an artifact deck, you can also include cards with Affinity for Artifacts, or Metalcraft, such as Dispatch, Broodstar, Thoughtcast ect.
Another focus you could go is more of the ETB effects, so Flicker effects might also be really cool. Otherworldly Journey, Mistmeadow Witch, Turn to Mist, Conjurer's Closet, Ghostly Flicker, Brago, King Eternal ect can give you additional ETB triggers and even more things, not to mention a small way to protect your cards.
Another thing to note is there isn't alot of recusion. So if you are in a board wipe heavy meta, that means it'll be hard to keep cards on the table. Cheap recursion cards like Beacon of Unrest, Victimize, and what have you.
Some cheap "beat sticks", something to include to help you close out a game could be Darksteel Juggernaut, Sphinx of the Steel Wind, Sphinx Sovereign, Thopter Assembly, Steel Hellkite all provide a nice big guy to start hammering down on the opponent. There have been too many times where I will see a token strategy get shut down, and they don't have anything to help them to begin rebuilding.

Also, I personally don't like your veldlaken, but let them stay if you want. (As I said, I'd build pure myr).

Changes made yesterday all have to do with using a less expensive version of Demonic Tutor. The Revised version is actually the one I have and it's nearly $10 less than other versions of the card. All I needed to do was add the [3ED] in the card editor after it. It turns out that a lot of cards are also like this; using other versions are $1-2+ less.
I added back in the blue producing Signets: Azorius Signet using the Dissension[DIS] version and Dimir Signet using the Ravnica[RAV] version. I cut the Talismans for them. I added Ethersworn Canonist, thanks Flagellum for the suggestion. This was between Canonist or Phyrexian Metamorph and I chose Canonist because she has the ability to actually shut down or at least stall some decks, helping me to assemble a combo with Breya.
