Storm the Vault
Whenever one or more creatures you control deal combat damage to a player, create a colorless Treasure artifact token with "T, Sacrifice this artifact: Add one mana of any color to your mana pool."
At the beginning of your end step, if you control five or more artifacts, transform Storm the Vault.

Storm the Vault Discussion

Agent of Erebos is repeatable ETB grave hate - I have a lot of graveyard recursion in my meta, and the ability to repeatedly exile the graveyard of the multiple Muldrotha, Meren, and Tasigur decks I face prompted the addition.
Cephalid Constable lets me bounce multiple permanents - as he gets bigger, he bounces more stuff. Grixis has trouble with enchantments specifically. Early on, he can be absolutely crippling, because you can bounce lands. And as a Wizard, it's easy to give him a counter.
Patron of the Vein is not there for Vampire synergy. He's unconditional creature removal on an ETB, he triggers an exile so I get grave hate, and when his exile trigger resolves he puts a +1/+1 counter on himself. This means he takes care of his own counter as long as I'm getting rid of creatures. Any other vampires who get counters are just bonus, and not at all required. I can just loop sacrificing him and letting him ETB again every turn.
Dross Harvester was mentioned in a Reddit thread as an effective way to get some life back when you dip too low. I agree that it should be cut - I can always test it later if I find myself getting too low on life.
Thanks for the input!

Also you only have 4 vampires, so I don't think Patron of the Vein is really worthwhile.

Tawnos, Urza's Apprentice feels slow/ like it doesnt have many great targets
Mindslaver makes the table target me more than usual and only kinda deals with one opponent since I don't think I have an infinite recursion unless I have infinite mana and then I can usually win in other ways
Padeem, Consul of Innovation seems too conditional for one card per turn
Paradox Engine feels like a win more card

Cards Missing From Initial Build
Goblin Welder Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain Thopter Engineer Thopter Squadron Blade of Selves Coldsteel Heart Commander's Sphere Retrofitter Foundry Vedalken Orrery Treasure Map Flip Fire Diamond Sky Diamond Thirst for Knowledge Gamble
More Removal/Wipes Blasphemous Act - Staple Release the Gremlins - Gives more tokens Rapid Hybridization, Pongify - Staples and can give yourself a 3/3 token Meteor Golem - High CMC, but can destroy Enchantments which is a huge weakness of the deck.
Master Transmuter - Cheats out your big artifacts, but kind expensive.
Curse of Opulence - A weird staple for this deck, but I think you can figure out why.
Think about how fast you can make tokens. Does it make Purphoros, God of the Forge worth it?
Check through what effects require set up and make sure you don't have too many compared to stand alone cards. Even though Krark-Clan Ironworks does ramp, I wouldn't count it as ramp because it requires set up. Same goes for Storm the Vault Flip (But you have 36 actual lands which is totally fine)
Gamble, Mystical Tutor, Fabricate, maybe Hoarding Dragon (?) - Combos in decks are strong and fun, but really hard to pull of without a descent amount of tutors and/or redundancy. Ignoring combos, each tutor can search out a key cards.
Dramatic Reversal - I don't think you have enough mana rock/dorks to get to infinite mana, and without that it's kind of a waste of a card.
These combos in general don't really synergize with the goal of the deck (infinite mana more than infinite turns) like an infinite token combo would. I think there is a combo with Scrap Trawler and Hangarback Walker that I vaguely remember that you might want to try to find.
Everflowing Chalice - I always go colored mana over colorless if it costs the same, even if artifacts don't need it. It has potential to ramp you a bit more late game, but you usually don't need the ramp at that point.
Inspired Sphinx - 6 mana for a draw 3, maybe 4, and a hefty costed mana sink doesn't seem worth it to me.
Mycosynth Lattice - I might be missing something, but it seems a little narrow sited. It works a little with Darksteel Forge and Combos well with Hellkite Tyrant, but if the deck makes a bunch of tokens you don't need it to win with the Hellkite.
Cut Phyrexia's Core -Negligible effect unless you have a consistent way to abuse LTB triggers.
Caldera Lake - There are far better lands.
Swiftwater Cliffs - Its fine if you want to stay budget.
Reliquary Tower - I don't see a way for you to draw a bunch of cards and overflow your hand, so this isn't really needed.
Scalding Tarn - Obvious include if you want to spend the money.
Myriad Landscape is a 2 land fetch and taps for mana.
Overall, good base. It has potential to go from 0 - 100 and kill everyone out of nowhere.

Could also consider treasure token generators to build up your artifacts and get your colour fixing, how about Storm the Vault
