Godo, Bandit Warlord is an excellent way to tutor for your equipment, and it can go infinite with Helm of the Host if Aurelia isn't on the board

You should really try adding more draw sources! If you can't afford a Wheel of Fortune, then Reforge the Soul and Magus of the Wheel are great budget options, and lots of other Aurelia players run Mask of Memory if they can't afford a Sword of Fire and Ice

Completed, but still contemplating Sword of Fire and Ice.

Sword of Fire and Ice would help to swing through blue and red fliers - as well as protect from blue bounce and red destruction, so perhaps that is worth adding.

Considering a single copy of Batterskull costs well over the cost of the entire deck, Sword of Fire and Ice costing about 4x the cost of the entire deck, Helm of the Host, Blackblade Reforged, and Deathrender costing more than any individual card in the list, I think I will pass.

Apologies, I don't own this deck IRL, it is to show that others can make a really budget deck that functions well.

Stormfront Riders also costs more in game than any card I run, but It is really cool!

6ixer, 18 lands wasn't really working out to get the starting hands I needed, but given that I have things like Steelshaper's Gift, Stoneforge Acolyte, and even Stonehewer Giant to help me search for equipment and put it into my hand, I decided to get rid of one Sword of Fire and Ice and adding back a land.

Personally I would put some more equipments to put more variety on that front. Maby 2-2, or even 1-1-1-1

I'm thinking equipments like Batterskull, Blackblade Reforged, Deathrender can trigger some hilarious combo-ing, same goes for Helm of the Host but it might be a bit underrated for the rest, Sword of Fire and Ice and Worldslayer. I'm not what the prices of all these are tho, but some might stretch the 15 bucks more than a bit...

For the rest, I really like what you've done with the deck. It's simple, effecient, and covers almost every base more than once.

Leonin Abunas is the gold standard of artifact protection. It's much better than Indomitable Archangel: hexproof instead of shroud, and doesn't require metalcraft.

Batterskull is the most powerful living weapon.

Blackblade Reforged offers a P/T boost that scales with the game and can enable Balan to one-shot.

Hammer of Nazahn provides indestructible and auto-equipping.

Inquisitor's Flail stacks with Balan's double strike.

Sword of Fire and Ice is the best Mirran Sword and is worth acquiring a copy. P/T boost, hard card draw, damage, and protections can't be beat.

Sword of the Animist is a tutorable land ramp engine.

Expedition Map tutors for one of your utility lands.

Austere Command and Cleansing Nova are excellent options for sweepers. Using artifact sweepers in an Equipment deck may seem counterproductive, but it's necessary to keep your opponents' own artifact shenanigans in check. Spot removal can only do so much against multiple players.

Remember the Fallen is a great recursion spell.

Buried Ruin is artifact recursion that only takes up a land slot.

Kor Haven is an effective threat deterrent.

Mikokoro, Center of the Sea is a cheap card draw engine.

You need more draw! Sword of Fire and Ice alone isn't gonna cut it! Reforge the Soul, Magus of the Wheel, Puresteel Paladin, Sram, Senior Edificer, and Howling Mine are all excellent budget options if you can't afford a Wheel of Fortune

If you can't afford a Teferi's Protection, I'd recommend Leave / Chance and Legion's Initiative because Wrath effects are gonna be your worst enemy
