Hi! First of all, I dig the concept of the deck, it seems quite cool to play. That being said, I agree with this deck it seems like is borderline cEDH or maybe "far from Top Tier cEDH" and that might limit the "home" of the deck. I'm lucky enough to have that kind of meta, and if that's your case, bingo!
Otherwise, one think I did is share about 20 cards between a Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain Storm Stax cEDH deck and a Sydri, Galvanic Genius battlecruiser deck (much more casual). That way I'm playing artifacts no matter what, but in a complete different fashion!
Anyway, I wish you all the fun of brewing! :D

Is this going to be a deck that aims to use these cards you exile or just mill them out for the win condition?
Without a doubt cards like Codex Shredder and Pyxis of Pandemonium come to mind when its a direct mill to exile effect. However, depending how big your budget can be, you can run something simple like Muddle the Mixture to transmute for Rest in Peace to turn ordinary mill cards such as Glimpse the Unthinkable and Mind Grind and Rest in Peace will then exile them. The more expensive side of things you could play Enlightened Tutor to hit your Rest in Piece as well as Helm of Obedience. Helm of Obedience Rest in Peace is an infinite mill loop for one player at a time...
Starting with a typical U/B mill shell like say, Phenax, God of Deception and using staple cards from there to then encorperate that into an Esper shell.
As far as a Commander goes, something like Sharuum the Hegemon to grab back Altar of the Brood and Mindcrank would not be a terrible option as well. I can see Sydri, Galvanic Genius being a respectable option too! Needless to say, Esper has MANY MANY options to pull from in terms of combo, strategy and cardpool.
Sincerely hope this helped!

I'm thinking of pulling an old Sydri, Galvanic Genius tiny leaders deck and building a Hanna, Ship's Navigator EDH deck. As always I'm a budget boy. Luckily I've got a Isochron Scepter and a Dramatic Reversal (so a Capsize seems a must and it's a ship too). I like the idea of keeping with a ship/sailing theme, so is there a cheap way of infinite (or at the least plenty) untapping Mogg Cannon to load creatures in and fire them at my opponents? Are there other cards that can do other similiar shenanigans? Would Timestream Navigator have a place in this deck?
Also is filling the deck with Myrs for combos and an army of tokens viable in a toned deck level playgroup? Mainly because they're cheap, sort of adorable and I like an army of robots or something similar idea. Cheers!
TL;DR What would you put in a Hanna deck on a budget keeping with a vague ship/sailing theme and/or with a sub tribal theme of some kind?

I am Corbeau and just started to put my decks on here. I play casually with a nice playgroup. We don't play very competetive and love combo decks. I am usually the person with nearly no removal because I always think that if it doesn't help my strategy it isn't a card for my deck and I want the others to have fun, too. Also I feel restricted in my creativity when I think about the meta or so. So quite often I am in a race to get my deck going and keep my stuff because others don't hesitate do remove everything on my side. I love weird and janky deck strategies. The decks I have at the moment are the ones I play and the one that survived all the building of decks. Very often it is more brewing than playing because we don't get together that often and the EDH community in my city is very competetive. I prefer an environment in which people have fun and don't flame each other all the time.
My Decks at the Moment:
EDH: Alesha, Who Smiles at Death (Aristrocrats) Prime Speaker Zegana (Draw Combo) Prime Speaker Vannifar (Podless Pod) Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons (-1/-1 Counters) Atraxa, Praetors' Voice (Any Counters] Kess, Dissident Mage (Spellslinger) Ghave, Guru of Spores (+1/+1 Counters) Kambal, Consul of Allocation (Lifedrain Prison) Omnath, Locus of Rage (Landfall/Elemental) Daxos the Returned (Enchantress)
Former Decks (I hope I remember all):
EDH: + Atraxa, Praetors' Voice (All cards with counters) Sun Quan, Lord of Wu (Milling) + The Scarab God (Milling) + Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive (Only power 1 or less/Tokens) Talrand, Sky Summoner (Spellslinger) Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet (gravepact) Kozilek, the Great Distortion (Eldrazi) Sidisi, Brood Tyrant (Milling) Sidisi, Brood Tyrant (Reanimator) Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle (Historic/Reanimator) Nin, the Pain Artist (Artifacts) Nin, the Pain Artist (Milling) Odric, Lunarch Marshal (White Weenie) + Masako the Humorless (Historic/ Throne of the God-Pharaoh ) Padeem, Consul of Innovation (Artifacts) + Kiku, Night's Flower ( Kiku's Shadow / Ragged Veins ) Grenzo, Havoc Raiser (Spellsnatching) Sydri, Galvanic Genius (Beautiful Art/Control) Tatyova, Benthic Druid (Beautiful Art/Copy/Draw/Token) Karlov of the Ghost Council (Lifedrain) Obzedat, Ghost Council (Lifedrain) + Obzedat, Ghost Council (Flicker/Token) Akiri, Line-Slinger / Ludevic, Necro-Alchemist (Artifacts/Non-Voltron)
Sadly many of my decks didn't work because of the meta and power level in my playgroup but some were so much fun to play. Favorites marked with + at the front.
I will try to upload the decklists of my current decks. If you have questions about any of the former decks or anything just ask.

In order to have multiple copies of helm of the host, you need 3 pieces:
Helm of the Host : Simple. There is only 1 card that suit this role.
A "turn an artifact into creature" card. There are tons of these in different colors, but most are blue:
- Animate Artifact
- Ensoul Artifact
- Karn, Silver Golem
- Karn, the Great Creator
- Karn's Touch
- Lifecraft Awakening
- Skilled Animator
- Sydri, Galvanic Genius
- Tezzeret the Schemer
- Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas
- Tezzeret's Touch
- Xenic Poltergeist
An "except is not legendary"/"maintain name" clone:
There are some cards that suits the role 2, but don't let you equip the clone. For example: March of the Machines
Conclussion: It's not easy to get it, but possible. It get's lot easier when you add a 4th role as Mirror Gallery letting any clone be of use.
