Tezzeret the Seeker Discussion

I think what this deck wants is some ways to make infinite mana. The one that would be best, in my mind is Dramatic Reversal + Isochron Scepter . You'll want more mana rocks, although I think you want more anyway, but with that combo, you can power out Blightsteel or proliferate out the table with Contagion Engine , Contagion Clasp , or Viral Drake . You'll want the typical Muddle the Mixture to grab the combo, and artifact tutors such as Whir of Invention , Fabricate , and Tezzeret the Seeker can get your Engine and Clasp, as well.
A cheaper alternative is the old Pauper Peregrine Drake combo. You use Ghostly Flicker , Illusionist's Stratagem , or Displace to blink Drake, Great Whale , or Palinchron with Mnemonic Wall , Archaeomancer , or Salvager of Secrets , returning the instant each time.
I'm also surprised not to see Corrupted Conscience in here. Love that card.
As for cuts, I'm not really sure what Helm of the Host is doing here. It's not your commander you want more of, it's infect creatures. For that kind of mana, you could just kick Rite of Replication . Not really sure what Telepathy is for. If anything, you don't want the table to know when the infect player is a danger. Borrowing 100,000 Arrows has always been a pet card of mine, but making the kind of mana you are, you want X spells. Blue Sun's Zenith , Open Into Wonder , and Pull from Tomorrow are you friends.
Since you're limited on infect creatures, you might want normal clone effects. Phantasmal Image is cheap. Gigantoplasm can copy an infect creature and one-shot people, Quicksilver Gargantuan to a lesser extent. Phyrexian Metamorph is flexible. Vizier of Many Faces has recursion. Stunt Double can surprise the table by speeding up the clock just before your turn. Fated Infatuation comes with card selection. Mirror of the Forebears survives board wipes. Cackling Counterpart , Stolen Identity , Quasiduplicate , and Saheeli's Artistry can all copy creatures multiple times.

Basilisk Collar , Gorgon's Head , Gorgon Flail or anything else to give Niv deathtouch. Draw a card, ping a creature, kill it, rinse/repeat. These are all cheap CMC equip and not expensive to buy either.
If you're going to have a low creature count with this commander, The Locust God is amazing. I'd make it a sideboard card that you are targeting to obtain.

Vault of Whispers , Ancient Den , Seat of the Synod would also be good since you have artifact tutors aplenty and can be cloned since they're artifacts. Tezzeret the Seeker would do well in here as well with one untap effect you can plop Mirror Gallery onto the battlefield. Mechanized Production is also very, very on theme.

Combos: Infinite Mana:
Krark-Clan Ironworks + Scrap Trawler + Myr Retriever + Sol Ring or Mana Vault or Grim Monolith or Mox Opal . Add Pyrite Spellbomb , Mind Stone , Solemn Simulacrum , Commander's Sphere , or Ichor Wellspring to draw your deck. Pyrite Spellbomb and Mycosynth Lattice on board or Mox Opal lets you do infinite damage with this loop too. Hangarback Walker in this loop makes infinite 1/1 tokens. Walking Ballista in this loop does infinite damage. Aetherflux Reservoir on board leads to infinite life (because the loop takes casting 3+ spells) and thus infinite damage.

Wipe Your Opponents:

For the good cards ... I'm not a regular Sydri pilot, but here's a penny for my thoughts on this fun commander. Tamiyo's Journal is a good beater that plops out artifacts/draw. Faerie Artisans / Thoughtcast / Thirst for Knowledge are really good for this deck, Dispatch / Stoic Rebuttal is always good for redundancy. March of the Machines is good in case your commander gets tree'd or stolen . Mechanized Production might be good for Phyrexian Metamorph / Master of Etherium /tokens from Sharding Sphinx / Smothering Tithe etc.
For the weaker cards ... Planar Cleansing could be replaced with Hour of Revelation . Profane Procession Flip/ Predator, Flagship could go because of its overall cost, and it doesn't do anything else over time or when it enters, and it doesn't fit the themes of the deck. Revel in Riches might be good with the amount of board wipes but you'll be targeted for it, it's an upkeep trigger (so people will have time to respond, and with sorceries). Treasure Map Flip is rather weak because it turns into a land so you can't abuse it like an artifact, and is 5 mana to eventually draw 3 or maybe 3+ cards. Treasure Mage does 'draw' and the best big artifact to abuse, but it's overall 9 mana unless you have Master Transmuter or something, and doesn't get any wincon that I can see. Ruthless Knave takes a lot of hoops to get through to draw or ramp, but a lot of my criticisms were at the treasure cards so you keep that theme then drawing more cards for no mana is good. Palladium Myr is not ramp, it's just sadness. Sphinx of the Steel Wind is expensive for a 7 turn clock on turn seven, but it's fun because it could fit your meta and is protected from the colors outside your color pie.
For win cons ... Aetherflux Reservoir / Staff of Nin / Caltrops are all all-star with this commander, and Tezzeret the Seeker could fetch caltrops/aetherflux but non paradox engine etc. If you're interested in a combo win, you could do Sword of the Meek / Thopter Foundry , or Sharuum the Hegemon / Phyrexian Metamorph and something to abuse the etb loop like Altar of the Brood / Genesis Chamber / Contraband Kingpin / Disciple of the Vault / Blood Artist / Marionette Master etc.

Step 1: Tezzeret -3 for Rings of Brighthearth
Step 2: Activate Aminatou's -1 targeting Tezzeret. It reenters with 4 loyalty and a new activation.
Step 3: -4 Tezzeret and copy the trigger with Rings to find Basalt Monolith and Goblin Cannon , activated Monolith and copy it to get 6 mana for 5, rinse and repeat to get infinite mana, then stack the triggers on Cannon in response to each other to get infinite damage on each opponent.
Step 4: Profit!

Of all those loops, the most valuable ones are infinite life loss, infinite card draw and infinite mill. The least valuable is infinite life gain (which is not worth running). If you're going to assemble an infinite loop, you should either be able to end the game then and there or end it next turn in the case of infinite tokens, which is generally better than infinite +1/+1 counters as it's harder to stop. And you will want to follow infinite creatures up with a Cyclonic Rift and forcing each player to discard their hand or something so they can't wrath to stop you.
It's also worth looking at some combos that don't use Felidar Guardian , there is a loop with Tezzeret the Seeker that SynergyBuild has put together. This way, your entire win condition is not hinging on one card which can be removed.
