Tezzeret the Seeker Discussion

Your mana base seems fine. You have decent mana rocks for what you currently have in deck. Have you considered Tezzeret the Seeker , Tezzeret the Schemer, Tezzeret, Master of Metal, or Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas? It works flavor wise, but I may suggest adding a few more mana rocks if you do. Also, since I see you like bolas, how about Leonin Bola? Lol

What about things like Faerie Conclave for a land that can become creatures? Tezzeret the Seeker would let you use your artifacts as creatures too for milling. Tezzeret's Touch could be very useful too.

Just running around and asking people to look at your deck by posting on their deck without adding any constructive feedback tends to rub people the wrong way. Just forewarning you for the future.
Your deck is significantly different than the deck of mine you commented on. Luckily, I have played around with Tezzerator. I have not ever brought Sultai Tezzerator to an event, but I have dabbled with it. There are a couple different ways to play it.
Glissa, the Traitor Midraneg. She can be pretty insane with Executioner's Capsule and can generate a lot of value. She also walls off many mid range threats that you might run up against in Tasigur, the Golden Fang, Siege Rhino, Thought-Knot Seer, and Reality Smasher. The downside is that she cannot be fetched or dug for with many of the spells that Tezzerator normally plays (Ancient Stirrings, Glint-Nest Crane, Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas, Tezzeret the Seeker ). To circumvent this, it might be wise to run a more creature heavy shell and use some Traverse the Ulvenwald. Glint-Nest Crane, Vault Skirge, Scrapheap Scrounger, Treasure Mage, Trinket Mage, Snapcaster Mage, Spellskite, Wurmcoil Engine, and Hangarback Walker could all be good additions for a more creature heavy mid range shell with the option of a combo finish. Thirst for Knowledge is great in these shells.
Midrange without Glissa, the Traitor. I feel this is where you list is right now. Not saying that its a bad thing. Its is fine strategy. The traditional UB Tezzerator lists tend to be more combo-focused (which I will dive into in a second), but green gives you a lot of really solid control spells to help grind out a game. I think you have a slight problem though with your shell as it stands. You have about the amount of control as a midrange deck, but no real bombs aside from your combo. This makes you fairly dependent on lucky draws, landing an Ensnaring Bridge and dumping your hand, and/or unlucky draws for your opponent. I played an Esper list a few weeks ago, and I circumvented this by having creatures to help wall off the early game in Spellskite, Hangarback Walker, Vault Skirge, and Glint-Nest Crane while I dug for an Ensnaring Bridge (I ran 3 mainboard) so I can then safely just stall until I land my combo or ult Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas for a win. Thirst for Knowledge is also excellent in these shells.
This one feels weird, but Tezzerator can actually play a bit more aggro if you want it to. I am not sure if Sultai are the best colors for this (Grixis might be best). But Vault Skirges, Darksteel Citadels, and Spellskites with Ensoul Artifact can get scary pretty quick. The upside to Sultai for this plan would be marvelous control suite you can pack that remove things that are in your creatures' way.
Combo/Control. This is what most traditional U/B lists are doing right now. The most common strategy revolves around Whir of Invention and the silly interactions it can have with Pentad Prism. See, Whir of Invention taps artifacts to reduce it's cost and Pentad Prism does not have to tap to give you mana. You can also remove both of Pentad Prism's counters in the same turn. So a single Pentad Prism can essentially tap for 3 mana when trying to play a Whir of Invention. This allows for some pretty explosive starts where you can land an Ensnaring Bridge on turn 2 with only 1 or 2 cards in hand. Ensnaring Bridge is key in these decks as a wall to stall your opponent until you can tutor for your combo. This is where I feel you might want to direct your deck as it fells well with the idea of having no actual creatures and thus blanking your opponent's removal. The straight UB decks often struggle in game 2 as they have difficulty getting rid of Stony Silence. They often try to get around this by playing a Breeding Pool in the main and some Abrupt Decays in the side. But since you mana base will be much more geared to making sure you hit that green mana, you would be able to more reliably get that Stony Silence off the table.
What I am looking to do here for you is to give you a fair list of the sub-archetypes within Tezzerator. If you give me more of an idea of which direction you want to go, I can give much more tailored advice!

Laboratory Maniac is a must to finish off the Skullclamp + Ashnod's combo. I also highly suggest Tezzeret the Seeker for his ability to come down and instantly fetch Skullclamp, Ashnod's, and Puzzle Box.

I would swap out the Pia's Revolution and the Izzet Charms for a full playset of Serum Visions. You're in blue in modern, these are a necessity for fixing draws. I would also drop the favorable winds to round out the Chief of the Foundrys. You may want to eventually upgrade him into a play set of Master of Etherium at some point. I would also bump up Thopter Engineer to a full playset, and reduce your number of 4-drops. While Padeem does protect your thopters, your best permanents are creatures (Lords) and an enchantment, so I don't think she does as much as you think she does. If your thopters are dying, it'll often be via mass boardwipe such as Supreme Verdict. I would switch out her for Pia Nalaar, who has better combat abilities and is cheaper. I think the only 4 drops you should keep are full playset of Spy network and 3 of Pia and Kiran. You may also want to add a second Tezzeret the Seeker for consistency. You can also gradually upgrade the landbase with time, although I would either recommend Darksteel Citadel for artifact synergies or Inventors' Fair for stabilizing. Your sideboard is also up to you, but you can invest into some control pieces (Anger of the Gods, Vapor Snag) if you are getting overwhelmed. This is also where I'd put Whirler Rogue in match ups where they have lots of fliers too. I absolutely love this archetype, so these are my thoughts!

that being said, I love the flavor of this deck! +1
I would use Saheeli Rai instead of Tezzeret the Seeker . Her ult is a better dig IMO, she gets out sooner and you can thin the top of your deck for the Precursor Golem while pinging your opponent. Plus you get another copy mechanic.
Since you are rolling with the token theme and from simple testing, you can get a fair amount. Maybe add 1 or 2 Westvale Abbey just as a back up wincon.

I see the biggest problem in the mana costs of the locust god. That's 6 mana and it won't stay in play long. Of course, you can play it again for 6 mana but you will have to play this thing and go into any sort of combo in the same turn, which requires even more mana.
You should think about how you can even survive so long and that's the deck then. If this card works at all it's probably in a shell with 20 or more counterspells ranging from 0 to a Maximum of 2 or 3 mana and a shitoad of mana artifacts (maybe with Paradoxical Outcome). I would not rely on the creatures alone though because there are numerous methods to disable these tokens or prevent them from attacking or dealing damage. Something like Impact Tremors or Purphoros, God of the Forge would help.
Phyrexian Altar and Ashnod's Altar would make a three card combo with Skullclamp and the locust god. Tezzeret the Seeker , Trinket Mage, Fabricate, Trophy Mage, Intuition, Long-Term Plans, Transmute Artifact and Academy Ruins are must plays then. You'll need every GOOD tutor and there aren't too many in these colours. Of course my suggestions are not a complete list but you have to keep mana efficiency in mind.

I'm not sure if you're aware of it, but Everflowing Chalice with 4 counters, The Chain Veil and Tezzeret the Seeker 's +1 ability form an infinite combo that lets you use your Planeswalkers abilities endlessly.
Also, the new green/red planeswalker Samut, the Tested from the soon to be released standard set with that combo will let you jank your entire deck onto the board in one turn if played correctly.
To really stuff up your creature-heavy opponents, you can use cards like Humility Crawlspace Sphere of Safety Propaganda Ghostly Prison Sudden Spoiling. While I know you don't want to use creatures, these ones may convince you to make an exception. Silent Arbiter and Peacekeeper.
Depending on how far you want to go into fogging, Illusionist's Gambit and Chronomantic Escape may be of interest to you. Illusionist's Gambit is also doubly hilarious if some smug timmy player tries to run his huge board into you and instead gets forced to redirect his attack into someone else who wipes his board clean.
