Thopter Spy Network

Whenever one or more artifact creatures you control deals combat damage to a player, draw a card.

I know The Professor has some videos up. On the road so I can't link them now.
Also posting because interesting thread is interesting.
What I can say is this: I generally go for 34 - 38 lands depending on curve, and I always do 8x stones.
- Sol Ring
- Thought Vessel
- Arcane Signet
- Fellwar Stone
The next three depend on how many colors I run. If I am running a Guild deck, such as Rakdos, I'll do;
- Rakdos Signet
- Commander's Sphere
If I am running a Shard it Wedge, like Esper, I'll do;
- Orzhov Signet
- Dimir Signet
- Azorius Signet
I also try to get 5 - 7 draw engines. I want permanents that draw on triggers, such as Garruk's Packleader and Greed . I prefer repeatability over one-time-use like Harmonize . Another great overlooked one is Thopter Spy Network . I've seen many players forget about the second half, myself included.
I try to avoid cards that benefit my opponent at all costs, such as Anvil of Bogardan , but that's just my style. Ultimately this is a game to be won. I try to limit my aid to others as much as possible, so that politics are stronger when needed.
This means I have accounted for 53 - 61 cards accounted for in all decks. Minus the Commander, this leaves 46 - 38 cards left over to find synergy and make combos with.
But that's just how I play.

Alassion thank you for your suggestions! Unfortunately some of those don't feel like a good incluse in this version of the deck since I am running mainly enchantments and not artifacts. Mirrodin Besieged and Sai, Master Thopterist would require me to run more artifacts than what I am doing now, Thopter Foundry + Sword of the Meek would work I give you that but they are artifacts and therefore go against my enchantment theme. Ashnod's Altar and Thopter Spy Network are cards that I could prob include in the deck, I have to think on it. Thopther Spy Network is kinda like more CMC expensive version of Blitterblossom but with the possible inclusion of card draw.

I play a vehicles deck as well but mine has a stronger emphasis on bonuses from crewing. Creatures like Hateflayer and King Macar, the Gold-Cursed might be worthy of your consideration. Also Aethershield Artificer , Veteran Motorist , and Weldfast Engineer all give a vehicle or two a little boost. Sai, Master Thopterist , Pia Nalaar , Efficient Construction , and Thopter Spy Network are all decent servo/thopter creators; and Master Trinketeer pumps all those creations for better crewing! Then add in Anointed Procession , Parallel Lives and/or ! Doubling Season ! for even more tokens. Start Your Engines and Aerial Modification are good inclusions as well. Some cards that we both need to put in our decks are Padeem, Consul of Innovation , Aeronaut Admiral and Built to Smash . Atraxa, Praetors' Voice and Breya, Etherium Shaper would be great in your deck! Mirrorworks ? Mirage Mirror ?

If you're looking to boost your combo, Tezzeret the Seeker may be able to assist you in getting the cards you're looking for. If you want to make this a competitive deck mainly featuring thopters, Sai, Master Thopterist , Pia Nalaar and Pia and Kiran Nalaar all give you thopters (and things to do with those thopters). You may also consider Thopter Assembly and Thopter Spy Network . And of course Master of Etherium goes well in any artifact deck, particularly one that gets lots of artifacts out.
For lands, Temple of Epiphany gets you some scrying, which is nice whether you're searching for that combo or not.

Some more noncreature spells that get you creatures you can use with the Staff: Abstruse Interference , Efficient Construction , Geist Snatch , Grip of Phyresis , Metallurgic Summonings , Orochi Hatchery , Rise from the Tides , Skywise Teachings , and Thopter Spy Network .
Depending on the decks in your pod, certain suggestions may be better than others.
