Ok! Sweet build so far! Let me see if I can hell you out. I am a fan of the title by the way.
So Naturally, Feldon’s ability focuses on a few things. They are:
1) it triggers ETBs and graveyard abilties
2) it is a “tap” ability
3) and ARTIFACTS.
Keeping these three things in mind I would suggest the following, some of which may not suit your play-style, but alas! This is why they are suggestions!
Creatures like Inferno Titan , Godo, Bandit Warlord (only useful if you’re running equipments), Bloodfire Colossus , and Zealous Conscripts have value in entering or dying. The new Ilharg, the Raze-Boar may be of semi-interest to you even though he doesn’t have an ETB he is another tool that helps trigger ETBs like Feldon.
I think potentially the most key card you are missing is Sundial of the Infinite so you can keep the token copies that Feldon makes. Plus it’s an artifact you can try and recur since red can do that rather well. In regards to recursion I think you could mull over Goblin Welder and Scrap Mastery . They seen like they could work for you. Goblin Engineer from the soon to come out Modern horizons will be an auto-include for this deck too.
Anyway, this is not to say you dont already have some awesome stuff going on already! If you want my opinion on what to take out for some new stuff let me know. Id be happy to help.

Well hello there Inkmoth, nice deck you got here.
Have you been running into many exile effects? Riftsweeper could very well have a place here, plus it has value against food chain decks that put cast from exile creatures into exile with cheap tutors. Certainly a flex spot but I bet the new Sisay will spark another round of FC decks (I've been thinking about building one lol).
You should consider the usually laughable Sunscorched Desert . It acts as a second win condition with Crop Rotation loops if Shaman is offline or unavailable. Use the Mouth of Ronom loop with the desert to kill players.
I also have three spicy suggestions that go together, but they are hard to tutor in mono G and most likely don't fit. Rings of Brighthearth Sensei's Divining Top Voltaic Key . Rings can combo with Top as an outlet for infinite mana. Top can also generate infinite mana/draw with Paradox Engine and Voltaic Key . Rings lets you combo off with Deserted Temple and Cradle or Itlimoc or Nykthos, provided they produce high enough mana counts. Rings also combos off with Key + Thousand-Year Elixir + any big dork that can generate 5+ mana
Top has the benefit of allowing you to sauce on opponents from a zone they have a hard time hitting. It would allow let you up tutor density with Sylvan Tutor . Works well with Worldly Tutor and Noxious Revival , plus gives effective card advantage when using Fetchlands to shuffle away bad top 3.

If you are going modern, Felidar Guardian is not a Restoration Angel also, why not have Thousand-Year Elixir sac tokens created with kiki and blink your Prime Speaker Vannifar with Felidar Guardian if you are going for overkill? Lol :)

This looks really sweet! Zirilian is a general who I don’t think sees enough play. Crucible of Fire seems like it plays well with your dragons, and you might want to consider Magewright's Stone and Thousand-Year Elixir for extra activations. Dragon Tyrant is also sweet to cheat out, and sometimes just kills people. Can’t wait to see what you do with the deck!

Love this deck—and what matters most is if you have fun with it!
I’m not sure if I saw some of these in your maybeboard but I would definitely think about running them.
Mana Flare as cheap mana doubler, plus added politics to help keep you alive if you aren’t the threat.
Kill Switch could be a dope board control with Mycosynth Lattice as long as you can untap your own stuff still, so in that regard I would put in Unwinding Clock to handle that. If in budget for you, Paradox Engine . More untap utility: Magewright's Stone , Sword of the Paruns , Thousand-Year Elixir .
How has this played in your meta?
+1 for jank and the uniqueness

PIZZ_PAZZ I totally get the budget reasons!!! Glad that a few of those suggestions can help you. It’s funny cause I've been playing commander for almost 10 years now and I had no idea Thousand-Year Elixir jumped so much in price. It was a $1 rare for the longest time. I suppose this tells me Commander is becoming that much more popular.
I’m super pumped about the Seeker suggestion! Totally glad you can use that. If I think of anything else I’ll be sure to pop back in.

McToters a few of the cards you mentioned I'd already looked at and considered in the past but there are a few in there that I'll definitely have to consider so thanks for suggesting.
Another card that I don't think I will include is Unwinding Clock . as you said I don't have many artifacts I think most of the time it will just be a dead card in my hand. And even when I can use it, I don't think untapping 1 or 2 things for 4 mana is really worth it when I can untap everything with Seedborn Muse , or Quest for Renewal . I've also decided not to use Magewright's Stone , or Magewright's Stone because they're a little too slow.
However Thousand-Year Elixir is a gem of a card and I can't believe I never thought to put it in this deck. The untapping ability is decent, but the added on pseudo- Concordant Crossroads effects make it very good. The only problem is it's gotten a bit more pricey as of recent so I'll have to weigh it's costs to it's contributions.
The combos you mentioned are a little problematic for my purposes. Because my combos are able to be entirely fetched up by Yisan I don't see myself using these too much to be worth putting in the deck. That being said Seeker of Skybreak is absolutely another auto-include. Not only is it a combo piece fetchable by Yisan but enables combos to happen much faster. That's not even mentioning the fact that it's only 30¢! Of all the cards you recommended this is the one that my deck needs the most.
Anyways thanks for the suggestions I'm always looking for ways to make my deck better and having other people recommend cards is probably the best way.
