Hey, nice start for a budget version.
Consider more one to four drop creatures who can be cast before Jor and who can create an artifact when they ETB? You want creatures on the battlefield before you play Jor to take advantage of attacking with the pump, but you also need three artifacts to get that pump. Creatures with double strike are good if metalcraft is active, but without it they're lackluster. Boros Keyrune is the right idea since it's an artifact first and then it can turn into a creature with double strike.
Pia/Kiran is very good budget creature to curve into Jor since it puts three creatures on the battlefield including two artifacts meaning you only need one other artifact to activate metalcraft. The other two artifact lands: Ancient Den and Great Furnace help a lot when trying to activate metalcraft. Mishra's Factory can turn into an artifact creature for one mana.
Smuggler's Copter is a powerful two drop flying Vehicle. It can be a repeatable source of draw and it's an artifact that turns into a artifact creature by crew 1 (tapping any other creature you control). Hammer of Purphoros gives Jor as well as all your other creatures haste and it can be a repeatable source of an artifact and a creature.
Goblin Welder is great with artifacts as repeatable reanimation since you can sac an artifact you control to reanimate any artifact in your graveyard. It's good with Myr Battlesphere as a way to reanimate it, sac it, have artifact fodder to keep reanimating it.
The manabase can use some budget improvements of dual lands.
- Command Tower
- Battlefield Forge
- Boros Garrison
- Opal Palace
- Temple of Triumph
- Ash Barrens
- Evolving Wilds
Good luck with your deck.

HARDsofty Awesome deck man. Got some suggestions; you said those Boros elite are in there for early blockers; unless you prefer their late game offensiveness, I'd maybe consider running Dryad Militant, Resolute Watchdog, Giant Killer, Dauntless Bodyguard, Skymarcher Aspirant or Alseid of Life's Bounty. Extra utility that'll protect other beaters/remove threats late game. Even Thraben Inspector, for that card draw.

You can probably afford to play a couple more two drops. Swiftblade Vindicator is a monster to deal with and Akroan Hoplite could become a threat with how wide your board state gets. I would also trade out one of your one drops for a couple copies of Thraben Inspector. It is not as aggressive and provides at least some card advantage. If you are able to recur it with Lurrus of the Dream-Den you could get some extra clues and triggers on Thalia's Lieutenant.

Hey, I like this humans version of Boros besides the lands from just looking at it. I run a similar deck that has a greater emphasis on artifacts called Revenge Of The Smith and I find that Thraben Inspector is a great human that can draw you a card if the game ever goes longer than anticipated. Also, if you lean a little more into the equipment theme, Weapons Trainer is an alternate human way to buff your team. Some more burn may be needed to beat opponents that try to wipe out your creatures, and Boros Charm is versatile for that purpose.

i used to play Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest in my Ghave, Guru of Spores deck, but i often found it to be a dead draw. mostly it is too high cmc to be worth it imo, and Good-Fortune Unicorn accomplishes the same purpose but for 3 cmc and on our own terms! would recommend recommend removing him for Dockside Extortionist :)
Burnished Hart is inefficient turn 4 ramp. either put a 2 cmc ramp option or try fittimg Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer here. i like the classic Prismatic Lens and Wayfarer's Bauble for my 5-color deck :)
finally i would remove Thraben Inspector. quite an underwhelming card in commander game.
i love this deck idea! i have always wanted to try a mass alt-wincon theme deck, and i like the flavor of this one much!

Hey Haydenc553. The first thing I would so is sub in a better removal piece like Banishing Light or Oblivion Ring for Smite. I was trying to stay on flavor but Smite's just not that good a card. If you're going to play Thalia's Lieutenant, you want to maximize the number of humans, so sub Thraben Inspector for Cenn's Tactician and Preeminent Captain for Aerial Responder (at least not decreasing humans there). You can put in three Thalia's for a Ballyrush Banneret and two Veteran Armorsmith. That would be initial thought at least - you might need to test it out a bit.
