I do quite like Cephalid Inkshrouder also. That being said, I already have a LOT of spell and blocker dodge between AEtherling, Morphling and Torchling, so I'm keeping it one the maybeboard. I feel like if I just want creature creation and not the general utility Trading Post offers, Bloodline Keeper Flip is the choice. Daretti, Ingenious Iconoclast, Thopter Assembly and Thopter Spy Network are all reliable token generations. Considering the amount of loot spells this deck runs, From Under the Floorboards seems like a nice option. Potentially Ghoulcaller Gisa.

While I realize it's a bit of a cute interaction, I personally use Trading Post for my Razaketh sac fodder. I'd also like to stress how powerful Cephalid Inkshrouder actually is. Like if you're trying to win via combat damage, why settle for paying mana when you can discard a card and give Mairsil shroud and unblockable in one go? I think it's way too underrated in this strategy.

I LOVE YOUR DECK!! +1 from me!
Thoughts on Trading Post and Mirage Mirror? I use the post to stop my artifacts from getting exiled, make tokens to block with and/or sacrifice the token for artifact recursion. Lastly the token can be used for a Contamination lock. Mirage mirror is just CRAZY versatility which I think can serve this deck quite well.
What is your plan to deal with artifacts and enchantments? From a glance, all I see if Karn. I usually find All Is Dust, Nevinyrral's Disk, Ugin, the Spirit Dragon, and Oblivion Stone can help with this (albeit at risk of getting rid of your stuff as well).
What are your thoughts of Rings of Brighthearth for the deck? I don't know about your meta's rules for infinite combos, but you can get infinite black mana with Coffers + Urborg + Deserted temple + A couple more lands + Rings.
Also if you are running the leyline you might want to run Helm of Obedience if you like destroying people's will to play magic.

Here are a few other things I would take out, just at a glance:Tree of Perdition - > Arcanis the OmnipotentThe Tree is cute, but it's really not going to do anything in terms of winning you the game. It might kill one opponent once every other game, but that's the most use you're going to get out of it. Arcanis is great no matter what he's doing. He can be a target in hand or in grave for your commander, or getting you more targets by letting you draw a crap ton of cards.
Everflowing Chalice - > FireballIf you exile the Chalice with Mairsil, you don't get to pay for the multikicker, because Wizards hates you. Instead, I'd run Fireball so I have somewhere to dump infinite mana and win the game.
Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver - > Gilded LotusYou can't hit Ashiok with Mairsil, and Ashiok's abilities specify opponent, so they're basically a Dimir Value Card. In a deck that wants to be playing combos, what that really means is that you have a filler card. You mentioned to me that you wanted to get infinite mana with Mairsil, Deadeye, and Gilded Lotus because that's technically possible here so long as you have a creature to pair the soulbond with. However, Gilded Lotus isn't actually on your list, so the filler spot is filled.
Painful Quandary - > Peregrine DrakePainful Quandary is... interesting. Personally, I love it. It brings me back. I used to have a 60-card deck that ran Waste Not, Painful Quandary, Megrim, and Liliana's Caress, and it was hella busted. However, like the Planeswalkers, it really feels like a filler card, and you ain't got time for that. Peregrine Drake gets you infinite mana with Deadeye.
Grindstone - > Great WhaleThis one I'm back and forth on. If you really like Grindstone, keep it and cut Palinchron instead. Both the Pali and Great Whale get you infinite mana with Deadeye, but one is significantly cheaper money-wise. The reason I'm not sure you should play Grindstone is that in a three color deck, the likelihood you're ever going to hit two cards of the same color in a row is very, very small. Each individual card in the 99 has a 1/4 chance of being any given color or colorless. If they're both lands or both artifacts, since Grindstone says that the cards have to share a color, then it doesn't count. The card is more money than it's worth for you, so I think you would rather play Great Whale and at least increase your shot at hitting infinite mana so you can do fun shenanigans.
If you're wanting to go hard combo, I would also cut Mind Funeral and Mind Grind for more tutor spells/effects. Increasing Ambition, Rune-Scarred Demon, Diabolic Tutor all come to mind. Another infinite combo that you can get is Gravecrawler + Mikaeus, the Unhallowed + Phyrexian Altar but that's a bit more money (about $65 total).
Okay, I'm gonna wrap this up because TappedOut is making my computer lag. Short version: this is a cool idea but I think it needs a little tuning.

I think Feldon of the Third Path might be just the right form of "recursion" that this deck needs. I always had a hard time justifying something like Elixir of Immortality because it was too much of a hard reset late game when I really need selective recursion. Trading Post was too slow and expensive. It only got worse from there.
Being able to bring back a creature, even for a single turn, could be the difference between winning or losing a game in this deck. Getting Goblin King, Urabrask the Hidden, or Krenko, Mob Boss back into play could be invaluable.
Not sure what to cut for it, but definitely going to figure out how to fit him in.

Cascading Cataracts Can definitely help. For retrieval of artifacts, Trading Post. Thats just one card for artifact retrieval, however.

A few suggestions you may find useful:
Executioner's Capsule seems unassuming but I've had VERY good experiences with it in past games.
Trading Post does everything we want. Provides bodies, draws cards, recurs artifacts. Great for keeping the stax engine going.
Inventors' Fair is very easy to turn on for the lifegain since we play so many artifacts and can tutor any of our stax goodies.
Guardian Beast might be of interest to you to protect your important artifacts from pesky spells.
You're welcome to take a look at my list if you need more ideas. Mine is less creature focused than yours but we have pretty similar game plans. Only Perfection is Acceptable
Good to see another Glissa player!

hello IlGualeI like to make an plan B if TfT dont work ... i think i a little W splash in my case for cards like Refurbish is good to have acess for this ... Trading Post in this case seens good for many interaction in deck i need to test.
The problem with Madcap Experiment in this case, how we need other cheaper artifacts to make TfT the risk to burn ourself and flip some of this seens not worth, i see the biggest target for madcap is Platinum Emperion .. all this IMO.
