Going to take this idea and try a Simic version. Love this!

I love this deck and have enjoyed playing similar lately. Padeem and Saheeli's Artistry are especially nice cards that I tried for a little while, and although I prefer a quicker version of the deck those two will really help to go over the top. Have you played with Key to the City? Nothing so nice as unblockable 10/10's, and it's a 2-cost artifact that gives more card draw. Similarly, Prophetic Prism. Hard to say if Scry or straight card draw is better, but your version doesn't run a lot of card draw as is. Do you find that you have a hard time getting enough artifacts in play for Colossus with only 11 in the deck? I've been running 14, including 4 Hedron Archives, which aside from the clutch card draws is amazing for playing those high-cost cards like Padeem and Artistry without slowing down. I've also had some great success running Saheeli Rai, along with the Prisms to get her into play, as she can produce Colossus with Haste the same turn you play it, made unblockable with the Key, it's just pretty to watch.
One other suggestion, I was originally running 4 Engulfs in the main as well but found that the deck ran much more smoothly if I sideboarded most or all of them, since it does virtually nothing against quite a few popular decks (aetherworks, any control deck, etc).
Now I'm playing this as Izzet, check it out: Izzet Time for Artifacts? - 3-Time SS 4-0!

Wow! Thanks for all the feedback, Verado! I really like the idea of Saheeli Rai in the deck along with some red removal. Key to the City and Prophetic Prism are great suggestions! Thinking of even adding Combustible Gearhulk for extra spice. Thanks again!

Red removal works very well with this, aside from spot removal consider some bigger clears, especially Radiant Flames since it doesn't hurt your own guys, but Nahiri's Wrath is also awesome for removing bigger threats and you've got lots of high cmc cards to boost it. Might be worth throwing a few in the sideboard, one radiant flames will clear out almost everything an aggro player has, not to mention chump blockers.
