Legendary Creature — Human Artificer
: Target artifact creature's controller sacrifices it. That player may search their library for a noncreature artifact card, put it onto the battlefield, then shuffle their library.

Ok hear me out. Pull out all the legendaries, then add in Arcum Dagsson. Also add Jegantha, the Wellspring as your companion. The rework to companions (having to pay 3 to put from command zone to hand) means that while Jodah is out, when you cast Jegantha, you will always get Arcum. Arcum can sac an artifact mana dork (e.g. Ornithopter of Paradise, Bronze Walrus, Scuttlemutt, Opaline Unicorn, etc. there are many of them) to get Door to Nothingness.
Thanks to Jegantha's ability, you will reliably be ready to use the Door as soon as it touches the board, and since it came in via Arcum's ability the Door can't be countered. You can also use Arcum to fetch artifacts that copy the Door/Door ability (like Sculpting Steel, Rings of Brighthearth) or artifacts that return the Door from grave to hand (e.g. Protomatter Powder, Codex Shredder)).
The other slots I would fill with cheap ramp effects like Birds of Paradise and all the available mana-producing artifact creatures. Maybe also cheap haste effects like Mass Hysteria, Concordant Crossroads, Lightning Greaves, Crashing Drawbridge, etc. so you can use Jegantha and Arcum immediately. You wouldn't really need to worry about interaction because you could keep the Door unused until the opp's end step before your turn and use it to threaten death of whomever tries to disrupt your setup in the meantime. For example if an opponent casts Cyclonic Rift, just respond by activating the Door to get that fool out da game thereby fizzling the Rift.

Triton thanks for the vote and suggestions:)
Rise and Shine looks very good, I’d missed that one!
The other suggestions I did / would consider, but I’ll give you my reasons for why they aren’t in the build.
Riddlesmith doesn’t actually draw as many cards as the Koi, as it triggers on cast where as Kointriggers on ETB, so the koi triggers off Mishra’s tokens. I also found there to be enough draw in the Artifact triggers.
However, Skullclamp could actually go in as a replacement, I have found that I’m often not even casting Koi in the play tests, I’ve had turns with 2 coveted jewel triggers and drawn 6 on turn 6, and clamp would benefit from the death of the token too.
And finally Ruthless Technomancer was considered for a while but I realised I’m not running enough artifacts I want to sacrifice and not making mass tokens to benefit from his ability, at first I did lean into treasures but as the build progressed realised it was a more efficient to not have the treasure production and have more value with Mishra if that makes sense?

In case it wasn't clear from legendofa's response, spells and abilities only target in MtG if they specifically use the word "target". Otherwise it is an untargeted effect.
There are a limited number of targeted sacrifice effects. Most are abilities of creatures (Arcum Dagsson, Ashling, the Extinguisher, etc.) but there is Barrin's Spite as well, so it is possible at some point that there will be something that synergizes with Feather, the Redeemed.

Lonis, Cryptozoologist, kci, Masterful Replication and Academy Manufactor mostly are the clue payoffs. Rise and Shine and Tezzeret, Betrayer of Flesh are stuff I'm considered but need to make cuts somewhere. I do end up cracking them manually time to time.
As for recommendations: Arcum Dagsson is great. You sac a golem token, grab closet and just have an engine to get whatever you want. Junk Winder is great too. Academy Manufactor would get alot of value!
Leaning into the blink/token aspect, I have stuff that wouldn't really work, but feel free to skim through it. I'm doing a small rework leaning since it's been a while since I updated the deck and alot of good stuff has come out recently, so im in the process of making cuts atm, but you can get an idea the decks goal! Its came a long way from it's original conception, getting golems to be strong in edh isnt all that easy as I'm sure you've noticed, haha.

I keep coming back to this list for more hints to improve my list. Marton Stromgald?? That's a card? I keep learning about all these obscure old cards lately like Fervent Charge or Arcum Dagsson (for my Urza list)

Nice deck. I've found two errors in the description:
- Mystic Forge does not give flash to your artifacts.
- You must sacrifice artifact creatures to Arcum Dagsson.
Anyway. Plus one from me.

Very well thought out primer. Was really surprised to see that it was your first! The background and fonts look nice, too. Could never figure out how to get that to work properly. The deck looks great. I'm always glad to see another Rebbec/Glacian deck pop up on here. I do have a lot of recommendations and insight from the games I've played with my own Rebbec/Glacian deck.
(Side note before I get distracted - Blind Obedience has mono white color identity. The black in the reminder text does NOT count towards it's color identity.)
Cards I'd definitely recommend -
Mycosynth Lattice - Turns ALL permanents into artifacts. Perfect for Glacian. I know you said that you're mainly a budget player and that this card is in the "upgrades and future" tab, but this one shoudl definitely be near the top of that list. It's INSANELY good in this deck. Such a high price tag, though. :\ Smothering Tithe is in the same boat.
Liquimetal Torque and Liquimetal Coating - Both provide instant speed protection with Rebbec. Someone tries to cast Doom Blade on her or Glacian (or anyone else)? Tap either of these and they can become an artifact and gain Rebbec's protection.
A few more removal spells would probably be a good idea as well, it's something that my own deck struggles with as well. Dispatch is great. Dispeller's Capsule is removal and also an artifact. Duplicant and Steel Hellkite are both removal that also fill the missing 6 CMC slot in your mana curve.
There are a few tutors in that aren't super overpriced that might be worth looking into. Idyllic Tutor can help find Mechanized Production or Mirrodin Besieged. Fabricate can let you search for any artifact. Any of the artifact mage cards like Trinket Mage, Tribute Mage and Trophy Mage are also worth mentioning. They're a bit limited but they should all be relatively cheap. Another great one I've gotten a lot of use out of is Arcum Dagsson. You can sacrifice an artifact at instant speed to search up another one. Sac a myr token for Darksteel Forge? Oh yes. It also serves as protection with Rebbec as you can sac an artifact to search up one with a specific CMC (er... MV. Never gonna get used to that) that you may happen to need protection from at the time. He serves a similar role to Master Transmuter who I see in the maybeboard.
A special shout out goes to Geode Golem. With the enough artifacts and the protection that Rebbec gives, it should be pretty easy to get him to connect so you can cast Glacian for FREE!
If you wanted to go the "turn all my artifacts sideways at people" route, cards like Sakashima's Will and Masterful Replication work wonders with creatures like Filigree Attendant or Darksteel Juggernaut and Shambling Suit. On the other hand, Rise and Shine from MH2 just animates and tosses counters on things. Much simpler and can achieve the same result of smashed face! I have an Urza, Lord High Artificer deck that focuses on this exact gameplan.
Vedalken Archmage and Endless Atlas are two great card draw engines. One with the Machine is also great but you need something big on the field to really capitalize on it. I see that you have Esper Sentinel in the maybeboard and I can't for the life of me figure out why I didn't add it into my own deck. I just buylisted it a week or two ago. :(
I think that's all I have for now. I've linked my deck below. Feel free to check it out and see if any other ideas pop out at you from there. I'm excited for Kamigawa Neon Dynasty as it seems to have a pretty good artifact theme going on but I have a feeling that The Brother's War set at the end of the year is gonna be HUGE for Rebbec/Glacian!
