Hello! I've played Bosh amongst tons of other mono red artifact decks, so I would like to give my 2 cents on him while answering your questions.
- Mono red is a very fun artifact deck. I've built Daretti, Scrap Savant, Slobad, Goblin Tinkerer, Bosh, Iron Golem and Kurkesh, Onakke Ancient. While Bosh is SUPER fun, I felt he was too slow, fragile, and mana intensive. If you insist on running him I'd recommend running protection cards such as Swiftfoot Boots, Lightning Greaves, and Slobad, Goblin Tinkerer. While I loved all of these as commanders, I felt that Slobad was my favorite. Free sac outlet in the command zone/protection for key on the field artifacts is nothing to scoff at. In terms of adding other colors, you could certainly do that. I've also run a deck like this with Rakdos, Lord of Riots. Scrap Mastery was a bit of a backup plan, but saved me post boardwipe many a time. The deck revolved around pinging opponent and using Rakdos's reduction ability to play giant artifact creatures. I don't sadly have the list on me anymore, (I don't believe) but I will return after this comment to repost if I find it.
Sadly I never inputted a list before taking it apart as my playgroup didn't exactly enjoy it. What I can recommend though is a lot of egg cards. Egg is a term for a card like Chromatic Star/Ichor Wellspring. They add mana/cards when sacced/etb. When using Scrap Mastery you can get a bunch of Card Advantage after these re=enter the field.
When playing general reanimator decks you need to watch out for for graveyard hate. One Tormod's Crypt and your whole deck is ruined! Cards like Perpetual Timepiece are irreplaceable, as they not only mill you for more cards to Scrap Mastery back, but can save your grave in a pinch! When playing against it I would Bojuka Bog this deck immediately. Graveyard decks are a powerhouse when left unchecked.
I hope some of this helped. Happy brewing!
EDIT: I was looking for my list for Rakdos and found it!

Snips500: i think there would be enough ways around it you don't have to worry. the cards don't even have to say "any color". something like Utopia Sprawl would also work for the decks that can run it. and theres things like Chromatic Star and Chromatic Sphere. or Chromatic Lantern. any deck can run Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth. just gotta look.

This is actually a really interesting take on mono g tron since Chromatic Star and such can help reduce Reaper King's cost a lot. Since all the scarecrows are colorless though, you should definitely add a playset of Ancient Stirrings. To improve consistency, I think you should drop some of the signets and maybe a forest for Sylvan Scrying and the fourth Expedition Map.

TheSurgeon thats basically just a more expensive Altar of the Brood. In my opinion, Grinding Station requires a lot of building around, with a bunch of eggs like Chromatic Star, Sly Requisitioner, Sword of the Meek, Memnite and other 0 mana artifacts, Thopter Foundry, even KCI (I once brewed and played a deck built around this kind of stuff a year or so ago). Basically, its more at home in a different kind of artifact combo deck.
