Artifact Creature — Juggernaut
Darksteel Juggernaut's power and toughness are each equal to the number of artifacts you control.
Darksteel Juggernaut attacks each combat if able.

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!

Ooh, very intriguing "diamond" tribal, with plenty of flavour tying it all together! Wasn't familiar with the Diamond Knight and friends, and when assembling in paper, I was pleasantly surprised to discover Plains which is also illustrated by Alayna Danner, and feels like an extension of the diamond-panorama.

Building an Akiri deck I'm on the artifact matters path, perhaps this utility can improve the flow if you find it lacking in places, and increase the value of X

As always, what's my budget, what cards do you own/not own? That's the first step. Maybe artifacts like similar to Ichor Wellspring, like Filigree Familiar that give you benefits for entering the battlefield. You definitely need at least 3 more lands. Buried Ruin should be one of them. Boros Garrison is another good include. I'm not a fan of Mindslaver, myself. It's too mean. My current favorite Boros combo is Basalt Monolith + Zirda, the Dawnwaker for infinite colorless mana. I always like to have Elixir of Immortality to bounce my graveyard back to my library, especially if there are mill effects involved. I like Darksteel Forge and Darksteel Reactor, but your mileage may vary. Foundry Inspector would definitely not be a bad idea. Maybe something like Stensia Masquerade or Archetype of Courage to give your team first strike, if you don't want to pony up for Akroma's Memorial. Puppet Strings is a good way to get an extra activation of your commander. Scrap Mastery is good. I'm also a fan of Darksteel Juggernaut. Sorry this is pretty scattered. I hope it gives you some ideas. Here are a couple of artifact decks I've built in the past, that you may find interesting:

Magnetic Theft is a combat trick. Allows me to throw worldslayer on any unblocked creature before combat damage, either my opponents or my own.
Darksteel Juggernaut is basically the same thing as cranial plating.
The red green colors are specifically only for magnetic theft and Ancient Stirrings.
The deck plays very defensive, T1 and T2 are 90% of the time spent prepping for a big drop on T3 or 4.
I also think you may have been looking at an outdated version. I updated the list today and removed all of the "sword of" cards... I came to the same conclusion you did.

Tome of Legends , Urza's Saga , and Smothering Tithe are both powerful and synergistic, but are also expensive. If you are using the Osgir precon as a shell for the deck, Digsite Engineer and Bronze Guardian are both payoffs for having a ton of artifacts, as well as Darksteel Juggernaut . Walking Ballista , Triskelion , and Monoskelion are all good at converting counters into damage, and Fiery Emancipation seems like some great top end in order to make your stuff hit hard enough to kill. Other good counter payoffs include Triskelavus , Pentavus , and Crystalline Crawler .If you plan to sacrifice creatures a lot, then Blade of the Bloodchief can do a lot of work here too.

Golgari Guildgate could probably be swapped for Command Tower . Other useful cards might be Darksteel Juggernaut , Bonehoard , Shambling Suit , Steel Overseer and Traxos, Scourge of Kroog . There's some pricey versions of some of these cards for a few bucks or more but there's also 50 cent versions.

Flow of Ideas is great card draw in mono-blue. Slinn Voda, the Rising Deep is also a Whelming Wave (although it's a creature and not a good polymorph target), and so is Scourge of Fleets . Volition Reins instead of Lay Claim unless you're super attached to the cycling. Budget options instead of Blightsteel Colossus are Ixidron , Scourge of Fleets , Colossus of Akros , Broodstar , Darksteel Juggernaut or Stormtide Leviathan .
