What I found worked best for a Sen Triplets deck is using blue and white for control so you can have your artifacts do all the work getting combos into play.
Stop players from stopping your fun: the match is yours and they simply haven't realized it yet. Dispatch quickly sets you up for a nasty rebuttal in between whichever counter-spell you choose to deploy. Vindicate, Mortify and Fracture (to name a few..) will help them learn that you mean business.
Utilizing Esper colors, Black is the tutor-for-all, Blue is great artifact tutoring and White for some artifact but also enchantments. Good enchantments to have on hand are Paradox Haze (which you have) and Artificer's Intuition. Intuition is good because you can use it to get a Sol Ring in hand, another cost artifact you might have, or, any of the following "artifacts that cost :
- Ancient Den
- Vault of Whispers
- Seat of the Synod
- Darksteel Citadel
- Goldmire Bridge
- Mistvault Bridge
- Razortide Bridge
This cards makes for great and tutoring in a non-green deck as it can be used again and again and there are quite a few you can fetch. Another option is Tezzeret the Seeker that can get you your lands by using the -X ability for 0 to put them into play, unless you want to get a different combo/ramp artifact instead.
Besides the obvious Vampiric Tutor an Demonic Tutor for your get-anything option, there are many options still available for finding the cards you need that are artifact type.
If you are ok with losing a few artifacts, Kuldotha Forgemaster is the ticket as I will sometimes even sac my artifact lands to get better beef on the ground. Otherwise, Sphinx Summoner will get you something in hand and provide you with a flier and a card. Some new cards that play well alongside the Trinket Mage are the Tribute Mage and Trophy Mage cards. Trinket gets you your Sol Ring or another artifact where Tribute and Trophy get you and , respectively.
Artifact-related lands you want to look into are Inventors' Fair for artifact tutoring and Buried Ruin to get something back into your hand from the graveyard.
With such a vast array of artifact-type cards - especially mana ramp - you'll want an Unwinding Clock to be sure to keep everyone on edge.
Steal their Kool Aid
Your Commander will lock a player out of your turn but it also allows you to play their hands. This is a good time to drop any lands they might have in their hands to keep them starved and likewise cast their good ramp spells to get you ahead or continue to lock them out. In the event they finally are able to cast something, you can respond with a Desertion counter-spell (mana permitting) and stick whatever creature/artifact they were trying to cast back in their Vault of Whispers. Thada Adel, Acquisitor and Daxos of Meletis are also nasty foes that puts an opponents deck against themselves. Bribery and Acquire are a malicious and personal jab that should only be used at every chance you get assert your dominance on the board and your opponents deck.
All these cards stand alone from what you can do to further abuse you opponents with just your commanders abilities: it is a multi-pronged deck that throws multiple threats at your enemies making them scramble to deal with one thing while still getting overrun by another.

Rakton The build looks a lot stronger! My current thoughts would be:
I think you should ditch Darksteel Forge. Its mana cost is really prohibitive, and i think it would be better to use your treasure towards getting the dragon out, rather than this. This also feels too late-game to be super useful.
I think you should be running a playset of Galvanic Blast. Interaction is super important in magic, don’t just ket your opponent do what they want! I actually think your deck might be a lot stronger with 8 cards of interaction, so i’d also suggest adding a playset of Dispatch.
i’m not sure you get huge value from Slag Fiend here, so maybe that goes to make room for some of the above.

Thanks for the advice ClockworkSwordfish! I just came up with this idea and threw together what was in my head the last few hours. Oketra does definitely sound better and I agree about having less Eater of Virtues, I'm still not great at deckbuilding, so I am trying to work on a good balance of power and also removal hence the Dispatch and Wear / Tear for more competitive scenes. But I'll definitely make those edits before actually purchasing these cards and building the deck.

I'd cut out a mix of Welding Jar and Pithing Needle depending on the amount of Dispatch you want to run, the reason beeing both Welding Jar and Pithing Needle can be turored out of your library by Urza's Saga.
Heroic Intervention seems like a meta-call to me against things like Anger of the Gods or Supreme Verdict, so depending on the meta you can cut one of those too.

I'd consider switching some Glimmervoids for Seachrome Coasts. You're almost entirely a two color deck, and hands that rely on glimmervoid for land one or two can be very fragile. Don't get rid of all of them because of courier and intervention, but I'd cut down. For Dispatch, I'd swap out some number of welding jar or heroic intervention, simply because you don't really want 5 of that effect. I'd also swap out Hotshot Mechanic for anything else, since you don't get any benefit from its effect. Steel Overseer would be my suggestion, but I'd also peruse some modern affinity lists for ideas. Maybe consider Treasure Vault in the mana base to color fix, ramp, and add a bunch artifacts for affinity. Also, Arcbound Ravager is pretty much a staple for this type of deck. Mechtitan is kind of taking its spot in this list, but the ability to move the counters around after blocking for no mana is very powerful.

Get 2-3x Dispatch in the side, it's the one of the best removal spells you can have once metalcraft is active.
