Love the deck tech and this is an archetype I have thought often of, though trying to do both artifacts and enchantments in a three-color format and not restrict your synergies can be tough. You're better off either going full enchantment or full artifact and then you'll be running a more streamlined, combotastic deck by doing so. I think you've gone heavier on the artifact side, or we'd be seeing more enchantment creatures from Theros and the Commander enchantment-creature precon and enchantment removal spells that combo with things like Blightcaster and Grim Guardian (which all combo with enchanting removal like Pacifism and Prison Realm and Dead Weight , etc.). To this artifact-heavy focus, I think Myr Retriever and Workshop Assistant are too redundant and provide only small bodies on the field when there are so many other cards that have this same effect already in the deck here ( Sharuum the Hegemon , Buried Ruin , etc.). Plus, without a sacrifice outlet, Workshop Assistant is definitely not the kind of card you want to be top-decking in situations where you've run out of steam. On the other hand, you may need more card draw rather than grave draw, since you don't self-mill, (especially if you're in a situation where Distant Melody is dead in your hand) and I think Mask of Riddles is an ideal sideboard/budget alternate for this deck. And is Ever-Watching Threshold in the pre-con? It should be. Faerie Mechanist comes to me as a distant budget option (because it only looks at the top 3 cards of your library, it's too limited to be truly useful since this deck also runs so many enchantments and creatures, but it's got tribal, flying, and it is an artifact as such is worth a mention). Finally, if you can make double-black mana work in your casting, Underworld Connections is card advantage that seems to be a staple of commander that also happens to trigger your commander. Sludge Strider can get you that life back on occasions where you have extra mana and are losing artifact creatures or sacrificing artifacts to effects (heck, even Dimir Locket and Orzhov Locket couldn't go wrong as cheap ramp that gets you card draw in the late game and triggers other effects). And take out the Winged Words from the 60-card precon, which gets you nowhere in a 100-card format, and put in at least a Terramorphic Expanse if you don't have access to better quality dual-lands. Campaign of Vengeance and Ethereal Absolution if you're really committed to going wide with your commander (I mean, with Etchings and Ethereal and your commander, you could have at least five or six 4/3 flying faeries threatening to go wider and wider). They could be protected from board wipes by an additional counterspell, like Stoic Rebuttal . I could go on and on, but definitely replace a few of the things in the precon with at least a few of these.

Probably way too cute but Ever-Watching Threshold makes anyone who attacks you trigger Kefneternal

Hey man!

I think that Chasm Skulker , Psychosis Crawler , and Diviner's Wand could be good for extra wincons as you draw a bunch of cards. Maybe Ever-Watching Threshold to ensure your opponents don't attack you and Rhystic Study to draw more cards?

Good Luck!

Hey you

How's Keeper of Keys working for you? I think it's kind of expensive, and holding on to the monarch for a full rotation is usually hard IMO. I think Marchesa's Decree would be a better option of introducing the monarch to the game, although it's somewhat in conflict with Ever-Watching Threshold

It looks good! The only change I'd personally make is re-adding Mystic Speculation for early TOL control and for the combo with Paradox Engine, but that's just personal taste.

I also just added Treasure Nabber and Ever-Watching Threshold, if you are interested in testing some new pieces from C18 ;)

Have you found that 1) you have enough lands? and 2) Snapcaster Mage has been doing work?

Best of luck! And thanks for taking such an interest in my list :)
