sergiodelrio thanks for the suggestions! I love me a good Implement of Combustion and don't think I've ever seen Conjurer's Bauble. I should be giving Experimental Synthesizer an honest shot but definitely fall into the "but it's exiled and I have to use it immediately or lose it forever" mentality all too easily.

Here are some cards you might be interested in:

Experimental Synthesizer - this one is extra spicy, since it basically triggers twice, but suffers from the fact that it needs a sac outlet unless you wanna pay 3 extra mana.

Chromatic Star Chromatic Sphere - very similar to terrarion

Implement of Combustion

Conjurer's Bauble Mishra's Bauble

Also, since your deck is full of artifacts anyway, Galvanic Blast is a Lightning Bolt on steroids, you could put some at least in your sideboard if you ever feel like you need the interaction.

Another interesting card could be Lotus Bloom, maybe even as a 1-of to pair with Goblin Engineer.

So many possibilities - Happy brewing!

Thanks for the suggestions Ookafont! I actually JUST cut Barbed Batterfist but this is still a pretty rough-draft-y list and i think it could be a nice card in place of Lembas which has felt a little slow where at Barbed Batterfist hits the ground running a bit faster. Foundry Helix is sweet but reduces Experimental Synthesizer’s draw consistency by being 3 mana. Faithless Looting is a pretty goated red card and i think id be more inclined if i was running Lunarch Veteran  Flip in addition to Sacred Cat but the deck doesnt benefit enough from gy stuff in its current state to feel like its quite worth it.

If you are trying to make this more competitive then there is a bit I would cut from your deck. Here are some of my thoughts about some of the cards you are running that may need to more consideration to how your deck is crafted. You can see suggested cards towards the bottom.

Automated Artificer - Not that impactful of a card for your deck as most your artifacts that it could help you ramp are already cheap to cast, it doesn't have a good place here.

Jaxis, the Troublemaker - I'm honestly not sure what you are trying to copy here for value. Card feels like you want to get a Fable of the Mirror-Breaker  Flip.

Kami of Terrible Secrets - The size of the body for cost situational card draw would make this a cut. Better cards to be running that can give you better value.

Karn, Living Legacy - While your welcome to run the card, this is more a meme then a serious play card I would imagine. It doesn't do anything impactful to the board and the mana rocks it generates are that useful to your build. Trying to go the keep +1 to get to ult seems like a hard reason to want to keep.

Jodah's Codex - This is expensive card draw to be playing and would not trying running this card unless you are trying a domain build where the draw becomes free.

Dragonspark Reactor - is a cool card, but I don't think you are using enough cards that are artifacts to warrant this in deck unless you make changes.

Ghoulish Procession - seems interesting, but you may want to trim this to make room for more artifact based cards to get better synergies.

Patchwork Automaton - If you wish to run this, then I would suggest adjusting your deck to run at least 20 artifacts that you can cast for the trigger.

Cards you may be interested in using are that are seem as "staples" to the rakdos artifact deck are: Experimental Synthesizer, Bloodtithe Harvester, & Voltage Surge. These offer you card advantages that work well with the anvil and also have some flexibility in their use.

From the new set I would say check out Garna, Bloodfist of Keld. This lets you get some extra burn to your opponent if you creatures die outside of combat, but you get extra card draw bonus for each creature that dies in combat. Please note that you could sacrifice your artifact creatures to Oni-Cult Anvil after damage step if they survive before leaving combat if you need that draw.

Last note I would have is you would likely want to be running 4 Oni-Cult Anvil if you plan on building around them. More of them in play is always better as long as you don't get hit by a Farewell.

If you have any questions about the suggestions or comments please let me know and I will try to help.

I should add that colorless cards like The Underworld Cookbook are legal in any Commander deck.

Token creatures do not count toward the 100. This next note is a little more advanced, but you can create tokens that are not in your commander's color identity, as long as the source is within the color identity. As an example, Experimental Synthesizer creates a white creature token, but is legal in a deck. The way to tell if you can use a card is if it has the symbol , , , , or . If it simply says the word white, to use the Experimental Synthesizer example, it is legal with any commander that uses .

To determine how many lands of a given color to add, aim for the same balance as the card color requirements. On TappedOut, there's a pie chart by this comments section. The closer the inner circle matches up with the outer circle, the more accurate your land balance will be.

You can also go the more math-intensive route and count the number of symbols of each color in your deck and divide that by the number of land slots. So if you have, say, 80 and 40 across all the mana costs in your deck, you will want twice as many lands that produce as lands that produce .

As you expand your collection, look for lands that can produce more than one color of mana. These are available at every level, from the common Swiftwater Cliffs and Izzet Guildgate to the rare and valuable Steam Vents and Fiery Islet. These can take the place of a basic land of either color, but remember, you can only have one of each card in Commander, aside from basic lands.

Also important are other cards that can produce mana. Arcane Signet, Sol Ring, and Izzet Cluestone are all examples of these.

I think narrowing some focus on what you're going after for a win-con is something to fix up here.

I would suggest looking at current Rakdos Artifact decks and Mono-Red Goblins for some ideas.

Fable of the Mirror-Breaker  Flip is expected to be a red staple and has been in the last week. Oni-Cult Anvil can turn your treasures into pingers that come back as 2/2 cats that will also get you full value out of Gala Greeters. Additionally, this allows you to sac those tapped treasures and get that value instantly. If you do go this route Experimental Synthesizer will allow you to dig faster.

Probably need some one-drops as well such as Goblin Javelineer or Voltage Surge. Voltage Surge will help against Yasharn, Implacable Earth which shuts down sac what I'm suggesting as well as those with Casualty... Ob Nilixis, the Adversary is my main concern. He looks like he's taking out not only the 5 families but going for the Emperor too.

Jetmir is nasty and I would put him over Ziatora or vice versa. Just so we're not running only one of each.

Honestly, this is a great concept and I might build a version of this myself! Thanks for sharing!

I really did consider it, and played it for a while but it was much too inconsistent for me. Geistflame Reservoir or Experimental Synthesizer could maybe make the cut in some form?
