Hey, very good version of Breya.
Ignore the ridiculous inaccurate competitive meter that says this deck is only 39%. The power level is much higher than that especially with busted card additions of Demonic, Mox, Urza, Tezzeret and Blightsteel. I would put your deck in the 70-75% range.
There's 2x Darksteel Forge here which isn't legal in Commander. Could cut one for Goblin Engineer. Engineer can tutor for any artifact or best of all one of Deathmantle, Altar, Sword, Foundry of the combos putting it into your graveyard to then recur or reanimate. Engineer has good interaction with Welder and Emry. Could add Shimmer Myr as the 100th card since it gives Breya and all other artifacts flash. It's much more deadly to be able to combo with Breya at instant speed in response to anything an opponent plays.
Grand Architect + Deathmantle + Breya + two blue Thopters. Is a combo to kill all all your opponents, one at a time with Breya's 3 damage to target player mode. Breya and the two Thopters she creates are blue; with Architect can tap him, Breya and each Thopter to make . Which is enough to activate Breya and pay for Deathmantle. The combo works because Breya is an artifact, she can sac herself as one of the two artifacts. Tap her and the two Thopters to make . Activate Breya, sac her and one Thopter. Trigger Deathmantle, pay to bring back Breya and repeat.
If playing Thopter Assembly then consider adding Time Sieve? Without Sieve for the infinite turns combo I don't think Assembly is worth it since there's other much more powerful cards and interactions here. Arcane Signet is an upgrade for any Talisman or Signet. Glimmervoid and Spire of Industry are land upgrades to consider. They could replace the two Tainted lands since there's not a lot of Swamps here, but many artifacts.
Good luck with your deck.

You could try taking out a Vedalken Engineer and a Drawn from Dreams since you have Sage of Epityr and you no longer have Darksteel Colossus which makes the ramping for artifacts a little overkill, especially since by the time you have your Karn out you will already have almost all the mana you need to cast Knowledge Pool. Actually you could possibly take out a Grand Architect, since he sometimes gets in the way and the aggro of it is somewhat deterrent if you are trying to lock the board down.
I do like the change you made with Flooded Strand as it makes it so Blood Moon can't effect you if you crack it while Blood Moon is on the stack to fetch a basic. It also give you that shuffle that you might need if you realize that Sage of Epityr did not give you what you wanted. Also just good for a shuffle if you are being mana screwed/flooded.
Sigarda's Aid is a neat descision, as it allows you to flash your lock enchantment out at the end of your opponents turn or at the beginning to stop them from doing anything if you have Knowledge Pool.

Wow, great work MagicalHacker. Reformatted with card links and averages (rounded up) of the range of decks the combos are in. I figure a single number for each 2 card combo makes it easker to tally up and figure percentages later. So 120,411 two-card combos total.

Hmmm. Maybe try a big artifact creature in there like Blightsteel Colossus. You have LOTS of ramp to cast artifacts with and not a lot of artifacts to cast. You only have 3xBurnished Hart and 1xKnowledge Pool with 3xVedalken Engineer and 3xGrand Architect.

These cards do the same thing:
Blood Clock and Umbilicus Giant Growth and Brute Force Etherium Sculptor and Herald of Kozilek Vedalken Engineer and Renowned Weaponsmith also similar are Soldevi Machinist, Dalakos, Crafter of Wonders, and Grand Architect Kiora's Follower and Unbender Tine
