Otherworldly Outburst - Like Extricator, a 3/2 is unlikely to make a very big difference.
Isochron Scepter - with 109 cards in deck right now, there are only 4 cards that could even meet the criteria to use this. Fall of the Titans won't work because this won't let you pay alternative costs.
Planar Gate - quite expensive, and while awesome, you would get more mileage out of something like Ugin, the Ineffable, since your Devoid spells are technically colorless. It would benefit your artifacts as well as your Eldrazi. His activated abilities are nothing to sneeze at either.
Rhystic Tutor - someone is going to pay the 2... if you could pick the opponent, different story. As is, it's unlikely to ever resolve. you would be better off with something like Vampiric Tutor if you were going for another tutor effect, but that one is rather pricey as well.
From Beyond - very slow for what it does, not sure it's worth it in the long run.
Endless One - a big mana sink with no keywords or activated abilities is underwhelming.
Desolation Twin - the 10/10 token is only on cast, so if there are any effects that would reanimate it, put it into play, etc that happen to go off, it's just a vanilla 10/10. For 10cmc, you would be better off running either version of Kozilek or Ulamog.
Emrakul's Evangel - I didn't realize that the condition to get the 3/2's required "non-eldrazi" to be sacrificed. It's a non-bo with the deck.
Cards to consider:
Void Attendant - Mana sink to potentially get more scion tokens.
World Breaker - a recurrable threat that exiles permanents.
Essence Depleter - Mana sink to lifegain/drain someone.
Grip of Desolation - 2 for 1 removal spell.
Ruination Guide - Colorless, front-end creature pump.
Sire of Stagnation - Jerk card for jerks. Slows opponents down or exiles their fuel. slows them down either way to give you more time to amass your army.
Cards to Add:
Herald of Kozilek - cost reduction for your deck.
Swarm Surge - Colorless creature pump and First Strike.
Smothering Abomination - Card draw for sac'ing a token on upkeep.
Brood Butcher - turns your tokens into removal for BG to -2/-2 something.
Deepfathom Skulker - lets you draw for each attacking creature you control that connects with a player.

I think you could make some use from cost reducers so you aren't so reliant on Krark-Clan Ironworks. Helm of Awakening, Jhoira's Familiar, Foundry Inspector, Herald of Kozilek, and Etherium Sculptor are all fairly good.

As a fellow Breya player, I have a few suggestions. Get a better mana base! Karoos suck in a 4 colour deck. I'd go with checking taplands as a bare minimum, but if your budget allows it, shocks and fetches are always welcome (but not necessary imo). If you'd like to check my manabase feel free.
As for the core deck, it's the standard EDHREC combo Breya deck, and it's a good thing: it's balanced and not too fast with respect to a standard playgroup and I can relate very well with those builds. If you want to go down the combo route and go for cEDH performances, you should just take out some cards like Commander's Sphere , Tezzeret, Artifice Master or Herald of Kozilek . This will take you, possibly, towards Doomsday builds.
If instead, you'd like to move more toward a slower type of gameplay, with more artifact interactions, you could take a look at my build. There are some janky combos here and there, but nothing as serious as the combos in yours. Be sure to check the latest version!

For me, I use a strange combo. What I use (What I have in my deck) is Tidespout Tyrant , Nettle Drone and then one of the following. - Spellbook + Hope of Ghirapur + either 1. Jhoira's Familiar 2. Foundry Inspector 3. Herald of Kozilek You play Spellbook bouncing whatnot to someone's hand, tapping Nettle Drone do deal 1 damage to each opponent. Then play Hope of Ghirapur , bouncing Spellbook to your hand, untapping Nettle Drone to tap it again to deal 1 damage to each opponent. Then Play Spellbook again, and untap Nettle Drone , tap it again, and you rinse and repeat to win. - Or Omniscience and any two artifacts/colourless non-land permanents, and do the same as above.

I don't know if you will ever see this again or need it because it is such a late response, but it is best to put in 2 cost or lower artifacts to get that easy card draw from Jhoira.The main way the deck should win is to draw out all your cards. You'll need Laboratory Maniac and Jace, Wielder of Mysteries to do this. then just pretty much load up your deck with mana rock artifacts such as Manakin or Silver Myr . Lastly, you'll need some counterspells and some artifacts that are really good, such as Aetherflux Reservoir . Oh, and you will definitely need cost reduction creatures/artifacts. The ones I use are Semblance Anvil , Etherium Sculptor , Jhoira's Familiar , Herald of Kozilek , and Foundry Inspector . A couple of infinite/ win combos you can use would be: Dramatic Reversal and Isochron Scepter . Those two require you to tap two mana to cast a copy of dramatic reversal, so if you tap two of your artifact mana rocks, you can untap all your artifacts. Ancestral Statue can also bounce itself back to your hand, so if you have enough cost reduction to make it free, you basically draw unlimited cards until you win.
