+1: Until your next turn, up to one target noncreature artifact become an artifact creature with power and toughness equal to the amount of artifacts equal to their converted mana cost

-2: You may choose an artifact card you own from outside the game or in exile, reveal that card and put it to your hand

For ramp, have you considered any combination of Ambitious Farmhand  Flip, Environmental Sciences, Kor Cartographer and The Birth of Meletis if you need a way to to get lands onto the battlefield faster there's also Walking Atlas

Puresteel Paladin is also an option for you. Not only can you get some extra card draw, but once you have 3 artifacts on the battlefield, equipping Balan will be free. Though Maul of the Skyclaves can enter the battlefield equipped to a creature.

If you have cash to spare, don't forget Shadowspear.

Also, since you have a lot of artifacts, Have you considered Inspiring Statuary, Introduction to Annihilation and Scour from Existence as a means to protect yourself from the Karn, the Great Creator/Mycosynth Lattice Combo? If nothing else, Inspiring Statuary will at least help make your nonartifact spells cost less.

Other artifact lands to put in your deck are Ancient Den and Treasure Vault

Thank you for reading me out. I hope this helps. Happy Hunting!

Nantuko Elder is a mana dork insect if you're interested. Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest is a good insect in Golgari creature decks, especially if you can make a few tokens. Demon of Dark Schemes can go infinite with your Underworld Hermit (or other Hermit family cards), but it would wipe out your smaller creatures (and get energy for it, with your Commander you could then reanimate at your leisure) when it's played. It's ability to grab stuff from any graveyard is quite notable though. Ohran Frostfang is amazing in anything aggro.Ogre Slumlord is pretty good with rats, and it can be triggered a lot if other people run creatures.

For control I have a few ideas, if you want some flying hatred that's on flavour, Silklash Spider is a repeatable flyer wipe, scalable to protect your Commander as needed. If you want some Golgari control options, you could consider Null Rod (or Karn, the Great Creator), Root Maze, Hall of Gemstone which hates on multicoloured decks hard, Defense Grid, Manglehorn, maybe Tangle Wire, Winter Orb and Freyalise's Winds because you can untap your lands as needed. Even Static Orb could work for you, not sure if you have enough life gain as is, but you probably won't need to use the ability a ton of times if nobody else can untap.

Hope this stuff helps, cool deck! I built a rat deck using the Drop rat cards, Harmonious Celestial Rat Farm, neat to see some other ways to use these cards.

I think that you should replace Burning Sands with Zealous Conscripts since the Sands conflicts with Kiki-Jiki and adding the Conscripts gives you a potential combo win condition.

You could also run Karn, the Great Creator to combo with Mycosynth Lattice, locking down your opponents' lands and mana rocks. You could possibly replace Tectonic Instability for Karn.

You probably need some more card draw too, although it's kind of hard to find efficient fits. Endless Atlas is pretty good but doesn't work as well alongside the spells that also destroy your own lands. Mazemind Tome helps but can only be activated a few times. Chandra's Regulator is card filtering.

If you're going to be running a Mycosynth Lattice in your decklist, swapping something out with Karn, the Great Creator would be a no -brainer as an alternate win-con to lock down the board

wallisface. Thank you for your thoughts! I've just had no time to finish the deck. Still testing it and replacing cards. Also I still have to test it with local players.

Actually, what can you suggest to put in the sideboard to counter Karn, the Great Creator? I would like not to include additional colors in this deck

It feels like this decks needs to find its pieces fast in order to be doing much of anything. I would suggest a playset Whir of Invention for helping get what you need.

Your sideboard confuses me a bit. A lot of the cards there don’t appear to help against any particular bad matchups (also, you have 4 Semblance Anvil there, putting you at 6 total, which isn’t legal). I would suggest having Welding Jar in the sideboard to help versus inevitable artifact destruction. You should also have sideboard answers to deal with Collector Ouphe, Karn, the Great Creator, and cards like Rest in Peace, which all look like they’ll hurt you super-bad
