Here are some cards I would cut and cards I would put in:

Cuts

Vivid Crag , Vivid Creek , Vivid Meadow , Mystic Monastery , Khalni Gem , Dispatch , Kazuul's Toll Collector , Kirtar's Wrath

Adds

Thriving Bluff , Thriving Isle , Thriving Heath , Raugrin Triome , Dowsing Dagger  Flip, Swords to Plowshares , Balan, Wandering Knight , Dalakos, Crafter of Wonders

I would also cut Sunforger for an Equipment such as Hammer of Nazahn or some other Equipment because with Sunforger , you want a package of Red and White Instants to have it go search for. Currently you only have Dispatch in the deck. If you plan on keeping Sunforger , I'd recommend adding more Red and/or White Instants.

cool deck!!!
Etherium Sculptor seems good.
Blinkmoth Urn could generate some serious mana for you given your artifact base.
Forsaken Monument makes your colorless rocks tap for more and also goes inf with basalt monolith.

a couple thoughts, artifact hate is a big part of the EDH meta, with cards like Vandalblast , Bane of Progress , Austere Command all seeing regular play. given that you are pretty much all in on artifacts, you may want to consider upping your Counterspell game to ensure you don't essentially lose the game when an opponent lands removal like that, as you can't always rely on having darksteel forge out. Hurkyl's Recall and Retract are other options if you are not into counterspells.

also, suggest to cut Khalni Gem as soon as possible- any one of Thran Dynamo , Hedron Archive , Worn Powerstone , Sisay's Ring , Chromatic Lantern , Skyclave Relic , Arcane Signet are all better and way less risky.
also i would check out your point removal: possibly Generous Gift over topple the statue, Arcane Denial , Unsubstantiate , or Boomerang over steel sabotage, Swords to Plowshares or Impulse or Anguished Unmaking over esper charm.
more ideas, Padeem, Consul of Innovation can give your artifacts hexproof and Shimmer Dragon would go great with Unwinding Clock .
anyway those are just some thoughts. hope some of them are helpful and keep having fun! cheers!!!

Thanks for checking out my deck carpecanum! I love absolutely love Rampage of the Clans that just hilarious to use. Khalni Gem is great call will definitely get that, and I'm back and forth on both Khalni Heart Expedition and Armillary Sphere but I think Armillary Sphere is better for me between the two. I didn't consider putting infect into this deck at all problem is that people will probably aggro me first then but I'll have to look into how many infect cards there are!

Rampage of the Clans could give you an army of centaurs.

Borborygmos Enraged maybe?

Evoke cards could come out cheap but allow you to play a higher CMC card with Kodama.

Khalni Gem lets you put lands back into your hand.

Khalni Heart Expedition , Armillary Sphere

This is mighty nice! I also do highly recommend some utility lands, since you're running so few spells. Also for one turn wins, you should try the Scapeshift + Crucible of Worlds combo, with all their addons (Ramunap Excavator, Life from the Loam, Splendid Reclamation <- explodes your landfall triggers after Scapeshift)!

Also some cards that work really well with this sort of approach:

Have you considered running Storm Cauldron ? Another great way to control the board that your commander can help circumvent. I've got a Patron of the Moon deck in the works, too, but I'm not running a competitive version. I'm considering running Mana Breach as well, but am not sure yet. I am running Overburden and Storm Cauldron , and use them in Simic lands deck I run, which work awesome. The downfall in blue, is the lack of ramp, like you point out.

I run a lot of land of bounce in the deck, and am considering Khalni Gem as well. How does it work for you? Also, with the untap effects in the deck, I'm giving Scaretiller a go, too. Have you thought about it?

+1 from a fellow Patron builder!

What about Khalni Gem , Tilling Treefolk or Rites of Spring ? I like my Borborygmos Enraged deck and those are some of the nice interactions with land based decks. +1
