Cool deck, love me some Izzet decks.

I would recommend Arcane Signet and Shimmer Dragon if you want more draw.

I can’t remember if the deck comes with Metalwork Colossus or not, but it could be nice here.

Oh and Saheeli, Sublime Artificer or Saheeli Rai could be nice to or copy your big artifacts.

Spine of Ish Sah seems like a perfect fit here, as Bosh can throw 7 damage at your opponent's face turn after turn while it blows up a permanent every time. Mishra's Self-Replicator also seems like it could provide some solid reliability: every time you play an artifact, it's just to get another 5-mana artifact to chuck at your foe.

If you really want some big-league damage, though, I think Metalwork Colossus could fit the bill. Thank to all of your artifacts you should be able to play him for a considerable discount, but he still hits for 11 points when you fling him at your foe. Best of all? You can even ditch a couple of tiny trinkets to bring him back for another round!

Any Vehicle could be turned into a creature when you want while being safe from "destroy all creatures" when you don't want

Metalwork Colossus, Ancient Stone Idol if you are winning with damage. Memnarch, Nullstone Gargoyle, maybe even Platinum Angel

How do you feel about pseudo-giants, like Metalwork Colossus or Combustible Gearhulk?

Few suggestions: Ugin's Nexus LOVES to be sacrificed, and makes your opponents play fair until you do, Metalwork Colossus is a recurrable, sometimes free artifact that can do a lot of damage when given Infect, Mind Stone is excellent cheap ramp that can be cashed in for a card in dire situations, and Cabal Coffers is a good card for those of us with ten billion dollars. Love the deck, so glad you're using Filigree Familiar ;)

Seems like a super fun deck idea, my only contributions/suggestions would be to add a extra few cost-reduction effects, as nothing would be worse than someone countering your commander and then just having a Metalwork Colossus and an Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger trapped in your hand forever. Maybe add Jhoira's Familiar/Cloud Key/Foundry Inspector.

and just some good value cards could be Conduit of Ruin, Eye of Ugin, Molten Nursery/Nettle Drone (those ones would be super good!), Mystic Forge, Sanctum of Ugin and Shrine of the Forsaken Gods. Good luck!

Ancient Stone Idol, I've tried to run Ancient Stone Idol in my Bosh, Iron Golem - ArtiSMASH! deck, but it ends up being a dead card in hand too often where you have other options with better cost reduction like Metalwork Colossus, Oxidda Golem, and Myr Enforcer to fill that spot. The reduction off attacking just never hits for much. Maybe it drops it one or two, but often I can cast Metalwork Colossus for one or two.

I've also considered Draco and maybe I should again, but I never felt I would cheat it consistently enough.
