Artifact Creature — Myr
When Myr Retriever is put into the graveyard from the battlefield, return another target artifact card from your graveyard to your hand.

Changed the mainboard to have more combo cards notably cutting Arcum's Astrolabe which freed the manabase from having to run snow-basics.
With the changes to SB and MB having 3 artifacts worth saccing for Salvage Titan became a bit farfetched witch is why he's no longer in the deck.
I would love to squeeze in 4x Chromatic Sphere for another 1cmc card to bring back with Scrap Trawler triggers but it's hard to shave cards while running Locket of Yesterdays and the land count is about as low as it can get.

Just a quick note: For ten bucks you can add the infinite draw/mana/ETB triggers by getting Scrap Trawler and Krark-Clan Ironworks . (Note: this combo requires a cost-decreasing permanent as well, Phyrexian Altar can be used as well, but it requires two cost reducers). Anyway, that's one of the simplest infinite mana loops in the game(cost reducer + Krark-Clan Ironworks + Scrap Trawler + Myr Retriever ). I run a similar deck that you can look at here:Mishra's Favorite Toolbox.

I'm actually surprised it took me long to make this substitution since the timepiece was for control and mill matchups and the titan is better in both cases.
With Teshar, retriever, trawler, cathodion and egg on the battlefield you cast the titan sacrificing cathodion, retriever and egg triggering Teshar, retriever cathodion and trawler. With Teshar you return the Cathodion to the battlefield, with the retriever you return a Titan to hand and with the trawler you return some eggs. With the mana from Cathodion you cast an egg returning the retriever then you can cast the Titan sacrificing the Titan on the battlefield, a retriever and the cathodion. With this plus some self-sacrificing eggs or creativity you can generate a lot of mana and draw your entire deck and win with Grinding Station and/or Spine of Ish Sah

Love the deck tech and this is an archetype I have thought often of, though trying to do both artifacts and enchantments in a three-color format and not restrict your synergies can be tough. You're better off either going full enchantment or full artifact and then you'll be running a more streamlined, combotastic deck by doing so. I think you've gone heavier on the artifact side, or we'd be seeing more enchantment creatures from Theros and the Commander enchantment-creature precon and enchantment removal spells that combo with things like Blightcaster and Grim Guardian (which all combo with enchanting removal like Pacifism and Prison Realm and Dead Weight , etc.). To this artifact-heavy focus, I think Myr Retriever and Workshop Assistant are too redundant and provide only small bodies on the field when there are so many other cards that have this same effect already in the deck here ( Sharuum the Hegemon , Buried Ruin , etc.). Plus, without a sacrifice outlet, Workshop Assistant is definitely not the kind of card you want to be top-decking in situations where you've run out of steam. On the other hand, you may need more card draw rather than grave draw, since you don't self-mill, (especially if you're in a situation where Distant Melody is dead in your hand) and I think Mask of Riddles is an ideal sideboard/budget alternate for this deck. And is Ever-Watching Threshold in the pre-con? It should be. Faerie Mechanist comes to me as a distant budget option (because it only looks at the top 3 cards of your library, it's too limited to be truly useful since this deck also runs so many enchantments and creatures, but it's got tribal, flying, and it is an artifact as such is worth a mention). Finally, if you can make double-black mana work in your casting, Underworld Connections is card advantage that seems to be a staple of commander that also happens to trigger your commander. Sludge Strider can get you that life back on occasions where you have extra mana and are losing artifact creatures or sacrificing artifacts to effects (heck, even Dimir Locket and Orzhov Locket couldn't go wrong as cheap ramp that gets you card draw in the late game and triggers other effects). And take out the Winged Words from the 60-card precon, which gets you nowhere in a 100-card format, and put in at least a Terramorphic Expanse if you don't have access to better quality dual-lands. Campaign of Vengeance and Ethereal Absolution if you're really committed to going wide with your commander (I mean, with Etchings and Ethereal and your commander, you could have at least five or six 4/3 flying faeries threatening to go wider and wider). They could be protected from board wipes by an additional counterspell, like Stoic Rebuttal . I could go on and on, but definitely replace a few of the things in the precon with at least a few of these.

Just be careful with a Boros strategy that lacks card draw. It seems the end game of your deck is to draw everything via 4 different cards, but actually getting to those cards without having inherent card draw in the deck is going to be very difficult (which is why it was so important that Feather, the Redeemed gave us card draw). Also, in a deck where Goblin Bombardment is your main win condition, I'd suggest running Hall of Heliod's Generosity in order to give it more sticking power.
