Rebbec, Architect of Ascension
Legendary Creature — Human Artificer
Artifacts you control have protection from each converted mana cost among artifacts you control. ((Remember the acronym debt.) This creature can't be damaged, enchanted, equipped, blocked or targeted by anything with a converted mana cost equal to the converted mana cost of an artifact you control. Anything anything with a converted mana cost equal to the converted mana cost of an artifact you control attached to this creature immediately falls off.)
Partner (You can have two commanders if both have partner.)

Boxfish It was a wonderful weekend, thank you!
I love all of these changes, they look quite well-decided. Viscera Seer is a monstrous card when you can use them. They've the ability to just help you dig for answers, like your Crypt Rats or Gray Merchant of Asphodel.
It's a touch rude for a solution, but for token producers like Scute Swarm, Krenko, Mob Boss, Myr Battlesphere, Thopter Assembly, or even Blade of Selves; Pestilence, Withering Wisps, Toxic Deluge; Cheap solutions that can get expensive, that can wipe your own dudes (but it's not like you're unable to bring them back).
If you're ever looking for ways to wipe the board without playing Mass Removal which Indestructable can dodge. Dictate of Erebos, Grave Pact, Urborg Justice, Killing Wave, Torment of Hailfire can access more than one target in a turn, and remove them without the need for targeting and benefit you in the ability to just bring a dude back with your commander or any other spell. Though I can't deny that this is a rather rude option, especially with cards like Tergrid, God of Fright Flip, who would just give you control of all creatures your opponent's could sac. You'll gain control of most any board with just Tergrid alone. Then you've got little dudes like Fleshbag Marauder, Demon's Disciple, Plaguecrafter, Merciless Executioner, Gravelighter, Slum Reaper, which all had triggered abilities that react to the formerly listed removal, your commander, Ayara, First of Locthwain, and is prone to getting your targeted even harder, but does result in a powerful and satisfying resolve once you carry the reputation of dishing out a challenge. Depending on overall deck-composition. I don't necessarily recommend all of these; but... just saying Pestilence will get your table's attention every time, draw every bit of removal, and can you activated in response to any cast that isn't a counter. With a single Dark Ritual or Cabal Coffers cast/activation... your table will weep. Sorta.
I don't know if you can directly link decks, but my Halana and Alena, Totally Just Roommates, and my Atla Palani deck's all feature cards printed in their respective planes if not, cards printed in extra supplementary sets like how Odric, Master Tactician was first printed in (M13) but is unable to planeswalk to other planes, and resides on Innistrad; technically the coresets were the base and all else added to their printings and materials, but in reality it felt like the other way around (in my experience), the story blocks made the "core" sets feel like additional content to add to your lore; this being a factor I consider when building some decks. Sacrificial Splicer is a similar case (Except I kept my favorite artifacts from other planes in the deck, I have Ich-Tekik, Salvage Splicer as a partner to Rebbec, Architect of Ascension who are respective enemies in a sense to the Phyrexian cause, one directly influencing the Praetors while the other for a time was using Powerstones to make a barrier strong enough to keep Phyrexia out, and have constructed the deck around ''Compleating'' Rebbec, which locks the board down.
The Lore in magic, is an entire rabbit hole I highly recommend exploring. Pick a plane and start from there. Find a character from that plane and follow their journey. If not by card, by flavor text. If you're into it enough, there are a series of comics out there printed by ARMADA. The Shadow Mage and Dakkon Blackblade are some of my favorite printed stories in magic, which just recently received cards. Likewise was true a couple of years ago for Yawgmoth and Urza who didn't really see their official name's on legendary cards until 2020 (despite having story presence since the beginning). The Weatherlight Crew, new and old, feel like a group of avengers, using their ship to planeswalk because they don't have a spark, and are simply putting together this weapon to stop the ultimate evil, and you can almost feel the stakes mounting as you scroll through the sets they were released in. From Urza's Sage to Invasion, to Time Spiral, to Dominaria. Now Dominaria United. I believe the story of the cards makes the deck that much more meaningful, but there's something to be said about finding the most fun cards and constructing something nuts out of them.

I wasn't terribly excited for the Kotori precon deck, but after I finally got around to reading the Neon Dynasty story (after watching the AMAZING trailer for the set), I'm pretty much determined to have a Future/Artifacts vs. Past/Enchantments set of decks featuring Kotori and Satsuki, the Living Lore. The upgrades you've added here look pretty great but I'm wondering what the ideal amount of vehicles would be for a Kotori deck. Maybe 15 or so? Any more than that and you'd probably be adding in some pretty mediocre ones... I'm not sure. Thoughts?

Rebbec, Architect of Ascension is a pretty good fit for the deck! Now that you mention commander tax, Balan, Wandering Knight does make a lot more sense to me. As far as removal goes, I personally wouldn't go too heavy into creature removal because Sram can take care of most basic creatures (and deathtouch creatures provided he has first/double strike and the dt creature doesn't), but a lot of enchantments like Propaganda and Ghostly Prison can be quite the nuisance. I reccommend Erase and cards like it for dealing with those, but I wouldn't add more than 3 enchantment removal spells.

EyelessStarfish I think Avacyn's Memorial and Darksteel Forge are too mana heavy to fit in the deck but I really like the idea of Leonin Abunas; maybe on a similar note Rebbec, Architect of Ascension could offer similar protection. Gods Willing effects also look like solid cards to look into. I’m not a big fan of Lightning Greaves in this deck since I play such a low number of creatures and if they get stuck on Sram I can’t equip anything on him.
Only reason for Zephyr Boots being in the deck is because it’s a 1 mana equipment so it’s definitely a card I could replace with something better. I don’t think I want to remove Balan, Wandering Knight I play him as a backup wincon when Sram is too expensive to play and/or equip.

Great deck! +1. I have a Ich-Tekik, Salvage Splicer + Rebbec, Architect of Ascension golem tribal, "regular" Commander deck, which is cool and all, but you using Toggo, Goblin Weaponsmith makes me jealous anyway, lol! =D
I like a lot of your card choices, but I feel that I should point out a few things I noticed in your description, if you don't mind:
- In the "About Rocks" section, you mentioned planeswalkers, but there are no planeswalkers in pauper, or pEDH, iirc.
- In that same section you also mentioned letting your commanders use the rocks, however, that will unfortunately NOT generate Commander damage. Commander damage is dealt via combat damage only, therefore any damage your commander does otherwise is just considered regular, boring old damage. Even if that damage is dealt by your Commander during the combat phase, it still wouldn't be Commander damage unless it was dealt to a blocker/player during the "Damage Resolution Step" of the combat phase.
- In the "Golems" section, you said that you usually move Modular counters from your Arcbound creatures to Itchy-Tekky, but unfortunately that also does not work. Arcbound creatures can only put their counters on another artifact creature when they die, and Itchy is not an artifact creature, and therefore cannot be the recipient of those counters.
Beyond that, I like what I see here! Nice first attempt at PDH! If you want to dig deeper into Pauper EDH, check out the Pauper EDH Primer, the Compendium (both of which are maintained by PDH legends Podkomorka and Ruffigan) and my own List of Lists (which contains resources for PDH and every other format).
