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

I play mostly janky artifact decks.
To make up for unbanning ironworks, ban trawler.
Ban the gak! Faithless Looting is also a possibility.

I would say the power level of this deck is a solid 7; your deck is focused and has a game plan with very few cards deviating from the plan. However your deck contains sub optimal cards, cards that do not fit the game plan, and a high average CmC. I would also say your deck is lacking card draw and alternate win conditions.
With caring about how many artifacts you have on board I'm not sure why Nev's Disk is in here as it's symmetrical. It might be better to play something like All Is Dust to make sure you keep your artifacts around and are still able to wipe the board.
Because of Akiri's keywords why not run Trove of Temptation ? It produces artifact tokens, it ramps you, and it makes a creature suicide into Akiri every turn from each opponent. Her vigilance lets you be aggressive and still have the best blocker.
Here is a lost of just some powerful artifact loving cards you may have missed: Vedalken Engineer , The Antiquities War , Cranial Plating , Kuldotha Forgemaster , Phyrexian Metamorph , Thirst for Knowledge , Stoic Rebuttal , Scrap Trawler .
The largest glaring weakness I noticed is your lack of interaction with your opponent's game plan and that your only win condition relies on combat. Because of the low interaction something as simple as a Peacekeeper or Kataki, War's Wage stops your deck dead in it's tracks.

This is VERY convoluted but I believe this works.
Arcane Adaptation and choose goblin
Your mana reducer makes them all cost less because they’re all goblins.
Sac the Myr Retriever for from the altar. Then sac your changelling and then the Junk Diver - the order is important. When Junk diver dies it will trigger its own ability and the Scrap Trawler ability letting you return both other artifacts to your hand. At this point you’ll have floating from the altar. Cast the retriever, cast the changeling for free, sac the retriever to return junk diver and repeat in a loop. With all the death and etb triggers you want.
