This is a sweet deck. May I recommend Tome of Legends, Scrap Trawler and Breya's Apprentice as ways to get extra cards? I find myself running out of steam often in red/white without some sort of card engine, and these help immensely. I've never seen Rupture before, and it looks like a sweet addition. If it's good, Chandra's Ignition has also done work for me.

Some of the low cost graveyard recursion cards like Scrap Trawler, Junk Diver, Myr Retriever, and Workshop Assistant can help keep you going late game when someone removes your combo pieces / best creatures.
Nettlecyst is a great new card that gives you another big body for cheap, definitely better than Pennon Blade, or great along side it.

Thanks rb701 for youre comment!
But im not sure if i just should remove Blinkmoth Urn since i never really needed it and the deck is running pretty well at the moment.
Any other ideas what to Change?
At the Moment im thinking of something like this:
1 x Tormod's Crypt Graveyard hate
1 x Grave Pact Creatures
2 x Altar of the Brood more mill
1 x Profane Memento lifegain against aggro
4 x Feed the Swarm
1 x Genesis Chamber

Wabbajacke welcome to modern!
As far as land count, i’d suggest around 23 for what you’re currently running.
Personally, i’d be adding in 4 Village Rites and 4 Mishra's Bauble . Both those cards will help you cycle through your deck a lot faster and get your engine running consistently. It also means you probably only need 21-22 lands.
As far as things to drop, you can probably do the following:
Duress isn’t a great card, and probably sideboard at best. There are better hand-disruption cards that could be worth running, but i’m not sure this deck wants them mainboard.
You probably only need 3 copies of Grinding Station . With the above-mentioned draw you’re likely to find one, and you don’t need two.
You probably only need 3 copies of Scrap Trawler , for similar reasons.
personally I think you only need two copies of Sly Requisitioner , because its hard to get into play until you’re already in a good position.

Right off the bat you can cut 2 lands, possibly more after play testing. But 39 is entirely too many.
Esper Sentinel probably doesn't do enough without ways to pump his power.
Meteor Golem is expensive to cast and doesn't seem like something you would want to reanimate with all of the other targets.
Boros Charm usually doesn't do enough in Commander.
Endless Atlas doesn't seem like it would be turned on enough of the time to be worth it.

However, with Metalwork Colossus because when the Monkey Cage enters and with Ashnod's Altar that is a total of 8 mana, then add in Nim Deathmantle Metalwork Colossus can be retuned to hand and cast for free, creating 11 Apes when sacking the Monkey Cage .
Think we are on to something here.

Alright, colorless on a budget. Here we go.
The lands are fine. Looks like basic Wastes really need a reprint.
I'm counting 19 mana artifacts. If I cut those above a mana value of 3, that's still 16. Plus a few big mana Edlrazis on top. Mana-wise you definitely won't have issues, though we can optimize the selection a little. Manakin and Foundry Inspector have priority over Kozilek's Channeler, Walking Atlas and Warden of Geometries. Sisay's Ring is a second copy of Ur-Golem's Eye.
You have Myr Retriever and artifact synergy cards in there. Consider adding Scrap Trawler too. If you want to get infinite mana, Spawning Pit and Thermal Navigator can make it possible. Might cause some salt on casual tables though. Workshop Assistant is pretty much the same card as Junk Diver and fits in there as well.
Cards that I would cut are: Kozilek's Pathfinder, Ulamog's Despoiler, Ruin Processor, Desolation Twin, Deathless Behemoth
Fun budget cards to consider: Nevinyrral's Disk , Mimic Vat , Duplicant , Transmogrifying Wand , Chaos Wand , Tormod's Crypt or Scrabbling Claws , Sunset Pyramid , Darksteel Pendant , Ichor Wellspring , Shimmer Myr , Crashing Drawbridge .
Aside from those, I imagine this deck wants Mind's Eye a lot, but it's not a cheap card.

Hallo Spell_Slam! Thank you for your comment!
This is still a prototype for the deck and some cards you mentioned are continuously going in and out from the list. I do not always use the live edit tool to switch cards from main to maybe and often, when i take out a card, i forget to add it back again at the maybeboard. Daretti, Gamble and the Dynamo are among them and they're on the radar for sure.
When i added Path to Exile , i considered that this deck perhaps prefers to give away lands rather than life, since it wins through combat damage. I tested Dispatch , but the risk is that it will become useless if I am too far behind for some reason.
I'm not totally sold on Scrap Trawler either, as maybe i prefer having things in my graveyard more than i want to have them in my hand.
Idol of Oblivion has worked really well in all my tests, i'm inclined to think i'll keep it, but i agree on the Bauble and the Phoenix though. They're in only until I decide what to replace them with (the Dynamo, probably). Thank you for your suggestions, that was very kind of you!
BransBranflakes, thank you for stopping by!
3 Drinks are better than 3 cards for sure, and with Anointed Procession and/or Illusionist's Bracers on the field, that makes for 5-7 drinks. Now you just have to figure out how to make the opponent pay for them too!
I thank you for the degenerative suggestions, but i'm trying to keep up with my group's meta and to be a good boy (a little). GoOoOOolems!
Hallo again discipleofgary73!
Inspiring Statuary is intresting, but i play very few non-artifact spells in this deck and they're already relatively cheap. Glimmervoid and Summoning Station were noted though!
