Apologies for the very delayed response, Andramalech. I tried out Gyruda, Doom of Depths for quite some time but on many occasions I'd either flip Demons with odd CMC's or nothing at all preventing any additional combo'ing with Be'Lakor, the Dark Master. Solid suggestion, and like I said I gave him the old college try, I just found Gyruda didn't quite make the cut. I really dig your list and it looks like it crushes! One suggestion I have is to add in the UBR artifact lands Seat of the Synod, Vault of Whispers, and Great Furnace (maybe even throw in Darksteel Citadel, too) to increase your artifact count for Mox Opal - the worst thing is not having enough artifacts for Metalcraft and not being able to utilize such a great mana rock. I would add Urza's Incubator as well since Demons aren't a cost-friendly tribe. Have you considered the Grixis Talismans as well? These could be solid additions to up your ramp package (which is already great), though the hard part is always figuring what to take out to free up space. Thanks for your feedback and, once more, sorry for taking so long to get back to you.

Hi grumbledore, I've noticed that quite a few of the following cards are uncategorized, and figured they could fit into some of the following categories you have on site:
Arcane Lighthouse - Removal or Stax, since it removes protective keywords?
Adeline, Resplendent Cathar - Aggro since she triggers on attacks.
Birgi, God of Storytelling Flip - Ramp for front, Draw for back side
Blightstep Pathway Flip - Mana fixing, not sure if all Pathway lands are uncategorized.
Braid of Fire - Ramp?
Den of the Bugbear - Mana Fixing and/or Aggro because of its activated ability.
Fable of the Mirror-Breaker Flip - Ramp from the Goblin Shaman token, Draw/Discard from the 2nd chapter.
Grave Pact - Removal or Stax, since it's an edict effect
Great Furnace and Seat of the Synod - Mana Fixing?
Inquisitorial Rosette - Aggro for its attack trigger and Menace anthem.
Mishra, Claimed by Gix Meld - Aggro, since it's attack based
Needleverge Pathway Flip - Mana fixing
Ogre Battledriver - Aggro since it's a haste anthem.
Scheming Symmetry - Tutor
Signal Pest - Should be Aggro because of Battle Cry, and similar cards with Battle Cry are listed in Aggro.
Skullclamp - This is categorized as Aggro, but not in Draw
Teferi, Master of Time - Draw, Removal for phasing
Wandering Archaic Flip - Stax for front, or ramp/draw for back?
This is not an exhaustive list, but some of the ones I noticed from looking at my own deck categories.

A bunch of your cards aren't modern-legal. They're all the one's highlighted in red, so Archangel of Strife, Exalted Angel, Noble Templar, Wizards of Thay, Decanter of Endless Water, Robe of the Archmagi, Sol Ring, Ascend from Avernus, Fountain of Cho, Seat of the Synod, Promise of Tomorrow, and Reverent Mantra.
You're playing a lot more cards than the 60 required. Any amount of cards over 60 reduces a decks consistency and generally makes it weaker - I'd suggest heavily on trying to cut back to 60 cards.
You're currently playing waaay too many cards as 1-ofs or 2-ofs. This is going to make your deck super inconsistent and clumsy to pilot. You should be aiming for the majority of your deck to be playsets (4-ofs) of cards. A good strategy for new deckbuilders is to pick 9 cards, and run playsets (4-ofs) of each of those (making 36 cards) alongside 24 lands (for a 60 card deck).
Your mana curve is waay too high. Most modern decks can't justify running more than 4 cards (1 playset) costing 4 mana, and seldom run anything costing more than this much mana. You've got a whopping 23 cards costing 4-or-more mana, which is far too much. Going from the above suggestion of picking 9 cards, the mana costs of those cards should look something like 1,1,1,2,2,2,3,3,4.
multimedia on Rise of the Constructs (Budget)

Hey, for those who are interested, I just made the first Phyrexia ONE upgrades which of course one of them is Encroaching Mycosynth, no explanation needed. Another one is Skrelv, Defector Mite, for more repeatable protection and ways to get more damage in with Urza or a Construct. Skrelv adds a new avenue to winning, poison. It will take a lot of time in game, but poison could now be wincon. The One Commander decks have been revealed and the full ONE set will be revealed this week, then I can get a better idea if any other budget cards are worth adding. I'm keeping my eye on the prices of at least three cards that have potential.
Other big changes have happen, but as a result the deck price has gone up, not much though. Skullclamp has been added because it's very good here with Sword of the Meek + Thopter Foundry, doing everything I want in gameplay: creating flying artifact creatures, repeatable draw, sac outlet for artifacts. The Mages have been added: Tribute Mage and Trinket Mage. They add more budget tutors for artifacts. When I control Encroaching Mycosynth they can be repeatable with Master Transmuter and Anrakyr the Traveller, etc. Tutored for by Sphinx Summoner which then gives me more access to assembling the Sword of the Meek + Thopter Foundry + Time Sieve wincon combo.
Some big cuts have happened, The Flesh is Weak and Vedalken Humiliator are gone. This combo was neat, but Weak not being an artifact is not where I want to be. Encroaching Mycosynth replaces Weak and without Weak I don't like Humiliator. I don't like that Humiliator can't trigger it's ability unless it attacks, consistently he does nothing the turn he ETB, that's not helpful if I'm only playing it for attacking. Encroaching Mycosynth does improves this combo, but I still cut it.
The Flesh is Weak + Vedalken Humiliator combo helped Constructs to attack therefore if cutting it I really should add something else to help combat. Vault of the Archangel is deceptively powerful with Constructs, just having it untapped with enough mana to activate it makes my Constructs essentially unblockable because opponents are not going to risk losing all their blockers to deathtouch + menace. To make it easier to get Vault I added Expedition Map. Another one drop artifact that can be repeatable a number of ways here. If Map isn't getting Vault then it can get an Artifact land Seat of the Synod which is quite good with Master Transmuter or get a sac outlet Phyrexia's Core for Wishclaw Talisman, etc.

So, right now, Commander included, you've got 126 cards. Seeing as you're only 26 over the cap, this shouldn't be too bad.
You might also want to include more fetch lands, too. Flooded Strand, Fabled Passage, and Flood Plain all come with a pretty high price tag, but they're all good.
On the other side of the coin, Brokers Hideout, Obscura Storefront, Evolving Wilds, Terramorphic Expanse, Myriad Landscape, Esper Panorama, and Bant Panorama are all cheaper fetch lands that you could use.
Drawing mana late game can be a dead draw a lot of the time, so being able to remove that excess from your deck can be a really nice tool to have, so you can draw just what you want. Maybe take out cards that are fast, but not necessary such as, Skycloud Expanse, Sea of Clouds, Mishra's Factory, and Crawling Barrens.
Potential Land List Show
1x Ancient Den
1x Buried Ruin
1x Mech Hangar
1x Power Depot
1x Flood Plain
Changing it to this (or a list of just 35 mana), should bring us down to 122 cards.
For the rest, I’d say Ondu Inversion Flip, Access Denied, Tezzeret the Seeker, Tezzeret, Artifice Master, Phyrexian Metamorph, Cultivator's Caravan, Invoke Justice, and An Offer You Can't Refuse, all mostly because they’re too expensive.
That leaves you with 109
Okay, so, this decklist is surprisingly tight for being 30~ cards over and I don’t know where to kick the last 9 off. Maybe Artificer Class? Maybe some of the creatures/vehicles? Idunno, good luck.

My first thought after reading the title wasn't fetchlands. I was thinking Seat of the Synod and friends and affinity...
WarpedZerghead on Sen Triplets

What I found worked best for a Sen Triplets deck is using blue and white for control so you can have your artifacts do all the work getting combos into play.
Stop players from stopping your fun: the match is yours and they simply haven't realized it yet. Dispatch quickly sets you up for a nasty rebuttal in between whichever counter-spell you choose to deploy. Vindicate, Mortify and Fracture (to name a few..) will help them learn that you mean business.
Utilizing Esper colors, Black is the tutor-for-all, Blue is great artifact tutoring and White for some artifact but also enchantments. Good enchantments to have on hand are Paradox Haze (which you have) and Artificer's Intuition. Intuition is good because you can use it to get a Sol Ring in hand, another cost artifact you might have, or, any of the following "artifacts that cost :
- Ancient Den
- Vault of Whispers
- Seat of the Synod
- Darksteel Citadel
- Goldmire Bridge
- Mistvault Bridge
- Razortide Bridge
This cards makes for great and tutoring in a non-green deck as it can be used again and again and there are quite a few you can fetch. Another option is Tezzeret the Seeker that can get you your lands by using the -X ability for 0 to put them into play, unless you want to get a different combo/ramp artifact instead.
Besides the obvious Vampiric Tutor an Demonic Tutor for your get-anything option, there are many options still available for finding the cards you need that are artifact type.
If you are ok with losing a few artifacts, Kuldotha Forgemaster is the ticket as I will sometimes even sac my artifact lands to get better beef on the ground. Otherwise, Sphinx Summoner will get you something in hand and provide you with a flier and a card. Some new cards that play well alongside the Trinket Mage are the Tribute Mage and Trophy Mage cards. Trinket gets you your Sol Ring or another artifact where Tribute and Trophy get you and , respectively.
Artifact-related lands you want to look into are Inventors' Fair for artifact tutoring and Buried Ruin to get something back into your hand from the graveyard.
With such a vast array of artifact-type cards - especially mana ramp - you'll want an Unwinding Clock to be sure to keep everyone on edge.
Combos? We've got combos!
This is my new favorite infinite trigger set using Dross Scorpion + Myr Turbine + any of the following sacrifice outlets:
Steal their Kool Aid
Your Commander will lock a player out of your turn but it also allows you to play their hands. This is a good time to drop any lands they might have in their hands to keep them starved and likewise cast their good ramp spells to get you ahead or continue to lock them out. In the event they finally are able to cast something, you can respond with a Desertion counter-spell (mana permitting) and stick whatever creature/artifact they were trying to cast back in their Vault of Whispers. Thada Adel, Acquisitor and Daxos of Meletis are also nasty foes that puts an opponents deck against themselves. Bribery and Acquire are a malicious and personal jab that should only be used at every chance you get assert your dominance on the board and your opponents deck.
All these cards stand alone from what you can do to further abuse you opponents with just your commanders abilities: it is a multi-pronged deck that throws multiple threats at your enemies making them scramble to deal with one thing while still getting overrun by another.
TheoryCrafter on Mon AMyr (Advice / Thoughts?)

Have you considered Inspiring Statuary? This will be useful for your nonartifact spells-especially the ones with "X" on their mana costs. If you add it to your deck other cards to consider are Introduction to Annihilation and Scour from Existence to deal with the Karn, the Great Creator/Mycosynth Lattice combo.
I would also suggest the Artifact lands Darksteel Citadel, Power Depot, Seat of the Synod and Treasure Vault. Not only can you make multiple copies with Portal Prototype, but boost your affinity. And you can't go wrong with Inventors Fair in your deck. You have a mana source and a tutor for ready at a minute's notice to use if you turn out to need it.
Stoic Rebuttal's metalcrafter ability will effectively make it the same cost as Counterspell.
Thank you for reading me out. I hope it helps. Happy Hunting!
