Shimmer Myr for instant speed shenanigans and Chief Engineer to ramp

Monomanamaniac on Bosh throws a fit

So you might think if adding even more mana rocks like Mind Stone, Thran Dynamo, Hedron Archive, Worn Powerstone, Blinkmoth Urn, Everflowing Chalice, Gilded Lotus, Palladium Myr, or Iron Myr. You should be ramping as much as possible, you could even consider Extraplanar Lens if budget is no concern. You could consider cards like Myr Retriever, Goblin Welder, Buried Ruin, Goblin Engineer, Junk Diver, purphorous, bronze-blooded or Daretti, Scrap Savant to bring artifacts back from the graveyard. You could consider Mystic Forge, Planar Bridge, or Kuldotha Forgemaster for getting artifacts out of your deck and onto the battlefield. Darksteel Forge, Soul of New Phyrexia, or Eldrazi Monument so you're killing your artifacts only when you want to. Unwinding Clock it's good if you combine it with flash from Shimmer Myr or Vedalken Orrery. Ugin, the Ineffable or Foundry Inspector to reduce the casting cost of your artifacts without affecting the cmc. You could go full ham on some big artifact creatures like Myr Battlesphere, Meteor Golem, Duplicant, Ancient Stone Idol, Mycosynth Golem, Darksteel Colossus, Blightsteel Colossus, Platinum Angel, or Platinum Emperion just to name a few. Other ideas might be Hellkite Tyrant to steal your opponents artifacts Mycosynth Lattice to turn your non-artifacts into artifacts, Illusionist's Bracers or Kurkesh, Onakke Ancient to copy bosh's abilities, Swiftfoot Boots and/or Lightning Greaves to protect your big guy, Voltaic Key or Manifold Key to untap your rocks, or Mind's Eye or incidental card draw. Some lands to think about are Myriad Landscape, Darksteel Citadel, and Phyrexia's Core but not much else.

As per suggestions to take out : Catalyst Elemental, Destructive Digger, Forge Armor, Walking Atlas, Nahiri's Wrath, Wily Goblin (use Dockside Extortionist), Azor's Gateway  Flip, Furious Rise, Generator Servant, Pirate's Pillage, Scarecrone, Filigree Familiar just to name a few.

I would like to start by saying I'm not trying to say your deck is bad, just trying to give you a lot of ideas to go off of and pointing out things that don't really go with the theme of the deck, which is ramp super hard, drop a bunch of big threats, drop bosh and kill opponents. Secondly, I am not a competitive deck builder by any means, I just use the data I have and suggest the things I like. I actually like seeing gosh in the command zone.

enpc yeah I had considered Shimmer Myr but I went with orrery because I don't constantly have haste enablers for my commander. I alsojust happened to have a few of them sitting around in a binder collecting dust. I haven't seen Scout's Warning in a LONG time lol. I may consider those in time, after I pick me up a copy of Sword of Fire and Ice (aka my whole next month's budget).

DeinoStinkus always in need of a god cleaning lol

Vedalken Orrery is pretty cool. I personally run Shimmer Myr in my list, but Orrery seems really strong here. As a side note, you can also look at Scout's Warning if you want additional ways to flash in Balan (plus at worst it's a cantrip).

I have some recommendations!

Okay, I have quite the meiny of recommendations, wherethrough you must buckle up and keep your hands and feet inside of the vehicle.

Now, Whir of Invention fetches utility artifacts for the sake of murdering fools.

I have three here. Bident of Thassa, Coastal Piracy, and Reconnaissance Mission each draw a few million cards. It is difficult to lose after that.

Now, Urza ramps, draws, and never ends. He is oft zero mana given the remunerations he provides once he hits the table. Coming with a 12/12 doesn't hurt either.

Academy Ruins brings back what you need and... wait, that's about it. It's a land, so a free addition.

Ichor Wellspring! With a sacrifice outlet it draws quite a few cards, and it leastwise cycles itself. Add tother two I mentioned as well.

I do prefer Nihil Spellbomb to Tormod's Crypt, for this one draws.

So, it mayn't be an artifact, but I still put it in any deck with both blue and black. Let me introduce you to the most unknown yet broken card in the format, Unfulfilled Desires. Ths filters through 10 to 15 cards every game, filling the bin for graveyard chicanery and allowing for mana efficiency. Run it. It's so good and but a few dimes! xD

Shimmer Myr? Wherefore art thou, Shimmyr?

Typically I have quite a few suggestions on what I would ablate, but the current decklist seems quite solid. Well done on that front!

Wait, I found one. Diabolic Tutor finds anything yet is four mana. I'd just prefer a draw spell, but this relies upon personal preference.

Have a lovely day and may fortune betide!

shwanerz88 I actually ended up cutting Voltaic Key and Shimmer Myr due to their redundancy with other cards in the deck (especially since other than the combos, it's shtick is that Karn makes artifacts into beaters). I will consider Expedition Map and Ugin, the Ineffable though.

I've always wanted to go up against a Karn deck and yours looks like a lot of fun. You've got all utility lands so I recommend adding a Expedition Map so you can tutor up specific lands you may need.
Ugin, the Ineffable can really help make everything in your deck cheaper. Duplicant is a removal spell and a clone in one, and Voltaic Key is a good addition in most artifact decks. You've already got an Orrery but if you want some redundancy Shimmer Myr will give you extra flash

jconeil1988 on Alela, Tinker Faerie Extraordinaire

Noelqkazoo Solid suggestion. I'm super proud of this build. It's my main. I've been working with her since she came out, starting with a faerie tribal build with a artifact anthem subtheme. Since then I've slowly been incorporating more and more artifacts. This is truly my homebrew. It morphed into more artifact creatures, and finally to where it is today. I've always had the idea to go with Tezzeret, but just recently pulled the trigger on him. I've watched a few deck techs on her and used edhrec, and it was kinda cool to see how artifacts slowly were added to the deck since most people went with enchantments at first. Because of this, I've actually shy'd away from looking at enchantments too much and missed Leyline of Anticipation I had planned on working on getting a Vedalken Orrery. the Leyline would definitely allow me to put more priority elsewhere until I can get the Orrery and makes a great compliment to Shimmer Myr
