Great deck overall!

I would have thought you'd be able to get away with less lands, like 20, instead of 22. Personally i'd be dropping 2 lands and a Brass Squire for the remaining Sigarda's Aid and Steelshaper's Gift you currently have in the sideboard (they just seem like straight-up improvements, and must-haves for mainboard).
I'm surprised to see you running Plague Myr instead of Necropede . I would have thought you'd be wanting to swing with the infect creature every turn, and so the mana the Myr provides isn't great? I could be wrong?
I was expecting to see some Apostle's Blessing in the sideboard to protect your dudes.
I don't think you need to run more than a single copy of Argentum Armor , as you can search for it when needed, and there's just too many times you're going to get stuck with it in hand. I'd go down to a single copy so that you can run a more toolboxy weapon-set to best deal with the current situation. Both Maul of the Skyclaves and Sword of Light and Shadow both seem like strong other cards to run in the deck as 1-ofs.
How much value does Brass Squire actually provide? They seem quite slow in a deck that should be trying to close out the game fast. At the fastest, they can equip something on turn 4 (3 with ramp), when your opponent has probably already stabilized. I think Giver of Runes could better suite this slot, although to keep your artifact count high for Cranial Plating maybe some mix of Signal Pest and Welding Jar works better.

Derevi is a great choice for the general. The strategy I would go for personally when it comes to Derevi is low-cost evasive creatures, Coastal Piracy effects, and land auras like Fertile Ground . The little dudes hit to draw you cards and untap your lands. This leads to snowballing damage as you are able to play more small doods, leading to exponentially more damage, draw power, and mana each turn.
Here are some other cards that would fit with such a strategy: Signal Pest , Topplegeist , Bident of Thassa , Reconnaissance , Ohran Frostfang , Edric, Spymaster of Trest , True Conviction , Wild Growth , Wolfwillow Haven , Soltari Foot Soldier , Gudul Lurker , Mist-Cloaked Herald , Slither Blade , Triton Shorestalker

I actually researched for A LOT of possible cards, I just can't realize wich path I should follow: control or creature focused. Since my intention isn't having a graveyard populated with artifacts (maybe with spells I used to control my opponent) I think Mirrodin Besieged doesn't fit, and Sai, Master Thopterist (as Academy Ruins ) don't match my intended budget.
To be fair: I gave it more thought and decided to focus more on control, so Ornithopter and Signal Pest are kind of redundant to add. Although, RIDDLE SMITH and Vedalken Archmage seem like viable drawing options besides Reverse Engineer . But there's a problem: Scourglass . That would make Riddle Smith and Vedalken Archmage a waste. Besides the fact that they're not artifacts so they don't benefit from my bonuses (both the +1/+1 and the casting reduction cost).

Mirrodin Besieged / Sai, Master Thopterist seems to be a nice way to get lots of artifact 1/1's... Ornithopter / Signal Pest are pretty classic cheap/spam creatures for casting spells and building up affinity... Riddlesmith / Vedalken Archmage seem to be nice draw payoffs.... Academy Ruins is also really worth considering with Ichor Wellspring and similar.

It's cool how you built a deck entirely out of cards you got from variety boxes. I think you might like these if you wanted to snag some singles for the deck: Mask of Memory , Tome of Legends , Kongming, "Sleeping Dragon" , Celestial Crusader , Archetype of Courage , Battlefield Raptor , Encampment Keeper , Glorious Anthem , Heraldic Banner , Signal Pest , Accorder Paladin , Rhox Veteran , Marshal's Anthem , Always Watching , Windbrisk Heights , Shefet Dunes
