Grinning Totem, Snake Basket and maybe Living Armor are fun artifacts your boss could abuse.

Pit Trap? Solemn Simulacrum? Gauntlets of Chaos?

Creatures with "Modular" might be fun since you have a ton of artifact creatures to get counters. I see the Crusher in there but the cheaper 1 or 2 mana guys might be more useful as chump blockers and free counters.

Mobile Garrison could give your boss an extra untap.

Ah yes, pay rent for the month or buy a Magic deck - easy choice! Buy a Magic deck.
Okay, mild ribbing aside, your deck makeup is a bit off. Looking at only creatures, you’ve got 4 three-drops, 2 four-drops, and 1 five-drop. Now, I know that given your commander’s ability, you don’t want to hit creatures, but you need to be able to keep your opponents from swinging in and just killing you. You could do that with removal, but all you’ve got is Comet Storm and Expansion / Explosion.
I’d say that you need spells or artifacts like Krenko's Command and Snake Basket that create tokens and more removal, such as Narset's Reversal and Electrodominance. Board wipes like Blasphemous Act will help keep the board under control, too. One last thing: Helm of the Host. Nothing like getting more retrievers to fetch your opponents’ cards!

What do you think of Snake Basket and Phyrexian Processor ? With Arcum Dagsson , it almost becomes easy to win.

@GeistKing I agree with multimedia. Ezuri is a bit more expensive but is a much more efficient engine for what you'd like. You're only losing out on some card draw, but you're in blue anyway so you're good on that. I'd also stray away from landfall effects and stick to one main theme (tokens), and maybe a little sub theme (+1/+1 counters) just because its a budget deck. Obviously include staple ramp and card draw spells. Budget token generation is hard for me to help with because I'm not worried about budget myself. You could add Orochi Hatchery or Snake Basket . Chasm Skulker and Reef Worm come to mind, as well. I know it's expensive but you cant really run Green tokens without at least Parallel Lives . Doubling Season would be a game changer in an Ezuri token deck but to each their own.

Also, my own Commander suggestion, if you may: if you really like the whole Biomass Mutation + hella tokens idea, then you should look into Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer . Tons of shenanigans. Almost kinda sorta a Biomass Mutation on a stick but better imo. And you get to do things like replicate your creatures with Quasiduplicate or something, then turn all your tokens into whatever you copied. My personal favorite is Scuttling Doom Engine + a sac outlet. Or just hang out and dare someone to board wipe lol. Also replicating Hellrider or Inferno Titan , then turning your tokens into either of them is great fun. For you at least, not anyone else lmao. Games are always different and diverse with Brudiclad and I bet he can be a decent budget commander. You can take a look at my Brudiclad deck if you'd like, its on my page. It's not budget in the least, but it will give you an idea of how the deck goes.

Goblin Offensive could be fun for later in the game or board wipe recovery and Snake Basket is a lot of fun (wish it were instant speed, but good anyway).

Why are you running Mycosynth Wellspring and Evolving Wilds? It only looks for basic lands, you have none. Run Expedition Map if you want to find the urza lands. if it's for Throne of Geth, run 0 drops and the artifact lands.

I suggest checking out my Artifact Deck. It's based around Snake Basket and Coat of Arms. Works amazing even a cheap version is strong.
