brandonplaysmagic Thanks, man!
I have not thought about Tireless Tracker at all, so thanks for pointing that out. I agree with what you have to say here, and this might actually work out better than the Guardian Project I've been thinking about.
I had Horn of Greed on my original setup, which run Azusa, Lost but Seeking, Howling Mine, Temple Bell, Crucible of Worlds, Exploration, Oracle of Mul Daya, etc. but I found that this deck's strength comes from drawing a sick amount of cards in one burst and then having a ton of mana to cast as much as possible. Even without this group-hug drawing package, already in a 3-player table, Multani is drawing a sick amount of cards, so instead I opted for ramp to drop him faster.
Thanks for your feedback and suggestions. Funny you mentioned the card-drawing as this is what I am currently working on .

This is really cool! I actually have a deck that goes all-in on everyone drawing cards too - though it is mono-blue and, very unfortunately, does not have any snakes :( I love that you did this in Temur though! So many decks just use Nekusar, the Mindrazer instead and I really like that you didn't go that route!
Are you looking for any more universal-draw sources? Font of Mythos , Horn of Greed , Otherworld Atlas , Temple Bell , and classic Howling Mine are all artifact-based draws that I use! I noticed though that you might instead want more explosive draws instead of the more drawn-out, upkeep-based sources like these. Fruition seems like a fantastic card and is much more explosive! I've never played it, just because of its price, but it seems like it could be incredibly good with your build here. Jace's Archivist might also result in a healthy boom in your snake population :)
If you are in the market for pay-offs, Iron Maiden , Viseling , and Psychosis Crawler are the main win-cons in my own deck. Even if they don't take out a player, they might be able to dish out a lot of damage with your synergies!

Fun idea! Not sure how married you are to Torbrand as your commander, but Magda, Brazen Outlaw follows with the artifact matters themes, or Purphoros, Bronze-Blooded could be useful to cheat out powerful artifact silver bullets!
If you do stick with the Torbrand train, Pyrohemia can be fits to deal with, lightning bolting every creature and player at instant speed becomes a nightmare!
Trash for Treasure is a fun one as well. Since you have so much artifact recursion, Mindslaver can be a "win con" that can stall your opponents out as you mill them. Memory Jar works in a similar way, able to "mill" 7 cards while setting up your graveyard.
Could also be worth considering some wheel effects. Things like Wheel of Fortune Wheel of Misfortune Wheel of Fate Reforge the Soul Magus of the Wheel and Molten Psyche could be viewed as "mill 7" cards that also set up your own graveyard for recursion. Along that same line of thinking Howling Mine Temple Bell and Font of Mythos can be seen as additional mill effects.
Otherworld Atlas also seems like it could be really fun in your deck! Also, in any deck running the untap keys, I'd recommend giving Thran Dynamo and Gilded Lotus a try, as it can make your mana production explode!
Some food for thought! Really like the idea and direction of your deck!

My Kynaios and Tiro deck involves mass ramp and card draw. I also add lots of pillowfort to protect myself from unprovoked attacks.
As a surprise win strategy, I use this combo that seems relatively harmless at first:
- Temple Bell or Otherworld Atlas (tap each player draws a card)
- Mind Over Matter (discard a card, then untap target permanent)
- Kozilek, Butcher of Truth , Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre , or Blightsteel Colossus (gets shuffled into your library when sent to the graveyard from anywhere)
Infinitely make everyone draw until they lose the game, except you because you keep sending cards back to your library.

As for what to cut I would say Asylum Visitor , Syphon Mind (it's good but for 4 mana it doesn't seem worth it), I hate to say this but maybe Sensei's Divining Top , Temple Bell (It does give you card advantage but it also gives everyone else card advantage), Wheel of Torture (At best it can only deal 2 damage).
That's all I have time for now but I will try to recommend more later

I have replaced Arcane Encyclopedia with Temple Bell , which did not affect the deck's average converted mana cost, but will save me mana over time, since the ability of the bell has no cost to activate it, and the fact that it causes all players to draw cards works with the "group hug" theme of this deck.

I like those suggestions!
My particular meta isn't too artifact/enchantment heavy, but Krosan Grip is still a great card!
Personally I'll keep Divine Reckoning over Hour of Revelation for now, I'm still testing. But I play in big groups and a three mana "screw you" is definitely a thing! Unfortunately it hits my permanents as well, so that puts it as a maybe for me.
