Trading Post, Krenko, Mob Boss and Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs all look like potential includes

You could run some Threats still in line with your them:

Wurmcoil Engine

Kaldra Compleat

Karn, the Great Creator: I love this tool box card but it depends on how people feel about the 10 card sideboard, it isn't officially allowed exactly but cEDH may change that. you can fill the board (10 is generally the accepted number I have seen for the "side") with situationally useful artifacts.

The only other thing I would think of is maybe considering a bit more control like

Dovin's Veto

Render Silent


Swan Song

to give a bit more protection for your strats

Rakdos's Return is always funny but may or may not work here

Sevinne's Reclamation could give some recursion Academy Ruins and Trading Post Too

Aetherflux Reservoir and Time Sieve with Thopter Assembly if you want some combo wombo

Daretti, Ingenious Iconoclast seems to fit the theme

I am not a fan of the wellsprings, they do fit the them somewhat but can seem dead at times.

I had a couple of others that were in mind but lost them, I will comment if I think of them

I had a Teshar deck but my group hated it because of how durdley it was. I loved that deck though! Anyways, I'm surprised that there is no Trading Post , which was one of my favorite cards in the entire deck due to how versatile it was. Other than that, super super sweet deck!

If you're sacrificing as a result of a spell or ability, as opposed to paying the cost for one like with Trading Post , you can respond to the spell or ability while it's on the stack, but once it resolves you have to sacrifice the permanent. For instance, if you opponent casts Soul Shatter to make you sacrifice your most expensive creature or planeswalker, you can use Crystal Shard to bounce the most expensive creature before the soul shatter resolves. However, once the soul shatter resolves, your most expensive creature or planeswalker left on the battlefield is going in the graveyard, no ifs ands or buts.

When you sacrifice something, it goes to the graveyard without a chance for response. This means that you can't bounce something that's being sacrificed, nor can you sacrifice it to another effect, such as if you had a second Trading Post in play.

Evening, if I Sacrifice a creature to Trading Post 3rd ability to return an artifact to my hand, but bounce the sacrificed creature back to my hand using Crystal Shard before it hits the graveyard, do I get the artifact from my graveyard to my hand from the Trading Post ability, or does it no longer see the creature to sacrifice and pay the cost?

For artifact recursion, Trash for Treasure is a useful one for cheating out big artifacts from the graveyard, and is a flavor win as you can literally trade your treasure tokens in for trash... err... your other artifacts XD Also, Goblin Welder is another classic one that can do the same thing. Trading Post is another flexible option, as I can see your deck being able to use most of the options. Though, I'll admit, I usually use these cards to cheat into play big artifact creatures that I've dumped into the graveyard, so you might want to consider this as a side option.

In terms of red artifact tutors, it's a little dicy, as most of the decent options use either blue or black. Inventors' Fair could work once you get all the needed artifacts on board. Some creature options also exist (if you're just looking to make a weird "illegal" fun deck.) Treasure Mage Trophy Mage Tribute Mage and Trinket Mage can fetch out needed artifacts, as well as having limited synergy with Alesha, Who Smiles at Death . Though looking at your current list, I don't see too many bomb cards that would be useful with recuring your artifacts. Maybe look into adding something like Solemn Simulacrum or Golos, Tireless Pilgrim ? In red you have things like Gamble , Hoarding Dragon and Goblin Engineer .

Hmmm... Sliver decks, while fun to pilot, either are dealt with early and fizzle out, or they end up overwhelming if you don't keep their creatures in check. If you're leaning more into the 5 color splashability casual deck, Rakdos Charm is a good catch-all card that deals with a lot of strategies. Even a well timed Blasphemous Act can slow them down. In your current build, I see you do run some interaction, but I think you'll find there are some more consistent better options out there!
