Hey I've ran daretti since he was released. He was my first commander. I gotta say Springjack Pasture can be awesome. Daretti, because he's artifact focused, doesn't need a lot of colored mana, so you are really free with your mana base and can run all sorts of utility lands. This deck looks good. I like springjack as a mana sink to dump mana into kind of like a shitty mana battery. Then i got little goats i can sac with ashnods, or with springjack, or just chump blockers for Daret. It also combos with Trading Post. Goatland. It's great. It also lets you build up a board without building up a board, which can be really helpful in situations where you don't want to play your hand because it will draw hate or be very threatening, or there is hate on the board that prevents you from playing your hand, and it's ramp in a way too.
you can also cut the fetch's, throw in stranglehold, then in the fetch's slots put in Tomb of the Spirit Dragon, or Phyrexia's Core, Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle, and some more mountains. Basics are strong, it's harder to deal with them. If you're going a stax route, Hammerheim is good too.
And i know this is a little convoluted, but, Kurkesh, Onakke Ancient can combo with Voltaic Key for infinite mana the same way as Rings of Brighthearth with Gilded Lotus if you want to run it, or, Mycosynth Lattice or some other way to let you spend mana of any color. I don't have those effects, so i'm using lotus, kurkesh, and key. Even if you aren't going infinite with it, it lets you make an absurd amount of colorless mana

Feels like a Goblin Bombardment is a good choice here. Phyrexian Altar if you are not worried about budget. Blasting Station, Trading Post, Spawning Pit, Altar of Dementia, Claws of Gix, Shivan Harvest, Thermopod for some other 'janky' options. Hope this helps :)

If you're looking to win through commander damage and attacking, an Aggravated Assault or Aurelia, the Warleader would help out a bit. Also Stoneforge Mystic and Stonehewer Giant can help you grab some equipment a bit more effectively.
Though a bit slow, Nahiri, the Harbinger can work with your discard and artifact/creature searching too.
Trading Post is also another way to discard and use your artifacts for value too.

Good artifact-based card draw to note:
Skullclamp - the gold-standard for token decks. Legendary power. If you have too many anthems it drops off greatly in power.
Courier's Capsule - much better with heavy graveyard recursion
Idol of Oblivion - the draw is free, which is nice. Very strong for two mana
Tome of Legends - should be excellent since your commander can usually attack with impunity. Bummer it's getting more expensive. It's a good card though so it's unsurprising.
Midnight Clock - this card is fantastic. Secret is getting out so if you're on the fence definitely buy some for your collection. The reprint dropped its price. Also, Eldraine card for the flavor.
Slate of Ancestry - repeatable, but sometimes unreliable--like if you need to recover from a board wipe. Excellent card but potentially not better than Bident of Thassa, Recon Mission, and Coastal Piracy. Better in decks that don't run Blue. I have it in my Goblin deck.
Trading Post - do it all!
Well of Lost Dreams would be good with your commander, but so are lots of others. Probably not better than other effects in this deck.
Farsight Mask - draws a card for each creature that attacks you, and more. Five mana is a lot though. I think this card is underrated, but you kinda don't want to be attacked in the first place, right? Great on a budget.
Tamiyo's Journal - fantastic for decks that care about the number of artifacts you control. You only have a few of these effects though.
Bolas's Citadel - massive, massive power. Honestly surprised this card isn't more expensive. Might be worth buying just for your collection. Your commander's lifelink can help fuel it. You can also sac faerie tokens as a win-con. Triple-Black isn't effortless to cast, but once you have six mana you could probably swing it.
Coveted Jewel - chaotic and fun. Your flyers can steal it back easily. Like the Monarch mechanic, it can keep the heat off you if your opponents try to steal it from eachother.
Staff of Nin - oh how the mighty have fallen. This card used to be a staple like, six years ago. Not much point in running it in a deck with access to Blue and Black colors. Still, it's an artifact.
The Magic Mirror - Big upside but hard to cast. Bonus points for being an Eldraine card!

Some cards which I think should be cut because I think they are not too great or have fallen out of love with them are: Inkwell Leviathan, Jhoira's Toolbox, Myr Battlesphere, Myr Enforcer, Scarecrone, Willbender, Brittle Effigy, Darksteel Ingot, Dreamstone Hedron, Lux Cannon (unless you have a way of getting counters more quickly), Staff of Nin, Tower of Fortunes, Trading Post, Dismiss, Dissipate, and Dream Fracture.

Asmo does have some neat setups with artifact synergy - especially with engineer offering resurrection.
Part of the reason I've found asmo a lot easier in budget brews is cycling lands - either Sojourner's Companion and artifact taplands or cycling derserts.
And as always, a 1-of Trading Post is exceptionally good with food tokens.
