Oh, and sorry this is coming in bursts. I'm just noticing one thing at a time. The other thing that will vastly improve this deck is getting some of the tap lands out. Unfortunately, any dual land touching blue is absurdly expensive, so I won't lecture you on how a fetch/shock/ABU dual manabase is always correct. There are some budget options, though:
Shocks were reprinted relatively recently, so investing in Blood Crypt, Steam Vents, and Watery Grave now will improve your deck's speed, and if you run the slow fetches Bad River, Mountain Valley, and Rocky Tar Pit, the mana should be very consistent, as well. Drowned Catacomb, Dragonskull Summit, Choked Estuary, and Foreboding Ruins also like more basic land types. Grixis Panorama and Ash Barrens are nice, because they can come down untapped or fix!
Temple of the False God is garbage. Being stuck on 3 lands and Temple until turn 6 will slow you down. Yep.

No worries, but yes generally commander doesn't actually use sideboards or wish lists, but then it is also generally a casual format so you can talk with the other players in your playgroup to see if they're okay with having a "sideboard" to swap things out with. Depending on your group, they may even be okay with you using normally banned cards if you ask them about using them. As long as it's not some kind of official event or some such, then it's not a big deal as long as everyone is okay with it. Communication with your group is always key to a good time!
As for the artifacts and other colorless spells go, as long as the costs don't have the symbol but instead have the numbers in the cost (ex: ) then that's considered "generic mana", which can be paid by any kind of mana regardless of color. Wastes are generally used for very specific cards and abilities, most notably for something like Kozilek, the Great Distortion . In this deck, there isn't anything that requires mana, so the Wastes are kind of... well, wasted. Dual lands and other lands that can give you multiple colored mana are extremely important for any multi-colored deck. It's not bad to have some basic lands, but they can only take you so far without the right ramp cards to bring the colors you need out, and without green that becomes much more difficult. I'd definitely swap in a Command Tower , and given the cost of the deck I'd imagine you shouldn't have trouble tracking down some shock lands like Steam Vents , Watery Grave , etc. as well as maybe some fetch lands like Flooded Strand . Evolving Wilds and Terramorphic Expanse are also common in a lot of multi-colored commander decks as well. Exotic Orchard is another good one since chances are you won't be up against only mono-green decks. Since you have access to white, you can also consider the enchantment Smothering Tithe , which is fantastic for ramp and can also play into the artifact theme. Dockside Extortionist is also extremely great for treasures as well.
Also, I know it doesn't give colored mana, but I noticed you don't have Sol Ring included. While it's arguable that not every deck needs it, in a deck where artifacts are a big deal I can't imagine not including such a useful card. A one-drop artifact that gives you two mana and isn't restricted by any colors is so good! I'd definitely consider slotting one in if you can. Some other things you might like are Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain for the card advantage and Hellkite Tyrant to steal your opponents' artifacts as well as give you a nifty alternate wincon!
Anyway, I hope I'm not sounding overly critical. Breya is a cool commander, and I think the deck can have a lot of potential. I'm hoping my suggestions will help you get more out of the deck and help it to be a force to be reckoned with! Best of luck!

Since $500 isn't reasonable for everyone, I thought it may be good to include some substitutions to allow a lower budget. See below for a few changes to consider that will decrease the cost while maintaining the basic strategy the deck. Please note that prices are current and will likely change.
Remove: (~$38.25) Bitterblossom
These changes will reduce the cost by $200... for deeper cuts, things to look at would be:
Cost with all changes: $230

Newest update. I feel like I still need more ramp, so have an Hour of Promise on the way in the mail. As for lands, I need to get the last 5 shocks for this ( Watery Grave , Temple Garden , Godless Shrine , Breeding Pool , and Overgrown Tomb ) which I keep neglecting to do. I definitely plan to take out the temples, dragonskull summit, and skarrg for those when they arrive. I probably need more draw and ramp besides. Definitely thinking of picking up another Windfall for sure, thought I don't know what to cut for it.
