Have only done some prelim testing vs mid-range decks. Not too bad so far, I think it has potential. How can I make this deck better?

add black for removal/disruption. don't have to worry about your opponent targeting your fatties if you rip their hand of it first.

I think Turn Aside will not protect your illusions.
If a phantasmal creature becomes the target of a spell or ability, the sac. ability triggers and goes on the stack on top of that spell or ability. It ability will resolve (causing it to be sacrificed) first. Unless the spell or ability has another target, it will then be countered when it tries to resolve for having no legal targets.
So no counterspell can help that. Obviously it can protect you Sphyinx, Automaton and Lord, but does it worth 4 places in side?

Using the lord that can tap blue creatures for artifact mana, treasure mages and a few 6+ cmc artifact bombs seems like a good plan. Also running phyrexian metamorph is good.

when the phantasmal creatures become the target of a spell or ability you have to sacrifice them, when you choose to equip something to a creature, it is being the target of an ability
