Here are some suggestions from my experience with getting beat in the face with this style of deck in my play group. Hopefully something here will help:

BlazingAbsol I also have Blinkmoth Nexus as a target for Trash for Treasure and I'm also debating adding a copy or two of Darksteel Citadel as additional targets.

The artifact lands are banned in modern. (Vault of Whispers..etc.) You can play Darksteel Citadel and Blinkmoth Nexus like affinity does, they'll go well with your artifact theme. Tezzeret the Schemer would be good as well. For other lands I'd play a couple Concealed Courtyard, a couple Drowned Catacomb, a couple Glacial Fortress, two or three Ghost Quarter or Field of Ruin, the lands already mentioned and basic lands. Thirst for Knowledge is also recommended.

Indestructible is incredibly powerful, and therein lies its fault. Wizards is well aware of Indestructible's utility and costs appropriately. Colourless spells are hit worst by R&D's costing--they can be slotted into any deck, and thus allow decks to break the colour pie. To adjust, colourless spells tend to be more expensive to cast than their coloured equivalent.

Your indestructible idea requires Tron--but if you're running Tron for 9+ mana, you might as well cast an Eldrazi that wins you the game. Darksteel Citadel and Soul of New Phyrexia might help keep you alive, but they don't win you the game. The top of your curve should be reserved for win-now cards, especially when the top is that high.

So, frankly, you're better off purging the indestructible idea. Or running white, and not artifacts. It's simply not a viable ability in a purely colourless deck.

If you want a blocker who can't take damage: Etched Champion. You'll certainty be able to use its metalcraft ability, and protection is broken powerful. A 2/2 for 3 is might seem mediocre, but it's effectively unblockable, immune from most removal, and cannot be damaged by enemy creatures. It still dies to wraths, but that's a small price for its utility.

Unless your deck capitalizes on lifegain, it's generally not worth it. Tomb of the Spirit Dragon and Radiant Fountain are fine, since they're free and you're going to run lands anyway (though, you'd be better off with Blinkmoth Nexus and Inkmoth Nexus).

Sun Droplet adds nothing to your deck. Most Magic games are nasty, brutish, and short--if you want to be competitive in colourless (where you have no viable counterspells, no viable removal, no viable fogs, etc.), you really only have the option of killing as quickly as possible.

If you want lifegain, Vault Skirge is a strong card--it's a 1/1 with evasion and lifelink for 1 mana.

Signal Pest helps you win by boosting the power of your 0 mana Ornithopters and Memnites.

Great deck idea! Adds an interesting and unexpected mid-game plan for affinity decks that can often times run out of action.

However, what am I not understanding about this mana base? It seems you only have 5 sources of colorless mana in order to cast your Eldrazi. Are Blinkmoth Nexus,Inkmoth Nexus, and Eldrazi Temple able to produce this?

Have you considered Darksteel Citadel?

I suppose you don't always sac the Blinkmoth Nexus to activate Forgemaster, but the upside of Citadel is that it's already an artifact, not being necessary to pay to sac it.

Might want to look into Skullclamp and Cranial Plating as both should be relatively cheap. Other (more expensive) options are Arcbound Ravager and Mox Opal, I'd also definitely find some Blinkmoth Nexus, Inkmoth Nexus and Darksteel Citadel.

Metalwork Colossus is also another cheap finisher for your style of deck but might be hard to turn on without equipment and cycling artifacts like Chromatic Star or Prophetic Prism

Animation Module could be bonkers... along with Panharmonicon
