I found this deck online and I really like the playstyle:

what do you think? If I buy these cards is there a possibility to upgrade it in the future? Thanks

I think you definitely want some Selfless Spirit's at least in the sideboard, you also want to move the wraths to the side (only 4 maximum) and move Cast Out to the main, Stasis Snare is another card to consider there. I also think you want Renegade Rallier mainboard.
G/W is a pretty narrow sideboard in standard at the moment but I would say you really want Manglehorn, Solemnity, Fragmentize, Dusk / Dawn, Fumigate, and Authority of the Consuls. You can even consider siding in something like Regal Caracal.

Panharmonicon would double the servo's created from either of those spells and also double the damage triggers from the Fireweaver as well. If you put that on top of Pia's Revolution, it would be pretty crazy.
You could also consider using no cost artifacts, like Ornithopter or Bone Saw or Cathar's Shield, that way you can keep slamming them on the board, dealing damage with the Fireweaver until your opponent has enough and chooses to pay the 3 life to send it to the graveyard.
Ohhh and Ravenous Intruder could even set that up for an infinite loop. Well, like I said, infinite until they pay the 3 life to kill it.
Cool stuff though, hope my suggestions help!

DinoTsar415: the true purpose of Cathar's Shield, Bone Saw & Spidersilk Net are to be transmuted for lands that I need/want. They also have obvious back-up utility that I'm hoping will be useful. Same with the True-Faith Censer, but I also figure it may be useful as a surprise/emergency aggro move with my commander (in conjunction with Whispersilk Cloak, and whatnot). That's the plan, anyway. We'll see. I hope to playtest tonight.
And thanks for reminding me of the guard and muddle.
Thanks for the comments! =)

You could try using the improvise mechanic from Aether Revolt. Cards like Metallic Rebuke, Whir of Invention, and Reverse Engineer are great if you play a lot of low cost artifacts. I see you are already playing a set of Ornithopter, but you also could use Bone Saw and Cathar's Shield. That way you can dump artifacts out of your hand turn one without paying for them, and you can counter your opponent's spells with Metallic Rebuke before they even have the mana to pay the tax. Then I would definitely max out on a set of Tezzeret's Touch, because you can turn the 0 drop bad equipments into 5/5's.

tumorman73: "in the magic world 0 is less than 0"
No, it isn't. Zero is equal to zero, not lesser. You can't return a 0-drop to your hand via Scrap Trawler's ability by pitching another 0-drop to Atog, because it says "target artifact card with lesser converted mana cost", not "lesser or equal". If you sac an Ornithopter or Bone Saw with Trawler in play, the ability will trigger, but you won't be able to choose any artifact in your graveyard, because none of them is a legal target.
Are you sure it was an actual MtG judge who told you 0 counts as "less than 0"? Because if he did, he should lose his job.

I'm really interested in this deck after reading about the Ravenous Intruder + Fling combo in this fantastic article: http://www.gatheringmagic.com/jonathanmedina-04262017-the-degenerates-combo-guide-to-amonkhet/. I checked, and found that no one is attempting this in standard tournaments. I think your deck is really good for not employing fling, and in order for the combo to work one would need to stock a few more 0 drop artifacts, such as these: http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Search/Default.aspx?action=advanced&format=+[%22Standard%22]&type=+[%22Artifact%22]&cmc=+%3C . Bone Saw works, Harvest Hand Flip counts for 2, (and has nice synergy with the humans in your deck), Thraben Gargoyle Flip is good. I see that your deck is super budget, which I love, and luckily all these experimental cards I've dug up are pretty cheap as well! Sorry for the terrible URLs, couldn't get any of the link tricks to work...
