I like the idea of the deck! I would say that Inventors' Fair is probably a better card in this deck than Phyrexia's Core because it'll most likely gain you life every turn, and even better, it can fetch an artifact card like Salvage Titan from you deck by sacrificing it. You probably want 4 Executioner's Capsules in the deck and maybe some number of Courier's Capsules, because they fit the artifacts in the graveyard theme, and they help you get ahead on board or with cards in hand! Another couple of cards you might consider that are fairly popular in standard right now are Glint-Nest Crane and Metalwork Colossus. Both of those are cards I could see fitting in here nicely. I get the idea behind the Ironclad Revolutionary, Secret Salvage and Defiant Salvager, but I think they could be easy cards to cut. Most of your artifacts already give you benefits to sacrifice them with their own abilities, so you probably don't need to sacrifice them to other abilities. Secret Salvage is a very high priced cmc and it requires you to have 4 of any card you would want to target with it (or else it isn't even worth it) and it requires one of them to be in the graveyard. Ovalchase Daredevil could be a good recurring creature in a deck like this as well, plus you dont have any cards currently filling the 4 mana cost card slot in your deck. Ultimately it's your deck, and you should put whatever 60 cards you want in there! who cares how good or bad it is if you have fun playing.

Ok, but seriously. The way I am looking at this deck it seems like the goal is to turn each and every threaten effect into a kill spell. To do that you are going to want more reusable sacrifice outlets. I would aim for 12-16 of them. Hazoret's Favor, Defiant Salvager, and Yahenni, Undying Partisan are all sweet. I splashed white in my version for Hidden Stockpile. I love this deck for anything except a match against control.

seems pretty solid on a bit of a budget. if you can, you might want to consider Syndicate Trafficker instead of Defiant Salvager since its cheaper, more aggressive, more flexible in its ability, and only misses a few sac triggers since your servos are artifacts.

Instead of hijack run Kari Zev's Expertise add Invigorated Rampage and run either Yahenni, Undying Partisan Defiant Salvager Voracious Null or even bontu if you want. I tried this exact deck and it lacks consistency. have a look at my improved mono red version, ive won a fnm with it last week, Amonkhet Paradox Smorc. trust me 20x better and still budget.

Updates: I decided to splash black for some more card draw, and to take advantage of Defiant Salvager as another sac source.
