This is my Tezzeret deck that was made on a budget:Creature spells (13):
4 x Dhund Operative
2 x Bastion Inventor
3 x Wind-Kin Raiders
2 x Sky Skiff
3 x Prophetic Prism
4 x Servo Schematic
2 x Treasure Keeper
Enchantment Auras (3):
3 x Tezzeret's Touch
2 x Reverse Engineer
8 x Swamp
12 x Island
It's pretty lack luster and could do with some more powerful monsters but it seems okay for a budget deck

If you like the card, i'm not going to be the one to tell you not to use it. it just means that you need to find cards that you will be ok with sacrificing to it that also help out with the rest of the deck. With that said:
Servo Schematic is a great card to sac. it's also a good target for Tezzeret's Touch, because if destroyed, it will die, go to graveyard, produce a token, then get returned to your hand to be played again for another token. then if you sac it, you get the benefit from Ironclad Revolutionary and ANOTHER servo token when it goes into the grave a second time.
Implement of Examination is another card that wouldn't be too bad to sacrifice. while not being as good as the schematic, an extra card for your troubles is better than nothing.
Treasure Keeper wouldn't be the first card i would choose to sac because of it already being a 3/3 body, however it is also a viable target, and if you can get out a Scrap Trawler before you do so, then it makes the pain lessen as you can return an artifact with cmc 3 or less from the grave to your hand.
speaking of which, Scrap Trawler is fantastic with cards that require sacing artifacts to work. especially when you have a wide range of cmc costs. for instance, its possible to go from a Treasure Keeper to an Implement of Examination sacing it to draw 2 cards, grab a Servo Schematic, then when that dies, you can grab a 1 mana artifact. (im currently running Hope of Ghirapur, and when that dies go get an Ornithopter back. its a little broken, though it might take a turn or two to go through the cycle.
Dukhara Peafowl is exactly as bad as you think it is btw haha. it might have its moment once in a while, but its nothing fancy.
Dhund Operative on the other hand is actually not a bad card. a reliable 3/2 deathtouch for 2 mana is nothing to sneeze at. if you can make it work with him, then i say go for it. he makes your opponent have to think twice about turning is bigger creatures sideways as the deathtouch will obviously just gobble them up.
i've also found that Bastion Inventor just doesn't do enough to be worth it, and was one of the first cards i cut when i changed up the deck. Do you agree or did i just miss something in him? i mean i cut him so early i never really got the chance to use him, so i could have been mistaken.

LithiumHD. so basically all I do with my improvise deck is to see whether or not a creature has improvise or not, if it doesn't then add an artifact instead? But, also taking in consideration the creatures that take advantage of having artifacts? For an example, Dhund Operative gets +1/0 and deathtouch if I have an artifact in play.
I do not have a good feeling about Dukhara Peafowl, it does get flying which could be useful, but I think there could be a much better card in its place.
With Ironclad Revolutionary, I like what it does, but I do not like the idea of having to sacrifice an artifact to do it.

I feel Dhund Operative over performed in my pre-release deck. Check mine out if you want to.

Wow, playtested this and it seems to work better than I anticipated. Dhund Operative, Shamble Back, Smuggler's Copter, and Night Market Lookout were pretty amazing. Scrapheap Scrounger did its job well, and siding in Unnatural Endurance caught my opponent completely off guard! A speed deck with deathtouch is just amazing. This even consistently beat my mono-red weenie speed deck...
