I like all of these inclusion, i amonkhet a big fan of the direction of black and green cards. I made som additions
Whirler Rogue good in General and a bomb in ub
Merchant's Dockhandthis might be to all in (?)
Thirst for Knowledge really good in ub, 23 card in blue
March of the Machines well.. Maybe?
Faerie Mechanist with a higher density of artifacts this might go in more decks.
Cranial Plating i don't know about this one
Hibernation's End i love this card, so do you!

I have removed Endbringer, Faerie Mechanist, Notion Thief, Reaper of the Wilds, Thought-Knot Seer, Claws of Gix, Crawlspace, and Smoke in favor of Merchant's Dockhand, Quicksmith Rebel, Morbid Curiosity, Treasure Keeper, Tezzeret the Schemer, Aetherflux Reservoir, Maverick Thopterist, Cathartic Reunion, Silent Arbiter, Rishkar's Expertise. No clue if these are good changes, but I just got most of these cards. Input would be greatly appreciated.

drop Apprentice Wizard asap, his double blue mana cost puts a huge strain on mostly colorless mana production. (in tests, even weaponscraft enthusiast was hard to cast)

I really like the idea of playing Salvaging Station if you're planning on keeping Dispeller's/Executioner's Capsule in the deck. There should really be a Goblin Welder in there. Mana base should probably have Ghost Quarter/Wasteland/Strip Mine as answers to lands like Nyxthos and Valakut. Some number of Signets is probably going to help. Faerie Mechanist is some nice card selections, as is the standard suite of blue draw spells like Fact or Fiction or Rhystic Study. I'd switch out the Leonin Elder for Disciple of the Vault. Inventors' Fair is a great land. For more expensive options, Mycosynth Lattice continues to be broken in artifact decks. Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas also continues to be absurd in artifact decks. Rings of Brighthearth is great. The obvious expensive additions to the mana base would be obvious additions. Fetches, duals, shocks, check lands, fast lands, man lands, etc. Any number of tutors would help out.

Does anyone know how to keep track of the revisions on the side?

This deck is very simple to play on the face of it, but is very easy to misplay and find yourself in trouble. Unlike most decks you run no removal, you have no instants or sorceries, you run almost only creature cards, and the 4 cards that aren't creatures simply make your creatures bigger. Other decks that fit this theme are very fast aggro decks, but this deck isn't that fast either, but don't worry too much about that.
You run 8 one drop creatures (Vault Skirge is a one mana creature unless you have nothing else to do with your mana), but you also run 12 lands that come into play tapped. Do not feel you have to play a creature turn one, play the land tapped turn one first, the reason for this is so it doesn't slow you down in the mid game (where your deck shines), and you aren't in a rush to run in either, so don't worry if it feels a little slow of the ground.
Your deck is like cogs in a machine, they all work well together. A 'Lord' is a creature that gives a bonus to a group of creatures, Chief of the Foundry and Grand Architect are both lords, then Tempered Steel is another lord of sorts. These make all of your creatures huge and incredible value for mana, those little one mana guys will pack a huge punch at any stage in the game!
You also have Etherium Sculptor who is another sort of lord, but instead of increasing power, decreases the cost of all artifacts you play by 1 colourless mana. This doesn't work on creatures that have no colourless mana cost, such as Court Homunculus and Esper Stormblade, (or the Grand Architect of course) but does make all your other creatures cheaper, and lets you cast Vault Skirge for 0 mana.
You don't run any instants or sorceries, but you have a couple of creatures with effects that help you out. Faerie Mechanist is a draw spell, but along with drawing you a card it's an artifact, and blue for the architect. The deck also runs 2 Ethersworn Shieldmage, this guy is awesome, but the deck doesn't run on instant speed so it only wants the two. Always remember you have a main phase before and after combat, always play creatures AFTER the combat phase. This way you attack with your creatures, if the opponent blocks to kill your creatures, or plays a combat trick to kill them, or something similar, you can flash in your Ethersworn Shieldmage to save your guys. However, if you don't need to use him then don't, play something else on your second main phase, then keep him for the next turn when you attack.
Finally, you have the Grand Architect. This guy lets you get to huge amounts of mana very quickly, which lets you get Sphinx of the Steel Wind out of the field a little earlier. It's almost always worth tapping your creatures for the mana to get these big guys (or multiple small guys) on the field to apply pressure. But not only does he let you ramp mana, he's a Lord to blue creatures, and lets you turn creatures blue, so he's good at any point in the game.
This deck is great fun to explore and play around with, and to modify with the artifacts of your choice. When you look to build a sideboard, add in cards that the deck doesn't have anything of, such as removal for creatures, artifacts and enchantments, you could run counter spells for when playing against control, and life gain when playing against aggro.
Most of all, enjoy the deck, and play the cards you love, and the more you play, the more you'll win. These guys will help out as much as they can!
