I'd recommend trying to take a few things out for some solid late game beaters like Gearseeker Serpent or Myr Enforcer

Also, you're running blue with artifacts. Seems like you're doing yourself a bit of a disservice not running things like Metallic Rebuke and some lockdown.

I think this is a really close one and might come down to your meta.
@Podkomorka I like your choice of ETB creatures and share your evaluation of token producers. Your deck seems to be better at grinding your opponents out since you run more Man-o'-War style creatures and card draw. Your deck seems to offer more different angles of attack with the inclusion of heavy beaters, the Peregrine Drake combo, a way to go wide and the possibility to go Voltron (although rumpy excels you in the latter two categories). Despite what I've written so far I think I would cut Gearseeker Serpent and Amass the Components for more interaction cheap interaction.
@rumpy I think you can make a strong case for your deck being more optimized due to a way lower avarage CMC (2.80 compared to 3.39). Species Gorger seems to be a mana intensive general which makes me think one of the goals in building this deck should be to have a pretty low curve (although I might be wrong since I neither piloted it nor played against it). It also seems to be a good general to go Voltron but I think you should focus some more on protecting it if you want to go that route with cards like Elgaud Shieldmate or Shielding Plax or give it trample Pathbreaker Wurm. I think I would also up the amount of card draw by a little. I also prefer your choice of including at least some fight spells in order to kill creatures but I disagree on your assessment of Leonin Bola. I'd rather run Lignify against Voltron decks even though it can't be tutored via Trinket Mage.
After looking at both lists I think I prefer Podkomorka's list by a smidge but this is rather a choice of preferred play style than power level.

Some of the spots you bring up are somewhat debatable (Leonin Bola due to the voltron heaviness of the format, Seal of Primordium as there's only so many creature based ones and I felt I needed more), but on the whole agree to disagree. I run a lot of the Rampant Growth ETBs, but I take some my ramp in a more efficient direction with Dawn's Reflection et al, which is more explosive in a two-colour deck while retaining flexibility. Put 'em on a forest, get Arbor Elf value. I'll take my Gatecreeper Vine over your Gearseeker Serpent any day, as early game utility, Gorger bounce'ability in a pinch and just plain making land drops is better than a nondescript shielded vanilla beefslab (and that's even though the Vine and the Ranger are indeed some of the weaker spots on the whole). Multani's Acolyte is also actually good, not quite Elvish Visionary tier but gets work done with Gorger out. I also find it amusing how I run everything apart from Peregrine Drake from your attempt to list your deck's strengths, including a higher density of ways to make Gorger larger and connectable, including a Trinket Mage toolbox and a wizardcycling toolbox. Feel free to silently pillage some more stuff and keep your list as the "optimised" one.

First off, I love the deck overall. Especially Gearseeker Serpent and Somber Hoverguard. And Glaze Fiend has me wanting to try a glass cannon approach with it! I could say so much more about your card selection but I'll leave it at that. One of my best spent +1's.

The main strategy I'd go with is generating large amounts of artifact tokens/creatures to win with either riches or crazy recursion loops with giant beaters, sacking a few myr or thopters with something like Champion of Stray Souls to bring back all your giant beasties. This is just a bunch of possible options that would help with that strategy.

I know it's not very good but Gearseeker Serpent does (basically) have affinity.
