I like it. I think Gifted Aetherborn would fit nicely in here. It's always good to pack more deathtouch!

Fatal Push, not sure if it's too pricey for you but it is definitely worth cheking out. I agreee with Schar17 about the focus. Energy decks can get absolutely nasty, I think that might be your best option. Aerial Responder will be a great friend, as he'll survive the -2/-2 from the Demon, not to mention lifelink. Kambal, Consul of Allocation provides nice drain. Captured by the Consulate prevents a bit of removal. Gifted Aetherborn is a scary blocker and cheap attacker. These are just from the Kaladesh block, you can find some cool stuff in slightly older sets. Welcome back to Magic!

I like the deck, however I think you need to change 2 cards. I'm not sure what you want to hit with Secret Salvage as you generally want to exile a card you will have 3 more in your library to fetch, which limits your options to Fatal Push (good), Ornithopter (bad), Gifted Aetherborn (good), but this card still relies on you playing one of these cards before you can exile it.
I also feel that the Metalspinner's Puzzleknot should be replaced with Succumb to Temptation which costs less, can be played at instant speed and you dont require the artifact type for delirium anyway.
I think you need a few extra lands, 20 is usually only for very aggro decks, I would add 3 more. Also you have the white cards in your sideboard, but no way of creating white mana, you will need some Concealed Courtyard and Shambling Vent to try and get these to work; I see you have 3 aether hubs, but you will definitely need more than that.

I am seeing 2 different decks lumped together.
1) Generate a lot of Servos and sac them to boost Defiant Salvager and Syndicate Trafficker. The strategy can work, but I would look for more free or cheap artifacts to sac and some way to recycle them - Perpetual Timepiece would at least get them back into your library.
2) Creature hating deathtouch deck that can build a token attack. Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet would be central to this deck. Gifted Aetherborn and Yahenni, Undying Partisan give your board presence, etc. I would, however, look to add some more cheap deathtouch creatures for suicide attack/defence and throw in Flaying Tendrils, or a few more Murder. You might consider Herald of Anguish as another finisher.
I tend to agree that Liliana, the Last Hope will be just that (the last hope) and wont see too much play.

I found you!
Try the following:
Drop 2x Islands, a mountain, and a swamp for a total of just 20 land. If you find that you get mana-starved in play-testing, I would also consider 4x Evolving Wilds instead of basic land which would allow you to search and pull for the color of land you need.
Drop either 2x Ornithopter's or the Bone Saw's. Pull the Gifted Aetherborn's since they don't really fit the theme of the deck. I would also consider coming down to only 2x of Tezzeret's Touch. Put the Scrap Trawler's in your sideboard instead of your mainboard. I would either run the full set of Freejam Regent and drop your demon, or go half and half with 2x of him and 2x of the Herald of Anguish. That would bring your card count down to 62, which is a little bit more manageable.
With this setup, I see Reverse Engineer as the only real problem with this deck since it requires 2x blue mana. Freejam and Herald also require 2x of their color, but they're late-game players which you're trying to make sure you get out as closer's for you game. Reverse Engineer is kind of a "back up" card if your hand-size gets low and does better in the sideboard since you can get a feel for your opponents deck and pull it in if they're also playing a longer game. I would put in Metallic Rebuke instead since it's a very fast and sneaky card with it's improvise function and is much better early in the game; you slow your opponent down by countering his spells while you prep for your own bigger creatures.
I would consider adding Pia Nalaar since she also adds a thopter artifact creature and is an Artificer which would give you three creatures to use Inventor's Goggles on. I'm a big fan of Filigree Familiar and if you're thinking of adding it, I would pull the Ornithopter's altogether in favor of that more productive creature.
See my own improvise deck for other ideas Tezzeret likes to touch things. +1 for finally getting on this site and publishing your first deck :)

Gifted Aetherborn is a powerful, cheap creature that gives you some of devotion on top of that. I would recommend at least 2.

I like the deck and want to create something like this eventually however I feel there are a few changes that could make this deck better.
First, Bloodghast looks like hes in the deck solely for the extra devotion and doesnt have any other synchronicity (except +1 on Lili to discard it), and I think there would be a better creature for this slot. - Gifted Aetherborn maybe.
Second, I would put in 4 Demigod of Revenge so that you have more chance to utilise his ability which really makes him a threat in the games.
Third, I am not sure about x3 Relentless Dead's and I would drop him down to 1 or 2, and use him as a way to recur a creature you like from your graveyard, although you currently only have 2 other zombies to hit. x3 may mean you see him more than you want and without targets in the graveyard, he becomes a bit worse. Either that or add another utility zombie creature into the deck.
Finally you may want to add a single Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx as if your opponent can remove your blood moons then you will get a lot of mana, and if not its a red source anyway. However you may need to test this out, as you will be looking for black mana on the first 3 turns and a colourless mana may hold you back a turn.
Although a lot of comments above, I like the deck already and think its pretty solid +1
