If I may suggest some artifact synergy creatures, perhaps Foundry Inspector, Steel Overseer, Burnished Hart, Jhoira's Familiar, Myr Retriever, Etherium Sculptor, Palladium Myr, Myr Enforcer, Master of Etherium, Frogmite, Chief of the Foundry, Sylvok Replica, Esperzoa, and of course, Sol Ring, despite the fact that it's not a creature.

Thank you for your suggestions!
I was trying to build a sort of midrange deck with a lot of card-draw and the ability to win by equipping Cranial Plating at instant speed or by attacking and pumping with Master of Etherium and a big board of robots.
Given that without Opal it's very difficult to "win quickly" I decided not to include Pests and Skirges.
One of the biggest problems of Affinity is that it runs out of gas very quickly and, trying to go for the long run, the deck really needed a lot of card draw. In order to do so I decided to put Rebuke and Remand to buy some time while digging for useful cards.
I really like the idea to ditch Ensoul Artifact: the enchantment has proven not very useful (if not an outright useless 2 for 1).

Hey, good budget version of Saheeli. Interesting concept using X spells rather than more big colorless creatures.
Since you're trying to win with X cost instant/soceries then consider adding Mystical Tutor as one of the expensive price cards? Could cut Planar Bridge for it? Bridge is fine to cheat onto the battlefield, but still need to activate it's ability which is a lot. Cards that can recur Mystical such as Mystic Sanctuary and Mystic Retrieval could be added use Mystical again.
Consider adding other budget artifacts or cards that have interaction with artifacts? Cards to consider adding:
- Ash Barrens
- Buried Ruin
- Talisman of Creativity
- Everflowing Chalice
- Prismatic Lens
- Skullclamp : Servos are 1/1s.
- Foundry Inspector
- Kuldotha Forgemaster
- Goblin Welder
Talisman, Chalice and Lens are other budget two drop mana artifacts which are helpful to ramp into four drop Saheeli. Forgemaster and Welder are good when you have a repeatable source of 1/1 Servos. Being able to sac a Servo(s) to cheat a better artifact onto the battlefield. Forgemaster for it's comparable price can do a lot more than Master of Etherium . Because Servos are 1/1s then this makes Skullclamp repeatable draw which is good with Crawler. Skullclamp because you're trying to win with Crawler can do more for the comparable price than Mirage Mirror .
Cards to consider cutting:
- Izzet Cluestone
- Izzet Locket
- Prototype Portal
- Planar Bridge
- Mirage Mirror
- Master of Etherium
- Darksteel Juggernaut
- Metalwork Colossus
- Hellkite Igniter
Good luck with your deck.

Sharding Sphinx is excellent, and it's a big artifact. Master of Etherium is also excellent in an artifact deck. I'd encourage you to check out my artifact deck. It's a little out-dated, but it's got some good cheap cards.

If you're looking to boost your combo, Tezzeret the Seeker may be able to assist you in getting the cards you're looking for. If you want to make this a competitive deck mainly featuring thopters, Sai, Master Thopterist , Pia Nalaar and Pia and Kiran Nalaar all give you thopters (and things to do with those thopters). You may also consider Thopter Assembly and Thopter Spy Network . And of course Master of Etherium goes well in any artifact deck, particularly one that gets lots of artifacts out.
For lands, Temple of Epiphany gets you some scrying, which is nice whether you're searching for that combo or not.

Ideally 4x Mox Opal would be played to reduce this problem. From my experience having 4x Springleaf Drum and 3x Spire of Industry I have not come across being unable to cast Master of Etherium . If this is a problem I might consider splashing some Island and removing some Mountain

Consider maybe getting a 4th Spire of Industry ... between that and Springleaf Drum, you’ll have good odds of being able to equip the plating at instant speed to sneak past defences.

Cards I run in affinity that could help you here:
Master of Etherium : would be a 5/5 then get the +whatever/+whatever, plus pump your team
Karn, Scion of Urza : Can either be card draw or create tokens that when enchanted become at least 6/6's
Springleaf Drum : Especially w/ Memnite , can make insane starts by going Ornithopter , Ornithopter , Memnite , land, Springleaf Drum Springleaf Drum , Signal Pest . Just allows for more explosive nut draws.
Memnite : See above.
Cranial Plating : Easy to make your stuff huge quick.
Inventors' Fair : Keep your life high and be able to tutor for specific artifacts
Blinkmoth Nexus : Another artifact land
Cards you should consider cutting:
Tezzeret the Schemer : Inefficient removal, and the ult will never happen.
This is just my 2 cents, I hope you take these into considerati
