Hey multimedia, I've been brewing up a similar theme. I was amazed at how bonkers the Armorcraft Judge can be, even as early as turn 4 with all the counters between Rishkar, Peema Renegade + Metallic Mimic + Nissa, Voice of Zendikar. I was also contemplating which draw engine to play, Lifecrafter's Bestiary, Soul of the Harvest, or the Judge (I even bought a playset of Soul of the Harvest for <$1). The Judge is even more incredible if you have a Paradox Engine on the field to cast all 10+ cards you just drew using all your little mana dork plants.
I wasn't planning on using Walking Ballista in my build, but I did pull one (and played with) during pre-release and it would make a solid addition both with the +1/+1 theme and as a nice mana-to-damage converter.

Hej there, ive been brewing on the same concept for some time now, and i can tell you the best Creature is definetly Enraged Giant who can beat as early as Turn1!
Another card that many are missing but, felt almost mandatory is Key to the City wich becomes alot better with improvise allowing you to tap it without discarding a card, but it really shines with Bastion Inventor wich becomes a Finisher very few answers in the coming meta.
I'm a bit skeptical about Maverick Thopterist as i don't see him withstanding stuff like Yahenni's Expertise/Kozilek's Return or even Shock but he always leaves his thopters behind when facing spot removal, so i might be wrong.
But i really like the inclusion of Reckless Bushwhacker wich seems to offer good blowout potential in the mid to lategame.
And Finally here is my current list:

F- yeah! THOPTERS!Also Metallic Mimic which you make a thopter and then super buff all the other Thopters.
Oh oh and Hope of Ghirapur in the side board for control match ups and for flavor.

I actually already have a couple of chief of the foundry in the deck. Also, I need to put this in the description because I was in a hurry when I made the deck, but the reason I have Cryptolith Rite in the deck is because of an infinite combo between Cryptolith Rite, Metallic Mimic, and Animation Module. There are two turn orders to get the combo turn 3. Order one is to play Animation Module turn one, then turn two play Cryptolith Rite or Metallic Mimic, then turn three play the one that you didn't play turn one, then tap Metallic Mimic (You act as if artifact creatures don't have summoning sickness in purposes of tap abilities) for some mana, then use that mana and tap your remaining land to play either Cogworker's Puzzleknot or Servo Exhibition. The servo(s) enter with a +1/+1 counter because of Metallic Mimic, which means that Animation Module triggers, allowing me to tap my servo for a mana to activate the ability, getting a servo, triggering the ability, tapping that new servo for mana to activate the ability, and so on. The second turn order is to play Oviya Pashiri, Sage Lifecrafter turn 1, then Cryptolith Rite turn two and tap Oviya Pashiri, Sage Lifecrafter to play Animation Module, then turn three play Metallic Mimic and Cogworker's Puzzleknot or Servo Exhibition by tapping a creature, and do the combo.

From gatherer for Metallic Mimic:
2/9/2017: If a creature entering the battlefield wont have the chosen type until another cards effect gives it that type after it has entered the battlefield, it wont enter with a +1/+1 counter. Creatures that have the chosen type due to their own abilities, such as a second Metallic Mimic with the same creature type chosen, will enter with a +1/+1 counter.
