Treasure Keeper is also good choice

You'll want Vessel of Nascency as it fills your graveyard, essentially letting you draw 4. Also, Tezzeret's Touch is ridiculous in this deck as you constantly can cast the artifact and the enchantment each turn, giving you recursion effects for Metalspinner's Puzzleknot or even Implement of Malice

Smalls2004 Thanks for the comment! That's not terrible at all, and the life is negligible. I really dig Costly Plunder and Arguel's Blood Fast Flip. I like to use a Costly Plunder to answer removal spells from opponent (Oh you think you're going to kill it huh?! Hahaha) or burying an Embalmer before opponent turn ends. Arguel's is more for attrition stages because the lifegain in this deck is so large that you can pretty much draw for as much mana as you wanna spend. This deck plays patiently and has no problem doing so, and this setup seems to do okay with draw in it's current form. Stoked as all heck for Dominaria though, going to add in some yummy knight action going like Danitha Capashen, Paragon.
That being said I might throw one of the Metalspinner's Puzzleknot in my U/G artifact deck. I use Costly Plunder in that too.

"Help me Argy-won, you're my only hope"
I have looked at decks like this before.
As you have identified, they don't fare well against Aggro, as they take too long to get up and running in comparison - the game is over before their pieces come together, or Control, as there aren't enough Opponent Creatures for them to grab.
We played around with Kitesail Freebooter in Ahoy, Me Hearties! and ended up replacing it with Duress. It is too easy to just kill it, and get back the card it stole. With Duress the card is gone forever.
The way forward here, I believe, is more Creatures to give you time to play your snatching cards, and to let more things die to buff Yahenni, Undying Partisan, which I believe you should have a full playset of. At least three copies.
Early stuff like Earthshaker Khenra would be the way to go. Things you are willing to trade for Opponent Creatures.
Here are some cards you could think about including:
- The aforementioned Earthshaker Khenra
- Dreamstealer - trades then returns, Menace is annoying, discard is annoying
- Fanatical Firebrand - early damage, then kill a small annoying Creature like Glint-Sleeve Siphoner
- Heart-Piercer Manticore - trades then returns, sac Opponent Creature you have stolen
- Walking Ballista - grow, and/or deal damage to Creature or Player
Most people have one Arch of Orazca in their deck, these days.
I know that is a LOT to think about. Tag me in these Comments if you want to discuss things a bit more.

I run the Metalspinner's Puzzleknot in my lifegain deck for additional card draw. Easy to get out, and can get one card now and one later. Also doesn't cost a creature or artifact, and the life is negligible in this type of deck.

This looks scary to play against. Good job!
I think the deck needs a tiny bit more artifacts for Tezzeret to be good. Torrential Gearhulk seems like it could be pretty sweet. Grabbing a Spell Swindle seems like so much value that it would be hard to lose. In addition its an artifact so it makes Tezzeret better. Id consider dropping Tezzeret to a one of and adding 2 torrential gearhulk. Maybe drop Dusk Legion Zealot for 1 Hornswoggle, 2 copies of Metalspinner's Puzzleknot and 1 copy of Bontu's Last Reckoning?

I can see a lot of issues with this deck.
I'm not surprised that you are being overrun by Aggro decks. You don't have much of an early game. Just lots of early Creatures that aren't particularly effective, and hardly any removal.
Fatal Push should be four copies.
You are in some of the best colours here, and your spells should reflect that.
If you only have one God-Pharaoh's Gift then all your Opponent has to do is put it in your Graveyard, then Exile your Graveyard, and you can kiss that sucker goodbye.
With so many copies of Abrade, and so much Graveyard hate running around, that isn't hard to do.
Some copies of Refurbish would also help.
You need more Non-Creature spells to let you make it to the late game.
