Finally! Someone else who appreciates the wonder that is Ornithopter! First of all, I really like a lot of this. Ensoul Artifact/Shrapnel Blast is already a tried-and-true deck that we know works and hits for big damage early on. I really like the inclusions of Metallic Mimic and Obelisk of Urd for some solid tribal synergy while also adding a couple extra artifacts.
A few suggestions, though: I don't see a lot of need for Spire of Industry in a 2-color deck, and you'd probably be better off with some Shivan Reefs so you don't have to meet the extra condition, or even just a few Swiftwater Cliffs as a budget option, which is totally viable, if a bit slow, or even a few more basic mountains and islands.
Also, I'm afraid you're going to end up dropping your hand too fast and having to top-deck your way through games, so I recommend Reverse Engineer to keep some gas in your hand with some artifact synergy. A 3 or even 4 cost draw 3 is great value.
I might also replace Clash of Wills with a different counterspell. For example, as long as fetch lands (i.e. Windswept Heath) are in the format, Disallow will be excellent, since they lose their land and life, and don't get the fetch. It also does great things against planeswalkers: They go to ult their Liliana, the Last Hope and kill it, you Disallow, they're down a planeswalker with no zombies to show for it. It's a very cool, very versatile card.
I might also include more than one Thopter Spy Network. It's a very powerful card, and I love its inclusion here. It really puts the pressure on your opponent, and I'd like to see that show up more reliably in this build.
One last suggestion, since it's in the colors, I may throw in Ravenous Intruder. It's effectively a reprint of Atog which is widely played in pauper affinity for good reason: If you produce a lot of thopters, swing in with them and this, your opponent has to block it or you can pump it before damage and completely flatten them.
I love this deck, and I love Ornithopter! Be sure to let me know how this deck plays. Good luck and happy brewing!

Also, Shock can target players for that last 2 damage if necessary.

My first thought is it will just be an exact copy of ornithopter, but since Tezzerets touch doesn't give counters or effects, it changes the power/toughness/type of the card im not 100% on how it would work.

Oh boy do I got some suggestions your going to love. okay bear with me here. Remove 2x Ornithopter it doesnt really do much in the deck anyway, and remove 3x Implement of Combustion and remove 2x Ravenous Intruder to add 2x Defiant Salvager to add 1x Inventor's Apprentice the lifeblood of your early game which is almost always active, and add 4x Servo Schematic which when combo with Ravenous Intruder make him a 5/5 the turn he comes out. Just my thoughts on what I think would help the deck. Also sideboard Fatal Push for sideboard if you can amazing card

Why stop at Herald of Anguish? Drop Chief of the Foundry, put in Inspiring Statuary, and drop Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger in as well, don't have or like Ullamog, Kozilek, the Great Distortion is just as fun, and about 1/3 of the cost...plus he refills your hand when he is cast.
