You Should Add Mechanized Production (you would be targeting a thopter if you want to win or another good artifacts just for the copys). You could also look into adding Padeem, Consul of Innovation to protect your thopters and other artifacts. Also, with things like Pentavus and Spine of Ish Sah being in your deck you could get some nice card draw off Padeem, Consul of Innovation.

I don't think you need Pentavus, and although Kiora, Master of the Depths is good, she doesn't really fit the theme of your deck.

Airdraken - I have thought of Pentavus. Didn't make the list the first time around, but could be something to test if I feel like something isn't as strong as I want it to be. Crop Rotation is just a card I forgot about, probably will find its way in here. Haven't had enough time to test Animation Module yet, so stay tuned. As for Ulvenwald Mysteries and any other card with the text "nontoken creature", I feel like I don't get enough value off of it. I feel like I sacrifice tokens too often to get enough value off of those cards to run them in the list. Mindless Automaton isn't bad per se, but I feel like this list has enough effects to keep the hand full or generate pseudo-card advantage. Crystalline Crawler could be a solid include to some lists, but I haven't really felt the need for further fixing. Eldrazi Monument is definitely a solid card, so maybe it's worth a slot. I'll have to see if I can fit it. Ordeal of Nylea feels too weak for me. I think there are other cards that are more significant that I would like to run before that. Attrition is a solid removal option, but I think I may try Retribution of the Ancients before Attrition. Swarmyard is a good add-in for later, but at the time I felt like the ~$10 could be better spent on other cards.

Awesome list. I'm currently trying to make my own. and forgot to look at others lists on here before buying! Oops!

Have you thought about Pentavus ? Also i'm thinking of trying Tetravus. too doing a similar thing but only at end of turn.

Crop Rotation to find any specific land and sacs.

Animation Module How has the testing for that been going?

Have you given consideration to Ulvenwald Mysteries ? So for every non token creature that dies you'll get a clue. so you get a (2) sac clue draw a card. When you sacrifice the clue you get a 1/1. I haven't had a chance to play but

Also Mindless Automaton Could be more card draw dependent on how many counters you're getting with Mazirek. Crystalline Crawler is of the similar route but for mana.

Eldrazi Monument ?

Ordeal of Nylea i think is also super interesting. providing +1/+1 counters, a sacrifice and ramp. Attrition Golgari Germination

Thopter Assembly and Pentavus might need to be cut

A little heavy on the vehicles (though I realize they are the namesake of the deck), but I'm digging this clean-burning aether engine. Pentavus seems good for this deck. I might also suggest Hardened Scales if you wish to further push +1/+1 counters, along with Durable Handicraft - also from Kaldesh!

I love Breya!!! A fun interaction/infinite combo is Pentavus, Ashnod's Altar, and Blade of the Bloodchief. The pieces are pretty reasonably priced and with the amount of tutors in W/B/U/R it's super easy to get all the pieces you need.

Good luck!
