I would cut 5 islands and 5 mountains. Then add Dack Fayden, the ultimate isn't super usefull for you but the other two abilities help you mess with your opponents. For lands why not run the artifact lands like Seat of the Synod and the new tutor Inventors' Fair or Fabricate. I think Muzzio, Visionary Architect would be amazing in this deck as well as Vedalken Archmage for card draw.

turn basic basic lands Seat of the Synod and Vault of Whispers so you can have more synergy with Gearseeker Serpent

I've been considering Golem Foundry tricks for some time now. I've been thinking things like using Ornithopter, Bone Saw, Lotus Petal, etc. as free artifact casts. You could also replace some basics with Seat of the Synod & Tree of Tales to Affinity-cast Frogmites and Myr Enforcers, upping your artifact-casting-triggers.

I personally am going to try something with Golem Foundry and Glint Hawk Idol, Tooth of Chiss-Goria & Scale of Chiss-Goria.

Maybe some of that gives you ideas. =)

Hey, I know something that could help you a lot: Artifact Lands. There's 6 of them (one for each color and one for colorless), and they're all Pauper-legal. The ones you'd want for this deck are Ancient Den, Great Furnace, Seat of the Synod, and Darksteel Citadel. They'll serve you better than those basic lands you've got, because they contribute to the damage dealt by Reckless Fireweaver and Welding Sparks, and the reduced casting cost of Gearseeker Serpent. You can only use 4 of each, but with a 3-color deck, if you include Darksteel Citadel you've got 16 artifact lands total. Helps a lot for cards with Metalcraft or Affinity for Artifacts (a keyword version of Gearseeker Serpent's casting cost ability).

I don't know what you're trying to do with Fiery Temper there. It's good in a deck with cards with abilities based on discarding from your hand so that you can use its Madness cost, but you don't have any such cards, so you're essentially looking at a downgraded Lightning Bolt. But with an artifact deck, there's a card you can use that beats both of 'em, for only 50 cents more each than Fiery Temper: Galvanic Blast. For the same mana cost you can outpace a burn deck's damage. It's a great card.

This looks amazing.

My only suggestions are the artifact lands.

Vault of Whispers, Ancient Den, Seat of the Synod and Great Furnace.

Why Seat of the Synod and Tree of Tales? There is a lot of artifact removal in pauper so I don't think I would play for no reason. If you really like them I would suggest playing Mirran Mettle, although I don't know if you have enough artifacts to makes Mirran Mettle good.

Looks good, just a few quick suggestions.

While cards like trash for treasure and goblin welder can get some of the other big blightsteel never actually goes to the graveyard so he ccan't be brought back. If you were willing to be blue/red, you get access to cards like Tinker, Arcum Dagsson, and Master Transmuter.

If you want to have extra artifacts to sacrifice, i might look into artifact lands like Great Furnace, Darksteel Citadel and Seat of the Synod. If you can have your mana mase pull double duty by both producing mana and being an artifact to sacrifice, it would allow you to replace some of the zero drops like darksteel relic with more ways to cheat big creatures into play.
