Call to the Kindred seems like an easy two-for-one. and at 4 mana, it's the second most expensive card in the deck. Thoughtcast feels stronger here as you can just get cards in a worst case scenario.

Freeing up a land slot for a one off Academy Ruins might be worthwhile as the deck focuses around Reaper King quite heavily and it lets you recur him from most removal. Especially since your deck will suffer from the same kind of removal that affinity suffers from. Spire of Industry is a good fixing land for your deck as well given you run 16 artifacts.

TheDevicer on Nexus of Fate and the ...

Beacon of Tomorrows debuted in Fifth Dawn all the way back in 2004. Mind you, this was when Disciple of the Vault, Arcbound Ravager, Skullclamp, Thoughtcast, Shrapnel Blast AND artifact lands tore through standard. During that time, you either played artifacts or played something targeting them. After Fifth Dawn, we got the Kamigawa block, notorious for its lack of power and parasitic mechanics. Beacon is an ok card, but it realistically had no hope of seeing play during that Standard Era. Today, it's mostly played in EDH as the Nth extra turn spell and occasionally is used to combo with something like Mystical Tutor and Isochron Scepter.

In comparison, Nexus costs one fewer mana to cast and is an instant. That alone is notable as it's usually pretty darn hard to get that kind of effect. This naturally makes Nexus a card that's highly desirable in EDH.

At the moment, we don't know if Nexus will see Standard constructed play. Still, it's worth noting that a lot of people are eager to try it out. If it ends up seeing notable play, Nexus could become the most expensive card in Standard history.

I'd like to point out that Expropriate was recently printed in a heavily opened set and still commands a high price tag because it offers something a little bit different than most turn spells. EDh demand alone will make this card command a pretty high price. Finally, because the community is aware of these expectations, I'd wager that people will be mostly hanging on to their B-a-B promos, thus creating artificial scarcity for an already rare card.

Aqueous Form, perhaps?

Also 1xHalimar Depths? Clearly, some better lands would be a huge help here, though I'm not your budget wants to shell out for them. I think for the very low AVG CMC here, you could probably be fine with as few as 19 lands - perhaps something like Terramorphic Expanse or Evolving Wilds might be a good idea as well to help thin and stabilize your mana base.

Some additional draw card maybe: Dangerous Wager, Thoughtcast, Tezzeret's Gambit

Other low CMC artifacts: Paradise Mantle, Springleaf Drum, Pithing Needle, Expedition Map, Steel Wall, Myr Servitor, Welding Jar, Elixir of Immortality, Ratchet Bomb

You might also consider Metalcraft spells...

Consider getting a Gilded Lotus. It just got reprinted so, it's $3 or so now, a Thran Dynamo, a Mind Stone, and a Hedron Archive, for rocks. For lands, Isolated Chapel, Dragonskull Summit, and Clifftop Retreat, to finish up your check lands, add some filter lands too(Graven Cairns and the like), for options besides the obvious fetch/shock/ABU duals. Definitely put in the Supreme Verdict. The deck has no boardwipes, in fact, the deck also lacks in good removal too. Anguished Unmaking and Utter End are auto-includes in any deck in Black and White, and so is Merciless Eviction. Other options include Go for the Throat, Cast Down, Settle the Wreckage , Decree of Pain, and Wrath of God/Damnation. As for other includes, the fact that Grand Architect in in the deck means that Pili-Pala should be as well. Darksteel Forge should be included as well as Arcum Dagsson, Thopter Spy Network for free thopters every turn(and free tutors with Arcum), Teshar, Ancestor’s Apostle to open up new combo lines, extra card draw like Thoughtcast, also definitely include Jhoira. That's where I would start with improving the deck. I see the beginnings of a solid deck here though. Good job.

Thoughtcast is good card draw with affinity. I would recommend it if you find you need extra cards in the later game.
