Finally got these cards in paper the other day, this deck is pure beast mode.
Actually, I only ordered two of the Herald of Anguish because I have one laying around somewhere but I couldn't find it. I had just taken apart a Grixis Gearhulk deck that lost a lot of cards in rotation and just wasn't worth rebuilding so I was splitting it up into new decks and immediately had homes for all the hulks except for Noxious Gearhulk. I put one in place of the missing Herald and a second one in place of a land because I actually seemed to be too heavy on land despite the high curve because I tend to use artifacts to pay for things a lot more than actual mana. I'm really liking the way that it is playing out in paper. The added Gearhulks provide another kill card and able bodied threat that can also be used to tap for "mana" if absolutely necessary. The bonus life gain is also completely relevant, especially if you are using Arguel's Blood Fast to keep up your hand.
Battle at the Bridge is also nuts. As a kill card it is quite serviceable. Too bad it isn't instant, but the built in Improvise really does tip it over. What really shines about the card though is that life gain. Sometimes the gain is absolutely massive, and even on turn 3 it can be used to kill a 4 (or more) or less toughness threat and gain back 4 (or more) life which can be a huge swing. Every turn almost grows it's potential exponentially. Very happy with this one.
Throne of the God-Pharaoh is another card that I'm just super happy with. Sometimes the ramp just doesn't get online hard enough, or the draw doesn't line up quite right. The damage from this adds up very quickly, even if all you can pull out are Ornithopters and Weaponcraft Enthusiasts.
The interactions intended during the building process work even better than I could have hoped and I've discovered happy accidents that I didn't even consider. I've been shuffling and playing out hands over and over and over again at my desk while watching Netflix or while working on other things just to get the feel for the consistency and how to play out different starting hands and I must say that I really like how explosive this is and how many different finishers are possible.
Tons of potential with this one, can't wait to bring it to Monday Night Magic and possibly make a return to FNM and raise some eyebrows :)

This is a good start and some good suggestions from Oloro_Magic however currently looking at the deck there are a few things needing to be fixed.
1). Currently you have no 3 drops, so you can never curve out and can be important to keep advantage
I would suggest Never / Return as a good 3 drop removal, Aethersphere Harvester is a good way to make use of all your 1 power creatures, Master Trinketeer can help make tokens and also boost them if you need additional damage and finally Weaponcraft Enthusiast is another good token producer which has an option to become a bigger creature if needed. I would personally choose Master Trinketeer as x4 and Aethersphere Harvester as x2.
2). You can drop some lands, currently you have 26 lands but only have 4 drops at your top end, this is too many and you can easily go down to 23 without being effected by not hitting your lands drops. This will also help you see more creatures or spells in your deck.
3). Personally i would drop the blue in your deck. This will enable you to have more consistent mana base by dropping the blue lands. and swapping Opt for a card like Hidden Stockpile or the 3 drops mentioned above.
Overall the deck is looking good though.

I run a servo deck myself... it's been through a number of iterations, but I'd say that Hidden Stockpile is a must.
Anointed Procession also works rather nicely with servo generation.
Battle at the Bridge is a great spell in artifact based decks, as it can kill indestructible creatures, and has life gain.
As you don't seem to have any Concealed Courtyard, you might want to consider adding Evolving Wilds (triggers Hidden Stockpile) and/or Renegade Map (triggers Hidden Stockpile and Marionette Master, and can be used for improvise) to help with mana-fixing.
Another card you may want to consider is Herald of Anguish... if you can create servos quick enough, you can get him out quite early in the game (turn 4 is my best)... having a strong flyer is handy, and his abilities can really pressure your opponent.

some good cards could be Weaponcraft Enthusiast, Battle at the Bridge and Herald of Anguish. with all the artifacts you could cast a massive battle at the bridge or a turn 4 herald of anguish and weaponcraft enthusiast helps you do both.

i would recommend adding 1 maybe even 2 more Angel of Invention in, that card is great in the deck and your only turn 5 play and if you are running 24 lands you can afford it mana wise. but that is if you want to stay mono white, if you splash black you could add Weaponcraft Enthusiast, Hidden Stockpile and Syndicate Trafficker. if you put in those you could even put in Countless Gears Renegade.

just a suggestion but what you could do is put in Weaponcraft Enthusiast, Servo Exhibition and maybe even Sram's Expertise to create tokens that are also artifacts. this will allow you to use cards like Herald of Anguish in the deck and even use Battle at the Bridge and Syndicate Trafficker more effectively.
