Updated version of my comment about the possible combos
Also here are the possible combos
3)in case of no Mirran Spy just replace the Nettle Drone /Cathartic Adept / Screeching Sliver with Reckless Fireweaver and start bouncing the artifact as normal for infinite damage. Same can achieved with Grapeshot but after the infinite bouncing of the artifact

After reading your description, I thought I would suggest Monastery Siege. Its "Khans" mode could fit the role you want Compulsion, Zephyr Scribe, and Smuggler's Copter to fill, but for free each turn.

Thanks for the suggestions! I like Welding Jar and Herbal Poultice to protect the combo pieces. A lot of what you're suggesting is a little slow though. Fabricate and Zephyr Scribe are great at finding combo pieces, but then you have to wait a turn in order to actually combo off. That's the whole reason Springleaf Drum is in the deck--it speeds us up.
Adding red is super cool, i need to ry it sometime. My only concern is the manabase for izzet can get costly and this deck was supposed to be budget. Oh well... the life of a magic player is expensive.

I like this combo mainly because of the flexibility in the cards you can combo off with. One 0 mana artifact (Welding Jar probably being the best, Herbal Poultice, or the creatures), one creature that untaps when the artifact ETBs (there are 5 different creatures that do this: Battered Golem, Nettle Drone, Zephyr Scribe if you use a non-creature artifact, Traxos, Scourge of Kroog which is also a wincon on its own, and Mirran Spy), one card that has an ability that triggers whenever a permanent, artifact or creature if you use them enters the battlefield (Molten Nursery, Altar of the Brood, Impact Tremors, or Nettle Drone does it as well), and Retraction Helix or Banishing Knack.
I think that adding red gives you some good options like Nettle Drone and Molten Nursery. I also think that you should run on average 6 of each of the combo pieces. Welding Jar and Herbal Poultice I think are better than Ornithopter and Memnite as they protect the combo. This is probably better than the nut draw of getting the combo out on turn 3.

Hei i've been trying to build arount the combo.How do you feel about Mirran Spy instead of Zephyr Scribe this allows u to play the Spy, use an helix on Reckless Fireweaver and use the trigger from the Spy to untap the weaver allowing to go off one turn earlier?Also as a non-budget upgrad, lotus petal works as a 0 cmc artifact and mana ramp, allowing you to go off on turn 3 with a good hand

Oh, right, that did not occur to me. That's just sick :) I am putting up my version of this deck and I might still run two copies of the Zephyr Scribe in case the combo stalls and you need to draw cards and see what happens.
