I love affinity. And good luck with it. I was looking at doing a similar thing this is my hanky affinity build.
+1 from me.

If you want to beat Burn, Dragon's Claw is a thing. If your opponents run Vandalblast/Shatterstorm, then the best thing to do is probably to just ignore it and beat them before they land those cards (which, incidentally, are terrible in Burn.) Even if they do somehow resolve a Shatterstorm or Vandalblast, Hangarback tokens+manlands can probably clean up on the next turn. They should be Bolting your Vault Skirges, but if they hit anything else, you're probably fine. Ravager can often eat them for a counter, and they really can't afford to lose that much gas, because you win the topdeck war (Cranial Plating > literally anything they can do.)

Ensoul Artifact is really cool, and I'm running it in my current affinity deck. My meta is mostly other Affinity, Infect, Jund, and the occasional other thing. Ensoul can give you a 5/5 flying lifelink or otherwise swinging on turn 2. The god hand for this version is Darksteel Citadel, Ornithopter, Mox Opal, Vault Skirge, Ensoul Artifact, Springleaf Drum and Arcbound Ravager. You can play Vault Skirge with Ensoul on it turn 1, and on turn 2 you can play Ravager, sac everything to Ravager other than your 5/5 Vault Skirge, swing with a 10/10 Vault Skirge on turn 2. You may be lucky enough to draw a Welding Jar. Will they blow it up before you can do this? Put Ensoul on Darksteel Citadel. Path to Exile? Stick it on your smallest guy. You still have Etched Champions and Steel Overseers for your additional bombs, along with Ravager and Plating. Ensoul Artifact mixes it up a bit for me and I really like how it plays in Affinity.

Ensoul is good and I've played it before. The problem is, in burn heavy metas auras aren't very good since every creature we play dies to their burn and gets easily 2:1ed. (Even Etched Champion, damn Kozilek's Return...)
In those matches we don't really want to be casting Ensoul Artifact and then getting our target Bolted in response. It's pretty feels-bad.
This is why I'm leaning on Master of Etherium a little more.
