Im gonna suggest a couple small edits.
First I would make room for Metallic Rebuke. This is the best hard counter spell for your deck. You can easily tap down an artifact that you aren't using to help with the mana cost, servo schematic is the option I'm thinking of.
Second, you should increase your planeswalker count. Tezzeret the Schemer is great in this deck because he gives you artifacts and works wonderfully with most of the deck.
The implement would be great late game but think of what you could do with 3 mana. You can play an artifact that doesn't progress your board or you can play tezzeret's touch, scrap trawler, Tezzeret's Simulacrum, Metallic Rebuke, Battle at the Bridge.... You get it. I know that the extra draw is great, especially if you use the sacrifice ability on your opponents turn, but for 4 mana you could also play Glimmer of Genius which plays much much better. Or even Anticipate which is almost as good.

Thank you so much for the advice! This is great information to help me polish the deck. I am going to play around with the cards you listed today and see what I can make happen!

No problem. Good luck! If you want to see a more control based version of the deck you can check out mine. It does well against everything if you have good timing.

Cathar's Shield could replace orinthopter. Have you considered Bastion Inventor or Key to the City? A 4/4 hexproof is really good in this deck when you consider it could hit the board turn 3 or sooner. Key to the City would make a creature unblockable and help with draw when used for improvise or Merchant's Dockhand.

Definitely don't drop ornithopter for Cathar's shield. Having a flying walls for 0 mana will always beat a blank artifact. It's not a bad idea to try but I tried it and ornithopter plays SO much better every time.

I did some play testing with this list and having a 5/5 flyer on turn 3 with Ornithopter and Tezzeret's Touch is just to good to pass up! I Feel like it still needs more cycle. I played about 4 matches and never drew Herald of Anguish. Maybe my luck is just bad. Running Fortuitous Find would make me feel more comfortable running Treasure Keeper. I always feel like im going to mill a Herald with it lol.
