Hey, some interesting card choices for upgrades to the precon. I can tell your deck is based on the precon because I see Darksteel Juggernaut.
A kink here to work on is the avg. CMC. The mana curve is very high at 4.3 not including Organic Extinction and Mycosynth Golem. The precon mana curve is already high at 3.5 not including Thought Monitor. A higher mana curve would be fine if supported with lots more low mana cost ramp, but you cut most of the low mana cost ramp (Signets, Liquimetal, Vessel) from the precon. There's only 6 ramp sources here 3 CMC or less which is low.
You could have a difficult time casting Urza using artifact creature affinity with only 7 artifact creatures 3 CMC or less. You really can't count on Urza's artifact affinity to first cast him and having not many ramp sources, ramp can't be counted on either. Master Transmuter is a great upgrade, she helps a lot when playing a lower amount of ramp. To improve the mana curve which will help gameplay consider choosing a few of the better high mana cost cards and cutting the others? Most 4 drops here are much better than the 5-7+ drops and that's good for the mana curve.
Research Thief, The Mightstone and Weakstone Meld, Blightsteel Colossus, Mycosynth Golem, Thopter Assembly, Tezzeret, Master of the Bridge, Organic Extinction, Darksteel Forge, Mycosynth Lattice, Kuldotha Forgemaster, Cyberdrive Awakener these are the better 5-7 CMC cards here. The others could be cut to lower the mana curve because they're simply not as good as these.
- Thief, it's repeatable draw effect is good when you want to be attacking with Constructs.
- Weakstone because you have Urza, Lord Protector Meld.
- Blightsteel, best secondary attacker and because you have Master Transmuter.
- Golem because Urza is a consistent way to create artifacts.
- Assembly because you have Time Sieve.
- Tezzeret because of Constructs.
- Extinction because of Constructs.
- Forge, best protection for all artifacts and because you have Lattice, Transmuter and Padeem.
- Awakener flying for Constructs.
Some upgrades at your price point to consider:
- Esper Sentinel, Mystic Remora
- Diabolic Intent, Fabricate
- Skullclamp (in the precon), Baleful Strix (in the precon)
- Ornithopter of Paradise, Signets and Liquimetal (in the precon)
- The Reality Chip + Sensei's Divining Top combo
- Spellskite, Skrelv, Defector Mite, Ethersworn Canonist
- Skrelv's Hive
- Counterspell, Swords to Plowshares (in the precon)
Good luck with your deck.

This is a pretty good reference (I was surprised that among good reprintable cards, Capture of Jingzhou was the most expensive.)
Some neat cards that have seen little to no reprints for a long while:
- Teferi's Veil is good anti-wrath protection for combat decks
- Cover of Darkness is outdated, but gives cheap tribal evasion
- Mycosynth Golem, Training Grounds
I expect the various Sliver legends to make a reaprearance. Also, Mana Crypt could stand to be a less of a luxury.
phillipswhwew on stonecoil serpent and affinity

Say I have Mycosynth Golem on the battle field with 6 other artifacts and 3 land. Can I cast Stonecoil Serpent with X being 10 d/t golem giving it affinity for artifacts ??

Hi! I made a similar deck, based on the Arcbound creatures. I added a couple Mycosynth Golem to it. You easily get enough mana + artifact affinity to cast it fairly quickly (especially as your lands are also artifacts) and then you can just play anything anytime not caring for mana. Love when it drops, I just drop my entire hand on the table :)

Thanks for your answer !
I'm not sure why you're saying that making Urza an artifact would make it a good source of commander damage, but yes the gameplan is mostly straightforward beatdown with the construct token, in a very casual fashion.
I know Urza, Lord High Artificer is a very good combo piece, but I rather intend to use it as an extra source of mana and value engine, in a very vanilla way. I know to some it might be sacrilegious, but I'm keeping it casual and I just like the construct theme. I'm not too fond of having boring infinite combos and extra turns in a fun format, at least on the kitchen table with friends. But also I don't really want to go for full aggro with only cheap creatures to get Urza out early and counterspells to keep it, even though that would probably be better.
Now the thing with Tezzeret, Master of the Bridge is that I can't tutor it and it's relatively fragile as a planeswalker, so Mycosynth Golem still isn't a bad addition, in my opinion, especially with Fabricate and Sphinx Summoner.
Then, 35 lands is not nearly enough if I want to consistently have 3-4 lands on turn 3-4, I know commander player are the constant desire to remove lands but 35% chances of lands isn't enough, especially with lots of 3+ drops. Regarding what lands, I am not new to the game and I know that taplands sure aren't as good as ravlands, checklands and others, but they are also much cheaper. I have some left from past competitive decks, but I don't really wanna buy more right now, maybe later.

Hey, good upgrades to the precon, what you've done so far.
How do you want to win? Determining the main strategy you want to play can help to keep good cards for that strategy and cut unnecessary cards. If you're wanting to keep precon level budget then doing combat damage with Constructs and Commander damage with Urza are directions to consider. Research Thief and Bident of Thassa are excellent budget cards if you want to be attacking with Constructs. Making Urza an artifact makes him a reliable source of Commander damage, but this means including effects to make Urza an artifact.
You have Urza, Lord High Artificer, he's a combo wincon, but to use him as a wincon you'll want to add other cards and more ways to assemble the combo. Drawing cards from Constructs doing combat damage to opponents is a good alternative to playing expensive price tutors to get combo pieces in your hand.
You have Tezzeret, Master of the Bridge, you don't really need Mycosynth Golem especially not for it's price tag. You don't need this Tezzeret either, but if you have it might as well play it. The first cuts to consider are lands since 41 lands is a lot when the strategy here are artifacts. Consider cutting 6 lands? Lands that always ETB tapped and are worse then others that also do this. If you feel you need more mana then add mana sources (rocks, dorks) not lands.
- Orzhov Basilica, Azorius Chancery, Dimir Aqueduct
- Temple of Silence, Temple of Deceit, Temple of Enlightenment
The Bounce lands and Scry lands are worse always ETB tapped lands then Tri lands, Bridges, etc.
Some advice for more cuts is choose the top 20 creatures here, top 10 artifacts and top 10 other nonland cards. By choosing the best cards then you can cut a huge chunk away of lesser cards.
- Urza, Lord High Artificer
- Research Thief
- Losheel, Clockwork Scholar
- Thought Monitor, Ethersworn Sphinx
- Ornithopter of Paradise, Etherium Sculptor
- Phyrexian Metamorph
- Spellskite, Padeem, Consul of Innovation
- Ethersworn Canonist
- Baleful Strix
- Hangarback Walker, Sai, Master Thopterist
- Steel Overseer
- Armix, Filigree Thrasher
- Emry, Lurker of the Loch, Sharuum the Hegemon
- The Reality Chip, Lion Sash
- Sol Ring
- Arcane Signet, Chromatic Lantern
- Liquimetal Torque
- Talisman of Dominance, Talisman of Hierarchy
- Swiftfoot Boots
- Cranial Plating, Shadowspear
- Strionic Resonator
- Their Name is Death, Phyrexian Scriptures
- The Flesh is Weak
- Tezzeret, Master of the Bridge
- Artificer Class
- Austere Command
- Void Rend
- Swords to Plowshares
- Dovin's Veto
For upgrading it's easier to get an established list that's not 99 cards then have a list that's way over 99 cards. Really any 0-3 drop artifact creature who can make some value to take advantage of Urza artifact creature affinity or any 0-2 drop mana rock for more ramp can fill unfilled deck spots.
Good luck with your deck.

Instead of Metalwork Colossus consider slotting in Mycosynth Golem.
Max_Hammer on U Artifact Affinity

This is indeed a very funny affinity deck. I can help here, friend. (:
Mystic Forge is going to give you pretty much as much freedom with playing stuff as you want. Unless you hit a land, that is. Taking out Gingerbrute and Aether Spellbomb for two of these is probably all you'll need.
Shield Sphere is a blocker for free. I'd replace either Memnite or Ornithopter with four of these.
Power Depot is too good to pass up. Swap out Spire of Industry, Razortide Bridge, and one Mistvault Bridge.
Treasure Vault is very snazzy and should probably replace the rest of the Mistvault Bridges.
Chromescale Drake gets you some extra artifacts. I'd swap him out for Sojourner's Companion.
Tormod's Crypt should replace Nihil Spellbomb, Pithing Needle, and Relic of Progenitus.
Qumulox, Broodstar, Somber Hoverguard, and Myr Enforcer are all just more affinity creatures.
Mycosynth Golem is going to make everything absurdly cheap.
I also think that you should replace Welding Jar, Shadowspear, and Gingerbrute either wil three copies of Welding Jar or three copies of Shadowspear, putting three copies of the other into your sideboard.
