Affinity for artifacts (This spell costs less to cast for each artifact you control.)
Draw two cards.
1 week ago
Master of Etherium is a nice good generic Affinity card, as are Thoughtcast and Thought Monitor. Over Buried Ruin you might look at Treasure Vault, it's an artifact land that can make a bunch of artifacts for something like Nettlecyst or Cranial Plating.
I assume the Sol Rings are for THG, because I'm very sure it's banned in Legacy for being completely busted. There really isn't anything else as good you can substitute other than Ancient Tomb, which can kill you, but people definitely run for it's power. There are also Springleaf Drum and Moonsnare Prototype, which can ramp turn 1.
Not sure if it's truly relevant other than as bad 3 mana ramp, but Mirrormade exists. It's harder to cast than Copy Enchantment, but it can copy an Artifact if you want, which is pretty good value sometimes, copying a Land is funny.
In the event of a mirror match, you might like having access to Ravenform to remove opposing bodies that are indestructible or regenerate, it can also hit pesky artifacts, probably worth a look at for a sideboard.
This is going to sound a bit crazy, but you should consider Vault Skirge in here, making a 5/5 flying lifelink is very good vs some decks, and it also plays nice with Cranial Plating. I usually just cast it for the 2 life on turn 1 and try to get a Cranial Plating on it ASAP in my Affinity deck, it has won me plenty of tough games.
I wonder if the Blinkmoth Urns are too slow? I guess THG they make more sense, but if you want to play 1v1 Legacy, you should keep in mind how fast decks tend to be, as this deck packs essentially nothing to spoke an opponent's wheel. I'm not sure you could really fit in counters, but they are great in Legacy if your not going all-in on speed. Of particular interest, cheap/low mana counters can let you protect your indestructible creatures from Exile effects like Swords to Plowshares or edicts like Innocent Blood or Smallpox, these kinds of effects definitely see play in Legacy. I guess in THG you might have a partner packing the protection? I think you either want more creatures or some protection for your bodies. Some counters that are popular include Spell Pierce, Dispel, Swan Song and Flusterstorm, as well as free ones like Force of Will obviously. Good old Counterspell sounds good in theory, but it can be impossible to hold up UU to protect stuff, because getting out a 5/5 is time sensitive, too late and it won't be big enough, too early and the control player can just remove/counter your stuff and win later on.
Cool deck idea!

Phyrexian Walker, Ornithopter, and Memnite are all 0-cost artifact creatures that add to your artifact count and decrease Urza's cost for free. Thoughtcast and Thought Monitor are strong as well, plus Broodstar.

I don't think that is how Arcbound Ravager works, but I think you can get away with 3-4 copies of Urza's Saga, and that could really make your deck cancer. I would add some counterspells with improvise to. Some cards you should look into are Thought Monitor & Thoughtcast(staple Affinity cards) and Springleaf Drum(lots of mana) and Treasure Vault (excess of mana for more artifacts to sack :)) you should also think about running a few more Welding Jars in the mainboard
Here's my deck list for reference: https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/u-artifact-affinity-1/?cb=1667744832

You’re currently running 2x each of Inkwell Leviathan and Sharding Sphinx, but you probably just want 4x of the Leviathan, and ditch the Sphinx entirely. The leviathan is just soo much stronger than the Sphinx in every way that I just don’t see the point in running both.
the plan of using Riddlesmith and Containment Construct feels super awkward to assemble, and really fragile to disruption. I would have thought just using drawspells like Thought Monitor and Thoughtcast to be much more efficient and resilient, even if they individually can’t dig as deep.
something like Scarecrone might be useful for providing additional ways to get your big creatures out.
The idea seems pretty interesting, i’m just worried that the deck currently gets hosed by any kind of board interaction, right up until the point you get your finisher out. I’m not sure if there’s an easy way to solve that problem. Welding Jar should help a ton for at least keeping Master Transmuter alive long enough to do its thing

Personally, i’d ditch all of Remove Soul (too situational), Silent Departure (bad card that gives you card-disadvantage), Anointed Procession (too slow, limited usefulness in this deck), Myr Matrix (far too weak for its mana cost), and Myr Reservoir (not particularly useful).
cards that might be worth considering include Welding Jar (your mana dorks aren’t cheap to cast so you don’t really want them to die), Aether Spellbomb (can act as a cantrip or used to stall), Thoughtcast (card advantage). I’d also suggest running the full playset of Emry, and also raising your land count to around 23 (20 feels waaay too low considering how dependant you’ll be on playing lands for the first 3-4 turns)

-1 Underground Sea is asking for trouble to cast the key black cards. This type of deck can struggle against Wasteland + Null Rod decks, relying on Mox Opal and 1 Underground Sea is not where you want to be.
-Thassa's Oracle does not belong in the deck whatsoever and neither does Noxious Revival. You are already packing Tendrils of Agony and Time Vault which are much more suited to the deck. Noxious Revival is just worse than Snapcaster Mage especially in a deck with Paradoxical Outcome
