Clock of Omens
Tap two untapped artifacts you control: Untap target artifact.
Clock of Omens Discussion

I mean any artifact creature that makes more artifacts for you is a good option.
Myr Battlesphere is effectively just a 3 drop since it make 4 Myr tokens when it comes into play.
Whirler Rogue is another case of this that costs 2 less since it makes Thopters on entry.
Lux Cannon Combos really well with Unwinding clock to help you pop off a permanent every turn.
Zero cost artifact creatures will pretty much serve as a Mox Sapphire for your spells.
Also Clock of Omens serves as an extra Unwinding clock even if it is a little worse.

Oh man, Mirage Mirror . No need to sell me on that card honestly, it's great. The only reason it's not already here is because I've neglected to update this list in a while because I hadn't been able to play much the past couple years. That absolutely needs a spot. I forget it can copy lands, so it can actually be a third way to pull off a sneaky Dark Depths combo if need be as well. That's pretty sweet.
I've run Mindslaver before here, and I ended up cutting it. It's fun, but I needed the spot for Kaladesh tech. Clutch Emrakul, the Promised End casts have won games for me before though. Helm of Awakening is pretty gnarly, I may have to test it and see if I can't make it work for me. I'm just not a fan of symmetrical effects.
As for the 100 Strip Mine s, I put 100 there because it wouldn't let me add a million. "You really need 1000000x Strip Mine, huh?" YES I DO TAPPEDOUT, MAY I PLEASE HAVE THEM? I figure if I keep that there for long enough, I will eventually get at least one.
I could use a sell on Tangle Wire . I like it, and I bet I could get it past my group, but how do I break parity with it? Clock of Omens kind of things I would guess? I mean, I guess tapping the Wire to itself is a cheeky cheat, but you seem to know something I don't that makes it go from good to incredible.
As for your puzzle, hell, challenge accepted. I too am a fan of Rube Goldberg machine plays.
- Tap Sensei's Divining Top
- Pay 2 to Rings of Brighthearth trigger using Metalworker , 2 remaining in pool
- Draw Wastes and Sensei's Divining Top
- Play Wastes (because why not honestly)
- Tap Inspiring Statuary and Clock of Omens to untap Metalworker
- Tap Metalworker again for 6 mana now, 8 mana in pool
- Turn Mirage Mirror into Rings of Brighthearth , 6 mana in pool
- Tap both Rings of Brighthearth to untap Metalworker, pay both triggers to untap both of my Rings as well
- Proceed to generate literally a googolplex of mana. Because overkill.
- Finally replay Sensei's Divining Top
- Use Rings of Brighthearth + Sensei's Divining Top with unlimited mana to draw until I get the following cards: Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre , Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger , Lightning Greaves , Swiftfoot Boots , and Strionic Resonator
- Play Kozilek, Butcher of Truth , Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre , and Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger
- Play Lightning Greaves , Swiftfoot Boots , Sculpting Steel copying either of the boots, and Strionic Resonator
- Equip each Titan with boots
- Swing one Titan each at each player
- Using infinite untaps and mana, two players entire boards disappear and one's entire deck gets exiled via Strionic Resonator spam
I'm not sure if you had a way to actually end the game proper from there in mind but this is what I came up with. One player has no deck, and the rest have no boards, so realistically everyone scoops and the hypothetical players here probably never play with me again. God I love colorless.

That was a quick reply. $70 for a mana crypt?? I'm jealous. I'm proud of my collection too, having seen Ugin, Rings, and Crypt all double in price since I bought them.
I completely understand you not wanting to start a stax arms race. I guess some people like untapping their cards, god knows why. I know you've decided against it, but Tangle Wire is so stupidly good in EDH, I just have to mention it one more time. Of all the tap effects, Wire holds a special place in my cold, dead heart.
A card I forgot to mention is Mirage Mirror , which not only can make a little mana, but can also serve as a sac outlet for Kozi due to the legend rule, as well as serve as an emergency Kozi duplicate WITH HASTE. If you're feeling combo-inclined, Mirror can duplicate Inventors' Fair to set up a near-certain win with a double-tutor. Not only that, but you aren't limited to your own permanents. See a Necropotence ? Now it's MY Necropotence.
I see you've added 100 Strip Mine s to the maybeboard. I'm not sure that's enough. Also, I've tried (and cut) Lotus Petal myself. It's decent enough in your opening hand, but pretty poor at any other point in the game.
I love coming up with puzzles and challenges involving unique interactions in these sorts of decks. To show off the power of Mirage Mirror , I've come up with a puzzle for you.
Goal: Win the game against 3 players with 40 health this turn. The top of your deck is irrelevant (let's say that all 6 Wastes are on top).
Ignore the puzzle if it's not your thing. Thanks for taking the time to give such a detailed reply.

I recommend Liquimetal Coating with Goblin Welder , Clock of Omens on the field and Myr Battlesphere in the grave allows you make infinite 1/1s, infinite recur of any artifacts you have and infinite untap of any artifacts you have and with Grinding Station it's really good. I've started using Metalwork Colossus as it's usually a 4 mana 10/10 that can save your artifacts from exile!

The thing is... It's so easy to go infinite with Teshar. You only really need two pieces and it's over: Skullclamp and Ashnod's Altar. The ridiculously low CMC of the deck allows you to play it all practically on turn 3.
But it's a good point about Rest in Peace. I didn't see the bottom half of the card, and that is indeed pretty terrible for Teshar. How often is it run in the cEDH scene ?
As for Mesmeric Orb , games shouldn't be going on long enough for it to have lasting impact. Unless you run Clock of Omens or Dross Scorpion , I fail to see how this helps you win. Is it instead to punish opponents' untapping shenanigans ?

Imperial Recruiter can snag Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker who can untap recruiter to get Village Bell-Ringer who can untap Kiki Jiki and make infinite hasty bell ringers. Imperial Recruiter can be snagged with Recruiter of the Guard .
This seems ok for a boros combo, 12 mana to go off, 15 if Recruiter of the Guard is needed. Has the benefit of two tutors, risky if you draw kiki jiki first or something.
The other combo Im looking at is rest in peace + helm of obedience. Clock of Omens can ensure a table kill.
Theres also monolith combo I guess.. gonna trawl around for more ideas.
