Kurkesh, Onakke Ancient

Legendary Creature — Ogre Spirit

Whenever you activate an ability of an artifact, if it isn't a mana ability, you may pay {R}. If you do, copy that ability. You may choose new targets for the copy.

Suspects: Distorting Lens , Jaya Ballard, Task Mage , & Kurkesh, Onakke Ancient . Sadly I have no Replacement effect for Discard in case one ends up Resting in Peace in Hell... Any ideas in Boros Color?

I think it all depends on what you want your infinite loop to do. As previously stated, you generally need a minimum of 2 cards to create a loop, but that's useless if there's no triggered ability that continuously goes on the stack adding mana/doing damage/drawing cards/milling your opponents.

Thus, all infinite combos trying to pull off some of the aforementioned effects need at least 3 cards.

My commander suggestions and best best for highly combo intensive decks based on artifacts would be Sharuum the Hegemon , Breya, Etherium Shaper (which includes most of the Sharuum combos) and Kurkesh, Onakke Ancient .

A major part of why And I'll Pay a Red | Only 5 Red Spells! *PRIMER* does so well is because Kurkesh, Onakke Ancient is so underestimated. He comes out of nowhere and steals games, its fantastic.

The important thing to note here is where the colon falls in the activated ability. Anything before the colon is the cost, and anything after is the effect. Kurkesh, Onakke Ancient will duplicate the effect, but the cost doesn't need to be paid twice.

Because Bosh, Iron Golem 's ability has "sacrifice an artifact" in the cost, you only need to sacrifice one, and the duplicated effect will look to that creature both times to know how much damage to deal.

If the ability instead read: "3R: Sacrifice an artifact. Bosh, Iron Golem deals damage...," then you would have to sacrifice another artifact for the duplicated ability because it's part of the effect.

So if I activate Bosh, Iron Golem , and then activate Kurkesh, Onakke Ancient , targeting Bosh's ability, do I need to pay the activation cost for Bosh again, or, does Kurdish simply copy the damage effect?

This is a good starting point to look at a large number of ideas:

https://edhrec.com/themes/artifacts

Karn, Silver Golem is...not cheap... so maybe not the one you want but I've had a lot of fun with him over the years. He does some really odd and rather busted things. Mycosynth Lattice allows pay to kill target land and he can pay to remove equipped equipment.

Glissa, the Traitor is interesting being in colors that hardly support artifacts but makes for an awesome stax or voltron commander. Having your opponents blow stuff up only for you to play it again and again is silly.

Kurkesh, Onakke Ancient honestly I've never seen him played. He doesn't appear to be that popular... But a limited Rings of Brighthearth has a lot of potential.

Bosh, Iron Golem I've played him in the 99 of some decks and late in a game he can be extremely useful. With cards like Spine of Ish Sah and Meteor Golem you could have a lot of fun.
