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

Nonary27 There are a lot of competitive/fringe competitive commanders in both sets.
Cormela, Glamour Thief combos with reanimator spells like Footsteps of the Goryo as long as you have cost reduction cards like Goblin Electromancer or a sac outlet that generates mana. I think she's pretty strong. Anhelo, the Painter is a grixis version of Kalamax, the Stormsire. Probably the best of the new Grixis commanders. Evelyn, the Covetous is weaker than it looks. I don't think there is an infinite blink/flicker/cloning combo piece that's also a vampire. Probably not better than Vela the Night-Clad, even with the extra color. Lord Xander, the Collector has a big impact on casual tables, but is nowhere near as relevant in competitive play. Would put him somewhere close to Evelyn.
Falco Spara, Pactweaver is an okay value engine, but you have to jump through extra hoops to go infinite with it compared to Elsha of the Infinite, so it will be a few tiers lower than Elsha. Rigo, Streetwise Mentor has to compete with Edric, Spymaster of Trest, they want to do more or less the same thing. I'm not sure if Rigo is better or worse.
Ognis, the Dragon's Lash does the same as Grand Warlord Radha. You get an extra color, but have the restriction regarding haste in exchange. Henzie "Toolbox" Torre is just a bad Grim Haruspex that can serve as pseudo-haste-enabler. Not weak, but also not very strong. Rocco, Cabaretti Caterer is a Wargate for creatures in the command zone. Might be the strongest Naya legend to date, although Marath, Will of the Wild is no joke either. Jolene, the Plunder Queen enables untap combos with Black Market Tycoon, but it just ends up being a much worse version of the Freed from the Real combos that other commanders can do.
None of the others are worth mentioning imo.
Commander Legends 2
Abdel Adrian, Gorion's Ward is similar to Lagrella, all about Fiend Hunter-type flicker/sacrifice combos. Candlekeep Sage is probably the best background for it. Alaundo the Seer is a simic version of Jhoira of the Ghitu, except that it's slower, but also draws cards. Bhaal, Lord of Murder is more or less an Odric's Outrider in the command zone, but that it only counts for nontoken creatures means you can't combo with Scurry Oak, so it's probably not that great. I think Duke Ulder Ravengard combos with Port Razer?
Gale, Waterdeep Prodigy sort of gives all your instants & sorceries flashback, which is usually very powerful. Not sure how good it ends up being in practice however. Ganax, Astral Hunter is basically just Galazeth Prismari. Kagha, Shadow Archdruid is yet another Golgari recursion commander, which are usually at least decent. Jan Jansen, Chaos Crafter goes infinite with Clock of Omens and Liquimetal Coating.

Well, the Maze's End price spike is starting. Interesting that it had a spike just before New Capenna and then came down. Did people think gates would be in that set or something?
Gond's Gate looks good. I wonder who the new gates commander will be now that Golos is banned (such a stupid banning). Perhaps we will see one spoiled in this set?
Alaundo is reeeeeeaaaaallly interesting. Jhoira of the Ghitu was one of my first commanders, but she is too slow by today's standards. Alaundo is in a stronger color pair and you can cascade up the mana curve if you order your "suspended" creatures correctly. I like this one.
Jan Jensen is also really cool. Definitely breakable with Clock of Omens and a card like Liquimetal Torque to turn Jan into an artifact. But I just like him because he is the first commander since Feldon of the Third Path that makes me want to jam my deck full of Phyrexian Triniform-esq artifact creatures and keep bringing them back. His ability doesn't actually bring them back like Feldon's does, but something about him made me instantly think about that strat. Make a legendary Goblin Welder you cowards!

Might be of interest to you.
Some game winning combos focused on Food, the second is pretty budget friendly too.

Been messing around with Food token combos this week as it's an archetype I haven't tried to break yet and breaking Food Tokens seemed like it could be fun to try. Don't think I've managed to break Food in general, but there are some pretty stronk combos out there that employ Food as it turns out.
Cauldron Familiar + Gilded Goose + Cloudstone Curio + Phyrexian Altar was the first one that came to mind, taking the classic Standard combo of Familiar Oven and turning it up to 11 by making it an infinite loop. Curio and Altar in play, cast Familiar, sac Familiar to Altar for a , cast the Gilded Goose, make food, sac the food to bring back Familiar and bouncing Goose to hand. Rinse repeat to kill the table. Cool, but no where near awkward enough for the kinds of casual decks I like to make for games at the LGS. So I dug deeper looking for a sillier iteration of the line.
Academy Manufacturer + Witch's Oven + Cauldron Familiar + Clock of Omens was where I ended up next, still relatively card slot efficient but NOW we're using some much goofier cards and since the only requirement is Black as a color I can slap this combo into any old deck with Black as a color. Tap the Oven, sac the Familiar, make a Food, Treasure, and Clue, tap the Food and the Clue to untap the Oven, sac the food to bring back the Familiar. Rinse repeat to not only kill the table, but, just in case, also begin a loop that ultimately generates infinite mana and infinite card draw as that Treasure token is still lying around unused and it's possible to simply tap the Treasures to start using the Clues to draw out. Much more ridiculous due to the overkill factor of generating infinite damage, draw, and mana all at once.
Yeah, this is what I do in my spare time. Or while just driving down the highway mentally drifting off.

For your Tic Toc Boom combo, it does make infinite myrs but using Blasting Station/Grinding Station to untap with Clock of Omens is not the same as using their abilities, so it does not mill or deal damage to anyone. You would need to have both of them in play at once to kill with the combo, so one of them taps for the clock and the other sacs the myr.

Thanks for the comment!
Shimmer Dragon is great but I'm going to be mainly tapping all my artifacts with Glacian, so I won't get as much use out of him. Plus, I only have one copy of it and it's in my Urza deck (where it's really strong!)
Arcane Signet is already in the deck and Worn Powerstone, which I'm pretty sure was something that was in previous versions of the deck and was cut. You have to be really mindful of CMC/MV of your artifacts with this deck, so it isn't something that I think I'd add in.
Clock of Omens targets the artifact it's untapping which won't work with Rebbec on the board, sadly.
Phyrexian Metamorph is awesome, but my 4CMC slot is packed and I don't know what I'd take out for it.
Enlightened Tutor is great but I'm waiting for a reprint on that one. (I also thought it only grabbed enchantments, but that's on me lol)

Some suggestions. I didn't look through all your comments, so if some of these have been suggested/cut already, I apologize.
Shimmer Dragon - This card seems to be gross in almost any artifact deck.
Clock of Omens is often ridiculous in artifact deck, but you'd have to decide if you'd want/need it.
Phyrexian Metamorph is standard good artifact tech.
Also I'd get that Enlightened Tutor when you get a chance.
