Clock of Omens Discussion
18 hours ago
I haven't used it myself, and I've only seen it in action in one slow, grindy casual Commander deck. It seems to work best if you have a way to untap it, like Clock of Omens or Voltaic Key , but I'm not an expert.

Sephorai, I've left out Clock of Omens , Voltaic Key , Manifold Key , etc from the main list because I didn't want the deck to feel like an artifact-oriented strategy. Definitely try them out, they have high synergy with the multi-mana producing rocks and lead to infinite combos.
About Kozilek before six, it could just be variance that you're encountering. The lack of tutors makes it hard to guarantee you have your broken ramp spells consistently, so if you continue to face this problem perhaps include some more mana rocks.

1x Tangle Wire
1x Bolt Bend Is this ever reduced for your commander?
1x Taurean Mauler It's okay but sort of unnecessary. Can have an artifact dwarf instead.
1x Torbran, Thane of Red Fell Useless in your deck, replace with a 1 mana dwarf.
1x By Force
1x Wheel of Misfortune Really unreliable, especially if all 4 players still playing.
1x Akroma's Memorial You shouldn't win by combat.
1x Illusionist's Bracers One use of commander should be more than enough to win.
1x Dwarven Thaumaturgist His effect is irrelevent.
1x Mycosynth Lattice Mana fixing for opponents, how generous.
1x Rings of Brighthearth see Illusionist's Bracers above
1x Clock of Omens Primary wincon, and at instant speed.
1x Dwarven Grunt 1 mana dwarves
1x Dwarven Scorcher 1 mana dwarves
1x Dwarven Trader 1 mana dwarves
1x Enslaved Dwarf 1 mana dwarves
1x Liberated Dwarf 1 mana dwarves
1x Proteus Machine Artifact dwarf, slotted for consistency. Unnecessary really, can be replaced with whatever.
1x Feldon of the Third Path Can create an artifact dwarf or maybe pull out a dragon that was discarded/played if game went too long.
1x Possessed Portal Use if winning and clock of omens has been dealt with or you don't have an artifact dwarf.
1x Daretti, Scrap Savant Good for rummaging or returning an artifact, since you always have a treasure in play. Can be replaced with good card draw.
1x Mystic Forge 1/4 of deck is artifacts. Can also fix dead draws to a certain extent. Can be replaced with good card draw.
1x Herald's Horn Call dwarves every time. Can be replaced with good card draw.
1x Final Fortune Can win out of nowhere. Use only if you are certain you can win. Be careful, highly recommended only if opponents appear tapped out.
Other worthy mentions I don't feel like figuring out how to slot in right now:
Outpost Siege Solid red card draw.
Commune with Lava Playable red card advantage.
Maze of Ith Use this as a spell slot, not a land slot. Can untap your own dwarves, or be used defensively.
Scrying Sheets all your lands are snow for whatever reason, so could be okay if you have nothing else to cast in a turn.
Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle with all these mountains, why not?
Command Beacon In case people kill your 1 toughness commander too many times.
Darksteel Citadel More artifacts. ONLY PUT IF you don't have color problems.
Flamekin Village Not sure if haste is important enough, but something to consider.
Inventors' Fair gives you health, but more importantly can tutor an artifact.
Madblind Mountain If you end up with a lot of top deck shenanigans.
Labyrinth of Skophos If you're being attacked.
Kher Keep Chump blockers.
Shinka, the Bloodsoaked Keep Might help seem more intimidating early game?
Sequestered Stash Can return an artifact to your DECK, and then commander can grab it.
Sea Gate Wreckage If you run out of cards and have colorless mana sources.
Quicksand Can dissuade attackers
Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx Big mana
Myriad Landscape Ramp
Mouth of Ronom If you still have too many snow lands.

Chopping block thoughts:
Unwinding Clock seems kinda meh now; this worked better with cards I've already filtered out like Lux Cannon (replaced with Ugin, the Ineffable ) and Titan Forge (which was just slow, etc.). Still works with Winding Canyons and Clock of Omens though, hmm...
Pit Trap is a dear old rattlesnake I'd part with painfully, depending on how proactive I want this slot to be. But there are certainly better options.
Improvements, highly interested in testing:

I appreciate the rec, Gontilordofmtg!
I know a lot of people are also running the Clock of Omens combo in addition to the Cloudstone Curio combo in their Magda builds, but for the moment I'm trying to avoid any infinite combos. I've actually been having a lot of fun using her as a sort of toolbox commander.
As for Sarkhan the Masterless , I still have yet to play him in a game. My hope is that my dragons, changelings, and changeling tokens from Birthing Boughs will be enough to dissuade people from swinging in when my dwarves are already turned sideways. Plus I think he's pretty flavorful for the deck.
I'd be curious to know if there are any other dragons/artifacts you think would be good tutor targets to function as removal or protection from removal. I managed to dodge a Necrotic Hex via Worldgorger Dragon in my last game, and it was hilarious to see everyone's reactions.

You might also want to consider adding Liquimetal Coating and Ashnod's Transmogrant for your Clock of Omens combo as they are much easier and faster to cast from your hand than Mycosynth Lattice and are capable of turning Magda, Brazen Outlaw into an artifact.

Just a few fun interactions would be:
Making any dwarf an artifact with Magda on the field makes it so you can create infinite treasure tokens with Clock of Omens (they'll be tapped if you keep using the tokens to make more tokens, but you could do it at instant speed.)
These might be just some wishful thinking kind of combos, but I'm really digging this new commander.
