Cool deck! Ever considered Codex Shredder or Conqueror's Galleon  Flip? Return cards from grave in colorless!

These might interest you too: Lotus Petal, Salvaging Station, Lion's Eye Diamond (infinite mana with Salvaging Station and Karn), Dross Scorpion, Cauldron of Souls, Scrapyard Recombiner (finds all kinds of dudes including Metalworker and Voltaic Construct (thanks errata!)), Meteor Golem, Scour from Existence, Null Brooch, Warping Wail (surprisingly versatile. at worst it can be used as a delayed ritual to get Karn out a turn sooner), Empowered Autogenerator, Umbral Mantle, Mirrorpool, Endbringer

Etinifni on Teshar Eggs

Sure thing! The loops all involve Teshar, a cheap artifact, a cheap creature that can return an artifact to your hand, and a way to sacrifice either an artifact, creature, or both.

Specific examples include:

Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle + Salvager of Ruin + Sol Ring + Thermal Navigator (all on the battlefield)

  • Tap Sol Ring for 2, then sacrifice it to Thermal Navigator.
  • Sacrifice the Salvager of Ruin to return Sol Ring to your hand.
  • Cast Sol Ring using 1 of the 2 floating mana, and return Salvager of Ruin to the battlefield with Teshar's trigger.
  • Repeat for infinite colorless mana.

Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle + Ashnod's Altar + Aviary Mechanic (on the battlefield) + Any Artifact that costs 2 or less (in hand)

  • Sacrifice the Aviary Mechanic (or Glint Hawk/Kor Skyfisher) to Ashnod's Altar to make 2.
  • Cast the Artifact and return the Aviary Mechanic to the battlefield with Teshar's trigger.
  • When the Mechanic enters, use its trigger to return the Artifact to your hand.
  • Cast it again with the 2 floating mana.
  • Use Golden Egg/Prophetic Prism/Ichor Wellspring/Elsewhere Flask to draw your whole deck; any artifact that costs 1 or less makes infinite colorless mana; Codex Shredder mills your opponents out.

There is one backup combo with Heliod, Sun-Crowned and Triskelion that involves giving Triskelion lifelink using Heliod's ability, then removing counters from the Triskelion to deal damage to your opponents. Each damage gains you a life, which puts a counter back on Triskelion with Heliod.

I'll be sure to go through the list and add Custom Categories so you can hopefully understand why I chose the cards I did. I'll also try to update it with a list of combos in the description.

They are actually liable win cons with Sensei's Divining Top + Kykar, Wind's Fury or Helm of Awakening. If you add enough mana rocks and Isochron Scepter + Dramatic Reversal combo, then Perpetual Timepiece you mill all your deck (I prefer Codex Shredder because it is cheaper and can mess opponents' library too)

I'd run Preordain over Impulse, Gamble over Fabricate, and Ancient Excavation over Dark Deal. Thought Scour seems kinda weak overall, and if you could fit a Codex Shredder and a Scrap Mastery to play off each other while dumping into Krark-Clan Ironworks between iterations, I'm sure you'll have a great time.

Yea, I didn't end up cutting out Power Artifact for that very reason. I just had to make room in the deck for it.

At this point if I want to take the next jump in making the deck more competitive, I think I need to pull the cards that don't enable/facilitate the combos like Blatant Thievery, Expropriate, and Rite of Replication and replace them with card draw and more tutors. But I have such love for those cards that its a hard step to take.

Based on CMC and effect Thassa's Intervention is better in every way than Pull from Tomorrow. So if I were going to pick one or the other it would be Thassa. I think Blue Sun's Zenith would be a good card to include as an alternative win condition on infinite mana to back up Codex Shredder. Dig Through Time would be good in that late game situation as well when still trying to assemble the pieces to combo off.
