I like this idea, but I'm going to call for artifact cloning effects so you can threaten to combo out with powerstone shard. Cogwork Assembler was the pressure valve in standard, but pioneer opens up some moreoptions for it - even just including 1 cogwork in your list is an incredible win condition in matches that stall out, making every powerstone a threat and every whir a something that needs a hard answer.

I don’t see how you’re ever getting enough mana to use the ability of Cogwork Assembler. Even with Sculpting Steel and Mirrormade it feels like the absolute fastest you could realistically trigger the ability is turn 5, after having done nothing to disrupt or pressure the opponent at all until then (and still not winning from this first trigger). It just feels like this idea is too slow…

Birgi, God of Storytelling  Flip + Hazoret's Monument + Grinning Ignus

Someone already mentioned a variation of this, but with these three cards you can generate infinite colorless mana and draw as many cards as you need. (You'll also have a free red mana floating at any given point in time.) You then draw into your wincon which will be either Cogwork Assembler, Comet Storm, Conflagrate, Fireball, Meteor Shower or Walking Ballista.

You could also make Blasting Station, Fiery Bombardment, Goblin Bombardment, Makeshift Munitions, Mask of Immolation, Mortarpod or Weaponize the Monsters a wincon here. With your infinite colorless mana you could just cast your commander, sacrifice her to deal a damage and then recast and repeat. Birgi, God of Storytelling  Flip will refund whatever red mana you spend throughout any of these processes.

This was a deck in standard where you got 7 mana powerstones for Cogwork Assembler right?

There are some interesting alternatives in modern - untap effects, Saheeli Rai and Saheeli, Sublime Artificer. Clock of Omens shenanigans, Voltaic Construct or Aura of Dominion shenanigans with Singing Bell Strike as a combined removal/combo piece, trying to stick a Dramatic Reversal on a turn with temporary clones. Voltaic Key/Manifold Key can do a lot too.

In terms of powerstone alternatives, Gilded Lotus and Nyx Lotus is popular, while Liquimetal Torque opens up creature combos. Chromatic Orrery is pretty much built for this kind of combo.

Cloning effects - Mirage Mirror, Mirrormade, Mizzium Transreliquat, Prototype Portal are notable.

There is a lot to work with in terms of artifact support, even for cloning, so best of luck.

While having Ifnite mana you can play Cogwork Assembler , good way to find win coin with Commander. I am trying to piece my own version of this deck.

@Ramble I completely missed Cogwork Assembler. Thank you for suggesting it. Given I'm compiling cards that fit my criteria I'll be adding it to my initial post for easier future reference if you don't mind.

@RambIe; Cogwork Assembler is another good artifact way to win. Good choice!

What I like about the assembler is that it's got value even without going infinite. Given, the activation cost is high, but there are many artifacts you could be targeting that provide profound game state changes when abused with the assembler. And it can always just target itself so the least you would get is infinite hasted 2/3s.
