Cogwork Assembler

Artifact Creature — Assembly-Worker

: Create a token that's a copy of target artifact. That token gains haste. Exile it at the beginning of the next end step.

Forsaken monument and sun are exactly the kind of payoff cards that you should be looking for - stuff that cares about your creatures, draws cards and makes more mana.

Myr propogator is a weird one - I've run cloning effects with Followed Footsteps and Cogwork Assembler type effects, which can be strong, but they mostly need something else to make them great.

Propagator is a little slower than them due to the tap + cost, but also a little more resilient due to both myr having the tap effects. If you were shooting for a Myr Galvanizer combo deck propagator will works as a payoff, with a backup where you were sacrificing tokens to trade for cards on a stalled boardstate, or perhaps were generating tons of mana with a myr Priest of Titania (if they print more myr support) it might be great, but it just needs a lot of other cards to work - haste for the tap cost, 3 mana for the price, ands its still a 1/1.

Short of shenaigans with something like Dollhouse of Horrors Necrotic Ooze or Mindlink Mech, I'm not a fan. It just takes a lot of cards to make paying 3 mana for a 1/1 artifact token to be good.

I say cut Sure-Footed Infiltrator, Terror of Mount Velus, and Myr Battlesphere, you can definitely put in better and cheaper CMC cards then these.

You may have too many thopters for Thopter Assembly to be useful unless you have brudiclad out.

You probably don't have enough artifact copying for Powerstone Shard to work. Saheeli, Sublime Artificer, Mirrorworks, Prototype Portal, and even Cogwork Assembler can fill this gap.

Replace Tamiyo's Journal with Goblin Assault unless you use the search ability.

Feldon of the Third Path and Faerie Artisans may help.

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.
