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.

Sorry I haven't been on to respond in a while. I've been busy with work and haven't been playing much as my LGS still hasn't opened tables up to Magic players. I may not know much about some of these new cards, but I'll still offer some advice on running artifacts in EDH. (Most of my experience is with Sydri, Galvanic Genius in A Pile of Cans so feel free to check that out.) First, I'd try to narrow down to a particular approach to build around. Osgir, the Reconstructor offers a range of options in this regard. Then, you can make swaps for cards that synergize more with that chosen approach.

One option I see is running as many low-cmc artifacts as possible to minimize how much you have to spend on your commander's activated ability. The best bet for this might be the new modular cards. They have small bodies that can be buffed by Osgir after combat and give extra benefits on being killed off themselves. Bonus points if you can afford Arcbound Ravager. Modular is not actually a triggered ETB so you can't get more benefit from Panharmonicon, but I'll touch on that more later. Other options include Bomat Courier, Epochrasite, Gingerbrute, and Sorcerer's Broom. Making lots of token creatures makes a go-wide plan with Steel Overseer, Chief of the Foundry, Signal Pest, and the like more viable. Anything else that produces thopters or servos fits too. Untapping Osgir is probably more mana efficient than copying his ability with this approach.

The exact opposite gameplan is also possible. Run plenty of ramp artifacts like Basalt Monolith, Thran Dynamo, Blinkmoth Urn, and Hedron Archive to play and duplicate overwhelming threats. Darksteel Forge, Soul of New Phyrexia, Platinum Angel, Platinum Emperion, Spine of Ish Sah, Bosh, Iron Golem, Phyrexian Triniform, and Summoning Station are the first options I can think of. Unfortunately, such cards do tend to be less budget friendly. I think it would also be worth distinguishing between a plan using death and entry triggers and one using taps and untaps. The former is where Panharmonicon comes back into play along with Mirrorworks, Prototype Portal, and the refurbish-ers like Goblin Welder. The latter is where Unwinding Clock is king along with its little brothers Clock of Omens, Voltaic Construct, and Voltaic Key. (Both choices can also apply to a more aggressive approach of course.) Here, copying Osgir's ability is likely to be more efficient than untapping him.

Some other artifacts I'm a fan of that are always useful are Mirage Mirror, Kuldotha Forgemaster, and Scourglass. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll try to get back as soon as I'm able. I apologize in advance if that means a few days.

The combo works with Karn's ability and Voltaic Construct. It works like these: You tap any 3 mana artifact for mana, use 1 of the 3 to activate karn's ability transforming the artifact you tapped for mana into creature, then just activate construct's ability to the untap the artifact you just transformed into creature, then tap it again for 3 mana (but now, as it's a creature too until end of turn) you just activate construct using 2 mana. You're left with 1 floating everytime this happens.

Hope to helped you, tks for the comment :)

Yarok Tks a lot for the help. Well, the main strategy of the deck is to assemble a combo to win the game. The combos in the deck right now are: - Mycosynth Lattice + Darksteel Forge + Nevinyrral's Disk = wipe opponent's board

That's all I could thought, achieving this slowly and trying not to cause to much atention.

Here’s an infinite mana combo that might be of interest to you:

Karn, Silver Golem + 3-mana rock (Gilded Lotus/Pyramid of the Pantheon preferred since they make it colored mana) + Voltaic Construct.

Target your rock with Karen’s ability, tap the rock for 3 mana, untap for 2 mana with the construct. Net one mana every time. Might be too slow for cEDH though...

With infinite mana such as Grand Architect and Pili-Pala : Manascape Refractor + Karn, Silver Golem + Voltaic Construct + Stensia Bloodhall can now ping for infinite in monoblue. (use the Bloodhall's ability with the Refractor and untap it repeatedly as a creature with Karn and Voltaic Construct)
