MTG Combo: Basalt Monolith + Zirda, the Dawnwaker

libraryjoy on Messing with Lore

As always, what's my budget, what cards do you own/not own? That's the first step. Maybe artifacts like similar to Ichor Wellspring, like Filigree Familiar that give you benefits for entering the battlefield. You definitely need at least 3 more lands. Buried Ruin should be one of them. Boros Garrison is another good include. I'm not a fan of Mindslaver, myself. It's too mean. My current favorite Boros combo is Basalt Monolith + Zirda, the Dawnwaker for infinite colorless mana. I always like to have Elixir of Immortality to bounce my graveyard back to my library, especially if there are mill effects involved. I like Darksteel Forge and Darksteel Reactor, but your mileage may vary. Foundry Inspector would definitely not be a bad idea. Maybe something like Stensia Masquerade or Archetype of Courage to give your team first strike, if you don't want to pony up for Akroma's Memorial. Puppet Strings is a good way to get an extra activation of your commander. Scrap Mastery is good. I'm also a fan of Darksteel Juggernaut. Sorry this is pretty scattered. I hope it gives you some ideas. Here are a couple of artifact decks I've built in the past, that you may find interesting:
