Good morning. In my quest to build combo Kaalia, I decided to better utilize Razaketh loops, I'd be best to adapt a sort of "Eggs" approach, with Second Sunrise, Gerrard, Weatherlight Hero (plus Shallow Grave effects naitch) so that I could keep getting my bodies back to sac to Razaketh for more tutours. Obviously you'd optimally transition to the relic-warder + animate dead loop at this point, but stay with me here. What if that's not the end game? Since we're looping Gerrard like this, and he brings artifacts back too, this makes lotus petal and the "Ramos" series of three drop rocks more attractive. Mind Stone too, because you can get a lot of draws.

I don't want to use Krark Clan Ironworks. It's 4 and outside of this interaction, it isn't really lending itself much to the deck. So I'm looking for something at the 2 slot, repeatable, and ideally is a free sac but I'll settle for a 1 activation. It can't tap though (so no Phyrexia's Core).

There's got to be some easy and overtly obvious card I'm missing here, right? Help a fellow nexus user out. TIA

Claws of Gix? Not free to activate, but sacrifices anything, gains life (which can be relevant for Razaketh), and free to cast.

I've come across this one. I'm afraid it might be the best I've got. Which I guess is fine, it still nets a mana with a Ramos stone.

I guess Atog is another one. Arcbound Ravager then...

A quick gatherer search for 'sacrifice an artifact' yielded the following (free to activate, instant speed) options:
Defiant Salvager
Extruder
Gnathosaur
Greater Gargadon
Krark-Clan Grunt
Krark-Clan Shaman
Megatog
Oxidda Daredevil
Ravenous Intruder
Rusted Slasher
Sarcatog
Slobad, Goblin Tinkerer
Thermal Navigator

So nothing quite as obscenely powerful as KCI or Arcbound Ravager, but nonetheless you have some options, depending on how janky you want to get :)

The best options are already listed, but also possible are Infernal Tribute and Magmaw.

Do we really need one though? Most of the ones you mentioned sac themselves for profit?
