When life gives you lemons turn them into artifacts.

Viashino Heretic = {1}{R}, {T} Your permanents are on fire
March of the Machines = {T} Your lands are suddenly disappering
Splinter = {T} A great way to ensure you'll never play magic with that person again.

I've found LC most useful as a support card/subtheme. Like you can add a liquimetal to a red Eldrazi deck and add in things like Manic Vandal, and go with Lightning Bolt AND Galvanic Blast for fun.

I've also seen a deck that used this to coat Indomitable Archangel for laughs.

"Target permanent becomes a combo."


"Destroy target permanent."

Too bad I can only run four of this card.......

Target Basic land... Cast Splinter

As a part-time Johnny, full-time Vorthos and almost-never Spike, my definition of a card's usefulness is based not around the power of its stats or its efficiency in getting card advantage, but rather on its abiility to contribute to some sort of plan or purpose. Therefore, while I can't claim this is the most powerful card in the set (by itself it does nothing, and a deck designed to use it with a bunch of Naturalizes has a bunch of dead cards if it fails to draw a copy - you'll notice that despite its low potency, it cannot be fetched with Trinket Mage and that was almost certainly deliberate), it is almost unuqestionably one of the most useful. As I work on my project of building 36 decks using cards from only this set, trying to make them as different as possible, this card pops up again and again. It can do little tiny tricks like getting you faster metalcraft or sacking a basic land to Ferrovore, or it can make immense plays like the nightmarish Splinter combo an... (see all)

Liquimetal Coating + Sculpting Steel = Copy Target Permanent.

Memnarch, I am disappoint. You would have gone so well with this card, but you freaking died. At least in limited it goes well with cards like Oxidda Scrapmelter, Hoard-Smelter Dragon and Revoke Existence.

Well, looks like the opponent's running Go for the Throat. Shields up!

Sorry, but loyalty abilities with negative numbers requires that many loyalty counters to be used as a rule, regardless of creature or planeswalker. Make a 1/1 lifelink vamp with Kraj instead, and use Elvish Aberration and Gilder Bairn's abilities with Kraj to spam loyalty counters on both Sorin and Kraj himself. Steal three dudes with Sorin, and steal six of them every following turn you have. As an alternative or just for the heck of it because you can, use Splinter Twin and Mirror Gallery (to stop the Legendary rule) on Kraj and make infinite of those little vamps in the process.

Phylactery Lich, anyone?

@Speednat Technically Planeswalkers still count as permanents. It's just that they are valid targets for attacking with your creatures (like how you say you're attacking Player C in a multiplayer game, the planeswalker is a valid target), and "306.7. If noncombat damage would be dealt to a player by a source controlled by an opponent, that opponent may have that source deal that damage to a planeswalker the first player controls instead."

And since they are still considered a Permanent, Naturalize/Shatter will still work on them with this.

Or you could have more fun... :)
This + "target artifact becomes an artifact creature" effect at instant speed (take your pick, magic has a bunch, but I like Karn, Silver Golem for this) + Mimic Vat + Planeswalker of your Choice = Planeswalker Tokens! (Mind you they die after just one turn, but quite a few planeswalkers can still fire off their second abilities (The... (see all)

EVIL CARD. When it works, you want to punch your opponents. But most of the time the deck just falls apart.

This+Mizzium Transreliquat. (1)(R)(U): Mizzium Transreliquat becomes a copy of target permanent permanently, and gains this ability...

My favorite, Covetous Dragon, still my favorite dragon. Turn Covetous into an artifact, turn the Transreliquat into a copy, the new Covetous is a 6/5 Artifact Creature!

@Speednat: In theory, but there's currently no way to target make a player targetable as a permanent. :P

Hell yeah, naturalize that planeswalker
Posted By: adrian.malacoda (4/5/2012 9:06:20 PM)


Play in a green /red deck specializing in blowing stuff up ....Nautralize becomes ; destroy target permenant , shatter the same , and you could use crush to destroy lands and other non creature things . Also ,run the hoard dragon who lets you burn artifacts . Its just : Tap this , pay 4 , melt what ever you dont like on the field and gain a good boost . Is it worth building a deck around ?

I'm gonna do this with Isochron Scepter and Naturalize. then proceed to have a two mana burn any permanent spell.

Maybe my way of thinking is off, but with a Planeswalker, I thought that they were treated similar to the player. Spells targeting creatures wouldn't target a Planeswalker, only spells targeting players. When you artifact-ify them and shatter them is that allowed. Couldn't you just do the same to the player?
