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.

"Destroy target permanent."

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.

@DarthParallax

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.

Experiment Kraj. March of the Machines. Doubling Season. Sorin, Lord of Innistrad. (In no particular order, except Sorin and Kraj have to be second to last and last, or they'll see it coming and stop you if they can)

Step 1: Sorin enters the battlefield with 6 Loyalty.
Step 2: Tap,: Liquimental Coating, -> Sorin is a noncreature artifact.
Step 3: March of the Machines triggers -> Then Sorin is an artifact creature.
Step 4: Kraj can copy the abilities of artifact-creature-Planeswalkers.
Step 5: Kraj can use Sorin's Ultimate.
Step 6: Kraj can target Sorin and two others.
Step 7: Sorin re-enters the battlefield with 6 Loyalty (!)
Step 8: Sorin is counted as a new Planeswalker, and Kraj can use his ability* (this is where I could be wrong)
Step 9: Target opponent calls a target judge, seeing what you're about to do. The Judge resolves, and either you go back and stop at Step 7, or you proceed to Step 10.
Step 10: Experiment Kraj goes infinite wi... (see all)

why is everyone saying vandal? thats a terrible card. go with Master Thief or Gorilla Shaman or Trygon Predator or Artifact Mutation or Shatter Spree or Copy Artifact or Splinter or...... the list continues but my fingers do not. anywho, I love this card and u need to play it right. Complement it with the above and its great little friends like Myr Landshaper and Neurok Transmuter so you're not relying on getting liquimetal. I like the thought of ancient stirrings. I'd never thought of that. thats a wonderful search for this type of deck and im probably going to add them to mine soon. thanks ugotpauld. now i won't be frustrated when i randomly can't seem to get one

Great card to have in a mana-screwing deck. Turn 2, this, turn 3, turn an opponent's land into an artifact and Manic Vandal it, and they'd be down to 1 or 2 lands.

Combos with... a few hundred cards, probably. But is just an enabler! Now, I love combos as much as the next guy, but each piece of a good combo should do something useful on its own to deserve merit. This card just falls short. Great flavor, very cool effects, but that doesn't mean it's a good card.

4 Liquimetal Coatings, 4 Tezeeret, Agent of Bolas, and as any artifact breakers and creature destroyers you can get in there.

This card is awesome. Use with Karn, Silver Golem to create the effect 1: Destroy target land or aura. (Auras that become creatures are placed into the graveyard as a state based action.)

4.5/5!

No, it would not remain an artifact. The "until end of turn" effect rides with the effect even if the originating card has left. Thus, the target will still see that it is only an artifact until end of turn. The effect resolved, thus it completes as normal.

This is my new favorite card. This turn 2, Memnarch turn 4, stole a creature and stole Garuk turn 5 (opponent didn't see "permanent" on it, and thought creatures only...)
