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.

YES!

"Target permanent becomes a combo."

or

"Destroy target permanent."

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

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)

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.

I want to use this with Bazaar Trader and Metallic Mastery, but no. This card should be a mythic, not because of its power but because of how rare it actually is. Me and my housemate, between us, have opened up ONE.

I like this card, I wish they would print a twin. Would love to have 8 of these in a deck. very creative card. Wish it could mark all cards like painter's servant with artifact type, now that would be funny.

Barring the printing of liquimetal coating's twin (for a set of 8) I wish there were an artifact that could fetch other artifacts for under 4 mana, but that would probably be a game-wrecking card for many formats so nvm... just print us a liquimetal coating twin and it will be good.

@jerkoid: Simplest way to break Horseshoe Crab and Grand Architect is with Mycosynth Lattice. Gets around the pesky need for it to be blue mana to untap. Then you don't even need the coating.

Another approach to get a similar effect (with fewer cards) is to enchant Vedalken Engineer with Freed from the Real or Pemmin's Aura, then turn the aura into an artifact. But there are even easier ways to turn one of those auras into infinite mana, such as with Bloom Tender.

@Chamale: Better than that, March of the Machines actually turns this into "Tap: Destroy target land or target Aura."

@ugotpauld: Magnetic Mine will trigger if you destroy something that's temporarily an artifact. Triggers that look at objects on the battlefield care about the current properties of those objects, regardless of whether th... (see all)

@Mode: only Splinter becomes an awesome basic-land hoser: Echoing Ruin only destroys artifacts that share a name with target artifact, so it is an awesome hoser.. of one land (or up to four if you're running four of this bad boy)

Hey look! An extremely broken artifact! We ARE on Mirrodin! And if you want more then 4, look no further then its broken friends: Prototype Portal and Mirrorworks! And if that's not enough we have Shattering Spree or Shatterstorm and now (in the same block even) Creeping Corrosion! I'm making a {U}{R}{G} deck based around this.

Possibly one of the best removal in the game.

This + Shatter + Naturalize + Viridian Corrupter + Hoard-Smelter Dragon. I'm sure there are others that can be used in this way as well.

All you have to do is turn anything you want to get rid of on your opponents side into an artifact with this, then destroy that artifact. A very aggressive, deny land and mass removal card if used correctly.
