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.......

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.
