When partisan spies warned that "no armor" would protect the body from Phyrexian infection, Neurok strategists took that entirely literally and armed their agents with nothing but panties and blindfolds.

That's using your heads there, guys.

The card is not good.

The card's art is fantastic! The composition is fantastic, and it has just the right amount of contrast to offset the heavy blue tones. The geometric shapes in the background are reminiscent of artifacts of old, which often were set in abstract backgrounds rather than within a specific location. It's also has a bit of the Vitruvian Man inspiration going for it, which is cool -- and somewhat ironic -- from a flavor standpoint.

When I first read this card´s flavor text I thought it would be good against infect. Boy was I wrong.

I'm trying to build a deck around this card just because it's so sexy (I have a foil :P):

20 Plains

4 Gold Myr
4 Silverskin Armor
4 Sword of Vengeance

4 Ornithopter
4 Etched Champion
4 Steel Overseer
4 Puresteel Paladin
4 Indomitable Archangel

4 Tempered Steel

4 Dispatch

Side:

4 Divine Offering
4 Safe Passage
4 Day of Judgement


So in theory, the silverskin armors will be shrouded and have "equip: 0" YAY!! Plus they will draw me a card.

When I first read the flavor text, I thought it would do something about infect counters. Boy was I wrong!

I like how this evokes Terese Nielson's M10 illustrations for Holy Strength, Unholy Strength, and Lifelink. In fact, I like Nielson's illustrations in general, regardless of the cards they appear on.

That being said, this is meant for turning on Metalcraft and making Tempered Steel decks even meaner. Slap this onto Mirran Crusader making it into a 3/3 Double Striker. With Tempered Steel in play, Mirran Crusader is then a 5/5 White Artifact Creature - Human Knight with Double Strike and Pro black and Pro green. Cool!

Another artifact for Metalcraft ?
Bonus for nonartifact creatures from Tempered Steel ?
Protection from Go for the Throat ?

It has uses. Its just that none of them are spectacular when compared to the craziness that is liquimetal coating.

Well... eh... I dunno. Kinda helps with Metalcraft? And the +1/+1 buff is always welcome. But I'll admit, I'm reaching here.
