This is one of my most favorite Magic cards ever printed. The sheer amount of shenanigans you can pull with this lady is insane. The moment you realize she can bounce an artifact for one blue, your brain will explode with combo possibilities.

Goblin Welder in reverse.

(Also shows how obscenely overpowered Goblin Welder really is, when you compare its cost and activation to this.)

I really want to put together a deck that does this:

T1: Show a Chancellor of the Tangle from your hand, Forest, play Birds of Paradise or Llanowar Elves x2
T2: Island, drop Master Transmuter
T3: Island, play Memnite, tap an Island & Birds (or whatever) x2 for Treasure Mage, search up your library for Blightsteel Colossus or Steel Hellkite & let the swapping begin! :)

Obviously you need a couple lucky draws, but damn that'd be fun.

My bro and I were talking about how Phyrexians would probably like the Esperians, seeing how they "augment" their bodies with metal and all, when he told me to view this card sideways. Look closely behind the Transmuter, and you'll see what looks a lot like the mark of Phyrexia. Coincidence? Probably.

Looks like a very useful card, though the Etherium body is freaky.

I'd tap that... to drop a darksteel colossus on the fourth turn.

How do you turn Ornithopter into Draco?

She may be half artifact, and I may be crazy, but she's still somewhat hot.

"why would anyone use this for a darksteel colossus, when they could use this for a darksteel forge"

Why would you use this for a Darksteel Forge, when you could use this for a Blightsteel Colossus and just win next turn?

I'm surprised that nobody's mentioned another wonderful application of this little gem. Yeah, you can Tinker out your Blightsteel Colossus on turn 5 with no ramp (earlier if you build your deck around it), but a more subtle - and potentially just as useful - use is to protect your artifacts. Naturalize on your Memnarch? Nope, that Memnarch is now a Silver Myr. The Myr doesn't even get Naturalized since the target is no longer on the field. Throwing your horde of small artifact creatures at your opponent's big bruisers? Just tap a couple Transmuters... (see all)

Definitely a favorite in my artifact deck. Does this trigger Mishra, Artificer Prodigy's ability? He says Whenever you play an artifact spell, ... That means you have to cast it, yes? Otherwise I'd have broken things happening here. One neat trick, I drew a prototype portal, I'll return this one from the field and play it to prototype a prototype. Infinitely copy things. Like the new Mirrorworks, she's gunna help me break that. Mainly I like Bottle Cloister Ensnaring Bridge and Venser's Journal .. play lots of bottles, draw lots of cards, then gain lots of life... Paradox haze upsets most people. Then I return bridge to my hand with transmuter if I need to get through it's ability, recast it and laugh cuz I have no hand on your turn. =) My friends scoop if I prototype the bridge.. which master transmuter just lets me choose to prototype anything, even if I already played it. =) I must have a set of her..

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
