Similar to cards with Platinum in their name, if your opponent plays a card with Voltaic in it's name you should probably shatter it as quickly as possible. Or you can die.

@Zulp: true, flavor text ftw

training grounds + palladium myr

Then do whatever it is you do with infinite mana. My personal favorite is to play Myr Matrix.
Heartstone works just as well as training grounds if you don't want to play blue and don't mind the extra cost.

Ironically this wasn't originally a construct. (Because the construct creature type didn't exist at that time.)

Steel Overseer. I actually agree with MasterOfEtherium here about it being "Voltaic Key-ish". It's more expensive, but at the same time more repeatable.

Guilded Lotus? Everflowing Chalice? Are these creatures now?

I'm giving this a 5 for the stupid combos it enables. Here's a walkthrough: Materials needed: Voltaic Construct, Karn Silver Golem, Planar Portal, and any artifact that taps to add 3 to your mana pool (I'll use Thran Dynamo for this example). First pay 1 to animate the Dynamo with Karn. Tap Dynamo, adding 3 to your mana pool. Use 2, untap it with Voltaic Construct, and repeat to get infinite mana. Then, with that mana, play planar portal and search your library for any card and put it in your hand. Now, use 1 mana to animate the portal. Then use 2 mana to untap the portal. Now search again, and again, until you have every card in your library (minus lands) in your hand. How will I finish my opponent? I'll play darksteel forge, nevinyrral's disk, and mycosynth lattice. Now, I animate the disk for 1, untap it for 2, and pop it (pray there isn't a Return to Dust response). Now you are unstoppable, so...use the portal to tutor for Emrakul the Aeons Torn, and play him, getting ... (see all)

The flavor text is what matters here, people.

Oh, and Colossus of Sardia. If you're into that sort of thing.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
