i love cards like this - ones that are obviously broken pieces, waiting to be abused. WoTC just leaves them to be exploited by us and rest well knowing combos have been unleashed and the game is more complex than they'd left it.

Use with the zero-cost Kobolds and then pick the Storm card of your choice.

Like Dream Halls and Intruder Alarm, this combos with everything. There has got to be 1000 ways to break this thing.

With no doubt a Johnny card.

The permanent likely has to be a non-artifact since this would enable making loops with 0 mana artifacts to easy. However, there are red cards you can have twelve times in your deck nonetheless.
Glimpse of Nature for instance is an excellent card to abuse this.

But i think it could also in general find use to trigger cip/etb effects of cheap creatures multiple times, especially those with echo since you can return them rather than paying their cost.

Spirit decks which trigger on every Spirit oder Arcane spell should also be able to profit from this artifact if you have two one-drops.

Amazing combo card. As rubber said cloud of faeries just breaks this card. Play certain mana ramp artifacts like chrome mox or lotus petal with some ancient tombs to ramp this artifact out and say for fun a genesis chamber with its good old friend KCI to establish a solid combo plateform. Get the first cloud of faeries out and then bring out the second one, see if they have any counterspells for them if not all they can do is sit back or scoop cause congradulations, you have yourself infinite myr tokens to feed for infinite mana, but here's the real icing on the cake, rake up that infinite trigger and then just cast brain freeze for a potential turn 3 win with an unconventional brain freeze storm combo.

I like cards like this; ones that obviously are combo pieces. WotC just leaves us to figure out how to use them.

Shrine of Burning Rage can easily stand in for Grapeshot in a kobold kombo.

While funny. Liquimetal coating wouldn't actually stop the combo. The only "nonartifact" restriction is on the creature coming into play. By the time you can target the kobold that was played, the ability from the curio is already on the stack and will bounce any creature, even if its an artifact creature.

What, they gave it to us thinking it wouldn't be broken?
Another super combo card. The non-artifact clause is probably to avoid abuse with zero-costed stuff. That still doesn't mean you can't get around the restriction though - Aluren and Animar, Soul of Elements are obvious.

so happy this is modern legal. i was a big fan of grapeshot elves or elves to combo out emrakul turn 2. glimpse of nature being banned in modern however, made those seem impossible. not with this guy, however :-)

everytime you play an elf, you can bounce an elvish visionary or even better, a sylvan messenger. coupled with nettle sentinel and heritage druid, you can bounce visionary and play it again. and the elves combo comes back to life :-)

Yes, this is modern legal. Check the Sets & Legality tab.

Also, a lot of people seem to be missing the important word *another* on this card. That being said, it is still absolutely wonderful. It's my favorite draw-your-whole-deck engine with animar and soul of the harvest, along with a few morph creatures.
