I have this picture in my head of manic vandal, oxidda scrapmelter, and hoard-smelter dragon all standing around what looks like an M&M dispenser.

Melts in your mouth, not in your hand... claw... talon...

And suddenly, with one mistake from design, Red had enchantment removal, Greed and White had land destruction, Blue laughed maniacally, and Blackā€¦ Black just sat there and twiddled its thumbs I guess.

And the Planeswalkers trembled.

Today's question:

How in the name of Urza does it turn enchantments into metal?

Splinter and Echoing Ruin become pretty awesome basic land hosers with this tool.

Wow, no one has mentioned Gorilla Shaman? It kills lands for 1!

Entropic_Acolyte. You can turn Planewalkers into artifacts using the Liquimetal coating, and then using a Shatter or even a Manic vandal. You can real annoy people with this card, i have a mono red deck, but B/R could work.


Thrown in a few Mimic Vat's and you are well on you way. When one of the Manic Vandals or Oxidda Scrapmelters dies, just Vat is and really annoy people. LMAO

maybe my favorite card in the set. must have been a mistake to say permanent and not creature. lol

@ Mode: Unfortunately, Echoing Ruin doesn't work as a basic land hoser with Liquimetal Coating. Since Ruin says "Destroy target artifact and all other artifacts with the same name as target artifact." Unless you find a way to turn all of the basic lands you're trying to destroy into artifacts, Ruin will blow up one then scan the board for other artifacts named "Swamp" or whatever, find none, and resolve.

However, putting Revoke Existence or even just a Shatter on Isochron Scepter with a coating or two on the field (or imprinted on Prototype Portal) gives you a nightmarish version of Vindicate every turn until they deal with the scepter. Which will be difficult when you're exiling a land every turn.

In the sense that "broken" is a card that requires you to play it, or else you're hopelessly outmatched by everyone else who's playing it, the Coating/Shat... (see all)

If building a deck around this card, the best search card seems to be ancient stirrings as, best case scenario it gets you this for 1 mana, worst case, it gets you 5 cards closer and puts a land in your hand for 1 mana.
it is also green, which leads you to a bunch of good artifact removal, and nature's spiral to protect your liquimetal coatings and to get back creatures that destroy artifacts.

deck plan,
4 liquimetal coatins
4 ancient stirrings
an amount of veridian revels
2 natures spiral
24 lands of your choice

26 of your favorite cards that destroy artifacts like
two for ones manic vandal, oxidda scrapmelter, relic crush, into the core, viridian corrupter
stepping out of standard ancient grudge, shattering spree

the important part to me is the ancient stirrings as tutors and natu... (see all)

@Speednat Technically Planeswalkers still count as permanents. It's just that they are valid targets for attacking with your creatures (like how you say you're attacking Player C in a multiplayer game, the planeswalker is a valid target), and "306.7. If noncombat damage would be dealt to a player by a source controlled by an opponent, that opponent may have that source deal that damage to a planeswalker the first player controls instead."

And since they are still considered a Permanent, Naturalize/Shatter will still work on them with this.

Or you could have more fun... :)
This + "target artifact becomes an artifact creature" effect at instant speed (take your pick, magic has a bunch, but I like Karn, Silver Golem for this) + Mimic Vat + Planeswalker of your Choice = Planeswalker Tokens! (Mind you they die after just one turn, but quite a few planeswalkers can still fire off their second abilities (The... (see all)

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
