Neurok Transmuter with mycosynth lattice out, play this guy transmute all your creatures into blue non artifacts and it changes to remove everything you dont control from the game, thats about the only application i ever found for this guy in an artifact heavy deck where you dont need artifacts,

was gonna biuld a deck around mycosynth lattice, furnace dragon, secound sunrise, tap all lands for mana play furnace dragon, while furnace dragon is on the stack sack everything but mycosynth lattice everyone exiles all permanents they control, play secound sunrise, you get everything back...

Seriously, how is this useful? Mirror match?

I love townsend's story lol
5/5 flyer for three that can blow things up when he comes into play is pretty neat. Works best with artifacts that either already gave you their bonuses or can give you them when you play this guy but after you've gotten affinity accomplished. These include baubles, pentad prism, (to a lesser degree) mycosynth wellspring and ichor wellspring.

Affinity is not something red is very versed with - in fact it's the only nonblue, nonartifact affinity card!
But that cip/etb effect is a huger drawback than this card would have needed, it makes you don't want to play that card.
In Mirrodin block it will of course also hose a lot from your opponent's side, but when you're going to play him cheap (for three, four or five mana) you're going to exile a lot from your own stuff - which isn't worth the trade. Without any artifacts on the other hand - as with all affinity cards - it's far too expensive.
Since the trigger also only works by hardcasting it and therefore won't help you when reanimating the dragon i see only very narrow use for this card. I think it's currently overrated.

By the way, when comparing this artwork to that one from Dragon Mage you really notice the similarity, both are drawn by Matthew D. Wilson.

The easiest way around the whole mess of crap is to play it using a card like Dragonstorm or the old Skyship Weatherlight artifact. This is the only way i would even consider using it or elvish piper but not sure if the effect still hits with that

interesting one-of in a deck containing Zirilan of the Claw to cheat him into play for a turn.

@Eved: I don't see why that's a huge deal. It's essentially like an Obliterate in that case, but for more mana. The dragon will exile everything, including itself. Everyone's on equal footing, board-wise. In that scenario, the player with the largest hand/highest life probably has the upper hand, and shouldn't have quit.

I mean, to be fair, I might have quit too, because it doesn't sound like a very exciting game after that.

Ferlord, he said "while furnace dragon is on the stack sack everything but mycosynth lattice". So his artifacts are in the graveyard while the dragon goes off, and he second sunrises them back.

An interesting card. Choices, choices... The best situation to use it is when your opponent(s) have enough artifacts to make up for your own losses.

this is a funny card, although I imagine the effect would backfire in most games.

Maybe you just use it along side a bunch of crappy artifacts, like spellbombs (which aren't crappy, per say, but you can live without sacking them)

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
