Liquidbeaver on Argent Moon: Liquimetal Control

Another bonus for Apostle's Blessing: I could make Awoken Horror or Crackling Drake unblockable for a turn!

Definitely gonna see about getting it in the mainboard and see how that plays out.

Gut Shot got me thinking about the other phyrexian cards, and I thought a 1x of Noxious Revival could work out pretty well, but then I found: Apostle's Blessing

Paying 1 colorless and 2 life (or no life if I have Manamorphose) to protect Thing or Drake (or even a good Isochron setup) is well worth it. I don't lose more than 3-4 life to shocks and fetches in the average game, so losing 2 more isn't a big deal, especially with so many of my recent games coming down to one turn.

I think this is a great way to round out the sideboard (or even mainboard in place of Echoing Truth?), and compliments the Spellskites that are already there for a similar purpose. It also helps a lot with Wurmcoil Engine, Engineered Explosives, Oblivion Stone. I could even use Liquimetal Coating to protect Blood Moon from removal, or a land from Ponza. It can even go on the Isochron!

Let me know what you think!

Apostle's Blessing and Distortion Strike would really benifit this deck against anything really.

Become Immense becomes pretty expensive when you don't have fetchlands to fuel it. In this build I would cut them and go +1 Blossoming Defense, +1 Groundswell and maybe +1 Apostle's Blessing

i was curious, so i opened your deck up and playtested it 5 rounds against my favorite modern competitive deck, which i physically own: Brother, That Looks... Infected.

the results were... definitive. your deck CANNOT beat a dedicated infect deck in an experienced players hand. even with turn 1 thoughtsieze, turn 2 collective brutality with 1 escalate, turn 3 liliana and turn 4 flashback souls, Inkmoth Nexus plus either Distortion Strike or Apostle's Blessing and any pump spell spelled the end. i tried my best, but your deck just wasn't fast enough for the match up and had near 0 ways of dealing with inkmoth nexus on your own turn, which is the best time to kill infect creatures, since you have to use pump/protection spells to save them without being able to attack with the bonus active.

granted, i couldn't access sideboard, but honestly i can't see anything that would have made much of a difference. maybe take a look at that matchup, since Infect seems to be on the rise against. Best of luck!

+1 Looking good! This can be a very powerful deck in pauper, but I think you will need some draw(cantrips) and some protection. Since your avg CMC is so low (1.29) you will top-decking to soon. I would recommend adding Defiant Strike or Guided Strike. Guided strike is an excellent defensive trick and can act as "removal". For protection Apostle's Blessing is awesome esp against artifact decks and Emerge Unscathed is a double trigger, huge value in a deck like this. Also might want to consider adding 1 or 2 each of Secluded Steppe and Forgotten Cave.

Bontu's Monument is a pretty bad card and should be replaced with Hope of Ghirapur as it prevents the one blue player with open mana to stop you, Sigarda, Host of Herons does nothing to further your gameplan and is hard to cast. If your meta is full of pox decks it may be ok. I would probably replace it with Rishkar, Peema Renegade. Null Rod seems pretty bad as it hinders your combos, but maybe it is worth it against the scepter decks as you don't have countermagic .Maybe play Stony Silence instead since it is easier to destroy artifacts. I have found Apostle's Blessing pretty solid. This is a variant I brewed up but haven't tested yet: Paradox Sisay

IndefiniteWin13: I like Shelter too. Good suggestion.

I think the sacrifice of swapping a "one-drop" (Apostle's Blessing) for a two-drop (Shelter) might be worth it. Because card draw.
