Liquimetal Coating Discussion

UniqueUserID on Pia's Revolution interactions with making ...

2 days ago

I think I know the answer but want to be sure. So I have 3 questions.

1) Can I use Liquimetal Coating to make a Scornful Egotist an artifact creature so Pia's Revolution could return it to my hand?

2) Could I use Liquimetal Coating to make a Purity an artifact creature so Pia's Revolution could return it to my hand? Since I control both effects can I choose the order to force Purity to my hand?

3) How does Pia's Revolution and Credit Voucher work? Does the Credit Voucher return to my hand AFTER I have fulfilled the effect? Or does it happen earlier so I can "cycle" it?

Thanks for helping!

Casper00901 on can i copy curses?

6 days ago

so what enpc and Neotrup are trying to say is to make it work i would have to turn Torment of Scarabs into a artifact with Liquimetal Coating then play Phyrexian Metamorph as a copy of it then enchant with Mechanized Production? at least i think this version would be legal. this way the deck only has to have blue and black.

KongMing on Oona Queen of the Fae 1

1 week ago

I like this deck a lot! I've been thinking about making an Oona deck for about three years now, and this looks like a good intersection of budget and quality.

I see you already have the Basalt Monolith and Rings of Brighthearth for an infinite mana combo. You could add Bloodchief Ascension for infinite life loss and mill when active and combined with Mindcrank.

Another idea would be Training Grounds. It gives you 2 extra cards of mill every time you use Oona.

You could think about adding The Scarab God , too. He combos well with Oona's mill, allowing you to recur and remove problematic creatures in your opponents' graves. His cost is also reduced by Training Grounds.

Liquimetal Coating allows creatures with activated abilities to be targeted by Grand Architect. Imagine using Oona to create Faeries, then tap those Faeries for more mana to activate her ability with, then tap those new Faeries to do the same, etc. You can do it as long as you have colored mana stored up and are generating enough Faeries to tap for colorless mana.

Bog Initiate completes the loop, allowing you to turn your infinite colorless mana into Black and effectively combo out and end the game with Oona.

Have you thought about adding Leyline of the Void? Exiling graveyards in Commander is always good, especially when it's only your opponents'.

Casper00901 on can i copy curses?

If I have a curse such as Torment of Scarabs + March of the Machines then use Liquimetal Coating to make my curse an artifact + creature, would I then be able to make copies with Progenitor Mimic?

Mxyzptlk on Memnarch Ultimate Defiance

Liquimetal Coating makes stealing with Memnarch cheaper for when you don't have Mycosynth Lattice out yet.

Muzzio, Visionary Architect could help you tutor artifacts, depending what you have on the board. Arcum Dagsson lets you find whatever you want.

As for other wincons:

March of the Machines + Cyclonic Rift or Cryptic Command's mode 3 could be fun.

I like playing Steel Overseer, and it works well with Etched Champion.

I know you already have all the pieces in there, but Psychosis Crawler + Enter the Infinite would win, especially if you High Tided.

Triton on Breya Budget

1 week ago

I'd recommend working on the land base, as it's an extreme game-changer when all your lands EtB untapped. I recently got all the shock lands for my Breya deck, and it runs so much smoother. I understand completely if you can't afford shocks (I'll leave out fetches haha), so I'd recommend using pain lands and check lands. Glacial Fortress, Drowned Catacomb, Dragonskull Summit, Shivan Reef, Caves of Koilos, and Battlefield Forge are all good lands under $2-3.

I'd also suggest Dispatch in the removal suite, since it's pretty easy to achieve metalcraft in the deck.

Reckless Fireweaver, Impact Tremors, and Disciple of the Vault all create infinite life loss/damage with Sharuum + Sculpting Steel/Phyrexian Metamorph. Bitter Ordeal can exile all opponents' libraries, if you can afford it.

Saheeli Rai goes infinite with Liquimetal Coating and Felidar Guardian.

Feel free to check out my deck for ideas/inspiration, it's more combo/control-focused, but I'm sure there are some staples that you may find use of in there:

The BREEya to My SCREEya

Commander / EDH Triton


Hope this helps!

TheVectornaut on Puppet Show

2 weeks ago

How does this deck play out? I see the Stuffy Doll + Pariah combo and the Liquimetal Coating + Hellkite Tyrant interaction. Mindslaver and Elspeth, Knight-Errant are strong enough on their own. However, why Fevered Visions and the other artifacts? The only interaction I see with Visions is forcing the opponent to hold cards with Mindslaver and then banking on extra damage from Dictates. That sounds farfetched to me and I imagine most people will be happy to dump their hands otherwise. Unwinding Clock's power also seems to be wasted when the best it can do is grant some extra Stuffy Doll damage. It seems to me like a lot of hoops to do less than a traditional package of Boros Reckoner, Spitemare, Volcano Hellion and Blasphemous Act would. For the more artifact heavy gameplan, March of the Machines and Mycosynth Lattice might be useful.

Akkrand on blue and green proliferate

Liquimetal Coating could be used to turn your planeswalkers into artifacts, then you could use Vorel of the Hull Clade to double the number of loyalty counters on that planeswalker.
Since you've got a few of them (planeswalkers) I thought it might a useful.

It can also be used in a pinch to turn your Krosan Grip or Naturalize into a Murder by turning an opponent's creature into an artifact.
