Liquimetal Coating Discussion
11 hours ago
2 weeks ago
Depends on whether I play against one or multiple opponents. In 1 vs 1 my winratio is about 50%. It does well against creature oriented decks; less so against decks that aren't (though artifact-oriented decks also have real trouble against this).
Against multiple opponents my winratio actually increases to about 2/3. Mostly because this deck isn't that fast so in the beginning phases of games, the deck often gets underestimated (especially by people who haven't played against it before). When people see Niv, they often think this deck's secondary strategy is actually its primary one.
As for the cards that usually cause victory, it's often a combo of many of the deck's cards but some special mention should go out to Roil Elemental as well as the Liquimetal Coating + Memnarch/Hellkite Tyrant combo.
Hope this helps.

I apologize if I missed an explanation for this or not, but have you considered running things that can make non-artifacts into artifacts to protect them? Things like Mycosynth Lattice, Liquimetal Coating, and Silverskin Armor can be used to save Glissa from The Abyss and effects like it...I don't know if they would hold their weight in this deck or not, but Liquimetal Coating has saved a few vital creatures for me at critical points in past matches.

I'm not sure what price-point you're looking for, but here are a few budget options:
Good luck (and skill) with your brew!

Only way it works without Liquimetal Coating is against something purely artifact based, like Affinity

I think I know the answer but want to be sure. So I have 3 questions.
Thanks for helping!

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.

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'.
