Using something like Liquimetal Coating opens up a lot of possibilities for destroying lands in mono green (especially against other mono color decks... Splinter anyone?).

I'm sad you don't have access to green... Splinter with Liquimetal Coating is nuts (picture targetting a basic land in a mono color deck).

The flavor text on cards like Sanctum Gargoyle Puppet Conjurer Thopter Foundry implies Etherium is rare and valuable. The flavor text of Identity Crisis implies a religious reverence for Etherium, that they wouldn't waste it infusing nonbelievers. Infusing opponents permanents with Etherium seems like a thing they wouldn't do.

Mechanically, turning permanents into artifacts is more of a Mirrodin thing, anyway. Liquimetal Coating Mycosynth Lattice Argent Mutation Memnarch Myr Landshaper Silverskin Armor Neurok Transmuter

Since Esper cards refer to recycling and salvaging their Etherium, perhaps an artifact-specific variation of Emerge , or Etherium Cell as a theme (like how Grixis colors had Treasure in Ixalan).

With a Liquimetal Coating you can turn every permanent on the battlefield into a 3/3 elk, including Oko himself.

I don't play favorites with my combos in this deck because that would lead to a much higher degree of repetition, and that would make games less fun for everyone involved.

That said, the basic thing to look for is the ability to untap things. If you have repeatable untap, you've probably got a win.


  • Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker made into an artifact via Mycosynth Lattice or Liquimetal Coating , any sac outlet, and Dross Scorpion . This is basically Kiki/Conscripts. You use Kiki to copy the Scorpion, then sac the copy for two untap triggers. Aim both untaps at Kiki, activating him in between to get two more Scorpions. Each time you sacrifice a Scorpion, if you had 'X' scorpions, you end up with (2x-1). Infinite Scorpions to attack with.
  • Dross Scorpion enchanted with Splinter Twin does the same thing as above
  • Any sac outlet plus Dross Scorpion in play. Wurmcoil Engine enchanted with Splinter Twin. Tap Engine to make a copy, then sac the copy and the resultant tokens to get three untap triggers that you point all of at the Engine. Infinite Wurmcoil Engines. (never done this one - it just occurred to me)
  • Myr Battlesphere enchanted with Splinter Twin. Untap provided by either one of the following: Dross Scorpion and a sac outlet **OR** Clock of Omens

Dischord, oddly enough Oblivion Stone rarely if ever gets activated in many of my matches. I have also watched several other players cast it but never actually activate it. I am aware of its ability to effectively act as a board wipe, but often times it's a dead drop. Instead I may remove 2 of the Memnarch 's in favor of All Is Dust . This is NOT a traditional Tron deck as it seeks to Win by locking the opponent and then stealing their permanents for FUN. The first ability of Memnarch will never need to be activated,as only the second matters because of Karn, the Great Creator , Liquimetal Coating , (in a pinch for Mana) or Mycosynth Lattice . Having redundant Win conditions is always neat when playing for fun.
