I built a deck revolving around Liquimetal Coating, and using Voltaic Key to untap it, and every 1 or 2 cmc spell like Smelt, Artifact Mutation, or Ancient Grudge. It's a very fun deck to pilot and makes people very upset. Doesn't do as well in multiplayer games, but it's fun (for me) to Splinter out all of someone's basic lands. This type of deck might be more for you than just Wasteland + Crucible of Worlds, as that won't really get you going on to victory.

Steelspike that's always a great trick. I've already thought about building something with Liquimetal Coating/Myr Landshaper and Splinter to seriously irritate monocoloured players :)

Cicjose why not Mycosynth Lattice for a big bang? unfortunately the bane won't survive that

If you want to piss off mono coloured decks you can use Splinter with liquimetal coating and target a basic land...

I considered Splinter for a minute while I was originally building this deck...but decided against it. This deck already makes people mad...if I pulled all of someones basic lands from their deck I might get punched, lol

More of a casual card but Splinter is a deadly card. It can get rid of basic lands. Consider Myr Landshaper for additional artifact conversion effects.

you do realize that if you turn a land into an artifact and use Splinter you lock someone's deck, right? your description doesn't seem that way :3.

Thanks a ton for your tips Xica! Very appreciated!

For the idea of behind this deck... Its a tall order i know... but im aiming to keep this deck under $100. It doesn't have to be SUPER COMPETITIVE but yeah i do want it to be able to pull off some wins yknow?

Yeah I definitely do want my opponent to discard and even though the price for Liliana of the Veil went down just one copy is like $20 more than the whole deck. I do have full playsets of Distress and Wrench Mind but im not exactly certain as to what slots I would replace with... like even if i invested in Thoughtseize and picked up Raven's Crime Im just not sure where I would put it/what i'd replace. Currently im thinking that the discard effects happen late game/via cleanup step for the opponent exceeding the maximum handsize and then Necrogen Mists for assistance. Currently as it stands your right i have no way to Blow up all the lands so perhaps i need to integrate more discard enablers.

As for Ensnaring Bridge. The idea seems good. its just too pricey for what im going for... 2 copies of it alone cost more that the entire deck by 20 bucks. Im HOPEING that I finally found a home for Waste Not and some vanilla 2/2 zombie tokens can help chump block with the aid of some spot removal. for a budget Damnation effect i do have a playset of Killing Wave and 2x Necroplasm but just not sure about them...

I love your explanation of Blood Moon... that seems like a very smart idea. But again just not budget friendly and im aiming for mono black... otherwise id try to exploit Liquimetal Coating and green Naturalize/Splinter effects... however; now that you point out the synergy between Ghost Quarter and Life from the Loam thats a lot more tempting now... curse this thin wallet of mine!

As far as scry/tutor is concerned... idk... i have 2x Liliana Vess she does both discard and tutor... any thoughts?
