Destroy Artifact

Hello,



is it possible to destroy artifact creature (eg Iron Myr) with Vandalblast or does it specifically has to say "destroy target artifact creature"?



Thanks!

An artifact creature is both an artifact and a creature, so you can destroy it with Vandalblast.

Yes, that works. Iron Myr is an artifact. It happens to also be a creature, but vandal blast doesn't care about that.
A card like Crush couldn't destroy an artifact creature.  That's why Crush costs less than Shatter - because it's more restricted.  Shatter can destroy artifacts whether they're creatures or not.
 
Just for clarity's sake: You can also kill it with something like murder, maelstrom pulse, or abrupt decay.

Shattering Spree. :D

But yes, an artifact creature is both types of permanent, and it is a permanent too.
Lucent Liminid can be naturalized because it is an enchantment.

And you can't target Dryad Arbor with either Maelstrom Pulse or Abrupt Decay because it is a land.
