Magnetohydrodynamics - Plasma or Liquid more conductive?

  1. Jul 22, 2012 #1
    Sorry, I am not a physics major - I apologize in advance if this question is ignorant or if this was asked already.

    What would be the most effective as a Magnetohydrodynamics weapon?

    Assuming normal ionized air, would a liquid (liquid silver and salt water) or some type of plasma (anything?) be better for distance traveled and / or electrical conductivity?

    Or is something else better than either of these?

    I was playing a science fiction video game where a MHD weapon was used and there was a debate among my group of friends as to what would be best.

    I just wanted to know what really would be the best for this. Thank You!!!
