@U-caster: Sorry, but you can't. It's not green, so equipping it would be an ability from a nongreen source, and equipping IS targeted.

This card is great for not only protecting your stronger creatures, but also for amplifying their threat. It's a little costly, but definitely worth it.

Great card. Even better on Phage the Untouchable or Platinum Angel.

justicarphaeton if you think they are about the same go for Whispersilk Cloak because it coasts 10 cents and lightning Greaves coasts 4 dolors.

@Terris00 - "If I equip Whispersilk Cloak to a creature with an Aura, then does the Aura fizzle?"

Nope! The Aura only targets the creature as it is entering the battlefield. Once it resolves, it attaches to the creature-- there is no more targeting going on.

Now, if you tried to cast an Aura enchanting a creature already equipped with Whispersilk Cloak, then that would fizzle. But if you've got a creature already enchanted with Spider Umbra and you equip it with Whispersilk Cloak, nothing funny happens-- the creature is both equipped and enchanted.

I would prefer if it was hexproof, not shroud, so that I could super-duper enchant a guy in my Zur the Enchanter EDH, but you can just do the enchanting beforehand.
And hexproof instead of shroud would make this ridiculous.

@RuleofZod
Since the equipment has already been attached, the action of equipping it has already happened, so the target is not being negated.

I'm stating the obvious, but this is ideal for creatures with a 'when this creature deals combat damage to a player, do-something-cool' effects.

Some cards that come to mind include
trygon predator
wanderwine prophets
blinding angel
sphinx ambassador
hypnotic specter (and other specters)
ashling the extinguisher
spawnwrithe
cold-eyed selkie (and other draw-when-deal-damage guys)
augury adept (one of my personal faves)
dimir cutpurse
the nephilims
rith, the awakener; vorash, the hunter; teneb the harvester, et al
skullbriar, the walking grave

Phyrexian Juggernaut +Whispersilk Cloak. This simple, no-frills combo almost always works. Keep in mind this requires nothing other than a solid land base, so it'll work anywhere

@HaseoYamazaki - that's true, but there are plenty of ways to get around the cloak from blocking your own abilities. In the end, all you have to do is move the cloak, do your targeting, and move it back. Cards like Puresteel Paladin (with metalcraft) or even Brass Squire help a lot with this.
Brass Squire also can protect from instants interrupting your switching, since he can put the cloak back at instant speed.

They didn't repeat this in M12 because they were afraid and embarrassed that people would say 'oh, they're just ripping off of the Deathly Hallows'. That's how awesome this Cloak is. It could be Death's very own. Obviously The Stick is the The Deathstick, The Elder Wand: Isochron Scepter (use FTV one).

I don't remember if Magic has anything like the Resurrection Stone, but I would expect there will be something from Innistrad Block that will fit quite nicely. =D

This. Thing. Is. NUTS!!! I got one in the Phyrexia vs. the Coalition, and it ROCKS! I have a playset in my Eldrazi Green deck, and hitting every turn with an ever-growing Omnath, Locus of Mana is very quick...in fact, half the time, I don't even get out any eldrazi, because my opponent is dead from my Timbermaw Larva!

5/5

if you put this on a creature that is already targeted by equipment or enchantments, does said creature loose the existing equipment or enchantments due to the cloaks shroud, or is the creature no longer being targeted by the equipment or enchantment once they are attached?????
