Due to the ruling, you can attach a Batterskull to a Neurok Commando.

This plus Elbrus, The Binding Blade; you sneak in a weenie attacker and pop Elbrus in with the Stonehewer right before damage is dealt. Poof, instant 13/13 demon.

Or you could use a Quietus Spike, strip away 1/2 their life.

Lastly, another great one is slip Sword of Kaldra onto a blocked (or blocking) creature, and send their creature tumbling into oblivion. You could even do this on purpose with a provoke creature.

5/5, so overpowered.

This card might as well say, "If your opponent does not have a removal spell, you win the game".
With some sword of x and y this card becomes the clear choice over baneslayer angel.

Very powerful in a deck with Sunforgers. As long as this thing is untapped, there is a Sunforger in your deck, and you have {W}{W}{R}{1} open you can use a Double Negative or similar on any threat your opponent plays, regardless of what you have in your hand.

An amazing card. You can use it during combat to equip him or another monster with an equipment before damage is declared. Say you swing with this guy: Your opponent can choose to chump block, in which case you tap him and grab a Loxodon Warhammer, block with something bigger, in which case you grab say Shield of Kaldra or Runechanted Pike, or they could let him through, in which case you can grab Worldslayer or Grafted Exoskeleton.

However, my favorite card to equip him with is Umbral Mantle. Assuming you have a lot of mana, you can equip multiple cards from your deck in combat. Equipping just the Mantle and Grafted Exoskeleton is 8 poison, possibly game if you can kick Mantle twice. If they block, equip with both the Shield of Kaldra and the Sword of Kaldra to exile the blocker. The possibilities are endless. 5... (see all)

Holy scheisse! And they banned Stoneforge Mystic? This guy is a beatstick on his own with vigilance and that tutor ability, PLUS he attaches it! for only 5CMC?

Outstanding in any deck with equipment, but usually such decks are white weenie decks with low CMC creatures and few lands, so you might get stuck not being able to play him.

I like him better than Stoneforge Mystic for two reasons.
1. It is more fun to play against, no one likes a 3rd turn Batterskull busting there face in
2. Its a freaking giant

The flavor of the card goes well with the ability. He'll outfit your army with anything they need, just ask nicely. A friend in need is a friend indeed... but a friend making equipment is a friend making a real dent. -Bad at this kind of stuff- You get the idea. 5 out of 5.

Living weapon is a triggered ability, so it will wait till the giant's ability resolves first, then living weapon will be put on the stack. the way living weapon is worded, no matter what creature stonehewer attached the equipment to, it will end up on the germ token.

On topic:
Stonehewer, you are my new love, once i get a copy of you, stone forge, and all the mirrodin swords in one edh deck together, my life will be complete.
I actually thought he just attached it to himself. then i read him. now i have been enlightened.
