I love using this card with Moonglove Changeling. Turns into 2B: Destroy target creature. Such a fun combo.

Unfortunately this one is the worst one from the tribal equipment cycle, yet it can still find use.
It's a pity the activation cost wasn't reduced to 1, then it would be pretty crazy.

Well, but it still provides Goblin Sharpshooter's untap trigger.
So all we have to do is finding a Shaman creature that can shoot without using mana.
Lightning Crafter is the excellent choice for this. With him it's similar to having three Sharpshooters outside!
Like this your opponent will only have his fatties left, and given that you can afford other losses on your side you can even char these.

Valleymaker can do the same amount of damage as the Crafter, but costs two more and a mountain each time, so it's by far not that useful with this guy.

Vulshok Sorcerer and Vithian Stinger can also do this job.
Use Frostwielder if you don't want them to hit the graveyard.

@Mode: On Frostwielder, this does absolutely nothing. Since it doesn't hit the graveyard, it doesn't untap it. Other than that, though, good stuff.

I think it makes a nice combo with Wojek Embermage, although you do actually have to pay the equip cost (and it relies on your opponent using a color you're not). Still, though...

Takes care of greens missing creature destruction no? anything with death touch becomes (2) destroy target creature: Wren's Run Packmaster, Wren's Run Vanquisher, Elvish Archdruid or Elvish Guidance

Anybody else notice that this thing matches the staff from Raiders of the Lost Ark? The sunbeam is passing through the crystal and everything, lol.

Obviously a cool artifact, with some fun combo potential.
