They need to reprint it in the core set, but without any reminder text for "Equip."

Because Machete don't text.

Falls neatly between Leonin Scimitar and Vulshok Morningstar.

This is probably my favorite card ever printed. If you put it on a thing, it's generally pretty good. It's not warping, it doesn't make any strategy bad, it's powerful, but, not opressive. This card is good in so many ways I cannot describe. You get so much value out of it. Put it on any double striker ever and it becomes an unstoppable badass, put it on an infect creature and you put your opponent on a fast clock, put it on a 1/1 flier and it becomes a flipped delver of secrets, put it on like a 6/6 trampler to sneak in the last points of damage or to make it go over the top of everything, even just putting it on a vanilla 1/1 ground pounding token to trade up is straight value. Is there anything this card doesn't do? You can play a 1 drop 2 drop this equip or you can play 1 drop 1 drop this go equip, it fits in nearly every creature deck. I really have almost no excuse for playing it though, which is a bit saddening. Come on wizards, this would be a sweet ... (see all)

I like how an already armed soldier holding this suddenly gains the capacity to kill an elephant in one blow.

eh Trusty Machete is pretty cool guy, he equips the creatures and doesn't afraid of anything

I have this image of a trinket mage wandering through wild Kazandu. One hand holds his stolen sensei's divining top, the other his trusty machete. What brings you so far from home, little mage?

3 to play/equip seems less than ideal, but it's decent enough. For most purposes I prefer Bonesplitter. By the way, it's the equipment version of UNholy Strength, not Holy Strength. ;)

I am currently a beginner bladesmith (knife maker) and plan to eventually make something similar to this, until then, I'm equipping it to 1/1 snakes for amusement.
