This card is a bear to fight against.
It is very hard to block effectively, and can turn any medium to high power creature into a monster.
It is very hard to attack effectively into it.
The flexibility and free activation is what gives it the huge leg up over modern equipment.

How many times have I been forced to let creatures through, only to have my opponent leave it untapped for defense...

...Pre-Equipment creature buffing artifact that's both competent, but outright good without being woefully broken?

Pinch me. I must be dreaming.

One of my friends found a Japanese copy of this in a dollar rare box, and he's used it in most of the EDH decks he's built since finding it. Most people don't believe him when he tells them what it does.

I recently bought a copy myself, and I'm trying to figure out a good deck to put it in. It seems like an awesome card to use in EDH. I mean, it can be used for defense, it can be used for offense, it can be used at instant speed, and the extra +1/+1 can make a difference in combat. I really don't see why this doesn't see more play in EDH.

Makes most of current magic's equipment look like crap.

It's hard to believe this hasn't been reprinted yet.

Yikes. Thats pretty decent. Is this in the right set?

If it gave haste instead of trample, flying, or first strike it would be an EDH staple.

Hmm...with Voltaic Key out, this could almost be a poor man's Eldrazi Monument.
