Anyone else notice how rare First Strike is in this set? Probably because it's the best defense against creatures with Infect. Only 5 cards let you deal FS damage: a Double-strike sorcery(useless for blocking), an instant for White that lasts one turn, and two creatures that only have First Strike conditionally. Those conditions are: being pumped full of Red, or wearing some equipment. If you're using equipment anyway, may as well use this too.

Don't pass on this in a draft. If there's Infect on the table, yours or anyone else, you want to have First Strike.

This seems very fairly priced. It would benefit from some power boosting, but this is acceptable at common.

Gaveleer with bladed pinions is half an Akroma, angel of wrath.

Someone killed me at the scars prerelease with this equipped to a platinum emperion. I was playing green/red, with a molten-tail masticore. The damn thing wouldn't die. The worst part was that i'd got him down to about 8 poison counters, and could've won if he hadn't turned my blight mamba to slag.

A colorless double non green abilities for Putrefax... Sure, it costs 7 mana... but in green... mana flows...

Solid equipment. But i wouldn't take it before 6-7 pick. Especially for white.

And equipment is unplayable in standard, unless it's borken and aggressively priced. And this one isn't.

Basilisk Collar and Bladed Pionions?

Deathtouch + first strike = kill stuff repetitively
Plus a nice lifelink bonus.

And then flying to kill fliers

Not bad even on its own--flying is always handy

1cmc more than Neurok Hoversail for First Strike? Nice! Good against Infect stuff, not to mention the artwork is so BA just like Bladed Pinions. I'm dying to get these cards to play them together. :D

Scars is throwing tons of good equipment at us these days. First strike only appears on one other equipment card in standard currently, and that's Sword of Vengeance, which doesn't even offer evasion.
