@majinara :: With the number of cards that can cheat this into play and equip it for free, it's very playable in constructed.

I think this is a pretty good card even if it's not getting cheated into play. Not meant to be traditional support like many equipment. I think this is supposed to be a "closer" in equipment form. Previous equipment of this caliber were unable to provide as much threat by themselves.
Wouldn't be too hard to use with green either. You can even put it on something small like a plant token from Khalni Garden and it would still wreak havoc on your opponent.
Shouldn't be used as a "main artillery" like Armadillo Cloak, Rancor, Sword of Fire and Ice etc... But if it gets to the point where this guy hits play, I'm sure it's gonna make your opponent squirm.
I'm not complaining. It's a very fun card. Not overly expensive for what you're getting either, if they cant deal with this your going to be hosing their most important permanent every turn.
Definitely easier to use in formats with 40 life (2HG, EDH).

Puresteel Paladin & Brass Squire. 6 Equip is NOT that hard these days. 5/5

I am sideboarding this card for an Infect deck. Would be nice to have some of my Plague Myrs out for ease to cast this card. On a Viral Drake or Priests of Norn would be very defensive. Perhaps attach it to a Blighted Agent if BA was not already burned or destroyed or exiled or countered early in the match.

Costed just right for an equipment finisher - if this thing comes online it's so hard to beat.

Silver Armor
expensive, yeah, but once you get it going its quite powerful
better cheating it in, but could also be played in a deck with mana spam

Wait, Quest for the Holy Relic is good now?

...This is some cruel joke, right?

It's expensive because if it was cheaper it would be massively overpowered. The real reason to get it is the "destroy target permanent" effect when you attack. Read it. Do you see it say "nonland" anywhere? No? So you can destroy their land if none of their other things are a threat? Yes sir, yes sir you can. How about nasty enchantments that shut down a card, like Arrest or Pacifism? Yup, those too. The +6/6 can be made up elsewhere. Nobody plays this primarily because it's a +6/6. If they took that part out, or even halved it to +3/3, it would be great. It's reusable permanent destruction. It becomes the sole target of your opponent, a card they have to take care of or else they need to scoop.

It's easy to cheat in, and with a Puresteel Paladin potentially free to equip. The hard casting and equipping cost is to prevent it from becoming an easily splashable win card in every deck.
