Epic flail!

Rafiq, it's dangerous to go alone. Take this.

A few people seem confused about why the equipped creature receives double damage. It's one of the Inquisitor's weapons and it requires their skills to use it properly (first strike, protection from the enemies you're fighting). Greatly flavorful.

If any of us tried using a flail, we'd probably end up breaking our own arms in the process.

lethalex, it seems that the flail only works with combat damage. Sorry mate, i'm pretty sure fighting is noncombat damage. That being said, it does work well with the obliterator

I was down on the ropes against my opponent's big zombies, then I played an Angelic Overseer, with a Human in play. Next turn, I draw and play Inquisitor's Flair, equip it, and swing for 10. I do so again next turn. He didn't expect it.

This + Blighted Agent + Titanic Growth = cheap unblockable instakill.

This plus Mirran Crusader = extremely effective is extremely understated. It makes normal creatures have the equivalent of double strike (almost, the first strike is missing), but in the hands of double-strikers, it essentially makes them Quadruple strikers. Better yet, equip this to Phyrexian Crusader. You've almost won in a single attack right there.

The level of fun to be had with either Phyrexian Obliterator or Mirran Crusader and other strong cards is not to be underestimated. Even creatures without an ability like First Strike (such as Accorder Paladin) suddenly are hitting for six when they would have died from any amount of damage anyway allowing them to trade with things much larger or just taking great wallops out of your opponent's life total.

@RJDroid: of course it was unexpected. NO ONE ever expects the spanish inquisition. Their chief weapons are surprise, first strike, and flails.
Well, sorry, but someone had to say it.

This is one of the coolest pieces of equipment ever, IMO. It's awesome to see how no one cares about its drawback - first strike (double strike being too evil/fun to even mention), indestructibility (yeah, I know that's not a keyword), or just you not caring about your creature's survival. Sure to be welcome in a lot of decks (at least in casual).
