It is useful with enchantments like Castle, though vigilance could technically be seen as better. Enchanting it to give vigilance and a tap ability would be interesting as well.

Glad they made it a Kor, although the mechanic is interesting it doesn't seem all that useful.

I was just browsing TV Tropes when i realized i never actually read this card's flavor text, since it was used as the introductionary quote for the Weapon of Choice trope "Simple Staff".
Now we need a Simple Staff equipment that's as awesome as the trope suggests it ought to be! :D
Since this card is a kor and these folks just coincidentally happen to be great martial artists (or at least the newer ones are particularly good with equipment), i could imagine this equipment providing a bonus if it's equipped to a kor.
(For example this card's trigger, or a further bonus like a +1/+1 boost, first strike or similar stuff.)

Well, about the trigger: in general it's mostly a bad version of Vigilance, but i could imagine some borderline uses where it's preferable (e.g. through cards triggering on permanents tapping/untapping).

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
