This is unquestionably my favorite standard-legal card to date. Powerful enough to build a deck around, yet specific enough it's basically necessary. Works well with instants, sorceries, and let's not forget auras (regardless of how much play they may or may not see), so there's lots of room for creativity and in any color/color combination!

Coolest, although not most efficient, thing I've done: Equipped 3x Livewire Lash to an Inkmoth Nexus, and then targeted it for both parts of Wing Puncture. "What? 12 Poison?!?" "Yeah, THAT's how you get through a Tumble Magnet defense!"

Such shenanigans with infecters and deathtouchers -- you can use your combat tricks to clear out blockers and punch through for the win unimpeded OR deal even more damage to your opponent. Great w/ lifelink too!

This is really great with Theros. Hell yeah I want some Heroic activations with this guy around.

I think Gigadrowse may have found a new friend...

This, a creature with infect and Distortion Strike is pretty much a game winner, even if the creature is a 1/1.

Whip Silk
Crown of Flames
Flickering Ward
Shimmering Wings
All of these will do the same thing, essentially... 1 mana, 2 damage, 1 mana, bounce aura, repeat.
All of em will also draw you cards from enchantress type creatures or Azorius Aethermage as well. You probably want a monocolored deck if you're going to do this.

@iSlapTrees: That idea actually wouldn't work, since Livewire Lash will only trigger if a spell targets the equipped creature, and Equip is an ability that targets, not a spell.

Let's give this little gem to our old friend Stigma Lasher. Now I call that a 3rd degree burn.

Combos well with Soul's Fire, especially with infect creatures. Even if you equip it to a 1/1, they deal 5 poison counters total.
