Razor Boomerang at least made you think of combos or how you could abuse it. This just has zero chance of being played in anything but a joke deck.

I think this is the worst card in standard right now. At best it's {3} for an equipment that says "equipped creature gets +2/+2" Equip {2}. Vanilla equipment is just sad. Why no artifact creatures in this set either?

When you make a conditional card like this, the right way to make it is to make it weaker than other cards by default, but stronger than other cards when the condition is met. Here, though, even if it is on a human, it's still not worth the price.

Superllama12 is right, though, that it's better than 0.5/5 -- A card has to go the extra mile of suck to get that rating from me, like Scorching Spear. This is a solid 1/5.

There was a thing called "Vulshock Morningstar".

However, the plane of Innistrad didn't have very good blacksmiths.

Mind you, this is just a Mattock: an axe kind of thing. It wasn't made for battle. The Morningstar is... well, a Morningstar.

Oh come on, it's not that bad! Yeah, it's not great either, but definitely better than the current 0.5/5

Booster fodder. Not much more than that. At least it's not as bad as Razor Boomerang.

I think it's telling that even in the most ideal situation, this is still a worse piece of equipment than if you had Bludgeon Brawl and any 2-cmc artifact (even something like Angel's Feather). I suspect this was nerfed during development - humans were too dominant, maybe?

Terrible since even if it gave +2/+2 to anything, it still wouldn't measure up that well.

All i know is i made a human deck, and this didn't make the cut... humans make crap weapons so far. I'd rather throw the stump. Most farmers i know carry shotguns anyway.

Shotgun equipment would rock, tap to deal 3 damage to nearby enemy, doesn't untap next untap step.(need to reload). Heavy Arbalest? oh snap.

Rant aside, its not as good as Morningstar, and in most situations, including a human deck, i know which one I'd pick. But in this format, for humans, its really not that much worse... for humans... 2/5.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
