Looks fine for me: more power, adds wither, 2 mana, the equip should be more cheap; beside that its not a bad card for been a "had to add this equipment that adds the new damage ability thing" common card.

you guys need to get out of the box

anything that does a blanket of damage is awesome with this, like earthshaker, it is 2 -1/-1 counters and he is a 5/5 if you tossed him in the air

other cards, anything with FS, oros, the avenger, tibor and lumia

Ok you have to wait a bit to get it into play but then those creatures with low power can actually have some effect vs bigger things. Also good for wearing down walls not to mention Double Strike effects !!!

It's like the name is Phyrexian slang for an ice pop. "Popsicle? Blightsickle!"

I prefer Gorgon Flail over this. 1.5/5

Crappy equipment.
You pay 4 mana, need a creature in play that you can equip and that can attack, and then just deal a lousy additional damage, and sometimes fling some -1/-1 counters around in case your opponent feels like blocking... man that's bad.

Just play some good equipment instead. Or a creature. Or anything good...

definitely not a bad card, but strictly worse than Gorgon Flail.
(don't need to explain why deathtouch > wither in all but the most convoluted of situations do i?)

Eh..., there should have been a second ability or more power to the equipped creature.

I would love to see this come into Innistrad. Although wither isn't exactly something that would be on that plane. Oh well..
