Extremely beautiful art. I absolutely love the flavor of Bant (contains my three favorite colors anyway).

Nice equipment for slowing down your opponent's attack.

Underrated. It's inexpensive and it's in colors with creatures that work well with it, white especially.

This kind of equipment on the right creature can make people not want to attack you at all. Someone mentioned Palace Guard. Great call. Have them come over with provoke spells or abilities, like that of Bullwhip. Which is another underrated (on Gatherer, anyway) artifact.

@Zulp: Your pun earns my mixed admiration and a sudden urge to bash you in the head with a shield.

That being said, I think this is probably my favorite of the dual color equip cycle due to it's flavor. None of the others seem to relate much to their shards, at least not as much as this. Why would a behemoth weild a sledge? Why would a dragon weild a sword? Why would a...mecha-sphynx wear a mask?
We know why a knight in this world would wear a shield. Everything has gone to hell, and he needs someone he can trust watching his back.

Gideon Jura and Palace Guard approve!

Gideon makes them attack with everything, Palace Guard blocks everything.

Slap on an Indestructibility and some sort of flight, and you are good to go!

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
