laziness? this thing is good by its own standards, not because people other than you cant apparently see outside the box. maybe you should go to a tournament and see how many different decks there are. And the fact that this is pure colorless means that anyone can use it.

This is a cruel card. There are some cards that make people groan and moan whenever it hits the battlefield, and there's even a few who deserve such a reputation.

If you go to a casual game with a jitte, you probably should expect to lose a few friends. It's not an instant win card, but it's so close to being one, and so powerful compared to the majority of the cards in the game, that with this card you basically rob and steal games, rather than win them.

It's fine to own and to use in tournaments, but keep it away from the kitchen table.

One of the rare gems in the Kamigawa block... however, its -1 ability is simply absurd. I've lost many a game to this thing that i would have easily won had my opponent not drawn it. it's too much of an auto-win to be not restricted. I hate it.

This card gave colors traditionally poor in removal, like green, a repeatable source of creature destruction. That is the chief problem with it. The fact that it has other abilities, and is cheaper to both cast and equip than Loxodon Warhammer, just throws it over the top. And let's not even talk about its inclusion in the "Rats' Nest" BoK theme deck...

Calling this thing "good" is severely understated. Had it not been Legendary, it would have all the right to be banned. Putting this on any creature instantly transforms it from an Eager Cadet to a... actually, I can't think of another creature with abilities nearly as versatile as this thing's.

This is the only "artifact planeswalker" we ever know.

@divine_exodus: Nagoragama obviously didn't pay enough attention to what the Divining Top can do either... or Gifts Ungiven... or Cranial Extraction... or what Pithing Needle did to Planeswalkers and the metagame... kids these days...

One of the first equipment cards I was introduced to, and still undoubtedly one of the best.

The three abilities it has makes it an excellent card: you got removal, protection, and gain life. But the fact that counters stay on the card even when the creature it is equipped to dies, and the abilities occur at instant speed ... that's what makes this card a 5/5 for me.
