Since no one here seems to have mentioned it yet, does anyone remember Wee Dragonauts?

Here's a homebrewed recipe for a "Shock Cannon" I whipped up...

1. Play a high-toughness creature
2. Equip creature with Livewire Lash
3. Build up your storm count (I'm a fan of Grinning Ignus)
4. Use Grapeshot on equipped creature...

The end result: DOUBLE Grapeshot! Grapeshot becomes... Shock Cannon!

(Of course, there are other, arguably better ways to abuse this card. The shock cannon is always a surprise to the opponent though, since they never see it coming...)

EDIT: Could just use a Darksteel creature (like the Myr) instead of a high-toughness creature. Somehow I didn't think of that...

EDIT EDIT EDIT:
I came up with this independently, but am glad others had thought of it too (@Incendiary Saint)
Now, mono-blue will have a cannon that outdoes Fireball... impressive.
I would like to propose the ideal creature candidate for the Gigadrowse + Livewire combo...
His name is Flensermite.

Grem... (see all)

T1: Glistener Elf
T2: Livewire Lash, attack with Glistener Elf
T3: Equip, Giant Growth, attack with Glistener Elf

9 poison!

Seeds of Strength would be useful too.

Great in standard infect, but Rancor is still better in legacy infect. Each gets +2/+0, but Livewire Lash equips for 4 the first time and 2 each subsequent time, while Rancor "equips" for only Green the first time and Green each subsequent time (and on top of that, Rancor is immune to enchantment destruction). Livewire Lash's damage effect may be better than trample, but not that much better.

Equip Livewire Lash to creature with Infect:
Cast Seeds of Strength on that creature.
Target player receives 6 poison counters and faces at least a 4/4 creature.
No blockers? GG.
Blockers? Name your favorite instant...(insert Evil Laugh here)

I'm also working on a way to combine this with Ground Rift and Infect. I think I can use the storm mechanic to break this card. Currently working on a stormy way to kill all 4 of my opponents at the same time during my next multiplayer game. Suggestions appreciated...

ps. To all those people who will remind me that this is a lightning rod for removal, most point removal that targets this creature will still trigger it's ability before death. All Hail Phyrexia!!!

Actually, I completely misunderstood this card. I thought Equipment would count as a target, which would have been awesome with Shuko or that an ability would trigger it like from a Shaman en-Kor. Neither is true. It has to be a spell.

This is still an awesome card, since with Flickering Ward this becomes a massive repeatable monowhite burn combo (essentially 2 damage for every 2 white mana). It's just not bordering on the realm of ridiculous like I thought.
