The trigger is pretty powerful by itself. And it allows an infinite saccing loop with Su-Chi.

Regarding flavor, i would have supposed this card to provide +1/+0 for each artifact you control, since that's the ability all Nim share.
But then again, we had an equipment of that sort already.
This equipment seems to be for the cratures body, while Cranial Plating is - as the name suggests - for its head.

Guess you haven't been playing long, but yes a creature stolen by this will be black and lose any other color and creature type, but the creature will retain any other aspect of itself such as activated abilities, static effects, etc.

As long as it touches "your graveyard" you can target it. So if something would put an opponent's card into your graveyard, then feel free to nab it back.

VERY powerful in Limited. Put this on any creature with infest and it's nearly a game win. Best option for this is Corpse Cur. This will grant either a huge card advantage or a swift win.

Other great targets are Sylvok Replica or Razor Hippogriff-

The only thing about this card that makes me sad is that the graveyard ability is a triggered ability, and thus can't be paid for by Grand Architect's ability.

"I think they put the wrong watermark on this card."
- I agree!
one of the rules for getting the Phyrexia Watermark is: "'The card was a creature with a "put into a graveyard from the battlefield" effect. "
this seems close enough to that effect, and definitely 'feels' like it should be Phyrexian.

one combo that I managed to pull off with this was:
Perilous Myr + Throne of Geth
Sacrifice the Myr with the Throne, deal 2 damage, pay 4 to return it

sad to see that I can't build that deck and keep the Factions aligned for Game Day

Ohhhhh yes, this combos very well with hand of the praetors and ichor rats, bringing them back from the dead to add even more poison counters. Also corpse cur will be able to bring keep your grave yard empty and your hand full of creatures, and the opponent's creatures full of -1/-1 counters. In fact, this combos very well with all infect creatures, since evasion is critical in an infect deck, at least the way I play. Getting both evasion, +2/+2 boost and zombify in instant form, I love this card, nice job wizards.

Actually i have been playing long, it's just that it says it becomes a Black zombie with intimidate, which I just wanted to know if that it also over ruled all other static abilities because of it's wording, and maybe activated and triggered as well. The ability didn't say gain is why I questioned it.

is card is goofy good, for example I saw at the last FMN I went to, one guy was playing some home brewed blue/black kinda control deck with all shroud creatures vs the normal blue/white control. the U/B player somehow has a Sphinx of Jwar Isle in play and casted the deathmantle with 5 mana open. the U/W player has that WTF look your creatures have shroud and cast DOJ and the other guy says thanks for a 7/7 sphinx and then there was a judge called and we had to explain the difference between equip and attach. god I love stupid goofy cards

It's not terrible by any means. But we already have Mimic Vat, which is way superior.
