I like it.
It can be tutored with Trinket Mage + Attached with Brass Squire.
Not the the best combo there is but all the same, I can't wait to get my PING on.
- I might even throw in a Soliton for good measure.

Would be more playable if it was 3 CMC and 3 equip, but even then it's still overcosted. Unless Avacyn Restored brings out some kind of artifact equipping utility, like a Puresteel, this won't move out of the "fun gimmick" category.

But it was sure fun to strap this on my Diregraf Captain in the pre-release.

It costs 1 to make a pile of silver arrows, but 5 to teach someone how to fire them proficiently. Makes sense to me.

This is a LIMITED card, people.

Getting one of these on a Midnight Guard, Galvanic Juggernaut, Kessig Recluse, Typhoid Rats, Diregraf Captain or Ambush Viper completely locks down the board in draft. Even without one of these synergistic creatures, having 5 mana open means you can ping twice each turn, and keeping that 1 damage up makes first strike and Geistflame a lot better.

If it were any cheaper to equip, it would be completely overpowered in limited. Wizards learned from their Viridian Longbow mistake.

It got 5 to equip cause you put it on something with Deathtouch you break the game. Like Typhoid Rats. Yeah.

Wizards, I know you just printed Puresteel Paladin, but for christ's sake. Are you high?

Alright with Puresteel Paladin? Free to equip, so ping-equip-ping-equip. Then finish off your opponent with Mortarpod shots!
Equip cost is high so that you can't easily turn your creatures all into pingers, which would be strong in limited for sure.
EDIT; Very nice in limited, there's a few nice combos for it there. Anything with Deathtouch is obvious, and powerful, but things like Midnight Guard, Niblis of the Breath, and Galvanic Juggernaut hadn't occured to me at first.
It's star role, however, is killing Huntmaster of the Fells. TWANG!

Equip cost is pretty nasty. In Modern I'd take Viridian Longbow instead almost any day of the week.

Found myself nodding and wondering why the rating was so low until I got to the equip cost. Then I just got sad.

I would love to see a duel between someone wielding a Razor Boomerang and someone equipped with this. No matter who loses, we all win.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
