Sword of Kaldra - aka: "Make Your Own Badass Fattie"  While this equipment will be considered too expensive for tournament play, this is most assuredly a really fun casual card.  Slap this puppy on a pinger like Tim (Prodigal Sorcerer), and you can systematically wipe our your opponent's entire army. Make a deck of pingers.. how about Horseshoe crab with a Viridian Longbow attached to it? Ping... die!... untap... ping!... die... untap... you get a machine gun going off! Albeit, this isn't the most unawkward combo ever thought of, but it is what popped off the top of my head at this wee hour (I'm writing this at 1am), but you get the picture and please feel free to improve on it.  Let me know what you come up with too (click on my name at left).

In limited, this thing is broken good.  Your opponent better have held a piece of artifact removal back for this baby, or he's gonna be crying like one. You absolutely, positively play it, and consider it a first pick in draft.

Today we look at the prerelease promo card. This is a hefty piece of equipment, giving a creature a huge bonus. The secondary ability is kind of a moot point as a result, as most creatures will be killed before they can be removed from the game. The fact that it costs 8 mana to attach to the first creature makes this right out for constructed in my opinion.
In limited, however, play this. It will cause a lot of headaches for your opponent. Just make sure you're playing enough creatures, so that there is something for this to attach to.
Constructed: 1.5
Limited: 4.75

    In constructed its not as playable since its expensive and control decks or sligh rule the format.
    In limited its a bomb. It is a bit slow, but who cares when you have an unstoppable creature, one that preferably flys etc. At the pre-release in Oakland I saw this card end some games pretty easy. There is alot of artifact destruction though so use carefully.
