Umezawa's Jitte - Wednesday
I'm just going to be repeating what everyone else is saying.  If you are playing and aggressive creature heavy deck, just play the card.  You'll most likely want three copies.  Who cares that it's legendary?!?!

Umezawa's Jitte --
As far as equipment goes, you can do a lot worse than Umezawa's Jitte.  It doesn't cost too much to play or equip, it has several good abilities attached to it, and it lets you do tricks.  Don't forget that the charge counters go on Jitte, and two-out-of-three of them can be used even when Jitte isn't equipped to anything...though I suspect that if you get two swings in with the Jitte, the game is going to be close to over anyways.  Constructed, casual, or limited, I would highly recommend considering Jitte in any deck that plans on featuring equipment.

Umezawa's Jitte
Opinions were a bit mild on this card to start, but Jitte's popularity has been steadily increasing.  As an equipment, it's fairly versatile and strong, and its cost isn't prohibitive, so it's seeing more play of late. 
In casual, it's not super exciting, but still worth considering.  In limited, Jitte can be very strong and should be a quick pick.
