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
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.

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.
