: VERY useful, 3 uses. Opponent attacked all out just have his creatures not untap, if he's got a load of blockers and you need to get through for the win, tap two of them. Or just save your behind for a turn. Useful and versatile, fairly cheap too

: Haste and can't touch the creature for two without an equip cost. Harmful in certain cases, play it second turn after a first turn equipment third turn steelshaper and you got a 3/3 or a 4/2 haste cant touch it. or if you prefer a den-guard or cub. ALL hit the opponent, and since your steelshaper is the backbone of your army protect it for 0.

: The card that makes the deck work. Both abilities, the equip between creatures for 0 and have em pumed up with something on the steelshaper.
Leonin Den-Guard: the 1/3 for two is great against any direct damage and great for blocking, a quick equipand you hit your opponents with a big toughness without losing a blocker.

All creatures in play are buried.
: Just to stop getting swamped by big creatures, mostly against beasts, but only after you've lost all your creatures. The equipment stays till next creature you play and then the fast replay comes.

The story is that I had all the components for this deck with the exception of three steelshapers. This is the night of the Friday Night Magic. I get there half an hour early and being a known and regular guy, someone let me borrow one, and I traded for the other two. First round I played goblins and won when my opponent had mana screw the third game. Round two beasts, He had two bad draws and I came through with fliers whether he had ornithopter out or not. I don't have the wrath's and I didn't draw the circle,bye in the third round to the semifinals. Played affinity, one both games, he got no shrapnel blasts and either too many creatures or too many lands.
Finals are beasts and the guy I played had the whole deck foil, very skilled mtg player. I won first game, swamped him with creatures, second game I got wooped. Third game I pulled 3 nectars but had two mana, I had to dish out the creatures and he had mana screw along with no fliers. I split the 60$ store credit because I didn't want to get to the finals and not show anything for it, that and this was my first win ever. So my deck squeaked by with versatility. I will update this article when I test it against agro, land destruction, counter and zombies. I'm scared against the counters
