    You may play equip abilities any time you could play an instant.

    At the worst, it is a 2/2 Grizzly Bear, which is never a bad card in an aggro-weenie deck.

    At best, it turns your Equipment friendly WW in a combat-math monster.

    2 Cards which seem downright unfair with Shikari:
    Lightning Greaves - While it doesn't seem like proto-typical WW equipment card, it makes every one of your creatures impervious to single-target creature removal for zero mana.

    Skullclamp - With this you never ever have to worry about your creatures dying during combat, b/c for 1 measly mana they replace themselves twice over.

    This is a damn strong ability....

    Combine the Shikari with Auriok Steelshaper and soon you'll be able to move around all your equipment at instant speed for free.

    Shikari + Lightning Greaves is powerful enough, but I really like its combo with Skullclamp because you can draw two cards whenever one of your creatures dies.

    Although, it must be pointed out that moving Equipment means that only one creature will enjoy its benefits at a time. That's why it's probably not going to work too well with, say, Bonesplitter, unless you move it off of one monster to give it to an unblocked monster to deal more damage, but if that's the case, your original monster can't get the +2/+0 boost from the Bonesplitter.

    This opens up avenues for all sorts of fun combat tricks. It makes the Swords much more powerful, as if they already weren't cool enough. :D

    Shakari + Glavemaster + Steelshaper = Abuse

    Wouldn't it be nice if it was an enchantment so Black couldn't screw you over with Sacrifice Effects?

    Soul Sclupter. Oops. :D
