Pariah's Shield - 5 Artifact - Equipment (Rare) All damage that would be dealt to you is dealt to equipped creature instead. Equip 3 The Pariah casual deck archtype just became easier to pull off. It's not nearly as cheap as Pariah, but being a piece of equipment does allow it to become a card worth building around. I've played around with Pariah a few times, but all too often my specific target (say Cho-Manno or Voice of All) would be picked off by a standard removal spell, and I'd be up Oink's Creek. In the end it wasn't worth the effort. But the Shield (huh, another Shield) is very unlikely to suffer the same fate. One Pariah-friendly creature dies, now you just have to wait for the next one. On a side note, I do not think it is a coincidence that Phytohydra came out in the same set. Man, these two together? Wow.
