A skinny salamander doesn't represent much of a threat on its own. A skinny salamander holding a knife, on the other hand...

Niceli Switchblade (C)

Artifact – Equipment
: Equipped creature gets +1/+0 until end of turn.
: Untap Niceli Switchblade.
Equip

Grappling Gun (C)

Artifact – Equipment
: Equipped creature gains flying until end of turn.
Equip 0
It doesn't exactly reach the sky, but the sky doesn't contain that many valuables in it anyway.

Tapping Equipment isn't exactly a theme in this set -- there are just Equipment that tap because I felt that added some flavor to it. Think of it as guns that take time to reload -- or whatever is close enough to guns in Velicta.

Murder Instrument (U)

Artifact – Equipment
, Unattach Murder Instrument: Equipped creature deals 3 damage to target creature.
Equip—,
"Please take some time to die. It will make me feel a bit better about reloading this thing."

If you ever feel your tapping Equipment are too slow, you can hire this fellow to help:

Weapons Technician (C)

Creature – Human Artificer
2/2
When Weapons Technician enters the battlefield, you may untap target artifact.

Weapons Technician may be too general. There are some cards that care about Equipment in specific:

Vigilante's Armory (U)

Enchantment
Equipment you control have "Equipped creature gets +2/+0."
Everything can be a weapon—be it through proper technique or proper reforging.

Weapons Trader (R)

Creature – Human Artificer
2/2
When Weapons Trader enters the battlefield, search your library for an Equipment card, reveal it and put it into your hand. Then shuffle your library.
Equipment spells you cast cost less to cast and equip abilities you activate cost less to activate.

Which is an attempt at fixing Stoneforge Mystic. I kinda feel that playing with Equipment could be something shared by both red and white, and there is some precedent.

Not all Equipment in Velicta tap, though. We have already seen one of them:

Brass Knuckles (U)

Artifact – Equipment
Equipped creature gets +2/+0.
Equip 0
Those teeth looked awful on you anyway.

Next time: the pirates of Velicta.
Awesome *-*
so good
Niceli Switchblade (C)

Artifact – Equipment
: Equipped creature gets +1/+0 until end of turn.
: Untap Niceli Switchblade.

A great idea, executed perfectly. Very cool

Might I just interject that making this a meme is the worst idea in magic in my opinion. It is too overpowered. It encourages cheating it in play. Essentially 99/100 times it is cheated in play instead of hardcast. Not only that, but you essentially win when it comes into play.

Make five-color hybrid tribal instant with buyback, kicker, cycling, card draw, token production, a steal effect, alternate casting cost and landfall that embodies the love that your mom and I share.
I think you just killed all chances of my card being elegant. Ardency :1mana::symwu::symbr: Tribal Instant - Soldier You may have target opponent gain control of 3 permanents you control rather than pay ~'s mana cost. As an additional cost to cast ~, choose two creatures you control, and sacrifice the rest. If you control a soldier, you can't sacrifice permanents this turn. Landfall - If you had a land enter the battlefield under your control this turn, instead choose 4 creatures. Kicker You get an emblem with "As long as you control both chosen creatures, they have protection from everything." If ~ was kicked, creatures you control get +1/+1 for each creature card in your graveyard until end of turn. Cycling :2mana: When you cycle ~, put two 2/2 Soldier creatures onto the battlefield. Would this EVER fit on a card?~
Aside from a few wording mishaps (should say "each chosen creature" because it's not necessarily two) this is nice. Very simple and elegant. I like the alternate cost a lot, and the kicker goes nicely with the sacrifice. However, the cycling seems a bit powerful (4 power and a card for 3? Cycling is supposed be bad. 8/10 EDIT: Just looked up "ardency". Lol.

Vivisect Sorcery As an additional cost to cast Vivisect, sacrifice a creature. Draw three cards. "For the sake of humanity," the surgeon whispered. The knife had never felt heavier in his hand.
I don't think a world that sacrifices so much would want to stop the making of children .
Vivisect =/= vasectomy
Now I just feel silly.
