Battle Cry - When a creature with battle cry attacks, each other attacking creature gets +1/+0.

Living Weapon - When an Equipment with living weapon enters the battlefield, its controller puts a 0/0 black Germ creature token onto the battlefield and attaches the Equipment to it. A 0/0 creature on its own would immediately be put into its owner's graveyard for having 0 or less toughness, but with Flayer Husk attached to it, the Germ token will live to fight as a healthy 1/1. Other Equipment cards with living weapon give different power and toughness increases, but all of them give at least 1 point of toughness.

Metalcraft, Infect, Proliferate are returning abilities.
