If you would have told someone right when future sight came out, that one day this card would be banned, they would think you were nuts. Also, since you time traveled there to say that, pick up as many tarmogoyfs as you can.

This is more synergy then a combo, but one of my friends runs this in an infect deck, and her favorite thing to put this on is an ichorclaw myr. That way it is a 2/3 with infect, but if it is blocked its suddenly a 4/5. She also runs trading post because these three cards (while not a combo) make trading post insane.
Trading post in her deck
Ability 1: Discard sword of the meek, gain four life
Ability 2: Pay 1 life get a free blocker.
Ability 3: Sacrifice goat or other useless creature, get an ichorclaw for other trading post back from the graveyard.
ability 4: Sac a sword of the meek, get card advantage.

In her infect deck, she uses these abilities at instant speed (especially when she is chump blocking) and she did awesome things.

At one point she had two untapped trading posts, and the enemy played shatter storm. She sacrificed the first TP to itself, then she sacrificed an artifact creature (using the creature sac abi... (see all)

Nearly every card in Time Spiral block was a throwback to at least one previously printed card.

This card references Aegis of the Meek, which preceded equipment and used an older template in an attempt to represent creatures wielding weapons. These swords both reference Pendelhaven and belonged to Jacques le Vert, one of the original protectors of Pendelhaven, and can be seen in his art.

This card is actually banned in the Modern format because of its incredibly synergistic effect with Thopter Foundry.

Is this a reference to Pendelhaven?

The meek will inherit this sword.

... I've just realised something.

This is the ONLY equipment card to exist in Dominaria.

Though Future Sight does feature Lorwyn and Mirrodin stuff, so could be from there... but still, unless this is meant to somehow be foreshadowing Mentor of the Meek or Pendelhaven or something, this remains the only thing in Dominaria that people can pick up.

Destroy it with Krosan grip, if the sword returns, exile it with return to dust. Great flavor.

Sort of a combination of Holy Strength and Pendlehaven, in Equipment form and therefore significantly better than, at least, the former card. The potential for card advantage pushes this into Constructed-playable territory.

Strangely, when Jacques le Vert, the owner of the sword is on the battlefield, this sword doesn't auto-equip green creatures...

Banned in extended thanks to boring combo. Don't you hate when a flavorful card is done in by one with much less? :P
