Sweet art. And just silly with turn-1 borderpost.

The whole blade cycle is truly amazing for commons. In this block, they're basically 3/2 2 drops with useful abilities across the board. Nice to see good, powerful commons like this. 5 stars.

this is of the cycle the most powerful, considering that Steel of the Godhead, Shield of the Oversoul, and Favor of the Overbeing are all able to be dropped onto this turn 3. the worst of those 3 is Steel, because without vigilance, the sureblade has no use for first strike

Oh gawd.
This+Favor of the Overbeing

Fear my 5/4 flying, vigilant, first striking BANT SUREBLADE!

Probably the most powerful of the cycle, which really says something because they are all playable for limited. My personal 2nd favorite.

Agreed, this card is actually way more nuts than people realize, considering the set it's in is nothing except multi color cards. A turn 3 bant sureblade with a shield of the oversoul attached is a 5/4 flying indestructible first striker. Steel of the godhead its a 5/4 unblockable lifelink. I'm not even sure what would happen if you had something like a beastmaster ascension go active and a lot of these blades on the field, deadly I'm sure.
