Although my favorite is Light and Shadow, I think this is the best Sword because it gives you the ability to deal direct damage and it gives you card advantage in let's say, White. Might even do well in a Soul Sisters life gain/aggro deck, as you would like to clear blockers and recover your hand.

I have to say that I truly appreciate the new art.
I love the contrast of the sword against the Suns of Mirrodin.
I feel that it's just more artistically and aesthetically pleasing.
I'm beyond ecstatic to open, buy, trade for, etc. for one of this and the new Light and Shadow to complete my collection.

"it looks like the other swords"

That's the point of choosing the same artist to do all 5 of them

Wish they had given this and Sword of Light and Shadow the mirran symbol, so they fit in with the rest even better. They did it with the guilded cards in MM anyway...

@ Hunter06: I must respectfully disagree.

I think the new art is phenomenal, and leagues beyond the old. I understand the abstract appeal of the old art, but the new is simply sharper, bolder, and badder-ass. Also, being that these swords (for some stupid reason) aren't legendary, I appreciate that Wizards is streamlining them and making them look like generic swords, because that's what they are.

Anyway, still an amazing card, art disputes aside.

It's basically a Top-Down Lightsaber.

*Start art rant*
I'm just going to come out and say it, this art is worse than its old art...
the old art was very distinct and abstract, this is just a flaming, icy sword. the old art looked very different from its new cousins, now he looks just like the rest of em. :/
*End art rant*

As for the functionally of this card, auto 5/5, its not busted to the point of stupidity like Jitte or Skull *Clamp or Batter* but it is very powerful and will turn heads

Edit: This discussion, Iv'e created a monster :O
Edit2: Great, I just pulled Sword of L&S, now I almost have to buy this one so it dosent look so outa place...

5/5 Stars

Although it's pretty nice, this isn't nearly as cool as the old foil promo version
