Sword of Shock and Draw

It's really funny to look at the old comments that speculate about what the other swords will look like.

This card equipped on mirran crusader is nuts. You end up with a 4/4 creature with double strike and protection from green, black, red, and blue. This makes him only blockable by artifacts and white creatures. If he hits, he will do 8 damage, then 2 damage to two targets or 4 damage to one, and then draw you two cards. Put a Spirit mantle on him and he swings for 14 every turn and is unblockable.

Haha, I love how all the sword predictions are still lying around. Mirrodin blocks always have heavy fallout.

I still think this is the best sword.

What I think is really interesting, though, is that the effects from this one actually match up quite nicely with Fire/Ice. Two damage and a card draw - something from each half. No, the damage can't be divvied up and you don't get to tap a permanent. But there's only room for so much text on the card, and does it really need to be any better?

3 mana... come on! Well, at least all colours can use it, so okay.

This, along with light and darkness, there really should've been something like "Sword of Seed and Stone" for protection from Green and other artifacts.

As for the card itself, the draw is a great speedup and a free shock every time I hit my opponent in the face is such sweet gratification The protection is lovely and +2/+2 while seeming near pointless is a nice little cherry on top~

More like sword of card advantage.

The name always reminds me of that fantasy novel...

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
