I once saw a dancing scimitar equipped with slagwurm armor, leonin scimitar, sword of kaldra, and cranial plating.
I want you to just try to realistically picture this in your mind.

The very first living weapon.

@divine_exodus: not sure why apples are being compared with oranges here. Scimitars were designed for use on horseback, hence the light build and the curve (easier to slash with from a horse). Zweihanders are impractical at best when you're on a horse. Different weapons, different cultures, different functions.

As for the card itself... It ought to be equipped with swords. You know, a sword's even better when it's swinging a sword.

@KikiJikiTiki: Personally I picture that all the artifacts just assemble as if they were being worn by an invisible humanoid figure, with three arms in this case (so, the armor floats in the air, surmounted by the plating where the head would be, and the swords levitate by its sides).

Of course it has high toughness. Have you ever tried to kill a sword?

I can't help but feel that a flying weapon would have more power than defense.
But I guess that's me.

@ SavageBrain89: Swords aren't actually as dangerous as you'd think. The reason they're a good weapon is because they're quick and versatile, but an axe, club, spear, hammer or even shield will generally do more damage. Even a knife is more lethal than a sword, believe it or not, should it strike properly (because the shorter a weapon is, the more force you have going through it). It's just a hell of a lot harder to land a good blow with a knife.

Smart move dropping this to uncommon, imo. It's still a good card, but just doesn't have the splashiness or uniqueness of a rare anymore.

Old art is loads better. This is one is awkward

Awww, I liked the old flavor text better.

Good art on this one, though.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
