Loving the new art. Already ordered one even though I almost just got the old one. The new art is just too awesome to pass up.

I also want to point out how strong this card is. You get to clear out utility creatures or deal even more damage to the player. The extra card draw means that after 1 hit, even if they remove it next turn, it is a 2-for-1. This card is just really strong. It's also a good source of colourless draw.

If your opponent has a blue/red deck, if they can't dig out an answer, they likely get steamrolled.

Finally got this in the mail. It looks so good. All 5 of my swords match now :) I like the old art, but all the new, matching art looks better together.

You know what the problem with Fire and Ice was?

It wasn't a SWORD!!!!

Best sword hands down. When you deal combat damage, electrolyze? Yes please. Combine with Sword of Feast and Famine to time walk every turn.

This sword is pure card advantage, if it connects you get removal + card draw without spending another card.

My only problem with this card is that I didn't trade for one back when Darksteel came out, and that it costs too darn much now. lol 5 stars.

Seems to me someone at Wizards has closure problems. They just had to finish the cycle, putting this in a Modern frame (and giving it the mythic symbol and Chris Rahn artwork). It'll be confirmed when they print the second Fortification/first Contraption...

Awesome card, the flavor does bug me a bit though. It's really more like a Sword of Thought and Action, since the Ice ability tends to tap things instead of drawing cards.

I remember people used to go like T1 Birds of Paradise, T2 this, then enjoy the game seriously tipped in your favor. Troll Ascetic was an even better target.

It makes Chimney Imp look good.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
