@stygimoloch:

Sorry to contradict you, but I find swords quite powerful. Maybe not scimitars or rapiers, but broadswords and bihanders (or double-hander, whatever) are quite formidable. I disagree that they are less lethal than knives, because unless you have very good aim and can fire at a chink in one's armor, you need to get very close to someone to perform a killing stroke with a knife. Also, you can deflect and parry blows with swords, but unless you have 2 knives and know the cross-blade technique ( which is quite tricky) swords are a better option. I think axes and hammers are more powerful, but spears are weaker; they are made for accuracy. As for clubs, they are generally used for knocking another person out, unless they are spiked, which I classify as a mace.

The above is for bihanders, broadswords, double-edged swords, and falchions. As for scimitars, I agree with most of your assessment.

??????????????? If its a flying blade then shouldn't its power be extremely high and its toughness extremely low? Is there some flavor thing that I'm not getting here because this card is from an older set or is it just another dumb confusing card with little flavor to begin with?

Put it in a theme deck with Tatsumasa, the Dragon's Fang, Elbrus, the Binding Blade and a bunch of living weapons

@stygimoloch
In the hands of a master the sword will do more damage then any of the weapons you listed. Also fun fact, samurai swords were blunt and they bruise the shit out of opponents.

It's an OK card, I prefer it to Tormented Angel because it's color agnostic, but other than that it's basically the same thing.

There are far more interesting choices out there for the same cost (or less) if you want a lot of toughness.

For 0 power, but +1 toughness (so 0/6 rather than 1/5), and 1 less CMC, you can have a Hover Barrier.

For 3White you can have either Wall of Swords or Wall of Reverence, both excellent options with their own benefits.

A phenomenal defender for blue/white decks is Wall of Denial which is an 0/8 with Shroud for only 3 CMC!

There's also Æther Membrane, an 0/5 that automatically sends all cards blocked back to their owner's hand. All of these cards are ideal blockers because they have flying or reach.

But if you like that Dancing Scimitar isn't a defender and can also attack, how about Ancient Spider? It ha... (see all)
