Eh! Where is the love for this card? All I see is how we can kill this guy.

Phyrexian crusader reminds me of a mini Akroma (I remember black and red was the removal colors, now white and red with black somewhere close by).

So, I shall attach Sword of Vengeance on to this guy and have my lil neo-akroma in my grixis triple threat deck:

Mill: Hedron crab + fetches + Wind Zendikon + Bloodchief Ascension

(enchant fetch with zendikon, block, sac and get 3 more land drops. also the zendikon helps with getting counter on bloodchief.)

Damage: creatures + blightning + active ascension + mill

Poison counters: Phyrexian crusader + Sword of Vengeance

note that bloodchief ascension keeps hedron crab a good draw from a dead draw when you are mid - late game

You know what's fun here?

Sword of Body and Mind

Protection from Red, Green, White, and Blue.

Have a Knight Exemplar on the field and the only thing you have to look out for in standard is Brittle Effigy... unless I missed something

actually he does die to pyroclasm because it doesn't target, right? either way this is a great card!

About damn time we got a seriously bad ass zombie. Good work on this one wizards - its my favorite card in Beseiged.

But thats not saying a whole hell of a lot, really...

@MyrBattlecube - It still falls to Pyroclasm because protection only protects it from being targeted by spells or abilities of the closen type or color. Pyroclasm doesn't target, it hits everything on the board.

He doesn't really need a sword and most decks you would use him in, equipment would really just slow the deck down. He mostly serves as an all purpose attacker and defender while you have guys like Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas buffing things like Inkmoth Nexus and Vault Skirge, or other creatures with evasion for your primary attacking force.

Go for the throat makes this MUCH less good

This thing has a ton of protections, yes.

But Go for the Throat, and Ultimate Price will kill it. And they are the common things to think of besides Doom Blade.

Sword of War and Peace mimics this level and kind protection.

A Sword of War and Peace ON a Tidehollow Sculler buids a Better Phyrexian Crusader.

Sword of Feast and Famine on Tidehollow Sculler or this is an absolute nightmare.

TWO Swords on Tidehollow Sculler is like a much easier to make Progenitus. In either case, you want Elspeth, Knight-Errant to protect both your Artifacts AND Creatures. I don't know any really easy ways to give Indestructible to both Swords and Sword-bearers
