Seriously needs a proxy of it with the Red and Blue Suns of Mirrodin, Scars-Block style. Ditto Light and Shadow. Why isn't that on DeviantArt yet???

Nerf! Ban!
I really don't like this card. It's not even fun to win with. Then again, it's ever so satisfying to destroy.

best thing about this card is that IT'S NOT LEGENDARY. You can equip 2 on the same creature, attack for lots of damage, deal 4, draw 2 cards. YES

Absurdly overpowered in EDH.

I was shocked until i noticed that it doesn't say creature.

Oh, how much I love to swing with this one!

Although, it's price is horribly broken. It should have been costed UURR, or something like that. Being just 1 mana more expensive than Vulshok Morningstar is insane.

Best of the cycle in my opinion, but I would be happy to pull any of these awesome swords from a booster :P

Is someone really complaining that 3 mana is too much?

@Johnb86 - this is easily the best sword, not because of the protection effects, but because of the combat damage triggers. With every time you damage a player you get a burn spell and a card. That's the ultimate in card advantage - you could come out from a combat step ahead in life, ahead in creatures, and ahead in cards all in one swoop. And that's very, very repeatable - you can just keep using the burn to blast away blockers. If you aim that two damage at the player instead it's like this sword was giving +4/+2 rather than +2/+2.

Put on a single creature that gets through, you're dealing +2 damage to the player, 2 damage anywhere you want, and drawing a card every turn. That's absolutely backbreaking. The only sword whose effect really rivals this guy is Feast and Famine's land-untapping effect.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
