Hey everyone! Sword of Benevolent Life is an interesting card. Unfortunatly, you need to run Light to use this card. 2 mana is very cheap for the effect, but chances are, if you're running a Light/Nature mix, about half your creatures on the field when you play this card will be Light blockers, giving this card little effect in the long run. The power boost is nice, but I feel that this card is too limited in it's effect range. An average card.

Constructed: 3.5/5

Limited: 3.5/5

Sword of Benevolent Life- Rare-#53(DM-04)

Short review today people, sorta wish it could be longer but it cant.

Ok card, this could be the main card in a nature/light deck, this thing would kick *censored* if it was a creature.

Ratings:
constructed- 3/5 like I said it would have kicked *censored* if it wasn't a spell
limited- 4/5 light has the most cards next to darkness so this should be pretty nice
 
Knives101 Sword of Benevolent Life

All your creatures get power attacker +1000 for every Light creature in the
Battle Zone? Well this card isn't totally useless. In a Light/Nature deck it
can give all of your creatures power attacker +4000 for a turn. Even so I
don't think that's such a great combo. I wouldn't exactly throw this thing
into the garbage bin just yet. Newer cards are always coming out, so a good
combo could emerge one day.

Sword of Benevolent Life

This is an interesting card, but, in my opinion, isnít playable. Giving power attacker to all your creatures is nice, but power attacker is only needed when taking out giant creatures or overrunning big blockers. Youíll need to swarm with your light creatures to make this effective, and youíll need to hope that most of your opponentís creatures are tapped to make use of this. Itís pretty worthless.

This is added support to nature/light, but simply isnít effective enough. If you can tap your opponentís creatures and set this thing off with a nice +4000/5000 effect to clear your opponentís field, youíll be set with a huge advantage. Unfortunately, I see this thing being dropped into mana a lot.

2/5
