This tricky piece of equipment will be very good
in limited play but may not
be very popular in constructed play. The only
problem for this card in limited play is the
number three: it costs three mana to play, three
mana to equip and three mana to activate.
Nevertheless, this equipment will help a wide
variety of draft decks attack more aggressively.
Of course, the cool move will be to attack with
your creature equipped with the Sword and then,
when combat damage has been put on the stack, to
untap him to increase his defense and to have
him ready to block on your opponent's turn.
This card is interesting. The three mana cost to
cast, activate, and equip it will hold it back
in constructed environments. Casual players
should like this card though as it provides a
bonus for everyone. Limited players will enjoy
it mostly due to the small tricks you can pull
off with it.
Sword of the
interesting. Sometimes cards like this are
unwieldly to use, but this one could be
really good if you can pull it off. If the
activation costs were 2 instead of 3, it
would be amazing. But the 3 cost may still
get the job done - we'll have to see how it
works out in real decks over time. In
limited, a very solid equipment card. Easy
to play in any build because it's an
artifact, so it's a quick pick in draft, and
an auto include in sealed deck.
