Scars Mirrodin Sword

Happy Monday MTG peeps wherever you may be,

Altough the Magic the Gathering spoilers for Scars of Mirrodin have started to slowly filter out and the new card Sword of Body and Mind had been out in the open since last month, it has been only since this last weekend that gamers have been able to physically hold it in their hand with the release of From the Vault : Relics. We're thinking it à propos to give this card a brief review now.

Sword of Body and Mind, 3
Artifact - Equipment, Mythic Rare
Whenever equipped creatuer deals combat damgae to a player, you put a 2/2 green wolf creature token onto the battlefield and that player puts the top ten cards of his or her library into his or her graveyard.
Equip 2

Sword of Body and Mind, a Scars of Mirrodin preview card that is being included in the upcoming limited edition box set From the Vault Relics, was revealed at the Magic: the Gathering panel during the San Diego Comic Con. Since then, MTG forum members have been yattering quite a lot about it and speculating just how it may fit in the next set / block.

Sword of Body and Mind is thought to be a wrap-up of the much loved powerful "Sword Cycle" from the original Mirrodin block. Equipment cards these days are given some serious thought as players can now 'tutor' it out of their deck with Stoneforge Mystic and equip it to some decent creature cards which could also be tutored out using Fauna Shaman producing some very exciting games at the kitchen table or your local FNM. Opening this card up in a limited play environment could be quite a bomb - just think of milling your opponent's entire deck in just three (un-obstructive) swings or being able to produce chump blockers.

So a quick heads up - Scars of Mirrodin pre-orders are now up over at MTG Mint Card, so click on over and planning your set purchases before they are all sold out.

Finally, a quick look at the name and number crunch as it stands right now - we're thinking quite a few artifacts as expected in the mix and perhaps even a few coloured / multi-coloured ones too . . .

Body and mind, green and blue, health and mana... It's amazing, it will dominate over kitchen tables, it will be "I win"-card in limited and I love artifacts, you know? But isn't it just too powerful?
