Magic the Gathering Card Analysis Sword of the Chosen

“Sword of the Chosen” is a colorless legendary artifact printed as a rare for the Magic the Gathering expansion set known as “Stronghold.”  So far, Sword of the Chosen seems to be an all right card on its own.  Keep in mind though that Stronghold was printed back in early 1998.  Now, it is nearing the end of 2010.  With the right combination of cards on the battlefield, Sword of the Chosen can be quite useful.  Currently, Sword of the Chosen is legal in the following formats: Tempest block (“Tempest,” Stronghold, and “Exodus”), Legacy, Vintage, and EDH (Elder Dragon Highlander).

The converted mana cost for Sword of the Chosen is two.  You will need two colorless mana to play Sword of the Chosen from your hand onto the battlefield.  For what Sword of the Chosen can do, the two mana is definitely worth it.  Keep in mind that Sword of the Chosen has two critical vulnerabilities.  First off, Sword of the Chosen is a legendary permanent.  Thus, Sword of the Chosen is subject to the “legendary rule.”  Should there be two cards on the battlefield at the same time named Sword of the Chosen, they both get sent to the graveyard.  Plus, Sword of the Chosen is an artifact.  Thus, Sword of the Chosen is susceptible to anything and everything that affects let alone targets artifacts.  Spells such as “Naturalize,” “Disenchant,” “Shatter,” and so forth will pop off Sword of the Chosen and send it to the graveyard.

What does Sword of the Chosen do in the first place?

By tapping Sword of the Chosen, a target legendary creature gets +2/+2 until the end of the turn.  Make sure that the target legend has neither Shroud nor Protection from Artifacts.  You will not be able to use this on cards such as “Tsabo Tavoc.”  

The ability of Sword of the Chosen is simply cut and dry for the most part.  But, there is the important question to be asked: How do you get the most out of Sword of the Chosen?

The best format you can get the most out of Sword of the Chosen would be EDH.  That way, you can use Sword of the Chosen on your general.  Thus, you can increase the damage points caused by your general.

One good example would be using a white Exalted deck.  Then, you use “Isamaru, Hound of Konda” from “Champions of Kamigawa” as your general.  By the next turn, if you are lucky, you can play Sword of the Chosen.  In that case, you can gradually deal general damage to your opponents via Isamaru, Hound of Konda.  

If you want, you can use “Mirror Gallery” from “Betrayers of Kamigawa.”  With that card on the battlefield, the legendary rule does not apply.  You can get “Prototype Portal” and pick Sword of the Chosen as the card you want to Imprint.

Overall, Sword of the Chosen is a pretty good card to have for the most part.  With the right combination of cards on the battlefield, Sword of the Chosen becomes rather useful and formidable.
