Reminds me a lot of the old Dancing Scimitar except better

Blade of Grass

Artifact Creature - Plant Sword

Blade of Grass can't be blocked by creatures with flying.

As long as you control another creature, Blade of Grass becomes an equipment artifact with Equip and "Equipped creature gets +3/+2 and can't be blocked by creatures with flying."

3 / 2

Make a counterspell that has modes. For example, Dawn Charm , Izzet Charm , and Dromar's Charm all have a type of counter effect as one of their modes; I want a counterspell that is primarily a counterspell with modes of other things going on in it.

Ensouled Scimitar and Dancing Scimitar cut out the middleman. If you want sword tribal, you need swords holding swords.

Thank you for making this deck TheCenterOfTheUniverse! I'm very impressed at the outcome. A Dancing Scimitar hitting 5 damage is actually pretty decent! I can't wait to order this deck. +1!!

I was kind of hoping for a Slagwurm Armor haha.

Jaddi Lifestrider and Crater Elemental seem good for this deck. Wall of Roots is a solid ramp card for this deck. Sporecap Spider and Dancing Scimitar would be good against fliers. Thallid Shell-Dweller and Wall of Tanglecord would be good early game for blockers and late game could remove defender with Assault Formation.
