Sword of Body and Mind Discussion

You have pretty much all at least GOOD equipment, most of it very good, but cuts I would make to accomodate the Mirrodin Swords, Batterskull and Jitte would be like... Pariah's Shield, Sword of Vengeance, Basilisk Collar, Deathrender, Haunted Cloak, and Sword of the Animist (Ramp is great, but not what you want to be doing with your equipment, and +1/+1 isn't enough otherwise). I also am torn on Gauntlet of Power in this deck. It's probably fine, but it is more a "buff a bunch of dudes to go wide" piece, instead of a "make one dude massive and kill a player entirely with one blow" kind of thing.

Also, I meant to mention earlier that since they are pretty expensive, you should definitely not worry about getting certain pieces of that top tier equipment if you can't. Sword of Body and Mind is much less good in a voltron deck, or a 100 card deck-game. You're never milling someone out with it outside of 40 or 60 card formats. Still very very good, not the one I would focus on. I would put Batterskull, Sword of War and Peace, Sword of Fire and Ice, and Sword of Feast and Famine are the ones I would consider a top priority for this kind of deck.

Good luck! Seems like a sweet build.

Cool commander!

Looks like you could use more W sources and trim back on the G in your mana-base.

Maybe a Pride Sovereign. An Inventors' Fair and Welding Jar. An Eternal Witness and a Noxious Revival/Reclaim/Regrowth.

I also wonder about Brimaz, King of Oreskos + Sword of the Meek.

Would any of the pro(tection) swords be helpful, like Sword of Body and Mind, Sword of Feast and Famine, Sword of Light and Shadow, Sword of Fire and Ice, or Sword of War and Peace? Or a Batterskull with Stoneforge?

Happy brewing!

Any reason to not use Batterskull, Umezawa's Jitte, Sword of Fire and Ice, Sword of Feast and Famine, Sword of Body and Mind, Sword of Light and Shadow, and Sword of War and Peace? Arguably these are among the best equipment in the game, all conspicuously absent? I know some are on the pretty expensive (in dollar amount) end of things, but some aren't too bad, and the power level is absurd.

Other obvious upgrades come in the mana base, getting rid of so many tap lands. Horizon Canopy, all of the fetches that get Plains or Forests (Flooded Strand, Wooded Foothills, Windswept Heath, Marsh Flats, Verdant Catacombs, Arid Mesa, and Misty Rainforest), for budget don't forget the Mirage fetches (Flood Plain, Mountain Valley, Grasslands). Others to not forget would be like Flagstones of Trokair

Although you said no more than $10, Enlightened Tutor will help for your artifact search. Also, I see you have Sword of War and Peace as a maybeboard. I think Sword of Body and Mind isnt too bad or expensive. Helps protect against that blue spot removal. You can never go wrong with Lightning Greaves and Swiftfoot Boots. For a little fun and offensive ability, True Conviction. Double Strike and Lifelink.

Generally speaking it would not be recommended to run Blighted Agent and normal damage in the same deck, as it often dilutes your overall gameplan. If you curve Slither Blade into Blighted Agent, rather than being able to attack your opponent for two on the third turn (without pumps, assuming you played a two mana one power creature without infect) instead you would be only attacking for one and one infect.

It also just makes your opponents life easier. They see you play the agent and they don't have to worry about it for a long time if your main kill condition is regular damage. Or conversely they answer your infect creatures and you end up stuck with less creatures that deal regular damage.

I would suggest Ninja of the Deep Hours, it can draw you cards (which is awesome) gets sneaky with your unblockable critters, and is also a ninja, which is just fearsome.

I would be a fan of moving the Bonesplitter from the maybeboard to the main deck, it hits fairly hard.

Also I probably wouldn't run Explorer's Scope in this deck, with a fairly low to the ground curve, and ability to cast multiple spells a turn with Hidden Strings you're probably not going to need the extra land and you'll end up spending a card (the scope) and some mana to just equip it and not profit that much.

At which point, as much as I like the card, I have to recognize Trepanation Blade isn't that good. It's a prohibitively expensive card to cast and equip (five mana in modern should give you a very good chance of winning the game). While not an economical choice if you did you could go with one of the sword cycles, which also prevent your creatures from getting destroyed sometimes while also being heavy hitters. See: Sword of Light and Shadow, Sword of Fire and Ice, Sword of War and Peace, Sword of Body and Mind, Sword of Feast and Famine, my favorites out of these would be Fire and Ice or Feast and Famine because they do provide some direct interaction in the form of adding a card to your arsenal or taking one away from your opponent. I understand they are somewhat pricy, instead you might go more along the lines of the Bonesplitter route and add some of those as well as Darksteel Axe.

You probably don't need quite so many lands, I usually have great luck hovering closer to 38-40. If you like token pooping I'd recommend things like: Moonsilver Spear , Captain's Claws , Sword of Body and Mind ... That one legendary cat that poops tokens for however many equipment she has attached.

I've had great luck with the selective boardwipes, such as Divine Reckoning... But that is more of a voltron thing.

I've had the most success with Voltron with Sram... but that isn't saying that you couldn't try a new direction.
