Sword of Sinew and Steel Discussion

Legendary Creature - Human Ally

Ally creatures you control get +1/+1 and have first strike.

2/4

Yes, the ability does affect himself.

Make a sword that gives protection from the colours that don't have a sword yet. Like Sword of Sinew and Steel, but protection form other colours. I think Gruul, Dimir and Selesnya.

It's been a while and wanted to revisit your deck I see you've made some changes and I've played with quite a few cards with my own variant of the deck (currently not up-to-date, check back later today I'll update it).

Cloud Cover has saved Alela's butt more times than I wish to count, if you can get your hands on it Fierce Guardianship is a no-brainer, there are other less expensive cards that can also act as strong counter spells in the deck such as Abjure and Familiar's Ruse. Dowsing Dagger  Flip and Sword of Sinew and Steel are both really solid additions with all the 1/1 flyers you have to beat face in with. Sword can also give Alela protection from kill, burn, and some exile effects while clearing artifacts and planeswalkers. Teferi's Ageless Insight can turn those "draw 1 on hit" effects into "draw 2 on hit" effects. Although this next card is more of a win-more effect Shark Typhoon really synergizes well with your no creature deck creating even more 1/1 massive flyers. also Reconnaissance Mission is another Coastal Piracy

I have all 7 swords. Would you guys recommend those? You know Sword of Fire and Ice and Sword of Sinew and Steel etc.

I like the deck a lot! I've been playing Aurelia for a long time, but my build is the balance build rather than the equipment focused build.

If you're going for the equipment build, I have a few suggestions!

For creatures, consider Fervent Champion, Kazuul's Toll Collector, and Balan, Wandering Knight. All of these hold equipment extremely well, and having creatures early on that can hold equipment and get you some early damage and advantage is great while you build up for the later threats.

As for equipment, Shadowspear is a really solid one- the lifelink and trample are both very, very relevant and the ability to take away hexproof and indestructible is really nice when you need it. Definitely recommend investing in that copy of Hammer of Nazahn that you've been eyeing, very worth it. Sword of Sinew and Steel has also been a really nice source of removal. It won't hit planeswalkers all the time, but when it does it's really good. It's also great for hitting artifacts, which happens a lot more often.

Lastly, since you are running Weathered Wayfarer, I recommend eventually picking up a copy of Ancient Tomb. This let's you turn the wayfarer, who normally only provides fixing and not ramp, into good ramp.

I like the deck though, you've got an upvote from me.

I don't know what your budget is but a Stoneforge Mystic would fit nicely in this deck.

Also all the "good swords": Sword of Fire and Ice, Sword of Feast and Famine , Sword of Body and Mind, Sword of Light and Shadow, Sword of Sinew and Steel, Sword of Truth and Justice, and Sword of War and Peace.

They're an investment for sure, but super on theme with the deck (I mean, knights and swords go together like tuna and mayo).

Neat deck, looks incredibly consistent. Not sure if I prefer Mother over Giver of Runes, but they each have niche advantages. Would Sword of Sinew and Steel work in the sideboard, as a way to deal with planeswalker or fast artifact decks?

dbpunk, the fact that Sword of Truth and Justice and Sword of Sinew and Steel were printed in Modern Horizons and not a standard-legal set suggests that WotC considers such cards to be too powerful for standard, so, if they print any further cards in that cycle, they will likely be in Commander 2020, and not the main set of Ikoria.
