My bad, I didn't realize you wanted more card draw pre-Sekki. Looking at your list you already have about 13 card draw sources, 9 of which don't appear to be too reliant of Sekki. That's actually a pretty good number, but I you still want more then green has other options:

Harmonize is still great here. It's not a flashy card, but it's straightforward and efficient.

Regal Behemoth could be interesting since it introduces Monarch into the game. It also doubles your mana which helps cast Sekki. I feel like Monarch could advance your game plan both pre and post Sekki. Before hand it's just a card draw source that can get your opponents fighting amongst themselves. Afterwards, if you have a giant Sekki in play, your opponent with the Monarch has to think hard about taking a big hit and giving you card draw, or blocking Sekki and giving you spirits.

Abundance isn't card draw, but it is very good card selection. Lifecrafter's Bestiary is another along those lines.

Sword of Fire and Ice and the new Sword of Forge and Frontier from ONE are also decent card advantage sources. These are nice too since you can equip them to other creatures for early value and then move them onto Sekki for added protection/buffs once it is in play. Though be aware that the latter sword is a non-bo with your green enchantments.

Good luck! I really like this idea you have going here.

One consideration is also how nicely the swords play in a voltron setting (where several are likely to see play in the same deck). In the same vein of thought would be; how nicely do they play with double strike? - a common goal with voltron & swords. Sword of Fire and Ice remains a chart-topper with a suited-up double striker.

I put Sword of Sinew and Steel higher on the list personally. I love repeat removal on artifacts (one sword that is more bonkers with double strike), typically pretty relevant. The planeswalker removal is neat when it comes up, but yeah, it can be a dead ability. I also like pro-red as I've been known to use quite a few dmg-based boardwipes.

Sword of Light and Shadow kindof has a curse for me where I almost never care about the graveyard-to-hand in the decks where I want a sword & usually I just want to make a lifelink-beefcake for lifegain. Though pro is a really nice protection combo. & I do love Orzhov, kindof my current labor of love.

New sword is: Sword of impulse & ramp. It is decent.

Crow-Umbra, that is not too bad, but not exactly game-breaking, either, which I imagine was a deliberate decision by WotC.

It is far too early to add sword of forge and frontier to this list, so I shall wait until I have had time to see it in action, firsthand. I also am very glad that the sword is pointing upward in the artwork, maintaining Sword of Light and Shadow's status as the only sword that is pointing downward in its art.

However, I need to make another revision to this list, since I have, indeed, decided to make the change that I considered, above, so my list is now as follows:

8: Sword of War and Peace

7: Sword of Body and Mind

6: Sword of Truth and Justice

5: Sword of Sinew and Steel

4: Sword of Light and Shadow

3: Sword of Hearth and Home

2: Sword of Feast and Famine

1: Sword of Fire and Ice

I switched the places of Sword of Light and Shadow and Sword of Hearth and Home, because, as much as I like the former sword, it simply does not have sufficient impact on a game for me to rank it any higher, whereas I have realized hos good the latter sword is; putting an additional land on the battlefield is always good, and, even if the creature that is "flickered" does not have a triggered ability, the flickering can still remove unwanted auras and counters from it. I am sad that my favorite sword is now at only fourth place, but fourth out of eight (soon to be nine) swords is still fairly impressive.

I just realized that I put the wrong numbers on my list, above, so the proper numbering is now as follows:

8: Sword of War and Peace

7: Sword of Body and Mind

6: Sword of Truth and Justice

5: Sword of Sinew and Steel

4: Sword of Hearth and Home

3: Sword of Light and Shadow

2: Sword of Feast and Famine

1: Sword of Fire and Ice

I am very sorry for that mistake, but I have now corrected it.

Mark Rosewater has revealed that Phyrexia: All Will Be One shall have a new sword of X and Y, which means that I shall eventually need to add it to this list, but, for the present, I have a revision to make (again, this list is purely my own preference, not based of any statistics or data), so my new listing is as follows:

  1. Sword of War and Peace

  2. Sword of Body and Mind

  3. Sword of Truth and Justice

  4. Sword of Sinew and Steel

  5. Sword of Hearth and Home

  6. Sword of Light and Shadow

  7. Sword of Feast and Famine

  8. Sword of Fire and Ice

I moved Sword of Body and Mind to seventh place because its abilities are so different from each other that it is very difficult to build a deck that can truly take advantage of both of them, and I shall admit that I am actually contemplating switching Sword of Hearth and Home with Sword of Light and Shadow, because I am starting to think that the former is actually quite useful, but I shall leave those two as they are, for the moment, since the latter is still my personal favorite of the swords.

I also have put a link to this thread on my user profile, since I shall eventually revisit it when the final two swords in this cycle are printed.

What does everyone else here think of my new ranking?

Ditched: the Cabal Coffers, Riveteers Overlook, Retreat to Hagra, Thaumatic Compass  Flip, and 1 from both Shakedown Heavy & Sword of Fire and Ice for swamps. Gets me up to 22 swamps at 60 cards. Gonna see how much better it'll run now!
