Sword of Sinew and Steel Discussion

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.

Cut Creatures for Voltron/Aura-Stuff like: Dont cut Cards like Mesa, Argothian...

Your Commander is also good for beating CMD DMG so use them. Also more Enchantments/Auras, more Carddraw = Awesome.

At long last pulled the trigger and traded for a Mana Crypt and Sword of Feast and Famine! Thalia, Heretic Cathar and Sword of Sinew and Steel are out in their stead.
