This was very much a throw-away card when it
first appeared, at least as far as limited or
the more popular constructed formats were
concerned. Today, however, the card would be
much better. If this card were in the Kamigawa
block, it would be somewhat popular in limited
and possibly popular in Kamigawa block
constructed. Actually, for what Sword of the
Chosen does, it is very decent.
Considering that the Kamigawa environment is
heavily laden with Legends, Sword is a little
more meaningful now. More fun in casual decks,
and if you're going the Legend route and get a
hold of one of these, throw it in there for fun.
In limited, Stronghold was before my time, so
I'm not sure how useful Sword would be. But
let's face it...not too many drafts involving
Stronghold packs are a reality, so no worries.
Constructed - 2.5
Casual - 3.5
Limited - 2.5
