    You know, I think this Orc is a lady. It's not immediately obvious, but the most telling sign is that "she" appears to have a bust hidden behind that muscular arm. Aside from that, less conclusive details include the feminine haircut, comparatively thin waist, and wide hips. I could be wrong, but having realized the possibility, now I can't unsee the Orc being female.

    You know what they say: Hell hath no fury and all that.

    So, does this mean there will be a hybrid common cycle? Modern already has Pit Fight, so the R/G spell is most likely a Tail Slash variant.

    Yeah, I hate to join the naysayers but this is easily the worst of the Sword mega cycle, I just hope it stays that way. I don't want to be disappointed by this, considering we're also getting Sword of Truth and Justice, but compared to that very sword, this is disappointing. Frown

    Well, so much for Death and Chaos. Frown The BR Sword is Sinew and Steel. This also puts the kibosh on the "four horsemen" theory.

    Sinew and Steel??? Confused Death and Chaos would have sounded way cooler. Is Sinew and Steel even a phrase?

    According to Maro, not all five ally swords will be in MH1. Looks like this cycle will take 2-5 years to finish.

    Quote from 57messier ยป
    I think you are spot on with the Green White.

    One thing I've noticed though is two of the existing swords (War and Famine) follow the four horseman of the apocalypse. If this is to continue, it would leaves Pestilence and Death as the remaining horsemen.

    I could see Black Red being Chaos and Death, but that would then leave Black Blue to being Pestilence and something...


    Death and Chaos seems like a good choice for BR. Compliments Life and Liberty, too. Pestilence was originally Conquest, though. Sword of Control and Conquest? Plague and Pestilence?

    Originally, they were going to be named King Lothar and Queen Alexandrite, but as their builds wanted to be more aggressive to better synergize with their parents, I decided to try representing them during the war, when they still would be leading on the battlefield (well, Lothar would have been anyway, being the son of a barbarian chieftain; Darien strikes me as the kind of father who'd try to keep his daughter safe inside castle walls a la Disney Princess films). Of course, it is possible they did have other enemies to battle after they married and merged Kjeldor and Balduvia into New Argive.

    Lothar and Alexandrite are the son of Lovisa Coldeyes and daughter of Darien, King of Kjeldor, respectively. When they fell in love and married, the once-warring nations of Balduvia and Kjeldor were reunited into New Argive.

    Here, Lothar and Alexandrite are interpreted as a Partner With duo of legends, designed to synergize both with each other and their respective parents.

    Lothar Lovissason 4R
    Legendary Creature - Human Warrior
    Partner with Princess Alexandrite (When this creature enters the battlefield, target player may put Princess Alexandrite into their hand from their library, then shuffle.)
    Battle cry
    Whenever ~ attacks, attacking creatures gain double strike until end of turn.
    2/3

    Lovisa provides tribal benefits to Barbarians, Berserkers, and Warriors. For abilities, I liked the idea of both royals granting a keyword to attacking creatures whenever they attack. Lothar grants double strike, which is especially fierce with his mother's +2/+2 ability. And since both focus on aggro, I also added Battle Cry.

    Princess Alexandrite 3W
    Legendary Creature - Human Cleric
    Partner with Lothar Lovissason (When this creature enters the battlefield, target player may put Lothar Lovissason into their hand from their library, then shuffle.)
    Battle cry
    Whenever ~ attacks, attacking creatures gain lifelink until end of turn.
    2/3

    Darien creates Soldier tokens whenever you're dealt damage, so with Alexandrite I wanted some kind of lifegain ability that takes advantage of the tokens. I tried Soul Warden, Soulmender, and even Righteous Cause-esque effects, but I ended up using lifelink as part of the attacking-matters theme. Once Darien's Soldiers connect, you'll gain back the life you lost, and then some.

    Well, it's not like Stone Rain and Molten Rain aren't already in Modern. Go, three mana land destruction?

    White can take advantage of land disparity with cards like Land Tax and Knight of the White Orchid. Not to mention you can always cast Balance or one of its variants afterward. If you have the mana to overload this thing, you really don't need to worry about your opponents getting some ramp.

    Also consider Tunnel Ignus.
