Class Overview

Swordcraft is a highly follower based classed that uses the [Commander] and [Officer] traits. The traits themselves have no actual abilities but they are not without use. Commanders and officers support each other making this a very synergistic class!

Class Staples
CardCost
Veteran Lancer Unevolved Veteran Lancer 2

Veteran Lancer is a 2/2 Ward. This is almost unheard of in shadowverse as this card has been known to thwart many aggro decks from their gameplan of our rushing sword. It is very capable of trading when it needs to and hitting your opponent in the face for 2 is nothing to scoff at!

"Sky knights! Prepare for battle!"

Quite possibly one of the most feared followers in the entire game. Albert is a card that is capable of stealing a game away from your opponent in the blink of an eye. With him having storm, when he comes out, he is hitting your opponent in the face Immediately.

His enhance effect makes him even deadlier because with an evolution point, he can deal 10 damage to your face because he is capable of attacking twice! Albert is almost a must include in every single sword list!

CardCost
Quickblader Unevolved Quickblader 1

The only card of its type, Quickblader can immediately come out and attack your opponent the turn he is played. And since he is 1 PP, he is very good at getting damage in fast and early. He can even make going second more desirable than going first because you will get to get your damage in on your opponent first!

Quite possibly the most important sword card next to Albert. Not only does he have a built in rush effect, but he also has an enhance effect of allowing him to leave 2 1/1 followers behind when he dies. Jeno is a very high value card that should find its way into the majority of sword decks.

Deck Archetypes:

Midrange Swordcraft is very similar to Aggro Swordcraft but has some glaring differences. Midrange Swordcraft focuses less on the Officer / Commander synergy and more on strong followers that can hit the opponent very hard. 

Ever wanted to build the biggest wall of Wards that you could? Control Sword replaces its highly aggressive strategy with a massive wall of Wards that make it difficult for your opponent do damage to you. While behind your massive wall, you build your strength so you can finish your opponent off with hard and heavy strikes!

Aggro Sword (or Face Sword for short) is a deck that is completely dedicated to hitting your opponent leader hard and fast! It uses its abilities to pump up your weaker followers so that they can spread around damage making it difficult for your opponent to remove a single threat! This variation of Swordcraft is potentially one of the fastest decks in the game!
