Presenting you my first deck, with which I had great times conquering the ladder.

Historically one of the main problems of a Spellsword was keeping up in card count with other colours. However, IoM introduced a number of great additions to the game, like Thadon, Fork and my pet-favourite Duskfang. In combination with your typical big creatures, life gain and single or mass removal, this deck has a good balance of necessary tools against most of meta decks.

Few card decisions:
Shining saint is here because for the first part of the game we are aiming to control the board. It's also great synergy with greasy gourmet, execute and mechinar's will.
Speaking of, Mecinar's Will, in my opinion, is one of the best overlooked cards for current meta. Not only it can work as a 1 for 2 removal, but it also allow you to sneak in that bit of extra damage when needed or avoid typical low attack/high health guards.
Feasting Hunger showed itself as a great time saver against aggro decks.
Blood Pact Messenger more often than not will eat a hard removal, giving few mana difference in trading and allowing our artillery to live when their time comes.
Archein Venomtongue, although is not obligatory for this deck, is good against people traumatized by Rage Warrior, who will do anything to remove it off the board. Can be substituted by Falkreath Defiler

So far this deck proved to be surprisingly competitive, but I guess a big factor is a moment of surprise. Have fun!
