Call me crazy, but I think that Apprentice Necromancer has allowed Spellsword to be relatively competitive with other dual-colour classes. It kind of fixes Spellsword's draw problem with Karthspire and Merchant, while providing good board development. Plus, I find it very entertaining to play. This list is a little more specialized for aggro because I was running into a lot of it, but you could turn this into more of a Midgro list. This was the deck I used to climb to legend last season.

It has pretty good defense against aggro decks (despite low prophecies), because of Guards, Varen, and a low curve with bodies that tend to trade favourably. This deck's well-statted and sticky early-game threats (along with a Fervor to help them) provide a good aggro plan against control, and the draw provided by Apprentice et al. allows for you to not gas out too early (although it can still be a concern).

Flex Spots:

Odirniran Necromancer: It's really strong with Fervor (Odirniran > Apprentice > Karthspire = 10/10 stats across three bodies and is strong against Ice Storm). However, without Fervor on board, it is mostly just overpriced draw.

Bone Colossus: I'm using this as a finisher because of its synergy with Fervor (15 power on board), and I've had good success with it. It's partially weak to Ice Storm, and partially weak to hard removal, but isn't wiped out by either. Also, if only one of the minions survives, it allows a target for Dawnbreaker/Apostle.

Both of those cards are pretty reliant on Fervor tho, so if you're running into a lot of support removal or are gassing out too fast, you may consider putting in a pair of Moose instead.
