Top 33 Movie Sword Fighters

I put this list together in like 2 minutes - so if they are out of order then they probably are.

33. Sir Knolte - Black Knight
A little out of his prime, and drunk.

32. Alexander The Great
Decent fighter. Held his own in lots of battles.

31. The Prince of Persia
He did need a redo to win the day.

30. Yu Shu Lien - Crouching Tiger
Crazy law of physics-less moves.

29. Theseus - Immortals
Born of Zeus or Poseidon - you are a good fighter.

28. Robin Hood
Destroyed the sheriff in one movie. Took out Sir Guy in another. And lead his own battle in a third.

27. Batman
Does lots of things well - including sword fighting though he doesn't display this after movie 1.

26. Nathan Algren - The Last Samurai
Probably trained too late to be truly great.

25. Athos - The 3 Musketeers
Probably the best fighter of the four. Doesn't have the drawbacks - seems to have more power.

24. James Bond
Master of all weapons though hand to hand not his specialty.

23. Bowen - Dragonheart
He took a dragon to the limit - nuff said.

22. Balian de Ibelin - Kingdom of Heaven
Classic knight - won many a battle.
21. William Turner - Pirates of the Caribbean
Not sure why I think this version of Orlando Bloom is a better fighter, but seemed to do more.

20. Blade
Single-handedly keeps the vampire population under control.

19. Connon MacLeod - The Highlander
Being immortal gives you perks but still held his own against other immortals.

18. William Wallace - Braveheart
Great fighter but not almighty.

17. Neo - The Matrix
Moving faster doesn't necessarily make you a better sword fighter. But still awesome.

16. Darth Sideous - Star Wars
Took out 4 jedi in like 3 mintues. Even had the advantage against Yoda.

15. Sir Lancelot
Every version of him is basically dominating.

14. Xena Warrior Princess
Rarely on the downside of any fight.

13. Mad Martigan - Willow
Killed the opposing general as well as the hydra all while being a nincompoop.

12. Zorro
Greatest swashbuckler.

11. Dread Pirate Roberts - Princess Bride
Basically Zorro but with more arrogance.

10. The Count of Monte Cristo
Didn't have anything to do in prison except swordplay.

9. Perseus - Clash of the Titans
Took out Ares, Medusa, the Kracken, some scorpions and some other demons.

8. John Preston - Equilibrium
Very Neo like in that he just moves so quick.

7. Conan The Barbarian
Like Xena - never in any real danger in a fight - just too busy keeping his friends alive.

6. Hero
Everyone in this movie - like House of Flying Daggers or Crouching Tiger defies gravity.

5. Maximus - Gladiator
Hasn't killed anyone who didn't deserve it. Everyone deserved it.

4. King Leonidas - 300
More of a spear guy, but there are few people you would rather have on your team.

3. Achilles - Troy
Probably on par with Theseus, but was much nastier.

2. Aragorn - Lord of the Rings
Slaughterer of all orcs everywhere.

1. The Bride - Kill Bill
Killed the entire viper gang as well as the entire Yakuza gang with little effort.

20. Vexing Devil

Giving an opponent a choice is never a good idea. However I really feel like it's win win here in the aggressive deck. A 4/3 for one will almost always be worth a card. So the real question is - is it worth a card to deal 4 damage for a red? It's not quite Flame Slash good in a control deck, or as great top deck as Thunderous Wrath but better than Thunderbolt or Lava Axe.

19. Scute Mob

Not a true one drop. But by turn six hopefully you are going get a hydra-like insect that will quickly get insanely huge if not dealt with. My biggest issue is that it doesn't have trample. It's still a great costed creature that can do some work if unchecked. There are lots of ways to give it Trample in Green not named Rancor.

18. Dragonmaster Outcast

And yet another non-true one drop. If you can stay…

My Top 100 One Drop (CC) Creatures (100-81)

One drops are the least important thing in any draft or sealed pool. You shouldn't play them pretty much ever. They typically do little for you, don't fit random cards, or just suck. And why should they, you aren't expected to win the game by turn 1(not counting you Legacy). In constructed, it's a whole different ball game. You have these cheap cards that actually interact with other cards in your deck. Not only that - your selection is a lot wider and if you look deep enough, you can find cards that can really put the pressure on.

The number 100 just kind of worked out. There are approximately 600 one costed creatures, and I honestly only checked out about 400 of them - top half and the very bottom(maybe I trust The Gatherer too much, but I'm always open to suggestions!). I found 95 that I really liked just naturally. The other 5 are included as my bottom 5, but 100 of course just sounded better.
I could have forced myself to get 5 more, but there are essentially…

80. Phyrexian Dreadnought

Illusionary Mask combo aside, a 12/12 Trample for one is certainly an interesting idea. At some point in the game you will have some 1/1s or even 2/2s that you don't need, maybe something get's Pacifism'd. Then you have a real card capable of becoming the largest threat on the board that will end the game in two turns unless dealt with. It does have quite the possibility of ruining your entire game plan if it gets Doom Blade'd or something. There are other ways to abuse it - Torpor Orb, Pandemonium, Fling.

79. Kor Duelist

Requiring equipment for it to be useful is a drawback, but for one mana you get the possibility of a double striking monster. Even if you could give it +2/+0 or heck Loxodon Warhammer then you get a fantastic deal for a single mana. Put it in a deck with the Swords and just go to town. A turn two Bonesplitter will hit for six.

78. Scattershot Archer

Repeated Bitterblossom kill. It is…
