That's not the naming scheme works. Fire and Ice had a red and a blue ability, and also pro red and blue. This has a white name, so it should be hexproof from white

I see your point, but this isn't part of that cycle. This is a "mono white" version of the cycle and hates on white's enemies.

I'm pretty sure Dude knows about the Mask of Law and Grace as well as the Voices, Absolutes, Spheres, Disciples, and Knights of Law and Grace. I'd argue with him, but he's right that despite the fact that Law and Grace has more printings, people will more readily make direct comparisons to the swords, since they're the better known cards out of all the cycles.

I will say, though, that if this provided hexproof from white and a black/red ability on hitting, that it would be a far greater violation of flavor than what's going on now.

Maybe you could circumvent both the flavor and power level issues by making this not a sword? "Spear of Law and Grace" could more readily do its own thing, while the flavor nod to the Sword cycle is still apparent.

Reworked to be a bit more "swordy" but changed the naming to "Lance of..." to reflect that this isn't part of the "Sword of..." cycle.

Considering what black/red usually do and what green/blue do I look at Armor of Duty and Reason and immediately think "I'd prefer 'hexproof from black and from red' as well as 'can't be blocked by green and/or blue' over the reverse version that we have right now".
