Take your standard magician, add Blades 4, toss in a Weapon Focus, stir until mixed.

I would also suggest adding in a sustaining focus and a elemental aura spell on the mage.

It has downsides but can be pretty fun.

Could go the route of a mystic adept and use adept powers to help supplement the sword powers.

I concur. This is the best option for a Sword mage.

Standard magician is too limiting on bladework
Standard PhysAd doesn't have the elemental flare options with melee weapons.

Yep, Mystic Adept is the way to go....

I also concur.  PhysAds give you many more options as a melee fighter.  Focus your spells to augment your melee abilities as well. 
Some people call me crazy...  Maybe they are right.
