Swans of Bryn Argoll Discussion

LiM3D on Can I prevent Damage dealt ...

6 days ago
  1. Let's say my Opponent attacks with Primeval Titan and I block with Swans of Bryn Argoll. I then cast Shining Shoal with X=6 targeting the Titan. Can I prevent the damage before my Opponent draws Cards? I say yes, because the source of the Damage is affected by Shining Shoal so it never came to damage that could be prevented.

  2. What if the Titan has double strike? Shining shoal says "the next X damage that a source of your choice would deal". Does this prevent first as well as normal strike damage if X is high enough?

  3. Can Shining Shoal "target" Progenitus with it's first ability, because it doesn't have the word target on it?

  4. Same Szenario as in 1. but I cast Divine Deflection with X=6. Which ability will prevent the damage? Divine Deflection or Swans of Bryn Argoll?

Treasure Hunt Swans of Bryn Argoll Seismic Assault

Goggles are way to slow, because the only target you have are the anger. But if you add swans, you turn anger into card advantage as well. Seismic is just a pure upgrade to molten. You don't have to worry about getting to three mana, because of how many lands you have.

Nice deck! +1. It looks like you've put some bright thinking into it!

A few tweaks might make it slightly more versatile: 1xBuried Ruin seems like it could be really useful. I like to run 1xGhost Quarter to slow down Tron decks, too. 1xReliquary Tower if Swans of Bryn Argoll draws tons of cards. Or since you're running lots of artifacts, maybe 1xSpellbook would be useful. Depending on how many artifacts you can maintain, Dispatch might be good enough to consider.

Might as well add some artifacts to the sideboard, too, no? Perhaps, Ratchet Bomb, Pithing Needle, or Elixir of Immortality. Everlasting Torment might be useful, too in some matchups.

I am personally not sure that Ragged Veins and Spiteful Shadows are better than Boros Reckoner. I might concede that they are better than Spitemare though. But a 3/3 body that can trade with pretty much any creature in modern is not too bad. The 3 toughness for 3 mana is kind of meh, but Lightning Bolt is not as heavily played as it used to be. It still dies to a revolted Fatal Push and of course Path to Exile -- but most things do. I think the big thing that separates Boros Reckoner from the enchantment options is that it can actually do things by itself. It is a usable card by itself and only gets better with set up; whereas those enchantments really do not do much unless you have set up.

That being said, I do like the idea. I, myself, have played a little bit with a version running for Swans of Bryn Argoll, and Nahiri, the Harbinger (along with Emrakul, the Aeons Torn as an alternate win that also combos well with Nahiri's Wrath). Pinging both Swans of Bryn Argoll and Boros Reckoner with a Pyroclasm or Volcanic Fallout to deal 4 dmg to an opposing creature, 2 dmg to all my opponent's other creatures, and then draw 2 cards is pretty nasty.

Lets see, the decks i play againat are:

  • Titan Scapeshift. The usual one you will find online with added blue for Gifts Ungiven and Cryptic Command

  • Goblins. This is the usual goblin decks you'll find. He uses Guttersnipe and tries to deal damage through Dragon Fodder and Krenko's Command while having in the goblin that creates goblin tokens equal to the amount you already have(forgot the name. I think its Krenko but not sure right now))

  • Eldrazi Tron. Uses Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger, Karn, and Ugin, the Spirit Dragon. The main removal thwy usw against me is All Is Dust. Have Thought-Knot and the usual in it. Think can find the deck by going to meta decks on MtgGoldfish.

  • U/R Gifts. Storm deck. No changes to them other than 1 deck having Empty the Warrens sideboard and the other running 1 or 2 main.

  • Seismic Swans. Uses Seismic Assault and Swans of Bryn Argoll

  • W/R Burn. I'm not sure what he used in the deck. One card was some shrine that puts counters on it when you play red spells or on upkeep, then can sac to deal dmg equal to the counters on it. Sorry for not knowing much about it, he's only played it once.

  • Cascade Living End. Uses any 3 cost cascade spells and Living End the rest is a bunch of cycle creatures.

  • U/W Prowess. Built around Elusive Spellfist and tries to buff him until victory.

I think i've named all the decks. If i missed any i'll post them later.
