Swans of Bryn Argoll Discussion

spuiopq on Kraum's MANly Combo-Control

Good job, 'brudder! Used to regard Kraum/Tymna pair as an inferior alternative to Thrasios/Tymna, but this deck, to some extent, changes my opinion.

One question, though. What do you think of an inclusion of Pestilence and/or Pyrohemia? A cmc of 4 is a pain, but they have potential of hosing creatures and synergy with Swans of Bryn Argoll might be the icing on the cake. Decent in a slower meta, perhaps?

Even though you would never need white mana to cast Swans of Bryn Argoll, it's color identity is still UW. Thus making it illegal technically. As the effect is actually very replacable, you should be looking to change it out for another card. Maybe Dictate of Kruphix or Humble Defector would be what you are looking for.

Ask your playgroup how they feel about you playing an illegal deck. Many EDH players take the rulings very lightly, both regarding the banlist and the deckbuilding rules. For example it's pretty normal to use cards that are either not legendary or not creatures as your commander. This is fine if everyone at the table agrees that it's fine, but hear your friends out before suddenly casting an illegal card.

LiM3D on Can I prevent Damage dealt ...

  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.
