I play a similar deck. In my deck I use Molten Vortex , Elixir of Immortality . Molten is used incase I get pithing needled. And elixir is to reup my library. You can also put Swans of Bryn Argoll

That was the first deck I made back in 99. I've always been a fan of tax assault.

God this looks way too much like Seismic Swans lol. ( Swans of Bryn Argoll and Seismic Assault w/ lots of lands)

Damn that's a long maybe list. Trim out the stuff you are sure you don't want for readability or hide the list. I think you've realized it already, but putting a bunch of good stuff niche combos in here like Saheeli cat doesn't make sense with Sevinne. You need to go all-in on the Sevinne plan. To that end, 100% add

- Swans of Bryn Argoll - Sphinx's Revelation - Soulfire Grand Master - Waves of Aggression - Repercussion - maybe Coalhauler Swine


- Gateway Plaza - Guildmages' Forum - Path of Ancestry - Rupture Spire - Transguild Promenade - Evolving Wilds - Terramorphic Expanse

and replace with lands that don't ETB tapped. You don't need the tempo loss from the slow basic fetches with all the dual-type lands in this deck. Play a basic in the spot of each of those and then pick up the filter lands to replace the slow sac lands, namely:

- Rugged Prairie - Mystic Gate - Cascade Bluffs

For the last two lands slots if you want to stay at 37, I'd recommend Geier Reach Sanitarium for this deck since it lets you discard a card into your yard for Sevinne's second ability, and Emergence Zone for that surprise factor.

I managed to hold off a Splinter Twin on a Ulamog's Crusher with my Swans of Bryn Argoll until my opponent was forced to deck themself.

Apologies ShaperSavant, I didn't see your message and haven't had much time with this list in particular, though tried to budget it.

Cutting the good lands and wheels just makes it really bad-kinda? I can't say I like it much xD.

I have been testing a combo that could work with this list's main wincon of Lab-Man, and have decided on Swans of Bryn Argoll with Chain of Plasma , old combo, but easy enough to piece together, and efficient overall.

You might be able to brew up something spicy with Kindle the Carnage, Swans of Bryn Argoll, and Stuffy Doll or something jank like that. It might not be good... but it's certainly hard to interact with, and its better than nothing.

Alos, Swans of Bryn Argoll is a terrible card. Not only does it suck, it makes no sense you are running it in a hunt deck. My deck list would be 52 lands, 4 Seismic Assaults and 4 Treasure Hunts. That's it.
