ScaryHairyBear on Best Deck In Modern. Not Gonna Lie. (44 Lands)

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.

I get that this is a theme/gimmick deck but now that I think about it, Desert plays nicely with both Boros Reckoner and Swans of Bryn Argoll

Pariah is traditional. I've always preferred to rush a Wildfire, as most decks just can't recover from the land destruction, making the rest of the beatdown pretty simple.

Its also worth looking at fight effects- Guild Feud is usually game ending if you build around it, and splashing green for Domri Rade and Prey Upon sets up a very threatening pseudo-burn.

Its also worth looking at Seismic Assault/Swans of Bryn Argoll. Its the classic reckoner counterpart.

Turns out that Shelldock Isle was just too slow.

Testing out Underground River to be faster, or Grier Reach Sanitarium to increase the draw.

Also, it seems that the deck just wasn't ramping fast enough, so were removing Swans of Bryn Argoll for Leaden Myr and Jace's Erasure for Talisman of Dominance.

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.
