Can I prevent Damage dealt to Swans of Bryn Argoll before it's prevented by it's own ability?

Asked by LiM3D 5 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?

yes, yes, yes, and you choose. When one or more replacement effects happen, they are applied in the order of the controller of the permanent.
