Cascade Swans in Modern – Journey to Somewhere Video Article with Ben Heath

Journey to Somewhere – Developing Tempered Steel by Ben Heath

Hello everyone and welcome to what is a first for me, a video article!

I decided to invest in an affordable Modern deck on Magic: the Gathering Online, since the Modern PTQ season is coming up, and this was the result. After a successful daily and some 2-man wins (and, admittedly, the odd 2-man loss) I decided to make a video article of the deck, as I believe it has the potential to be a sleeper hit. After some tweaking (mainly with the sideboard), I electronically sleeved up this seventy-six (no, that is not a typo).

Creature [9]

4 [card]Bloodbraid Elf[/card]
4 [card]Swans of Bryn Argoll[/card]
1 [card]Emrakul, the Aeons Torn[/card]

Spells [12]

4 [card]Treasure Hunt[/card]
4 [card]Seismic Assault[/card]
4 [card]Captured Sunlight[/card]

Lands [40]

3 [card]Tectonic Edge[/card]
3 [card]Halimar Depths[/card]
2 [card]Dakmor Salvage[/card]
4 [card]Karplusan Forest[/card]
4 [card]Cascade Bluffs[/card]
4 [card]Vivid Crag[/card]
4 [card]Vivid Creek[/card]
4 [card]Tendo Ice Bridge[/card]
4 [card]Gemstone Mine[/card]
4 [card]Reflecting Pool[/card]
4 [card]City of Brass[/card]

Sideboard.

4 [card]Leyline of Sanctity[/card]
3 [card]Naturalize[/card]
2 [card]Dismember[/card]
3 [card]Lightning Bolt[/card]
3 [card]Volcanic Fallout[/card]

Have a look below to watch some good play, and some more epic misplay from both sides of the board (which is what some of you have come to expect from me!).

The commentary and coverage is done post-tournament, because if I were to submit the videos I recorded during the tournament, they would be probably be rated 18… (also please note there are 11 videos on this playlist, so watch them all!)


Thanks for sharing
