I'd wager she weighs as much as a duck as well and is certainly made of wood--in other words, she's a witch.
BURN HER!!!! :mad1:

Quote from iron_maiden_2U guys can go ahead and keep thinking swans r bad until it becomes a format defining cards and spawns a couple news decks and you all forget that a 4/3 flyer for 4 is a 5 turn clock for white and blue and is really hard to kill
Quote from RanDominoIt's not just about whether or not the creature can be killed, but whether or not it can be killed efficiently. Chameleon Colossus is good because only Oblivion Ring and Deathtouch creatures can 1-for-1 it.
no one plays Crib Swap
no one plays Lightning Axe
Quote from RanDominoThis is a good example of the thinking that leads people to think Swans are good. With another card, sure, they can be good. But what if you only draw the other card (which, like Seismic Assault and Fatal Attraction, is probably unplayable on its own) and not the Swans, or the Swans and not the other card? Instant Lose. Just play a good deck with good cards.
I just realized that I should actually be playing up the Swans so that I can dump them quick when their price is inflated, so I'll be leaving now. They're actually great, format-defining even, so I won't let them go for less than a Tarmagoyf a piece, because they're worth it. Really.
Quote from ShuukBecause this + Chain of Plasma in Extended lets you draw your deck?
Quote from JpapayaI read this and thought it was an amazing combo that someone had totally overlooked, then realized that swans prevents the damage, so you never get the chance to hit it with plasma more than once.:-/
Quote from AzerbaijanIt doesn't matter that the damage is prevented. The creature is still "that creature," and its controller still gets the option to discard & copy. Seems to work to me.
Quote from ZetaZetaBecause we all know Rite of Flame and Seething Song are great topdecks and Telling Time was a tier 1 card on its own, along with sleight of hand.
Quote from aceofspades4289Try and win with a 4/3 flyer. I dare you
Quote from aceofspades4289Sorry but this combo is still horrible. Good luck getting the mana for Seismic Assault and Swans. You'll have fun doing that I'm sure.
Mogg Fanatic is good cause it gets sacked to deal 1 damage. Tarmogoyf is good ccause its an efficient beater for two mana
Swans on the other hand are a key to a really bad combo deck that can't go off before turn 4. And that's on the good draw. And without the swans the deck is nigh pointless.
Go ahead and lay your swans down on turn 4. Faerie decks will counter it and then do the last points of damage on turn 5. Aggro will beat you down before you can go off. Dragonstorm was a good combo deck. This, on the other hand, sucks. Period
And also the reason D-storm was good was because it went off consistently early. And if it didn't it had a Plan B aka play Hellkite. What does this deck do besides play Seismic or Swans? Try and win with a 4/3 flyer. I dare you
Quote from Eliminator...it doesn't even die to EVERY black removal (Tendrils of Corruption/Corrupt/Consume Spirit...
Quote from ArcanePieSwans is not BAD, but it sure as heck isn't format defining. It's a 4/3 for FOUR MANA. There's alot of competition at the 4 mana slot in both blue and white. Yes it's an evasive beater, yes it's a resistant one at that, but the fact of the matter is it still isn't THAT powerful. Yes it has combo potential and card draw written all over it (literally), but your opponent can benefit too. I see this card being best in a Red/Blue burn and control deck as a finisher. That way you get to pick and choose how the card is used, while maintaining a threat that hurts every turn while filling up your hand.
Quote from aceofspades4289Reveillark has an amazing ability attached to it that really doesn't compare to Swans'.
Quote from BweeBwee
Understand, Dredge is not really a Magic: The Gathering deck. When a card is playable in it, it doesn't mean it's a tournament playable card. It means it's playable in whatever crazy fantasy world that Dredge operates in.
Quote from PhyreMyndWithout Pariah, no creature dies to Corrupt.
