UR Swans 1st Place PPTQ Report

Hello Internet,
This is my first PPTQ win and first tournament write up so I apologize if it’s a bit long winded. I played UR Swans at a 68 man PPTQ in Concord, CA last Sunday. It’s basically a Blue Moon deck with Swans of Bryn Argoll as the win condition. Playing tons of basics goes hand in hand with a Blood Moon strategy and you get to play snow basics together with Skred to either kill creatures much larger than a typical UR deck could handle, or draw tons of cards by pointing it at your Swan. You also get to play Stubborn Denial to counter early spells and protect your Swans from removal or enemy burn spells. Here’s the list:
