    Dang this seems really good.

  • galen150

    Between this, the 1 cost black pirate, and the 2 cost that makes tokens, pirates has some nice potential. Throw in hostage taker and the 3 color legend and your choice of control, and you got a solid tempo deck I’d say

  • E.

    Wow calm down with those creature types Wotc O.O

  • Jude

    Oooh i like it .3. Excellent way to keep your guys protected from torments…also, wizard, wutuuuuup

    • galen150

      By torments, do you mean torment of hail fire? Because this card doesn’t stop it because torment of hailfire doesn’t target

  • Shagoth

    I hear in the next set there’s going to be a pirate zombie gremlin dinosaur homarid ninja which you tap to shuffle your deck and reveal the top card of your deck. If the card is more ridiculous than Siren Stormtamer, then you may cast it without paying its mana cost.

  • galen150

    Weird how it’s a siren, which in mythology and such are exclusively female, but the flavor text says “he’s”

    • Hedronal

      Male angels in this game too. Screw mythological gender norms.

      • Aurore

        Pretty sure it’s mainly because wizards wants to avoid certain connotations with sirens, the same way they don’t want to make succubi.

        • Hedronal

          Probably part of it, yep.

        • Dindu Nuffin

          Political correctness?

      • Shagoth

        Eh, I don’t mind them adding stuff to mythology. Otherwise it would be kind of boring. Granted sirens are supposed to seduce male pirates, and this thing is a male pirate, so I think they changed a bit much here.

        • Hedronal

          Nah lets just pretend it makes them also question their sexuality.

          For real though, In mythology female sailors were not a thing, but in Mtg they are. With also having male sirens, there’s generally something for everyone.

      • galen150

        in normal mythology, angels were both genders. like in christianity. sirens on the other hand, have always been exclusively female

        • the mad seer

          usually it wasn’t even specified which gender they were

          • Hedronal

            I do like the idea of the concept of gender not fitting them, whether or not that was the intention there.

        • Hedronal

          Hm. Show’s what I know, or rather one thing that I don’t. Either way, I repeat my previous statement about gender norms.

    • Happy The Cat

      well, they appear to be female, that doesn’t mean that they all are female.

  • Kevan Kramer

    A better Flying Men…..still not sure this card is worth it though.

  • Stef

    Sirens are supposed to lure sailors/pirates into their death. Being a Siren Pirate is paradoxial. Sirens are also magical creatures, so being a wizard as well is kinda redundant. Wth wotc?

    • Hedronal

      Learned more magic.

    • De’Elgathor

      Sirens are a species in Magic. Just because some don’t do what you’d expect doesn’t make them not sirens. And a wizard casts spells. Just being magical doesn’t mean spellcasting is something you can do.

      Mechanically, it’s a wizard because it has a wizard effect (interacting with spells), “bird wizard” doesn’t fit the format so it’s a siren (merfolk don’t fly, usually), and it’s a pirate so it can play with one of the tribal themes in the set (which are vampires, dinosaurs, merfolk, and pirates).

      • Stef

        Well I guess that’s the beauty of creating your own lore. Anything goes. Although wotc didn’t invent sirens, so they are pushing it in terms of using classic fantasy creatures as crossbreeds in their lore. Obviously if you don’t have an affinity towards these these things it doesn’t really matter. Personally I think the creature type on this card might as well have been created by a random roll. It makes as much sense to me as a dog-cat or a chicken-fox. Making tribal work in limited is the true reason wotc are making cards with this many creature types, not for lore reasons.

  • Happy The Cat

    That’s way better than Judge’s Familiar, not strictly better since you have to pay mana for it, but there’s very few instances where this isn’t better.

    • Mark Pilzer

      Familiar isn’t restricted to what you target. Familiar can hit serum visions and interrupt storm

  • Chris Tomsky

    This seems like its gonna be awesome for control decks! Way better than Judge’s Familiar

  • Lucien Wächter

    If this was an merfolk it could replace cursecatcher.

  • Alex

    Yessss, yessss. More 1/1 flyers for 1 to add to Edric.

  • Edward

    This is a great 1 drop for Pirates. It is cheap, has evasion, and can be used later to protect your Pirates from removal. Really we just need a 1 or 2 drop with haste and Pirates should be good on the lower mana curve creatures.

  • Derek Niles

    For starters, Siren Pirate Wizards is now the name of my new metal band. Secondly this card is incredible

  • Robert FakeLastName

    interesting for azami

  • MrAptronym

    Time to begin my push for Siren tribal.

  • Stef

    I seriously doubt it. I mean, did you read your own post? Generic 17 y old with an overly inflated ego trolling on the internet with an overused cliché of a comment. Feel unique? The internet is saturated with your type. You probably wanna try something else if you are trying to be the cool kid. Get over yourself, you are nobody. ;-) Thanks for the insight though.
