Siren Lookout Discussion

Doritos1 thanks for the comment!

The river I will remove, my friend agrees, so that I will do.

The Favorable Winds as a playset I'm still thinking about. What should I remove do you think?

Also, I was thinking of removing Storm Fleet Aerialist for Siren Lookout. What do you think?

My pleasure. I like your changes. A few more thoughts:

1) With 14 creatures, I'd get rid of Shapers' Sanctuary. If you're looking for a 1 drop, I'd go with Siren Stormtamer. It also gives you the ability to protect your fish. Alternatively, I'd recommend Blossoming Defense to protect against removal.

2) Also, I would drop Desert of the Mindful and Desert of the Indomitable in favor of the corresponding basic lands. You already have 8 desserts without them, and they slow do your turn since they come into play tapped.

3) I would consider dropping Haze of Pollen for Blossoming Defense or Dive Down (Hexproof) or Siren's Ruse (Flicker and can be used to untap Champion of Rhonas).

4) I don't think Storm Fleet Aerialist fits well here. Channeler Initiate is your preferred 2 drop, and based on your creature based, you probably won't attack until Champion of Rhonas lands on the field; so raid won't trigger for Storm Fleet Aerialist. I would recommend Vizier of Tumbling Sands (untap Champion of Rhonas after exert); Watertrap Weaver (control/utility); or Siren Lookout (explore trigger to get through your deck).

How exactly are you gonna move Cultivator of Blades and Samut, Voice of Dissent to graveyard? I see only several options:

3x Shipwreck Looter – only once during ETB trigger
3x Siren Lookout – only once during ETB trigger
1x Pull from Tomorrow – the only more or less consistent way IMHO
2x Chart A Course – consistent one but conditional

Are you planning to bring more options or you only treat this combo as backup wincon?

theindigoeffect on Any Mass Creature Pump Spells ...

I knew that Admiral Beckett Brass would be challenging to build around, but because there are so few pirates and because many of them do not share a creature type, cards like Shared Animosity, Coat of Arms, Kindred Charge and Door of Destinies just aren't as powerful. This type of deck also mitigates the utility of mass recursion cards like Patriarch's Bidding.

Granted, many of the pirates are human, so I could possibly build a deck based around that creature type, but because evasion is such a crucial part of my strategy, I would have to cut cards like Siren Stormtamer Dreamcaller Siren and Siren Lookout.

Are there any mass creature pump spells that would work with creatures of different types? I don't really know of any in Grixis.

I typoed above.

This is what I meant to say:

"Siren Lookout is even worse value. Another 1/2 Flier that MIGHT get you card draw ONCE, and costs MORE."

Please link cards like this in future, so I can more easily see what you are saying.

Storm Fleet Aerialist


I don't need another 1/2 Flier in the 2 drop slot.

Kitesail Freebooter is weak as it is, the only advantage being that it can grab a card on the way in.

Siren Lookout is even worse value. Another 1/2 Flier that MIGHT get you card draw ONCE, and costs ?

No thanks.

There is no way in HELL that I would waste Siren's Ruse on flickering it, when I get so much value when using it to flicker Hostage Taker, or Dreamcaller Siren.

It's VERY sad that you can't see the value of Desperate Castaways, which has strengthened the deck so much.

Terrific for early defense, and the extra copy of Aethersphere Harvester sees it ready to attack on Turn 3, most of the time.


I'm going to ask you to hold off Commenting on this deck for a while.

In the past couple of days you've made FIVE Comments, which is a lot, and you seem to be ignoring the reasons I've given in the Description for my card choices.

My partner StuBi and I have been playtesting this deck irl and it's working very well.

That's a very different situation than playtesing against oneself.

You know whats interesting? You use Storm Fleet Aerialist and if you replace Ruin Raider with Siren Lookout (which is a card draw in it's self with explore and uses Siren's Ruse to do it again) Aside from Hostage taker, you basically have all fliers even with the artifacts... It makes me want to recommend fitting Favorable Winds in this deck at that point... Just a thought.

Cool budget idea, qqjoshwah.

There's some potential synergy with Skyship Plunderer and the +1 mechanics from Siren Lookout. Could work with Storm Fleet Aerialist as well, but not as smoothly.
