Siren Stormtamer Discussion

Sweet list! Even focusing on a tribal theme, this deck feels much stronger than the average Marchesa list and looks to play better to her strengths. Some wizards I'd consider are Siren Stormtamer , Sage of Epityr , Goblin Flectomancer , Patron Wizard , and especially Spellseeker and Trinket Mage .

Still an impressive piece of work I see.
Next, what are your thoughts on the following (literally just your thoughts not saying you should make cuts for them):
Prying Blade as completely unnecessary ramp.
and last but not least, Time Stop . Because nothing is more oppressive than hearing "beginning of your turn, end the turn."

What are your thoughts regarding how you are no longer running Shrieking Drake in this build for Animar?
From my perspective, The drake isn't a strong card on its own but I have always found it a valuable option to have in Animar. In particular, it acts as a way to pump Animar without having to empty your hand and, since it returns itself to your hand, you can always keep it around as a way to refuel Animar in case it gets hit with removal. The drake's ability to act as a card draw engine with Beast Whisperer , even without Animar on the field, and the possibility it gives of getting double duty out of a card-draw or tutor creature are all things that I have found valuable in a number of different circumstances. Gearing the deck's mana base to provide consistent blue mana for Kiri also makes the drake that much more reliable for getting multiple casts in a turn early on.
I would be inclined to include Shrieking drake over cards like Loyal Drake , Siren Stormtamer , and probably even Crop Rotation but I'm interested in hearing about your experience with the card and how you weigh its value as an inclusion in Animar.

@ Old_Man: Hmm, I was hoping that Seal Away and Kinjalli's Sunwing would hold down the fort for aggro matchups, protected by Siren Stormtamer of course. But in the sideboard I also have counters to bring in as well as Lyra Dawnbringer . Do you have any suggestions for the aggro matchup?

i know its a casual deck but you have way too high of mana cost in everything, for one Dark Depths is not meant in this kind of deck if you dont have a way to cheat his counters or have the mana to take them out, as well as Sigil of the Empty Throne you dont have enough enchantments, might as well take them all out. Tempest Djinn, Angel of Jubilation, Yosei, the Morning Star, Exquisite Archangel, Goliath Sphinx, Ornithopter, Rustwing Falcon, Serra Ascendant, Azorius First-Wing, Resplendent Angel are either to expensive, you dont have a reliable source to use they'r abilities or are simply underwhelming. for lowering the mana cost i suggest Warden of Evos Isle. you can replace Serra Aviary for Favorable Winds, for counters Spellstutter Sprite, Nimble Obstructionist, Spell Queller,Siren Stormtamer and probably not very good if its not a fast pace deck (storm) Erayo, Soratami Ascendant. Hope of Ghirapur and Selfless Spirit are good protection, Vendilion Clique and Gilded Drake some good control. Palace Familiar, Owl Familiar net you some card draw and Illusory Angel, Sky Spirit seem ok. i didnt go in to much noncreature spells and i lck sleep so i hope i was helpful.

That’s true sam171z, in the first version of the deck I did run Perpetual Timepiece, but in like 20-25 games i never used it to reshuffle my grave, only for the mill part. After that I swapped it out for a Hedron Crab.
This deck works surprisingly well even without my graveyard. If I get like 10-20 cards removed early that’s usually fine since I don’t rely on combopieces to win, there are still some good chances to win. In the later game when my grave reaches 30-50 cards i have drawn, milled or tutored Siren Stormtamer to protect me from targeted graveremoval like Bojuka Bog etc. I can remember only like 2-3 games of like 250+ where removing my graveyard was the reason to lose the game.
If your meta is heavy on grave removal I would add some more protection like the timepiece, but for me in my meta it’s just fine and works well how it is.
