Siren's Ruse


Exile target creature you control, then return that card to the battlefield under its owner's control. If a Pirate was exiled this way, draw a card.

I liked Expose to Daylight for the artifact destruction. We have a decent amount of artifacts in our meta. Maybe bouncing the creature is enough? Equipment giving shroud is still difficult to deal with.

I’m going to pair down the flicker effects. Siren's Ruse is one that I can capitalize on the least.

I'd drop Expose to Daylight and Siren's Ruse - this deck likes its permanents, and those particular instants aren't really better than the ETB effects you have.

I have been UB pirates on Arena the last few weeks and I seriously consider Curious Obsession one of the best cards in it. Also Siren's Ruse as a mean to re-enter Hostage Taker in longer games has turned the tide many a times. I'd personally run CO over Treasure Map  Flip as a card advantage.

Since you run so many ETB effects, consider Siren's Ruse ?

Hi Quadsimotto, thanks for commenting.

From the top... Yes, if you can flicker Hostage Taker , it can be great fun. I did, however find the Siren's Ruse / Hostage Taker combo to be rather slow and dropped those cards from later versions of this deck. Artful Takedown promises a lot, but you often have less than 4 mana available when you want to play it. When it comes off, it works well. I haven't even looked at Mass Manipulation , with 6, 8, 10 cmc, it really scares me. Mnemonic Betrayal is a strong side-board card, but it really only becomes playable fairly late in the game. My latest incarnation of this deck is Aggro Thief

I'm working on a Kaho deck myself right now (still WIP), and I was looking through other Kaho decks on the site. Here's some recommendations:

  • Chain Stasis . I swear, this little doozy from homelands was *exactly* what I was looking for. You can put this in a Kaho pile, and for 4 mana you can put 2 spells on the stack that both read "untap Kaho". What this means is that without any outside help, no TYE, no Minamo, you can cast 2 distinct spells off Kaho. The permanents do this job better, but Chain Stasis can be tutored as part of a Kaho pile.
  • Nexus of Fate . If you don't want to run it due to price, that's fair. But I can't understate how well this card goes with Kaho. It feels like it was designed for her. You're already running the TYE, just that and Kaho let you infinitely loop Nexus.
  • Siren's Ruse and Stream of Consciousness . The former is a nice cheap bounce spell. The latter doesn't seem that great, but its cheap and if it shuffle another graveyard-shuffle effect then its done its job.

Here's a link to my "deck" right now, I'd appreciate if you'd look over what's there so far.

Another janky and extremely unique combo:

This ain't an easy combo to set up as there're many pieces we need to assemble, but if you pull it off, it's really fun and will surprise all your opponents! LOL
