What a way to waste a great archetype with both a terrible card design as well as art. Just how does the effect relate to someone that plays music for a living? They could have just as well named this card "Accountant". Actually, that would have made more sense, if you think about it.

@DR Jack, "Just how does the effect relate to someone that plays music for a living?"
He's fascinating them. Sort of like the pied piper. If you don't keep prodding your guys to get in line, they'll just follow his siren-like song to their doom. He's not just a musician, he's a magician working through music. Other odd "wizard" professions include Scrivener and Anarchist.

Sure, passion is mostly red. Technique, control, and mesmerism are all blue though.

He destroys creatures by singing Call Me Maybe.

If he didn't have the cumluative upkeep, this might've been a decent card.

The flavor of this is all wrong, at least the color. Music is Red: the emotion, passion, and creativity are much more Red than the chill, logical processes of Blue. There's my rant.

What a fun idea.

I think what's important to note is:
- the counters stay (including their "pay 1 or sac" effect) even once the musician is gone
- musician works well with cards like exhaust to prevent people from paying their stuff
- you can tap the musician in response to the cumulative upkeep ability. So even if you choose to not pay the upkeek a single time, you can use the tap ability

Still a bad card. But fun. :)

This is not a bad card. Hex Parasite and Lightning Greaves and we going to the show.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
