Will-o-the-wisps have Immunity to Magic. The Slumber witch hex is a supernatural ability. Can a witch put a Will-o-the-Wisp to sleep?

My guess is yes even though it seems kind of silly.

  • \$\begingroup\$ The special ability "Immunity to Magic" is clarified later in the statblock for the creature. It is not blanket immunity to all magic, but rather specific spells. \$\endgroup\$

The wisp is not immune

Their immunity ability has the following text:

Will-o'-wisps are immune to all spells and spell-like abilities that allow spell resistance, except magic missile and maze.

Slumber is a supernatural ability. Supernatural abilities are neither spells nor spell-likes, and don't allow spell resistance. They meet none of the criteria that an ability needs to meet for wisps to be immune.
