I am running Debian Stretch, and like to change to Sid.
Can I just change my sources.list to unstable and upgrade?

Yes, although I'd do a dist-upgrade (or full-upgrade if using aptitude).
Based on some earlier problems with Stretch and the discussions around

dump stuff into Stretch without anyone actually checking to see that it
can work with other Stretch libraries.
