I was determined not to run blue this cycle for once, but when you open a fat pack with 2 Visions of Beyond, 2 Jace's Archivist, and a Jace, it would be a crime not to run blue.

Just because I haven't seen it written anywhere else yet in the comments...

I have a Blue/Green deck based around Splinterfright/Boneyard Wurm/Kessig Cagebreakers, with supporting cards such as Think Twice, Forbidden Alchemy, and Gnaw to the Bone (27 creatures, 60 cards).

If I can get this guy out on turn 5, mill myself for 10, and next turn, mill another 10... By the time I cast (or flashback) Gnaw to the Bone I'll almost certainly gain 20+ life, and it will also make my threats almost instantly lethal. Kessig will be lethal for sure, Splinterfright in 2 or MAYBE 3 turns, and Boneyard Wurm will at the very least cause them to chump block.

My friend also has a Blue/Red Burning Vengeance deck this could work very nicely with; with a deck themed around flashback, adding 10 cards to your graveyard is akin to drawing 10 cards... For 0 mana. With removal and counters he's fairly safe on the board and I think people are really underestimating his value. He might not be as strong... (see all)

First off, @Asmodi0000: That is my favorite gatherer comment ever!
I saw it around the time you first posted it and I still rememberd it to this day. Made even my non-MTG playing friends laugh.

Second: I would point out all the obvious combos this Jace can pull off, but everyone alredy said it.
I just love this Jace so much. Although, and I forget where I saw this first, Jace looks like he's steping out of a Pokemon game.

Third: If this trend continues the next version of Jace will cost {4} {U} {U}

Well, considering he wears that hood all the time, it makes sense that his hair gets like that after a while.

Un-set proposal card:

Jace's Hair Stylist
Whenever an opponent puts a card from their library into their graveyard, you may untap target permanent.

I see what you're trying to do, Jace.

Trying to get past that whole "most hated guy in the game" stigma, you've upped your cost and down played your abilities.

But I see right through you, Jace. Don't think for a second that I would EVER trust a blue planeswalker.

Well, there was that one time that you did save my life... And how you were the best man at my wedding... and how we've always been best frie-GET OUT OF MY HEAD.

No wonder he wears that hood all the time, it would be HELL to gel that every morning!

For some reason I get the impression that people saying his -0 is bad because it takes too long to mill your opponent to death are going to end up looking a lot like the people who said that Jace, the Mind Sculptor was a bad card because his -12 took too long to activate. (OK, probably not that bad, but in a similar vein.)

At this point, we have enough Innistrad spoilers to see the general themes. Flashback. Recursion. Cards that grow as your graveyard grows. Liliana of the Veil's +1 forcing everyone to discard. Garruk Relentless//Garruk, the Veil-Cursed having an Overrun that grows with your own graveyard (and a -1 that puts creatures there). Snapcaster Mage giving any instant or sorcery in you GY flashback (at it's original mana cost) until EOT. And Jace and his entire cycle can put cards into anyone's graveyard, as have all the milling cards we've seen from Innistr... (see all)

Jace Beleren: simple, non-flashy, and straightforward but solid and playable, a reflection of the fact that he's among the first of his card type.

Jace the Mindsculptor: Overpowered hyper competitive advantage machine. Cool idea gone wrong.

Jace, Memory Adept: more narrow in focus but imo the most fun of all three Jaces

Is the art really that bad? i kind of like anime so i wouldn't mind one or two anime styled art every once in a while, just so long as magic art still is magic art

Jace has ALWAYS looked like this, especially when seen in the comics. This is not a new design, it is just him without the hood.
