I personally love the art. He's standing on a skyscraper, scouring Ravnica, and his face is saying, "What's happening to my home?" Besides, what's wrong with wind-blown hair for the most awesome of Planeswalkers? Much better than Jace, Anime Adept. He's not meant to look ferociously dark anymore, now that we know more about him since Beleren's and Mindsculptor's releases.

Awesome card, and definitely my favorite of all the Jaces printed so far; More effective than Beleren, not OP like Mindsculptor, and much better, accurate art than Memory Adept.

His +1 cripples swarm attackers. He's tapping each of their minds with a Fleeting Distraction so their attacks are less effective.
His -2 is great: A cheap price for just a slightly nerfed Fact or Fiction. Go with one option, or the other?
His -8 is my favorite of all Jace ultimates until now. Given the flavor of Magic, a Library is a Planeswalker's arsenal of spells. Beleren invaded and deleted 20 o... (see all)

@ Infamous Gemini
I'm mostly commenting to correct you on Liliana. Consider that a lot of the best decks in eternal formats run less than 16 creatures. Put a Tarmogoyf in front of her to prevent another creature sneaking through to kill her and she will become a soft lock. Hell, she's a soft lock as long as your opponent is in top deck mode, which will be the case when you run her alongside Thought seize in Modern and Hymn to Tourach in Legacy.

Good to see that Jace decided to get out of art and take up engineering instead.

Imagine this...
Blow up Jace to use his ultimate.
Search opponents deck for Armada Wurm / Avacyn / etc.
Search your own deck for another copy of Jace, Architect of Thought to replace the one you just blew up.
Put both into play.

The best part is you get to use another PW ability on the one you put into play, so his ability only cost -4, your up by your opponents biggest card, and you get to use two PW abilities in one turn.

Oh his other abilities are pretty nice too. This guy should not be underestimated.

Scry is coming in the next block. His second ability will be more utilized....

Jace Beleren, Architect.

Severely underrated right now. Defends himself and you with his +1, digs pretty damn well for you with -2, and uses your opponent's deck against him with his -8, as well as fishing out your biggest bomb. Realistically, there is absolutely no way this should be under 4/5 right now.

Not as contraversial as the other Jaces, I think. His -2 will probably see the most play, since Ponder is rotating. However, I hope WOTC will come out with blue planeswalkers that don't have Jace in them...

Crazy fun combo.
Jace, AoT + Doubling Season + Wheel of Sun and Moon. With Doubling Season in play, Jace comes out with 8 counters, use his ultimate, Wheel sends him to the bottom of your deck, get an opponet's non-land card and Jace, put Jace into play, wash rinse and repeat until the opponet's just left with lands.
Not the ebst combo ever, but hilarious to think about.

This card for me represents the iconic blue card that isn't broken. This card emulates a blue player's thoughts:

Step 1: Stall
Step 2: Increase hand size (in the form of my favorite way of drawing, i.e. Fact or Fiction)
Step 3: Do something really weird.
