Man, Jace is gonna have a hard time dealing with this 'un. A classic card reimagined and what a great card it is.

Also, digging all the snakes in Vraska's deck.

There was a time when this was the two-drop to beat, and its reprint in Jace vs. Vraska shows that even after seventeen years, it's still quite the force. Welcome back, Wall of Regenerating Snake.

Oh wow... here's a doozy.

Needless to say, any Jace player unfortunate enough to be sitting across from this thing is going to have a hard match. Having two power lets the Boa trade with a lot of Jace's smaller creatures, and the Regeneration ability is almost always going to be used effectively. Jace has no traditional killspells to use on the snake anyway, so you'll pretty much always know when to leave the mana open for regenerating.

On the fairer side of things, being a 2CMC creature makes the Boa vulnerable to all of Jace's counterspells, two of which will send it to the graveyard. (The other two will send it somewhere else to be recasted later on.)

Considering that Jace also has a good range of bounce spells, I've got a feeling that the Boa will spend a lot of time off the battlefield, but not much of it in... (see all)
