I like this Jace. He seems balanced but has great potentional. It is gladly not another mind sculptor That he starts with 4 loyality counters is also really nice. I like that. Going up to 5 makes him hard to take down in 1 go.

I traded the one I got at the prerelease for a Vraska before his value shot up. :(

Fortunately, I opened another in my prize pool. I'm a lucky bastard.

And that's four Jaces. Just think, only 11 more and Wizards will finally be able to release "From the Vault: Jace!" - the first "From the Vault" set to consist entirely of planeswalkers, all with the subtype of "Jace."

You know I wouldn't want to be that guy that tears a card down to its bones...but I don't see why this card is great.

Assuming you will never play its ultimate ability in a competitive game, it's +1 is basically a weaker Cumber Stone and its -2 is basically "draw one card and it will be the worst of the 3 that was on top of your deck".

And while we're on the topic of planeswalkers I'd go so far as to reduce Liliana of the Veil down to a 3 mana Eddict and a chump blocker with 1 toughness (after its -2 ability)

Someone enlighten me.

I don't understand why everyone is so adverse to Jace when its been almost 3 years since he's been part of a block. Really, the first 5 walker have all hit 3 versions and a 4th was only a matter of time. We also have 2 other mono blue walkers that aren't Jace too, so I don't get that complaint either. Also, complaining about him being mono blue in a gold set is like complaining that we had mono colored walkers in Shards. Has the ONE stupid version of Jace hurt people so much that they not just get sick whenever they see a new copy? I just don't get it.

Anyway, the card itself is fine. Your opponent has some control over the -2 so it will never be back breaking and the +1 is only really good against token decks. His -8 will hardly ever be relevant.

Multiplayer Jace! I wish his primary ability was a little stronger, but that's my only real complaint. And to people that are complaining that he seems more peaceful-looking, that's because he came to Ravnica to relax. Completely serious here.

I like the "dig in" skill-set this card provides and the ultimate is a nice, poetic game ender. I still can't get over his doofy face though. He looks like a football quarterback, not a mind mage.

The problem with the last two Jaces:

His hood is down. Why is his hood down. If you give a character a badass cape/cloak, you keep the hood up. Do you see the Nazgul taking their hoods down? Do you see Darth Sidious taking his hood down? Did that work out for him? Do you want people to remember Jace as "Anakin Skywalker" or "Darth Vader, Episode III"?

OK, so maybe Mind Sculptor was TOO MUCH like "Darth Vader" or a "Nazgul" and that was considered a problem. I can tolerate that view. But excuse me. How about a good guy example.

BATMAN. Does Bruce Wayne EVER wear the batsuit without the hood up?! I've only see it happen maybe once, at the end of the Mask of the Phantasm movie. Hoods, Cloaks, Capes, Cowls, what have you...are supposed to stay up. I liked Jace better when it looked like his skin might actually be blue or made of rock in Beleren's pic, because it was just so hidden and left unknown and another person might have seen a complet... (see all)

I love how people were all like, "Nope, garbrage bro". Then, a deck using Jace wins at a pro tourney, and they're all like, "Amazing card, 5/5 bro, I knew it all along", and then the price jumps like 20 bucks...

God, I'm cynical :/


They immediately label whatever isn't game-breaking as trash, and they're also the first to complain when something is too powerful.

We need a plague... But like, just for stupid people.

Started out at $25, dropped to $15 a week before prerelease. Was hoping I'd be able to trade into a playset at $12 or so before people realized that digging you 6 cards turn 5 is good. Stupid Star City Games for figuring out he's damn solid and telling everyone. Back up to $30...

Fun times running this guy with Tamiyo, the Moon Sage. The obvious thing would be to turn 4 Jace turn 5 Tamiyo, but better than that seems to be turn 5 Tamiyo, turn 6 Jace. You've tapped their biggest guys down, all their little guys get -1/-0, Tamiyo is rolling up, Jace is rolling up, and if they swing their shrunken guys into your board, you have Cyclonic Rift or Azorius Charm mana to remove their second-biggest threat, Tamiyo draws you a bunch of cards, and Jace gets to work going through your library. Or you roll them both up again and repeat until your opponent tears their scalp off. That's value, folks.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
