@ragamander Screw Spellbook. Go Venser's Journal.
Also, in a hand builder deck, discard him then Victimize some poor creature. ta-da, and flavorful.

Ah, Jinny Jin!

As a reanimator player this card is an unbelievable win condition and I try to get him out asap. It's one of those things that will make a person just give up.

I want to run him in standard some how either with, you guessed it, unburial rights or with somberwald sage. Anything to get him out early! Jinny's ability is just so good.

If you wanted to play single-player, you should have just said so.

Such a good card. Yes, it feasibly requires either ramp or cheating - probably cheating - but he's more or less a one-turn clock. Sure, in terms of combat he's a 4 turn clock, but if he sticks for a turn cycle, you've got at least +7 CA off him, and your opponent is in top deck mode.

What does that mean?

As long as you can control the board state and get a counterspell out of those 8 drawn cards you get a turn (or, y'know, recycle your used ones somehow), your opponent isn't going to get any spell through unless it has a can't be countered clause.

My most recent Jin foray has been in a UG 'reanimator' deck thanks to Body Double. Get him out on turn 4 usually thanks to Hierarch ramp and Fauna Shaman finding and pitching him, then if he survives a turn, that's usually game. Between Cryptic Command, Eternal Witness, Progenitor Mimic and Counterspell, it's a pretty solid lock against most decks.

And yes, like many people just in case I find myself in a match I'm forced to grind out, I'... (see all)

I think he has a minor case of scoliosis...

His posture, and lanky appendages. He's clearly a Muscle Sliver that's survived for far too long!

I think the flash is a formality; if you pass the turn with 10 mana open your opponent might think something's up...
