This card is a spectacularly useful card in a mill control deck. For that reason it must stop existing.

Fantastic card with niv mizzet, the firemind and consecrated spinx. 60 damage combo!

Theros gives us Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver. I see him/her and Jace together in a blue/black mill deck for at least as long as both are in standard.

In Limited, he has a hidden fourth ability: "Target player offers to go to the next game."

I got this in the first booster pack I ever had, but then I was a inexperienced "green" player and traded it off to my play group for a really good deck. Now I run Jace Architect of Thought because I think it's more useful for my play style.

This jace is good and balanced but I would have little use for him in any decks I currently run

You know what is interesting about Jace in STD?

Jace AOT gains advantage from Scry mechanic. (His -2 ability)
Jace Memory Adept, on the other hand, screws the opponent when they just Scry last turn by his first or second ability.

Great card though.

This card really shines in a control mirror matchup. Most of the time these matchup are slow so the mana is no problem. Typically players are sitting there trying to draw into one of the win conditions they have, and being able to draw an extra card each turn is huge in those situations. The second ability total screws with the other person's draw set-ups, if they have any, and can also be a win-con if the game is slow enough. The ultimate? If you can't win after drawing a third of your deck there is something wrong with you.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
