Witchbane orb won't stop his last ability because it doesn't target anything. And even if it did, that ability would rather say "target library" and there is nothing in the game, as far as I know, that can protect your library from being targeted.

New art is nice and I doubt people dislike the quality of it. It just we used to see Jace differently. His face shape changed, hair color and style also changed. The only thing that proves him to be Jace is his outfit and those symbols on his face. And name of the card, obviously. It is first time when planeswalker is being changed that much. Otherwise, art is great.

I like this version as it's well balanced and not as specific as Memory Adept which is only really playable in mill. He could have been just a bit more powerful, considering the power level of the set (He is 4 turn drop and your opponent might already have 5/X and so on). On the other hand, altering his first ability even to give -2/-0 would make him almost ... (see all)

+1 Softens attackers and builds counters.
-2 Draw 1-2 cards, based on your choice. If you pull something great its guaranteed to be in your hand if you choose.
-8 Should win you the game.

I thought he was weak at first glance, but then I took a second to analyze his abilities. I am blown away by that art as well, cant imagine why someone wouldn't like it... Can you draw anything close to that???

@ TheKazu: Hilarious, I had a similar, yet completely different thought. It emulates the essence of a Johnny:

Step 1: Protect yourself until you can win off a combo
Step 2: Draw the best stuff for the combo
Step 3: Tutor and steal any final pieces for the combo, then go nuts

@PonchoGrande: his +1 says creatures your opponents control.

"Not as contraversial as the other Jaces, I think."

And yet he's rated the worst out of all of them.

@DiegoJordan: Whenever you play a card "without paying its Mana cost", any X in the mana cost is set to zero.

Well, they had to tone down Jace's general OPness, but they didn't have to castrate to poor guy.

Great card. Took the mana cost of Jace, the Mind Sculptor and splices it well with abilities that aren't broken as Hell. I'd like to emphasize the obvious nerfing of Fact or Fiction. They acknowledge that Jace needs to be good but not incredible. Well costed but not broken for the cost. They took Jace Beleren (well costed), Jace, Memory Adept (powerful) and the cost of Jace, the Mind Sculptor (just as a tribute to the undisputed king), and spliced them well.
But terrible art.
5/5 though.

R&D's secret checklist. Each set must contain one of the following:
|_| A mythic dragon that could be printed in any other set.
|_| A mythic angel that could be printed in any other set.
|_| Jace.

First pack of RtR.
Foil Jace sitting snug behind a Deathrite Shaman.
Made my day.

Also, running him in my Kraj edh. You can pull off an ultimate every turn with doubling season and Gilder Bairn.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
