The "Everyone draws 20 cards" is probably worse to play in EDH, because that gives them all so many choices. Not only that, but most people I know play at least 1 "infinite hand size" card, like Reliquary Tower.

Even in EDH, I think people would rather just mill 10, most of the time when it's themselves (Why, hello there Mimeoplasm. How're you doin'?)

this loses to tamiyo? they arent meant to go against each other.. she gets her emblem and he makes you draw 10 for no loyalty change or draw 2 with a +1 to loyalty.

Thanks to the new guildmage, this will see play, and be dangerous, if not solely for the 0 ability!

Im currently working on a Mono blue permission deck, that focuses on counters and quick drawing/scrying, with a mill capability if needed, and guess what Mr. Jace, Memory Adept...YOUR IN!!!

I loved this card when it first came out and it makes me happy that (at least currently) it's more pricy than Jace Architect of Thought. This jace just blatantly wins games for mill decks, especially with duskmantle guild mage, while architect is just kind of mildly annoying.

Hoo boy. There is no reason aside from hate-voting for this to be below 4.25. This guy will win you games like crazy. A Glimpse the Unthinkable every turn is awesome, and the "draw 20" is great as a mill finisher and in conjunction with Omniscience. 5/5

Dedicated mill decks will always be casual in my opinion. But he is good for the +1 and the ultimate, and the 0 ability can come in handy.

Using him as a "0 hero" might be okay. But mill is not really doing anything until you win. It could disrupt tutors or top deck manipulation, or even disrupt a heavy card draw deck. But other then those situations, its not really impacting the game.

Still I will use him as a "0 hero" If I got an okay board position and a handful of cards. Otherwise take the card advantage. Still a nice alternative win condition.

As for his ultimate, if you can't win the game after drawing 20 cards for "free", your not playing magic correctly. Even if you have to discard down to 7, you still should win the game. But theirs no need to discard with the reprint of the tower. Also, if my opponent is close to 30 cards left, I have won the game plenty of times by letting them draw 20 and then dropping another Jace.
