Ixalan Brews, pt. 2 – Monoblue Jace

Wow, a Jace I actually like. Now, don’t get me wrong. There’s been powerful Jace’s before, but this one I like for how it works and there’s a huge difference there.

What do we want here? Cheap creatures with evasion. Sadly, we’re losing both [scryfall]Rattlechains[/scryfall] and [scryfall]Dimensional Infiltrator[/scryfall], but let’s see what we have here.

Yes, I’m actually advocating for [scryfall]Slither Blade[/scryfall] in constructed (I probably wouldn’t really play it, though). The curve is a bit high here, but gladly we have [scryfall]Daring Saboteur[/scryfall] from the new set.

And…. What do you know, [scryfall]Drake Haven[/scryfall] triggers from discards as well.

How about this?

4 Skyship Plunderer
4 Daring Saboteur
4 Nimble Obstructionist
4 Curator of Mysteries
4 Glyph Keeper
4 Censor
4 Supreme Will
4 Drake Haven
4 Jace, Cunning Castaway
4 Desert of the Mindful
20 Island

By the way, I love this design. Not sure I’ll ever play this, but I already do love the idea of this. Maybe it could even work in the new small card pool? (Nah. One can still dream.)
