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 [card]Rattlechains[/card] and [card]Dimensional Infiltrator[/card], but let’s see what we have here.

[draft]Curator of Mysteries
Glyph Keeper
Nimble Obstructionist
Skyship Plunderer
Slither Blade[/draft]

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

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

How about this?

[deck]
[creatures]
4 Skyship Plunderer
4 Daring Saboteur
4 Nimble Obstructionist
4 Curator of Mysteries
4 Glyph Keeper
[/creatures]
[spells]
4 Censor
4 Supreme Will
4 Drake Haven
4 Jace, Cunning Castaway
[/spells]
[lands]
4 Desert of the Mindful
20 Island
[/lands]
[/deck]

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.)
