Deceiver Exarch Discussion

new jace isnt getting anything banned. Twin and Saheeli cat had something dangerous in common: a 2 card infinite damage combo. New jace can make infinite tokens and infinite jaces with doubling season sure, but they can't swing unless you have a third card to give all the tokens haste. On top of that, doubling season is 5 mana, where Splinter Twin & Felidar Guardian were both 4 drops, and Saheeli Rai & Deceiver Exarch were both three drops. Making the combo cost one more mana IS a massive setback in modern; making it cost 1 more mana AND require a third card to even guarantee a win makes it borderline unplayable.
I speak from three years experience trying to break Pili-Pala + Grand Architect, and if you mean to tell me that somehow new jace and Doubling Season are better standalone cards than GA and pili... well I'll respectfully disagree I suppose.
As far as commander is concerned, Protean Hulk, Deadeye Navigator, Doomsday, and Rings of Brighthearth are all legal. I doubt new jace is getting anything banned in that format either, since his combo isnt faster than a typical storm deck is.
New jace has no infinites in standard, so he's not making splashes there either

@supagrex Maybe they want blue to be a thing again in Modern? You'll see decks try to win with it paired with a Impact Tremors and/or Altar of the Brood. I think Deceiver Exarch and Splinter Twin combo was much more deadlier for blue than the combo I just mentioned, so I suppose they're trying to reinstate a nerfed blue combo deck.

Well the best advice I can honestly give for consistency is definitely more lands. At least 3-6 more. I know it sucks taking cards out, but believe me you wanna be able to hit land drops every turn if you want to play stuff like Thraximundar, Platinum Angel or Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker. For added consistency, tutors definitely help a million. You have demonic tutor, which is a fantastic start, but also consider stuff like Diabolic Tutor, Diabolic Intent, Increasing Ambition, or just the classic Vampiric Tutor if budget isn't a problem. If you want to make it more competitive, then also consider some infinite combos. In Grixis you have insanely good options such as Palinchron and Deadeye Navigator for infinite mana, Zealous Conscripts/Pestermite/Deceiver Exarch and Splinter Twin/Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker for infinite hastey combat damage, or just any Doomsday pile with your wincon being Laboratory Maniac. And those are just a very few that are quite popular! Personally I'm all about value decks, but I firmly believe every EDH deck should always have an infinite combo that can win on the spot. It doesn't necessarily have to be what the main focus of the deck is either, but regardless something that can close out a game immediately so you and your play group can get onto the next game, I think, should always be something heavily considered. Anyway I'm digging how spell heavy the deck is, and I'm positive it's a ton of fun to play with then it gets going! Hopefully I could be of some help!

The blocker will always be able to survive combat as long as the attacker doesn't have some form of evasion. For instance, if one player is using Deceiver Exarch and the other player is using Pestermite, the Pestermite player will be able to win when they attack.
