Jace, Cunning Castaway Discussion

I would recommend using Skyship Plunderer in place of Slither Blade. a T2 SP followed by T3 Jace, Cunning Castaway means you can make your Jace tokens as early as T4, since most decks will not have a flying blocker that early on.

Have you considered Heart of Kiran, perhaps in place of Siren Lookout ?

Heart of Kiran, Jace, Cunning Castaway, and Skyship Plunderer all work very nicely together.

T2: Drop Skyship Plunderer T3: Drop Jace, Cunning Castaway, +1, swing with Skyship Plunderer put another loyalty counter so now he is at 5. T4: Swing with Skyship Plunderer, add a counter, he is at 6. Main Phase 2, -5 Jace, Cunning Castaway and get two more copies of Jace.

Now you have three copies of Jace, Cunning Castaway to work with, so as soon as you drop Heart of Kiran you can crew it using one copy, all while continuing to tick up loyalty on the other copy/copies. By the time you use all the loyalty counters from the crew copy, you will have generated more copies and can just continue the cycle.

I built something very similar around Jace, Cunning Castaway early in Ixalan. Have you thought about Lookout's Dispersal and Heart of Kiran? Lookout's Dispersal is pretty easy to cast for 1B, as you have 8 pirates (and with Arcane Adaptation you could turn your whole creature set into pirates pretty easily. With Skyship Plunderer you can get Jace to 5 loyalty on T3, and on T4 you have 2 Jace to work with, one you can keep building up to 5 and splitting, and the other can crew Heart of Kiran until it runs out of counters, by which point you move on to a new Jace and start all over again.

Removed Heart of Kiran From main to side board

Removed Jace, Cunning Castaway from main to maybe board

Removed Servant of the Conduit from mian to maybe board

Removed The Immortal Sun from side to maybe board

Added Untamed Kavu to main board

Added Land to fix mana issues

Tweaked card values, thinking about removing Llanowar Elves. Reasoning is due to mana curve, we seem to hit it very well even without hitting a turn 1 spell. If we fall into an opening OPT we are set up very well.

TheRealAdam thanks for the feedback. You're absolutely right. And I like your suggestion of Warkite Marauder. I'm not sure that Jace, Cunning Castaway is even good enough to be in the deck... even though he is the purpose of the deck. Just not very good all-in-all. A 2 hitter for 2 would be even better! What do you think?

Have you thought about Jace, Cunning Castaway and River's Rebuke.

Jace, Cunning Castaway is pretty cheap now even though he is a 3 mana planeswalker with a looting effect at + 1, make a 2/2 Illusion at -2 and make two other jaces which isn't legendary at - 5.

River's Rebuke for token decks and irritating enchantments ?

Unlike EDH, substitutions in Standard make a deck a WHOLE lot weaker.

The best I can suggest is the following:

This was quite fun! I don't often get the challenge of finding substitute cards.

Mind you, I wouldn't want to do that all the time.
