Jace, Memory Adept Discussion

MRDOOM3 on Dimir Mill

With Consuming Aberration, you can also run Sewer Nemesis and Wight of Precinct Six plus Phenax, God of Deception for some more efficient mill.

Jace, Memory Adept works as well. I will assume that Jace, the Mind Sculptor is still Modern banned, so I will not suggest him.

More pure mill you can run includes, but is not limited to: Archive Trap, Startled Awake  Flip, Traumatize, Mind Sculpt, etc.

Szadek, Lord of Secrets, Circu, Dimir Lobotomist, and Mirko Vosk, Mind Drinker work as well, although Circu doesn't work as well as the other two.

That, for the moment, is all I have to say. Good luck with the deck, and may topdeck be ever in your favor.

Thank you for the suggestions. I had Splinterfright in originally but took it out for other mana dorks. I love Nyx Weaver, but at the moment I think this deck mills itself fast enough.

The Lich and Splendid Reclamation are definitely going to be considered.

Anyone have any thoughts on Jace, Memory Adept?

Ya, I really like Hedron Crab, Infinimage007, I just don't know where I would cram it in! I do like milling on legs, but I would image Glimpse the Unthinkable and Jace, Memory Adept will be enough...but maybe not. I will find out soon! Thanks for the suggestion

Maybe try shifting Jace, Memory Adept to the sideboard and fin room for a few Breaking or maybe even Startled Awake  Flip... or maybe even Mind Grind since 3 land might be hard to hit, especially in use with Mind Funeral, those combo pretty well. Jace at 5 mana might be a bit to slow, and for 4 mana Startled Awake  Flip recurs but it might be too cute.

I play EDH using Mizzix, and one thing I learned is that the more counters you have, the bigger target you become. Also counters are 1 for 1's, so you have to find ways to increase your draw, otherwise you'll never be able to keep up.

My suggestion would to be to run some enchantments or planeswalkers to assist you with card and board advantage

For Draw

Dig Through Time

Treasure Cruise

Jace's Sanctum

Jace, Memory Adept

Jace, Telepath Unbound

Jace, Unraveler of Secrets

Teferi, Temporal Archmage

For Board Presence

Rise from the Tides

Metallurgic Summonings

Rite of Replication

For on spot removal, for things you couldn't counter


Rapid Hybridization

Better Counters

Mystic Confluence

Insidious Will

Chandra, Flamecaller has been such a beast in the sideboard of my R/x/x control and midrange decks I've found myself putting her mainboard. She's really hard to deal with and functions in Jund like Elspeth, Sun's Champion does for Abzan. She feels really underplayed, but that could be due to how fast the format has gotten.

Sorin, Grim Nemesis is another powerhouse. I'm on the fence over whether or not to play him or Elspeth, Sun's Champion in Abzan midrange. He has a +1 that draws cards on top of being a fat body.

I've noticed that WotC has really increased the power of 6-mana planeswalkers the last couple of sets. If the format were slower (i.e. less Dredge, Zooicide, Burn, and Infect), they'd show up more frequently.

Overall, I'd have to agree with most of the other posters and the general consensus of this thread. I'd personally rank them:

  1. Liliana of the Veil
  2. Nahiri, the Harbinger
  3. Karn Liberated
  4. Jace, Telepath Unbound  Flip
  5. Ugin, the Spirit Dragon
  6. Elspeth, Sun's Champion
  7. Garruk Wildspeaker
  8. Gideon Jura
  9. Chandra, Flamecaller
  10. Koth of the Hammer
  11. Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver
  12. Ajani Vengeant
  13. Jace, Architect of Thought
  14. Sorin, Solemn Visitor
  15. Sorin, Grim Nemesis
  16. Liliana, the Last Hope
  17. Garruk Relentless  Flip
  18. Nissa, Worldwaker
  19. Domri Rade
  20. Jace Beleren
  21. Gideon, Ally of Zendikar
  22. Elspeth, Knight-Errant
  23. Chandra, Pyromaster
  24. Chandra, Torch of Defiance
  25. Dovin Baan
  26. Ral Zarek
  27. Tezzeret the Seeker
  28. Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas
  29. Ajani, Caller of the Pride
  30. Kiora, Master of the Depths
  31. Nissa, Voice of Zendikar
  32. Narset Transcendent
  33. Jace, Memory Adept
  34. Saheeli Rai
  35. Sarkhan, the Dragonspeaker

I think my top 3 aren't really up for much debate as to their order. 4 through 9 are the cream of the crop, but not as format-defining as the top 3. Everything between 10 and 21 is probably on equal power level in terms of the format. 22 on down are kind of "ho-hum." They are planeswalkers I'd consider Modern playable, but haven't been used as frequently or found a home yet. Good arguments could be made some of them should be higher, lower, or replaced by other planeswalkers.

Lastly, Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker is absolutely hilarious with Oath of Nissa, Utopia Sprawl, and Arbor Elf.

I like the idea, some cards to consider are Glimpse the Unthinkable, Dimir Infiltrator is another unblockable with a bit more toughness, there's an infinite combo with Duskmantle Guildmage's first ability and Mindcrank, personally I love Jace, Memory Adept in a deck like this.If you need a big creature Consuming Aberration and Jace's Phantasm are great. Your deck looks pretty good the way it is, I'd just consider these cards for a sideboard.

Hey chris.captain13, the deck is looking totally awesome. I'm not keen on running four Dispel main, but you know what you're playing against, so I assume they work for you!

Not a fan of Coral Atoll though, feels like it's unnecessarily slowing you down, so not for me personally. I feel that as good as Jace is, if you took the Jace, Memory Adept out of the deck, you could drop the land to 20, and run something like 4x Gitaxian Probe, and another two Rush of Ice. That's the sort of direction I'd look at going in.

Great job though mate, well done.
