Jace, the Mind Sculptor Discussion

DivineKhaos Thanks for the comment and upvote!

I personally like having 2 cards in the "Burn" category in case one ends up in my hand, that way I can still tutor up the other if I want to end the game quickly. Although Blinkmoth Infusion isn't particularly useful for casting, you can pitch it to Force of Will, Force of Negation or Misdirection since it's blue. I don't find myself ever having enough mana to hard cast Expropriate, but I think Treasure Cruise is a great option if you need more card draw.

As for Gingerbrute, I think it's a great card in cEDH versions of Yuriko since it has haste. But in grindier, damage-focused Yuriko decks, I find paying 1 to make it unblockable isn't worth it, since you could just play something like Mist-Cloaked Herald instead.

In my opinion, Jace, the Mind Sculptor isn't the best fit for Yuriko decks because our creatures are so small and unable to block attackers. More often than not, you'll pay 4 mana to brainstorm on the turn you cast Jace, and he'll be dead by the time it gets to your next turn.

I hope this was helpful! :D

Not sure of your budgetm but Jace, the Mind Sculptor seems like he'd be good. Essentially a free Brainstorm every turn plus the option to bounce a problematic creature should you need to. Also Magus of the Wheel and Jace's Archivist both serve as redundant wheel/windfall effects, the latter being repeatable each turn.

I've been working on a circu cedh list for a long time. I can't quite get it to where I want it to be, thus I'm here viewing a working one. I really like scepter in this list. I like what the deck is aiming to do. I had some cards set aside for my list and was wondering your take on them for your list.

Field of Dreams, Jace, the Mind Sculptor, Psychic Surgery help manipulate top deck fairly well. Also Narset, Parter of Veils works pretty well with Windfall.

Nice list. +1

I'm not sure what Yorion would do other than let you reuse Eternal Witness, let you change Detention Sphere target, or reset Jace, the Mind Sculptor starting loyalty which is already pretty low. Just because it can be your companion doesn't mean it should.

Sidenote: Maybe Idyllic Tutor to fetch Battle of Wits?

Thanks for the suggestions, I really like the chain of vapor idea, and have just played a bunch of games with my play group with the changes, and let me tell you, bouncing a Jace, the Mind Sculptor on 9 counters feels really good

I dont think I like Divert, as it feels like a dead card in some match-ups as you don't draw a card off of it like you do with some of the other utility pieces like Cling to Dust. Ulcerate would be an option to put in the deck and was a card I was considering but ultimately cut.

I have not yet considered Erebos's Intervention and will definitely give it a try as there are quite a few mid range-y mardu pyromancer and land decks in my meta-game, and the second clause seems really really good againsed them, and doubling as a kill spell adds the utility for the other match ups,

thanks for the suggestions, will definitely be making changes

You’re right about Serum Visions being a potential bust. I was debating between that or the other one (I forget what it’s called now) that’s essentially a reverse serum visions, it’s scry then draw.

I love the idea of Jace, the Mind Sculptor, but I have two issues. 1) he’s exorbitantly expensive, and 2) he costs 4 mana just to get out. With Serum Visions it brings dirt cheap deck manipulation as early as turn 1.

I haven’t 100% settled on a finished version of this deck though, so if there are other potential top deck manipulation ideas you can think of I’d love to hear them. Thanks for the interest.

You may not need it, but it could be possible to add some top of the library altering something, like a brainstorm type card, Serum Visions seems like it can work, but on the chance that you draw on of your larger creatures, it will be awhile before it can be cast. Jace, the Mind Sculptor could work, as he isn’t creature. Though it is pricy

King_marchesa Planeswalkers don't always make it to their ultimate though, and some of the best abilities of walkers are their intermediate abilities. Liliana, Dreadhorde General, Liliana Vess, Jace, the Mind Sculptor, and Nicol Bolas, Dragon-God are good examples, although Dragon God doesn't fit within Aminatou's color identity.

I'll throw in my two cents. Pir, Imaginative Rascal plus Toothy, Imaginary Friend?
