Jace, the Mind Sculptor Discussion

goblinguiderevealpls on Taigam and Maralen's Sinister Song

1 day ago

Personally I would playtest or ask your playgroup, if they're ok with it, run them, if not theres tons of blue filler available, yea he is not a leovold in the command zone, but the 3 card combo maralen, mindlock and taigam seems very similar to functionality as Notion Thief plus a Windfall in my nekusar, i guess the comparison i meant was more of a "draw denial" theme.

I may have spoken from experience, but the "color hate" im referring to is more the card pools, my playgroup is very high end so legacy cards like Force of Will Mana Drain Timetwister Chains of Mephistopheles The AbyssNether Void Jace, the Mind Sculptor Imperial Seal Vampiric Tutor Mana Crypt and Candelabra of Tawnos, obviously there are other budgetless cards in white red and green, but blue/black in a legacy pool is perhaps the strongest 2 color, the most prominent example being Underground Sea and it being one of the most expensive dual lands.

In a budgetless playgroup, black and bluehas the scariest selection of spells, its also the colors needed to run the competitive storm archetype due to needing black for Doomsday and blue for Laboratory Maniac and a "draw 4 cards" spell such as Read the Runes or Breakthrough in the doomsday pile, and those decks are definition of unfun, turn swamp, Dark Ritual, Doomsday putting lab maniac on bottom, then win in 5 or less turns when you cast LM and draw with 0 cards in deck... Laboratory Maniac is EXTREMELY useful in mill decks for obvious reasons: opponents die to mill but you dont

Well when the time comes, the discard goes out and in comes Force of Will. Jace, the Mind Sculptor sees play generally as a 1 of.

@abby315: rofl I didn't even think about flickering it to reset the ability. For some reason, I was thinking it read "When you cast Stalking Leonin..." and not an ETB.

@Marcus_Licinius_Crassus: I'm always hesitant to name 4 CMC blue cards due to Jace, the Mind Sculptor already occupying that slot in so many deck lists. You're probably right, though. Being able to flashback spells each turn on a 3/4 is solid.

It's the exact kind of card the more tempo-oriented decks (like Grixis Delver) want.

Very interesting breakdown! I had NOT considered the ambush Cat, but with Aether Vial it certainly seems interesting and at 3 CMC it's perfectly at the top end. A reusable Swords to Plowshares with Flickerwisp is definitely worth testing, though it's sad that the value goes down somewhat after being Aether Vialed in, since afterwards the effect is broadcasted.

I think the Notion Thief cat at 4 mana will see marginal sideboard play AT BEST, entirely depending on how many Jace, the Mind Sculptor decks are around. 4 mana is not where you want Vial to be and it's pretty expensive to hardcast. But I don't play the deck, so I dunno!

How did I forget about Mystical Tutor?? Thanks.

I'll try out Jace Beleren, great 3 drop. I WISH I had a Jace, the Mind Sculptor, but alas, I do not.

Glimpse the Unthinkable is in there, but think that Tome Scour is too small for EDH

I think i do need a few more creatures, but I want them to be all utility. the reason for this is because almost every player in my small meta run high life gain decks like Oloro, Ageless Ascetic. So I rarely can win by hitting life totals (with this deck). I thought about Snapcaster Mage but I don't really blink with this deck. I try to play from the graveyard or copy spells

I could probably go with some reanimate effects too.

Thanks for the help I will consider my options

I would also suggest Mystical Tutor, it really helps to find that Traumatize early in the game when it matters most. Reanimate is also really good, since you don't have a lot of creatures and could hit a few dry patches, maybe check out other cards like that. Jace's Phantasm is a Flying 5/5 for one mana essentially, so that's an idea. Mill in any format is pretty hard to consistently win with, so it's hard to say what to add. Jace planes walkers are pretty useful, especially Jace Beleren and Jace, the Mind Sculptor. More so for their draw card ability than anything and the fact they're cheap to cast. I think they're both better than Memory adept.

Also, for the cost, nothing really beats Tome Scour and Glimpse the Unthinkable.

Winterblast on Wincons with Atraxa

That's probably because you are currently not focused on one main strategy. Having a look at your deck, I think you have a lot of stuff that doesn't do much and is just there to fill slots. Especially among the instants/sorceries you have a lot of very situational cards that are completely useless until a very specific situation comes up.

Of course it depends on how much you want to spend on the deck and which cards you already have lying around at home now. The planeswalkers should be ones that can potentially end the game and have useful + abilities to get you there, for example Narset Transcendent, Tezzeret the Seeker , Jace, the Mind Sculptor, Jace, Unraveler of Secrets...a planeswalker with Gilder Bairn should be a win option and not just a gimmick.

Some more of the good mana arttifacts would be great too. You should be able to get the three legal moxes and lotus petal for around 100$ and mana crypt and vault for under 50...voltaic key of course, but that costs nothing. If you are willing to invest a bit in the mana base, you can expect better results even with the current build. You have to consider that these cards won't lose their value and you can stuff them in every EDH deck you want to build.
