Oath of Jace Discussion
1 month ago
Thanks for your comment !I am still seeking the direction of my deck,I kind of like your suggestion on Baleful Strix,Oath of Liliana and Oath of Jace,and i had go through your deck and found that your deck have much more blockers,which I think i should really consider about it.
Due to really insufficient slot, I cant really play more walkers which i actually considering to remove Deploy the Gatewatch, but i like this card so i will hold it for now... and play a few more games to see how the deck work..
will update the deck again soon !

The way I would build a deck like this is dependent on who you're playing with. Cards like Rhystic Study, Time Warp, and Rings of Brighthearth are very powerful but make you an instant target with strangers, and might frustrate your friends. Doubling Season is obviously one of the best cards in the deck but it is also somewhat boring - just play a walker and ult, not really a lot of other interesting interaction.
As for some of the other card choices:
Oath of Ajani seems lackluster, you may want to replace it with either Oath of Liliana for a decent removal effect and blockers every turn or Oath of Jace which goes nicely with Sensei's Divining Top.
The mana dorks you have feel like overkill when you're also running artifact and sorcery ramp - maybe play some deathtouch cards like Baleful Strix to discourage early attacking or force your opponent into bad trades.
Your walkers themselves are all solid, but you may want to play more that 18 just to see them as often as you can be it through draw or Deploy the Gatewatch.
I'll include a link down below to the Ramos Walker deck I build recently to give you a few more ideas. Best of luck with the deck!

Who would you cast as the 5 Gatewatch planeswalkers if there was going to be a movie?
Now I haven't read much of the lore, but mainly from looking at the art on the Oath cards, Oath of Gideon , Oath of Jace, Oath of Chandra, Oath of Nissa, Oath of Liliana, I would cast:
Gideon: Liam Hemsworth
Jace(Not really sure about this one): Ansel Elgort
Chandra: Kate McKinnon
Nissa (Not quite sure about this one either): Brie Larson
Liliana: Angelina Jolie
Are my choices totally off? Who would you cast? Comment below!EDIT: Sorry I had a formatting errors! Tried to link the names to pics but it didn't work

Okay, well I am commenting here since you had asked for the help. Ballsy to ask so many people. I like it. Anyway, I enjoy your deck and see that there are a lot of cards that people have suggested that I really agree with. However, as you haven't changed the deck yet to show what you are actually taking as far as the suggestions go, it makes it kind of difficult to give good feedback without just repeating what others have said.
It is a major disappointment that your playgroup has banned Doubling Season, because that is the main thing this screams for. Contagion Engine is also a must. All of your oaths, I would get rid of. They are okay, I guess, but there are better things to have. The only oath that I consider worth having is Oath of Jace because the scry is so damn strong. You need more ways to protect yourself and your walkers from harm, so I suggest Ghostly Prison, Propaganda, Sphere of Safety, Venser, Shaper Savant and Leyline of Sanctity. Ugin, the Spirit Dragon would be a solid addition for you as well. You also need a bit more targeted removal to get rid of annoying creatures that keep coming back as well as bombs like Avacyn. Swords to Plowshares and Path to Exile are perfect examples of removal for this deck. A bit more draw could be useful so you get more walkers in a timely manner. Phyrexian Arena, Staff of Nin, and Erebos, God of the Dead come to mind as well as Tezzeret's Gambit which proliferates as well.
I know that part of this is just repeating what you have already seen, but I hope it helps.

Mandalorian Thanks for the comment I decided to cut the Oath of Jace and add 2 Serum Visions and 2 Path to Exile in its place. I also cut 2 Nissa, Steward of Elements and moved that to 2 Nissa, Voice of Zendikar and cut the 1 of Jace and Kimora for an extra copy of Oath of Nissa and an extra copy of Gideon, Ally of Zendikar. Also I was wondering if you think it is worth it to run Djeru, With Eyes Open I've put him in as a way of fetching more planeswalkers and it also has an interesting synergy with Venser, the Sojourner so I can flicker him to tutor more planeswalkers up. I am not sure though if I should just cut him in order to put in more removal. I also cut 1 copy of Evolving Wilds so I could put in a 1 of Supreme Verdict. Thanks for the feedback I really appreciate it.

Some on flavor card choices would be:
Bolas is another story entirely. He has tons of flavor cards. I have personally chosen to leave out Planeswalkers from my Gatewatch decks, leaving the Commander as the only Planeswalker. My Bolas deck will have each copy of Bolas.
Something to note is most cards that benefit Planeswalkers only benefit you, like The Chain Veil. It does not provide benefit to your allies.
