Oath of Jace Discussion

Since you're running Praetors and Walkers Garruk Wildspeaker will help you ramp into your big stuff.
If you need card draw Rishkar's Expertise is super good with your general out or any Praetors, and will get you a free planeswalker most of the time.
Doubling Season would really make this deck into a powerhouse. Planeswalker ultimating left and right. My favorite walkers to use after Doubling Season is Jace, Unraveler of Secrets, Dovin Baan, and Ugin, the Spirit Dragon. If you haven't done Ugin ulti into Jace and Dovin ulti, you probably still have friends to play with.

So ever since The Locust God got spoiled, I immediately was thinking of constant draw engines to support its ability. And actually, a once neglected card may turn out to be quite useful now: Ghirapur Orrery!
So, this is a rather crafty deck and I need some help in finding the balance. The following cards I has as idea:
Alternate card ideas?:New Perspectives, we got a LOT of cycle cards. A one-off of this will make it go nuts. Hollow One , as we keep cycling, this card can be cast for very cheap and forms a strong blocker.
- why soft removal? We want to keep their hand size big of course, for fevered visions to burn them. And those tokens just keep recreating them anyway (and the insects have haste.)

I'm thinking about taking out Oath of Jace and maybe 1x Jori En, Ruin Diver in favor of 4 x Grip of the Roil. My reasoning is that Grip of the Roil would 1) Tap down an opposing creature. 2) Draw a card. 3) Be synergistic with Baral, Chief of Compliance, Jori En, Ruin Diver, and Thing in the Ice Flip. 4) Is an instant.

Ugin, the Spirit Dragon, Dack Fayden, and Gideon, Ally of Zendikar are all really good. Chandra, Torch of Defiance, Kaya, Ghost Assassin, Koth of the Hammer, Teferi, Temporal Archmage, and Sorin, Solemn Visitor are also really good. I would cut your venser, elspeth, sorin, and ashiok at the least. While they're good in modern I don't think they'll hold up in Archmage. You can only play 1 summer bloom. I would cut Nicol Bolas, and play at least 16-18 lands, even with rocks. Also Oath of Jace.

Norn's Annex is a must in this deck! My play group has a lot of artifacts, so Darksteel Forge is a real annoying threat amongst other indestructible creatures and artifacts, soo cards like Anguished Unmaking, Utter End, and merciless eviction are planeswalkers best friends cuz they exile, also Return to Dust is a fantastic card for more artifact/enchament removal in the form of exile!
Sphinx's Revelation is super good life gain and card draw and normally when my atraxa walkers deck im usually the first to get attacked, I play a littler higher creature base with cards like Wall of Omens and Wall of Blossoms, OH AND Spike Weaver IS AMAZING WITH ATRAXA!

Let me see if I can articulate this properly...
I'm not a huge fan of value creature-based strategies aside from elves for the reasons that I mentioned in my previous post. If the deck is to be more casual for now, then my advice would be to drop a lot of the creatures and replace them with more controlling pieces such as planewalkers, enchantments, card draw, counterspells, and etc.
Having two activations every turn of cards like Elspeth, Sun's Champion or Oath of Jace is definitely nothing to scoff at. I believe having less vulnerable permenants that consistently generate advantage is where Brago wants to be for lower power level meta's.
If not stax, then this is where I would personally go with the deck. However I do not want to come off as attempting to impose my ideals onto your deck building, so if blinking creatures is what you want to be doing then don't let me tell you otherwise.

JaceTheSwagSculptor fancy meeting you again! hahaha
I intended this deck to be more on the casual side, and I do know how to optimize it via adding stax pieces/Strionic Resonator to the deck. When I asked for optimization, I meant mainly for cards that were more optimal in place of cards that might be lacking in this deck. Hopefully this clears up any confusion!
Peanut3181 I was considering Basalt Monolith in place of a mana rock, because you're able to untap it via Brago. I can most definitely add it in. I'll also add the Trial and Oath of Jace back in, since at worst they're basically sorcery spells that stay on the field lol.
I think the potential to go infinite is there for Peregrine Drake, which I'm a bit hesitant about. However, I will consider them!
Some of the cards are really good, but they're kinda expensive for me. I'll add them to the maybeboard if I can trade for them, or get my hands on them in general, I will add them in.
@both (or anyone reading this): So as I mentioned to Jace, I intended this for more casual games. But! As you both may know, Brago is quite the hate magnet on the table. I think if he is too much of one, I may just say fuck it and go for the more cutthroat build, because I enjoy my decks functioning consistently and winning. I have done this before, with my Breya deck, so this isn't new haha. Anyways, I want to hear opinions on the deck.
I'm also happy to test it out the way it is, and then see if I should go the more cutthroat route, since it wouldn't take much investment lol.
