I like it, I don't love it. Going big but under is certainly where you want to be. I can't say I'm a fan of Logic Knot or Remand. Remand perhaps is fine, but I think the Logic Knot should be another Countersquall.

2x Terminate has me in pain. I'd play 4 if it weren't for control, but with only 2 I don't think you'll draw it enough to beat eldrazitron or ponza. I think you can drop 1 land for a 3rd.

I love Field of Ruin. It's the real deal for maindeck land destruction.

What are your thoughts on Serum Visions vs Opt? I've been playing opt recently because it's an instant, but I'd like your thoughts.

Otherwise I think this is the correct Jace list to play. I really want someone to bring infect to a big modern tournament and curb-stomp all the greedy Azcanta and Jace and 4x Cryptic players. Infect, if built correctly, could be so good in this meta of control and tron.

I think that you have a fun shell for right now. I'd consider running a few small creatures like Monastery Swiftspear, Delver of Secrets  Flip, Young Pyromancer, Thing in the Ice  Flip, and Stormchaser Mage to put pressure on your opponent early to interact with you, and then back it up using efficient countermagic like Spell Pierce. Because Narset doesn't work well with countermagic and is fairly slow I'd consider cutting it. I think something else that should be considered is cantrips, such as Thought Scour, Opt, and Serum Visions. This would not only give you more spells in the deck that would run you into more spells, but it would be able to give you a graveyard for delve in the case of Thought Scour, but also a little bit of sifting power to find the right answer at the right time with the scrying. Also because you will run through your deck faster this way, you should be able to go down a few lands so you'll have more gas. One other thing: Unsummon should probably be replaced with Vapor Snag, as Vapor Snag seems to just have pure upside. Let me know what you think, and good luck with the brewing!

With all the instant speed spells, I would trade the 2x Faithless Looting and 2x Sleight of Hand for 4x Opt.

Jace, second of his name, The unbanned, devastator of wallets, warper of formats, and sculptor of minds, seems to be important these days.

Other than that, you can probably go with the "usual" stuff - a mix of hand disruption like Thoughtseize and Inquisition of Kozilek, counterspells like Logic Knot and Cryptic Command, removal like Fatal Push, sweepers like Damnation and card advantage like Snapcaster Mage and Dark Confidant. Oh, and Liliana of the Veil, too. Add to that lands like Watery Grave, Polluted Delta and Creeping Tar Pit, and a bit of card selection, like Serum Visions and/or Opt, and you should be running along just fine.

Opt and Serum Visions are both viable options in place of Anticipate, and can be swapped out for them if you wanted to since they're very similar in usage.

Here's my take on Anticipate over them, both are basically a 1 cmc version of Anticipate, with Opt going down 1 less than the others. Anticipate is useful as it let's you go 3 cards deep and choose any of them to put in your hand then put the others away, while in Serum Visions case you draw the top card no matter what, so it could be a dead draw while the scry afterwards is going to only come into effect next turn( or next draw). There's also the difference in sorcery and instant speed, so you can't hold mana and bluff a counterspell then cast Serum Visions before the end step of your opponent's turn like you could with the other two. Opt let's you go scry first which is nice, but seeing only 2 cards may not be enough for you to get the cards you want.

Since there's a fairly decent amount of copies of each card, putting them on the bottom doesn't make it so you have a reduced chance of getting it if it was a crucial card. Overall it's more a choice between if you prefer the ability to pull cards from deeper in your deck or top deck manipulation, in my case I prefer pull cards from deeper down.

Peer Through Depths is gonna be better than Opt 9 times out of 10, from what I can tell. Also, maybe a 1-of The Unspeakable
