lemons452922 -- I agree with your proposed mana base (although your list is actually 23 not 24, so I would add either a second Overgrown Tomb, or a Twilight Mire). It is definitely an improvement on the OP's current setup.

There's definitely some merit to your other suggestions as well. I wish I had time to address them individually, but overall-- solid suggestions.

Opt > Sleight of Hand for a deck that relies on Instant-speed interaction. For that matter, so is Serum Visions.

Turn 3 Bloodbraid Elf cascade into Blood Moon. GG.

Very spicy indeed (including the sideboard tech). +1

On the surface, the most obvious strategy for Bloo variants in dealing with Jace will be to get in under him, swinging for lethal before he can be cast. This is a little problematic, however, given that we tend to grind well past the fourth turn against Control decks. The old Reveler builds won by out-valuing control decks in long games through a combination of real and virtual card advantage. You can't out-value Jace with his unparalleled card selection, however, so that isn't going to work any more. So back to the obvious strategy.

The most aggressive competitive Bloo builds right now run 4x Swiftspear, 4x Kiln Fiend, 4x TITI, 4x Bolt, and one or two Snapcasters. This build is a good example of what I'm talking about. It would have a reasonable chance of beating down control decks before Jace becomes relevant. It's far from guaranteed, however. Jescai Control packs a lot of mainboard problems for Bloo already between its Bolts, Paths, Helices, Spell Quellers, and Countermagic. Jace is probably going to make that matchup even tougher.

Irrespective of which Bloo build you are running, however, Stubborn Denial is going to be your friend against JTMC. Ultimately, it remains to be seen how we are going to fair against the new Control builds that will be popping up in the upcoming weeks and months though.
