Jace, Vryn's Prodigy Discussion

Thanks! You should check out the Modern Esper Goryo's Vengeance deck (first popped up around 2017). It has the same core of Obzedat + Goryo's Vengeance as well as Jace, Vryn's Prodigy Flip as a discard outlet and another reanimation target (Vengeance gives Jace haste, so you can flip him with his tap ability immediately, fizzling the exile trigger). I had a lot of fun with it back then.

Horobi, Death's Wail is a bit cheaper for the effect, even if it comes at a downside it's probably better anyway.

RambIe - How, pray tell, are they reinventing the format?
The RC clarified that MDFCs can be cast from either side... but that's not them making a new rule. That's simply how the rules work. Here's the two rules that are relevant:
903.1. "In the Commander variant, each deck is led by a legendary creature designated as that deck’s commander."
So long as the front face of a card is a legendary creature, it satisfies this rule--that's not something new in the slightest. In fact, we have seen this with the Origins planeswalkers, like Jace, Vryn's Prodigy Flip.
711.7. "A player casting a modal double-faced card as a spell chooses which face they are casting before putting it onto the stack."
Nothing in this rule requires you to cast from your hand in order to choose the side of the card. When casting a card from the Command Zone, you are indeed casting it. Thus, following the letter of the rule, you get to decide what side of the card you are using before putting it on the stack.
Your complaint about them "changing" the rules is entirely without merit; the only remaining explanation for the vitriol is that you do not like them because they are new and you are not used to them.

Kinda depends; one of the struggles of modern u/b is having to decide between discard, counterspells, or both. It's also easy to drift into a kinda-sorta tempo shell. Some general cards to consider... Thoughtseize , Inquisition of Kozilek , Drown in the Loch , Mana Leak , Archmage's Charm , Remand , Delay , Fatal Push , Bloodchief's Thirst , Murderous Rider , Brazen Borrower , Spell Snare , Cryptic Command , Snapcaster Mage , Jace, Vryn's Prodigy Flip, Behold the Multiverse , Rise / Fall (pet card of mine - might be worth a splash for it, Bolt, and K-command).

Back when Magic Origins had just come out, the five Flip Walkers were all more or less the same price - Gideon was a bit more expensive, because people thought he would make a white weenie deck real in modern, and Chandra was a bit less because she's just not as good as the others.
Anyway, I opened up a Jace, Vryn's Prodigy Flip, and played it in prerelease, and immediately noticed that it waaaaaaay outperformed what I thought it was going to be. So I traded my then-15$ Gideon for a friend's then-12$ Jace. A short while later, Jace was 90$, and Gideon was bulk.
Sadly, I didn't get to enjoy it, because I'm a commander player and I really only need one of each card, so I traded my new extra Jace for a friend's Chandra, Fire of Kaladesh Flip, because I like Chandra as a character.
