Jace, Vryn's Prodigy

Legendary Creature — Human Wizard

: Draw a card, then discard a card. If there are five or more cards in your graveyard, exile Jace, Vryn's Prodigy, then return him to the battlefield transformed under his owner's control.

Jace, Vryn's Prodigy Discussion

Rhadamanthus on Lazav the Multifarious and transform/flip ...

Only a double-faced card can actually transform. For your example with Elusive Tormentor  Flip, this just means nothing happens and Lazav, the Multifarious is still a copy of the Tormentor. However, for your example with Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip or Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip there's a special rule that says Lazav will go to exile and stay there.

711.8a If a player is instructed to put a card that isn’t a double-faced card onto the battlefield transformed, that card stays in its current zone.

Honestly I think the best thing to do is add more Collective Brutality and Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip. Playing bad loot effects is definitely not the right way to adapt.

As sad as it is to lose this deck, it was completely unplayable because of the other graveyard decks, and modern is now in a better place without looting.

Ponder and Preordain are great cards to slide into the 99. You have all the on-color and off-color fetches, so Brainstorm would be great, too...

Narset, Parter of Veils is quickly becoming a blue EDH staple... she's amazing. If you run her, include Windfall as well -- it refills your hand, but if Narset, Parter of Veils is out, it also reduces your opponents'.

Carpet of Flowers is a good mana source if your meta is like mine and everyone is in blue. If you don't want to run elves, you should at least consider one-mana enchant-lands like Utopia Sprawl or Wild Growth . These are pretty good turn one plays.

Since you're only running a few artifacts with activated abilities, consider Collector Ouphe -- he can be a real pain for decks relying on artifact mana. If you don't put him in, consider Slate of Ancestry as a draw-engine.

I think Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip is enough better than Merfolk Looter you should run him instead... He's not a merfolk, but being able to recast important spells from the yard is extremely relevant.

If your meta is full of combo (mine is), consider Arcane Laboratory . It's worse than Rule of Law since it dies to Pyroblast , but since you can't run Rule of Law it's still pretty great.

I'd run Jace, Wielder of Mysteries instead of Laboratory Maniac if you want to go that route. Generally, you want combo pieces to have a large impact even if you don't have the combo in hand, and Laboratory Maniac is just a bear if you're not going off. Jace, Wielder of Mysteries is a draw engine as well.

Waterlogged Grove is a good land to consider. Also Flooded Grove . If you run Dryad Arbor , you'll be able to fetch it with Green Sun's Zenith . If you want to keep your basic land count high, also consider Back to Basics .

Mystic Remora can easily be an Ancestral Recall in inexperienced metas; and even in experienced ones, it's still worth including.

Triumph of the Hordes is a good win condition of the same sort as your Craterhoof Behemoth .

Good luck!

Tome Scour is so bad if you aren't playing an extremely dedicated graveyard deck. There have to better ways to dump things into the bin. Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip comes to mind. Heck, play a version with Grisly Salvage if you really want to go nuts. Lotleth Troll is an option, but seems bad to me. And actually Collective Brutality really is about as good as it gets. Why not play 4?

Without knowing the color identy of your deck or seeing your list it is very hard to help you but in blue I use these:

Well of Ideas ,

Mystic Remora ,

Rhystic Study obviously,

you can also use Kami of the Crescent Moon .

My friends also use these:

Kefnet the Mindful ,

Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip,

Azami, Lady of Scrolls .

Hope that helps.

Hey, necro-post incoming!

I think you hit the nail on the head with this article. I feel like Jace would have been better utilized as a background character, and I liked the direction he was going in story wise up until around after Worldwake. Similarly, I think the two best-designed Jaces are the first two. Jace Beleren plays like a more interesting Howling Mine , and Jace, the Mind Sculptor is the quintessential type-1 Blue Mage you’ve described, and his abilities all allow for varying synergies among different playstyles while still feeling coherent. Other than those two (and I suppose Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip, to an extent), Jace Cards are just boring blue.

At least they’ll probably back off on him now that War of the Spark is over.

(CAUTION: A Huge List of CMDRS dead ahead. If you can't comply, remember that I apologized for the huge wall.)

Well, I was just told how to do a Folder, but to choose what for decks is another thing entirely. Especially if such decks are either:

A: What Everyone Plays B: Are good, but have since been outdated by a year C: Are Tribal Leaders in a Specific Sense (No Morophon, the Boundless please.) D: Not Underdog CMDRs. E: Other.

Let's Just assume we use that cEDH Deck Tier List One-by-One; but w/ a new rule for Playtesting such decks so none of the cEDH Decks win out of overall ratios ~100% of the time; CHANNELFIREBALL-style. That said, From using the Tier List, I require the following CMDR Decks to not have cEDH Level Power, but are these:

Tier 0:

Thrasios, Triton Hero & Tymna the Weaver Partners

Tier 1:

Kess, Dissident Mage

Kraum, Ludevic's Opus

Najeela, the Blade-Blossom

The First Sliver (Not as a Sliver Tribe Leader)

The Gitrog Monster

Urza, Lord High Artificer

Vial Smasher the Fierce

Yisan, the Wanderer Bard

Zur the Enchanter

(NOTE: Unknown if Kraum, Ludevic's Opus & Vial Smasher the Fierce need to be Parters to be of this level.)

Tier 2:

Animar, Soul of Elements (Morph Decks not allowed.)

Baral, Chief of Compliance (Get your Counterspells Ready!)

Brago, King Eternal

Breya, Etherium Shaper

Circu, Dimir Lobotomist

Derevi, Empyrial Tactician

Edric, Spymaster of Trest

General Tazri (Mandatory Ally Tribe Leader)

Ghave, Guru of Spores

God-Eternal Kefnet

Godo, Bandit Warlord

Golos, Tireless Pilgrim

Grand Arbiter Augustin IV

Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip

Jeleva, Nephalia's Scourge

Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain

Kykar, Wind's Fury

Meren of Clan Nel Toth

Mizzix of the Izmagnus

Momir Vig, Simic Visionary

Narset, Enlightened Master

Niv-Mizzet, Parun

Niv-Mizzet Reborn

Scion of the Ur-Dragon (Possible Dragon Tribe Leader)

Selvala, Heart of the Wilds

Sidisi, Brood Tyrant

Sidisi, Undead Vizier

Sisay, Weatherlight Captain

Taigam, Ojutai Master

Tana, the Bloodsower

Teferi, Temporal Archmage

The Mimeoplasm

Varolz, the Scar-Striped

Xantcha, Sleeper Agent

Yarok, the Desecrated

Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder

Tier 3: WIP

But, yeah, you get the picture, right? Since I can't find such decks on my own to put in such a folder for decks worth testing against your own. Rules are as follows though:

  1. It needs to be up to date, prior to the Iona, Shield of Emeria & Paradox Engine bans & Painter's Servant unbanning/CMDR 2019's release; or just not include any of those at all.

  2. Each deck must not be of cEDH-level power; just imagine how much hell I'd have to playthrough against something just to beat a Thrasios/Tymna Partners deck just to have my claim on this notion nullified.

  3. Decks must include CMDRs that are Popular, were Popular as well as Tribal Decks w/ Good Tribe Leaders (For example: The First Sliver & Sliver Queen do not fit this category where Sliver Overlord does fit the Sliver Tribe Leadership. Scion of the Ur-Dragon & The Ur-Dragon can both count as Dragon Tribe CMDRs. Atraxa, Praetors' Voice is actually a bad CMDR to use in Superfriends, but Shines in all Counter Life. Make good use of that instead of making a 4< Color Walkers Deck. The rulings go on...)

I know this is too much for now, but I'm making a folder for Playtesting w/ decks as everyone kept telling me to do so; now I want to hold my end of the Bargain. But I seriously need help from you to do this. If you can find any decks here to add to such a Folder, put it on the comments below.

(& no, It's not like it's a personal thing! Anyone is allowed to use it when it's finished!)
