God that description had to have taken forever; +1 just for the effort. Personally, I love Jace, Architect of Thought especially when coupled with Deepglow Skate or Doubling Season . It won't out right win the game unless your opponents are playing degenerate cards; my line typically went ultimate jace aot, grab an Ugin, the Spirit Dragon out of my deck, ultimate the ugin and vomit out some lands and walkers. Usually I prioritized getting things like Eternal Witness from opponents decks and by this point they realize they're punished by their own deck construction and scoop it up.

Mark Rosewater has said that if it ever comes down to flavor or mechanics, flavor wins.

I think we can ask the same question about legendary creatures. For example, at what cost can you justify a 7/7?

Well, if the creature costs like Griselbrand , sure. That's a very steep cost. It should be huge. Likewise, Deep-Slumber Titan has so many hurdles to overcome that the 4cmc for a 7/7 isn't that bad because it requires a lot of setup and work. Next there is Enormous Baloth , who is very easy to get out due to the lack of color restrictions, but also brings nothing you the table aside from a vanilla 7/7 body.

It's all about the number of colors on the card and the mechanics involved.

You can have a 5c Planeswalkers that costs just 5 mana and that's going to be a LOT harder to get out than Ugin, the Spirit Dragon who can be put into any deck.

So to answer your question, there really isn't one. It depends on a multitude of factors:

  • What is the overall CMC
  • How many colored symbols are there?
  • How many different colors are there
  • Is it a back / side character or the main character?
  • What does the card ultimately want to do? E.G. what is the level of power it is designed to be at?

This is where R&D comes into play. A Planeswalker who has a CMC of 6 may feel okay bringing 5 to the board, but what if this newly designed Planeswalker also costs three colors? Perhaps our first Mardu Planeswalkers?

It's all about both design and perspective. You need to consider the environment it is being designed for, the way it is being designed, and who the design is representing.

My favorite ultimate in edh is Jace, Architect of Thought . With Deepglow Skate or Doubling Season you just win out of no where with your opponents cards; if you can afford an Ugin, the Spirit Dragon it just gets that much more ridiculous.

after all the biggest weakness of this deck is lots of small creature, and Ugin, the Spirit Dragon 's middle loyalty ability is a nice way to board wipe your opponents without hurting you own stuff

i chose to keep Ugin, the Spirit Dragon to deal with tokens/aggro and put Karn, the Great Creator on the sideboard for against Urza decks

it's up to you, its your deck and playstyle, but Ugin, the Spirit Dragon and Karn Liberated on the field put a big target on you and you are already dealing with a big target playing eldrazi
