Quick Question: What happened to Jace (in Legacy)?
What happened to Jace (in Legacy)?

I think everything is too fast. Everyone is playing one mana three power creatures, some of which are untargetable. Itâ€™s obviously one of the most powerful cards of all time, but Legacy is too fast. Itâ€™s still the best card in the control-on-control matchup.
Mental Misstep got banned and the format sped up again.
Heâ€™s making a bit of a comeback in the U/W Miracles deck, but RUG and Merfolk make it kind of hostile; Spell Pierce, Daze and Wasteland are tough.
The format sped up. Turn four Jace just isnâ€™t good enough anymore when people are playing turn two Emrakuls.
I donâ€™t know. I think control decks need to answer so many things, with Show and Tell and Reanimator and all of the aggro decks. Itâ€™s tough to play a reactive game.
He clicked his heels together three times and went back to Ravnica.
Four mana in a field of Griselbrand is nearly unplayable. I still think itâ€™s good against the decks that itâ€™s difficult to resolve against, but itâ€™s not a make or break card like it used to be.
Thatâ€™s a good question. The blue decks are more aggro with small control elements, so the more expensive threats arenâ€™t as good. It was in Owen (Turtenwald)â€™s sideboard (at GP Atlanta) for the Reanimator mirror, so itâ€™s still around.
