Jace 3.0 Magic 2012 Spoiler

Before anyone yells, "Fake!" Realize that this is a mock-up. This was posted on Gathering Magic and other sites today so you have them to thank for creating the mock-up. It will be replaced with the real version once WotC adds the real version to the M12 Image Spoiler.

Just like all of the other updates: I'm adding this to the Magic 2012 spoiler here:

Regardless, I felt like this deserved its own post. G4TV's Attack of the Show actually previewed this today. All of the speculation and rumors have turned out to be true (except for all of the fake versions people have come up with of course).

For those that can't see the image. Jace, Memory Adept costs 3UU and his abilities are:
+1 Draw a card. Target player puts the top card of his or her library into his or her graveyard.
0 Target player puts the top ten cards of his or her library into his or her graveyard.
-7 Any number of target players each draw twenty cards.

This is Kylak signing out and glad that they finally balanced Jace.


  1. I agree with the finally balanced Jace thing. I just find it a little annoying to see another new Jace this soon. And no new Gideon? They both got their most recent previous iteration at about the same time(What's a few months between good friends?)!

    By the way, the opening video for DotP2012. Awesome. Pure awesome. Even if the game itself is a little meh. It improved on the previous DotP but taking out a two-headed giant campaign for an archenemy campaign is meh to me. Mox Sapphire though. I almost jizzed when I first drew that card in the game. I thought it was an island until I noticed the name wasn't island and the frame wasn't land. Then I read it and almost exploded. However, the deck is Karn's and it's not currently available for normal play. You can only fight against it in the campaign and use it in one challenge.

    This is pure speculation and probably not true but do you think that another reason they may be banning JtMS, other than being ridiculous and dominating standard, was because they were releasing a new jace in 2012 and didn't want two different Jaces to be legal at the same time. I've actually never noticed if they've released two iterations of a single planeswalker at the same time before. I'd think for continuity purposes you wouldn't since it wouldn't make sense for a planeswalker to exist in two forms at one time but if I remember correctly Jace Beleren was in 2011. I don't know, I'm just babbling then I guess.

  2. Hmmm, interesting. Gotta see him in play to know for sure, but he seems pretty balanced enough though. Hooray! No more OP!

  3. @ Opee
    Yeah, I agree with you. I would have preferred a new Sorin and Gideon but I'm sure we'll get to see new versions of both soon enough. They're main characters after all. :D

    Mox Sapphire huh? That's an interesting decision to add that. O.O

    Yep. You called it. Jace Beleren + Mind Sculptor in standard together and the same goes for Ajani Goldmane + Vengeant and Chandra Nalaar + Ablaze. They like to have a couple copies running around so the Planeswalker rule comes up but it would seem they like to keep it to a minimal.

    @ Wafflesaurus
    Isn't it grand? ^^

  4. Every day M12 gets more an more tempting. Though I still don't know how many packs of it I will get, if any a this moment.

  5. Totally understandable. Between Commander, M12, and Innistrad, my money may magically disappear.
