Quote from LormadorFour Jaces with combat damage! That's one tough cookie to crack.
Regarding the sideboard, depending on how much Miracles you tend to face, it's probably a good idea to bring in something. The Rack, Cursed Scroll, Shrieking Affliction, Luminarch Ascension, Bitterblossom, Elspeth, or something like that really helps.
Bant can't really protect Jace from combat damage, but Miracles can do so easily.
For the lulz, if you have to deal with the RiP-Helm variety of Miracles, packing your own Helm of Obedience is pretty funny. "Rest in Peace? Cool. Enlightened Tutor..."
Also, consider that Liliana counts as occasional mana denial, and it starts to become a significant portion of our strategy.
Quote from KobeBryanWith all these U/W delver TNN decks, should Massacre be in consideration?
Can be cast for free, just can't do -15 life to kill emmy or something.

Wow, I thought I had to stalk you on TheSource to see what you're running. My nit-picky questions
1 - Dryad Arbor with only a miser GSZ (no KotR)?
2 - Why Lingering?
3 - Why not Confidant #4 instead of Library #3?
4 - I lack goyfs. What would you run to "replace" it?
5 - No Thalia?
You're a fantastic player. Just picking your brain.
