I have played New Jace in my mono-U list this weekend. Cut 2 part the waterveils and went up a Temporal Trespass and a Walk the Aeons. Switched a Snapcaster mage and a land for 2 Mission Briefings. It is a real win condition that deserves more testing. Usually cut Jace after sideboard and added Thing in the Ice (and a Kefnet for lulz).
Won against Mono-R prison and against B/G Rock.
Lost due to bad keeps against Ponza (1-2) and lost against a Narset out of GDS (1-2).

Mar 15, 2019Posted in: ComboQuote from timewalkinonsunshine »Nice, your list looks sweet! I feel like you have a lot of colorless sources for a deck with Gigadrowse, Cryptic Command, and Boomerang, but I suppose that Field of Ruin is basically an Island when you need it to be. And Twisted Image is some amazing tech for if those 0/Xs start picking up meta share. Thanks for the reminder about that card!
I have won more thanks to Field of Ruin than I have lost because of the lack of colored sources, but it happens

Took me a while, but I took this list (only missing foil Jace, Time Warp, Exhaustion and Chalice/Surgical in foil) to a 7-1 (+2 ID's) finish in side events at GP Straatsburg. Also finished 3-1 in my last FNM. Ended up with 4 boxes for my troubles
Tron (2x) (number of Karns commandeered: 1)
Burn (got lucky)
U/R Living End with As Foretold (Chalice on 0)
Merfolk and Esper Tempo(Aether Vial + Queller, Deputy of Detention, Kitesail Freebooter...)
Also beat the living crap out of U/W Control and U/R Phoenix in casual games.
The current meta has some good vibes going on for Taking Turns. Humans and Spirits being pushed out by U/R Phoenix and Dredge, who have way worse interaction and need to (mostly) attack to win is very favorable. The rise of Death's Shadow and burn are less ideal, as is the decline of U/W Control.
I also keep my faith in Mono-U for now. It is consistent, has Field of Ruin and hardly loses to itself (and almost foil). I often find 1 dismember to be enough to make a difference and I get lucky enough to have a shot in the worse match ups.
I would consider 1 twisting image if Thing in the Ice, Hierarch and Spellskite show up (even) more often. It is a modest common, so should be easy to test. Next stop: MKM Ghent in april.
