They should errata the card for Vintage so you can use it instead of Black Lotus

We see this with formats such as premodern, and the player made ban lists are terrible.

Thanks for the responses! I can see why this planeswalker may not make the cut except for as a fringe card drawing spell. I admit that when I saw it, I was thinking about all the other great 3 mana Planeswalkers, not realizing that this Jace might as well just be a Jace Beleren.

I feel like this could still be an option along side Jace Beleren for hitting islands in a Stasis deck, but that’s pretty far from the mainstream competitive metagame.

I think it does “counter” the spell by returning it to hand. It’s just like Venser or unsubstantiate

There’s actually a black land with this effect already. https://scryfall.com/card/eld/241/castle-locthwain

I would absolutely love premodern Vintage — in fact I actually already brew decks for such a format because it’s enjoyable for me to handle the cards from this era and fully anticipate it to be a thing in the near future.

I already am very enthusiastic about premodern and middle school and strongly dislike the new art, the new borders, Planeswalkers, and OP hatebears that dominate the modern vintage meta. I keep up with Vintage just for traditions sake, but actually playing modern vintage just isn’t remotely appealing to me.

I use it to grab the AK for 4 that I just exiled with my Psychatog

76 tix won’t get you anywhere, but you can convert your tix to cash using manatraders. Then buy some Arabian Knights Sindbads or a SuChi. You’ll thank me later.

Eh bro’s whatchu mean Vintage isn’t for budget players?

Vintage 4 every1

In all seriousness, with 10-15 proxy Vintage is the cheapest format to get into. And if I didn’t have any money, I’d probably want to play the maximum number of $1 Grafdiggers Cages/Weathered Runestone and then go from there.

@lienielsen Sylvan is literally in the OP

I’ve listened to the first couple of hours of this podcast and I’ve become more excited about Vintage than I’ve been in a while. I really hope we get to revisit some of these nostalgic formats of the past, but I’m also open to the idea of playing modern Vintage again and embracing what comes next!

Maybe this will leave the door open for functional reprints of power 9
