    Could this be the end of all of the Jace planeswalkers?

    • Kevan Kramer

      Nope, because Jace is in the next set.

    • Kaiser

      Nope, all the Oath get some of this

  • Deadly Berry

    Why is this card so beautiful? Oh right, Jace is tasting a little of his own chocolate.

  • TheAweDude

    You can counter a Bolas with this card.Talk about being hoisted by your own petard.

    • Kaiser

      and you can hit him with the red one of this, yeah, pretty bad plan (?)

    • Jay Kilian

      the red, blue, and black ones all hit Bolas. Counter, destroy, or burn.

  • jaya

    Lets hope all counters from now on have counter target blue spell, let them have their own taste.
    Anyways rip jace…Nicol showing whos the boss.

    • Jordan

      From what I gather, he’s confirmed to be in Ixalan.. so I’m sad.

    • Jay Kilian

      Defeat Dead.

  • Jordan

    Here’s a funny story. A telepath thinks that because he talked to Ugin that he can get in and read any old dragon planeswalkers mind. Welcome to Bolas’s territory. Lesson to be learned Jace. There’s always someone better.

    • John Scott

      well bolas did this to him in the past to so he kinda already knows bolas is better

      • Jordan

        Was it bolas or tezzeret? I thought it was the latter, which is why Lili hates Tezz. Either way, either he escapes or Bolas decides to not kill him.

        • Nathan Harviala

          It was Bolas that thoroughly wrecked Jace’s attempt at mind reading/manipulation/protection. Tezzeret brought him along for the protection, and after failing, tortured Jace.

  • Kaiser

    In modern or legacy his can be budget sideboard for jace and snap caster, but to be fair is the one is the “weaker” i mean counter blue is like “counter a counter spell/jace/flash-thing”

  • Nathan Harviala

    We can hope that this is the end of the Jace era. He’s been getting way too much attention over the past decade, so let’s hope it’s for good.

    • Jordan

      He’s in the next block.

      • Nathan Harviala

        DAMN!

        • Cthulhooo

          He becomes Tom Hanks from Castaway in Ixalan.

      • Robby

        Source?

  • CMK

    Because Defeat doesn’t mean dead. On another note, this card is way more humorous than it should be.

  • Shagoth

    This will be the most expensive card in the set.
    People who hate Jace will collect multiple copies of this card and make a wall of it.

  • Murilo Mazza

    I prefer a Negate than scrying for another of this card.

    • Jay Kilian

      You could have this in the board for control matchups, not that there’s much control in Standard at the moment.

      • Murilo Mazza

        Yes, problem is I don’t see room for this, so Negate probably would be more appropriate.

        • name moniker

          the only benefit is that this can hit blue creatures so take that for what you will

          • Murilo Mazza

            This would help against Thing in the Ice and Torrential Gearhulk, I don’t believe there is room though. It will depend on meta

  • Jacob Kodicovic

    No! Don’t drink the Kool-Aid, Jace!

  • Zombie

    Am I finally getting my wish?

    Is it happening?

    Is the Gatewatch donezo?

    Wizards pls.

    • Happy The Cat

      m8 we all know I called it, death of superman style, heroes die, villain dies, and then more come to fill their place.

    • jane smithers

      No he is in the next block. Gatwatch is not going anywhere. They likely are just not going to travel as a group. I for one liked it better when I had the same people to follow and watch develop. I am looking forward to following Vraska about as much as I do my next dentist appointment.

  • Happy The Cat

    I mean I’ll still prefer REB but at least this will be modern playable.

  • Erica M

    I can very much see some Legacy sideboard potential in here…

    • potatogod442

      If it was one mana yes…

      But we have a card named counterspell in legacy. (painless dual lands made getting that extra blue alot easier)

      • Erica M

        Sure, but counterspell is mainboarded in decks. Jace’s Defeat can replace it in the sideboard

  • Friedrich

    I have no idea why this is not 1 mana. We got way stronger counterspells for 1 or even 0. Why does this have to be 2 mana?
