Jayce, Architect of Thought

So, I pulled a Jace, Architect of Thought in a draft a while back and wanted to sell him, but didn't. Anyways, my friend gave me a holiday box and I pulled him a second time!

I'm thinking about getting two more and making a deck around him, izzet, and Worldfire. Do you have any suggestions on what to do or what kind of deck to build?
try in Standard Deck Help below
or maybe Cards and Combos

Your best bet at Worldfire in standard is probably with Epic Experiment, which will allow you to a burn spell, then cast Worldfire on top of it.
you need Hypersonic Dragon for that

I'd go for ramp into Omniscience
or instead of ramp try and protect Jace so he can ultimate into Omniscience

Worldfire while you have either a Thragtusk or an Oblivion Ring exiling one of your creatures is pretty much an instant win.

My personal favorite combo is using a burn spell like Flame Jab with Spellweaver Helix in order to cast it cheaply and get your win in at the same time.

No, you're casting them as part of resolving Epic Experiment. From it's rulings:


"You cast the cards one at a time, choosing modes, targets, and so on. The last card you cast will be the first one to resolve."
"When casting an instant or sorcery card this way, ignore timing restrictions based on the card’s type. Other timing restrictions, such as “Cast [this card] only during combat,” must be followed."

My personal favorite combo is using a burn spell like Flame Jab with Spellweaver Helix in order to cast it cheaply and get your win in at the same time.

If you're looking into older formats, I suggest this. I love the deck.
I would think you could do worldfire with Jace's ultimate.  You just stack it so whatever creature or burn spell you pulled from their deck resolves after world fire clears everything and sets them to 1 life.
ah, you meant such a big Epic Experiment, that'll work

Unfortunately, VCLs do not currently have the tools necessary to take moderation actions directly. VCLs submit their actions to ORCs, who then actually perform the action. This processing can take between a few minutes and several hours, depending on how busy/attentive the ORCs are.

If you see something that needs VCL attention, please use this thread to make a request and a VCL will look at it as soon as possible. CoC violations should be reported to Customer Service using the "report post" button. Please do not disrupt the thread by making requests of either kind in-thread.
