Lately, we’ve been playing a lot of Standard to check out the new War of the Spark cards, but we’re changing things up this week and heading into Modern to play a sweet new combo deck built around one of the 36 planeswalkers from War of the Spark: Jace, Wielder of Mysteries. The idea of the deck is simple: we’re building a janky version of Splinter Twin (i.e. a two-card “I win” combo) that involves sticking a Jace, Wielder of Mysteries and then exiling our entire deck with the help of a single card like Leveler or Mirror of Fate, which in turn will allow us to tick up Jace, Wielder of Mysteries to draw a card and win with the help of Jace’s Laboratory Maniac-esque static ability. Otherwise, we’ve got plenty of cantrips to help find our combo, some redundant backup combo pieces to increase consistency, and some counterspells to fight through our opponent’s disruption. Is Jace, Wielder of Mysteries with Leveler the second coming of Splinter Twin in (budget) Modern? Let’s get to the video and find out!
