Quote from abraxasJace's abilities are suppose to have synergy with Innistrad block mechanics, ie. the graveyard. The reason why the first ability is opposed to the 2nd, is that while you may want to mill yourself to do shenanigans with whatever graveyard cards from INN work well with it, there may come a point late in the game where you don't want to mill yourself for 10 any longer, or you are looking for one single card left in your library with very little cards left. While this is purely speculative, it makes sense from that stand point, rather than in the context of a vacuum.
Quote from abraxasSo lame.
Also, wouldn't milling your opponent just help them out, given Innistrad is a graveyard-themed block?!
It's kind of another moment when we throw our hands up and go "DAMMIT universe, why you gotta always make me look bad in front of everyone?".
Quote from Illuvator BrightstarYou have no idea what type of graveyard matters cards will be in the block. Making assumptions in this game are generally bad ideas.
Quote from RiggerHis abilities are not connected with Jace's Archivist.
Quote from Big Name VirusI want one for the design. It's ridiculously well done in my opinion
Quote from TyrannReally? Brainstorming for free every turn wasn't bad enough? Now for 1 more than JTMS you can Glimpse your opponent every turn for free? Yeah, this won't be pricey at all.....
