Quote from orlouge82 »Quote from Cranial_extraction »Jace is unbanned because he does not break the turn 4 rule. With a multitude of decks being able to win turn 2-4 it makes no sense to ban cards that hit play turn 4 and do not immediately win the game.
Yes, but this has been true for YEARS. It's just way too coincidental that Wizards would choose to unban the card a month before their next Masters set that headlines JtMS as one of the top cards -- ESPECIALLY after Wizards' most recent Masters set has failed so spectacularly.
Not to say they don't see benefits on sales here, but the timing makes sense when we assume they wanted to unban Jace for a while now, but waited until the supply could come at least a little closer to meet the expected demand.
Also, I don't expect them to re-ban Jace anytime soon - they have to know what backlash that would inevitably create.
