So as many of you know, Jace Beleren will come back with a new look and new abilities in Worldwake. So what do you guys think his new skills will be? Will he be better or worse than the current Jace?

My guess would be one of the abilities that's common in blue:

Card draw
Taking control of permanents
Counter magic
Taking extra turns

Card draw and mill are most likely out because they're both on Jace Beleron. Taking control of permanents has been done on other Planeswalkers, so that ability is probably out. Bouncing permanents on a Planeswalker seems really good. It seems like it would have to be a subtracting ability unless the Planeswalker was on the more expensive end. Because the abilities can only be used at sorcery speed, counter magic on a planeswalker would only work if it was something like "Counter the next spell target player casts". Maybe to make that ability a little more reasonable it would say "until the end of that player's next end step". Either way, that would definitely be a subtracting ability. Taking extra turns on a Planeswalker just seems too good. Maybe as an ultimate that took three turns of building loyalty to get into.

I find Jace to be my least favorite planeswalker. Know Chandra can blow you up, can Jace..... do that.

He could be white/blue. If his + ability was similar to narrow escape, i wouldn't be too suprised. I think making an opponents spells cost more during his/her next turn would be a decent middle negative ability. maybe even "until your next turn, whenever an opponent casts a spell, you may draw a card unless he or she pays 1." That actually wouldn't be a bad + ability! And i agree that his ultimate will be the hardest to peg, but i'm not sure it would be turns. That kind of ultimate would probably be best left to Karn, since he is the only known being in magic to travel through time. And since wizards has trademarked a few new names (Scars of Mirrodin, New Phyrexia, etc.) the possibility of seeing a time-'walker wouldn't be completely outlandish. I feel that a Jace in zendikar would be highly specialized, think along the lines of tezzeret and nissa, even the new chandra. A jace that could search up an instant and play it something like "-3: Until your next turn, if an opponent casts a spell, you may pay X. If you do, search your library for an instant card with converted mana cost X, cast it, then shuffle your library." That would seem like the best way to protect a new planeswalker with an empty board. I'm basically at a loss as to what his first and last ability would be, but i could see his middle ability being a sort of counterspell or something.
