What I like about Ixalan: the uneven color distribution of factions. It gives me hope for wedge colored factions (and legendaries), since you dont have to build an entire plane around it. What I slightly dislike about Ixalan: the Jace lands. A possible solution: print the lands with and without Jace. Maybe have the Jace lands be a bit rarer. That way everybody is happy, it adds a sense of time to the landscape and people can chase the Jaces.
I don’t get the Jace basic land hate.
We’ve had people show up on basic lands before.
And on most of the pieces, you wouldn’t even know it was Jace had we not told you.
And there are literally over a hundred other basic land choices, including three others in Ixalan, to choose from.
And many people actually enjoy the Jace basic lands.
So come on. There has to be better things to focus your ire on.
