bloodbraid elf is secretly a dud (and no, it is not a countermeasure to jace, because in this format you can play jace alongside tarmogoyf and friends, and hazoret should be better for jund)

jace is actually a midrange card more than a control card (see also legacy) so it should be able to occupy the same role in modern, the issue is that it likely becomes one of the best midrange cards to the point that it defines the midrange mirror (impressive, because blue is not really conducive to midrange in modern traditionally), thus pushing out many of the other options (suspect that temur is the best build, although sultai should not be too far behind)

Bloodbraid isn't relevant because the card in jund that's actually broken is Deathrite, and we dont have that in this format.

As for Jace, what I'm interested in seeing is if we'll end up seeing more true midrange decks in top 8s.

esper and bant are the other options and you get to play gideon, ally of zendikar as another haymaker (also can conveniently answer jace)

creeping tar pit becomes more legit as well
