Cruel Ultimatum Discussion

Alright. As to what I would cut:
Utter End : It's a bit too little mana to be cheated out, yet too costly to be worth it.
Villainous Wealth : 'X' costs can't be abused with Jodah, so I'd remove it.
Genesis Wave : Same deal.
Enlightened Tutor : There are no artifacts outside of a couple of gearhulks and Magister Sphinx , and the only enchantments that seem worth finding are Rhystic Study and Omniscience . It doesn't seem too potent in here.
Enter the Infinite : You can't actually win immediately when this resolves (unless I'm missing something). When this is the case, it's not quite worth it.
Nissa's Revelation : Given how many ways this deck can refill its hand, consider that this doesn't add to the board state, reveals a card in your hand, and is a turn off of doing something else.
Terastodon : I've never really liked this card. Just personal preference. It's a vanilla 9/9 that doesn't do much outside of removal.
Vindicate : I prefer Beast Within or Swords to Plowshares when given the option. You have Anguished Unmaking , Cruel Ultimatum , Despark , Assassin's Trophy , and tutors to find them, sorcery speed is without use. More interaction in a deck like this seems as if it's a juxtaposition to the gameplan.
That's all I have for what may be banished, however, I have one recommendation:
Treachery seems as if it would be awesome in here. Steal a creature then cast something huge. A lot of value here.

Gain control of up to four lands. For each land you gain control of that is tapped, create two 1/1 white Warrior creature tokens.

Gideon had 5 echantments, 1 artifact and 1 inatant in the spellbook.
Anyhow I Love Grixis and Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker is one of my favorit planeswalkers! I really enjoy suffocate my opponents resorses and win via a combo. Hers's my list:
Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker - I Love everything about him (exept the manacost)
Cruel Ultimatum - This is so me, suffocateing my opponent while getting card advantage!
Narset's Reversal - so you want to cast a cool spell? Let me cast it insead!!!
Time Walk - haha No you will not get to play.
Demonic Tutor - I prep for almost any situation.
Kolaghan's Command - This is a 2 for 1 and I like that.
Counterspell - Denied.
Damnation - might be more efficent boardsweepers but I like this one

Super fun to hear about SFM being unbanned and look i forward to seeing "new" brews with it..... I personally am sad about Faithless Looting because I had fun with it in a janky Spellweaver Helix brew with Cruel Ultimatum and retrace sorceries...by no means competitive but F.L. definitely helped.

Instead of tapping down creatures, you could play more removal spells such as Fatal Push , Cast Down , Go for the Throat . Also, if you are really going for the memes, you can try playing Cruel Ultimatum to cheat out with Wildfire Eternal (imagine the look on your opponent's face when they thought they would just be taking 1 damage from the wildfire eternal, and the only card in your hand is Cruel Ultimatum .

Thanks for your feedback MrGuizee666.
Force of Despair seems nice and fun card but Its very situational plus I have to exile a Black Card from my Hand.
This can be:
90% of these spells are Instants and have a Removal ability.
I can only imagine using it on an opponent´s EOT exiling a Damnation to save mana on my next turn.
I would be glad if you have many reasons to put it in the 75 cause i like no mana spells. :)
