Dark Intimations


Each opponent sacrifices a creature or planeswalker, then discards a card. You return a creature or planeswalker card from your graveyard to your hand, the draw a card.

When you cast a Bolas planeswalker spell, exile Dark Imitations from your graveyard. That planeswalker enters the battlefield with an additional loyalty counter on it.

Qolorful on My deck DROPPED from 87% ...

Well they are still applicable in the sense of rules that require you to control a planeswalker. Such as Gideon of the Trials emblem, and Dark Intimations

I would add more Chandra but I only have one and I don't want to drop 20 bucks on another. As for Dark Intimations I don't think I'd get full value on it do I'm Gonna leave it out for now

I don't really like torment of scarabs personally. I would +1 Chandra torch of defiance and add one Dark Intimations maybe have torment of scarabs in the sideboard against longer games such as games vs control and the like.

iAzire on Archenemy: Nicol Bolas

I figured I would have to build Bolas to be stronger, and probably build it to be a little more competitive. I'm thinking fast mana, a legit cEDH mana base, etc.

The other decks will be cheaper because they are either Mono or two color. Probably won't include fast mana.

My issue is figuring out a strategy that each character can run with. I obviously don't want two characters to run the same strategy, and I would like it to be thematic. Liliana might go with a Zombie token swarm style, Chandra with Burn, etc.

I am already planning on including as many on theme cards as possible. I figure Bolas can run Dark Intimations. The deck could also run Jace's Defeat, Liliana's Defeat, and Chandra's Defeat. Each deck will run Hour of Devastation full art Basics.

After that, I will find fitting cards for the strategy, then choose the best printing possible.


I would like to stick to Commander rules as much as possible, meaning only 1 of any card, except Basic Lands. The only thing I'm thinking about changing is having the Planeswalker in each deck actually be the Commander. I think it fits better.

I had forgotten about Dark Intimations. That's something to consider.

The access to draw is what led me to only running one Bolas.

I am debating using a Dark Intimations in case Chandra runs through a Bolas, among other benefits of the spell.

I don't think you need The Scorpion God in there. The only thing that generates -1/-1 counters is the Ammit Eternal. I would do another Dark Intimations or a second Swarm Intelligence. And, is there a fetch card for Nicol Bolas, God-Pharaoh?
