In Bolas's Clutches Discussion

I love the deck, so much so that I'm building it paper right now! Just one question, what is your opinion on using In Bolas's Clutches as a sort of flash spot removal/politics machine?

Arch of Orazca is kind of bad for this deck, you're right. However, I did play test this deck with some of the sideboard cards. I took out 2 Censors and put in 2 Mirror Images. I also had In Bolas's Clutches in and, while I did have it in my hand early on, I was able to draw the game out long enough to use it as well as Lay Claim. To make the deck faster, leaving out In Bolas's Clutches out is probably a better choice.

Thanks for your interest SirHuggle
I hadn’t considered Arch of Orazca. This deck never has more then two non-land permanents at a time and really cares about islands. So this card gives nothing but downside until at least turn 8 just to finally give the option of spending 6 mana to draw a card. Seems really bad to me?

Hi marcosaletti! I like the deck list you have here. I think you should embrace stealing your opponent's permanents more than winning with pure damage with Blightsteel Colossus. Don't get me wrong, Blightsteel Colossus is great, but having all of your opponents concede as soon as you take full control of the game can be just as satisfying. I like the Isochron Scepter + Dramatic Reversal combo that can potentially give you infinite mana, but I think you could improve this deck by taking out some underperforming cards like Lodestone Golem, Elixir of Immortality, and In Bolas's Clutches for cards like Mycosynth Lattice, Unwinding Clock, and Sculpting Steel. I also have a Memnarch deck that runs the same type of strategy. If you'd ever want to take a look at my list for some card examples, you're more than welcome to do so any time!

It would be helpful to post a deck link so we can see what you are working with.
To start, what is more important to you, flavour or overall power? If flavour is more important, there are a number of spells with Nicol Bolas quotes you can use. Some top contenders for flavour include:
Neheb, the Eternal - which has the advantage of being a fairly solid card.
Apex of Power - super big, flashy spell that oozes with flavour, but is not the most playable card.
There are the assorted planeswalker defeat cards, which, while quite flavourful, are pretty mediocre.
Fraying Omnipotence - another flavorful card that is not great.
Patient Rebuilding is not great as a draw engine, but still kind of fun.
Soul Manipulation provides graveyard recursion and a limited counterspell.

@venok: I run In Bolas's Clutches for the flavor and versatility. Stealing planeswalkers that are ready to ult is nice. I also tried to avoid a lot of steal cards, mustly just copy and play stuff from library/graveyards so it's more fun to play against.
