ebonyks your deck look great, when I've started this deck I want to make a stax deck but I found out it was more fun mixing all the planeswalker and discovering new interaction between all of them. I need to be honest, Jace, Cunning Castaway seem better than I think.

stensiagamekeeper on Opinion on Nicol Bolas, Dragon-God

Probably the most important thing is to make sure the vast majority of your lands produce black mana and that none can't produce red, blue or black. Besides that, if you can maneuver your first 4 turns so that he'll survive until the turn after you play him then you are very ahead ( Ritual of Soot helps with this). There are some combos with Jace, Cunning Castaway that can literally go infinite with some other pieces but they aren't actually necessary.

You would get two copies of Nicol Bolas.

201.4b If an ability of an object refers to that object by name, and an object with a different name gains that ability, each instance of the first name in the gained ability that refers to the first object by name should be treated as the second name.

Don't forget that you can make a card name automatically link by putting it between a pair of [square brackets]. ie. Nicol Bolas, Dragon-God and Jace, Cunning Castaway .

Just so you know as long as you have enough mana you can take infinite turns with cards like Beacon of Tomorrows and Nexus of Fate since they shuffle back into your library and you can just re tutor them every turn. That allows you to win off of upkeep triggers or just infinite loyalty abilities on planeswalkers like Jace Beleren Jace, the Mind Sculptor Jace, Cunning Castaway . Or you can slowly assemble other combo pieces like Rings of Brighthearth and Basalt Monolith and search up and use cards like Stroke of Genius to win.

The exact wording of the new Bolas card's static ability is "Nicol Bolas, Dragon-God has all loyalty abilities of all other planeswalkers on the battlefield."

As mentioned, any instance of a card's name in its abilities should be read as "This Object" when another object gains that ability. The same applies to Gideon Jura 's 0 ability, for example.

Nicol Bolas, Dragon-God's copy of Jace, Cunning Castaway 's third ability will make copies of Nicol Bolas, Dragon-God, not Jace.

Please link your cards when you ask; it makes things easier. However the new Bolas might not be in the database yet so let's see.

Jace, Cunning Castaway

The new Bolas basically says something like "this planeswalker has the activated loyalty abilities of all planeswalkers on the battlefield". (*that's not an actual quote, I haven't seen the spoiler)

The last ability for Jace reads "−5: Create two tokens that are copies of Jace, Cunning Castaway, except they’re not legendary." but whenever a card refers to itself by name, it means "this card" or "this spell" or "this permanent" as contextually appropriate. So what it could be read as is "−5: Create two tokens that are copies of THIS PERMANENT, except they’re not legendary."

That, as you see, would work just fine. The actual rule from the Comprehensive Rules currently is as so:
201.4. Text that refers to the object it's on by name means just that particular object and not any other objects with that name, regardless of any name changes caused by game effects.

Najeela, the Blade-Blossom is a good alternate commander, she's pretty cute.

Akroan Skyguard , Akiri, Line-Slinger , Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder , Sun Titan , Swords to Plowshares , Mother of Runes (the eternal masters version), Damia, Sage of Stone , Jace, Cunning Castaway .

Fist of Suns could be altered to have Thanos' handsome self on it.

There was a shirtless men tribal deck that got a lot of attention, so you could check there for some inspiration.
