I'd recommend Bontu's Monument cuz most of your cards have high CMC, and I'd swap Darkblast with Tragic Slip. Besides that it looks like a fun deck.

Plague Wind costs way to much mana, Mutilate would be way more effective, same goes for Liliana Vess. Liliana of the Dark Realms has better effects in combo with your other cards. (Her Ult is great, and most ppl won't race to kill her.)

Bloodhunter Bat is also kinda meh, I'd swap it for some black 1 or 2 drop.

Here is my attempt to figure out my "7 by 9" classification of my deck (Referenced article about "7 by 9"). It appears I've slightly reversed it and have a "9 by 7" ratio. Some cards also overlap, but I put them in their main use case category.

After looking at the list though I only have 7 categories of cards which means I could look to add a new category by removing some of the weaker cards in each of the existing categories.

Target Protection (10)

Removal (8)

Tutor (9)

Draw (10)

Revive (8)

Utility (9)

Meld (6)

Mana (5 + 35 - 1)

Liliana Vess would be a great addition. I actually need to update the deck a bit. I just tweaked it a bit and got the land count up to 37 from 33. 33 lands for a tri color heavy costing commander was just not cutting it.

I made a similar deck to this, but mine is more control and has less creatures. I would reccomend Liliana Vess because using her to tutor will make your deck more consistent. With her on the field you can always grab a god pharaoh or a big creature when you need them. That goes for tutors in general but lili is good because you can re-use the ability

Liliana Vess would be a good planeswalker for this deck

I see you have Lux Cannon in the maybe-board. If that direction interests you as an alternate plan, there's a few related cards that make a fun combo plan.

Titan Forge is another potentially fun card in that general plan.

One of the things I like about that plan is that all of the pieces are pretty good even if you only have 1 or 2 of them. If you happen to be able to get enough pieces (with say something like Liliana Vess or Ring of Three Wishes, you just win on the spot.

phc on Archenemy: Nicol Bolas

This is a project I have been working on too. My goal to to finish putting together the rest of the gatewatch decks and a few more arch-foe decks as well. After going though the decks in the boxed set I came up with a list of criteria to help me balance the decks against each other. As each deck contains at least one legendary creature you could use those as a "commander" for the deck.

  • The Arch-Foe deck can use up to fifteen rare cards, and up to twenty uncommon cards.
  • The Ally decks can use up to ten rare cards, and up to fifteen uncommon cards.
  • Rare cards are restricted to only one copy per deck.
  • Uncommon cards are restricted to only two copies per deck.
  • Each deck should contain one Legendary creature.
  • The Ally Planeswalkers should cost between 3-5 CMC.
  • The Arch-Foe Planeswalker should cost between 4-7 CMC.
  • Each deck should be built along a particular theme.

These are the decks I am currently constructing

I expect I'm not the first person to say this but I want to make Commander decks for the Archenemy: Nicol Bolas set. I figure it would be a lot of fun and something nifty to have.

I will be wanting all decks in paper, as that's when they will be played. I will want them (semi)balanced, as in the Archenemy doesn't win every game but has a good chance.

I figure this also gives me an opportunity to add Gatewatch members that aren't playable in the box set. Ajani, Jace, and Liliana are all missing.

Doing this creates a Commander decision issue. Would I use the creature cards? If I did that, Ajani couldn't have a deck.

There is also the possibility of using their namesake cards as the Commander. This would give it a better feeling of Planeswalkers battling as each would at least be in the Command Zone and would be much easier to cast each game.

Along the same line of using a Planeswalker as the Commander, I could just pick their best version to use that.

The question would then be, what to do for Nissa and Ajani? Would I use Mono Walkers, or their Multi colored cards for more variety. What supports this idea is that Nissa's Precon deck is .

I believe Ajani would probably be the better strategy, but fits thematically as that was the Walker released in the Ajani v. Bolas Duel Deck.

Anybody have thoughts, opinions, help to offer? Commander choices will be important, whether the decks have other Planeswalker cards in them matters, overall deck strategy for each character would help.
