Nicol Bolas, God-Pharaoh Discussion

Thanks for the suggestions. First, my main win con is usually combat damage with a bit of jank thrown in. I use a lot of my spells to keep the board small, but I've avoided running actual board wipes. Its a personal preference thing.

Second, Kiora, Master of the Depths does some self mill, which might not make any sense, but with the cards i'm running for recursion it can actually work out. Cultivator's Caravan can become a 5/5 creature, and that means it interacts with kiora and Jeskai Ascendancy.

Third, Docent of Perfection  Flip was getting cut already. I put Nicol Bolas, God-Pharaoh in its place.

So, yeah, I guess it is a spells deck with creatures. I'm still working on the mana base, but its been low on my priority list. Any big changes means reevaluating a bunch of other cards, and probably making exactly the cuts you've suggested. I really need to do some live testing first.

The only reason im not running either or both nicol bolas cards is to play around with Karn Liberated. I actually prefer bolas over Karn and need to grab a Nicol Bolas, God-Pharaoh for this deck, but at least Karn does fun things.

Yeah I like nexus of fate, too. I could be running more extra turn cards, but the 2 im using seem to be enough for now.

I like doing things differently, im glad you like it.

So you played this deck a bit different than I, and honestly I really love what you did. It's chaos and spellslinging all in one! +1 for sure.

I noticed that you have Nicol Bolas in your maybe board, I'd like to suggest you ammend that to Nicol Bolas, God-Pharaoh or just add him in addition. He's been an allstar in my Jodah deck (Jodah's Fire Sale!), I also had Etali, Primal Storm out and man that was insane playing everyone's deck but my own.

Speaking of your maybe board, Legacy Weapon is a champ.

Also lands... Crystal Quarry and Cascading Cataracts are definite includes in every iteration of Jodah.

One last thing, dude did you see that new card Nexus Of Fate from M19? It's going to be fire in this deck!

I would probably also have a Nicol Bolas, God-Pharaoh since it also steals stuff and makes your opponents exile stuff from hand. I just find it be a good addition to the vast majority of decks, also for card draw i would recommend cards like Mind's Eye or Arcanis the Omnipotent

Hey guys, as mentioned in the title, I have a Nicol Bolas, God-Pharaoh Brawl deck that I need a little help with.

Primarily I am looking for seasoned Brawl or Standard players to check out the list to see if there are any must-haves that I didn't include, if there are any cards I have in the deck that aren't so useful, and just generally receive some feedback.

Most of my experience comes from EDH, with a bit of Modern so I have a decent grasp on deck building. I just need a little help because I'm not very familiar with Standard and Brawl so it's hard for me to assess the power level of cards relative to the format.

As always, all feedback is greatly appreciated and I look forward to hearing from the community!

Nicol Bolas, God-Pharaoh is really good in commander also why not Angrath, the Flame-Chained instead of Angrath, Minotaur Pirate. In general, your planeswalker pics seem odd and there are very good planeswalkers not included.
