Nicol Bolas, God-Pharaoh Discussion

If you're playing control and superfriends why not Nicol Bolas, God-Pharaoh?

And just what amazing decks did you build from those cards you cracked ...??

You can't play Sword of Feast and Famine, or Chalice of the Void in Standard.

Noxious Gearhulk doesn't see much play, and you'd need at least another to make it a worthwhile include.

Same with Nicol Bolas, God-Pharaoh.

Lucky cracks don't give you enough cards to build a competitive deck. Thanks for proving my point.

But Argy Im an exception to that rule of cracking packs lol.

During BFZ I once got 2x packs of BFZ as a Christmas gift from my brother and opened a Windswept Heath expedition. Another time I once went to a draft back in Oath of the Gatewatch and proceeded to open 2x Expeditions in my draft packs.

From a kaladesh prerelease I opened a Sword of Feast and Famine alongside the 2 mythics Noxious Gearhulk, and Metallurgic Summonings have also opened a number of good foils too such as a Chandra, Torch of Defiance, and a foil The Scarab God.

I also opened a Chalice of the Void invocation about 3 weeks ago from a lone Aether Revolt pack lol. Then finally a couple days ago I got a Hazoret the Fervent and a Nicol Bolas, God-Pharaoh from 3 booster packs.

I just love cracking packs, but I dont go overboard with them either. Im just very lucky it seems. However I think your right that for most people and most times still that cracking packs isnt the best answer.

Ah. Also maybe go with 4x Attune with Aether (everyone else is haha.) and one plains. Instead of Commune with Dinosaurs.

I'm doing that with 1 swamp and 1 mountain in my g/u Deeproot champion deck for 1x Nicol Bolas, God-Pharaoh And 1x Vraska, Relic Seeker. Hopefully that along with 4x Aether Hub will make the Mana available readily when needed.

Dimir Control (Hostage Situation)

Standard PickleNutz


deck, Seeking for serious relationship

Committed spells only

First, check out my dimir control deck.

Second, and why this post exists in the first place, I want to add red to the deck.

Heres why!

  • I want to put in Saheeli Rai to test combos with Hostage Taker. I feel like creatures my copies for a turn for free and being able to use the copies to steal and cast an enemies creatures is just too exciting not to try.

  • I want to add Nicol Bolas, God-Pharaoh. He is big, he is a game winner, and honestly I think he looks cool.

So, heres what I need help with.

1.) what do I cut from the current deck?

2.) what should I add in red that would make the deck better?

3.) how do I optimize the lands with the added color?

I will likely make the changes this week and test them with friends but still play the original deck list at FNM, but next week will use the new brew.

Normally Im pretty good at the brewing process, but... you guys are a pretty awesome community... and I like your help.

Thanks ahead of time!


I would it... 10/10

I am partial to Ramos, Dragon Engine. I feel the red is a necessary, if splashy inclusion for planeswalkers such as Ral Zarek, Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker, and Nicol Bolas, God-Pharaoh. Conflux is also a great card to have to seek out nearly all your combo pieces at the very end.

Oh.. I just figured out. Since you are in those colors. You can also play Nicol Bolas, God-Pharaoh, Maelstrom Wanderer and Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder. So you can maximize triggers from Kaervek and Vial Smasher :)
