Kalstrax, Shade Lord
Legendary Creature: Specter
Other Specter creatures get +1/+1 and Voidmaster 2 (Pay 2 life, this creature gains shroud and is unblockable until end of turn)
Voidmaster 10 (Pay 10 life, this creature gains shroud and is unblockable until end of turn)
Whenever ~ deals combat damage to a player, that player loses 7 life, discards 7 cards, and sacrifices a permanent.
It's a Lord for the underappreciated Specter Tribe, which would like to be able to be unblockable as many have deals damage effects like Hypnotic Specter or Nightveil Specter . I also like the idea of throwing Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker ultimate at people in exchange for some life. Minus 6 permanents because that seemed a bit overpowered.

Gideon had 5 echantments, 1 artifact and 1 inatant in the spellbook.
Anyhow I Love Grixis and Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker is one of my favorit planeswalkers! I really enjoy suffocate my opponents resorses and win via a combo. Hers's my list:
Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker - I Love everything about him (exept the manacost)
Cruel Ultimatum - This is so me, suffocateing my opponent while getting card advantage!
Narset's Reversal - so you want to cast a cool spell? Let me cast it insead!!!
Time Walk - haha No you will not get to play.
Demonic Tutor - I prep for almost any situation.
Kolaghan's Command - This is a 2 for 1 and I like that.
Counterspell - Denied.
Damnation - might be more efficent boardsweepers but I like this one

Hello there Senomar, I really appreciate the response! :)
Yeah i have been on the fence of Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker and hes definetly gonna go at some point!
I feel like languish is fine in MY meta, not that often that it will kill any of my own creatures as i run so few and it also kills Meren of Clan Nel Toth and other 4 toughness creatures in my meta :) As for Fiery Confluence theres not alot of artifacts that it would kill so i would go with radiant flames instead of it :P
If i go with the reasoning that Counterspell is bad in 3 colours then i should probably take out Cryptic Command aswell, but my manabase is trying to accomedate the color intensive spells i play, reason for not alot of utility lands. Except for Tectonic Edge which i want to be a wasteland later :)
Recently cut Go for the Throat and i know its kinda controversial with me just saying that theres not alot of artifacts in the format but had to try cutting a spot removal for Thought Erasure . Tho now i think about it i should probably have cut Terminate instead.
Maze of Ith , is definetly a card some people play, but i really dont like it even tho it can save you alot of damage.
As for the more expensive suggestions, i really want them all... Snapcaster Mage , Liliana, the Last Hope , Wasteland but money ;) Force of Will is a card im really not that big a fan of getting 1. because of the price 2. Don't like the card disadvantage it can give as my meta can be quite grindy. (Ofc i know its a amazing card) Force of Negation or Negate are considerations instead :)

Hello my friend ! Really nice deck ! The only suggestion I would make is cutting Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker . The CCM is way to high and this card is 99% a dead card in hand in the format. Furthermore you already have quiet some kills in your deck (especially your commander).
I'm not that sure about Languish too since it kills all the creatures you have in the deck and your commander. Fiery Confluence or Radiant Flames seems much appropriated if you want to keep the same amount of wrath.
I'm far from beeing a pro player so these are more an opinions rather than advices ! Have a nice day !
