Nicol Bolas, the Arisen Discussion

Rhadamanthus on Can a double-faced card copying ...

It can transform, but depending on the specific cards involved you might not get the result you're going for.

As you said in your question, only double-faced cards can transform and a copy effect will overwrite whatever face is currently showing. This means if you turn Nicol Bolas, the Ravager  Flip into a copy of Thing in the Ice  Flip and transform it, the card itself will turn over to the Nicol Bolas, the Arisen side but will still be a Thing in the Ice  Flip. If you remove Metamorphic Alteration then you have a problem: a planeswalker with no loyalty counters (because it didn't re-enter the battlefield), which will be put directly into the graveyard.

However, if you turn Bolas into a copy of Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip instead and trigger the ability, you follow the "exile and return transformed" instructions and get a planeswalker Bolas with the proper starting loyalty.

Also, Nicol Bolas, the Arisen's art reminds me too much of a certain character when he laughed.
