Nicol Bolas Discussion

In the original Nicol Bolas card art, it depicts the elder dragon gripping a book with a five fingered hand, but in the art of Chandra's Defeat, it only shows him with three, what happened to him? Is it childhood trauma which made him so self punishment?

This might be too late, but in case it isn't: this feels like a Kaalia deck with just the barest splash for Marchesa. I feel like you could be abusing Marchesa a bit more. You don't get Dethrone triggers for creatures that Kaalia puts into play, so your fatties are going to be vulnerable for a round unless you have other ways to put counters on them.
Speaking of which, I think Cathars' Crusade would play great in here. Also Archangel of Thune. Sunscorch Regent, Ob Nixilis, the Fallen and Ob Nixilis, Unshackled all bring their own counters to the party and work with Kaalia.
I love Nicol Bolas in all varieties, but this doesn't feel like the right deck for him (or at least, not the Planeswalker - dropping Nicol Bolas into play off Kaalia sounds downright filthy to me even if you don't pay his upkeep). It's really hard to justify expensive noncreature spells in a deck like this since you're already running expensive creatures. Ajani Goldmane is much easier on the mana and puts counters on all your creatures! Something to consider.
If this is already too late, I hope you had fun at your league. Sounds interesting.

Blazfemur Nicol Bolas is definitely a good card and you can slot it in if you want. However I think he is better in a Scion of the Ur-Dragon deck because here he hits the board doesn't do anything and consistently drains your mana. Whereas in a scion deck you pay two for him attack and send him to the yard.

A few cards that seem like auto-includes:
Tormenting Voice for the Ugin interactions
Cruel Ultimatum because the art is amazing
Maybe some Liliana card
This deck seems really really really cool, upvote from me!

From what I can see:
Mono-: I get 8 cards out of this. Pretty good.
Admiral Beckett Brass: A lot of pirates.
Other: I wanted to build Azor and/or Zacama, but idk...Bolas and have my attention, and are fighting over my devotion.
