Shoutout to DukeNicky for the deck idea. Seriously, he made the original list and he deserves credit for this as much as myself.

Basically, this is what I think fighting Nicol Bolas would actually be like. The most insanely unfair, one-sided fight imaginable.

Your objective:

Defeat Nicol Bolas!

Also, to make it even less fair and more realistic, I've come up with some special rules.

Special Rules:

Bolas always goes first.

If Bolas would draw Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker or Nicol Bolas while he already has one in play, shuffle it into the library, then draw a card.

Whenever Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker or Nicol Bolas is put into a graveyard from anywhere, shuffle it into the library.

If more than one Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker would be in Bolas's opening hand, shuffle all but one into the deck, then draw that many cards.

If Nicol Bolas deals combat damage to you, you lose the game.

Good luck! You'll need it...

Now I just need to find $42,000 so I can BE Nicol Bolas.

zquirrelz You could just print out proxies. It's cheaper, and I doubt that this deck is legal anywhere.

RYNO_Ross that is true but then I would feel like a pretender, a big fat phony.

What about Mind Shatter alongside Rakdos's Return?

Edit: Oh crap. You already have Mind broken!!

zquirrelz you are but a pretender when you attempt to emulate the Great Nicol Bolas. Know your place in the presence of the Great One, Worm!

So diabolical. The deck reminds me of Bolas's deck from DOTP 13. Yikes.

Now, if only there was an EDH version of the deck...

The power 9 is restricted in vintage. You can only play 1 of those cards in any given deck

I got Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker out on the first turn of my first playtest. That alone deserves a +1

MeMinusMyself I really want to battle someone in this format on One person gets to make a modern legal deck and the other uses this deck.
