Murder doesn't discriminate. You already have cards that require double black, so black is a primary color in the deck. I would run 3 Murder s and 2 Go for the Throat s in the main (-1 Vapor Snag or Gilded Lotus ) and keep the Doom Blade s in the side to swap out the Murder s for if you play against a nonblack deck.
I would cut out 2 Mountain for a Sulfur Falls and an Island . Nicol Bolas is your only red card in the deck and you're much more likely to miss a blue mana source early in the game than not draw a red source by the time he's playable.
Overall I like it, nice to see planeswalker control that isn't Esper.
Thanks for the comment and rate, and yeah, Murder is a lot more limited than it appears due to the extra one mana. I'm hoping to see a nice replacement in Ravnica. I made the deck just for Bolas because he is so fun to use, and plus, planeswalker control is too good.
If you're going to play Mana Leak , play four. Also, Pillar of Flame is good against enough decks that it should probly be mainboard. It kills Delver of Secrets Flip , mana dorks, Strangleroot Geist , and card:Geralf's Messenger, and how many decks are there that don't play at least one of those creatures?
