Nicol Bolas Tribal


Created for The Trinisphere's Planeswalker EDH episode. Of course I'm going to pick Nicol Bolas. My matchup appears to be against Gideon of the Trials and Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  . This strikes me as a particularly difficult matchup because they can easily tag-team me with aggro + control, so my focus is on trying to control the board until late-game. Gideon is particularly hard to deal with since he's not a creature on my turn (no sorceries) and indestructible on their turn (no "Destroy" effects).

How It Plays

This is a full-on control deck. Ramping early, reacting to threats, and politicking my way out of sticky situations would be the most ideal chance to win. Grixis control will draw a lot of ire, so it'll be tough to fight what will probably be a 2v1. Luckily, Grixis has a ton of ways to deal with opposing planeswalkers.
