My god, how could anyone possibly like the horrendous art, made to match the fashion of our time, bolas planewalker has become? magic used to have a lot funny drawings and also cool stuff, orcish librarian for example also had funny books like naked lunch in it, but in the same set you could find necropotence. Magic should also carry fun stuff, and funny drawings (kithking are not funny, but deformed) , now they are scarcer.

Thus how can you be so heretical ?, why in hte world we want yet another fierce, firebreathing dragon? please magic must be something more than just common fantasy art. Anyway if you enjoy this card there a crappy alternative art reprint.

Awesome art!!! He's old. He's Legendary. He doesn't need to get up for your quibbles. He doesn't look like every other piece of bland dragon art that's out there.

This is one of those cards that I saw as a kid and realized that MtG was something different and special. Not your over-the-top fantasy game but one with a great deal of imagination.

I kind of like this art as well. The new Nicol Bolas arts have his head way too small for his body, and least for a dragon that's supposed to be as smart as he is.

I'd appreciate the art if the old gold card frames weren't so ugly looking.

Fantastic dude, bad art (I like hardcore fantasy stuff, OK?), and unplayable cost. But for the classicness of Nicol moosing Bolas, I'd run him anyway. For extra points, play him with Ramses Overdark.

In Soviet Russia, Nicol Bolas taps you

He doesn't look very "all-powerful" in this artwork.

That artwork sucks!

Great card, poor artwork, this looks like a dragon that's scholarly and relaxed, not a super powerful dragon, who later became a demi-god...

Worst artwork in magic history. It completely ruins what could have been one of the coolest cards ever. I swore to myself long ago that if I ever happened to meet Edward Beard Jr, I would beat him with a rubber chicken as payback for this travesty.

How can joke art like this "get your vorthos going"? It chews my vorthos up and spits it out.

And of course the killer promo card with the serious art is impossible to obtain.
