Why does nobody ever suggest using him in a 5-color deck with Doran? I mean, +2/+2 for all your defending creatures is nothing to scoff at :o

He's dead.

Okay, that sounds a bit morbid all by itself, so i'm adding this.

LOLOLOL A BANT ELDER DRAGON WHAT A N00B NICOL BOLAS CAN PWN HIM 10/10 IRL!

Okay, i'm done.

I want this to be the next dragon planeswalker. A perfect foil to Nicol Bolas.

At least he makes sense in his colors, though since he can't blow an opponent away in a heartbeat, he never say much play. Well, that and the huge casting cost and upkeep!

7/7 flying for 8.

Toughness breathing blows.
His untapped abiltiy pretty much blows.
Crippling upkeep + very heavy mana cost.


2/5

Did anyone actually ever play this cycle to any good effect? I'm not convinced.

From Maro on 2014/1/3:

"I remember talking to the lead designer of Legends, Steve Conard, many years ago and he was surprised that Nicol Bolas was the break-out Elder Dragon Legend. He thought it was going to be Arcades Sabboth."

Back then people must have been really bad at evaluating cards.
