The only worthwhile Elder Dragon, Bolas is awesome. If only he had trample...

Of course, he's no match for his planeswalker form.

And I, for one, wanted to beat up Ed Beard, Jr. just for his name.

Scion of the Ur-Dragon as your general. -> Dragons Enabled

Kaalia of the Vast in your 99. -> Angels Enabled

some enchantment that allows you to break Rakdos by turning all into Demons -> Demons Enabled.

Yep. there is more than enough support to run 'the most powerful Timmy dorks ever printed' all in the same deck. wow.

White or any other cheap ways of having a creature deal damage gives you a creature with tap to discard an opponent's hand.

I actually use both Nicol Bolas cards in my main EDH deck, and brought him out in the last game with the Vedalken Orrery on my opponent's turn to block, then beat him over the head with it on my turn. Then he promptly got control magic-ed all around the battleground. Good times.

I'm intrigued how this art, spawned the art on bolas planeswalker. Oh! And why anyone really gives a damn about perhaps the most stereotypical dragon to ever exist. He is greedy, self-serving, had a god-complex, and runs away like a little whelp when a real opponent (Phyrexia) is present.

So many butthurt comments about the art! XD

@Captain-Chernosh: I wouldn't call him the most stereotypical dragon ever to exist. Your average dragon tends to hang out in a cave sitting on treasure, not plan world domination.

On the card: probably the best of the Elder Dragons from Legends, but still overcosted.

First thing to search for in a Scion of the Ur-Dragon EDH. Slapping their hand away quickly really catches them off guard.

This card is awesome.
End of Story.

Hate the re-design of Bolas. Now he's just some random-ass dragon. Seriously, take the FtV art, slap it on any other dragon, and see if you can't tell the difference. And be honest.

So maybe he doesn't look like an angry, stupid, fire-breathing monstrosity. He sure doesn't look like one of the most powerful beings in the multiverse. But he is. And that's the power of Bolas. He doesn't give a *** what you think of him. He eats *** Kokushos and Scourge of Kher Ridges for breakfast and nobody says shit.

"Nicol, whats the secret of your power?"
"What do you mean?"
"I mean, you are one of the most powerful, ancient, destructive and mercyless planeswalkers. Your evil schemes span across millenia, you have 2 other planeswalkers serving you, and even after time spiral block, your card has gotten even better."
"oh, that. I read books."
"WHAT?! You mean all of your power comes from reading books? How can books give so much power?"
"Have you ever seen Jace, The Mind Sculptor?"
