It doesn't say combat damage. Sweet.

Why does Bolas need trample, again? Check his colors. If you're playing red, black, and blue, then you should hopefully be packing some spot removal.

@ DarthParallax: Yeah, and the 1 says he's reading novels about his future self, causing rampant destruction and total mayhem. And that he's smiling imagining what fun he'll have doing it.

I really wish they had done the art better... He looks too much like a demon, it just doesn't go... He's also expensive and color heavy...

Our of curiosity, am I the only one who doesn't get why on earth he is even a bit red.
Flavor wise, he's one of the least red characters I know. He's reading a book for crying out loud, that's more blue-flavored than Chromium. I have read his profile it stated that he sought omniscience(Blue) and omnipotence (Black). Even the hand destruction trick while mostly black, seems bluish black. So where is the red?

Nice card if you can get it out.

Zoah, the red is in the dragon bit of him, of the 106 creatures with type "dragon" in magic, 76 of them have some red in them.

On the subject of Nicol Bolas not having trample, it just isn't flavorful for that ability to be on his card. Some .5/.5 Little Girl enchanted with Flight blocking his path to her planeswalker master? Well Nicol Bolas is going to completely and totally annihilate her, reanimate her, manipulate her, and then annihilate her again before moving on to bigger game.

Nicol Bolas is my favorite dragon to transform my Scion of the Ur-Dragon into as he swings unblocked in EDH

Awesome if you can get him out early. I have a feeling that by the time you hard cast him, you opponent won't have much of a hand to take away. I'd rather have the planeswalker...

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
