ajani vs bolas is hardly a fair fight when bolas' first ability outright destroys ajani.

When this hits is when you coolly drop a Volition Reins

@ pedrody

The Ajani Vs. Nicol Bolas symbol is supposed to be a combination of Ajani's Axe-Sludgehammer hybrid (see in Ajani Vengeant's hand) and Nicol's horns.

Anyone who's read Harry Potter knows that seven is the most magically powerful (or powerfully magical) number. That's why his last ability is all sevens. (@adrian.malacoda, I see you have noticed what four other people have so far. Can't anyone stand a little creativity around here?)

He's just so brutal it's not funny.

Here's our normal Nicol Bolas conversation:
"I tap my eight mana and play... Nicol Bolas!"
Everyone else: "NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!"
Then it's: "Gang up on the dragon planeswalker!"
Then it's: "Please not me... I've been nice to you... please... not me..."

I love this guy.

A play set of Nightscape Familiars get Bolas our embarrassingly quickly.

So far, my duel decks are pretty darn close to 50/50 in wins. However, 100% of the time that Bolas hits the field, his deck has won. These are good decks, and lots of fun so I am ok with that.

I have a friend that was so proud when he finally managed to play this card. Then I confiscateed him.
The time after that I won the next turn, (and killed nico with some left over damage out of spite)
The problem with Nico is that, by the time he shows up, your opponent will be very well armed.

T1 Deathrite Shaman
T2 Morgue Toad
T3 Dark Ritual -> Nicol Bolas.

I want to note something for y'all. Even if they beat him to death, he's a 2-for-1 by just using his -2.
That's huge.
His + is not only +3, but it's the best + on a walker.
His ult not only doesn't kill him if you went straight for it; it tortures your opponent rather than usually finishing them off.

No no no. You get to die slowly.

It's kind of wierd for their to be a Planeswalker vs. Nicol Bolas set. It doesn't make sense for that planeswalker to be as powerful as Bolas, yet the decks have to be balanced anyway.
