Conflux Minisite + Full Nicol Bolas Info

January 14, 2009

I am really impressed by the sheer beauty of everything that is Conflux. Every card looks great, every banner on the minisite looks very promising. I can see many great playmats coming out of this latest installment in the Magic universe. 











I will be checking the spoiler site twice a day as well as checking the official articles as they start off the spoiler season on Monday. 

Also, all of Nicol Bolas’ abilities have been spoiled.

4(R)(B)(B)(U), with 5 loyalty counters.

+3: destroy target non-creature permanent

-2: gain control of target creature (does not end at end of turn)

-9: Nicol Bolas, planeswalker deals 7 damage to target player, they discard seven cards and sacrifice seven permanents.

Pretty intense final ability. How unfortunate the R&D department had to make up for his power in his casting cost. 8? Wow. Maybe there will be a herald for him. 

Bon Voyage,

    Nicol Bolas has an absurdly expensive mana cost. First of all, Cruel ultimatum is cheaper to cast. Secondly to get the third ability you have to activate the first one at least twice and then -9 loyalty. And finally, it’s mythic rarity. Awesome art but not playable at all.

    I agree the art is cool, but nicol bolas is as expensive in mana cost as prince of thralls or godsire. therefor not making it to expensive to play, it’s just underhanded.
