The first week of Conflux spoilers are kicking off today at Magic: the Gathering.com. They couldn’t wait any longer to spoil this guy. Nicol Bolas is going to be a hot card for sure (click that link for the flavor backstory).
I wonder if Sarkhan Vol isn’t a little stronger in comparison. You can play him in half the time, Sarkhan’s second ability is stronger for sure and the third is game over for your opponent if they can’t block the fliers. Both Planeswalkers take the same amout of turns to get to ultimate. Bolas has the advantage of not dyeing the first time it can pay the ultimate cost. Also if both Planeswalkers hit the board at the same time, I’m assuming Bolas’s first ability can take out Sarkhan.
I’m just not sure Bolas’s casting cost is going to be worth it. Perhaps there is going to be some sort of herald for him.
