Some people are figurative dickheads.

Nicol Bolas is a literal dickhead on account of the dick growing out of his chin.

Dickhead doesn't begin to describe it.

Nicol Bolas is dickhead multiplied by asshole to the power of douchebag.

It's a bit more compelling than though He's already had utmost power. But then he had it taken away and is obsessed with trying to get it back.
>>
>>59186550
It gets even better. Bo Levar was one of those old-school Planeswalkers, the kind that were the gods of the multiverse. But instead of trying to solve the mysteries of the multiverse, amass great magical power, create a plane of their own or engage in other shit that's straight out of New Gods, Bo Levar decided to smuggle cigars across the multiverse. Because fuck greater magical wisdom, acquire smokes and money.

>>59186498
That's the Mirari, he took that from Mirrodin right before the Mending happened.
>>
>>59193290
I'm pretty sure it's the gem of Becoming.
>>
>>59184880
Friendly reminder that his quest to fix the spark is just even if his methodology is obscene, and that to cause such a fundamental change in the nature of reality the "mending" can only have had hideous consequences for the multiverse that will get worse with time.

>>59184880
As an Oldwalker Elder Dragon, he was the single most powerful entity in the multiverse. If he chose to step onto a plane in anything but a specific way, he could obliterate it. Worlds lived and died at his whim and will.

Even other Oldwalkers, themselves functionally gods, were children next to him. And above all that, he was a dragon. With a dragon's pride, a dragon's arrogance, and a drgaon's power. And the Elder Dragons were themselves already rivals to Oldwalkers in power. Their war shook Dominia (not Dominaria, Dominia - i.e. the entire multiverse).

Even when the Umezawas managed to kill him, he survived it. He came back to life. Not even death was enough to end him.

And then the Mending lessened him. Began to age him, rendered him, while immensely powerful, mortal.

And he decided FUCK THAT SHIT.

That is his problem.
>>
>>59196815
Bolas. Yawgmoth never broke planes when walking to them by dint of sheer power. But the real answer is "everybody else loses", everybody in-story is just lucky the two of them never encountered each other.
>>
>>59185178
Supposedly, he's one of the few cases where being not playable worth a damn didn't also align with being hated - from what Wizards has said, people like Tibalt, they just hate his card (this is likely due to being such a snappy dresser)
>>
>>59204846
I find it hard to believe Nicol has never come across any Phryexian influence. Was he dead during the invasion or something? I can't remember
>>
>>59205112
I imagine it's less "never come across it" and more "Not my fucking problem"

Yawgmoth would get absolutely fucked in his ass. It's important to remember that he's pretty much an insane asshole that just tethered himself to a plane and plays at being a God.

Bolas would literally rip Phyrexia apart and then unmake him.

He most probably wasn't in Innistrad V.2 as a Rakdos walker because all slots were taken by other walkers. With the new rule that the gatewatch don't have to fill every possible slot in a set he will most likely appear eventually in the next three sets somewhere.

He has magic alzheimer. His neowalker form cannot handle the sheer amount of knowledge and power he's accrued in his life and is breaking down as a result. He desperately wants to become an oldwalker again and continue his quest to read all the books.

>Emrakul is too grand to experience something as trivial as hate.
Indeed
>>
>>59205339
Yawgmoth was capable of soloing literally every important planeswalker of his time. It took millennia of careful artifice, bending destiny itself, to create a weapon that could destroy him, and even that barely worked.
>>
>>59205339
>>59209914
Your also forgetting Yawgmoth has KILLED Dragon Planes walkers before.
>>
>>59209914
Yawgmoth was still, for all his power, plane-bound, with the same limitations.

Bolas was not. If he didn't enter a plane in a very specific place, it would collapse, and kill everybody on it, except him.

It's not so much about them fighting, as Bolas letting Yawgmoth fight him in the first place, because he doesn't need to. He can just break the plane by showing up.

Eldrazi were clearly the weakest enemies.

>>
>>59211508
I'd rather have a set dedicated to the Thran prior to Yawgmoth
>>
Why did Bolas do what he did way back when on Amonkhet? Wasn't that pre-mending? Did he just figure that was the best contingency plan for if he ever got depowered?
>>
>>59212527
he was a merciless god. what he did on amonkhet is probably pretty much exactly what he did all the time pre-mending.
>>
>>59212546
Right, I can understand him wanting to build a shrine to himself, but why was the whole thing set up to cease existing and become a bunch of zombies one day? What use does he have for a bunch of zombies pre-mending?
>>
>>59198405
Now im interested in this thread, but like you said, no screen caps. So sad
>>
If you get banned in standard you die in the lore
>>
>>59212565
he drained the plane of all it's resources and left it an empty shell. the trials really did seem set up to activate planeswalker sparks. you would have to go back and read the amonnkhet stories to put it together perfectly. i'm pretty sure he started the doomsday plan only when he understood his power was going to be reduced.
>>
>>59185550
You roll dice, with values being based off of the cards' positions when they're laid out flat on the table.

More an orthodontist than a dentist. He needs a retainer and wires.

>>59205898
Man, it's sort of sad that you can tell that image was made pre-BFZ because Emrakul seems to be using the hedrons as tools, rather than the tools messing with Eldrazi.

>>59212676
Did someone hit the Aetherworks Marvel with a wrench?
>>
>>59193290
It's not the Mirari; Memnarch is the Mirari.
>>
>>59197768
I think Nissa needs more time to Becomrakul before the eldrazi come back.

My reasoning: her spark was caused by encountering emrakul's true form, Jace's emrakul dream about her was watching her become an eldrazi, and emrakul seemed to talk to her during her trial of knowledge on amonkhet.

I want emrakul to come back again, because she's my favorite, but not THAT soon. People need a break from her.
>>
>>59212685
Thanks anon, that makes a lot of sense.
>>
>>59212725
https://mtg.gamepedia.com/Mirari#Memnarch
Apparently the Mirari was removed from Memnarch, but it doesn't say what happened to it after the Phyrexian takeover. Though considering that its caretakers are respectively Phyrexian, dead and Phyrexian, things don't look good.
>>
>>59212772
i think it's pretty obvious what will happen. when the time finally comes to face bolas they will steal the immortal sun and use it to trap him, then tamiyo and nahiri will use moon rock magic to summon the eldritch moon and release the one being that bolas cannot defeat.
>>
>>59212837
I was hoping nahiri would get so nihilistic that she joined the consortium, but that's cool too.
>>
>>59212865
i do like the idea of nissa going eldrazi. they are natural forces and trying to disrupt them is both futile and naive. broken bond has her talking about fixing her home. i could see her trying to rebuild zendikar as a world in harmony with the eldrazi.
