Magic: The Gathering, the figure of Nicol Bolas is present as one of the great antagonists and in his recent history he has had an epic confrontation with the Gatewatch, a clash accompanied by many fans, which motivated the construction of a deck that recalled the golden moments of the elder dragon. We prioritize building a deck with the lowest possible cost; however, it can be customized according to the choices of each player.

Vorthoswho had difficulty building a Nicol Bolas deck based on the passing of the ages. For this, we opted for mechanics that were based on turns.
Suspendwas the one that best met this need, as it had good support and huge spells. In the first few turns, speeding up the game and correcting the mana curve are priority, as well as suspending our first spells. Prismari cards - Rousing Refrain and Inspiring Refrain are great openings, as are Wheel of Fate. Necroplasm and Chronozoa are important defenses to generate time. Chronozoa is especially strong in conjunction with Elemental Rift, as the time counters multiply each time Chronozoa is copied.

Doomsday Clockis always running. The other sweepers are Hex which destroys 6 creatures and Aether Gale which returns 6 permanents to their owner's hands. Tyrant of Discord causes random destruction of permanents that can be one or many. Necroplasm quickly kills a considerable number of creatures, destroying at the end of each turn all creatures with converted mana cost equal to the number of counters on it.
