It see play in 3 formats: Vintage, Commander and Pioneer. It's currently being selled by the minimum price of $ 6.99. It's a key card in 11 combos.

A deck that benefits from Bolas's Citadel is one that focuses on high mana value spells and has ways to gain life to offset the life payment cost, such as a Black-Green Ramp deck or a Black-White Lifegain deck. While Bolas's Citadel can be a powerful card advantage engine, there are better alternatives like Aetherflux Reservoir for combo decks or Future Sight for card advantage in blue-based decks. Bolas's Citadel can see play in certain decks that can support its unique playstyle, but it may not be a staple in every deck due to its high mana cost and potential life loss.
