Overview

Nicol Bolas, the Ravager is a blue, black, and red elder dragon Planeswalker, introduced in July 2018 along with the Core Set 2019 card set. He can transform into a more powerful form, with a different set of Planeswalker abilities.

He has high health, average mana gains with a balanced spread, and average deck limits.

He has a mix of powerful abilities, including card draw, opponent discard, and direct damage. In his transformed state, he can also return a creature with its reinforcements to play from the graveyard, and create a support Token which stops the opponent from drawing cards.

Nicol Bolas, the Ravager, sometimes called B2 or NB2, is the second of three playable Planeswalkers in MtGPQ which embody Nicol Bolas at different points in his life.
