Duel Deck: Ajani vs. Bolas

The leonin Ajani Goldmane scours the shards of Alara with a single thought in mind: revenge. Filled with rage at the murder of his brother, Jazal, Ajani searches for his killer. Leaving no stone unturned, his wrath grows along with his power as a Planeswalker, leading him to an ultimate showdown with the Multiverse’s master manipulator.

Nicol Bolas is beginning to feel effects of the eons of time and knows it will take the mana of an entire plane to rejuvenate his ancient power and set his new schemes in motion. As he expertly maneuvers the pieces of his interplanar game into place, he encounters an indomitable will bent on retribution.

The battle of Alara’s Maelstrom is in your hands. Determine the fate of an entire plane and the outcome of an epic conflict between two rival Planeswalkers.

  1. I assume this means Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker will be the primary card? I wonder which Ajani will be printed.

  2. “The leonin Ajani Goldmane scours the shards of Alara with a single thought in mind: revenge”
    I would say Vengeant too 🙂

    And yea.. the odds seems to favor Bolas a little..

  3. Hopefully they put a bunch of money cards into this to make up for the fact that Ajani Vengeant is like 4 bucks and Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker is like 10 (strange btw that hes much more considering how much worse he is.) The main thing Elspeth vs. Tezzeret had going for it was Elspeth.

  4. This is so silly. Now Wizards has to write this into the flavor of the story somehow, and the power mismatch is just going to be super awkward. Being a true Spike, I don’t normally concern myself with the flavor of the game, but for “Ajani versus Nicol Bolas” at the meta-level, how does casting Nicol Bolas and +3ing him to destroy Ajani flavorful? Game over much?

  5. I guess that’s what they were referring to with “it will take the mana of an entire plane”. Ajani has to win before Bolas gets enough lands in play to cast himself and “rejuvenate his ancient power.” That’s kind of lame.

  6. Agree with maxhuman. Ajani has speed while Bolas has the power. It is a race. To the victor go the spoils.

  7. Ajani on the play can go ultimate before Nicol Bolas can be cast.
    This should be fun, Ajani Vengeant is my favorite planeswalker.

  8. Yeah, people complaining about the power mismatch obviously don’t know the story. Here’s a clue, Ajani cast Soul’s Fire on Nicol Bolas at himself.

  10. Yea in the worst ending of a book ever a little punk Ajani (who doesnt even fully understand his powers ) defeats Bolas one of the most powerful beings in the multiverse. Really?!

  11. So the game play will boil down to Ajani wins before bolas gets out or bolas gets out and shits all over Ajani’s face. Derp.

  12. Seeing as how Bolas is virtually uncastable and Ajani Vengeant is one of the best, most defensive and cheapest Planeswalkers printed, I’d have to give the edge to the kitty cat.

  13. i really dont get why people say bolas isnt playable i have seen a standard eldrazi deck pull out emrakul (who costs 15 mana) on turn 6. now if that card is playable im pretty sure bolas is playable

  14. Well. Emakrul is colorless mana while Nicol has three different mana costs to meet and all of those doubles, I think.
