Well, in order to help you, it would be nice if you expain how your deck works exactly.

4 Nicol Bolas and no reanimation spells!!!
At least very funny hehe...

By Raist on Friday, January 11, 2002 - 06:39 pm:

Ummmm, shallow grave, sorry, i don't saw it!
Anyway, if you run entomb, you don't want more than 1 Nicol!!!

Well don, one way this deck works is with a first turn entomb to nicol and then in second turn shallow grave him, our you could do it in the first turn with the dark rituals

Hehehe, I know, Ive played against it

Then you have those Squee and Krovikan Horrors, they return to your hand in your upkeep and in the end of any turn, the horror must have a summon card over them to return, you use them with the bazaars to speed up the deck (yeah, Ill draw two then discard squee or horror) or you could use them to generate your zombie tokens with the infestation

The valley of diamonds is to sacrifice nicol after the shallow grave and gain life

The ghouls and shadows are to be put into play after you discard some creature cards above them

And btw Wacky (Jorge), you were right, the Necropolis isnt very good in this deck

The deck really lacks the power of Duress, a must-play card.

I would probably cut the red spells altogether (with the exception of Squee) and add some more discard like Hymn or Stupor to the deck. Nicol Bolas isn't the beefiest creature out there... Multani and Verdant Force are also nasty beatsticks.

Yeah, but the true power of Nicol is the discard the whole hand of the opponent if it hits... Its VERY frustrating if you lose your whole hand and 7 lives in the first turn
