Nicol GG

Anyone got a clue on how to beat this guy? Which planeswalker to go with? He's got everything covered, and can simply win with his ultimate. Life gain isn't going to be able to keep up with that considering your hand and creatures are done too. He might as well be called Nicol Don't Bother.

    Go creatureless. He can't use his ability without you having creatures on the board. It is annoying, but works.

    Looking for ideas myself.  Don't have tezz 2 but shrine of the devoted cycle deck seems like a top choice for life gain.  I don't have him leveled....was thinking maybe a Ob Nix creature less?  Still would take it to the chin so not sure how to keep my job up without creatures

    I was thinking creatureless. Man if that's the solution though, then it makes play antithetical to everything the modern game of MTG and especially this format is supposed to be all about. They really, really needed to rethink this a bit.

    Yep, creatureless worked. Ugh.

    hit or miss but i use dovin with cast out if you get them early before he can wack you to much and lock down his creatures as they come out, drake and cycle like crazy also the gold 4/4 that exerts in 3 rounds for a bit of healing just to keep it up. as i said win about 1/2-2/3s of the time
