Legendary Planeswalker â Bolas
+3: Each opponent loses 3 life unless that player sacrifices a nonland permanent or discards a card.
âˆ’3: Destroy target creature. Draw a card.
âˆ’11: Nicol Bolas, the Deceiver deals 7 damage to each opponent. You draw seven cards.
While resolving Nicol Bolasâ€™s first ability, your opponent chooses a card to be discarded without revealing it, chooses a nonland permanent to be sacrificed, or chooses to do neither. Then that player discards that card, sacrifices that permanent, or loses 3 life. Your opponent can always choose to lose 3 life, even if they have cards to discard or nonland permanents to sacrifice.
In a multiplayer game, each opponent in turn order makes their choice for Nicol Bolasâ€™s first ability, then all of the actions occur simultaneously. Opponents will know choices made by earlier opponents when making their choices, although a card chosen to be discarded this way isnâ€™t revealed until itâ€™s discarded.
If the target of Nicol Bolasâ€™s second ability becomes illegal, the ability doesnâ€™t resolve and you wonâ€™t draw a card. If that target is legal but canâ€™t be destroyed, most likely because it has indestructible, you still draw a card.
If Nicol Bolasâ€™s third ability causes each opponent to have 0 or less life, but it also causes you to try to draw more cards than you have in your library, the game ends in a draw.
