According to Magic 2014, he's 60ft tall, 60ft wide, and weighs 60 tons.
The art doesn't always communicate that well, but I guess it could be justified as shapeshifting/power level changing.
This is his official card art. Each of the smaller things flying around him is a full-sized adult dragon.
Bolas was a god even before he became a planeswalker, and is one of the five primordial dragons from which all other dragons in the Multiverse descend from.
Of COURSE he's gigantic.
I sill want to know why his armor is crotch-less.
So this'll be about Bolas wanting his favor back from Liliana and somehow corrupts Avacyn with her help and now that Jace shows up she gets a hell of a talking-to, feels like shit for the first time in her life and goes completely into damage control mode?
>Bolas was a god even before he became a planeswalker, and is one of the five primordial dragons from which all other dragons in the Multiverse descend from.
he wasn't a god and elder dragons are a whole race, not just five individuals, and pretty sure the multiverse doesn't come into it and that that only applies to dominaria.
While you're certainly true that they weren't gods and that it only applies to Dominaria, Elder Dragons aren't just a race. The Tarkir Elders are on a whole different level to Bolas and his amigos. Those original few from Dominaria actually were powerful enough to be considered gods and were a lot more dangerous.
I mean hell, they used one of their corpses to build an inter-planar airship.
Uh... wasn't he also the bad guy in Fate Reforged? That was only last year...
I was glad we had a confirmation that it wasn't gonna be slivers or fucking Eldrazis. Innistrad has a good mood by itself, no need to warp the whole fucking plane.
Bolas manipulating demons to do his biding sounded better than hurr-durr cosmic aberrations eating the plane.
If they play the Lovecraftian Horror card correctly, it might be nice.
But of course they won't.
The worse is, even knowing this I'll still be disappointed because I always have hope. Hope they're not gonna fuck up.
Everything that isn't from Zendikar, Theros, Rav, or Innistrad may as well not exist at this point.
We're never going back to Dominaria, save for a one-shot UR or some minor scrap like Lili's backstory.
Jeez, how is Luke supposed to defeat Vader? The guy must be like a hundred feet tall.
I, for one, believe our mistress and savior can do it.
You just wait for them to retcon her into being the OG Eldrazi.
They were well recived once so they got jammed in everything.
You know how people thought open-world was a cool vidya feature and then devs started jamming it in games where it doesn't work? It's like that.
>Elder Dragons are a whole race, not just five Individuals.
Only 5 survived the Elder Dragon Wars, and served as the progenitors of all winged draco-forms, the losers being forced to become Wurms.
This has been altered with new Khans lore, but originally, yes, in old lore, the Elder Dragons were the most powerful beings in the multiverse that weren't planeswalkers. Further, their war encompassed Dominia, not Dominaria. Dominia was the original name for the Multiverse, but it got changed because, seriously, two planar concepts with that close of spelling is just retarded.
In short: yes, they were the sires of all true dragons in the multiverse, they were very close to gods, and there were only 5(6) of them after the Elder Dragon Wars.
>unit of time equal to a billion years
Is anyone else kinda meh when it comes to nu Bolas?
I miss the green grandpa dragon.
It's fake you ignorant assholes.

Why am I so fucking pissed off? Goddammit fuck this I'm gonna go for a run or something

Cuz of your sick digits, anon.
Nicol Bolas was ancient when the Thran first started banging rocks together to make fire. He was ancient before Niv-Mizzet ever hatched, let alone signed the Guildpact. He was already ancient when Equilor was first born from the chaotic morass of Dominia.
Pretty much the only things that might be older than him are the Eldrazi, and frankly I'm not even certain about them.
I think the two images compliment each other. It's nice to remember that, when all's said and done, NB just wants to bunker down in his library and enjoy the finer things...
(He just can't get comfortable unless that library contains infinite knowledge, is infinitely secure, and is surrounded by several existences worth of kowtowing worshippers)
It's an Elder Thing.
