NNicol Bolas, Planeswalker is, of course, in Magic 2013.

But it isn't like Nicol Bolas is a lone dragon, standing without friends in a cold and unfeeling core set. Both an Augur and a Disciple stand by, each showing the horns of Nicol Bolas to show where their loyalties lie.

It can be a little hard to see the horns on Disciple of Bolas at card size, but when the art is blown up, it's on the disciple's torso.

But the horns aren't the only symbol of Nicol Bolas being carried around Magic 2013. The chest armor worn by Augur of Bolas matches the armor on Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker. And Nicol Bolas, the Augur, and the Disciple all have a distinctive strip of fabric draped over their shoulders. And that brings us to Mindclaw Shaman.

Not only does Mindclaw Shaman have the fabric and the armor, but even the Viashino's horns reflect Nicol Bolas's distinctive shape!
