"The Elderspell", one of the most powerful Sorcery spells in Magic: The Gathering's latest set War of the Spark hasn't seen a lot of play in Standard format but Hall of Famer Gabriel Nassif managed to unleash its power with "Nicol Bolas, Dragon-God" and win the game with the planeswalker's ultimate ability.

Watch the clip below: 

Just in case you're not familiar with the cards, "The Elderspell" is a two-to-cast black Sorcery that lets you destroy any number of planeswalkers and lets you add loyalty counters to a planeswalker you control for each planeswalker destroyed this way. As you can see on the clip above, Nassif "Yellowhat" casts "The Elderspell" to kill his opponent's three planeswalkers while he has Nicol Bolas, Dragon-God on the field, raising his planeswalker's loyalty to 10, which is enough to unleash its -8 ability that says "Each opponent who doesn't control a legendary creature or planeswalker loses the game."

Here are the cards for your reference:
