Otherworldly Patron - The God-Pharaoh

While other warlocks pledge their loyalty to fiends, fae, or Eldrazi, you prefer the elder dragon Nicol Bolas as your patron. Bolas respects power and is always in need of another minion, so your request for power was granted. As the herald of the God-Pharaoh of Amonkhet, you rain his fiery wrath upon your foes.

Expanded Spell List

The God-Pharaoh lets you choose from an expanded list of spells when you learn a warlock spell. The following spells are added to the warlock spell list for you.

God-Pharaoh Expanded Spells
Spell Level Spells
1st Bane, command
2nd Enthrall, scorching ray
3rd Animate dead, fireball
4th Confusion, wall of fire
5th Destructive wave, raise dead

Imminent Doom

Beginning when you choose the God-Pharaoh as your patron at 1st level, your foes will fall before your might. You start each encounter with one point of Doom. Whenever you cast a spell that is of an equal or lower level to the number of Doom points you have, each enemy within 10 feet of you takes fire and necrotic damage equal to the number of Doom points you have. Then you gain 1 doom point. If this feature was triggered by a cantrip, the damage is halved.

Gatewatch's Defeat

Starting at 6th level, you may spend your bonus action studying a target. You can use your action to learn one of the following about a target:

  • Its AC
  • Its current hit points
  • Its resistances and immunities
  • Its vulnerabilities
  • Any special attacks it may possess

Once you use this feature, you must use it against a different target before you can use it against the first target again.

Slave of Bolas

Starting at 10th level, once per long rest, you can invoke the energines of the God-Pharaoh against a target you just damaged with a spell. That target must make a Wisdom saving throw or be dominated by you until the end of your next turn.


Starting at 14th level, you have managed to impress the God-Pharaoh to such a degree he has bestowed upon you his greatest gift. Once per long rest, you may cast one of your Mystic Arcanum spells, as well as one spell of each level below 6th that you know, without expending that Mystic Arcanum or that spell slot.
