Up: That’s a mighty large robot you got there. Sadly, your “assembly” mechanic needs retooling. As is, skipping your untap step isn’t great, but that ability only costs 3 mana, and you’re probably using it on turn 7. Combine that with all the new proliferating from War of the Spark (and the originals from Scars of Mirrodin) and you have a hexproof Blightsteel Colossus that gains you 24 life on turn 7. I like the idea, but this execution is too powerful.
Unholy Collusion Sorcery Exile all creatures. If you control a Bolas Planeswalker, an Eldrazi creature, and a colored artifact as you cast ~, you win the game instead. There they stood, Bolas, Eldrazi, Phyrexians...never before had the multiverse seen such a terrifying alliance.

Up: I'm no expert on Magic yet, so don't quote me on this, but it looks to be about on par with other alternate win cards. It seems to make thematic sense too, from what I understand about Bolas. (I'm not going to give it a score, because again, no expert on Magic so I don't know if this card is actually good or not.)
Up: That looks very powerful. I guess you could play this in a deck that has only expensive creatures and just pay two mana to get something big. It's balanced out pretty nicely by letting it fight something of an opponent's choice. I guess it was intentional that this can lead to fight between your your own creatures? It should say "fights another creature of an opponent's choice", else it might fight itself, which is not a good idea. (It would deal damage to itself equal to its power twice.) I also think you should just put the creature on the battlefield instead of casting it for free. If you let it be cast, then it gets on the stack and people can respond to it and stuff. And the rest of the card would be a delayed trigger or something weird.
Kaalia’s Gift Enchantment - Aura Enchant creature Enchanted creature gets +3/+3, gains flying, trample and “At the beginning of your upkeep, sacriifce another creature and put a +1/+1 counter on this creature.” and is an Angel, Demon, Dragon in addition to its other types. “Well, I’m not complaining.”

Iol Lark, Prestigious Turncoat A generic, a Black, and a blUe Legendary Creature - Human Enemy Sacrifice another commander: Iol gets +1/+1 for each time you've cast another commander from the command zone this game. Accomplice (This may be your third commander if the other two have partner. You may only have two commanders in your command zone at the same time. At the beginning of the game, shuffle one of your commanders into your library). And just when Bruse thought his day couldn't get any worse. 0/3

I know it's not customary to post in fast games when my post is the next to last, yet this flavor was so easy yet no one took it for four month.
Up: Acomplice is a strange mechanic that pushes commander even more towards multicolor (at least the way you present it), which I'm not really in favour. There is already enough stuff that lets you easily go four or five color, which in my opinion dampens the spirit of the format a bit. Other than that, Iol seems pretty weak. Which I guess makes up for the fact that he is an acomplice. I like how you play around with the partner mechnic and having multiple commanders. I think it would have been better without acomplice (maybe partner; or just as single commander or part of the 99) and just letting you sacrifice any creature (maybe plus a mana cost). Then Iol could just count all commander casts, including their own.
Flame Plow instant Flame Plow deals 3 damage to target creature or planeswalker. If that permanent dies this turn, its controller sacrifices a snow land. Arson is so much easier than shoveling snow.
