    Gate w/ devotion

    So the Gate is this neat mono b control deck. Its biggest weakness is often poor topdecks.

    I want to build a control deck using Bolas's Citadel as an engine and with Gray Merchant of Asphodel

    The Gate has been dead a long time in Legacy, and Bolas's Citadel is too slow for it anyway.

    Why not try this in Modern? Most of the cards are Modern legal.
