Banned everywhere except for Legacy. The price-drop should not be as dramatical as in the case of Oko, Thief of Crowns (Legacy-ban aswell), but remarkable nonethelss.

PKCasual(12.02.2021 08:47)

Good thing i unloaded some of these bad boys for over 35€ a piece last year. I also would like to apologize for the people who bought them at those prices.

HeliouHyios(11.02.2021 04:48)

Bye bye

GrumpelMTG(11.02.2021 00:27)

Oh yes please . Ban him till death

Need one for Highlander ;)

TheBadRandolph(10.02.2021 19:10)

To be banned. Well, let's see how low this goes...

Nicknapper(10.02.2021 17:43)

We are planning an upcoming B&R announcement. In that announcement, we plan to ban Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath in Pioneer, Modern, and Historic. Additionally, we are continuing discussions about doing the same in Legacy. While we are still working internally on the larger B&R announcement for that week, we wanted to share this information ahead of this sale.

Bye bye uro

Ecomen(28.09.2020 21:15)(Edited: 28.09.2020 21:15)

It was the last time Uro escaped standard.
The Titan got ban today

Wainer(28.09.2020 20:52)

dariomagharibo(28.09.2020 17:18)

Banned in standard from today !

AtlasInvictus(28.09.2020 17:12)

Gooooooooodbye Uro! Now Banned in Standard.

EMIYA-(28.09.2020 16:59)

Good bye!

Aight(27.09.2020 10:39)

What’s happening here?

Leidnix(22.05.2020 22:42)

Not even close. Uro doesn't win on its own when slammed on the table on T2-T3 like Oko. It's a strong card but you have to build around him to use him effectivly. Also as a creature he is more vulnerable to removal than Oko was.

LeBonco22(15.01.2020 19:42)

This guy is gonna lift up Sultai Control in Pioneer all by himself.
Durdle around, kill stuff and then finish em of with a 6/6 monstrosity for only 3 mana

Revenge(13.01.2020 23:58)

Uro is a powerful card, it is maybe one of the best cards of the new set and in standard.
It will sure see play in any format as soon it will be possible.
For standard: Most times it will be used as an upgraded Growth Spiral with an possible way to get it back on the battlefield and to get his ability triggered any time it attacks. Sure there will be a lot of possibilities to fill the graveyard, especially with blue mill cards, or in Temur, or in Sultai, but there are a lot of cards that will try to block this new escape ability, cards like Grafedigger's Cage or Kunoros. Uro will be a threat, but not with such an impact as Oko. To get it escaped needs some time, or a deck that is tuned for it. Oko was just an easy upgrade in the existing green/blue decks with an huge impact on the meta. U play Oko or you need a deck to handle it, there was less in between. Another hitback for standard is the starting level of his prices. It will be too expensive for this format to dominate it, because of its drawbacks. Other formats like pioneer, modern, legacy and commander will maybe have more use of it and therefore the price will reflect its use in other formats and not in standard.
I'm looking forward to play it on Arena and to find a deck that can use his abilities as good as possible. But in paper it is too expensive if your will not use it in modern or pioneer with a banning possible in these formats. So maybe it would be wise to wait a little time before you buy four of them... ;-)!

ConstructedBy Rone (2021-03-22)

ConstructedBy IIItygraIII (2021-03-16)

The Golden/Silver/Bronze Age of Magic

EntertainmentBy Dr-Exhume (2021-03-11)

In light of recent announcements, last year's Secret Lair: Walking Dead looks increasingly like it was the dawn of a new era: the age of crossovers. It fueled a lot of chatter and ramblings, for example about what constitutes "the Golden Age" of Magic. Let's try to determine different periods!

Vanilla Creatures in Legacy: Past, Present, Potential

ConstructedBy CabalTherapy (2021-03-02)

Magic at its core is about attacking and blocking with creatures. It used to be that these creatures didn't have three triggered abilities and two activated abilities each. Text boxes didn't overflow with words. Sometimes they didn't even have any rules text at all. Where are the vanilla creatures?

Control Decks in Post-Ban Modern

ConstructedBy Skura (2021-02-25)

It was barely a month ago that control variants utterly dominated the Modern metagame. But the recent banned and restricted announcement shook the archetype's very foundations. Will it be able to hold on to its tier one position despite the changes? Can it adapt? Let's look at decklists!

Three Modern Decks to Play After the Bans

ConstructedBy ElonThragtusk (2021-02-23)

ConstructedBy CabalTherapy (2021-02-18)

The Ultimate Guide to Cryptic Command

ConstructedBy Skura (2021-02-17)

Cryptic Command has always been a part of Modern, albeit important to different extents. It's been a tool of control decks for a very long time, performing a key function as both interaction and card advantage. Let's explore the card fully and unlock all of its potential for beginners and advanced players alike!

VIDEO: What the Hell Happened to Pioneer

ConstructedBy IIItygraIII (2021-02-15)

ConstructedBy IIItygraIII (2021-02-09)

VIDEO: Every Card on the Modern Ban List Ranked

ConstructedBy IIItygraIII (2021-02-08)

Why You Too Should Take Pauper More Seriously

ConstructedBy PR0boszcz (2021-02-08)

The pillars of today's competitive Constructed compendium are, without a doubt, Standard and Modern. A little bit lower in hierarchy we find Wizard's new babies, Pioneer and Historic. Then there's Commander, Legacy, Vintage, and the topic of this article: Pauper. What makes this format so unique and interesting?

VIDEO: These Modern Creatures Will Not Be Cheap for Long

FinanceBy IIItygraIII (2021-02-06)

With a huge change in Modern meta over the past few weeks and good recent reprints, Modern is a format that has seen some staple creature cards recline in price. However, these cards will almost certainly go back up in price when paper Magic returns in 2021.

Kaldheim Candidates for Legacy

ConstructedBy CabalTherapy (2021-02-02)

Kaldheim is not an overpowered set. I am inclined to add "fortunately" to this statement because Legacy has been on a wild ride since 2019. A little change of pace does us good. So let's take a relaxed stroll through the snowy scenery and take a look at the candidates that might find a place in Legacy …

Top 5 Cards That Should See More Play in Modern

ConstructedBy Skura (2021-02-01)

Modern is a vast format with dozens upon dozens of viable archetypes. To me, it's the most diverse, fun, stimulating, and overall best format in Magic. However, people sometimes tunnel vision on a narrow subset of cards that they keep playing over and over again and forget the cards that need exploring.

Kaldheim Spotlight: Valki // Tibalt

SpoilersBy Rone (2021-01-18)

With Kaldheim, the snowiest plane of all, Tibalt returns to Magic history—and to make history himself. Disguised as Valki, the God of mischief, trickery, and lies, he makes for the first ever modal double-faced card showcasing a creature/planeswalker, ready to boost every Rakdos archetype across all formats.

The New Modern Silliness: Hammertime, Obosh, Oh Boy!

ConstructedBy ElonThragtusk (2021-01-13)

2020 was a crazy year for Modern. With so many powerful cards making their debut, it's no wonder the metagame still tends to change so rapidly and so seriously. The last two or three months alone have brought us at least two completely new decks, and another one has made a sudden resurgence.

The Impact of Commander Legends on Legacy

ConstructedBy Rone (2021-01-12)

The holiday season is over, and Commander Legends has been with us for more than 50 days now. Time enough to see results, time to take inventory. Which cards from Commander Legends made the cut in Legacy and where do they fit in? Let's rank the best of the bunch and look at lots of lists!

Kaldheim Spotlight: Sarulf, Realm Eater

SpoilersBy ElonThragtusk (2021-01-06)

The preview season for Kaldheim started out slow, so it's not surprising that Sarulf is one of the most discussed cards so far. Its abilities are very powerful in theory, but both its power level and its playability are hard to evaluate. This happens to make us want to dive into the topic of Realm Eating even more!

VIDEO: 4C Uro Piles Deck Tech (Modern) + Deck Variants

ConstructedBy NayRained (2020-11-18)

Since its release in Theros Beyond Death, Uro seems to be everywhere. And understandably so, as he is a jack of all trades with life gain, ramp, card draw as well as being a chunky creature. In this video, Snapbooster explains how to get the best out of the Titan with this control-like 4C Uro Piles Deck.

The Many Flavors of Modern Control

ConstructedBy Skura (2020-11-17)

Modern has always been known for being the most open and diverse competitive Magic format, and this time it's not any different. In this article, we want to look at a bunch of different Cryptic Command control decks, including some lesser-known variants, that are part of the metagame right now.

Omnath's Life Beyond Standard

ConstructedBy Rone (2020-11-12)

While the marquee card of Zendikar Rising only lasted three weeks in Standard and on MTG Arena, Omnath, Locus of Creation can redeem itself by being a playable but not completely busted contender in other formats. Pioneer, Modern, and even Legacy — we review every Omnath strategy!

Kroxa, the Crux of Standard

ConstructedBy Rone (2020-10-26)

With Uro and Omnath off of Standard's menu, it's finally time for other strategies to shine. Rakdos Midrange has emerged as a serious competitor and as an early frontrunner in the current format. Let's unveil all the raw power the deck has to offer and review some sideboard tips and tricks.

FinanceBy Rone (2020-10-15)

Zendikar Rising has been out for a couple of weeks now and has settled in following the customary period of initial turmoil. So it's time to decide what to buy from the new set, and from others, in order to gear up for the fall season. Ready for some purchasing advice? Just keep reading.

My Decks for the 2020 Season Grand Finals

Event CoverageBy K_Prinz (2020-10-08)

This year's Worlds replacement involves six rounds of both Standard and Historic against the best of the best. Time to find two decks — all in the short timeframe since Zendikar Rising's release and the recent ban. Does anything beat Omnath in Standard? And what about the much broader format that is Historic?

The New Scourge of Modern

ConstructedBy ElonThragtusk (2020-10-07)

Scourge of the Skyclaves is one of those cards that look busted at first glance but require extensive testing before it is possible to reach any definite conclusion. Now, a few weeks after the release of Zendikar Rising, we have the results and can definitely say that the verdict is in.

Turning the Corner with Control Decks

ConstructedBy Skura (2020-10-05)

Any given game of Magic eventually has to end. Every player wants to be on the side of the one killing and not the one being killed. However, it becomes very tricky when your deck is ill-equipped to actually finish the game. Today, let's talk about closing the game with control decks.

Will Omnath Keep Dominating Standard?

ConstructedBy ElonThragtusk (2020-09-30)

There was finally a good enough reason to pull the trigger and ban Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath. However, right now, the new Omnath decks appear to be much more problematic and much less reliant on Uro than the banning would suggest. Is there any chance this still balances out the Standard format?

Bringing the Party to Standard

ConstructedBy ElonThragtusk (2020-09-23)

Apparently, you have to fight … for your right to party. The brand-new mechanic is a little hard to make work in the context of 60-card decks, but the potential rewards are plentiful. Let us take a look at party and other tribal shenanigans in the updated Standard format with Zendikar Rising.

Field of the Dead in Modern

ConstructedBy Skura (2020-09-22)

Field of the Dead has been terrorizing a bunch of different formats in Magic over the past year, and it got itself banned from several. Recently, to the surprise of many, it has also had an increasingly meaningful impact on Modern. Let's explore the various Field shells that currently populate the format.

Temur Reclamation Goes Wild in Pioneer

ConstructedBy Rone (2020-09-15)

Temur Reclamation was one of the best performing decks over the last year in Standard. Recently banned even before rotation, the strategy has found a new format to conquer. Right now it stands as the king of the hill in Pioneer. Let's take a closer look at the current trend and possible futures.

Updating Five Modern Decks (July & August)

ConstructedBy NayRained (2020-09-14)

How have Modern decks changed in recent months? We'll answer that question on this episode of Nuts and Bolts. We'll look at Prowess, Eldrazi Tron, Ponza, Dredge, and W/U/x Control to see how recent sets have impacted these staple decks in the Modern format.

Zendikar Rising Spotlight: Ruin Crab in Nonrotating Formats

SpoilersBy ElonThragtusk (2020-09-07)

In the last few years, mill decks have gained new removal and counterspells, but no useful mill cards. This lack of support is the main thing that keeps them from moving up in the meta. How likely is it that a new and, in the case of this deck, better Hedron Crab helps with this issue in Modern and other formats?

Zendikar Rising Spotlight: Jace, Mirror Mage in Legacy

SpoilersBy Andifeated (2020-08-31)

The Legacy format was shaken by cheap planeswalker cards in 2019, with a bunch of story-relevant characters pushed onto overpowered cards. Jace has long been deprived of the throne. The new three-mana version from Zendikar Rising may not change that, but the card is definitely worth a look.

Taking Control of Pioneer with Azorius

ConstructedBy Skura (2020-08-27)

Ever since Pioneer's inception last October, White-Blue Control has been a mainstay of the format. Though various flavors have been in vogue during that time. Let's take a closer look at what the archetype used to look like and what its position might be following the recent bannings.

Rotation Preparation: Temur and Other Adventures

ConstructedBy Rone (2020-08-18)

Standard rotation is just five weeks away, which will restart the format for good. When looking for decks to play, Adventure variants from Throne of Eldraine will remain largely intact, a Block Constructed shell that becomes tier one. Let's find out about the different versions available.

Rotation Grief: Guilds of Ravnica, Part 2

ConstructedBy Kumagoro (2020-08-17)

The Standard rotation is coming in September! Time to acknowledge the sudden disappearance from our decks of all the cards from the four rotating sets. We continue this journey of grief (or perhaps jubilation) by looking into the multicolored and colorless cards Standard is going to lose when Guilds of Ravnica rotates out.

BUG Control in Modern

ConstructedBy Skura (2020-08-13)

Following the ban of Arcum's Astrolabe from Modern, control players have to rediscover the archetype and readjust to the new environment. "Skurtai Control" is waiting in the wings to take over, quite likely the best successor to the previously dominating snow control value machines.

Ninjas Sneaking to the Top in Legacy

ConstructedBy Andifeated (2020-08-03)

The ninjutsu keyword was introduced to Magic with Betrayers of Kamigawa in 2005 and has been a fan favorite ever since. It tries to display the trickery and mastery in stealth that Ninjas are known for within the mechanics of the game. Recently, the tribe has seen renewed success in Legacy.

Worldgorging in Legacy

ConstructedBy Andifeated (2020-07-21)

The Legacy format is in a great place right now with many different archetypes and strategies celebrating success. One of the more surprising beneficiaries of the powerful printings of the last two years is a card that hasn't seen much competitive play since it was unbanned in 2015: Worldgorger Dragon.

Top 5 – Cards to Buy This Summer

FinanceBy Rone (2020-07-20)

Summer is typically the lowest time of the year regarding Magic news.

If you are looking for some cards to invest in, check out the Top 5 picks to buy, summer edition!

Standard Data Fresh from Red Bull Untapped

Return to Tabletop: Summertime Modern

ConstructedBy Rone (2020-07-09)

Modern's metagame has been shifting a lot since last year when Modern Horizons completely warped the format. After the companion fiasco, it's time to test out the tabletop experience adapted to the new normality. Here are some thoughts about recent strategies and about how to play with social distancing.

Cultivate Your Ramp

ConstructedBy Kumagoro (2020-07-02)

Standard has no shortage of great ways to ramp, and M21 added a few more, mostly by reprinting established classics. One of these has been a staple of Commander since its debut in M11 as a functional clone of Kodama's Reach with a more generic name. Does it change anything in the way current ramp decks operate?

How the M21 Reprints Impact Pioneer

ConstructedBy Kumagoro (2020-06-30)

Pioneer debuted as a nonrotating format inserted between Standard and Modern and featuring all cards stretching back to Return to Ravnica. Each new premier set adds a number of cards that see print for the first time, but also some reprints that predate Pioneer's starting point, sometimes with unexpected results.

How to Sideboard with Control Decks

ConstructedBy Skura (2020-06-24)

In Magic, you play up to two thirds of all games postboard. If you want to win at Magic, it's imperative for you to be proficient at sideboarding. This article focuses on one archetype which the author is known to have mastered. Let's take a deep look at your control deck's fifteen, how to pick and how to use them.

M21 Spotlight: Monogreen Monsters

SpoilersBy Kumagoro (2020-06-22)

The popular monocolored archetype didn't encounter too much success in the current Standard rotation so far, but it has lately started to appear in a few tier lists. Will Core Set 2021 finally give the green stompers the additional tools they need to make greater strides in the format?

M21 Spotlight: Trouble at the Mill

SpoilersBy JohnnyCroat (2020-06-10)

Core Set 2021 brings about some changes to terminology. Wizards of the Coast let the Dogs out, and now, 26 years after the original Millstone, the word "mill" finally becomes a keyworded action. The first proper card to showcase the new wording may find some application in Standard too!

Yorion, Sky Nomad Rises in Modern

ConstructedBy Rone (2020-05-25)

"Come slide down rainbows in the sky, let's fly away. Like a bird, you're free to see the boundless face of the earth. Let the wind blow you like a kite and glide away." This is what it feels like to try Yorion in Modern, where the sky is the limit and all your wishes come true by playing an 80-card deck.

Yorion, a Nomad Mad for Standard

ConstructedBy BrentT (2020-04-30)

When companions were initially released, Yorion, Sky Nomad sort of flew under the radar because obviously busted Lurrus and Gyruda claimed the spotlight first. But the Standard metagame moves fast and now we're seeing Yorion variants rise to the top. Let's take a look at a couple of decks running an extra twenty cards.

Ikoria Spotlight: Standard Humans

SpoilersBy JohnnyCroat (2020-04-15)

Ikoria: Lair of Behemoths does contain a lot, in both size and number, of the eponymous behemoths. So what could be more appropriate than to look at the tiniest denizens of the world? After all, Human tribal gets some support from the set as well, headlined by one General Kudro of Drannith.

Ikoria Spotlight: Vivien, Monsters' Advocate

SpoilersBy Rone (2020-04-14)

In case you missed it, the biggest monsters of all time are waiting for you in the next Magic set, Ikoria: Lair of Behemoths. If you need someone's advice facing them, Vivien Reid is the perfect companion for this journey. Today we are reviewing the main protagonist's new card and its future applications.

Ikoria Spotlight: Zilortha, Strength Incarnate

SpoilersBy ElonThragtusk (2020-04-09)

Pretty much every Magic set brings us both powerful and underwhelming cards. When a card's power level is hard to evaluate, experiments become desirable. Because of that, let's dig into some Standard Gruul decks both new and old and see if Zilortha really is as strong as its name suggests.

Updating Modern Jund

ConstructedBy Andifeated (2020-04-03)

Theros Beyond Death impacted a lot of nonrotating formats with broken combo cards like Thassa's Oracle and Underworld Breach. But not only did the unfair strategies get new power-creep toys — the Titan duo of Uro and Kroxa changed the faces of many midrange decks as well. Let's see what Jund gets out of that!

Arena Exploits: Adventures in Mythic/Simic

ConstructedBy TobiH (2020-04-01)

Maintaining a Top 100 Mythic rank on MTG Arena's ladder is a tough grind, especially in today's Standard where all decks fight on plenty of axes and most matchups are fifty-fifty. How about a deck that's as broken as it gets, more consistent than many, and almost too much fun to play?

Written in the Stars: Constellation in Standard

ConstructedBy Kumagoro (2020-03-26)

Do you like drawing cards and growing creatures? If so, you're bound to like what Constellation, the Cinderella mechanic from Journey into Nyx, has brought back to Standard upon its return in Theros Beyond Death. Here's a little history lesson as well as a look at current-day applications.

Arclight Phoenix in Legacy

ConstructedBy Rone (2020-03-23)

Legacy was just shaken by the latest ban announcement, so this is the perfect time to try out some janky brews and to pack some surprises. Come and join Rone on his quest to return Arclight Phoenix from oblivion, from the graveyard to the battlefield, and back to the spotlight!

ConstructedBy Rone (2020-03-09)
