Quote from Marl Karx »More like, "if you support green aggro, it gets a little better". It can be a nice piece of disruption but even in the most favorable (combo?) Cubes it is still a 2/1 with a double-edged marginal ability a huge percent of the time. Hardly close to the best one drops.

Quote from wtwlf123 »@Metamind:
I think you're undervaluing Uro in a big way. But I have no skin in this game since I'm not cubing it at the moment either, so no big deal. But just because a deck is permanent based doesn't mean the escape loses value. In fact, if my permanent-based Simic deck can't scrap together 5 cards inn my 'yard, that means that all my permanents that have resolved that game are still on the battlefield ...which means I'm winning. What that kind of deck needs is an out to the disaster scenarios where all the permanents get swept off the board, my hand gets annihilated by disruption or all my impactful spells get countered. Enter Uro, who fixes those situations by generating card advantage and providing meaningful board presence. Uro will be good when the rest of your gameplan has been solved by the opponent, and that's where I need my cards to shine the most.
