While Wizards of the Coast is currently in the thick of combating a PR nightmare with its latest release for tabletop Magic: The Gathering, everything’s business as usual in the collectible card game’s digital counterpart, Arena.
Following the release of 2020’s final Standard set, Zendikar Rising, players have spent the last few weeks making their way through a refreshed Mastery Pass and experimenting with new decks, one of which, it seems, has proven to be a little too prevalent in the format. As confirmed last week in a surprisingly swift Banned & Restricted announcement, Wizards revealed the banning of Uro, Titan of Nature’s Wrath, the intention being to rein in the power of ramp and mill decks. Uro, of course, was printed in Theros: Beyond Death earlier this year and not Zendikar Rising, though it’s supporting cards introduced in the latter that ultimately pushed the titan to the status of overpowered.
That being the case, then, you’ll no longer be able to find Uro in freshly-opened packs of Theros, though there’s still plenty of chase cards worth cracking boosters for across all four currently Standard-legal expansions.
