If you'd read it, you'd note that the flashback was one of the twins (Yasova's grandaughter) having a vision, basically recanting the story that the wind elementals had told her to Yasova; a story that Ugin had himself told the elementals.

However, there's some ambiguity as to how this exchange of knowledge took place, as if Ugin had directly given the story to the Elementals, they would know the name of the plane it took place on: Dominaria. But, they say there's no name for it in their language, which while true, wouldn't need saying if they had been told the story orally or telepathically as-is.

Additionally, Ugin seems to speak through the vision to Yasova at the end of the 'story', which would imply Ugin is actually either speaking forward through time to the person who will eventually hear it, or used a spell to tell his story through visions, telepathically, in the present. Either are plausible, given Ugin's power and association with time travel.

The twins in the title referred to Nicol and Ugin, but there were twins in the non-flashback part of the story to create parallels between the past and future. (Notice that one of them was a reserved tactician who had visions, while the other was a reckless fighter who wanted to ignore the other but knew they couldn't.) Thus, it creates the illusion for the reader that they're reading about Yasova's grandaughters, until the bombshell drops that this will actually be about the twin Elder Dragons.

Because it's in Battlebond and it interacts well with several other cards in different ways. Alhammarret's Archive if i do put the counters on opponent creatures, Doubling Season if I put them on mine, boosts Grothama's power for the power-matters cards, etc. Its basically the most versatile card with Support.

I think relating the Ur-Dragon to the Eldrazi may have been to provide further clues as to the nature of the Eldrazi; specifically, to lend credence to Ugin's theory that they are a necessary part of the multiverse, primoridal beings that serve as part of a greater ecosystem. The Ur-Dragon would seem to be just that, populating planes with dragons without reason or clear form.

Many Modern (and I assune Legacy) Tron decks run a copy. Its played in Commander but in this case that's not where most of its value comes from.
