Gonna be fun seeing how modern shakes up. With Uro gone my Prowess deck gets better so I’m happy!

I put three Uros in the sideboard of a CoCo Merfolk deck, just due to the fact that it completely destroyed control and aggro decks.

I am not displeased to see it leave.

I'm pretty salty about ssg. After faithless looting a bunch of my modern decks to a beating. At this point I don't know if I'm going to be sticking with this format.

If there was any remaining doubt that WotC has not been properly playtesting cards, recently, this should eliminate that doubt, since Oko has now been banned in all but two format, and Uro has been banned in several, as well. Hopefully, there shall not be too many repeats of this incident, in the future.
