I like that they got Terese Nielsen to do the art.

I guess that none of the random abilities that Urza can get have targets, because you have to activate the ability before you see what it is

Or, because it is an Un-Card, that will just be glossed over.

I still have some hope that we might get an Urza in a Commander supplement some year, even if it's "Master Artificer" (Argoth Era, say) not Urza PW

And they called me crazy that I argued Urza was five color.

This is actually pretty crazy that the first five color planeswalker is silver-bordered

It's shocking in retrospect that they haven't done a 5 color walker before this.
I wonder if this had to be 5 color to accommodate the abilities they have planned. They're probably all new, but it's possible that it gets a random +/-/ultimate ability from any existing walker.

They could have made this any color and then designed the abilities on the website to match. They made it five color because people wanted a five color planeswalker

If the joke is that your card has random abilities, then of course you make it a five color card....

or a mono-red card

or red-blue

or red-green

or red-black

maybe mono-black

red green blue and red black blue probably work too

I feel like this should have been 5 mana of any single color. Although I guess there are no mana symbols for that. I guess you make it and add "when ~ enters the battlefield, sacrifice it if more than 1 color of mana was spent to cast this it"

It would have been cooler if you could use mana of any color, but had to note what colors you used and filter for those on the website when you randomly generated an ability. So if you used mana to cast Urza, it would only pull powers from those color tables.
