The latest Banned and Restricted list for Magic The Gathering has been released by Wizards of the Coast, detailing 13 different banned cards across four formats. Most notably, Uro, Titan of Nature’s Wrath, has been banned in multiple formats due to the card’s domination of the meta.
As detailed in a news update, Uro has been banned in three different formats: Pioneer, Historic, and Modern. “Decks built around Uro, Titan of Nature’s Wrath are the most played in Historic and have been for a while now. While other decks have contested for that position, the steady dominance of Uro, Titan of Nature’s Wrath shows it is too powerful for the format,” the ban decision for Uro in Modern reads.
The post also indicates that Uro is “one of the most dominant creatures in Pioneer,” and “has become a dominant fixture across many of the top Modern decks.” The bans in all three formats hope to encourage more variety in the formats’ metagames.
