This week, I’m going to step back from doing a deck tech and talk about Ugin the Spirit Dragon. Check back in 2 weeks for a new deck!
There is much to be said about Ugin in terms of how cool he is in the Magic storyline, but I’m not really the Vorthos to tackle that one. Maybe Bruce will someday. Rather, I am here today to extoll the virtues of Ugin, the Spirit Dragon as a Magic card. Yes, the 8 cost Planeswalker card that is currently going for about $40 each on starcitygames.com. A price tag certainly is a strong indicator of how good a card is, but I’m going to take it a step further.
Ugin is the best card in standard, and will remain so until the Khans/Fate rotation.
