motherfuckin' URZA

Dawn of Man[]

Hail great Urza, Lord High Artificer of Argive! You and your brother Mishra were apprentices to the archaeologist Tocasia, studying the ancient Thran civilization and their highly advanced artifice. When you and Mishra each found half of a Thran powerstone, your sibling rivalry exploded into an all-out war, as both you began restoring and improving Thran war machines. Eventually, you ended the Brothers' War by using the Golgothian Sylex to create a ruinous blast - one of the most apocalyptic disasters in Dominaria's long history.

The Sylex Blast killed Mishra and destroyed the island of Argoth, but you survived, your planeswalker's spark igniting. Over the next few thousand years, you struggled against the machine hell of Phyrexia and its abomination of a god, Yawgmoth. Through this period you became arguably the single most significant individual in the entire history of the Multiverse, and you ultimately sacrified yourself as part of your Legacy Weapon to destroy Yawgmoth forever. Urza Planeswalker, your genius in artifice is required once again. Will you surpass the glory of even the ancients? Will you build a civilization to stand the test of time?

Introduction: "I am Urza, Lord High Artificer of Argive, Yotia, and Korlis. This had better be important; I have some Thran tomes to study..."

Introduction: "An "envoy from a distant civilization"? I don't believe that nonsense for a second. Mishra sent you, didn't he?"

Defeat: "Before your glory, yes, even this makes sense."
