If Ugin hits the board the game is over. Literally impossible to play around for most decks.
This card is a absolute joke just got beat by someone on 4 health I have 111 I have 9 full powered mobs out , then he says gg and plays Ugin. Great card guys I love how just biding time is a legit tactic
So many people are calling for the ban of Ugin outright. It's completely overpowered and very difficult to counter. And yet Alchemy has nerfed other cards???

I thought I hated planeswalker decks before, but this is a new low even for wotc... Completely ruins all games - could at least destroy instead of exile with the boardwipe, feels more like an ultimate ability than a -X...
Ugin is a garbage card with almost zero counterplay. Ban it, then delete every single person at the company who both had a hand in designing it and who wanted it kept in the game.
Just got back into playing MTG Arena. I am so tired of playing a game for 10 mins finessing my way to victory and having someone play Ugin. Ruins the game. I am at the point now where whenever someone plays Ugin I time them out, something I would never usually do. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE BAN BAN BAN
Fat lot of good this feedback did... Ugin will survive until the standard rotation (and will probably be re-printed yet again in a couple of years).
Build whatever junk you want, just throw in Ugin and you'll win. Such a garbage card that should have never made it through playtesting...but then again, you'd actually have to playtest your product to figure it out.
Ugin is BS. We have it banned in our paper group. If someone cast him, we kick that player from pub/kitchen. Broken card, unfun, played by skill-less players.
Would you ban Ugin already! I can't believe you're willingness to wreck your own game. Unbelievable. Whoever is in charge of these things really, really, REALLY needs to be fired. Hire a chimp to do the job. It'd be more effective.
Completely ruins the game for me. I've never asked for a card to be banned. I play and enjoy infinite combos for goodness sake, but Ugin is just devastating to the game. It is an instant win against almost any deck, and unlike other board wipes you can't come back from this. Just no opportunity to interact. Why did they ever think this was okay? How many players does this card make leave the game? I am getting close to being another one of them. This is ridiculous...

This card is so overpowered, its not even funny.
If at least there was some kind of condition that he had to meet to be able to wipe the board and build loyalty counters while also having insane clear capability...
There are 5 colours. Only a colourless deck has a chance. That's no fun.
Ugin is making Magic Arena not fun for me. Right after it's played they wipe the board. Then each turn they do 3 points of damage and get +2 loyalty points so they can wipe the board soon again after. The 3 points of damage is so lame, it just keeps whittling down my life. I had a great game going and Ugin ruined it. More than once. Please ban Ugin.
I started playing around 1996.
Making cards like this is ruining the game.
I just quit when someone plays it.
I immediately rage quit mtg arena, not just the current game when i see thisncsrd come out. My field was doing very well and then Ugin comes and its game over in 2 turns no matter what. Im not gearing evey deck i have to play around Ugin. Ban it already

Children play this game. Think of the harm Ugin does to their young, precious minds.
For God’s sake, WOTC, if nothing else, do it for the kids!
I just played a match against what I thought was a standard blue mill deck game was going pretty well till he wiped my board then played Ugin I killed one Ugin and he played another at that point i conceded Ban Ugin please
i've queued into a bunch of 8ugin in a row, can we just get it banned already?
Slots into pretty much any non-aggro deck and immediately takes over the game in an uninteractive and unfun way, can't stand this card and how often I see it.
it doesn't matter the turn, Ugin is scariest than the most of your historic banlist. I accept a card can save a player, give him card advantage, etc.. but a card can´t give u the victory when u have nothing in battlefield and the other player have a really good board.
For example, Craterhoof Behemoth can give u the victory but it needs other creatures to win you. Ugin wins by himself. You only need a deck with some ramp, some removal and BAM! Ugin and instant-victory.
I think it's a card that should be played ONLY in Multiplayer Commander (never in a face to face), Legacy and Vintage. Is not necessary to say what i think about that card in Historic (by the way, take a look because u have some turn 2 combos in this format. Please, don't make the money you can earn with bundles more important than a the format that gives us the opportunity to play the cards that have gone from standard).
Now, I'm going to introduce 2 Ugin's copies in my Life Deck because, WHY NOT??
Please, ban Ugin, Nicol Bolas made things right.
Ugin is the most annoying card in the deck. Get to deal 3 damage to any target not just for free, but gains you 2 (2!) loyalty counters. Oh, and two of those later, you get to put up to 7 permanents onto the field. SOOO broken.
