If Ugin hits the board the game is over. Literally impossible to play around for most decks.
ban ugin, its not any individual part that is op, its the colorless board wipe plus permanent that's op . one or the other has to go. any card that is strictly better than any other card, like ugin, has to go.
Ugin is a win the game card for 8. You’ve banned cards that are far less overpowered than Ugin the Spirit Breaker. Ban this card and ban it now.
Seriously it's a good thing there's not chat or info about the player because violence should be perpetrated against anyone playing Ugin.

I’m with Seth. I am effectively boycotting Ugin. If an opponent drops it, I concede. I refuse to let them have the “fun” of playing it, which in turn nullifies the intent of Wizards including this card to begin with. I hope those players will see this and realize that Ugin is a scummy OP card; if that is how you need (or worse, want) to win, then I pity you. It’s sort of like the kid who brings his dinosaur to destroy all your green army men, and about as sophisticated and mature in MTG terms. Need to win that badly? Fine, here you go, enjoy your 50g. I’ll play with someone else.
After wiping all my permanents, Ugin is still on the battlefield and ready to prevent me from coming back. This is so overpowered that I concede in protest no matter how far ahead I am in the game.
Is anyone reading this board?
How has nothing been done about this broken card. Its been wreaking havoc for so **** long.
Has anyone given a good defense as to why something that nukes the entire board, at the amount that best suits the controller, while ignoring hexproof, indestructible, and protection, is both fair and fun?
Literally the only way to prevent him using his obnoxious ability is to counterspell. Which seems to be the deal with more and more cards nowadays.
And even if you bent over backwards to explain why "No its actually a perfectly fair and balanced card", it doesn't change the fact that so many people just concede as soon as it hits the field, because yeah game is over 9/10 times.
Because it doesn't matter how statistically perfect a card is, when it doesn't promote a fun game, and most people hate it, it's not a good card.
The problem with Ugin is not so much that it is a 'I win!' card (there are many of those). It's also not that it can be cheated out with a bit of ramp and that it can do so in decks of any colour. It's not even that it's a bit like Sol Ring or Arcane Signet in that it's a 'might as well' shoe-in for so many otherwise diverse decks. The problem is that in terms of both design and mechanics is it eye-rollingly boring. Grey in every way, uninspired and a bland way to win. From a marketing point of view I don't see the point in the card. It adds no value in strategy or fun. Very sad that it's part of the game really.
Yeah, sorry to say, but this card breaks the game completely.
I'm not gonna lower myself to using it, because that's just OP. It's like using aimbot. It just gives immense advantage to card owner.
It's impossible to win against this card. I just had a match, me 64 hp, my opponent 4hp, he drops ugin, wipes the board and just burns me to the ground. Match lost. Another one.
I can handle Emergent Ultimatum and other stuff, but Ugin with his insta board wipe is just ridiculous. This is just insta quit with frustration. No matter how good you play or what cards you still hold, you get hit with Ugin and it's over. Some people are using 2 or 3 of them.
This card needs to be banned from standard.
Unreasonably over powered. 4 games played today with insta win ugins. I will no longer give mtga money as long as bs like ugin is acceptable.
Yeah, you can all just give up. I just got a ban because of what I wrote here before. Obviously behavior that is meant to discourage Ugin use is met with a ban. The game is dead for me now. Wizards should be ashamed of themselfs for giving a **** about their once great product by creating completly unbalanced overpowered cards, and then when they get backlash from the playerbase after not banning or changing the card stoop so low and sanction players acting against it. For anyone who still has hopes for this game I wish you good luck. You will need it. Stuff like that will only get worse when they cant even own up a mistake they made.
I'm out. Enough other games to play were there isn't a "I win"-card
PLEASE ban Ugin. I auto-quit as soon as he hits the field...no matter how far ahead I am. It ruins the game more than any other card the last couple of years. Totally unstoppable unless you have a black instant that destroys planeswalkers, and even THEN he gets to destroy all your permanents first.
3 games today of Ugin, 2 of them just ran nothing but board wipes/removes/counters until Ugin. It's stupid how strong this card is.
This card signifincantly detracts from my enjoyment of the game.
I guess this is the trash bin, since Wizards hasn't responded.
Ban Ugin for the many reasons posted below.
I still agree with this 100%. Only other card I say is this bad is Emergent Ultimatum. But no, seriously, even without the T2 combo, a turn 4/5 1 sided board wipe is total BS.

Logic Reasoning: most planeswalkers can be killed a number of ways but Ugin is different because the damage is done from his initial appearance. He wipes the board of all permanents casting cost 6 and lower but you can recover from a creature wipe. Ugin's wipe is especially offensive in that he EXILES the permanents when he wipes. Theres no way to recover from that! You can never bring those cards back even if you do manage to kill Ugin. So for 7 cost he wipes the board then deals 3 damage to anything which GAINS loyalty points basically regenerating infinite exile wipes. He should be reworked to choose 2 or 3 permanents to exile and he should lose loyalty points for dealing damage. Thats why Ugin needs to be banned... and pretty much 90% of all other planeswalkers but we can start with Ugin as the worst game breaker.
When I see this card I leave the game, It trashes the matches. REMOVE THIS CARD>
BAN THIS CARD>>> WHAT GARBAGE>
Ban Ugin, a Timmy game-breaker.
If your goal is to attract new players you are doing a horrible job. As long as this card is in standard you will deter players. I enjoy magic, but right now its just not fun. Ugin isn't completely broken but it is incredibly boring.
