RAGE WITH THE KICKA! 10 to the dome. I like what this card has done for the game. Even the name is suitable. Who could stop Urza if he was really angry? The only possible defense is to turn it against him, Judo-style. This card may not be the best card in your opening pack, but its still the card I'd most likely take. A 5 in my book in both categories.


Burn Rating: Best ever.
Limited Rating: 5
Constructed Rating: 5


Burn, baby, burn!  I think this card is fun for the simple fact that it can't be countered.  It's got an insane kicker cost, but is VERY balanced.  It is definitely tournament worthy for constructed.  It's another card that has a really high price.

As for limited, I would take it.  If i were already into red, it is a definite pick in my eyes.  

Constructed: 4.3
Limited: 4.0

Uncounterable burn. And it does 3 to boot. Two of the most important things when dealing with a blue deck. Throw in the fact that you can kick it for 10 damage instead, and you've got a solid card, worthy of playing anytime you are playing red.

Urza's Rage is an extremely good card. Not being able to counter it makes it broken enough, but the option to throw ten at a person instead of three is amazing in my opinion. It is the grand daddy of all red right now, and will remain that as long as Invasion Block remains type II. When it cycles out, Urza's Rage will still be good, but not to the magnitude it is right now, or during the Type II last year. I give it a 5 in type II, and a 4 in extended, because many of them are too fast to utilize it even at 3 mana.

In Limited, this card's not so much broken as it looks. Yes, hurling 10 damage at an unsuspecting opponent is fun, but burn is burn, no matter what new trick it has. It goes early, because it is removal, but it's not as special as it looks in draft, at least not any more than Scorching Lava or Fiery Temper. I give it a 4 in draft.

Even without the kicker Urza's Rage is one of the best burn spells available currently. Instant speed 3 damage to either a creature or player that CANNOT be countered is fantastic. You can pull of all kinds of combat tricks to mess with opposing Wild Mongrels, Nantuku Shades, Basking Rootwalla's, and Psychatogs if you know what you're doing! The only drawback to this card is it's rare... meaning it won't be easy to find.

Urza is one hell of a mad-man. Like the little teapot, when Urza gets all steamed up, just tip this card over and pour it all out. Rage to the dome, killing a creature; it doesn't matter. Who said nothing gets accomplished with anger?

In limited, Rage is still a great card. Pick it high. Everyone else will.

Constructed: 5

Limited: 5


Great card. An instant that can't be countered that does 3 or 10 damage is simply the best red spell in type 2 and maybe the best in extended (see Fireblast for the other). It is a red players dream. And children what does the Godfather always say ? "Fire Good Water Bad !"
Constructed, Limited, Extended- 5.0
Good luck tomorrow and remember "Don't be smelly or stupid."
