    Urza was a pretty cool guy and doesn't afraid of anything.

    I personally never had any huge problems with him; He was unconventional in his methods. In the end, I think he left the site altogether after being demoted from staff position. He wasn't banned.

    He was never a mod, and his treatment of forum members was unacceptable - so was kicked off on the second occasion. I got on very well with him but in terms of the "social" aspect of being a (mag) staff member he was terrible.

    You either loved him or hated him. He was very knowledgeable about anything he talked about and if you asked a question he would give a great answer like FAST.

    He was probably the only member that I had problems after registering here and becoming an active poster..
    I disliked him for his methods..He made an argument with me and flamed me, even tho he was in wrong and I've proved it, and all that because I was a "newcomer" and he thought I was a n00b and that he can do with me whatever he wants..

    He insulted a lot, and flamed, and he thought he was the smartest person in the world..

    But once you got to know him, and become a friend with him, he was really a cool guy (or so I've heard)..

    Urza, ex mag staff.

    Knew most of his shit, and actually used homebrew and not just roms [​IMG]
    Funny and creative at times, but also unforgiving and excessive flaming led to his downfall.

    I enjoyed his style, even if it didn't work out so good for him in the end.

    Next, you'll be wondering who bonemonkey or JPH were (lol, similar stories)..

    He was the most badass motherfucker around. He knew his shit, left convincing arguments (and flames) wherever he went and shot down noobs as if they were ducks.

    One of the most knowledgeable guys around. Almost all his posts contained seemingly water-tight arguments and evidence. Became a magazine staff for a while and backed down though.

    Awesome guy. [​IMG]
    I'm a fan of his threads back when I was a lurker.
    A number of homebrew fans liked him. (Me, Another World, etc)

    He is comparable to gbatemp's drunken genuises, Normmatt, and Smiths. [​IMG]
    Hmm, but he doesnt do Rick Rolls. [​IMG]

    Seriously though, he's a really cool dude with an peeve against stupidity. He was a lot more honest than most people and if he flamed you, you probably deserved it. Really helpful guy and did lots of good for the community while he was here.

    Pretty cool guy. Flamed noobs badly, which also made him funny. He knew a lot about homebrew.

    Too bad he did have a bad temper (a temper... with a bad temper! you get it? ok, this was bad, I know [​IMG]) and got kicked because of that :/

    Urza Planewalker

    Urza was born on the first day of the year 0 AR to a noble family of Argive, one of the three coastal kingdoms of Terisiare. His younger brother Mishra was born on the last day of the same year. Urza's mother died while giving birth to Mishra, so his father took another younger wife who did not like the brothers.

    he's a pretty cool guy. he ended becoming chief artificer and owning a kingdom. he also went through a dimension to over throw the phyrexians. he founded a magical academy, blew it up built it again. engineered plane travelling throughout the world. just a small portion of his early life [​IMG]
