Quote from papa_funk »Not running a card because you wouldn't have fun with it is the most important reason not to run a card.

Quote from bobthefunny »I think Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath will see a lot more play. Both in and out of the Command Zone. Gaining resources is always rated more highly than pissing everyone else off.
I think I'll see him more out of the Command zone, but I think there's a lot of capability to build around him as well.
On first cast Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath is essentially a Growth Spiral in the Command zone - that's pretty cool as is, especially since you're not likely to need to ever pay command tax on him afterwards either, unless you want to. You could even let him return to the CZ on the first cast, just to allow yourself the latitude to play him for 5 as ramp if needed, though I doubt that would come up often.
What gets crazy is when you add value to him - You're casting a creature, there's an ETB trigger, there's a card draw, there's life gain, there's potentially a land etb, and there's a death. That's a LOT of things to work with:
Already, things like Elemental Bond, Garruk's Packleader, Guardian Project, etc will trigger to draw cards. Cream of the Crop will trigger to help filter. Wild Pair will trigger for big things.On cast - Lifecrafters' Bestiary will trigger on the cast to draw a card. Primeval Bounty will trigger to make tokens.You can sac it to Greater Good, Return of the Wildspeaker, or other sac outlets.I don't think I need to list every landfall ability, but you can get a lot of tokens.
I mean, I'm already imagining someone dropping Uro on t3 for a growth spiral, letting him go to CZ, in order to play a Greater Good and then be able to draw 7 for 5 mana, discard 3, and be well on the way to recasting him from the GY.
Now, I think that's a bit far-fetched. You're probably better off leaving him in the GY after the first cast, and using blue filtration/loot to stock up the GY to recast him. Frantic Search could make an appearance in that deck, as could Windfall, Tolarian Winds, Flux, etc.
He's rather open-ended to build around, and even if you DON'T - many of those cards are just good in other decks, and can easily be run alongside him. I wouldn't mind him in the 99 and drawing him early, or even drawing him later. Especially not if I have a greater good.
Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger I don't see being included as much in the 99, but he could make an interesting type of Megrim commander. You can probably power him out earlier than Uyo thanks to cards like red wheel variants - red has plenty of looting as well, while black has plenty of draw, and plenty of discard. New Chainer could fit the theme well.
T2 Croxa, T3 Wheel, T4 Croxa is probably a dream, but a scary one nonetheless.
Quote from speedstar15 »Im looking for some synergy cards though, cards with effects like Equilibrium but instead of cast trigger to return creatures, I need ETB triggers so I can bounce these titan back before resolving the ETB trigger.
Quote from Gashnaw II »Palu has the same ability as the phantoms from Judgement, meaning that you can make him nearly immortal. and with access to green, buffing is not a big deal (aside from end of turn things like giant growth, you can use things like Blanchwood armor.)
Quote from Macabre »Sure we could stick altar of dementia to sac them with their first etb on the stack, but that's a bit awkward when their benefit is to be cast asap.
