It's somewhat underwhelming, when you consider what a planeswalker Urza could be. They should never print such a card, though. Not everything in the storyline needs to be strictly defined, and 4,000 years of magic lore would be too much to fit into one card, especially when you take into account the way Urza didn't stay in the background anywhere near as well as Yawgmoth did, or Nicol Bolas does.

Urza Planeswalker: No Mana cost(What? Do you think Urza would come at your beck and call because you spent some mana?)
Loyalty: 1 (You used some trickery to force Urza to show up, why should he be loyal to you?)
0: Urza will not do your bidding. Urza wins the game (Note: You are not Urza, this does not cause you to win)

I have no idea why this was chosen as Urza's vanguard ability. It makes no sense with his character.

While this may make Urza seem like a weak character, keep in mind that Urza has access to 10,000 colorless mana at instant speed just by tapping his heels together.

On the foil versions, it has text that says "{0}: Kill target Phyrexian." True story.

5/5 on sheer principle. I mean, it's URZA.

His Planeswalker card wouldn't be anything like that, 'cause then when you used the first effect the game would end before you could punch them in the face and steal their binder. lol For real's though it would probably just have something in the text box like: "Are you sh*ting us? It's Urza, if they didn't quit already bash their face in."

@ Kryptnyt: This is a very good point, that would indeed be an acceptable Urza planeswalker then.

"Why does it reduce your hand size? Isn't handsize more or less intelligence in mtg?"

Because nope.avi, EVERYONE feels stupider if Urza's in the room. Including the sorry sap who summoned him. Sloppily. (Say that six times slick!) In Soviet Dominaria, Urza Sculpt's JACE's Mind! X.X

I always looked at this card and thought "Huh, so it's an infinitely repeatable ping that absolutely cannot be removed by anything. Welp, time to get an infinite mana combo going." It fits with Urza's character, too. He's awesome, but also kind of a dick, so he won't just hand you your win. You have to work for it.
