Now that Theros Beyond Death is live on Magic Online, it's time for a certain Elder Giant to make a sweet escape.
Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath is the most-hyped card to feature the new escape mechanic (sorry, Elspeth, Sun's Nemesis). As long as you have extra cards in your graveyard, you can reanimate Uro over and over again to trade for value—all while getting a Growth Spiral effect and 3 life. Do that enough times, and your opponent will start looking for a way to escape the game.
Escape works best in Sultai colors, which let you self-mill to find your escape targets and pay the cost for their freedom. Satyr Wayfinder, Stitcher's Supplier and newcomer Tymaret Calls the Dead all flip your library into your graveyard so that Uro, Polukranos, Unchained and Woe Strider have enough buddies to stage a breakout. If your opponent can't return Uro to the underworld in time, they lose. If they can...well, Uro knows the way back.
