General description:
Urth is the second light super rare of Base Set and probably the better one.

Uses:
Urth's 6000 power would kill quite alot of creatures, so Urth is fatty that can't be attacked.

Strategies and game play:
Urth is used for his power and he can untap so stronger creatures and slayers can't attack it. He also is good for evolving into Alcadeis.

Combos with other cards:
Sieg Balicula can make Urth really good, because he can attack and then untap at the end of your turn and start blocking, but having blocker isn't always a good thing. Angel Command support from Shadowclash helps too.

Ways to counteract it:
Remove him with a spell card, tap him then attack, or hit him with a creature that can attack the untapped.

Strengths/Pros:
6000 is a good amount of power.
Double Breaker is something you would expect in a 6k or higher creature.
The untap ability is optional and keeps him from being killed by something stronger.

Weaknesses/Cons:
The untap ability leaves him vulnerable to Death Smoke.

Overall rating:
4 out of 5
