Urza, Lord Protector and Urza, Planeswalker are the two sides of a Transforming White and Blue human Planeswalker, introduced after the release of the set that documents his disastrous feud with his sibling and fellow Artificer - Mishra : The Brothers' War.

Urza has average health, very good Mana gains in his colors and good Spell and Support limits.

Lord Protector gains Mana and draws cards.

Urza, Planeswalker gains Life and summon Artifact Soldiers. He can Exile cards and destroy all enemy cards, at the cost of any non-vanguard and non-artifact cards he controls.

Each have a different version of the same Passive Ability : Impending Ignition, which is activated when they use Loyalty abilities.

Urza's Transformation is called Tag, as with the Royal Scion twins. It is achieved differently than previous PWs; any Loyalty ability will trigger it, as long as the player controls both of two specific cards. Any Loyalty ability will also trigger Lord Protector's Passive ability, and Fetch one of those cards from outside the game (Urza's Spellbook). As with Nicol Bolas, the Ravager, the transformation is permanent: Urza cannot return to Lord Protector once he has become Planeswalker.

Urza returns to the concept of abilities costing differently at different levels, and turns it on its head; instead of more powerful abilities costing More, as with some early Hibernum Planeswalkers, Urza has abilities - Calculating Assessment and Essence Disassembly - that may grow more powerful or stay the same, but cost Less at each new level.

"Before becoming a planeswalker, Urza was a brilliant artificer who engaged in a decades long war with his own brother. The explosion of the Golgothian Sylex that ended the war and changed Dominaria forever also awakened Urza’s spark, granting him power beyond his imagination."
