Premium Format

Unfortunately, Gleaming Lord, Uranus does not fit well in the premium format. His abilities are too slow against decks with G-Units. You want to play your G-Units instead of using Gleaming Lord, Uranus’s effect to generate Force markers. Your G-Units provide more offense and have stronger abilities to give an advantage to you.

Card Rating

Overall, Gleaming Lord, Uranus is a fantastic card for the standard format. He provides a powerful offense to crush the opposition! Furthermore, Gleaming Lord, Uranus creates the Astral Plane for Giant Deity of Distant World, Valkerion to join the battle! His card’s design does not fit well in the premium format. I only players playing him in casual decks for the premium format.

Premium Format: 2.5 out of 5 stars (2.5 / 5)

Standard Format: 5 out of 5 stars (5 / 5)
