Ahead of Unstable's release this weekend, Urza, Academy Headmaster has come alive! That means Askurza.com, the website used specifically to activate the new Planeswalker Magic: The Gathering card from Unstable is now available to randomly generate an ability for players.

Thanks to the source code, Redditor 0600Hours revealed all of the possible options for the new Urza card. For each loyalty option, there are 20 abilities each, almost all of which seem to be copied from or at least inspired by existing Planeswalkers. Check out all the abilities:
