If you don't want to play it, don't. I love the card. It was a great idea to run the event and the card is perfectly flavourful with great art. It also means another interesting mission for me to do. All in all, as a player who's interested in fun over winning, I couldn't ask for much more in a card.
I despised this card upon release but, after some reconsideration... Uchtul could be a great card to have in ELO. 8/8 coupled with SoB is amazing. His ability is really the only proper way to offset something so powerful. It really boils down to the cards you play him with. For me, Diana or Murray come to mind.
