James H.

Ulrich is the long-awaited Werewolf “lord”, the G/R legendary Werewolf creature people were clamoring for through all five sets of Innistrad and Shadows Over Innistrad. And he is…frankly underwhelming, if we're being entirely honest. Ulrich, Uncontested Alpha

For 5 mana, he gives a temporary buff to one of your creatures. Make no mistake, +4/+4 helps end games very quickly when he gets out there, but he’s the very definition of a “win more" card. If you're behind, there are many other Werewolves and creatures you’d want to have over Ulrich, and he's still vulnerable to burn like Harnessed Lightning. His flipside is pretty much spot removal on a 6/6 body, which is reasonable if not underwhelming.   

Ulrich does play decently despite not being “flashy", but his real claim to fame is that he's the legendary creature Werewolf Commander decks wanted to sit in their command zone. Take that away, and he's not all that exciting.
