Ufunguo was the first Zhalfirin city to fall to Kaervek. When his evil army stormed the border and attacked Ufunguo, Sidar Mwigo and her troops bravely held the city, allowing its civilians to flee. Their sacrifice allowed the citizens to take refuge at Tefemburu, but Ufunguo was badly damaged afterwards.
Ufunguo was phased out alongside the rest of north-western Jamuraa since the planeswalker Teferi wanted to spare it from the horrors of the Phyrexian Invasion. It was removed from existence when Jeska destroyed the time rift over Zhalfir.
