Whelp, looks like those B/X eldrazi decks are going to be everywhere. With the rise of tron should we just start packing a ton of crumble to dusts in our sideboards?
Except for the fact that you can't select it when something says "you gain X mana of any color" or "pick a color", it functions exactly like a new color. So imagine it as yellow mana instead of a new, confusing generic.
Also thanks for not making a new thread just to ask that. Holy hell why does that keep happening?
It's neat having $200 floating around in my manabase. The price is actually kinda lost on me since I bought them some time ago and I'm only reminded of their current price tag when I get the rare compliment on them.
You fucking idiot, it does not function like a new color. Does it contribute to color identity? Can you choose "colorless" as a color for Iona? It's just a casting restriction, nothing more.
>"Let me start by saying I think the basic structure of your @ mana is solid. It manages to add a pseudo-sixth color in a way that is backward compatible." -Maro on colorless mana costs.
I practically have to have this page fucking bookmarked for you people.
>mfw people are still confused and getting upset about the difference between (1) and <>
I just hope my group doesn't try to pull confusion with this when we play EDH with Sol Ring
People are dumb as shit.
But it certainly doesn't help to explain it to the dumb masses when you introduce this shit IN THE LAST FUCKING SET OF THE BLOCK.
It should already have been in BFZ to actually showcase the mechanic, instead of issuing erratas for a set of the same block that was just released.
And no, the leaks don't matter - you either grasp the concept or you're too retarded to do so.

Yes, not like anyone said it was actually a sixth color.
