The power of control. Blue is all about not letting your opponent make his moves, and ensuring your own. It also boasts some of the best draw power in the game.

Black Mana B.png

The color of death and decay. Black is about one thing, and one thing only: Winning. Even if it means having to hurt yourself in order to hurt your enemy more, or to hurt yourself to get more.

Red Mana R.png

The color of fire. Red has the ability to burn through your opponent's Life quickly, and mercilessly. Red is all about impulse and passion. Act first, think later.

Green Mana G.png

The power of nature and growth, green focuses on sheer brute force, and power-ups, with the drawback that some of these cards have high converted mana cost.

Colorless 1 Colorless Mana

Colorless cards have none of the above 5 colors in their cards cost.


Most of the time while cards are on the battlefield, the color of cards isn't that important. At many times, however, color is very important. Many cards have protection from certain colors, and others can't be blocked except by creatures with the same color as them. Many black spells can only destroy non-black creatures.
