Each of the five colors in the Magic game specializes in certain kinds of spells and abilities. It’s up to you whether to master one color or all five.
The sprawling plains, populated by soldiers, clerics, and angels, provide white mana.
In the Magic world, white is the color of law, order, and structure. It can stop an attacking creature in its tracks by making it see the error of its ways. White magic heals and protects creatures.
Mages that use white mana prefer to send an army of smaller creatures into battle, but sometimes a single, awesome champion is necessary to teach the enemy a lesson.
Islands provide blue mana, the color of the deep sea and the endless sky.
The strength of blue magic lies in trickery and manipulation. Blue mages work behind the scenes, scheming and stealing secrets, controlling their environments completely before making a move.
Blue spells and abilities focus on “borrowing” opponents’ cards and drawing the right card at the right time. With the power of blue, call wizards and weird beasts of the air and oceans to serve you.
Black mana comes from dank swamps, where things fester and rot.
Death, disease, selfishness, power at any cost—these are the twisted values of the darkness. Black magic is powerful and easy to wield, but it comes with a high price. Its spells and abilities can warp the mind, poison the land, and turn creatures into nothing.
Dark minions, undead creatures, and unspeakable horrors are native to the swamp, and they’re as self-serving and treacherous as the mages who command them.
Red mana comes from the mountains and the fiery heart of the world itself.
Red magic is filled with fire, frenzy, and storms of rock and lava. Its creatures are warlike and dangerous, ranging from mighty dragons to hordes of rampaging goblins.
Mages who master red magic have no patience for talk or subtlety. They act quickly and recklessly. Red mages can channel their wild emotions to crush the ground you walk on or to wield flame like a living weapon.
The teeming forests overflow with green mana, which represents the pulse of nature.
Green magic is about growth, life, and brute force. Green mages understand that the world obeys the law of the jungle—everything is either predator or prey.
Some green creatures are rich, living sources of mana, but no other color can boast creatures as powerful. Green creatures are the biggest and mightiest around, from towering nature elementals to carnivorous wurms.
