Card of the Day - Ersatz Shade

I think it might be possible to make a symbol for mana that can only be spent as colorless.  Maybe we can use a C to show it?  With the reminder text (You may only use colorless mana to pay for C.)  Here's the same card with the new format.

Any thoughts?


  1. I don't think that the concept of "C" is as easy to grasp / natural as the circled numbers. There may be a special symbol (but not a letter) like spending snow mana (which is the closest thing in RL, but hasn't catched up as well).

    The reminder text should be below the activated ability.

  2. I get the idea but don't like the C-circle. I admit to liking Unaligned (the flavor is nice). Anyone have a better idea?

  3. I would use a different symbol if I could (a gear, maybe?), but the program I use to make these cards doesn't have the option to use homemade symbols. The hint I old like the most about that over Unaligned is he fact that you can cost a spell at 3cc instead of 5 with unaligned.
