Card of the Day - Arici Charm

A few years back, WOTC released the Shards of Alara set, in which five separate worlds, or "Shards" were put together in one set.  Each of those shards had only three colors of mana available to them.  For instance: Jund, the Red/Green/Black shard, was a place of brutal survival and dangerous predators.

I'm taking this concept a little further by introducing the 'Wedges" of something-or-other.  Five distinct worlds that have only three colors of mana.  The difference is that these worlds share a pair of allied colors and the color that is their common enemy.

The first of these is Arici, the White/Black/Red Wedge.  This plane has a large city which is ruled by a devil masquerading as a human.  Only a few people at the top know that their Emperor, Isba, is utterly evil. His corruption sinks into everything in the plane of Arici.  If one were to spend a little time there, one would be hard-pressed to miss the fact that the lovely marble pillars are veined with something impure.

Tomorrow I will introduce you to the mechanics of Arici.
