Can I use cards that also have a colorless cost with Feaether the Redeemed as Commander?

Asked by Bellthazarr 1 month ago

I'm wondering not just for Feather but overall - Can I use a card that also have a colorless cost along with a colored cost that matches my commander, like Shatterstorm ? And what about only colorless cost cards like Scion of Ugin , can they be used in a Feather, the Redeemed Commander deck as well?

Colorless is not a color. Since neither Shatterstorm , nor Scion of Ugin contain colors that Feather, the Redeemed does not they are both legal in a Feather deck.

As an aside, since it may come up at some point. Neither Shatterstorm nor Scion of Ugin require any colorless mana. Starting with Battle for Zendikar they have differentiated between colorless and generic. Both of the mentioned cards have generic mana in their mana cost. Colorless is denoted by the symbol as on Spatial Contortion and Kozilek, the Great Distortion

Gidgetimer Fantastic! I actually knew they changed colorless to generic and made a colorless symbol - forgot! lol. As for Shatterstorm and Scion of Ugin those were just random references for examples. Although now I'm wondering if actual colorless like Kozilek, the Great Distortion would still be ok with a Feather, the Redeemed Commander Deck. +1 for the answer btw!
