Activated abilities of stolen permanents.

Asked by Ranthar 2 years ago

If my Commander is Admiral Beckett Brass and I user her ability to gain control of a permanent with an activated ability outside my color identity (i.e: Akroan Jailer), could I use a card like Chromatic Lantern or Mycosynth Lattice to use that ability?

Yes, there is no restriction on the types of man's you can use in commander, only on the cards you can put in the deck.

Note that this is a change from earlier versions of the Commander rules. It often seems like it takes a while for knowledge of Commander rules updates to finish spreading around the community.

Thanks guys, I read a ruling about not being able to use mana outside of one's color identity. I just wanted to be sure.
