Colorless and Devoid[edit]

Basically the "color" of Artifact Creatures (though some colored ones have appeared) and eldritch abomination, as well as a decent chunk of artifacts. Colorless costs can be paid with any mana, which means they can be put in any deck with room for them. Blue does this the most, as it has weak creatures on its own and many abilities which interact with artifacts. Once had an empty diamond as a symbol and "wastes" as a land, but this was dropped after the one set that used it as a gimmick.
