Mechanics of the Colorpie

The color pie is the pentagram of Magic's colors: white, blue, black, red and green. Each of Magic's mechanics is related, in one way or another, to this pentagram. Indeed, some colors are specialized in certain areas. Mark Rosewater, in Mechanical Color Pie, presents a classification system for these mechanics according to what the colors are supposed to do first in the game.
