MAGIC THE GATHERING
There are currently more than 20,000 unique Magic cards. Magic recognizes five colors for mechanical purposes: white , blue , black , red , and green and colorless .
Each color has characteristic strategies, mechanics, and philosophies. These properties derive from commonplace associations with the colors themselves, and from the practical considerations of creating good gameplay.

Flavor text is the italicized text (but not in parentheses) on a Magic card that serves to provide a mood or give background information on the game world, but has no effect on gameplay.
Some cards have two or more versions with different art pieces. When these art pieces appear within the context of the same set, the cards are said to have alternate art. On the bottom line of each card you will find the illustrator's name.
