New Colourless Mana Confirmed

Happy Friday MTG peeps,

Today when we hit up our local gaming store, OMG! Games, here in Barrie, we're certain that all players will be yattering about the confirmation of Kozilek, the Great Distortion and the new Wastes land.  Confirmation came during a special spot on the World Magic Cup coverage with Rich Hagon and Ian Duke. 

Wastes is to be a typeless basic land slated to appear in Oath of the Gatewatch. Flavour-wise, this is associated with the blight left by the Eldrazi.   The colorless mana symbol (that diamond symbol we've all seen) will be used in Magic going forward, you won't just see it in Oath of the Gatewatch - represented by " {C} ".  The colorless mana symbol is also going to be used in cards that produce colorless mana. For example Mind Stone now produces {C} or Sol Ring produces {C}{C}.

This is NOT becoming a 6th color of magic. Mana Confluence cannot produce {C} and should you tap Sol Ring it produces {C}{C}.
