After much discussion, and some strong opinions on both sides, we've decided that EDH will be better served by continuing with the current system: Half-offcolour hybrid cards are not allowed in EDH decks.

The reasons on both sides are numerous, but in the end the format benefits in several ways from maintaining the restriction to "fully on-colour" cards. Diversity of cards played is increased, proper segregation of the colour-pie is protected, and the flavour of decks is better maintained by this rule.

We realize this might be a little frustrating to some deck builders (myself included sometimes), but in a way this gives more freedom to those same builders by increasing the aforementioned diversity of playable/"best" cards. I'll leave this thread open for post-mortem discussion, but as always please keep it civil.

So, to restate... cards with the {R/G} mana symbol may only be played in EDH decks whose general is both Red and Green. This will continue to be true after the release of Eventide.
