 Post subject: Colorless Mana and Generals

I was just introduced to this format and am trying to build my first deck.
I have a quick question about the general rules.

Let's say I choose Sygg as my General.
Am I allowed to have cards with colorless mana in their casting cost even though my General is only Black and Blue. Also, can I play lands that can generate colorless mana, or would those be illegal as well.

Thanks

Yes, colourless mana (both symbols and generation) is allowed, as it's not technically a colour

I think the rules apply to mana symbols only, so cards with no mana symbols on them are kosher.

Awesome.
I was afraid for a moment. It was going to be really hard to build a deck with only colored mana symbols

I must imagine Sliver Queen is a commonly picked General, right?

Any of hte 5 color Generals are commonly picked. They are also commonly scorned (by me) if the only reason you're picking them is so you can have all 5 colors.

I try to encourage the view that if you're picking a 5-colour general just for the colours, you really ought to have Atogatog...

My favorite 5-color general is Horde of Notions, second to Karona.
Horde goes SMASH SMASH SMASH, and Karona gets very political.

It rather annoys me when a player chooses a five color general for the WUBRG, and never plays it (the general, that is!!)!! Just a pet peeve...

End of Line

Sliver Queen's ability seems pretty solid as well.

After much contemplation I've decided to go with Vorosh.
I like the color combination and his ability to wreak havoc once he is out.

I'm also considering Razia for a second deck. Is she a common choice?
She paves the way for things like Akroma and Decree, which both seem amazing in this format.
