Can colorless mana be generated from things that say "Add one mana of any color to your mana pool"?

One example card would be Coalition Relic.

Reasons:

  • For example for sunburst spells, when the caster wants less of the sunburst effect, for whatever reason.
  • You need to win the game with Scrapyard Salvo this turn, but you're one artifact in your graveyard short - casting a Sunburst creature as a 0/0 could be your only out

    In what circumstance are you envisaging that it would matter for your mana to be specifically colourless, out of interest? – thesunneversets Oct 19 '11 at 21:46

  • If you can get Sunburst at all, can't you just use your "add one mana of any colour" ability to add a colour you've already used? Genuinely curious and not dissing the original question - Magic is the sort of game where there must be a corner case where it'd be better for your mana to be colourless, I just couldn't think of one off the top of my head. – thesunneversets Oct 20 '11 at 9:16

    Let's suppose you need to win the game with Scrapyard Salvo this turn, but you're one artifact in your graveyard short - casting a Sunburst creature as a 0/0 could be your only out. Tortuous! But possible. – thesunneversets Oct 20 '11 at 12:31

    @thesunneversets, However, this question is still relevant to non-EDH decks as well. – cdeszaq Oct 20 '11 at 13:58

No, it cannot.

105.4. If a player is asked to choose a color, he or she must choose one of the five colors. "Multicolored" is not a color. Neither is "colorless."
