I’m trying to make a Commander deck using Rona, Sheoldred's Faithful as my Commander but Magic Online won’t let me use it because I have off color cards.

I’ve looked through the deck list 5 times and haven’t found a single card that isn’t blue or black. I even tried taking out my colorless land cards but it doesn’t change anything. I looked at the thing that tells you the number of different mana colors mentioned in the deck and there were only black and blue.

The deck list is as follows:

What reasons could there be for Magic Online rejecting my deck?

  • Thanks @Hackworth for the fixes, I just ran them through a script to format them :) Commented Dec 16, 2022 at 12:24

Urborg Repossession violates your deck's color identity.

When making a commander deck, you may not include any cards that violate your commander's color identity. Color identity looks not only for the colors of cards in your deck, but also at any mana symbols that appear anywhere on those cards.

903.4. The Commander variant uses color identity to determine what cards can be in a deck with a certain commander. The color identity of a card is the color or colors of any mana symbols in that card’s mana cost or rules text, plus any colors defined by its characteristic-defining abilities (see rule 604.3) or color indicator (see rule 204).

In your particular case, Rona, Sheoldred’s Faithful has a blue and black color identity, so you may not include any cards whose colors include white, red, or green, or which have a white, red, or green mana symbol anywhere in it. Urborg Repossession has a black and green color identity, making it ineligible for your deck, because it contains the text:

Kicker {G} (You may pay an additional {G} as you cast this spell.)

  • Thanks for the help; for some reason Magic Online didn't tell me that there was a green mana in the deck.
