6/18/2021 You can choose any value for X. Choosing a higher value for X lets you pay more mana and thus spend more colors of mana to cast it. For example, if you choose 0 for the value of X and pay BlueBlue to cast Sweep the Skies, you’ll create one Thopter. If you choose 4 for the value of X and pay WhiteBlueBlueBlackRedGreen, you’ll create five Thopters.
6/18/2021 The maximum number of colors of mana you can spend to cast a spell is five. Colorless is not a color. Note that the cost of a spell with converge may limit how many colors of mana you can spend.
6/18/2021 Unless a spell or ability allows you to, you can’t choose to pay more mana for a spell with a converge ability just to spend more colors of mana. Likewise, if a spell or ability reduces the amount of mana it costs you to cast a spell with converge, you can’t ignore that cost reduction in order to spend more colors of mana.
6/18/2021 If there are any alternative or additional costs to cast a spell with a converge ability, the colors of mana spent to pay those costs will count.
6/18/2021 If you cast a spell with converge without spending any mana to cast it (perhaps because an effect allowed you to cast it without paying its mana cost), then the number of colors spent to cast it will be zero.
6/18/2021 If a spell with a converge ability is copied, no mana was spent to cast the copy, so the number of colors of mana spent to cast the spell will be zero. The number of colors spent to cast the original spell is not copied.
