How does this interact with X spells? I've never been able to figure this out. If I'm Fireballing someone for 5 with this in play, do I only have to pay 4 for X? In other words, does this automatically add +1 to all X effects? Or are X costs just unaffected by it?

Generic Mana, its the ol' Roy of Colorless Mana...
4/5 Stars

I wasn't sure about that too. Checking the rules shows that cost modifiers are applied AFTER everything else, so if you wanted to flashback something or pay an X cost, it indeed works that way.

Generic mana? No sir, I buy the name-brand mana, even though it costs more. It's a matter of principle.

"One generic mana". That sounds pretty cool.

Sensei's Divining Top would like a word...

Honestly a pretty decent card - double value for Affinity artifact decks.

My dad has been playing since around revised, he still calls it "generic mana", the old fogey.

"All spells in each player's hand have affinity for Helm of Awakening"

In multiplayer:

2x Sensei's Divining Top
Helm of Awakening
Jace's Erasure

Everyone dies on their draw step.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
