Today, colors are always printed in wooberg cyclical order (...BRGWUBRGWUBRG...), but starting with whatever leaves the least space between colors. That's why a the modern oracle text gives GreenWhiteBlue instead of WhiteBlueGreen (The older version skipped black and red between the blue and green symbols, the newer version doesn't skip anything). There are two possiblities for wedge mana costs, but in practice they're ordered with the enemy color first then the two ally colors, for example BlackGreenWhite for Ghave.

And everybody knows Phelddagrif is an anagram of Garfield, Ph.D., right? It's a tribute to Richard Garfield, the creator of Magic.

We need more weird cards like this.

Play him as your multiplayer EDH general with tons of infinite mana combos.
Go infinite, give everyone trillions of hippos and trillions of life.

As far as I can see, coloured mana in mana costs is printed in the clockwise order of the color wheel: Green, White, Blue. Green comes first, then White, then Blue (followed by Black and Red, but these aren't relevant on this card). Older cards follow the same system but always begin with White and goes clockwise from there. White, Blue, ... ... Green.
WhiteBlueBlackRedGreen follows this pattern too but as it includes all five colours, it begins with the first colour on the wheel, White, as it's above the others. I'm interested to see what happens with Wedge creatures under this current system, whether it still follows this rule (closest to White comes first) or whether they make an exception just for those cards.

I knew a guy who had a Phelddagrif signed by the artist Melissa Benson. Why would he get it signed by a different artist? Because it's a flying purple hippo! It's not supposed to make sense.

If you rearrange the letters you get "Garfield PhD". Fun fact.

He's in Bant colors - wouldn't it have been great if a Bant knight had been drawn riding a Phelddagrif?
