This is Grell's most dangerous experiment yet, so he's relying on the wisdom of the ancient Byzantine engineers.

Card of the Day - Spitewind Efreet
Thought I'd try my hand at one of these fancy new multicolor/hybrid combinations. The deal with these is that they should work as a multicolor card of either of the two possible color combinations. This means that Spitewind Efreet should be printable as either a white/blue card or a blue/black card.
Flying - Blue then white then black. Red for dragons and phoenixes and such like. Almost never green. Untap - Blue. Sometimes green. Remove from combat - Red and white. Untap and remove from combat - White.
All right. The white/blue version of this card is obvious. But what reason could it have for being black?
Regeneration (The next time this creature would be destroyed this turn, it isn't. Instead tap it, remove all damage from it, and remove it from combat) - Black and green.
The efreet's ability functions as a sort of pseudo-regeneration. This allows it to be black.
