i was reading this yesterday. It is a suggested alternative color pie with colors not in magic. (Purple, Yellow Brown, Orange an Pink)http://art-blue-liberalism.blogspot.com/2012/06/new-mtgs-colour-wheel-yellow-orange.html
What's interesting is that even tough Pink seems to be the most vague philosophy; they are built around modern, more advanced philosphies
Yellow is individualist libertarianism
Orange is pessimistic realism
Purple is idealism (transhumanism maybe)
Brown ressembles marxist materialism
Pink is something like utilitarianism but still find it vague.
One or two of the colors fail to be represented as enemies or allies the way they are arranged. Pink and orange, for example, are not enemies at all.
I wonder how would this color pie translate mechanically.
I think this color would translate in long game strategies, sacrifice outlets, ramp and other things that support big finishers. That would make it similar to green and black. (I will put all my eggs in one basket, the best, biggest basket)
Realism could translate into what white is now, putting ceiling rules that avoid colors from going out of control. Orange never gets out of control anyways. (If I'm not having fun, neither are you, we are solving this fight the traditional boring way)
This color was actually suggested as an idea that never took off within Wizards, originaly it was the diametrical opposite of green, but this makes a lot more sense, what "rule bending" means might approach to blue, however, there should be some space for more explosive outcomes, more like what Izzet is today. (Wait for the perfect opportunity and combo off)
Materialism could very obviously be translated to artifact synergy, but it also could mean efficiency and replication, wide benefit and collective effort. (Go-wide, make the machinery work as a whole)
Utilitarianism is about maximizing collective benefit. Much like white, all your creatures are important, and even the meek can become important (Go-wide, improve each piece of your army)
Obviously, this is only y interpretation. had you seen this before?
