Legendary Creatures – Colour Combinations


While at lunch today I was pondering over how many legendary creatures would be ‘available’ under all the various color combinations, stretching from mono-colour through multi-colour to five-colour.

So here is the list of colour combinations that I ended up with, and the various results these give from The Gatherer database. By clicking on the various combinations listed you can get the relevant searches.





  • White/Blue/Black/Red – None
  • Blue/Black/Red/Green – None
  • Black/Red/Green/White – None
  • Red/Green/White/Blue – None
  • Green/White/Blue/Black – None

    Nice List, but it fails for me… even manually when i wanna White Blue Black Legendary Creature with no red and green involved the search gives back just ****

    Probably only my Pcs fault but…

    I Know u aint responsible(or i suppose u aint) but i just wanna say it, and thank you for trying to help me^^

    Hopefully the search will get fixed soon, dont know all WUB Legendaries and need 1 for my Flicker Commander(Try)

      Thanks for making me aware of this.
      The links have been working fine up until now, so I am not sure when they first stopped working as they used to.
      I’ve done some testing and it looks like the problem is at The Gatherer end. If I go to the database and do various searches it seems to ignore my selection criteria for colors, which would explain why the links have stopped working as they just pass selection criteria to the database. Unfortunately I have no control over Wizards card database, hopefully they will fix this soon as I will have to pull the post if their database will not return the proper results. That would be a shame because I made some changes a couple of months ago which made the links more robust to changes in the database. Darn

      As I thought, their card database is broken. I found this post on the Wizards MTG Forum

    Your links are certainly handy but may need some updating as they miss creatures like Daghatar, the Adamant who is a white creature but has a white-green-black color identity.

      Thanks for bringing that to my attention as I had not been curating this post owing to its age. The trouble is that I am using a gatherer search string to do this and the color attribute I use does not include color identity in its ‘hits’. If I come up with a simple way to change the search strings to hit those cards I will do that.

    This doesn’t include legendary creatures with colors in their abilities.
    These also count towards the color identity.
    For example: Alesha, Who Smiles at Death is a Red/Black/White commander
