I am trying to write up cards with hybrid costs in them using the mana command, but I don't see any way to do that.



This was my first attempt to get a w/b symbol, and obviously it failed.

Is there any way to make hybrid mana symbols with this command?

From the command I'm not sure but you can always use the smiley or the following code;
Code:
:wb:

:wb:

Just [mc]wb[/mc] is ambiguous, so wrap the wb in parentheses so it's interpreted correctly: [mc](wb)[/mc] becomes .

The same idea applies to 2brid, large numbers, etc.: [mc](wb)(2w)(pw)(10)[/mc] => .



What in the world?

A user requested that symbol as a 5-color mana symbol for YMtC ("Spend only colored mana to pay this cost", or somesuch).

Thanks for the help. There should be a note about the parentheses in the tips bar, something like this:

Produce nice mana costs. Wrap symbols with parentheses to state hybrid costs, large numbers, and more.
