A mana stone, or mana rock[1], is an artifact that produces mana.

Description[edit | edit source]

Mana stones are often employed at common to enhance mana quality or color fixing in limited and regularly come in cycles when producing colored mana, though often they produce colorless mana and have additional abilities.

Mana Stones are popular in Commander as a means to speed up the game as mana stones are additional mana sources that continuously provide extra mana. Artifact creatures and cards that require the sacrifice of permanents are not considered mana stones.

The Moxen can also be considered mana stones.
