Wedges are sets of three colors (a color and its two enemies) that form a wedge shape, or an acute triangle.[1][2][3]

Before Khans of Tarkir, the names used were Dega, Ceta, Necra, Raka and Ana,[4] and collectively referred to as Bizarralara (named after Bizarro, an enemy of Superman who's an imperfect clone of him).[5] These names come from five cycles in Apocalypse, i.e. Dega Disciple, Ceta Sanctuary, Necravolver, but were never the official names for the wedges.[6]

There were other unofficial names for the wedges prior to Khans, e.g. Junk [7].

The primary color within a Wedge is the color, that is enemy to both of the other colors. In Apocalypse the cards would focus around the primary color. Later in Khans of Tarkir the clans would focus on another color.[8]
