Good card it should totally be used... it could use a lil work like instead for the black part make it -1/-1 and for green +1/+1 but that is all that is wrong... for instance peppersmoke is a instant B, target gets -1/-1 then draw a card if you control a faerie... even though there is disfigure for B -2/-2 its still to good to take a creature down 2 same with the green... this card would be sweet with a star burst deck... what would be even better is to make it cost 2 or put RWGUB intwine on it...

Really i do like this card. But it should have an effect like create a 1/1 token if used colorless for it. that would make it really bad ass.

I really do like the way it was curved to be fair and versatile. My only comments would be to make white add a 1/1 soldier, because gain-life is rather useless; and green might be better suited to a +1/+1 counter; and the current blue ability is the equivalent to a sorcery cycle, but I don't think there's something that would be fitting and not make the card overly wordy.

Honestly this would be AMAZING if this were an instant much more playable that way, at sorcery speed it's to slow.

Fairly balanced; the cost makes it more versatile in mulitcolor, rather than more powerful.

I'd recommend taking popular common instants from each color for the abilities; my personal choices would be giant growth, lightning bolt, healing salve, ponder, and disfigure. Sorcery speed keeps it balanced.

Also, instead of "Essence of Mana is All colors,"
Have something like: "If red was spent to cast Essence of Mana, it's red. Deal 3 damage to target player."
Etc. Might make the wording too long, though.

My honest question is why this hasn't been card of the month yet, stupid yu-gi-oh cards that aren't even that good are beating this..
