Mana Costs for Monsters[edit]

Okay so summoning monsters is going to go by CR. so lets say that i wanted to summon a red dragon wyrmling, It has a CR of 4, and its a red creature, so its mana cost would be four of any color and a red mana. The formula for mana cost and creatures should be as follows:

CR of the creature in mana of any color and of the creatures color, then 1 mana of the creatures color for every 5 CR.

Creatures with a CR of less than 1 have a mana cost of one mana of the creatures color.

And for the sake of not breaking the game, id say only keep the CR of the creatures to 20 and below.

When summoning creatures of a CR of 1 or less, you may summon two of a CR of 1/2, 3 of 1/4, and 4 of 1/8.
