When asked about the theoretical case of adding purple as a sixth color, Mark Rosewater has said that he would nowadays add it to the center of the color pie, so that it would not specifically be an ally or enemy of any color but rather a totality of all the colors. This way, instead of it trying to carve out its own space in the color pie, it would borrow equally from all five colors. It would be a mix of abilities, almost all things the five colors can do, but mixed and matched in such a way that it could do things that couldn't normally be done in monocolor. This would also allow R&D to make some hybrid cards (probably a cycle) that are purple and another color. Finally, Rosewater said that if this were the case, he would look for a new mechanic that plays in a novel space that he would allow only the new color to have access to.
