The popular Standard deck 5-color control was made possible by the interaction between "Vivid" lands like Vivid Grove and Reflecting Pool, which with a Vivid land out can tap for mana of any color. The deck then uses a control deck building archetype, throwing all the best spells in Standard into one deck, and winning with a card with a powerful effect such as Cruel Ultimatum.
