Colors and Color Identity

You can find cards that are a certain color using the c: or color: keyword,
and cards that are a certain color identity using the id: or identity: keywords.

Both sets of keywords accepts full color names like blue
or the abbreviated color letters w, u, r, b and g.

You can use many nicknames for color sets:
all guild names (e.g. azorius), all shard names (e.g. bant),
all wedge names (e.g. abzan),
and the four-color nicknames chaos, aggression,
altruism, growth, artifice are supported.

Use c or colorless to match colorless cards, and m or multicolor to match multicolor cards.

Color search is strict by default, other colors will be excluded.
You can use comparison expressions (>, <, >=, <=, and !=)
to check against ranges of colors.

Find cards that have a color indicator with has:indicator.

Use the o: or oracle: keywords to find cards that have specific
phrases in their text box.

You can put quotes " " around text with punctuation or spaces.

You can use ~ in your text as a placeholder for the card’s name.

Use the fo: operator to search full Oracle text only,
which includes reminder text.

Mana Costs

Use the m: or mana: keyword to search for cards that have
certain symbols in their mana costs.

Negating Conditions

All keywords except for include can be negated by
prefixing them with a hyphen (-).
This inverts the meaning of the keyword to reject
cards that matched what you’ve searched for.

The is: keyword has a convenient inverted mode not:
which is the same as -is:.
Conversely, -not: is the same as is:.

Loose name words can also be inverted with -

Regular Expressions

You can use forward slashes // instead of quotes
with the
type:, t:,
oracle:, o:,
flavor:, ft:,
and name: keywords
to match those parts of a card with a regular expression.

Scryfall supports
many regex features such as .*?,
option groups (a|b),
brackets [ab],
character classes
and anchors
and $.

Forward slashes inside your regex must be escaped with \/.

Full documentation for this keyword is available on
our Regular Expressions help page.

Exact Names

If you prefix words or quoted phrases with !
you will find cards with that exact name only.

This is still case-insensitive.

Using “OR”

By default every search term you enter is combined.
All of them must match to find a card.

If you want to search over a set of options or choices,
you can put the special word or/OR between terms.

Nesting Conditions

You may nest conditions inside parenthesis ( )
to group them together.
This is most useful when combined with the OR keyword.

Remember that terms that are not separated by OR
are still combined.
