903.4. The Commander variant uses color identity to determine what cards can be in a deck with a certain commander. The color identity of a card is the color or colors of any mana symbols in that card's mana cost or rules text, plus any colors defined by its characteristic-defining abilities (see rule 604.3) or color indicator (see rule 204).

Example: Bosh, Iron Golem is a legendary artifact creature with mana cost Mana8.gif and the ability “Mana3.gifManaR.gif, Sacrifice an artifact: Bosh, Iron Golem deals damage equal to the sacrificed artifact's converted mana cost to target creature or player.” Bosh's color identity is red.
903.4a Color identity is established before the game begins.
903.4b Reminder text is ignored when determining a card's color identity. See rule 207.2.
903.4c. The back face of a double-faced card (see rule 711) is included when determining a card's color identity. This is an exception to rule 711.4a.
Example: Civilized Scholar is the front face of a double-faced card with mana cost Mana2.gifManaU.gif. Homicidal Brute is the back face of that double-faced card and has a red color indicator. The card's color identity is blue and red.
