I just bought a pre made Commander deck, first one ever by the way. It has the legendary creature: Kynaios and Trio of Meletis. It has a casting cost of 1 mountain, 1 forest, 1 plains, and 1 island. In this pre made deck, that is sold by Wizards of the Coasts, there are Land and Artifact cards that produce Wastes when tapped. There are other Legendary Creature cards in the deck as well but none of them have Wastes as part of their colour identity. With no possible commander having wastes as part of its colour identity, is not this deck it self illegal? If so I feel that some sort of re-imbursement to those of us that purchased this deck that was made and sold by Wizards of the Coasts is in order seeing as we were sold a deck by the very company who's rules it is violating.

Hello and welcome to the forums and welcome to the format as well!

"Wastes" is not a color. Wastes are basic lands which tap for one colorless mana. There are only 5 colors of magic: Green, Red, Black, Blue, and White. It is the presence of these colors or their corresponding mana symbols which make up a card's color identity. The colorless mana symbol (which is a diamond shape seen on Wastes) does not effect color identity in any way as it does not have color.

Also, you seem like you were maybe asking for reimbursement here and I feel I should mention that these forums are not run by Wizards of the Coast. If you ever do need reimbursement from them, you should try contacting them on their site or through facebook or reddit or something. But you definitely do not need reimbursement from them in this instance; the decks are playable as-is (and I don't know whether they have reimbursed anyone who bought a Commander preconstructed deck from way back that had in it, which became banned later).

Hope you have fun playing with the deck!
