Do lands have a color identity? Specifically,does Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth Buy have a color identity?

Quoting talldarkandgrusome:Do lands have a color identity? Specifically,does Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth Buy have a color identity?

Everything has a color identity. Color identity is derived from a card's mana cost, mana symbols in its rules text, and any relevant characteristic-defining abilities.

In general, lands have a color identity based on the mana they explicitly produce (not including "mana of any color"), based on basic land types it has and any other mana abilities that produce specific color(s).

Urborg has no mana cost, no mana symbols in its rules text (since it isn't a Swamp with the associated mana ability), nor any ability that gives it a color. Thus it is colorless, and it may be included in a deck regardless of who the commander is.
