You can't put the symbols in your deck when you build it, but you can produce the mana from cards that allow you to do so. A City of Brass will produce all 5 colours in our Daxos deck.

Just to clarify -- for Daxos specifically, you don't even need to generate any specific color of mana for casting that spell. His ability stipulates:

Quote:
Until end of turn, you may cast that card nd you may spend mana as though it were mana of any color to cast that spell.


This means you can get 3 blue mana from your lands then use it to cast an Abzan Charm exiled by Daxos, because you can spend your 3 blue mana as whatever colors you like for casting the spell you stole.

You'll still need the right colors of mana to activate, say, the abilities of a creature you stole & cast, though.
