@Vunik you still have the old versions in a 2nd post of your just above the PW commander entry by Asthanius.

Lowered L.Y.R.I.E.L.'s cost to White mana symbolBlack mana symbol, thanks Herz. Any other feedback is welcome.

@ spazlaz - Interesting concept, but the contest explicitly asks you to use Partner, so that design unfortunately does not work for the contest.

@ZephyrPhantom, spazlaz's design certainly can fit the competition, its just that its execution doesn't. Their card is effectively a meld card, and would be printed as something like this.

Bonnie 3 mana symbolBlack mana symbol
Legendary creature - Human Rare
Deathtouch
When ever a creature dealt damage by ~ this turn dies, draw a card.
Partner
Melds with Clyde.
1/4

Clyde 2 mana symbolRed mana symbol
Legendary creature - Human Rare
Tap symbol: ~ deals 1 damage to target creature or player.
If you control a creature named ~ and a creature named Bonnie, exile them, then meld them into Bonnie and Clyde.
Partner
3/2

Bonnie and Clyde
Black/red color identity Legendary creature - Human Rare
Deathtouch
When ever a creature dealt damage by ~ this turn dies, draw a card.
Tap symbol: ~ deals 1 damage to target creature or player.
4/5

My point is that the current design needs to reworked to actually have partner on it to appear on the polls.

@HerziQuerzi, the dash cost is both susceptible to and can cause the commander tax.

@bazzboda, @HerziQuerzi: I thought the commander tax only applied to being cast from the command zone.

That's true, but alternate costs such as dash also work out of the command zone.

Dash still casts it, unlike say Derevi's activated ability which just moves him.

I love "for each commander you control" makes partner better and taking other people's commander is encouraged.

Does anyone have feedback for my commanders?

I'll try something like this:

Batman wrote:
Batman 2 mana symbolWhite mana symbolBlack mana symbol
Legendary Creature - Human Knight Mythic Rare
Vigilance, first strike, reach
Whenever a creature dealt damage by Batman this turn dies, regenerate that creature.
Partner (You can have two commanders if both have partner.)
3/4
Superman wrote:
Superman 3 mana symbolRed mana symbolWhite mana symbol
Legendary Creature - Djinn Mythic Rare
Flying, trample, indestructible
2 mana symbolRed mana symbol: Superman deals 2 damage to target creature.
Partner (You can have two commanders if both have partner.)
5/3

You guys probably have better ideas for race and class than I do...

@spazlaz

Roven's end step trigger as it is will trigger once, if you want it to trigger every turn remove "next".

PW Roven's +X is broke, you need to put a comma after the +X and a Colon after Sac X creatures to make Sacrificing a cost.

@Ziolang: The white one doesn't work as expected, its boost wears off much earlier than damage, meaning that the +1 to toughness is usually pointless. I would make it an attack trigger (like the green one) that lasts until end of turn.

So I just whanted to get this one right. Asthanius took my first idea with Partner Planswalkers. So I droped that one.
Then I whanted a comander the could Tutor for the other one and legendary creature in you library, but I droped that one as well.
I whanted something that just screams partnership. and soulbond do that. So one should have soulbond. I was first looking for a horse and a knight, but it turned out to these two instead.

Entry

Rawlion is giving some for of Banding. I hope its clear how its works. they attack "as one" but they are still two creatures. I did not what a meld or transform effect, and I tihnk this works.)

Actually, I think a better solution for Roven's +X that would work with how PW abilities are formatted would be:

"Sacrifice X creatures. You gain X life. X can't be higher than the number of creatures you control."

And while I'm at it:

- Creature Roven's wording should be "At the beginning of your upkeep, destroy another target creature chosen at random. If that creature is named Alira, Crowned Princess, instead exile it and Roven, then meld them into Roven, Disgraced."
- Planeswalker Roven's ult should say: "...named Alira Returned with flying, lifelink and indestructible."

Remind yourself that overconfidence is a slow and insidious killer.

@spazlaz: I really like the idea of the card, but IMO Roven has the problem of being borderline unplayable without the meld. I'd say either he should be larger or have something like "Sacrifice a creature: Roven gets +1/+1 and gains menace until end of turn. Then, if you sacrificed a creature named Alira..."

I like the idea behind this challenge, so here's me giving it a shot:

Jeron, Memory's BaneBlue mana symbolBlack mana symbol
Legendary Creature - Human Rogue
Skulk
Whenever CARDNAME deals combat damage to a player, that player discards a card at random. If you control another commander, draw a card.
Partner
1/1

Kesvali, Oblivion Seer3 mana symbolWhite mana symbolBlack mana symbol
Legendary Creature - Human Wizard
When CARDNAME enters the battlefield, if you control another commander, you may destroy another target nonland permanent.
Whenever a permanent an opponent controls leaves the battlefield, gain 1 life and scry 1.
Partner
1/4

@Fermat: Aran's effect seems powerful enough to warrant Mythic Rare status. A simple test of this postulate would be to look at Kaervek. He has quite the powerful ability, so naturally, he's a rare. But what if his cmc was 3, like Aran's? That certainly seems like it would push it up into Mythic Rare, right (as well as pushing it into unfun territory {Come to Unfun Territory. It's where the miserable is!})?

Kaervek can be used as removal which makes it significantly better. I do agree that 1 mana symbolBlue mana symbolBlack mana symbol is too low though.

@sdfkjgh and jacqui: Any suggestions? Will 2 mana symbolBlue mana symbolBlack mana symbol suffice, or would 3 mana symbolBlue mana symbolBlack mana symbol for a 2/3 with this ability be safer?

Added names, types and a few other changes.

Strefan Maurer Black mana symbolRed mana symbol
Legendary Creature - Vampire Wizard Mythic Rare
Lifelink
At the beginning of your upkeep, choose a creature and draw a card. If you do, discard a card at random, and ~ deals damage equal that cards converted mana cost to the chosen creature.
Partner (You can have two commanders if both have partner.)
1/3

Khiesen, Golgari Sage 1 mana symbolBlack mana symbolGreen mana symbol
Legendary Creature - Elf Shaman Rare
When ever ~ deals combat damage to an opponent, you may return a land or creature card with a converted mana cost less then or equal to the damage dealt this way from your graveyard to the battlefield.
Partner (You can have two commanders if both have partner.)
3/2

While Khiesen is not an actual mtg figure, Strefan Maurer is, and is the progenitor of one of Innistrad's smaller vampire bloodlines, the Maurer line, and his discard abilities work well with discard vampires, including the "Twins of Maurer Estate".

@ZephyrPhantom
There is probably none. I just picked them out of flavor. Couldn't come up with any good ideas, so I just took the first that came to mind. I'm not that good with superheroes either. It's not something I'm particularly interested in...
Original idea was Batman and Robin, but I haven't watched any Batman movies or comics, so I have no idea what Robin is like...
