Which relatively underpowered Mono and Dual-Color Commanders would benefit 100% from the inclusion of the Partner mechanic?

Personally I'd include Judith, the Scourge Diva , Yorvo, Lord of Garenbrig , and Daxos of Meletis in this list. They'd make a huge impact if they were able to Partner.

Who would you choose?

See, Gidgetimer, that's what I suspected too, at first. That's why I used Daxos of Meletis (a bloated card) as an example.

ZendikariWol on Legendary Creature Rules Text

Some legendary creature cards ( Daxos of Meletis and God-Eternal Bontu ) use only the card's name in its rules text (saying "Daxos of Meletis" each time it refers to the card, and never simply "Daxos").

Some legendary creature cards ( Brimaz, King of Oreskos and Alirios from THB) use the creature's card name once and uses its canon name the rest of the time.

Other legendary creature cards ( Keranos, God of Storms and Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger ) use only the character's canon name, never rattling off the full name of the card.

Where is the consistency here?! Is there a rule I'm not seeing? If you need a frame of reference, take a look at New Format: Unlikely Alliances. It includes every legendary creature (except those from Dominaria and Kamigawa but whatever). But if there's a templating rule that I'm not seeing, then, well, I'm not seeing it.

Back again.

Sure, I'm at 100 cards. But we've a huge situation after all those cuts that should've changed the meter. Is it not meant to be fixed?

Whatever, this is Deck 1 that although at 100 Cards, I just don't see enough consistency for this to work properly. Here is what I believe to be the best of each:

Cloudblazer (Card Advantage & Life Gain? OH YEAH!) Daxos of Meletis (Just buff him once, & only spot removal & wraths can end him.) Deputy of Acquittals (Another Venser when we need it.) Fiend Hunter (How did this make it in?) Grand Abolisher (This is the best we got for Lockdown.) Kambal, Consul of Allocation (Taxes for casting nothing but anything not a Creature.) Kynaios and Tiro of Meletis (Group Hug? Not here. Two Benevolent Kings will destroy you.) Lavinia, Azorius Renegade (I wonder if she can do well w/ Kynalos and Tino... Oh, & STACKS.) Marchesa, the Black Rose (It's either you have low life or this stays cut.) Why didn't you decrease for me cuttung a staple like Meren?! (Uh, Recursion?) Mother of Runes (Ditched Cartel Aristocrat as at least she can be used on any of my Humans.) Reflector Mage (Still on the bend on this one.) Thalia, Heretic Cathar (Uh, Stax?) Thalia's Lieutenant (HUGE Boost throughout my humans.) Trophy Mage (At least most of my "Trophies" are Cast.)

Also:

Kenrith, the Returned King : (Recursion, Life gain, +1/+1 Buffs, Card Advantage, even giving everyone Haste & Trample is awesome. DO NOT CUT IT.)

I hope this helps in case you want to improve on this also. Signing out.

Benthehen333 - Absolutely! Not a problem. Excited to see the "Still Budget Upgrade List" for sure! I'm hoping to branch out and get more fun "Budget" decks after I made my first EDH Deck modeled after a Voltron Kozilek, the Great Distortion . The deck is a little strong for my meta as well, with the exception of two other not budget decks. If you care to see it: Koz, Colorless EDH Deck

To answer your question I looked at The Tax Man Cometh by KayneMarco and I would prefer you didn't by Molesto-the-Egregious as references: Disruptive Student , Vodalian Mage , Disruptive Pitmage , Turn Aside , Approach of the Second Sun , Kasmina, Enigmatic Mentor , Dovin, Hand of Control , God-Pharaoh's Statue , Monastery Siege , War Tax , Lavinia, Azorius Renegade , Daxos of Meletis , Baird, Steward of Argive , Aven Mindcensor , Teyo, the Shieldmage , The Wanderer , Time Wipe , Foresee , Azor's Elocutors , and Marble Diamond are several Non-Land Sub $1 cards I saw in there as well. The list goes on, for sure. I didn't look into it beyond this but any W/U or Colorless card that let's you draw when an opponent draws would be fantastic. Mind's Eye would be a good Sub $5 card I know of, if there were to be upgrades in that deck.
