RiotRunner789 on nonlegendary cards that'd be good ...

There are the nephilims. They apparently were supposed to be legendary but weren't due to an oversight. (Though its been a while since I read that, if any one has a link to the designer saying that it would be great).

Dune-Brood Nephilim, Glint-Eye Nephilim, Ink-Treader Nephilim, Witch-Maw Nephilim, Yore-Tiller Nephilim

I like them since there are not many 4-color commanders (partners excluded) and they are fairly unique. I think it would be fun if WOTC reprinted similar/throwback versions that were legendary and put them in a non-standard set.

Once more, I’m not claiming to know more here, but that subtle difference seems to be a downfall in the Ink-Treader Nephilim-Mirrorwing Dragon case, as for one a single Murder is a board wipe for all, but for the other it’s a one-sided one, where the player whose cards are wiped is the active player of the Murder. Seems abusable.

Excuse me if I’m completely overlooking something here, but isn’t Ink-Treader Nephilim basically just a quad-colored Mirrorwing Dragon?

We didn't see the Nephilim in the return sets because they all died in the original Ravnica block.

My position is: Always ask before playing a nonlegendary commander deck. Respect their no. No one is obligated to play against a deck just because you built it.

On the flip side of things, they are mechanically unique and, with the exception of Ink-Treader Nephilim, not too overpowered or consistent. So give them a shot.

The only thing with Ink-Treader Nephilim is they can basically board wipe with a single Murder

I personally think they should be legendary. In particular, Dune-Brood Nephilim, Ink-Treader Nephilim, and Yore-Tiller Nephilim offer unique abilities that the other four color commanders and partner pairs don't.
