I think its largely irrelevant to keep arguing. I think anyone that thinks they would be OP should just build a deck and playtest it in their group.
If you want to argue OP Planeswalkers, you should probably argue for something that isn't Elspeth, Sun's Champion which would be really bad no matter how you spin it. She makes a couple tokens, or board wipes, for a ridiculous amount of mana. She doesn't have any innate combo potential with The Chain Veil , she can't run Doubling Season or Deepglow Skate . Some Planeswalkers would be powerful, Elspeth would be pretty damn Casual. Let's not even get into the fact, Mono-White...
You need abilities that impact the game in a significant way. Teferi, Temporal Archmage is good because he has abilities that can win the game, and he can run Stax effects without hurting himself much. Any deck worth it's weight can give Teferi a run for his money though. He shouldn't be banned, because he isn't that oppressive. He wins games, sometimes, and there are plenty of decks that can beat him.
Think about how many Planeswalkers are actually worth running, then figure out which of those would be good in the Command Zone. Are those you have left over ban worthy? I don't think so.
I play cEDH and I have Atraxa Superfriends to play as my pimp/Casual deck. Planeswalkers are cool, they are fun, and I love them, but Planeswalkers =/= Competitive. 95% of them would be perfectly find in the Command Zone, and a few would build really good decks, but I don't see any as oppressive as Leovold, Emissary of Trest for example.

See the commander specific piles for commanders which commonly play DD as a primary game plan.
But also here for reference I have seen Doomsday in:
Grenzo, Dungeon Warden - Alternative DD style
The Gitrog Monster - If you just want to over complicate your deck for no real benefit
Oona, Queen of the Fae - Not needed but heck it works
Dralnu, Lich Lord - Other UB commmander
Rip Leovold, Emissary of Trest ....
Yeah, it's rough my dude. A lot of these cards cost a pretty penny.

I agree with that Sultai is probably the best color combination for a Persistent Petitioners build. You have access to Bloodbond March and as SynergyBuild mentioned Thrumming Stone as well. This pairs nicely with an Isochron Scepter / Dramatic Reversal combo. Not to mention Paradox Engine shenanigans with Cryptolith Rite or Earthcraft effects on the battlefield.
Oh and Intruder Alarm as well! That would also synergize pretty well and can lead to a lot of broken ways to mill everyone to death. Damia, Sage of Stone is great for having that constant hand refill, but also Muldrotha, the Gravetide can be a decent commander as well.
Although he is banned, Leovold, Emissary of Trest is an advisor if your going for theme and hits that sultai color as well. Hope that helps!

lol. Welcome back!
This article provides an overview of major changes in the last few years.
They changed the mulligan rule. They did away with the 'tuck' rule for commanders. What else... ?
The commander pre-cons have been up and down, but the 2016 set had 4-color commanders and is considered the best (maybe ever). It also introduced partner commanders. Decklists
For the sweet new cards, check out the decklists from the last few pre-cons, as well as the Masters sets ($$$) and Battlebond. Teferi's Protection is uh... pretty good.

I can see why people say that it should be banned. Because there's no doubt it's a strong card. But strength of a card isn't what gets a card banned usually. The last time they banned a card for its strength was Prophet of Kruphix. Another recent ban was Leovold, Emissary of Trest because he sucks the fun out of magic. Look at some of the unbanned cards like Staff of Domination, Protean Hulk, and Metalworker. These cards are only combo enablers, much like Palinchron, and Deadeye Navigator. I remember when Consecrated Sphinx was on the ban watch list. Now because of a huge power creep in cmdr that card is fair. Now back to Helm of the Host, this card is not to powerful. Removing the legendary from the legend is a busted trick but, there's plenty of busted stuff in magic that are not banned. Just think about how many times you've played magic and someone demonstrates an infinite loop and says "I do this, and this. Then I do that, and i win".

Leovold, Emissary of Trest isn't Modern legal. It was only printed in non-Modern legal sets, being Conspiracy and Ultimate Masters.

Supplemental: The URL showcases some real horror this Gal is capable of... I thank Coward_Token for being some really great help. I plan to make something broken out of this; though this might result in a ban for Lavinia, Azorius Renegade for similar reasons as Leovold, Emissary of Trest; whatever his reasons why may be...
