A companion for Teferi, Temporal Archmage...
Deeadiin, Eternal Perfection
Legendary Creature - Elemental Illusion
Companion - Your starting deck contains only permanents
~'s power is equal to the number of cards in your hand
~'s toughness is equal to the number of nonland permanents you control
Tap four untapped permanents you control: Players may not cast noncreature spells this turn
I don't know if we want to do the entire 10 card command walker cycle, but I would at least like to see a companion for Ob Nixilis of the Black Oath.

I imagine Vivien becoming Temur, as she is both inquisitive and I can imagine her becoming enraged by the abuse of animals, as with Ixalan's Vampires. Sarkhan Unbroken is the sole Temur Planeswalker.
Vivien of Qal Sisma
Legendary Planeswalker - Vivien
+1: Create a 2/2 green Archer Shaman creature token with Reach. Draw a card.
-2: Vivien of Qal Sisma deals 3 damage to either each creature with flying or each creature without flying.
-9: Draw a card for each creature you control, then each player may put any number of creatures from their hands into play. Creatures you control gain haste and you may have them fight any number of target creatures.
I'd like a companion for a planeswalker commander (sentient or non-sentient, as Planeswalkers are kinda next-level) Ten options:

Unless otherwise specified (as for Ob Nixilis of the Black Oath ), planeswalker cards cannot be used as commanders.

@PhotogenicParasympathetic: Peter Capaldi as the Nth Doctor (Remember, Heaven Sent; basically had The Doctor regenerate Hundreds of Billions of times while counting as one.): I'll start with the obvious.
It's ironic you'd recommend Ajani, the Greathearted over Ajani Unyielding for the top ten. MSully_17 actually suggested using Intruder Alarm for a loop between Sliver Queen & Jiang Yanggu, Wildcrafter ; tap 2 +1/+1 Counter Creature tokens, make a Sliver Token, all creatures untap. Something that Superfriends would even have as the equivalent of 1,000,000's of 1/1 Squirrels. Most likely; I'll change the CMDR back to Sliver Queen for this notion.
But back to the other notions:
What's your thoughts on Kasmina, Enigmatic Mentor ? She Taxes opponents, makes you Tokens, & even Loots after token creation.
What about Ob Nixilis of the Black Oath ? After whatever kind of combo to note that I just mentioned, is he any better than Sorin Markov NUMERO I ? His emblem might even be really useful in a plethora of situations...
Ugin, the Ineffable ?: Yeah, I've no Colorless worth chopping the price by . At least making a 2/2 via Topdeck Exile still prevents your enemies from ever knowing what it is, until you have your hand with it in it. But maybe you might be right about this not worth adding into this...
Will Kenrith : Stunned you have no say on this; Will can do actual Transfiguraion; something not even Kasmina, who should be able to do this, has no proof of this. He can even pay for your Walkers, Instants & Sorceries. You can even choose yourself to allow yourself to copy instants, & Sorceries as an Emblem. But I've a bigger interest on one of these thoughts:
The Hated Walkers that Help with so DAMN MUCH. : So many people have hated all 3 of these walkers, & don't care about the idea if infinite activations of Loyalty Abilities on the fly w/ any of these 3. Rowan, for starters, forces target player to attack w/ everything they got. This is a problem in the past, but has since been improved because of a Walker you stated I should cut: Angrath, Captain of Chaos ; & even adding Crawlspace means attacking me w/ 2 creatures just simply gets better when you realize you can block both w/ one each; negating the attack from there. Did I also mention this Angrath would love to play some Jund w/ Doubling Season as well? Amass 2 will create a 0/0 Zombie Army token w/ 2 +1/+1 Counters. Add ol' Doubler, & it is a 4/4 instead. See? I told you this has use. Plus, Rowan's Emblem is actually worth using in a pinch. Now for Daretti, Ingenious Iconoclast . He makes 0/1 Construct Tokens w/ Defender; & they can be used as fodder when destroying opposing Artifacts & Creatures; The Construct is actually an Artifact Creature Token you know. Even making 3 Copies of whatever Artifice you need is pretty good; especially since you can also do this in your yard; not just your field. Lastly, Saheeli, Sublime Artificer ; just casting noncreatures as a whole gives you 1/1 Servos. If you can use them to make copies of already existing Aftifacts, this is reason enough to keep all 3. But what's so wrong about Sundial of the Infinite ? It actually helps more for the walkers than so many other things; namely: "Until end of turn", & "This Turn" effects. Those copies are going to stay even if they are forced out of the game in the first place.
Ashiok, Dream Render : Players are definitely going to need to tutor, or just straight up search for anything, which is basically nullified by Superfriends' own Stranglehold . Also, Destroying Enemy Graveyards can actually be extremely useful against those who can use the yard to their advantage. Just imagine a Reanimator deck user's response when he has to use it that much.
That said, again, I'd like some thoughts on all this. Thank you for your time. :)

Samut, the Tested cannot be a commander.
Only legendary creatures and other cards that say "CARDNAME can be your commander" can be your commander.
For example, Mayael the Anima or Samut, Voice of Dissent can be your commander. So can Ob Nixilis of the Black Oath - note the text at the bottom declaring he can be your commander. Only a small subset of Planeswalkers can be commanders.
Some playgroups use a variation of the rules to allow any Planeswalker to be a commander, or play a Commander variant that otherwise allows this, but it's not part of the common ruleset.
Regarding another detail here..
All planeswalkers are legendary now. There was a rules change awhile back to make it so, and at the same time it removed the "planeswalker uniqueness rule" so you can have multiple planeswalker cards depicting the same character, as long as they are not the exact same one.
For example you can control Ob Nixilis Reignited and Ob Nixilis of the Black Oath at the same time without having to put one into a graveyard, even though neither of those has the Legendary printed on the most recent edition of the card, it is something all planeswalkers have now. If you get a second copy of Ob Nixilis of the Black Oath into play, you must choose one to keep due to the Legendary rule.
