LittleBlueHero I red the same or similar thread on the MTGSalvation and it does seem like a cool idea, but I think Wizards will stray a bit from such a dark and gloomy theme as printing 4 villains decks. Maybe 2v2 heroes and villains, but then again that does remind a little too much to the old duel decks.
As for a little side note: The recent sets (recent emm give or take 16 years :D) have tried to shift the focus on black as the main villain color towards the others, because black is more about individuality, which like other colors can be taken to extreme.
Non-black villains: Konda, Lord of Eiganjo - Stole That Which Was Taken in order to become immortal, which resulted in the Kami War Meloku the Clouded Mirror - Helped Konda with his plan, but intended to claim the entire plane for himself and the soratami.
Heliod, God of the Sun - After Xenagos, he's the second villain in the Theroes storyline. He also killed Elspeth.
Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite - Currently supposed elader of New Phyrexia
Dovin Baan - Major antagonist in Kaladesh and War of the spark story lines
Baral, Chief of Compliance - murdered Chandra's father, another major antagonist from Kaladesh
Pretty much the entire Consulate from Kaladesh is white-blue aligned.
Vivien Reid - while technically not a villain she does represent a ...certain side of the green mana. (MTGWiki quotes her saying that "She wants to destroy the cancer of civilization"...ouch)
Black heroes: Drana, Liberator of Malakir - Fought on the side of the Gatewatch against the Eldrazi.
Yahenni, Undying Partisan - Fought against the Consulate in the Kaladesh story line.
Toshiro Umezawa - major protagonist in the Kami War
Sorin Markov - despite his panache and the whole War of the spark scene with Nahiri, he's still one f the three who imprisoned the Eldrazi Titans. Also created Avacyn to protect mankind on innistrad.
Lord Windgrace - Fought against Phyrexia alongside the Nine Titans. Sacrificed himself to seal a time rift in Dominaria.
There could be more examples but I can't think of any at this time.
P.S. I may have gone overboard with this much examples as is :S

Actually I'll try my luck on the Four Colors myself: Starting w/ Yidris (), It lacks , which represents LAW & ORDER: MTG THE SERIES EDITION (XD), Discipline in a pinch, A sense of Morality in an Ethical Base (Thus Why One of Bruce Wayne/Batman's colors would be for an ethical code (He breaks.).), & is religious sometimes, always wants some kind of conformity, & needs to be Structured by governmental & Planning means. White seeks peace through Structure. All four other colors don't have this merit. In some way or another, any of the other 4 colors of the Pie will go berserk (Blue being too obsessed over Planning Reckt & Link (Second time I said that... Somebody make a second true sequel to Rozenkreuzstilette, please..), Black's Ambition, & Lust for Power would be the same as Oda Nogunaga's end result of his life, defeat. Red is the Rawest of Emotion of the five colors, & potentially the most Chaotic, & mentally out of it. & Green can go berserk at anytime like an actual animal w/ a bloodlust that murders others.). The reason why (Boros Legion) has Chaos in them at all, is part of the part of the Guild Identity.)
This is why if you don't include in this identity, all four colors will go Insane beyond a cure. Thus the reason whi it is dubbed as "Chaos"; sure, had some of the most evil characters in MTG, like Konda, Lord of Eiganjo , who intentionally pissed off a Kami-Sama named O-Kagachi, Vengeful Kami by stealing their That Which Was Taken , & Heliod, God of the Sun congratulated Elspeth, Sun's Champion after she committed Deicide on Xenagos, the Reveler , who killed the previous God, & replaced (Gender is the same as UNDERTALE-Era Chara.) as a result, & was killed by her, & congratulated her by killing her with her own Godsend , & sent Erebos to watch her, making sure she never leaves, even if Ajani Goldmane can intervene. Aside from this, is the color identity of Pure CHAOS, Working Nickname?: Discord. Don't ask; he's like this in the Season 1 Finale (At least) in MLP FIM.
On the topic of Breya's Colors, Green wasn't there as it seems to focus on some kind of Animal Instinct, As they abhor impurities (Look at Vivien's Arkbow , idiot. & look at any Mono- Enchantment ever made, Baka Yarou!). Their tuning with nature would make me want to say: Where did we get metallic materials? Your Peat; which evolved to Slate. As Green in all Planes of the Multiverse knows nothing of Peat: (Here comes a Dictionary Section: a brown deposit resembling soil, formed by the partial decomposition of vegetable matter in the wet acidic conditions of bogs and fens, and often cut out and dried for use as fuel and in gardening.)
White has conformity, which can help in a big BIG project. Blue is basically the Brains of these four colors. Black has Ambition, & can even help with ideas that are sometimes SO CRAZY, it just might help the project better. While Red can Destroy the land around it, & even Artifice, actually has a Passion for the project, & can even help in a pinch when an idea is weighed in on the For Color's Opinions. This color is also adventurous, meaning it believes if it can't work well enough, at least the other colors can help make a decision. What ever this BIG Project is, is that, thus why I call this Color Identity Nickname: "MIND≒0" (Hey, it's NOT A Persona 4 Ripoff, The Protagonist actually kicks ass, I hated Yu Narukami (IMO.), & The Captain's Attendant, or whatever isn't the main Antagonist here. There, I spoiled P4 for you. Just Play either Persona 3, or 5 instead, will ya?). But seriously though, I chose that name as the 4 colors of such creativity can even be a literal team, each w/ a good part to play for all 4 colors. Sure, has Impurities of their own, but sensing AEther, & creating organic life as a construct far from counts... Friggen elves of Kaladesh. -_-
Welp, that's 2 4c's down, 3 to go. I'd appreciate your thoughts on my case...

Blue is the second-best flicker color, and you're hard-pressed to find something better in Commander than Deadeye Navigator and Parallax Tide for flickering permanents out (Which is important if you're planning on playing Boardwipes that double as LD). As for Indestructible, Soul of New Phyrexia is probably the best you'll get asides That Which Was Taken .

I'd image that the easiest EDH General to build a full bore vorthos/lore deck would be Nicol Bolas because he had his fingers/claws dipped into so many other events and stories in his quest for power/ascension.

That Blade of selves is great. However i think the issue is that you need to attack for it. Which could mean losing valuable creatures. You need something that can keep them alive for the task like That Which Was Taken

Interesting topic. As wizards did more and more kawigawa characters in the last commander sets in Kaseto, Orochi Archmage, Yuriko, the Tiger's Shadow and O-Kagachi, Vengeful Kami, I really hope for more of those. Yuriko and kaseto aren't original characters, but still pretty cool. I'd love to see kyodai, the humanoid embodyment of That Which Was Taken. She's a lookalike of michiko konda and the child of o-kagachi. What a great card that would make. Awesome.
