Toshiro Umezawa

Legendary Creature — Human Samurai

Bushido 1 (When this blocks or becomes blocked, it gets +1/+1 until end of turn.)

Whenever a creature an opponent controls dies, you may cast target instant card from your graveyard. If that card would be put into a graveyard this turn, exile it instead.

I second seshiro_of_the_orochi's suggestion. Toshiro Umezawa is a fantastic commander.

I'm also a fan of Massacre Girl who is surprisingly easy to turn into a board wipe in the command zone. My list for her is here.

Toshiro Umezawa is a pretty nasty control/spellslinger commander. My list that's up here isn't perfectly correct, but the most important parts are there:

"Whenever you gain control of a permanent you don't own, return target instant or sorcery card from your graveyard to your hand."

This ability doesn't fit the flavor of feather, but it does allow you to return the spell that caused you to gain control, similar to how Toshiro Umezawa would allow a Terror to trigger his ability, and be the target of his ability.

You could always check out some tournment data or look at the lab maniacs cedh teir list for some ideas; granted you'd have to edit some due to the ban list. Toshiro Umezawa feels like the type of commander that would just tear a creature meta apart.

Titan Gomazoa 4UU

Creature - Jellyfish

Flying, Defender

Whenever a creature you control blocks, it gets +2/+0 until end of turn.

Whenever a blocking creature deals combat damage to a creature it's blocking, it deals that much damage to that creature's controller.

UUU: Each creature target player controls attacks this turn if able.

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

I love my Toshiro Umezawa mono black control deck, and I'm also a fan of Neheb, the Eternal as aggro with an equally strong late-game if he gets delayed.

Also, Savra, Queen of the Golgari is the best golgari commander and I will die on that hill. (Savra)
