List of Interesting Pauper EDH Commanders

Unknown Budget Casual Multiplayer Pauper Theme/Gimmick


I wanted to start a list of interesting commanders for pauper/peasant EDH, feel free to chime in if you have any good ideas. (Just a reminder that you can't have your commander or any other cards in your deck be rare or mythic. As a result, you can have a common or uncommon nonlegendary creature as a commander.)

Here are the rules if you want to read up on them.

Finally a reminder, based on rule 702.35b and one rule that I can't find again that references alternative costs, you still need to pay commander tax on an evoke creature since it is still being "cast" and not being directly put into play like Derevi, Empyrial Tactician.

Some Pauper Commander playgroups and tournaments lower starting life totals to 30-35, and commander damage to 15-18. This done to speed up games and make aggro decks and Voltron commanders more viable. I've also seen a variant where you could activate your commander's abilities from the command zone.
