What is the objectively most-powerful commander for blue and green?

My personal favourite is Momir Vig, but I don't think he's the best.

Some powerful options include: Edric, Spymaster of Trest , who can generate considerable card advantage; Rashmi, Eternities Crafter , who gives you card advantage and sometimes free spells; and Momir Vig, Simic Visionary , who you have mentioned, who both tutors and provides card advantage (there is a theme here).

I would not say any of these are objectively the best--commander has too much variation based on the meta and other decks being played to apply an "objective" standard--but each is pretty powerful, and can serve as a strong engine in their respective decks.

I am a large fan of 4 lists, Hulk Vannifar, Hackball Momir, Thrasios/Kydele Combo, and Edric Turns. I would say overall, Thrasios/Kydele is the best though, all are similar in powerlevel and are great cEDH decks!

No love for Experiment Kraj or Ezuri, Claw of Progress ?

Experiment Kraj can utilize your opponents' creatures' abilities too...

Oh, I LOVE Ezuri, Claw of Progress , Steelspike, but he's not super competitive... I think? If anything is close, though, it's my brew.

It's probably between Thrasios, Triton Hero ; Rashmi, Eternities Crafter ; or the new Prime Speaker Vannifar . Personally I'd probably say Thrasios but I don't really play simic so my thoughts on it aren't really worth much.

I think as far as simic commanders, it really depends on what you want. Edric, Spymaster of Trest is obviously a powerhouse in turn decks, Prime Speaker Vannifar is probably going to be amazing in combo decks and Rashmi, Eternities Crafter is amazing as a controlling commander (don't doubt that card advantage). Personally, I think Pir, Imaginative Rascal and Toothy, Imaginary Friend are seriously underrated.

Thrasios, Triton Hero is the most competitive since his ability can get you insaaaane value, but there are some cards with great potential if you build into them well enough, like Experiment Kraj (which my buddy built) and my personal favorite: Pir and Toothy. Thanks dbpunk for mentioning them!
