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.
