@sneekygoblin: Most games you'll find are going to be casual multiplayer. While there are "top tier" decks like Tatyova, Benthic Druid, Disciple of Deceit, Ley Weaver/Lore Weaver, Zada, etc. basically all of these decks come down to some variation of a Ghostly Flicker/Freed from the Real combo or something where the commander is a unique combo piece like Izzet Guildmage or Malcom, Keen-Eyed Navigator. That is to say, most of the cPDH decks are like cEDH where there are a lot of variations of similar concepts. Where the format diversifies and shines are the mid-to-high power decks, which have a ton of variation and commander choices. Because the decks are so cheap, it is possible to have multiples of both cPDH and PDH decks for the cost of an average EDH deck.
I agree the Partners will most likely affect the format, just as they did with EDH, but not in a bad way; I think it will actually help to diversify the top-end of PDH while the lower-power partners will find their place in casual games or not at all. As exciting as some of them are there are still similar or better options for a lot of combinations available at Uncommon.
I guess we'll have to agree to disagree on the Legendary rule, I think using any uncommon is a feature, not a bug.
Also, if you are looking to play the PDH Homebase discord linked in the Primer has online play groups looking to play most days.

griffstick- first off if you are not already, I would recommend joining the PDH discord (which is linked above). Second, I do not think that PDH has been "figured out" as EDH or other formats have been. This is due to the small number of players and data that is available. What I mean is that of the few that play this relatively niche format only some are competitive players and even fewer are part of the community trying to help figure PDH out. Third, Lore Weaver/Ley Weaver is really good. It can combo really quickly but as for being the best of the best-- I do not know. All of the tier 1 decks have their strengths and weaknesses and all will be able to do very well in games. As in all singleton formats, it is very hard to have a deck that is able to do (or at least try to do) what it wants to do just because you might not draw the cards you need and opponents might just have too much disruption.
As for my top 5? I do not have a list of my own but this one by Podkomorka is definitely a good place to start if you are looking to build a competitive deck. And that is not to say that there might be another commander out there not on the tier 1 list that just has not been brewed yet or brewed to be competitive. As I said, PDH has a very small amount of players so it takes a while for the best iteration of a deck to come along.
The best I can give you as far as my own top 5 is the qualities I look for in a commander when looking for a good/tier 1 commander:
- Is it a draw engine/does it generate card advantage
- Is it in blue (thats not to say there can be a tier 1 deck outside of blue but as I said before, blue is good)
- Is it a low enough mana cost (generally unless you are able to ramp: 4cmc and below is a good bench mark. Anything 5+ depends on the commander)
- After the top three have been met I search around on Scryfall for cards that I think would make this deck good and make sure there are enough for the deck to be consistent.
- Is the deck going to be fun to pilot/will my friends hate me for playing the deck (i.e. land destruction, not really a good deck but its very mean)
Hope that helps :)

Could you say that with this limited card pool. As magic stands right now. Is pEDH figured out. There's only a few ways to generate infinite mana. It's what you do with it that makes the deck. Does that mean that we could possibly say that from the top 6 tier 1 pEDH Cmdr's. That there is one that stands out above all as the number 1 Cmdr and exactly how it would be built. Is that Cmdr Lore Weaver Ley Weaver?

You could cut some of the less exciting hydras such as Capricopian, and Feral Hydra. Capricopian ability is actually a downside if you are trying to kill the bothersome opponent. Feral is just wanting. Recommended Stonecoil Serpent or Voracious Hydra, or Steelbane Hydra.
Last few recs would be Demonic Consultation with Thassa's Oracle and Ertai's Meddling. Demonic is instant speed, card to hand. So, if everyone is tapped out it can be a hail mary (rather than a combo piece) for one of the infinite mana enchantments. Ertai's meddling is a great counter and it gets you a hydra.

I don't have full lists on the decks im building and none of them are fine tuned, more just rough estimates of what the decks will look like. So far I have been trying to figure out the commanders that are viable on a competitive level and so far have found these commanders to be on a competitive level
- Auriok Salvagers
- Baleful Strix
- Chakram Retriever+Chakram Slinger
- Disciple of Deceit
- Hermit Druid
- Ley Weaver+Lore Weaver
- Poison-Tip Archer
- Satyr Enchanter
- Siona, Captain of the Pyleas
- Siren of the Silent Song
- Tatyova, Benthic Druid
- Mayhem Devil
- Jalira, Master Polymorphist
- Warden of the Eye
- Skyward Eye Prophets
When it comes to discord you can always create an account its free, they have it on mobile, mac, windows, or you can just use it in your browser and dont have to download it. I created a server for us so I can update you on the latest things im working and and I can post deck links as I finish them
One huge resource I found helpful is this post containing differend PDH combos:
It does not cover every combo available but its a start. Right now im in the process of cutting my decks down to 99 and writing up a quick into to the card choices and combo lines, I am still working on my first one and am nearly done, its for Auriok Salvagers
I have SO much information and work I have done on this unexplored format and would love to share it with you, discord is a super fluid way to do that as I rarely check my tapped out for messages.

Podkomorka one more question and I'll leave ya a lone for the night are the partner commanders used together or are they a individual units; like can they both be in the command zone? Ley Weaver and Lore Weaver
