Fake IDs: Legends with "Extra" Color Identity

Commander / EDH* Aggro Combo Control Elves Humans Midrange Primer Tempo Wizards


This is a list of Legends/Commanders whose casting cost does not match their color identity. In other words, these are Commanders for EDH that can be cast for LESS colors than their color identity. If it could be your general, and it can be cast for less colors than it has in its color ID, then it belongs on this list.

This list was inspired by a question from TypicalTimmy and a response from Gidgetimer. I'm surprised no one has made this list yet (or at least, I'm surprised I haven't FOUND someone who's made this list yet).

NOTE: Since I'm a completionist, I included Golos in the sideboard just to make you mad. ;P
