Soulfire Grand Master. I always found found her a bit to vague as one of the 99 (or one of the 60 in highlander) however she would have made an absolutely dope Jeskai commander. So much combo potential.

Heartwood Storyteller. Mangara, the Diplomat does a similar thing for you and only you but I've been aching to make this bizarre sort of punishing politics deck, partway between group hug, group slug, and chaos!

It has a pretty unique set of abilities, incredible artwork and feels pretty legendary overall. Also, the combo with Thornbite Staff is a house.

I would personally love Azor's Elocutors as a commander. Azor’s comes down late enough, and takes a long enough time to go off that it likely would not be too problematic to have the win condition in the CZ.

There are the nephilims. They apparently were supposed to be legendary but weren't due to an oversight. (Though its been a while since I read that, if any one has a link to the designer saying that it would be great).
I like them since there are not many 4-color commanders (partners excluded) and they are fairly unique. I think it would be fun if WOTC reprinted similar/throwback versions that were legendary and put them in a non-standard set.

RiotRunner789 - they were never supposed to be Legendary, though Rosewater admits that, in retrospect, R&D dropped the ball and should have made them Legendary. It was not an oversight, merely a regrettable design choices.
“I admit if I had the nephilim to do over again I would probably make them legendary, but that doesn’t mean we will ever retroactively make that decision. The nephilim are as we made them for good or for bad. Changing things retroactively is a far greater negative than finally giving Commander four-color generals.”

Mycosynth Golem would be an absolutely devastating artifact commander.

Any reason for Bane Alley Broker other than the fact she's in a war bikini?
