Damia, Sage of Stone
As a Commander candidate, you probably aren't looking at Damia's power and toughness - though I know that some people have, and suggest that deathtouch is redundant on a 4/4. I sort of disagree, especially in Commander, where there are creatures even bigger than that running around. Still, the main event for Damia is definitely her upkeep trigger. In any deck that can cast enough spells per turn, it's basically a repeatable "draw seven" effect like Wheel of Fortune or Timetwister, and any deck that's casting Damia is probably going to have enough mana to cast multiple spells each turn..
Constructed: 2/5
Casual: 4/5
Limited: 3/5
Multiplayer: 4/5
EDH/Commander: 4/5


Damia, Sage of Stone
One of those odd EDH commanders that seems like people would be running in a snap. Drawing up to 7 cards an upkeep is huge, Deathtouch is a nice addition too. The color identity allows for both ramp and control, so getting this out early shouldn't be a problem, as well as keeping it in play. All in all, it's pretty solid.
Constructed: 3
Casual: 3
Limited: 2.5
Multiplayer: 3
EDH: 4.5
