Zedruu the Greathearted
Zedruu is an interesting card, because there is basically almost no application for her in traditional one-versus-one Magic. Generally, if you have only one opponent and they control a number of permanents you own, you're on the fast track to defeat. But in Commander settings with four or so players, there's inevitably going to be a lot going on that doesn't directly involve you, and lots more time for you to set up some kind of situation with expendable tokens or other things you don't mind giving away for a long-term advantage. In general, I like when cards are useful in as many situations or formats as possible, but interesting designs like this probably couldn't exist without the dedicated Commander supplements.
Constructed: 1/5
Casual: 3/5
Limited: 1/5
Multiplayer: 4/5
EDH/Commander: 4/5

I'm surprised we've never reviewed this. Niche commander with a bit of danger attached. giving your opponents control over pacifism-like enchantments the obvious smart play with a card like this. drawing is pretty important in EDH, so it's a nice little pick for a color scheme that allows for aggressive play. 
Constructed: 2.5
Casual: 4
