Captain Sisay
 
Captain Sisay is a legend among legends. I know that she is far from the most efficient creature in terms of stats or abilities. I know that she is far from the most innovative or shocking legend around, especially now that we have the annual supplements with nothing but new combinations and often new cards. But she is the center of a dangerous Commander deck and an amazing transitional enabler in decks where she isn't the general; and besides, I remember the feeling like I was practically by her side during the Phyrexian Invasion, where she not only forged the Weatherlight's finest crew but never broke in the face of the worst Yawgmoth threw at the multiverse. To me, she is still the face of Magic's legendary creatures and she always will be.

EDH/Commander: 5/5
James H. Captain Sisay (6/22)
 
Legendary creature that tutors other legendary permanents…sounds well-suited for Commander, if nothing else. Sisay is squishy, and she doesn't do a lot besides tutor, but she's a very powerful tutor, and she can help you get your entire set-up out much faster. (She also gets legendary lands and enchantments.) Definitely powerful in the right build, but too slow in more “serious" formats, between costing four mana and needing time to get more cards out.
