In this game, the first poster will provide some non-legendary creatures from any point in magic. The next poster will then attempt to alter one or more of those cards into a legendary creature that could feasibly have an entire commander deck built around it while still keeping with the spirit of the card. This includes color additions or alterations, new abilities, or pretty much anything as long as the card is still mildly recognizable to the original. They will then provide some other creatures for the next person to commanderify.

The only rule is that the provided cards to be turned into a commander must have a rarity of Rare or lower, as to give the next person a little design space for upping the power level of the card to warrant legendary status.

I'll go first:
Loafing Giant
Dragonlair Spider
Psychosis Crawler
