A Mishra who cooperates with what EDH is all about would be great. I've only read about the hoops you have to jump through to make him more than just for colors as a commander. I'd also appreciate a retooling of Griselbrand solely so that I can make a Liliana deck with all four demons, and a Dragonlord Kolaghan in the same vein as the Mishra retake. No Elder Dragon WotC ever prints should be useless in Commander. I don't know what they were thinking.

The unnamed Dragon that ruled the plane Yawgmoth stole to make Phyrexia, and Dyfed who took him there are on the list (especially if you've read the Thran novel). Taysir might be another candidate, if they shy from doing a WUBRG version (one or more combinations of the "One-made-of-Five" - especially if it's BG and RWU as their final battle before merging).

Jarsyl from the Brother's War could be cool (e.g. Gate to Phyrexia flavor text)

From Ice Age/Alliances, we never got to learn much about Jaeuhl Carthalion, Chaeska, Keeper of Tresserhorn, Gerda Äagesdotter, Archmage of the Unseen, Halvor Arenson, Kjeldoran Priest, or Disa the Restless; all of whom had some good flavor text.

Ditto for almost all of the attributed flavor text in The Dark (Lydia, Countess Brellis, Vervamon the Elder, Maeveen O'Donagh, etc.).

The three gods that became the Scarab, Scorpion, and Locust gods would be good.

And any of the Njne Titans who haven't got a card.

So many great suggestions in this thread!

I was so happy when we finally got Feather, and then Yawgmoth not long after. Of course, I'd still like to see a Yawgmoth as a God card. Remember, he never was a planeswalker, so a planeswalker card would not be appropriate.

I was thinking earlier today that a new Selenia might be good.

A Sisters of Flesh and Spirit might be fun.

New versions of the Planar Chaos wedge dragons would also be really cool, I think.
Abzan aligned, Timmy/Johnny with a Vorthos activated ability.

Commander decks: Karador. Riku. Savra. Vorosh. Teysa Karlov. Kenrith. Kaalia, Zenith Seeker.
Balthor the Defiled. Radha, Heir to Keld. Nath. Saheeli, the Gifted. Zurgo Helmsmasher.
Samut, Voice of Dissent. Grimgrin. Ertai, the Corrupted. Nicol Bolas, the Ravager. Elsha.
Glissa, the Traitor. Chainer, Nightmare Adept. Obosh. Nethroi.

Oathbreaker: Ral, Storm Conduit/Teleportal.

I thought of another one.

Myczil Savod Zunich,

Jarad's son, who is a pretty minor character, but he would probably make for a really cool card.
An elf on Ravnica who was trained in the ways of the Selesnya and the Golgari.

Oh I'd also like to add Hekara to character who haven't gotten a card (though I could see her being the Rakdos champion in Ravnica 4). She is a delight as a character and a good example of a "good" Rakdos character.

Oh yeah 100%.

However...An argument could even be made for him to be WGRB card.

Please no. Color needs to matter. 4 color was a mistake.

I will make a list of my desired characters:

Thanasis
Pavios

Choryu
Boss Uramon
Kobo
Kyodai
Riko
Lady Pearl-Ear
Sharp-Ear
Sisters of Flesh and Spirit (together)
Chiyo
Eitoku
All-Consuming Oni of Chaos
Aoyama, Keeper of Moths

Genku
Hiroku

Jenrik :(

The first two are from Theros, the others are from Kamigawa, and the last two are Tamiyo's family. And then there's Jenrik, who I'm not very enthusiastic about after SOI.

But his grandfather was a Wojek...and Myc was magically bonded to Rakdos himself for a bit. He's got some connections to Red. And if we had another four color legend, wouldn't you want it to be someone that made sense from a storyline perspective?

I would greatly prefer him to be Abzan, of course. I always want more wedge legendaries, Abzan in particular.
I'm just playing devil's advocate a bit.

The only other I can think of that I've heard about but never seen on a card is Tevesh Szat. I can't remember a lot about him from the lore, so not overly fussed.
Tevesh Szat is one of the old-school planeswalkers. He's depicted in cards like Planeswalker's Scorn, Malicious Advice, and Confound.

Similar to Lord Windgrace, I think Tevesh Szat will eventually see print; likely as a planeswalker commander as well.

Dead of Winter. Szat is a great character and I hope he and Leshrac can see a printing.

Agreed. Having dug a little deeper into the lore, Szat seems one of the better examples of a well described, dimensional character within the lore in that there’s a lot of relatability to his story arc and not just a ‘bad to the bone’ naughty dragon planeswalker with no moral compass.

Most of the potentials have already been named here. There's a small few I can think of I'd like to have cards that don't have them yet, and a handful of characters who I'd really like to see new, modern designs for:

-Davvol
-The Three Numena
-The Sengir family redux
-Skellum (Chainer, Dementia Master's mentor)

-Ixidor, Reality Sculptor redux (I really want a card for him that isn't so narrow)
-Ascendant Evincar redux (An actual card of Evincar Crovax by name that isn't such an outdated design/mana-to-power ratio)
-Commander Greven il-Vec redux
-Cabal Patriarch ("The First")
-Selenia, Dark Angel redux
-Radiant, Archangel redux (she could be an Uncommon nowadays)
-Barrin, Master Wizard redux
-Tetsuo Umezawa redux

I think the only one not mentioned that I want to see is Commodore Guff. I just love the art on Planeswalker's Mirth and Wild Research.

For the most part, they printed my old favourites (several incarnations of Jaya and Teferi, and that one version of Freyalise).

Edit: Sorry, more than anything, I want to see Leshrac and Tevesh Szat. Also, anything from Ulgrotha.

I have to be honest, the idea of a Guff card seems awful to me. A character that so thoroughly and obviously broke the 4th wall and was clearly just a plot device, I don’t know if that’s something I actually want to see. It would be a nod to some of the worst writing in MtG lore, and it got pretty bad at points.

That’s my opinion though. I’d much rather see Volrath again or Gix/Ashnod.

Hmmm, interesting. I had a Barrin, Master Wizard deck for a long time and I loved it. IDK how much I would change about him. Although maybe an Izzet version? Thinking about Barrin as depicted on Obliterate.
