I know that wizards just announced that planeswalkers past, present, and future are now legendary, are the rules going to change that planeswalkers can now be officially used as commanders?

but since wizards has already made playable planeswalker commanders why would it be any different with using any planeswalker as a commander now. I understand the reasoning with why enchantments and artifacts can not be used but planeswalkers are a whole another thing.

I don't foresee them changing the rule to allow PWs now, after all this time they could have, but declined to because it wasn't what was envisioned for the format. This rule really changes nothing at all, it doesn't make it more or less possible to 'legalize' planeswalkers as commanders.

Interested in RC thoughts on this though? Was it even considered again?

Right, the only change is this rule.
But i believe the decision against it prior was strictly about flavor, and this doesn't change that. But i'm wondering the same, if it was reconsidered; there could be no better timing than to change things today.

No, PWs will not be allowable as commanders unless a card specifically says that it can--so no change.

Quick dumb question for the rules committee: will the new Legendary Planeswalker rules be in effect for commander right after prerelease? Since all cards are legal in commander as of their respective sets' prerelease, it would seem kinda silly for the new rules to not apply until the official release of the set. So, can I get a quick and official "yes" to this?

EDIT: I just read the answer in another thread, so nvm.

Dumb question: Can I use proxy basic lands in my deck? Let's say the thickness of the cardboard is the same, can basic lands be proxied in commander? I read somewhere that as it's not a DCI sanctioned format you could proxy basic lands for normal tournaments, but i'm not sure if it's actually true...

My guess is they have custom art basics they want to use.

To answer the question, I doubt anyone would take issue with proxying a basic land as long as it did not result in the ability to cheat. HOWEVER, our league does not allow any proxies because it is a sanctioned event at our LGS.
