Planeswalkers as Commanders

In the Commander 2014 pre-con decks you made it so certain Planeswalkers could be Commanders.

Will we see a time when all Planeswalkers could be a Commander?

The Commander 2014 planeswalkers were also specifically made with the intent that being a commander wouldn't break them. Of the currently existing non-commander planeswalkers, some are fine to lead a deck and others would make for a really miserable experience to play against.

Your best bet is to talk to your regular play group to see if the one you have in mind is one that they will allow.

I'll answer both of your questions:

1. No. We don't issue format-level errata, and it's not a change we're even remotely interested in making.

2. Yes. Although it wouldn't be catastrophic, it'd hurt the simplicity and elegance of the rules set.

I hope I haven't come across as too much of a Negative Nelly in this thread. I think that having a PW-lead deck is a great thing to have around as long as it is something that your group is cool with. It just isn't worth the extra bannings to make it the default rule of the format. As always, do what your group finds fun!

As a house rule, I'm sure it's fine. It's just the cost incurred as a global change that it's an issue. Local groups can manage additions to the rules/ban list as suits them, and make it as big or small as they feel that they like.
