Nothing from Unhinged or Unglued is allowed in EDH. In fact, if it's banned in Vintage, it's probably banned in EDH too.

How is this even a question?!?

Please do some kind of research before posting. Before you ask anything about a card you should at least look at it on gatherer or magiccard.info

1. Go to this website: http://magiccards.info/
2. Type in the card you want to know about and
3. Read what it says

It take all of a few seconds and not only saves you the time of making the thread here but also the time of us having to read it.

Yeah... No. He might be fun to house-rule as a general, but he'd be stupid at a format-level allowance. First off, if he was legalized we would either have to A: legalize all "un" cards or B: have an extensive list of which ones are legal. And you're talking to someone who's username and favorite card is an Unhinged card. I'd love nothing more than for Uktabi Kong to be legal. Unfortunately, the logistics problems of doing so are too much work to be worth it.

RaiRai, I don't mean to offend you, but...

You really need to sit down, read the Magic Comprehensive Rules, you need to sit down and read all the threads in this forum, read the philosophy document on the main MTG Commander page, and get a good understanding of what is and is not in the rules, and legality of cards.

Only then should you come in and make recommendations on banning, rules changes, and such.

There's a good reason the forums exist, and why things are the way they are.

Okay then sit down and read Miguel de Cervantes's Don Quixote.

I've been playing magic for almost a year and not to mention commander as long as standard. I've played against decks that are complete shenanigans, and some that are pretty fair, as well as some oddball ones. Trust me playing in vegas you see a wide diversity of cards, though when you start seeing the same thing over and over again, you get a little ticked.

While the suggestion that you read the entire forum is a bit silly, making at least an effort to research beforehand before making a thread is a good idea.

Don't forget the comprehensive rules. That thing is a bloody tome. Basic rules understanding and familiarization with the format philosophy document as well as format-specific rules is all we should expect anyone to have. Any more in-depth knowledge beyond that is a bonus in my book.

The CR is a large document and certainly a boring read, but if you have a question, it's usually not hard to pop it open and pop a few search terms into the "find" option in whatever program you're reading it with. Magic is a complex game, and people will inevitably have questions, but a lot of this one could clear up oneself, if the time was taken to look.

No player should read the comprehensive rules. It's a terrible idea. Kind of like playing against Richard Garfield, Ph.D.

Nobody who doesn't want to be a judge should read the Comp Rules. They are boring and very hard to read for your average person.

Suggesting some quick research is fully supported from this corner however.

The general or the actual person? I dunno, I'd like to sling some spells against him.

There are some things I've learned from other players that a quick search of the comprehensive rules would never have found, or that I would never think to question my assumptions on. I think it's neccessarily to at least skim the important bits. That said, I think perhaps the phrase "read the CR" gets bandied about a lot (and by me as well), but is imprecise. It's important to reference the CR. When there is a rules question it should be one's first port of call. When one starts a thread about rules changes, one should have read and understand the rules one is trying to change, and have considered the wider implications.

"Read the CR" is just a convenient shorthand.
