Post subject:  Controlling other players

So, I started playing a blue-black mill/control deck and I have a question a friend and I recently ran into: if I take control of a player for their turn (say with a card like the new Emrakul) and I exile their commander, can I chose to put their commander in exile? Also will it stay there? Is that still the players choice? Is this also applicable to hand, deck and graveyard? Thanks!

The interesting thing here is that the Commander rules say owner:
"If a Commander would be put into a library, hand, graveyard or exile from anywhere, its owner may choose to move it to the command zone instead."

If you control a player you don't suddenly become the owner of their cards. This phrasing may have been chosen to prevent the feel bad situation when you completely lose access to your general as s/he gets exiled.

The owner doesn't change, the one who makes the choice does.

I agree, I think that is what the rule is saying (the controlling player makes those choices). That said, I think the rule would be better if it didn't say that, and that the decision where to place your Commander would be put into the same category of "choices" as whether you concede or not, which is a choice that the controlling player does not get to make.
