It has a year since the last ban list/ rules change, the last being the rebanning of silver bordered cards January 15th 2018.

Personally I think it would be interesting if the rumored color identity expansion was put into play as it would really mix up some of the staples aka Sword of Feast and Famine becoming a Green/Black card or maybe a really controversial change like banning all cards with the word "search".

A fundamental rules change would really spice things up in the biggest way since General Tazri officially became 5 colors.

What major format warping rule changes would you all like to see?

I don't know where you heard that but this is never going to happen. Among other things that means anything with "Protection from Black" - including creatures - can only go in a black deck.

Not ever happening.

No banlist changes is a good thing; you don't want to be shaking up the format "just because", you want to do it to fix an issue. I'm not convinced there are that many issues that require significant changes and/or bannings.

Rumors were generated from this fake screen shot ages ago, and I think deck construction could do with a lot more diversity

There was a time when the colour identity of your commander was only based on the mana symbols in the casting cost and nothing else. Aside from anything else it meant Bosh, Memnarch, and Thelon of Havenwood could not be used as Commanders.

Note however that General Tazri always had a five color identity, since those rules updates preceded Oath of the Gatewatch by years, so Tazri herself never "became" 5C.

If you really want to split hairs, there was no Color Identity until the Color ID rule was implemented.
