I've been playing with "Tag Team " Commanders for a few years as a way to get 4-color decks (and prior to Khans, as a way to have more options for the Wedge colors). The idea came up when I was building my first round off "Every Color Combination Possible" Decks, and I needed a way to make a 4 color deck.

We played that you could only have one of them in play at a time, and that you could "Tag In" once on your turn (variously at beginning of upkeep or beginning of main phase). Tag-ins didn't up the Commander Tax, but did include it in the cost.

I built 5 decks, and mostly play them against each other, loaning them out to people. I did use Sisay in my non-Red deck. http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/tag-team-wubg-zur-sisay/


It first kind of came up on the 2nd CommanderCast Call Inferno, which I was on, as was Christian from Off-Color Cast. Around minute 48.

The guys at Off-Color Cast also played around with the Tag Team Commander idea a lot, and go over it in detail on two of their episodes.
Episode 6 http://offcolorcast.blogspot.com/2012/02/off-color-episode-6-dreads-we-sluggin.html
Episode 20: http://offcolorcast.blogspot.com/2012/07/off-color-cast-is-commander-based.html
And an Article that lays out their version of the Tag-Team rules (mine varied only very slightly). http://offcolorcast.blogspot.com/2012/09/general-issue-1-in-which-i-create-and.html


A few of my other decks
Zedruu/Syyg (non-G) Alt Win http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/tag-team-wubr-zedruu-sygg/
Jenara/Razia (non-B) Angel Tribal http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/tag-team-jenarazia-wurg-angels/
Kresh/Hazezon (non-U) Tokens
Thraximundar/Skullbriar (non-W) Zombies
Gwafa Hazid/Norin the Wary (RWU) Human Tribal/America

It appears Wizards is on the verge of official support for duel Commander. I'm wondering if the RC will be working with Wizards on a separate ban list for this format. They seem set on starting at 30 life, not 20, so this signals that the French ban-list may or may not be on the table. Thoughts?

Pretty sure they wouldn't have designed Saskia the Unyielding in the way they did if they wanted to support that kind of format- adding damage doubling to hatebears in 2-player formats isn't exactly a sound way to promote a healthy format.
