According to http://magic.wizards.com/en/articles/archive/feature/ixalan-mechanics planeswalkers will now be covered under the legend rules and the planeswalker uniqueness rules are going away. So planeswalkers turning into commanders in the next set? I figured the commander rules won't change any time soon to cover planeswalkers due to very busy and hard working RC staff.

As I mentioned in another thread, Planeswalkers will not become legal generals for the same reason , , and are not currently legal generals.

Funnily enough I asserted awhile ago that superfriends weren't really that much of a problem. Well thanks wotc for completely turning that statement on it's head. post-Ixalan EDH is going to be a planeswalker filled nightmare...

Uh.... clearly I'm missing something. Why does being able to tap a planeswalker for one <> mana now make a grand difference?

Historically the things I hated about my playgroup's planeswalker deck(s) was the into into , etc that doesn't care about planeswalker volume. I think this change makes the worse planeswalker more playable as they don't become dead cards in a PW or value deck when their better name-sharers are in play.

My bigger question is when do these changes become official/official in commander? I know my playgroup will be on the legendary planeswalker train asap (we picked up the vancouver mulligan the week it was described by wizards). If I roll up to FNM with my new mediocre-friends deck pre-Ixalan am I in for a world of disappointment?

We've always operated under the idea that cards are legal and rules changes are in effect on the day the cards become available--so once you hit a pre-release next month, jam your deck full of dinosaurs and legend rule those Jaces.
