Nearly a year ago I attended a Star City Open for the purpose of playing side events. I played one Commander pod in which multiple people wanted to play the same general. This lead to a ruling by the staff judges that the “Legend” rule did not apply, period. However, I was playing Sharuum, the Hegemon, and I NEED the Legend rule in order even have a chance at winning the game. The judges conferred and came back with a rule stating that the Legend rule would only apply individually to each player, and wouldn’t matter across battlefields. Now Wizards has made nearly the same rules change.
