I'm an EDH noob, what's a hidden commander?


A hidden commander is when you place another creature (occasionally a non-legendary) within your deck & build the deck around them so people don't know what to expect when you first start to play.

A good example of this are what is called "5 Colour Nekusar".

Now, you can only play Grixis with Nekusar & the second you put him in the command zone your opponents know what you are going to do. With 5 Colour Nekusar, you play some random 5 colour commander like Cromat but you build the deck around Nekusar's pain-draw abilties.
