Here is my two cents
Cards NOT available as commanders
Emberstarter: Rikki explained why it was removed, so I'll pass on this one.
Overcharged Bot: He is fine, I don't see the point.
Hungry Abomination: No problem with him.
Hunted Dragon: No problem with him.
Flame Dawn Fanatic: I would not care that much if you remove him, but it seems like a pretty random choice.
Honestly, why not ban all factionless cards from command? I can't think of a single factionless card I would like as a commmander.
Cards NOT available in deck, but available as commanders
There is no problem with any of these 3 cards. This section is completely useless. I would just remove Radariah completely from draft. Aleta Traveler is a card I actually prefer in my deck than in my command.
Cards NOT available in draft at all
Azael: Why are we banning this again?
Etheral Fusion: This does not work 9 times out of 10, but when it works, it's the best feeling; does not deserve a ban.
There was a lot of other card I was not sure, but after reading Rikki post, I can understand what you guys are trying to do. I like situational pick, but you are right that too much of situational pick can clutter the pick phase, so I'm willing to try this new pool and see what come up with it.
There is a card I would add to this list: Endless Horde.
There is just no point ever. Since you guys started with an empty pool and decided to INCLUDE this card in it, either there is a good reason or it was late that night and you guys were tired because it's really just an useless card.
For the rarity change, I'm fine with all except the mechanism one. Move to uncommon, it will be fine like that.
