Oloro, Ageless Ascetic has an ability that functions whilst in the command zone. As a newbie to the Commander format, that leaves me unclear about something:
Whilst a Commander is in their Command zone and remains there, what effect do they have on the game?
- Are all of a Commander's abilities active? (e.g. Gahiji, Honored One)
- Can they use their activated or mana abilities? (e.g. Sydri, Galvanic Genius)
- Can they do anything else (apart from being able to be cast)?
I suspect all their abilities are active and can be used, but I've been told only the ones that specifically mention being in the command zone (e.g. Oloro's ability) are active.
