I'm so far away from even suggesting synonyms that I'm going to buck convention and start here...

Can someone please make and synonyms of ?

Commander is the modern name and was probably adopted to avoid copyright issues with the Highlander movies (since both are focused on the tag "There can only be one")

https://boardgames.stackexchange.com/tags/synonyms for those with enough rep to create/vote on tag synonyms.

At this point it looks like we're only talking about a few questions, so I'm not sure that a global synonym is required. Can this be handled by just retagging the affected questions?

  • Don't have enough rep or I'd have already been there :-) We are looking at a few questions but I think both terms are so ubiquitous that retagging means committing to a lifetime of retagging. Additionally most Magic the Gathering questions generally only carry 1 tag ... the MTG tag. As the topic expands I'm certain we'll see more use.

    While we're at it, just for brevity and convenience perhaps an [mtg] tag could be created as a nice synonym for [magic-the-gathering]? Oct 24, 2011 at 18:22

I'm moving the to .

We should avoid using generic terms as tags when we only want to represent a subset of a particular game.
