Hey guys. My friend and I are new to EDH. I know this is probably a stupid question, but do a general's static abilities function from the command zone? It doesn't seem like they would but we've been told otherwise and I can't seem to find a definitive answer anywhere.

It depends on the ability - most abilities won't function in the Command Zone, others will.
Take Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir as an example: Flash functions wherever you can cast him from. The others (as a game rule) function only from the battlefield - and that's default. Static ability function only from the battlefield, except for those stating otherwise or those that cannot function from the battlefield (like Unearth, Flash,...).

too many, and always changing... except:

Rakdos, Lord of Riots (Demon Tribal)
Melek, Izzet Paragon (Dragonstorm) -> these must stay because of a house rule

For the love of Christ thank you! I spent hours on forums and could not get a single clear answer. Now to find a cool general that hasn't been done to death...
