What sefer (prob Mikraos Gedolos) has the most meforshim in it?

You can't just buy the one that has the most meforshim and expect to have everything, because the ones with less meforshim aren't necessarily a subset of the ones with more meforshim, for example the Zohar HaNigleh is only in Mikraot Gedolot HaBahir. – Chanoch Nov 15 '10 at 15:01
Please clarify: Do you mean specifically Torah commentary? Otherwise, I bet that some editions of Talmud or Shulchan Aruch would be in the running, too. – Isaac Moses Nov 15 '10 at 15:10
Why do you want to know this? – Double AA Mar 22 '15 at 1:39

I'm not sure if Torah Shleimah becuase it's more of an encyclopedia that doesn't separate the commentaries.

Otherwise, look at SeforimCenter's Mikraot Gedolot category and compare for yourself -- there are different sets with different focuses. For example, there's Mikraot Gedolot HaBahir which includes Zohar Nigleh, there's a mikraot gedolot of commentaries by the Abir Yaakov, there's a mikraot gedolot of Chassidic masters, etc.

Not a physical book, but the Bar Ilan Responsa program has dozens of commentaries.
