How would you find the largest cell potential if assembled in an electrochemical cell?

You would want to use a cathode with the weakest reducing power (strongest oxidizing power) and an anode with the weakest oxidizing power (strongest reducing power).

And just to clarify above, you would want to choose the cathode with the highest E cell value and subtract the anode with the lowest E cell value
