-2 Lyzolda, the Blood Witch +1 Faithless Looting +1 Ion Storm

I dropped Lyzolda Blood Witch because quite frankly... I don't think it worked well enough in my deck. Brought it up to 3 Ion Storm because with a playset of Faithless Looting If i draw too many I can use them as discard fodder. As I can with Gravecrawler . Please let me know if there is a better approach.

Kaneki___Ken on So I'm making Aristocrats W/o ...

2 months ago

So I want to make an Aristocrats deck without the color white, as I have most of my white staples in another deck. Currently I'm having trouble picking a color combo, and commander. Here are my thoughts so far:


Possible Commanders: Judith, the Scourge Diva , Tymaret, the Murder King , Lyzolda, the Blood Witch

So rakdos I think needs to be in the deck at least. Red has a lot of good effects for aristocrats in cards such Impact Tremors for extra reach and sac outlets in Goblin Bombbardment. I've been messing around mainly with Judith, but she seems to fall short in the later game, which while making sense, still disappoints me. The other two I mentioned look to be maybe even weaker, but I'm open to have my opinion changed.


Possible Commanders: EXCLUDING PROSSH* Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper , Shattergang Brothers , Kresh the Bloodbraided Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire

Jund gives more token generation for aristocrats in green, AND adds good ramp. Not to mention, a larger selection of commanders. Only problem is, I want to make this deck somewhat strong, say, high power on the commander tier list on this site, and that might require more of a mana base than rakdos, but maybe I'm wrong with green providing fixing for my colors.

*Not doing Prossh, he's over saturated at my meta, or was for a time.

Thoughts? Any other color combos to consider?

P.S I've also tried Marchesa the Black Rose, to limited success.

ShaharRyu on Help cutting down Lyzolda

5 months ago

I am currently building an Aristocrats deck around Lyzolda, the Blood Witch. I am using some of the cards I got lying around like Skirsdag High Priest, Viscera Seer, Shadows of the Past, Vampiric Rites and some others. Currently this deck has 104 cards and I need to cut some down. I am not looking up for upgrades, but more of recomendations on which cards should stay and which should go. That said, any <3$ upgrades are welcomed and will be considered if a replacement is given. Keep in mind it is a budget deck being optimized. Thanks

DrukenReaps on Looking for a token commander

6 months ago

So I miss having a token deck and I'm currently looking at the following to head such a deck: Ramos, Dragon Engine, Saskia the Unyielding, Lyzolda, the Blood Witch, Savra, Queen of the Golgari, or Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim

Looking to make something casual like my other decks and if you recommend another commander it must at least be .

I'm just kinda stuck on what I want to do with the deck right now... So maybe show off your own cool token decks please? Preferably something that might be a little less expected.

Hello! So you want to convert your creatures into Vampires utilising your commander's ability, right? In this case you should look at creatures like Lyzolda, the Blood Witch, Exava, Rakdos Blood Witch, Blood Cultist etc. And you need Stromkirk Captain of course. Take a look at my deck Nobles of Innistrad (B/R Vampires). Maybe you'll find something interesting there.

Scytec on Ideas for a commander

Vela the Night-Clad is good, I absolutely adore Meren of Clan Nel Toth, and she isn't absolutely necessary, though she is super powerful. Lyzolda, the Blood Witch, Rakdos, Lord of Riots, Ezuri, Claw of Progress, Mayael the Anima is slap full of ramp allowing you to hardcast as well, I'll throw in another vote for Edgar Markov because he is just SICK, last one I'll throw out is Karametra, God of Harvests...just look up her Enchantress list. It's excellent.

Scytec on Douchey Deck Help?

9 months ago

I'm building Lyzolda, the Blood Witch. Instead of playing to win though, I want to play to make my opponents lose. Utilizing cards such as Havoc Festival and Descent into Madness. Please recommend crazy artifacts and chaos cards in Rakdos please. They don't have to be good...they just have to be fun...pretty much exclusively for me. ;p

NayrSlayer on mm that's a spicy meat-a-ball-ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh

A nice attempt at building a Rakdos colored deck, but unfortunately Rakdos does not fit as the commander. Usually Rakdos, Lord of Riots is about dealing decent amounts of damage through instants and sorceries in order to drop giant colorless creatures (usually Eldrazis) for cheap or free. If you want to go that route, Most of the deck would have to be scrapped in order to pursue that strategy.

However, since I imagine this is more of a deck that you put together with cards you had lying around, it might be better to simply change the commander to someone that fits the deck a bit better. From what I can see, the cards that you have seem to be centered around a lot of small guys that either rush down your opponent or sit back and lob damage with abilities. Since your opponents will probably be able to kill off a decent amount of these little guys, you might want to consider Tymaret, the Murder King or Lyzolda, the Blood Witch so that you can get sac them before they die otherwise to get more value.

With this change, you could definitely put Rakdos, Lord of Riots in the deck so that you still have that massive 6/6 in your deck and I would also recommend Malfegor for another big guy with a psuedo board clear. Then, I would recommend putting in a lot of cards that come back like Reassembling Skeleton, Bloodsoaked Champion, and Tenacious Dead as well as any cards you can find with Undying or Persist.

There are a lot more potential cards that could make the deck better that I can't type them all out, but I would recommend looking at EDHREC's website for the commander you chose for some inspiration. I hope this helps and I wish you the best of luck!
