Lyzolda, the Blood Witch Discussion

ShaharRyu on Help cutting down Lyzolda

2 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

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.

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?

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

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!

There aren't a lot of rakdos commanders that draw cards; so he is very cool in that sense. I believe the only other is Lyzolda, the Blood Witch which could even go in the 99

Black Sun's Zenith is your friend for sure. As is a TON of ramp since he costs 5 mana and his ability is another 3 mana. I feel you'd need a lot of control options to grind into the late game, and/or blast out of the gate with ramp

I've been wanting to build it but haven't yet. I ran Olivia Voldaren for a while and in the same fashion it needed a lot of mana to get going.

TheRedKnight on Edgar Markov - Blood on the Table [EDH]

Exiling is difficult to combat... especially in the form of mass removal since it doesn't target so things like hexproof and shroud are useless. The only thing that comes to mind is including ways to profit from it. You could sac your creatures in response to Merciless Eviction into Bontu the Glorified, Tymaret, the Murder King or Lyzolda, the Blood Witch to deal damage, draw cards and drain your opponent with Blood Artist. That way you profit from your creatures dying and they go to the grave instead of exile. With Second Sunrise you could profit even more since no-one but you had creatures put into their graveyards as everyones' stuff went into exile instead of the yard. But honestly this seems way too much effort to protect some few vampires from one spell (which may or may not be played during a game) when instead you can just draw and play more of them...
