Sisters of Stone Death Discussion

Okay I hate to be that guy, but Meren should definitely not be the commander for a golgari commander deck. Massive flavor fail. You have every single Golgari guildmaster in recent memory to choose from- in order: Sisters of Stone Death , Savra, Queen of the Golgari , Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord , and even Vraska, Golgari Queen (it’d have to be Oathbreaker but whatevs).
You also have several prominent members of the Swarm to choose from; Varolz, the Scar-Striped (the Swarm’s chosen Maze Runner), Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest (a significant mover and shaker among the Swarm’s Kraul population), Izoni, Thousand-Eyed (Matka of the Devkarin), Storrev, Devkarin Lich (also a prevalent Devkarin, and a stronger and more interesting commander than Izoni, in my humble opinion).
Meren, by contrast, is from Jund. While she feels like she could be a member of the swarm, she is not- as she is busy not being on the same plane. This means you have seven commanders and an oathbreaker general (choose any one of her FIVE golgari-aligned printings) to choose from for a mote flavorfully appropriate pick.
In the end, though, it’s your choice. And I wouldn’t honestly blame you if you dropped some flavor for power here. In fact, I’m not sure what’s so “Golgari” about this particular brew. Normally the Swarm opts for an Aristocrat strategy... this just seems like two-color goodstuff (though some of the stuff may not be all that good?).

Sisters of Stone Death is a pretty fine card. Let's just say that these gorgons have no issues turning at least part of a man to stone.

Well here is every golgari commander:
For your first deck it is better to stay away from having too many colors. It just makes the deck more expensive and harder to put together, imo. That said if you want other colors then go for it.
Since you want the deathtouch/trample thing I would go for one that already has deathtouch or trample. So here are a few you might really like.
Glissa, the Traitor - generally an awesome stax deck with her being able to kill most anything. Lots of equipment give trample and if they get blown up she can put them beck into your hand.
Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons - doesn't have either ability her self but makes tons of deathtouch tokens. It is a fairly easy step from there to give them trample and pump them with any number of green spells. She is also a pretty staxy commander.
Gorm the Great // Virtus the Veiled - I haven't played this pair but I've seen them in a few games. Virtus is devastating... And no one wants to get hit with him so he almost needs to be given trample or other evasion even with Gorm being present.
Sisters of Stone Death - She is a bit different. Technically she doesn't have deathtouch. What she does is better! Add trample and she does her thing while smacking in for a lot of commander damage.
Finale note is power level of these commanders. None of them are considered competitive and Hapatra and Glissa are likely the only ones I listed that could sit comfortably at a high powered table consistently. And your strategy doesn't always work very well in commander. The attack step is usually just not strong enough... Still you should play what you want.

No, because rule 602.4a basically states you can't block for another player and when you attack with the Sisters of Stone Death you must choose one opponent as the target for the attack, which means creatures other two opponents control can't be assigned as blockers for your attacker (eg are unable to block it and Lure has no effect on them)
602.4a A defending player can block only with creatures he or she controls. Those creatures can block only creatures attacking that player; they can’t block creatures attacking other players.
Even if you were able to somehow force them to be assigned as blockers 602.4b simply says to ignore such blocks made from a player other than the defending player.
602.4b When determining whether a defending player’s blocks are legal, ignore any creatures attacking other players and any blocking creatures controlled by other players.

here's a scenario: i have the card Lure attached to Sisters of Stone Death and other than me there are three other players. i attack one opponent with the sisters, when they attack are the creatures from all the other opponents forced to block or only the creatures that the targeted opponent controls?

Would recommend you add more lands - 36-38 is the average number. Also, Drana, Liberator of Malakir doesn't do much in this deck, along with Skullbriar, the Walking Grave , and Sisters of Stone Death . Vigor Mortis is a pretty bad reanimation spell compared to stuff like Animate Dead . Also, Awakening Zone is usually a better From Beyond
