Help cutting down Lyzolda

Commander Deck Help forum

Posted on Nov. 7, 2018, 11:54 p.m. by ShaharRyu

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

Unstable Obelisk doesn't seem particularly good Bloodghast is a fantastic card, but seems a bit expensive (if you're ok with it then its fine in the deck) Kathari Bomber doesn't seem to be stellar, good in the early game but probably not great in the long run Fleshbag Marauder for Plaguecrafter simply a better card Pitiless Plunderer good for ramp but the tokens don't work well for the theme, they are sac-able creatures and they're colorless. the same goes for the Eldrazi token makers if you can find a card that makes tokens that are red or black it'd help

I run the Obelisk to have sth that deals with Enchantments. Scour from Existence was my other option and Chaos Warp the last resort.

Bloodghast is the gift from a friend so it is cool. Kathari Bomber has given me some doubts and thr goblin player in my group seems a but biased insisting in me playing it so I appreciate the opinion.

Fleshbag Marauder was my choice because if I sac it with no other creatures on board I have no penalty, but it might be too conditional and will think of replacing it instead.

Finally, Pitiless Plunderer is indeed good for ramp and along Pawn of Ulamog, Sifter of Skulls or Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder can give me huge amounts of mana or even an infinite loop with Reassembling Skeleton. Ogre Slumlord gives me the black tokens but there aren't many red token generators in the Aristocrats department. Goblin Assault or Krenko perhaps

I understand now why your having trouble cutting cards, was just giving my suggestions.

I do understand and I do appreciate them. Please do not misunderstand me. I was using the bus so wasnt able to write as I would like it. Kathari Bomber is going out and am swapping the Fleshbag for Plaguecrafter. I will change the obelisk although am not sure what to place in change to deal with enchantments.

Pitiless Plunderer is a card which has given me nice results and I find it worth keeping. Regarding the colored tokens I am not sure which cards might come in handy
