just curious as to why Karlov of the Ghost Council isn't on this list?
6 months ago
There are some great possibilities here I never considered and others that just remind me what is out there and need to get.
Archaeomancer's Map would be a game changer in these colors and top of my list to modify my own haha.
When initially learning to brew a deck I went for higher CMC cards but now I focus on 1-4 CMC especially when editing and taking out things that don't seem to be working. Other things on my list to use from here: Karlov of the Ghost Council Cleric Class Lone Rider Flip "don't mind this 2 drop haha" Voice of the Blessed Crested Sunmare (would be fun; probably also a target but omg if they leave it alone...) Paradise Plume (i think this would work especially well if there is a lot of overlap in the colors of your playgroup or playing 1v1)
Suggests: Bolas's Citadel (only because it's fun; it's also a huge target and the price of those cards can add up quickly) & Divinity of Pride (big hits, many lifegain) & Evil Twin or any other copy effect can be useful tactically taking out threats with it's ability but if they let you have Oloro out, you can copy it, sacrifice the real one and send it to the command zone and get double life-gain triggers. On that last note I have seen people instead of building towards pillowfort going for effects to abuse upkeep triggers ala: Paradox Haze with Golden Urn and Copy Enchantment and creatures like Deep-Sea Kraken and Indulgent Tormentor and Jhoira's Timebug and other supports like Clockspinning and can abuse it even more with Strionic Resonator or Mirrormade and similar effects. I like that idea because a lot of those pieces are useful just on their own but synergize quite well.
Good luck!! Thank you for the tag (:

I saw that you're trying to keep this on a budget, so absolutely ignore as much of this as necessary.
Elenda, the Dusk Rose, Suture Priest, Karlov of the Ghost Council, Phyrexian Tower, Altar of Dementia, Phyrexian Altar, Pawn of Ulamog, Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, Nether Traitor, Ravenous Chupacabra, Brought Back, Tragic Slip
There's really a lot you can do, so I will leave it here for now.
No matter what you decide to do, I highly recommend cutting Temple of the False God and replacing it with almost any other land, even just another basic. That card is a dead land for the first 4 turns of the game and I personally feel that it's more productive to have something more reliable.

Sadly your commander and deck need to fit for the companion to work, which is why currently only a few commanders work with Lurrus, that fit both Lurrus into the color identity and fit the commander into Lurrus's companion requirement, namely the following:
Killian, Ink Duelist, Karlov of the Ghost Council, Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim, and Will the Wise all work on their own, as well as the following partner variants in Miara, Thorn of the Glade with any of the following: Livio, Oathsworn Sentinel, Keleth, Sunmane Familiar, and Akiri, Line-Slinger, or the variation from the new Friends Forever when pairing specifically Will the Wise with Lucas, the Sharpshooter.

Sorry to burst your bubble, but their companion criteria exclude each other from being in the deck. If Mulato is the companion, Kulato isn't allowed in the deck and vice versa. Commanders themselves aren't excluded from the companion criteria, that's why Lurrus of the Dream-Den can only be a companion for Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim, Karlov of the Ghost Council or Killian, Ink Duelist.
So running one as a commander, or even just in the 99, means that the other is not allowed as a companion.

There are a bunch that I feel like would be fun, though possibly busted, together.
Also just in general my playgroup has been floating the idea that you can pair up two legends that don't have partner, BUT they have to actually be connected by lore. So pairings like Ixidor, Reality Sculptor and any of the Akromas. Ghoulcaller Gisa and Stitcher Geralf, Karlov of the Ghost Council with any version of Teysa. The legends might pull your decks into different directions, but could make for interesting deckbuilding as you try to make them work together.
