Lagomos, Hand of Hatred

Legendary Creature — Human Shaman

At the beginning of combat on your turn, create a 2/1 red Elemental creature token with trample and haste. Sacrifice it at the beginning of the next end step.

: Search your library for a card, put it into your hand, then shuffle. Activate this ability only if five or more creatures died this turn. (Dying is being put into the graveyard from the battlefield. Tokens enter the graveyard before they cease to exist)

Case42 on Hail Caesar, Emperor of the Mojave Wasteland

Lagomos, Hand of Hatred is a wonderful enabler for Caesar, as well as a tutor once you have enough creatures dying.

I would also personally try to include some more card draw. I've been tweaking and tuning my own version of Caesar, which focuses far more on the Aristocrats side, but the number one thing I've been trimming cards for is more card draw.

Deadly Dispute and Plumb the Forbidden are both great as you can just toss a token to them.

Dawn of a New Age is solid if you consistently maintain a large board state.

Final suggestion would be a Hall of Heliod's Generosity because of how impactful your enchantments can be.

Thanks for the suggestions! Definitely going to check out Lagomos, Hand of Hatred. Found one in collection. I’ll have to trout a few of those other cards,too.

My version of Caesar leans much much heavier into token production, but I still feel that you could use Lagomos, Hand of Hatred in this version. He is a great option for an every turn guaranteed sacrifice for Caesar, plus a tutor.

Since you seem to be aiming at a Go-Wide strategy, I would suggest cards that protect your creatures in combat.

Dolmen Gate Iroas, God of Victory and Reconnaissance

Reconnaissance in particular is very strong, as it not only acts as combat protection but also as a pseudo-Vigilance effect, as there is a stage in combat after damage is dealt where you are still in combat and can activate it.

My build is not as focused on tokens, but I think Lagomos, Hand of Hatred is an upgrade over a couple of your other producers, his tokens are more reliable to hit than some of the 1/1 tokens. Elturel Survivors similarly is probably better than your other myriad creatures. Genasi Enforcers also is a solid turn 2 play before Goro, you're much more likely to hit with those tokens on turn 3 than with the Banshee's on turn 6. I like your Reconnaissance mission, and in my experience having multiple of those effects is worth the slots especially for your token build where you have an engine often before goro-goro is cast. You won't regret any number of Gix, Yawgmoth Praetor, Grazilaxx, Illithid Scholar, Coastal Piracy, Bident of Thassa, or the new card The Indomitable. I think Decadent Dragon isn't a great fit, I noticed it on the recent edhrec suggestions for not much reason ;)

If there are decks in your meta that aren't good at blocking, then Rite of the Raging Storm is very scary. It is also a constant source of tokens that are never coming your way. Another Enchantment that can provide lots of bodies is Elemental Mastery, Mastery can make a small army of tokens that are both very good sac fodder and decent chump blockers if you're desperate.

I'm not sure if it's too awkward to make work, but Haakon, Stromgald Scourge is a decent recursion piece, allowing you to recast knights from the graveyard (including Haakon). All in all probably not as good as Gravecrawler, but better than many recursion options since there are many 1 mana Knights/Changelings. Another interesting recursion option that might work in here is Hell's Caretaker, this can turn a chump into the best creature in your graveyard on your upkeeps.

Any reason you're not running Pitiless Plunderer? It has pretty good synergy with your Commander, but also with stuff like Mayhem Devil (and maybe something like Marionette Master, which also works with any artifact creatures). Pawn of Ulamog and Sifter of Skulls both work with any recursive creatures to help generate mana. Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder is a really weird token generator that synergizes well with Gravecrawler or Haakon, providing you an extra body for each cast, helping them go infinite.

It's pretty janky, but Lagomos, Hand of Hatred is a neat repeatable tutor that also makes a token each turn. Another janky card that might do some work in here is Mask of Griselbrand, the buffs can be useful, but the card draw is the real perk, very good in a deck with lots of sacrifice outlets as a weirder Skullclamp. Dream Devourer is a surprisingly good jank 'ramp' source in Black, this also can protect your cards from discard effects by clearing your hand (and still letting you cast the stuff later).

I'm going to assume that you don't really want suggestions for anything to pricey, if this is wrong I can offer some different suggestions.

I could be wrong, but I've always felt like Lyzolda really likes low to the ground creatures that are both Red and Black, here are a few that seem worth a look. Rakdos Cackler and Footlight Fiend are 1 drops that are Red/Black. There is also Manaforge Cinder, which can help fix your mana. I second adding Anathemancer, it seems like a great fit here. Charforger might be interesting, it makes a token and has a possibly useful effect. I'm not sure if you often go through 5 creatures in a turn, if you can Lagomos, Hand of Hatred is a neat tutor that makes fodder each turn. Mahadi, Emporium Master seems really good in here. It might be too slow to matter, but Pyre Zombie is a recursive Black/Red creature. Shambling Remains can come back one time.

Tor Wauki the Younger seems like it has good synergy, offering a pinger that improves non-combat damage. Another big card that probably would do some work in here is Rite of the Raging Storm, this is a favorite card of mine for budget decks, anyone who can't reliably block the 5/1s will get massacred, and you get free fodder if the tokens aren't worth swinging with.

Hope something there works out for you, I had some ideas that I had to cut because of Obosh, but I think Obosh is probably worth the tradeoff.

Lot of my suggestions are leaning into tokens because Blood Avatar clearly wants that, and if i can find a spell that makes tokens than Extus will be happy too. Thats my idea.

Big Score, Unexpected Windfall, Blood for Bones, Rakdos Charm, Fiery Confluence, Crackle with Power, Storm King's Thunder, Bonus Round, Sram's Expertise, Electrodominance, Jaya Ballard, Liliana, Dreadhorde General, Elspeth, Sun's Champion, Assemble the Legion, Secure the Wastes, Call the Coppercoats, Fury Storm, Ashnod's Altar, Prosperous Partnership, Divine Visitation

Let's take a short break here, because you need better creatures. Creatures that have VALUE as you recast them over and over, maybe even discard outlets. I hate to say it (and i'm not going to list them) but Aristocrat creatures are ideal here because they are cheap, and gain life which can then be used to cast wild stuff like Bolas's Citadel.

Dragonmaster Outcast, Viscera Seer, Cathar Commando, Leonin Relic-Warder, Mondrak, Glory Dominus, Lagomos, Hand of Hatred, Pitiless Plunderer, Mahadi, Emporium Master, Woe Strider, Ophiomancer, Mayhem Devil, Children of Korlis, Insolent Neonate, Elenda, the Dusk Rose, Sengir Autocrat, Syr Konrad, the Grim, Sun Titan

Also if this just ins't the direction you wanna go thats ight

thefiresoflurve on Obekkin Up A Storm

Nice brew. Do you struggle with board presence? If so, Hate Mirage, Lagomos, Hand of Hatred, Mishra, Eminent One would all be decent additions. Mishra in particular looks like it might be really fun with all your artifacts.

As far as cuts: I think Thorn of Amethyst could probably be substituted by a stax piece that is more in your favor, like Aura Flux or Smoke.

Chrome Mox might be super inconsistent here since there are so many artifacts.

Hypersonic Dragon offers negative synergy with your commander and Ideas Unbound (since you can't end someone else's turn). Additionally, the dragon only even affects 6 cards.

Ruby Medallion should also be cut since it only even affects 5 other cards. Sapphire Medallion may be able to stay since it affects 15, but IMO that's kind of thin ice.
