Lyzolda, the Blood Witch Discussion
1 month ago
So I apparently have an addiction to lol. I've got Anje Falkenrath and I'm building Kalain, Reclusive Painter . I've even got most of the off shoots of Rakdos with Ghen, Arcanum Weaver as my and Mairsil, the Pretender as my commanders. I've been thinking of what to build for and also thinking about other commanders like Lyzolda, the Blood Witch .
Are there any colors you like playing more than others? Or find merely by coincidence shows up in more of your decks than others?

I actually made an entire deck around this concept that works surprisingly well. Steve Argyle is a particularly great resource for this topic. In addition to Liliana of the Veil and Chosen of Markov Flip, he's also done Deadly Allure , Guul Draz Vampire , Naya Battlemage , and Night Revelers . Other notable artists are Jason Chan ( Deathpact Angel , Fires of Undeath , Kiora, Master of the Depths , Mayael the Anima , Maul Splicer , Treasured Find ) and Volkan Baga ( Elspeth, Knight-Errant , Korozda Gorgon , Stoic Angel , Student of Warfare ). I ended up going with vampires + knights and some other cards I included are Hero of Bladehold , Knight Exemplar , Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts , Elenda, the Dusk Rose , and possibly the most ridiculous piece of Magic art ever created: Soul Collector . Some cards that came close to making the cut are Angel of Despair , Bloodflow Connoisseur , Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief , Knight of Dusk , Magister of Worth , Avacyn, Angel of Hope , Vampire Hexmage , and Veteran Cavalier .
Other cards that I like (sorted by type) include Exava, Rakdos Blood Witch , Lyzolda, the Blood Witch , Kemba, Kha Regent , Sunspear Shikari , Elvish Champion , Gaea's Herald , Quirion Dryad , Nimbus Naiad , Dreamborn Muse , Mistral Singer , Shipwreck Singer , Siren of the Fanged Coast , Akroma, Angel of Wrath , Archangel of Strife , Basandra, Battle Seraph , Razia, Boros Archangel , and Ire Shaman . Looking at this list now, it's clear I've spent far too much time researching this subject.

That is how they are drawing the deck. Lyzolda, the Blood Witch doesn't do damage unless the creature was red.

I've always wanted to build a deck around Lyzolda, the Blood Witch , however she's a bit underpowered for my playgroup. Does anyone know of a game winning combo with her that I could build a deck around?

Hey! Cool deck! I wanted to now your thoughts on some other Random commanders, you say Kroxa is the only Rakdos commander that serves as an outlet, so what are your issues with these commanders?
Lyzolda, the Blood Witch, can serve as removal/card draw in a pinch.
Xantcha, Sleeper Agent, also double as card draw.
Of course, Kroxa has his own pros and cons as well, but I'd like to hear why you prefer him to these other options.

Note: re:Above list. Serra has no creature legendary so it may exclude her.
- Arcanis the Omnipotent
- Bosh, Iron Golem
- Dakkon Blackblade
- Haakon, Stromgald Scourge
- Higure, the Still Wind
- Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni
- Jaya Ballard (one creature, 2 walkers)
- Karona, False God
- Kresh the Bloodbraided
- Lyzolda, the Blood Witch
- Maralen of the Mornsong
- Mayael the Anima
- Momir Vig, Simic Visionary
- Phage the Untouchable
- Raksha Golden Cub
- Reaper King
- Rith, the Awakener
- Sakashima the Impostor
- Seshiro the Anointed
- Sisters of Stone Death
So now figure out which ones are most likely to fit into Tefiri's Past/Lore. Still say Sidar is most likely, But Jaya as another creature card could be possible I suppose.

Personally, I felt like he was doing the "right" thing for self-serving reasons, much like how he views the animals. I definitely can see a Boros Lukka. But, to me, he's still not a good guy. Like, he still wants to kill the cat for most of the time and is seeking both his city's protection, yes, but also personal glory. I think he's more
Lukka, Master of Men and Beasts
Legendary Planeswalker - Lukka
+1: Create a 1/1 white Human Soldier creature token with lifelink and a 1/1 red Human Warrior creature token with haste.
-1: Gain control of target non-Human creature until end of turn. Untap that creature. It gains haste until end of turn. If it dealt no combat damage to its owner, it's owner gains life equal to its power, then exile that creature, then return that card to the battlefield under your control.
-12: Each non-Human creature you don't control deals damage equal to its power to its controller. You gain life equal to damage dealt this way.
I think he should've had a threaten effect on him, but more as a recruiting idea. I designed the -1 to reflect a more recruiter effect, but also, just reflecting his view of these creatures as weapons, he can just use them and let them leave.
So, some Companions work particularly well with specific Commanders, e.g.:
- Samut, Voice of Dissent & Zirda, the Dawnwaker (Samut's Rebellion), (if not moreso for Kenrith, the Returned King)
- Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim & Lurrus of the Dream-Den (Ayli and her pet, Lurrus)
- Sapling of Colfenor & Umori, the Collector (Saplings are Creatures Too!), (as well as Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord, Izoni, Thousand-Eyed, and Kadena, Slinking Sorcerer)
- Vial Smasher the Fierce & Obosh, the Preypiercer (Judith, the Scourge Diva, Nekusar, the Mindrazer, Lyzolda, the Blood Witch, and Kelsien, the Plague also might work?)
- Jodah, Archmage Eternal or Niv-Mizzet Reborn & Jegantha, the Wellspring
- Arahbo, Roar of the World or Marath, Will of the Wild & Kaheera, the Orphanguard
- Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath or Rashmi, Eternities Crafter & Keruga, the Macrosage, maybe?
In that spirit, I'd like you to make a companion with a specific commander in mind. The Companion should be non-sentient and the Commander should be sentient, because I think being like a familiar/pet is cool as the dynamic and reflects the concept of bonders I think the design is to imply.
