halestor91 Will the Wise is interesting. I've mostly glossed over the Stranger Things cards since their art and flavor are so strange when compared to most magic cards. When looking closer, he seems like a politics-focused card and doesn't have much power outside of that. In a 40 life game of EDH, it's safe to assume opponents who play optimally will never let you get more than one clue each trigger since 2-3 life total isn't much to pay. In that case, getting 2 (or 3 with Teysa) clues isn't super amazing. Our deck doesn't have any synergies with clues outside of cracking them to draw cards which is not a great rate for 2 mana per card. Additionally, since we don't have much to gain from a ton of clues, an opponent who does (such as an artifact-synergy deck) could take the clue with a lot more upside than us. However, if you like the political aspect of the card, really enjoy Stranger Things, or otherwise think it's cool, go ahead and include it.

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.
