Are there any Commanders you'd love to partner together, if you could?

Not the "Partner" mechanic, but the "Partners With" that we saw in Battlebond and again in Ikoria.
I was constructing a deck and found a beautiful synergy between Wulfgar of Icewind Dale and Lovisa Coldeyes. While Lovisa may not have an attack trigger off Wulfgar, Wulfgar does get her +2/+2 anthem. With an attack at each opponent, he would become a 9/9 which is absolutely brutal, especially being a Commander.
...WAIT DOES MELEE TRIGGER TWICE?? IS HE A 12/12??!
It's not the biggest synergy, nor the best, but I have wanted to run Coldeyes in a deck for years now and, happily, I finally can :)
That's why I'm asking :3
I would love to have odric lunarch martial and akroma Vision of ixidor together, that would dominate.

I'll have to upload my odric deck, I used to have zetalpa in there but I took him out when I decided to go angel/human tribal. My akroma's both becamey new game winners

Nin, the Pain Artist and Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder would probably make my Torture! deck perfectly flavored. The mechanics would work okay together... but the FLAVOR chefs_kiss.gif Circu, Dimir Lobotomist is a close second... but I really dig Endrek’s mechanic.

I feel this is a good time to plug my new Commander Variant, and offer some of my favs from that:
Some of my favorite unlikely alliances include:

Peoyogon: You, I like you! Up to this point, you've won this threadd.

seshiro_of_the_orochi My unlikely alliance of choice with Moraug would definitely be Mina and Denn, Wildborn- Mina and Denn basically guarantee you'll get at least two landfall triggers every turn, and give your stuff evasion, imagine this bizarre voltron/landfall strat.

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.
