I would suggest Dream Trawler over Geist of Saint Traft as a win condition. Dream Trawler is even cheaper, it gains you life, it blocks better, and it draws you cards.

I really like this deck, but I think Geist of Saint Traft could also be a really good finsher.

Thank you for all of the great suggestions. I've decided to add a few of them to my deck. Already slotted in Geist of Saint Traft and Crystal Shard. Could use a couple of suggestions of cards to take out. Would prefer to keep the number of Mutate creatures at 10 at the very least.

Hey, interesting budget version of Vadrok.

Repeatable bounce effects for Vadrok are better than playing many subpar creatures with mutate just to be able to mutate. Crystal Shard and Portal of Sanctuary lets you repeatedly bounce Vadrok to mutate again, Shard can do it an instant speed. These permanents can be reanimated by Vadrok. Manifold Key can untap either of these artifacts or make mutated creature unblockable. Expensive price cards that do this are Cloudstone Curio and Equilibrium. Vadrok and Lore Drakkis are a great mutating pair when you can keep bouncing them. Instants that can bounce a creature can then become repeatable effects such as Snap and Capsize.

Creatures who have protection especially hexproof are good targets to mutate. Geist of Saint Traft is one of the best mutate targets and his attack ability can be powerful with flying Vadrok. Indestructible is another form of protection when mutating: Kefnet the Mindful, Adanto Vanguard and Darksteel Myr.

Mask of Memory can be repeatable draw and discard of a permanent or instant/sorcery to reanimate/recur. Mask is good with flying creatures. Can cast a 3 CMC Planeswalker with Vadrok. Narset, Parter of Veils is a powerful in multiplayer Commander. The Royal Scions can be repeatable draw/discard and pump.

Mirrormade is a very good budget copy effect in multiplayer Commander. Exotic Orchard, Shivan Reef, Prairie Stream, Sulfur Falls and Ash Barrens are budget lands to consider adding.

Good luck with your deck.

Yeah, I was thinking the same thing. I'm looking towards sneaking hexproof in somehow and getting card draw for more creature dumping. Probably Chart a Course and Geist of Saint Traft . I'll also most likely exchange Fiendslayer Paladin for an angel of somekind and mainboard Sleep . Odric and traft would be nice together.

The eldrazi theme sounds very nice. To add, I am also building a deck with Gisela and Bruna. I have found Geist of Saint Traft to fit very much in the theme as the commander.

Definitely run Thalia's Lancers if you're using one of the angels as your commander.

Geist of Saint Traft is arguably the best spirit ever printed. I'm not sure what its price point is at now or if it fits your budget but if you can fit it you should try it :)
