Leadership Vacuum hosed many of people with that card

Well if it's their commander that is the problem, there's Leadership Vacuum. As for non-targetting board wipes, there is also Settle the Wreckage and Winds of Abandon.

Okay so, as someone who built Mutate in EDH and is enjoying it immensely --

1) If your commander is mutated, and dies/gets exiled/etc, the commander card itself heads to command zone and the other cards mutated onto it go to the correct zone (graveyard, exile, etc). The exception is Leadership Vacuum, which WILL pull the rest of the pile into the command zone, leaving the non-commander cards stranded there forever. This also means that your commander will trigger "dies" abilities when it dies, even though the commander card returns to the command zone.

2) I'm going to have to half-agree with DrukenReaps here. I think Nethroi, Apex of Death and Illuna, Apex of Wishes are the most generally powerful. Brokkos, Apex of Forever and Vadrok, Apex of Thunder are both very good if built right, but are somewhat... odd. Casey4321's Brokkos Infect deck is a menace, and I'm VERY happy with how my own Endless Forms Most Beautiful: Vadrok EDH [PRIMER] deck is functioning so far! It's getting much less gimmicky and more focused as I test it more -- it'll never be truly cEDH, especially since I'm only using two of the three potential colors, but it can demolish most midpower and focussed EDH metas.

3) I definitely agree that you NEED to know the rules to play with mutate. It's a bizarre mechanic, which has a lot of odd interactions, and you won't get full value without exploiting the corner cases. But it also allows a lot of fascinating new combos, such as Dockside Extortionist + Lore Drakkis/Vadrok, Apex of Thunder + Snap to generate infinite mana! Or just Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker with Sea-Dasher Octopus ;)

Some quick Google research looks like Leadership Vacuum would put the entire pike into your Command Zone but you would only be able to recast your commander.

This is a discussion specifically about Mutate and Leadership Vacuum: https://www.reddit.com/r/EDH/comments/fw9w3a/how_does_leadership_vacuum_work_with_the_new/

I just looked it up and Leadership Vacuum does, in fact, put commanders directly into the command zone. I'm not sure what would happen then.

Ok, so this thread kinda blew up more than I expected, so forgive me for the monster text.

To avoid a massive wall of text, I will divide my responses in spoiler blocks to ease the view.
