Buyback (You may pay an additional as you cast this spell. If you do, put this card into your hand as this resolves.)

Return target permanent to its owner's hand.

So I know capsize goes to the graveyard if its countered. So, I have Capsize in my hand, I target a targetable creature and the creature, either dies/exiles or gains one of the abilites listed on my question. I know it renders the creature an invalid target. Do I return Capsize to my hand?

Cut Teferi's Protection for Faith's Reward

Sunder = hard to argue with instant speed. I just stuck with "destroy all". Maybe board material.

Torpor Orb = perfect tax. Irrelevant to my strategy.

Teferi's Isle is MVP because this is the strategy it shines in. During Mirage era people paired it with Armageddon. I never get to use it so the fact that it flows with the strategy is just nice.

Capsize is the ultimate Draw/Go card. 6 mana bounce anything, anytime is useful and easy to pull off in a deck full of rocks.

Ohh yeah man, Crystal Shard is great here for sure. As many economically feasible ways to reset Chun-Li as possible is a must here, certainly. Unsummon, Vapor Snag, Fading Hope, Rescue, Curfew, Chain of Vapor, Alchemist's Retrieval, Unsubstantiate, Familiar's Ruse, Geistwave, Call to Heel, Snapback & of course Capsize (so much utility here) are all worth a thought here imo, seeing as how they are also instants that can easily be recurred via the Commander's ability.

Other less synergistic synergies like Vedalken Mastermind, Waterfront Bouncer, Trusted advisors, Shrieking Drake, Faerie Impostor, Seal of Removal, Turbulent Dreams, Aether Spellbomb, Otawara, Soaring City & Sanctum of Eternity could potentially help the deck push through to victory as well!

And then there's Intuition, which is obviously just insane lol.

Sceptre of Eternal Glory is nice, use it in two other decks. Throne of Eldraine pretty good too speaking of mana and draw.

Mind Stone I run in pretty much every other deck, great card and most likely getting added.

There's a few high cost cards I'm not getting enough out of such as Archetype of Imagination and Stormtide Leviathan for example that will most likely be removed. The aforementioned Shadowspear has been weak since hexproof has not really been an issue. Don't need both Bident of Thassa and Coastal Piracy so one could be replaced.

Added Capsize and Jace, Ingenious Mind-Mage a few days ago. I believe they'll be nice additions.

Come December I hope to be updating this thing and it already plays quite well right now. If you have any ideas for cards that might work well besides ramp please list them. I was looking at cards like Jin-Gitaxias, Progress Tyrant, but the mana cost seven is higher than I want (been working on reducing the mana cost of my decks). Things that steal or drastically slow down opponents are great.

Buyback seems like an easy value engine Capsize, Clockspinning, Forbid and Shattering Pulse.

Wuddup! Vadrik, Astral Archmage is so busted, man. Probably the best Commander p4p imo. I've been brewing him for a while now.

I see you're already running Seething Song, which is great. I'd highly recommend adding Desperate Ritual & Pyretic Ritual as well. Functionally having 2 copies of Dark Ritual in a deck is insane. Mana Geyser is pretty decent, but at Sorcery speed and at a minimum cost of , it's really not worth it compared to the others.

I would also recommend Mystic Retrieval & Mizzix's Mastery over Call to Mind & Finale of Promise respectively. As well as adding Past in Flames.

2 pieces of Equipment that I noticed shone very brightly with this Commander are Conqueror's Flail & Commander's Plate. The added bonus of cost reduction makes their power here difficult to overstate.

Buyback is a popular mechanic in typical Vadrik decks, but the only ones that are truly worth consideration are Capsize, Reiterate & Clockspinning. Haze of Rage & Seething Anger are obviously great, but they don't facilitate wins with the same frequency as those other ones. Sorcery speed sucks.

Never doubt that you need those Tutors, son! Solve the Equation, Reckless Handling, Merchant Scroll, Fabricate, Bribery & Acquire are all pretty much too good to pass up here. Reshape can also be great, depending on your Artifact list.

Free spells like Misdirection, Blazing Shoal & Commandeer can be pretty great here, given that they are likely still cheap to cast if you can't cast them for free.

Lastly, try to get yourself copies of Sea Gate Restoration  Flip, Shatterskull Smashing  Flip & Jeska's Will for this one if you can. Amazing!


Azoth2099 on Izzet Vadrik Fireball-slinger

Hey dude!

This Commander is so underrated, a strong contender for the best in Izzet imo, good choice.

Having built and playtested the crap out of this one already, I'd recommend running Firemind's Foresight! Even if you're not using it as a 1-card wincon - which I recommend - it's still great value. Recursion spells Past in Flames, Mystic Retrieval, Mizzix's Mastery & Finale of Promise also pull a lot of weight. Buyback cards like Capsize & Reiterate are very strong here as well. Other Buyback cards that normally see no play like Spell Burst, Clockspinning & Seething Anger suddenly become pretty decent!

Equipment like Conqueror's Flail & Commander's Plate are also even better than they usually are with this Commander. Clout of the Dominus too!

Baral, Chief of Compliance could reasonably join the party as well imo!
