Choose a counter on target permanent or suspended card. Remove that counter from that permanent or card or put another of those counters on it.

Hey man, here's some synergies!
I'll stop here and let you decide if you want more recommendations before I get out of hand lol.

Oh and sorry if I'm being annoying but what's your plan with clones like Sakashima? Multiple sources of rebound are redundant, so IMO copying your commander isn't that impactful.

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.
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.

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

Yo Krugz! Thanks for your nice words, I appreciated.
About Paradox Haze I can tell you it works very well in this kind of deck, matter of facts I used to run it time ago, but it needs a turn before it can do something and if you draw it in late game it could be a dead card. In the end I cutted it for Clockspinning cause I prefer istant-speed time-counter removal. However, actually I am considering Sphinx of the Second Sun, similar but stronger, as an Ultimate to be played with Jhoira ability

To remove any issues with your suspend cards being countered I would suggest running some counterspells. Preferably Spell Pierce, Miscast, Swan Song, Dispel. Since you don't have a way how to defend yourself I would play 8 of them at least in any combination. Perhaps Unsummon might be a good addition either at some point.
Cryptic Command is a great multipurpose thing.
