Dack Fayden Discussion
2 months ago
Nice looking deck :) I'm working on building a PO deck for vintage myself, I really enjoy Dack Fayden in this shell. Have you thought about Bolas's Citadel instead of Blightsteel Colossus as a Tinker target? In my opinion it synergizes better and is less susceptible to opposing Dack s and Sword s. Also, I can't see any reason to run Red Elemental Blast over Pyroblast , because in the off chance you ultimate Dack , you can target any permanent, even if it isn't blue.
Here is a link to my list:

This reminds me of my first draft of Vadrok! I built him as voltron at first -- I will say that Stormsurge Kraken is an amazing mutate host if you're going for that Voltron win. Malignus , too, but that's pretty obvious ;)
I'd highly recommend Frantic Search -- it's an amazing feeling to cast it off of Vadrok and regain most of your mana, and it goes great with High Tide and/or Underworld Breach. I really like Curfew over Run Away Together , since Run Away Together doesn't work in the infinite Dockside loops (because your opponents eventually run out of creatures). If you're going for the protective spells, Deflecting Swat is an all-star. I'm not a fan of Arcane Denial , you could swap one of these for it.
I'd also recommend Grinning Ignus over Rootha, just because you can pull off some silly loops with it. Doubly so with Mystic Reflection -- because Reflection copies the whole pile, you can use Reflection + Ignus + Vadrok to staple like 20 copies of Vadrok's ability onto the same creature haha.
Finally, careful with that infinite Dack Fayden line: your opponents will draw into all their deck's interaction. So unless you've cast Silence or Grand Abolisher beforehand, you can get blown out. When feasible, I prefer to infinitely recast Reality Shift to deck my opponents, with a similar loop :) Oh, and Hedron Crab and Brain Freeze are all-stars.
Hope this helps! :D It's great to see more Vadrok players running around...

Hey this deck looks awesome! Real quick, you may want to alter your description. You can't Cyclonic Rift your own Dack Fayden as described in step 7 of your last combo, or any other permanent you control for that matter. Trust me, I've tried many times :p

Went up against what I assume was a Time Vault / Manifold Key combo. I can’t recall my opening hand perfectly but my opponent lead with Underground Sea and Mox Jet into Ponder and Imperial Seal . I could have countered something but my general rule of thumb is to counter what is tutored rather than the tutor. Land, go. They mana rock into Timetwister which I assume is what they tutored as it would shuffle away anything else. I hit that with a Force of Negation and took the turn. Land, go. From there it was much slower. I got out Teferi, Time Raveler on turn 3 and Dovin, Hand of Control the following turn. Countered a Demonic Tutor and responded with Dack Fayden . Dack pulled us into a follow up Jace, the Mind Sculptor . At that point, they were low enough that we could ride Jace’s to deck management, maintaining our counters until Narset, Parter of Veils and Kasmina, Enigma Sage . We continued to keep our opponents top deck and our own managed, eventually completing the crew with Oko, Thief of Crowns coming down for an additional Fractal. Our opponent managed to pull a Tinker while we took the turn off but we had plenty of counters ready at that point and was able to stave off and go in the lethal offensive.

Hi NetholonTheArchmage !
One year has passed and I'm always in love with your deck.
I spended many time to change some cards of your deck. I find that Pendant of Prosperity , Tolaria West and Dack Fayden fit very well in the deck, as Humility or Land Tax , but you probably already know for those ones.
Arcane Lighthouse and/or Shadowspear are great cards to deal with shroud/hexproof/indestructible, depending your playgroup. It's same for graveyard hate, but I'm still looking for a good card cause I also play with my graveyard.
Trying to replace Robe of Mirrors (I don't like aura, they vanish with board wipes), I find Spiritual Asylum , wich seems perfect on the spot. But I don't feel confortable with the shroud effect it give. Sure, it protect your creatures and (most important) your lands, but it cancel the Zedruu's ability on lands, wich I'm used to give . Still keeping in mind Lightning Greaves , but it can't be tutored with Wild Research
Finally, thank you for your work. It really make me love Zedruu, and gived me the strength to start building a deck (I mean, ctrl c - ctrl v your deck). Best of luck to you, can't wait for next update

Well, when it gets going it's a lot of fun. Early on it's often fodder for Dack Fayden or Magmatic Channeler , which is also find because you can get it back with Underworld Breach . But if you're casting breach you likely don't need it.
The times you're out of gas it's great, and when you have a full hand the end step clause can be a liability depending on your draws and mana availability works out. That said having a mana dork or two with Song of Creation plus Jeskai Ascendancy is about the most fun you can have in MtG lol.

Thanks sSasquatch! Another practical advantage of theft as a gameplay strategy is that it scales quite a bit with the strength of your opponents' decks. Geth, Lord of the Vault and Olivia Voldaren are two more potential enablers for this strategy.
Hullbreacher is a windmill slam, I ordered one last week and will be slotting it in for sure. Hullbreacher is very powerful on its own but has additional synergy with Dack Fayden and Windfall, I may also test the new Wheel of Misfortune alongside it.
