defamagraphy1: how does Bala Ged Recovery  Flip, Lore Drakkis, or Cleansing Wildfire fit into a deck with no green or red?

I think Bala Ged Recovery  Flip or Lore Drakkis would fit rather nicely in here.

Also Escape Protocol and cycling could do some interesting stuff.

Then there's Cleansing Wildfire with Confounding Conundrum out. Destroy two lands, two lands come into play, they have to bounce one and their landfall triggers start reducing... How well it performs is the question

TypicalTimmy "Just use green for some land tutors and focus the rest into Mardu. She runs extremely fun like that."

ahhh but that wouldn't be very Mardu, would it? I think with Color Cropping, you have to be 100% in or don't do it. What's the point of restricting your colors if you're going to "cheat" with the best cards?

That said, I totally "cheat" with Hybrid mana, like Alesha, Who Smiles at Death in Boros Najeela and Lore Drakkis in Boros Vadrok. Nobody is perfect! But I consider those as being part of the Color Cropping.

Mj3913 yeah like I said, I came up with the idea on my own, but so had other people before and after me. It's a great idea no matter how you discover it, and I'm always amazed to see people's creativity!

I saw a Mono-White Yorion... but it was for standard or modern. In those formats, it doesn't seem like as big of a deal because decks aren't tied around the color identity of a legendary creature. In EDH, it feels like breaking the rules without actually cheating, which is the best feeling ever.

Legendary_Cardboard: Regarding Lore Drakkis, it DOES let you get an extra free-cast off of Vadrok, if you mutate Vadrok a second time! In addition to the instant/sorcery recursion from Drakkis :)

Exil3dbyrd - I don't think he's worth it, or at least not sure what I would swap him for. I'm trying to run as few dead cards as possible, but having a nice clean second combo to fall back on could be good!

Daedalus19876 - Lore Drakkis is interesting but requires more mana/Dockside triggers, since I don't get to cast the card for free like I do with Vadrok, Apex of Thunder. I will probably try it out as a failsafe though.

I'm happiest to steal Rhystic Study or Smothering Tithe with Steal Enchantment, but Legacy's Allure or even a turn one Mystic Remora would be fine as well. Overall it is possibly cutable, I just really like it!

Really appreciate the comments from you both!!

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.

I think you can lean further into the "Mutate" theme with Lore Drakkis, Cloudpiercer, and/or Dreamtail Heron to draw for more answers and to make Rielle and the Phoenic more effective. Hope this helps.

The Dockside Extortionist + Winds of Rebuke + Vadrok, Apex of Thunder line also works with Lore Drakkis, if you consider him playable to recur counterspells/wheels and generate a second potential mutation trigger. Snap is another piece of redundancy for this line.
