Markov Blademaster Discussion

Hi, I saw your post on /r/EDH. In regards to white & red mutate targets, a few I'd recommend are:
These are some of the more aggro hosts I used in my Vadrok deck. Also, if they're in your budget, Cephalid Constable & Needle Specter can both be pretty back breaking. I use them in my Brokkos deck to great effect.

I like the idea of adding OG Purphoros, I think that adding Vanquisher's Banner, Markov Blademaster, and/or Icon of Ancestry would be good. Adding some of the other Sorin planeswalkers would be a solid choice. I'm not super keen on Ashnod's Altar, attrition, vampire nocturnus, anointed procession, or mana echoes. You're running a three-color deck,and so colorless sources won't help as much as one might think. You aren't doing much with tokens, so procession isn't super good, and Vampire Nocturnus is a 4-drop with triple pips, so casting it is going to be tricky. attrition has a caveat, and so I'm not as big on it as other cards.

Hybrid mana cards were meant to be card that could be either color, and are not a color pie break if the card exists in only one of the two colors used to cast it. So to that end, I would say that hybrid mana should be allowed in EDH in decks that can cast them with only their basic lands.
To use your examples, Hearthfire Hobgoblin has its monocolor counterparts in Fabled Hero (which is the same card with an up-side) and Markov Blademaster (which is initially weaker but if it hits an opponent on its first attack will actually be stronger)
But for an even more perfect example of how hybrid mana is just one card that could have otherwise been two separate cards, I think Nature's Chant is the perfect example. Disenchant and Naturalize were already color shifted versions of the same card that showed that for 2 mana both green and white can destroy artifact and enchantments at instant speed. Nature's Chant is a card that is both cards smashed together into a hybrid version of the same effect.
There may be examples out there.... but for me at this point, I can't think of any example where a hybrid card breaks the color pie.

Brefin: I've been finding that there's two kinds of mutations -- the ones that help Vadrok, and the ones that Vadrok helps.
Surrakar Spellblade, Cephalid Constable, and Neheb, Dreadhorde Champion are all in the second category, because they benefit from Vadrok's inherent evasion to become threatening, despite their low power.
I'm happy to work with a smaller commander who draws me 3+ cards per turn -- in that case, I lean towards a combo victory, using the constant stream of card draw to throw out answers for opponents' threats. Plus, it keeps the deck from getting into the monotonous rut of "big commander, swing" -- the deck plays completely differently depending on whether the first host for Vadrok is Surrakar Spellblade or Markov Blademaster, for example.
sam171z: It's not BAD, but it's not amazing either. Basically, it gives you extremely strong protection against one player, but leaves Vadrok vulnerable to the other players and without a power boost.

haha I love it! You should also try Markov Blademaster. Quite a cutie and pretty useful. Found it in a jank voltron deck https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/she-who-rules-the-thunder-vadrok-edh/

First and most importantly, have you considered naming this deck "Dalakos's Artifact Stack Attack," because I think that would be wonderful.
Beyond that, though, have you considered the following:
Balefire Dragon (because it's fantastic), Captain Lannery Storm (because she's a warm body that ramps), Cephalid Constable (because it's a criminally underrated masterpiece), Daring Saboteur (because it loots and is evasive af), Fervent Champion (because it's an excellent voltron), Flameblast Dragon (because removal is nice), Grenzo, Havoc Raiser (because stealing spells is fun), Hellkite Tyrant (because 20 artifacts, with this deck? Sure, you'll need help, but that's what your opponents are for!), Hero of Oxid Ridge (in case you have any pesky token strats in your meta), Legion Loyalist (because why not just give your creatures all the keywords at that point), Markov Blademaster (because double strike is just really strong), Niv-Mizzet, Parun (in case storm exists in your meta), Prophetic Flamespeaker (because it's got double strike, trample, and card draw), Rapacious One (because INFINITE BLOCKERS), Scab-Clan Berserker (in case, once again, of Storm), Scourge of the Throne (because it's real good), Tandem Lookout (because drawing two cards per turn is nice), Tyrant's Familiar (because, once again, removal is wonderful to have), Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor (because it basically creates tokens for you), Windreader Sphinx (because it's a LOT of card draw), Basilisk Collar (because lifelink is super good), Batterskull (see prior), Champion's Helm (because hexproof is important), Embercleave (for obvious reasons), Golem-Skin Gauntlets (because more power is better), Heirloom Blade (because it's a steep stat boost and a death trigger, maybe), Loxodon Warhammer (because lifelink is basically super-vigilance anyway), Prowler's Helm (because evasion is nice), Rogue's Gloves (because card draw is good to have), Shadowspear (because it's nuts), The Sword Cycle (because you feel like droppin 16,000,000,000$), Sword of Vengeance (because holy keywords, Batman!)

Hi! Some ideas. Lands: Temple of Malice , Path of Ancestry . Artifacts: Rings of Brighthearth or Illusionist's Bracers ( Olivia Voldaren likes it for sure). Card advantage: Champion of Dusk , Twilight Prophet + Doom Whisperer (to get City Blessing is not a big problem in EDH and these two cards are great together). Creatures: Markov Blademaster , Falkenrath Marauders . Removal: Bedevil . Board wipe: Damnation .
