Markov Blademaster

Creature — Vampire Warrior

Double strike

Whenever Markov Blademaster deals combat damage to a player, put a +1/+1 counter on it.

You could add the following to make this deck a bit faster, and they're all quite cheap:

Sol Talisman Rakdos Signet Fire Diamond Charcoal Diamond Prismatic Lens Worn Powerstone

cards to remove: Blackblade Reforged, The Eldest Reborn, Smoldering Egg, Volcanic Dragon, Ring of Xathrid, Rune of Mortality

aslo i'd swap Victim of Night for Grim Bounty

i think you want to consider Swiftfoot Boots replacing Ring of Valkas

you should also really consider taking out the dragons for: Blood Cultist Dagger Caster Blood Cultist Prodigal Pyromancer Morbid Opportunist Deathbringer Thoctar Fireslinger Cunning Sparkmage

when those get deathtouch, you can ice any creature that poses a threat to zagras

I would optimize the buffs you give zagras to +3 power so you can kill people in 3 attacks Grafted Wargear Heirloom Blade

double strike is actually way better since the deathtouch will kill the creature on first strike damage: Fireshrieker Lizard Blades Embercleave Assault Strobe Berserkers' Onslaught Blood Mist

Markov Blademaster Temur Battle Rage

Polaris on Double strike

Yes.

First strike and double strike both create an additional combat damage step. First strike creatures deal their damage in the first strike damage step, while double strike creatures deal combat damage both in the first strike and regular damage steps, so a creature with double strike and a "Whenever this creature deals combat damage to a player" triggered ability (such as Markov Blademaster) will trigger its ability both times of it was unblocked

Yeah, it's the same thing as Markov Blademaster.

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.

Pollywog Symbiote is definitely a thing I want to add, though. Thada Adel, Acquisitor isn't a bad idea either. Hrm. Too many lines, too little time.

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/
