Needle Specter is a terrifying mutate target. I strongly suggest you find one. Swiftfoot Boots is also a great card to add. Hexproof is extremely important when you're putting all your eggs in one basket, so to speak.

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.

Needle Specter is another good creature to copy

Needle Specter seems a good replacement for the under-performing Vampire Nighthawk.

This deck leans really heavily on three drops. The mutate mechanic needs some lower cost creatures to get started. I see you have Slippery Bogle and Paradise Druid as low drop creatures that are hard to remove. You may want to find a few more. Gladecover Scout and Silhana Ledgewalker are good hexproof creature to add. Mana dorks are also good to mutate onto as well. Llanowar Elves et al. are fine, Birds of Paradise is probably better. I would cut some of your three drops to add some of these.

Cold-Eyed Selkie seems like a great inclusion. Dreamstealer, Cephalid Constable, and Needle Specter play with the same area in different ways.

Predator Ooze seems strong in this archetype. Creepy Doll, Darksteel Myr, Sapling of Colfenor, and Stuffy Doll might also give you some good indestructible options.

The balance between hexproof and indestructible seems like a challenge, but you kinda get both from Thrun, the Last Troll and Troll Ascetic. A few other higher cmc hexproof creature you may find interesting Witchstalker and Aven Fleetwing.

Teferi's Time Twist and other effects that blink creatures can make your single large "Voltron" creature into a small army.

Swiftfoot Boots is also a nice inclusion, but stay away from Lightning Greaves

Needle Specter and Cephalid Constable have great effects to give a large creature. Swiftfoot Boots is great in a strategy that relies on keeping a creature around. Embodiment of Agonies gives more evasion, as well as some counters.
