Hi_diddly_ho_neighbor: Honestly, Surrakar Spellblade is astonishingly good in my testing, as long as I have at least one counterspell to protect it. The ability to connect isn't TOO hard when I mutate Vadrok onto him -- at least one opponent has no flying creatures most of the time -- and I frequently draw 4+ cards at once with Spellblade.

thijmnesoy: Thank you! Please let me know how your budget deck works, I'd love to take a look!

I always find your decks to be quite interesting, and this one is certainly intriguing.

You mentioned that you are looking to add Stifle. I personally think you could remove one of your weaker mutate finishers. My vote is for Surrakar Spellblade. The fact that it needs to connect is a substantial weakness, and it is redundant with Ghostly Pilferer and Sea-Dasher Octopus, both of which fit into your deck better.

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.

In the quick summary, I don't like Surrakar Spellblade. No innate evasion or protection, and casting the spells only lets it draw more spells, doesn't make bigger. Keeping with legends to mutate upon to there's Thada Adel, Acquisitor. Or the Pollywog Symbiote to give access to more looting and

Hey, saw your forum topic asking for help. If one of your first Commander decks well done.

Consider more cards that can help blue devotion, give you value when your creatures are unblockable or be upgrades for cards here? Budget cards ($4 or less each) to consider adding:

If you like some of these suggestions I offer more help to make cuts. Good luck with your deck.

Very cool deck, I like that there are no endless loops in. Maybe consider Temporal Adept over Time Elemental , Surrakar Spellblade over Lu Xun, Scholar General if you want to have the card draw. With Lazav my personal favorite mana ramp is Dowsing Dagger  Flip. Cavern Harpy is nice for protection. It's great to see how your deck works with that budget.

Althought I've build a more heavy budget deck, there are also ideas you might be interested: KILL AND RUN

I’ve been tinkering with my Tetsuko list recently - I added Mystical Tutor , Jeskai Elder , Scroll Thief , Consecrated Sphinx , Throne of the God-Pharaoh , and Deepfathom Skulker (cutting Crush of Tentacles , Nimble Obstructionist , Phyrexian Revoker , AEtherspouts , Surrakar Spellblade , and AEtherspouts ). Any other changes you’d suggest, or insight?

I guess that my quandry is that most of the 1/1s you have already have built-in evasion. These are the only ones that you have that don't (discounting Timestream Navigator because it's not there to attack).

  • Eternal of Harsh Truths
  • Master of Waves
  • Raven Guild Master
  • Salvage Drone
  • Scroll Thief
  • Shorecrasher Elemental

A quick gander at EDHREC shows some cards that are crazy when paired with Tetsuko.
