The efficient land cards are what make this set more expensive, but the sturdy defender deck can afford to slow things down with cheaper mana alternatives. On the plus side, the guild-gates at our disposal look like we're building up more walls, and the scry from the various Temple of Mystery 's helps to put the combo pieces we need into our hands.

I'd cut Alela, as I'm pretty sure she has exactly nothing to do with your strategy, as well as the aforementioned Indulging Patrician. Baleful Strix as without bounce effects it just cantrips for little additional value, Pristine Talisman--three mana rocks aren't worth the tiny bit of life it'll give you. And maybe Blood Tribute as you don't have a staggeringly high amount of vampires. That last one is up for debate, though.

Glacial Fortress and Temple of Enlightenment are a nice budget replacements for Evolving Wilds depending on whether you want speed or scrying. Cancel is not a good replacement for Counterspell (there really isn't one if you think about it) because there are plenty of counters with the same converted mana cost that does more, i.e. Faerie Trickery//Dissipate, Disallow, Dissolve, Hinder (personal favorite), etc.. If you're looking for 2 mana counters I'd suggest Negate/Psychic Barrier (simple and to the point), Rune Snag (better with time), Remand, or Familiar's Ruse/Deprive. As far as a replacement for Shield Sphere goes, there are cheap defenders out there. While not at the same cost Wall of Omens and Wall of Denial does a fantastic job of keeping attackers at bay, you could also double up on Fog Bank with it's slightly bigger cousin Guard Gomazoa. Lightmine Field/Archangel of Tithes/Ghostly Prison also does a pretty good job of keeping attackers at bay. Hope this helps.

30 lands sounds good that’s 3 / guild. Do you mind if I take the Esper colors? I was thinking of both a midrange and a control build.

Temple of Triumph, Temple of Abandon, Temple of Silence, Temple of Enlightenment, Temple of Plenty, Temple of Malady, and Temple of Mystery appear in the "untapped source" section of a deck's colour pie chart, despite entering tapped. The other three scry duals are working correctly.

Hey, looks like you opened an Ikoria booster box and got some nice rares/mythics. I'm jealous of the alt art/foil Raugrin Triome :)
I'm confused about your deck. The entire deck is all Ikoria cards except 1x Temple of Enlightenment which is in Theros Return. The Temple tells me that you can play other Standard legal cards in the format you're playing. Can you play other Standard legal cards? There's other legal sets besides Ikoria in Standard.
Budget cards from Ikoria to consider adding:
- Pollywog Symbiote: reducing the mana cost of mutate and draw/discard a card is very good value with Vadrok for a two drop.
- Cathartic Reunion: discard cards for Vadrok and then draw cards.
- Sea-Dasher Octopus: flash makes this one of the better mutate creatures since can mutate at instant speed for two mana.
- Snapdax, Apex of the Hunt: can cast it for it's mutate cost without needing black mana and double strike is good with flying.
- Jubilant Skybonder: three drop 2/2 flying creature who makes it harder to kill Vadrok/mutated creature since it will have flying.
These are just cards from Ikoria. There's many budget cards that could be good with Vadrok in other Standard legal sets. Would you like me to suggest them?
