Vadrok, Apex of Thunder Discussion

InnocentAu You need to have one of the draw effects in play or a second Vadrok, Apex of Thunder in your mutate pile which then allows you to cast See the Truth from the graveyard, this combo is non-deterministic and can "fizzle" but you should draw into plenty of mutate cards as each one can be paid for with mana from a single Open the Omenpaths

Three combos you might want to consider:

First, Insatiable Hemophage + Zagoth Mamba ;

Second, Glimmerbell + Sea-Dasher Octopus ;

Third, Vadrok, Apex of Thunder (or any mutate creature) with Double Major ;

The creatures Cloudpiercer + Dreamtail Heron seem a bit pricy and slow especially with so many Lands that come into play tapped it when spells like Shredded Sails and Frantic Inventory are more efficient.

Lastly, the your deck being four colors seems to step on it's own feet while it's trying to run. What I've found best that works for me "personally" is going strong on three colors that compliment and support each other. Or better/stronger yet is focusing on two colors with adding in just a little bit of a third color to compliment your main colors.

Exceptions to this are when you cards that help and support five colors like Omnath, Locus of Creation or Jegantha, the Wellspring . Or you just sliver in two colors that support your two main colors.

For instance playing Brokkos, Apex of Forever + Zagoth Triome with Indatha Triome + Nethroi, Apex of Death in the same deck. Two core colors in B/G with a slive of W and U.

I wanted to build a Vadrok, Apex of Thunder deck, but I don't understand how he's in the Competitive Tier because I can't find a good list online. Can someone explain to me how this deck wins competitivly?

Yeah, my OP was sort of cryptic

King_marchesa if you do not want a deck that plays the same way every time, may I recommend a mutate commander? I personally built a Vadrok, Apex of Thunder deck that is intended to play differently each time. If you want a fun combat-based deck you could run Ilharg, the Raze-Boar for some interesting plays (and it can help avoid commander tax if you let it return to your library instead of the command zone).

I've seen Winota, Joiner of Forces play and it is fast, fun, and variable as well.

I LOVE Izzet, so it's good to see a standard list. I think Vadrok, Apex of Thunder although only with the mutate would be great in this deck. Just like Dreadhorde Arcanist, this can get almost any instant or sorcery from your graveyard.

Hello together, I still struggle a little with the mutate mechanic and hope to find some answers.

I understood, that if for example Vadrok, Apex of Thunder is mutated onto another creature and this creature moves zones, they split, but end up in the same zone. So if i cast Release to the Wind, they will get exiled (if i refuse to send Vadrok to the command zone or something like that) and can be cast separately after that. Having cast the first creature from exile, can i mutate Vadrok onto it or do the two alternative costs (without paying & mutate) interfere? Can i choose to pay for mutate in this case, ignoring the "free cast" from Release to the Wind? Or am i forced to play him as a creature instead of mutating to avoid leaving him in exile?
