Play At Your Own Risk (2)


When it comes to spellslinging Mizzix is usually the go-to commander, however he has the requirement that spells cast be of higher CMC than the number of experience counters he has in order to get bigger discounts. This usually means that he has a certain ceiling that when reached can only be surpassed with X costed spells or proliferate effects. Vadrik on the other hand has no such ceiling as his discount depend on his own power and works great with cheap repeatable spells like Haze of Rage to increase his discount exponentially and enable stuff like Jaya's Immolating Inferno or Blue Sun's Zenith for 100+.
Mystical Tutor / Solve the Equation -> either Clockspinning, a combo piece or a finisher.

Invert / Invent -> Reiterate and Brass's Bounty is the usual go-to.

Firemind's Foresight -> Clockspinning, Invert / Invent plus either a counterspell for protection, Reiterate and Desperate Ritual

Fervent Mastery -> ideally Past in Flames, Firemind's Foresight + counter or ritual.

P.S. I love Fervent Mastery especially here such an underrated card.

As long as Vadrik has 3 or more power the following combos are enabled: storm-kil artist + Clockspinning - infinite counters either on Vadrik, any of the planeswalkers, makimg them also immune to damage-based removal so they can emblem again next turn. Can also be used to shrink opponents creatures if they have counters, kill their planeswalkers, infect them to death etc.

Electrodominance + Reiterate - Cast Electrodominance targeting an opponent for X>1, hold priority then cast Reiterate with buyback, copy the first Electrodominance let it resolve and when it ask you to cast a spell with CMC X>1 cast Reiterate without paying its mana cost, but pay the additional buyback cost. Repeat until you run out of opponents.

Reiterate + Frantic Search - results in looting away your library and some 30-40 spare mana.

Reiterate + either of Mana Geyser/Brass's Bounty/Desperate Ritual/Reality Spasm - results in infinite mana (either in treasures/red mana/untap of lands)

Explosive Welcome + Reiterate - infinite damage

Clockspinning + any planeswalker - immediate ultimate into either emblem or value

Additionally Clockspinning + Ral Zarek usually translates into infinite turn lock

Storm-Kiln Artist + Spell Burst + stacked Vadrik is a form of soft lock.
