How to create a waving shape without the wave effect?

So i need a mask to wave like the wave effect without using the wave effect, I tried just animating the mask to follow the wave from the wave effect but as my mask animates, it does not look like its waving, just hills moving up and down.
So can a mask be animated to look like a wave?

Not sure what's going on -- a hand waving hello, a flag waving in the wind, a shock wave from a big explosion, a wave on the ocean, a sine wave...

...they all take different techniques. Can you be more specific?

Can you apply the wave warp effect to a solid layer, and use that layer as a track matte for the layer you want to mask?
