Act of Authority Discussion

oh man... Knighthood seems super good in this deck... what with the death touching assassins and all. Mortal Combat also looks very interesting. I do have 36 creatures but 20 in the yard is a lot and it's a do nothing enchantment so maybe not? Knighthood definitely though. Gonna have to find a spot for Act of Authority as well it'd be amazing in my meta. Nobody runs artifact/enchantment hate and everyone plays artifacts and enchantments that end the game if left unchecked. It's frustrating as hell being the only one that deals with Mirari's Wake and such every game.

This is a good list.

I'd swap Act of Authority for Aura of Silence and Dark Tutelage for Phyrexian Arena. Phyrexian Unlife might also be nice for an extra way to combo with AdNaus.

What does Skirge Familiar do here?

speaking from experience, you will want to find room for Act of Authority. it is a pure workhorse in brago. and one brago player to another, what do you think about putting the Solemnity combos with Decree of Silence, Phyrexian Unlife, or Mystic Remora?

Not bad but need a bit more work, have you considered any of these. Gift of Immortality, Diplomatic Immunity, and Vanishing can help protect Zur. Keep in mind that Zur's effect forces aura's to attach to creatures ignoring both shroud and Hexproof and when a creature is phased out, nothing can effect them and all cards attached to them go with them.

Ethereal Armor to hit your opponent hard.

Nevermore to block out a commander you don't like. Aura of Silence and Act of Authority to handle your opponents artifacts and enchantments. Journey to Nowhere, Banishing Light, and Grasp of Fate for more board control. Serra's Sanctum just because.

Maybe even Rest in Peace for graveyard hate + Energy Field. If you have Rest In Peace cards can't go to graveyards, Energy Field doesn't go away, you can't take damage.

If you need more draw some cheap additions to go with brago's blink = Traveler's Cloak, Unquestioned Authority, Pentarch Ward

Act of Authority to remove your opponents stuff you dont like

Definitely grab yourself a Command Tower for some color fixing in your lands

Swiftfoot Boots gives brago protection + haste to trigger his ability faster

Sol Ring is a big commander staple and will help you cast brago faster, so will Basalt Monolith

Peregrine Drake to give you more mana to cast stuff, blink with brago for big mana turns

Cloudform and Lightform = get your creatures on the battlefield as 2/2's with evasion then cast them for their mana costs

These are all pretty cheap cards hope this helped :)

You can probably try out Strionic Resonator + Sol Ring + Brago hitting someone in the face. You hit them with Brago, phase out both artifacts, use the two mana from sol ring to copy Brago's ability, and rinse and repeat until your opponents realize that it's an infinite loop.

Reality Acid, Nevermaker and Act of Authority also go considerably well with Brago's combat damage ability.

Palinchron also goes nicely with Brago's ability.

I made a $60 version of Brago, King Eternal that did really well for a casual deck. Sadly, I don't have a list because it's been upgraded but here are the main pieces.

Strionic Resonator, Altar of the Brood, Sol Ring (any amount of mana rocks that produce a total of two mana), and brago = infinite mill

Strionic Resonator + Oblivion Ring/Detention Sphere + brago exiles the board permanently

Muddle the Mixture toots for Strionic Resonator

other cool cards are Peregrine Drake, Grand Arbiter Augustin IV, Thorn of Amethyst, Vryn Wingmare, Tangle Wire, Parallax Tide, Parallax Wave, Reality Acid, Stunt Double/Clever Impersonator, Traveler's Cloak, Act of Authority, Storm Crow for power, Treachery, Phyrexian Ingester, Resolute Archangel, Duplicant, Sun Titan, Genesis Chamber, Stasis (personal favorite), Mystic Remora, Lavinia of the Tenth, Lyev Skyknight, Cloudblazer, and Unquestioned Authority.

Brago plays best in a pod. 1v1, he doesn't really have a lot of time to set up his stax/combo. I hope you like the deck as much as I do!

Here is my current build.
