i will try and test replacing Burnished Hart for Orzhov Keyrune or Marble Diamond.

Act of Authority its great

and im not sure to cut Myojin of Night's Reach it goes with the deck plan and can be reanimated for a second hand cleaning maybe for Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite

I would recommend cutting Myojin of Night's Reach. I think he is to slow to be worth it.

I would cut Burnished Hart for another mana rock. And I would swap Disenchant for Act of Authority.

Is this deck too slow? I like Daxos the Returned as a commander, but I usually think his deck is too much slow for a semi competitive group.

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.
