Hi, I have a very similar elf focused Ezuri deck you might want to check out
Commander / EDH
SCORE: 2 | 44 VIEWS | IN 1 FOLDER
My advice, swap everything you can into a power 2 creature with the same function: Bramblecrush for Acidic Slime, Naturalize for Viridian Zealot, Call to Mind and Nature's Spiral for Eternal Witness and Den Protector, Simic Signet for some ofther mana dork, if possible get a Priest of Titania, Exclude for Silumgar Sorcerer, you get the idea.
Most of your creatures are green but your counters most of them require double blue. Try to use low cost counterspells that requiere only one blue mana. It doesen't matter if they aren't hard counters, usually the non creature spells will be the most dangerous for your, especially the sorceries. Disdainful Stroke, Stubborn Denial, Swan Song. Counterspell on a creature are also great on this deck, specially if they have evasion on their own Stratus Dancer, Siren Stormtamer, Mausoleum Wanderer.
You will need a ton of card draw, much more than in any other deck. Your spells are cheap and you will empty your hand really fast. Life's Legacy and Give / Take (you can ignore the Give part) are my favourites for this deck because they are really low cost and give you a ton of cards. There are higher cost spells that will get you about as much without having to consume your creature or your +1/+1 counters, but the low cost is critical.
Door of Destinies will make prevent Ezuri from getting experience and is quite slow. You don't really need it because Ezuri is there to buff your creatures. For similar effects in a more efficient and explosive way Master Biomancer or Bloodspore Thrinax. The best thing is Cultivator of Blades because it gives you three experience ounters, and only buffs your guys when it attacks, so Ezuri keeps getting experience.
Mycoloth is absurdly good with Ezuri, they feed each other just what each one of them wants.
You will also need a tons of ways to save Ezuri, he will be the target of all your opponents removal.
Try to include as few lands that enter tapped as possible, a second turn Elvish Mystic is not half as good.

The Constrictor and Scales helps you hit 5 counters sooner, making getting to that point just a little bit easier on your deck.
The remaining three help act as finishers, with Exsanguinate helping you to sustain/stabilize in the face of aggro.
Tutors such as Merchant Scroll, Mystical Tutor and Enlightened Tutor manage to avoid breaking the bank while helping to improve consistency of the deck, while also being cheap options that will help you to find the cards you want/need when you need them in a game.
I hope this was helpful!
JuQ on Brago Flicker
1 month ago
Unquestioned Authority instead of Holy Mantle (when brago flickers it, you draw a card)
Stonecloaker or Angel of Finality instead of Disposal Mummy
Chart a Course instead of Vision Skeins or basically any other decent draw spell.
Counterspell instead of Dream Fracture
Return to Dust instead of Disenchant
Pull from Tomorrow instead of Inspiration
Concentrate instead of Weave Fate
Scrivener instead of Call to Mind (you have few sorceries anyway)
Ghostway and Eerie Interlude instead of Acrobatic Maneuver and Cloudshift flickering until end of turn will make you avoid board wipes without having to counter it.
Whispersilk Cloak instead of Unbender Tine what's so important to untap anyway?
Cathars' Crusade and/or Call for Unity as finishers.
Duplicant, Deadeye Harpooner, Fiend Hunter (if this one leaves the battlefield when his first ability is still on the stack, he won't give anything back) and /or Phyrexian Ingester as removal.
Venser, the Sojourner because it's just awesome with Brago: You -1 to make all your stuff inblockable, then Brago flickers it and you +2 to flicker something. Rinse and repeat.

jreeves080591 You are half right. When a spell rebounds it does get exiled so Relearn and Call to Mind cant target it the turn it was casted to rebound. But, when the rebound triggers on the following upkeep the spell goes to the graveyard after it resolves making it a valid target for those 2 spells. That's what makes the combo very convoluted and I might have messed up the order, but it does work.

Some of the options I know aren't the most budget friendly but Mesmeric Orb Might be a better way than Traumatize to fill graveyards although with cards like Dralnu, Lich Lord and Call to Mind that's hard to tell. If you do add to the milling abilities, or even if you don't Undead Alchemist does a lot of work towards growing your horde. Geth, Lord of the Vault is also pretty handy at filling
Now this is meta dependent, but how often do you see yourself casting the CMC 6-8spells before the game ends?
You could cut some of the upper end to reinforce the lower with cards like Blood Artist and Zulaport Cutthroat. If you want to stay closer to theme, Vengeful Dead Also causes life loss. The first two would also help mitigate the negative side of Dark Prophecy and reinforce the existing cards like Diregraf Captain and Plague Belcher.
