- Does a death trigger, triggers when it goes to the graveyard as a manifest creature?
- Manifest a God while attacking
- Can I enchant Frost Walker with Cloudform?
- Does Dance of the Skywise remove hexproof if used on a Cloudformed card?
- Can I use an alternative casting cost to turn a manifested creature face-up?
When Cloudform enters the battlefield, it becomes an Aura with enchant creature. Manifest the top card of your library and attach Cloudform to it. (To manifest a card, put it onto the battlefield face down as a 2/2 creature. Turn it face up at any time for its mana cost if it's a creature card.)
Enchanted creature has flying and hexproof.

I love Brago. He’s fun. Once you get bouncing he gets crazy value. I do have some suggestions based off my experience with him.
I think card advantage is always great, so I love Mystic Remora , Cloudform , and Lightform . With infinite bounce combos, the form enchantments play your whole deck. Well, if you do decide to run more card advantage, you’ll need more mana rocks to keep up.
Here are 2 answer-all creatures: Riftwing Cloudskate and Cavalier of Dawn . You can bounce the resulting token, too. I love Angel of Serenity the most because it bounces three things and can hurt graveyard strategies.

Okey, cool! Then I would firstly recommend to take away four lands since (mathematically) you only need about 36 lands to have a good enough chance to draw them without drawing too many at any given time (also depends on how you shuffle of course ;) ). Then I would also again recommend to take a look at my deck when it comes to which lands you should play to up those a notch since there are a lot of lands that aren't very useful (especially the double-lands with no other effects) in the precon.
Other cards I genereally recommend to take out other than the lands:
So these are cards that I don't feel are good enough for the deck idea (casual/budget or not) or simply lack theme-quality. Feel free to ask if you need help replacing these cards with the cards you have or find cards that could fit the deck! :)

I’ve also played Brago and there are 2 very good budget things you can do with this deck. 1, ramp. 2, draw. Brago basically doubles your mana from mana rocks, so if you have a lot of mana and a lot of draw, that is powerful. That’s why Rhystic Study and Smothering Tithe cost so much.
Let’s start with ramp. He can blink mana rocks so your mana rocks need to enter untapped. No Fieldmist Borderpost effects. Instead, you have Mana Geode , Darksteel Ingot , Prismatic Lens , Hedron Archive , Basalt Monolith , Peregrine Drake (he’s fun), and anything else you have. Sol Ring and what not.
Now draw. Mystic Remora is definitely worth the price. It’ll draw you a ton of cards and Brago will keep the upkeep cost to . Other good draw is Trial of Knowledge , Sea Gate Oracle , Unquestioned Authority , Traveler's Cloak , Pentarch Ward , Curator's Ward (you draw cards and can trenchant your commander!) Heliod's Pilgrim , and more. There are always permanents that help you draw.
Shoutout to Cloudform and Lightform for cheating everything into play. Should you want to keep your manifested a creature a 2/2 instead of blinking it (for example, it’s an instant) you only need to blink the ~~~~form enchantment. Also, Reality Acid and Nevermaker do great.
Also, planeswalkers. Add them if you’ve got them. Like Narset, Parter of Veils . She’s good.
Those are my suggestions anyway. Now if you’re to take any cards out, I’d start with Serra's Blessing . Your commander can blink itself and all your creatures so they have pseudo-vigilance. I’d also remove instants and sorcerers from your deck that can be easily replaced with a blinkable permanent with the same effect ( Unsummon —> Nevermaker ).

Nice list. I run a pretty similar deck, except with AEthermage's Touch as the signature spell. Line of play is typically to use Aminatou's +1 on my turn to put a creature on top of my library, then pass turn. Then, cast Aethermage's touch on my opponent's turn, so the creature won't leave until the end of my next turn. Once that turn rolls around, I use Ami's -1 to blink the creature so I don't have to return it to my hand. It does add a couple extra steps compared to just using polymorph though. Perhaps a manifest subtheme would be useful with polymorph? Use Cloudform or some such to manifest a land, the polymorph it to get a creature.

Generally speaking, if it's a permanent, it will come into play. There is nothing "under" a manifest creature, the manifest tokens are merely aids to help you keep track.
If it's not a permanent, it will stay in whatever zone it used to flicker (probably exile in a case like Cloudshift ).
There's an Oracle ruling on Cloudform that reads like this: If an effect tries to return a face-down creature to the battlefield after it leaves (such as Aminatou’s second ability or Adarkar Valkyrie’s delayed triggered ability), that effect returns the card face up. If it tries to put an instant or sorcery card onto the battlefield this way, that card remains in its current zone instead.
You can see it yourself here (link to the card on Scryfall, rulings down towards the bottom).
There's a lot of other interactions to be aware of in those rulings if you have time as well. For example Break Open can't turn a non-permanent face-up.

Hey, thanks for making suggestions for my Brago deck, really appreciate that. I feel the deck you brewed here is very versatile. I really like how you make your mana curve so balanced and you have enough counterspells and removal cards to face all different situations. Some suggesetions and questions: why do you put Geist of Saint Traft in the deck? It does not work with Brago from my perspective; If you are using Lightform and Cloudform , I would suggest also put Sensei's Divining Top into the deck, just to reduce the chance you enchant a non-creature card with them and it is a good artifact by itself; Venser, the Sojourner is a nice planeswalker that has a high synergy with Brago because of its blink(+2) and unblockable(-1) abilities. Last, I suggest replace Detention Sphere with Oblivion Ring , they are basically the same card and the latter is easier to cast.

You might like Lightform and Cloudform for this deck! Flickering manifest cards with Brago brings them back in face-up, and when the auras re-enter you can manifest again. Strionic Resonator is also nuts, and goes infinite with enough mana rocks out :)
I had a Brago deck once before and I loved it, and these three cards were a huge part of that

Sorry for spaming, but I really like messing around with Aminatou Another idea. I know your deck focus on blinking, but I think that top deck manipulation is worth consider too, even a little. A lot of creature with etb have high mana cost, so I added card like Cloudform and Primordial Mist so I can manifest some big creature like Emeria Shepherd or just make land I don't need into 2/2. Then you could transform this usless 2/2 into samothing good with Proteus Staff, what do you think?
