KaraZorEl on Brago's only weakness? Weeping Angels.. He blinks.

Since Panharmonicon is the best card in your deck, you'll want to use things like Copy Artifact and Sculpting Steel.

Love the idea of your deck, on first sight it seems like something I'd love to play!

You could include Echo Mage for more value from your instants and sorceries

If you want to duplicate Mana Web you can use Copy Artifact but otherwise this would be a dead card in your hand since you run little artifacts

Eiti3 on Fun deck idea.

Chaotic Fun Braids, Conjurer Adept, nice.

May I offer a sub-theme? Paradox Haze.

Paradox Haze with all the enchantment copiers (Copy Enchantment, Clever Impersonator, Mycosynth Lattice + Phyrexian Metamorph / Sculpting Steel / Copy Artifact)

I offer this sub-theme purely for how explosive it could potentially be with cards like Braids, Conjurer Adept. If you had all of those Paradox Hazes out, that would be 6 upkeeps per turn. You literally dump your hand, so long as they're all non-enchantment permanents. This kind of deck makes me think Eternal Dominion would be a REALLY good card. Search your deck up to 6 times per turn, dumping out all the enchantments, including cards like Fool's Demise and False Demise. Attaching those buggers onto Braids, Conjurer Adept to keep her out and on the field because you can't cast spells after casting Eternal Dominion.

If you plan to run with this theme, I would suggest a few cards like:

  • Gate to the AEther: Still be chaotic fun when someone doesn't have anything in hand.
  • Strionic Resonator: Can use this useful guy to double either Paradox Haze or Braids, Conjurer Adept.
  • Followed Footsteps: Up to 6 (7 w/ Strionic Resonator) token buddies!
  • Lifeline: Another way to keep Braids, Conjurer Adept and other various creatures alive. Would recommend an exile card or two in the case of threats.
  • Call to the Kindred: If you want to go for a Human/Wizard theme (pretty strong imo, especially with cards like Azami, Lady of Scrolls).
  • Chronozoa: Laugh like a madman when you play this guy.
  • Ghirapur Orrery: In the case you lose your hand, DRAW 3!... all before Braids, Conjurer Adept's triggered ability.
  • Mind Unbound: One card, two card, four card, sixteen. 32 oh wait, I just drew my deck and lost the game... Best run that Laboratory Maniac + Leyline of Anticipation / Vedalken Orrery
  • Sun Droplet/Venser's Journal: Great ways to stay alive vs aggro decks.
  • Tamiyo's Journal: Draw or tutor. Up to you.
  • Tetravus: Laugh and then cry at all the math you have to do...
  • Thassa, God of the Sea; Scyring is pretty good.
  • Timesifter: Magicalhacker suggested this, but I think it could be hilarious with a high CMC deck this may end up becoming, in duplicity with the multiple upkeeps. However, it is a little less fun because people often get upset about losing a wincon or two.
  • Well of Ideas: Not an upkeep card, but decent in it's own right.
  • Curse of Echoes: Not an upkeep card, but I noticed you left it out in your opening post, so I thought I might mention it in the slight chance you didn't know about it!
  • Let me know what you think, and if you end up liking my idea, tag me when you make the deck!

    One card I am very fond of is Sandstone Oracle. It is easily cheated into play with Master Transmuter and reanimation effects and oroduces so much xard advantage for multiplayer. Since you are having trouble getting off to fast starts I would strongly encourage adding more graveyard shenanighans. Buried Alive, Entomb, Intuition, Faithless Looting, Wheel of Fortune, Windfall etc are great enablers and cheap reanimation effects like Victimize Reanimate, Animate Dead will alow you to put your fat artifacts into play much faster. The other option is to upgrade your ramp package by adding Gilded Lotus and many artifact clones like Copy Artifact, Phyrexian Metamorph and Sculpting Steel. Worst case scenario You can copy opponents Sol Rings.

    I love a good combo deck. give Altar of the Brood a try. Nill all for free spells is great. Mind Over Matter might open some doors for you as well, infinite mana and what not. Ancient Tomb / Underworld Connections /Geier Reach Sanitarium I've always been a fan of Clock of Omens and Voltaic Key as well. Elusive Spellfist goes well with your combo as well. Extra tutors that might be viable to you are Artificer's Intuition and Disciple of Deceit. Copy Artifact might have a home for you as well. Skywise Teachings can produce lots of tokens for you as well. Heartwood Storyteller has some synergy with your deck as well. Hope it helps. Peace.

    you should include Clever Impersonator and/or Copy Artifact because getting 2 astral slides in play is when things get really good

    I would also want to make room for one more worse-eternal-witness effects like Tilling Treefolk, Archaeomancer or Auramancer that can return a cycling card to your hand. Auramancer is nice because it can recur slide.

    Also Sun Titan can recur so many of the important pieces

    I would cut invigorating boon and probably also lightning rift. Also I would focus more on cards that cycle for just 1 mana or 2 colorless, rather than cards that are harder to cycle but give marginal upside like death pulse, slice and dice or the Decrees.

    Alara reborn has some cards that cycle for 1 hybrid mana: Sigil of the Nayan Gods, Glassdust Hulk, Architects of Will, Monstrous Carabid, Deadshot Minotaur

    If you're going all-in on the artifact theme I would strongly suggest cards: Goblin Welder Gilded Lotus Copy Artifact, Phyrexian Metamorph and Sculpting Steel. Copying a gilded lotus can break the game wide open pretty easily and the cards are just solid in general.
