Geist-Honored Monk become so strong and fast!

No, Omnath has a static ability that only fictions on the battlefield.

Cards such as Dungrove Elder, Crusader of Odric, and Geist-Honored Monk have what is known as a characteristic defining ability (CDA). CDAs function in all zones so you will be able to put them in if they are large enough.

Not bad. There's definitely a lot of synergy here. Here are some cards you might want to consider: Mother of Runes for protection, Weathered Wayfarer and Solemn Simulacrum for some more land insurance/ramp, Geist-Honored Monk and Angel of Invention are both great token generators on bodies, Path to Exile and Oblation are both decent spot removal. I also very much like Grasp of Fate as it exiles something from each of your opponents. Mind Stone and Hedron Archive are both nice mana rocks that can turn into cards when you need them. Finally, Gideon, Ally of Zendikar has become a lot more affordable since it rotated out and works great with your deck.

Cards I would consider cutting since they are either not that good or too slow for what they do: Court Street Denizen, Frontline Medic, God-Favored General, Intrepid Hero, Precinct Captain, Requiem Angel, Twilight Drover, Call for Unity, Gideon's Intervention, Mobilization, Deploy to the Front.

Geist-Honored Monk and Crusader of Odric count / equal to creatures, and that ability can be granted with Pennon Blade as well. Seraph of the Masses has a pretty high casting cost for it's ability, but flying can be gotten cheaper with Auras and Equipment. Griffin Guide for instance. A good Creature for Auras is Brood Keeper for generating Tokens. Conviction if you want to go that route.

Keep Lightning Bolt and + 2 Raise the Alarm and -2 Krenko's Command. Maybe invest in Isochron Scepter and focus on Instants. Boros Charm for damage and Dawn Charm for utility so you can choose different modes for different situations.

Boros Charm and Isochron Scepter come with a price tag but everything else is reasonable.

Potential Additions

  1. Panharmonicon is at least worth testing since you've upped your ETB count.

  2. Reveillark seems pretty good here, actually.

  3. Goblin Matron is definitely worth it as another copy of Kiki, which is your best "flicker" enabler and a nice combo piece. It gets enough other things to never be dead.

  4. Boros Charm is pretty good to save your dudes form board wipes or as a surprise double-strike win (you can give other people's commanders double strike, too). If there are a few voltron decks, that's probably worth it.

  5. Flickerwisp isn't the worst.

Potential Removals

  1. I know it's a pet card, but Thopter Engineer seems really low-impact in this deck since you're very low on artifact creatures/tokens. Sandsteppe Outcast has similar problems.

  2. Geist-Honored Monk is too slow IMO, since it has no evasion.

  3. Fervor also might be too slow, but it's easier to cast and harder to destroy than Hammer of Purphoros. Not sure if you even need the effect, really.

  4. I think Rally the Ancestors will be too expensive to cast for the cards you actually want. It might end up being dead pretty often.

  5. Dolmen Gate might be worth a card here, since you already have Frontline Medic and Iroas, God of Victory. Do you really need three copies of that effect? At least the other two have bodies most of the time.

The first additional cards that come to mind when I see your list and want to adhere to both your themes, are Karmic Guide and Geist-Honored Monk. I believe however, that Brago is much too powerful a control-commander, to restrict him to Spirit-tribal cards.

In case you have not done this already, I would recommend you pay a visit to the website and have a look at some of the typical cards people use in Brago decks. Some of the combo's you can pull off with him are insane.

Btw, I'd really consider adding some cards that make Brago unblockable/untouchable; otherwise it becomes hard to pull off your combo's. I'm using cards like Unquestioned Authority, Whispersilk Cloak and Steel of the Godhead.

Good luck and happy gaming! FYI: I would really appreciate your feedback on one of my decks. Feel free to comment/vote on any one of them.

It all depends on the competitiveness you are going for. I am not the best helper when it comes to the competitive scene since i am more of a casual player, so i won't be able to help you make it really competitive if that's what you are going for with the build.

If you are a casual player, i would recommend running cards you enjoy and would love to use.

However i will come with my thoughts on the cards :) Depending on your budget i would run 2-3 copies of Geist of Saint Traft (Keep in mind the legend rule when playing). Selfless Spirit i think you are primarily running it for it's sacrifice ability than the body itself.

Eidolon of Countless Battles seems pretty fun as a one of could possibly be a big threat in the late game

Sandsteppe Outcast Seems slow, but i can see the funny and potential combo with Anointed Procession.

For me Daxos of Meletis seems pretty solid to with just the first ability. Think of the combo between Daxos of Meletis and Invocation of Saint Traft or Eidolon of Countless Battles boosting him. Invocation of Saint Traft could be a possible suit for the deck to?

Found some other cards you may like Geist-Honored Monk (just saw you had suggested it, but gonna keep it here xD), Mausoleum Wanderer, Rattlechains and Nebelgast Herald.
