When Lightform enters the battlefield, it becomes an Aura with enchant creature. Manifest the top card of your library and attach Lightform 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 lifelink.

I like Cloudform since it could protect the commander and cheat out cards as well! That will have to find a slot. Lightform may need some more thought as to what it would replace since the lifelink is not super helpful. Thanks for the thoughts!

These are the only cards like this and only come in these colours, Ugin colours if you will

True. I've also played Brago, and that's what I end up doing a lot. But Scroll of Fate also plays out your entire deck if you just have a single etb draw effect during the strionic resonator combo. While it doesn't generate card advantage like Lightform does, it manifests twice as many cards per turn and lets you choose what to manifest. At worst, it functions like a powerful mana rock, but at its best, its a combo piece.

Adding on to the whole Parallax Tide discussion, when you go infinite with Strionic Resonator the exiled targets remain permanently exiled. If you use the stack to right, you can permanently exile your target. With any card that has an exile effect that is separated from the returning-to-play effect ( Angel of Serenity but not Banishing Light ), then while the exile effect is on the stack, you use strionic resonator to copy Brago's ability. Your card will leave play and trigger its return-to-play effect before the original exile ability even resolves. That means it will never return once its been exiled. That's why Parallax Tide , Parallax Wave , and Angel of Serenity are so powerful.
Cloudform and Lightform are great value engines. Scroll of Fate is just as good. Free cast anything from your hand? Sign me up! Not to mention, you get to use it twice a turn. They are also wincons for when you go infinite with strionic resonator.

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! :)
