Lightform

Enchantment

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.

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.

Also, Scroll of Fate is just as good as Lightform and Cloudform if not better.

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.

Planeswalkers are great, but 2 stand out. Venser, the Sojourner does everything you need it to do and Tezzeret the Seeker gets your best cards.

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:

Crystal Ball

Seer's Lantern

Adarkar Valkyrie

Conundrum Sphinx

Duskmantle Seer

Enigma Sphinx

Geode Golem

Jeskai Infiltrator

Loyal Subordinate

Loyal Unicorn

Magus of the Balance

Ninja of the Deep Hours

Serra Avatar

Silent-Blade Oni

Sower of Discord

Army of the Damned

Skull Storm

Cloudform

Lightform

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! :)

Lanzo493 on WU Budget Blinky-boi (WIP)

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.

Swiftfoot Boots and Lightning Greaves . You’ll need to protect your commander. Most people target Brago.

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 ).

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
