Luminate Primordial Discussion

If you ran Deepglow Skate, you could add more planeswalkers to the deck to allow them to activate the ults immediately. Alchemist's Refuge and Leyline of Anticipation giving you flash is good to use Ramos on other player's turns, plus they go well with Seedborn Muse if you have it. Flameshadow Conjuring, Deadeye Navigator, Eerie Interlude, Faith's Reward, Progenitor Mimic, Stolen Identity, Rite of Replication, and Clone Legion allow you to abuse more ETB effects. Craterhoof Behemoth, Venser, Shaper Savant, Gonti, Lord of Luxury, Zealous Conscripts, Acidic Slime, Chancellor of the Forge, Chancellor of the Spires, Sepulchral Primordial, Luminate Primordial, Duplicant, Dragonlord Silumgar, Sower of Temptation, Hornet Queen, Deranged Hermit, Myr Battlesphere, Angel of Invention, Cultivator of Blades, have great ETB effects to be abused. Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Cytoplast Manipulator work really well with the Marchesa, the Black Rose you're running. Necropolis Regent, Master Biomancer, Reyhan, Last of the Abzan, Death's Presence, Experiment Kraj, and Verdurous Gearhulk are great for building up creatures with lots of +1/+1 counters. Greater Good, Prime Speaker Zegana, and Tishana, Voice of Thunder are great card draw sources for this deck. If you reanimate creatures from the graveyard often enough, Flayer of the Hatebound is strong in that department, and if you're looking for more big damage/lifeloss effects, Warstorm Surge, Stalking Vengeance, Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord, and Pathbreaker Ibex are good as wel. Conflux is really strong with Ramos in play, especially with Sakashima the Impostor copying him. If don't mind it being janky, you can copy your Panharmonicon by turning it into a creature with Karn, Silver Golem or March of the Machines. Take it a step further by adding Opalescence so your enchantments can be copied too. Ultimately, this is just supposed to be a big list of cards to draw inspiration from, not to all be added to the deck.

Some good Brago stuff with budget ($1) in mind:

Out goes Luminate Primordial in comes Desolation Twin. This change up is more about creating some new tokens. Primordial is good, its trigger is nice and exiling creaturesis sweet. I mostly want put twin in just to be able to create a multiple 10/10's with all the duplication effects. We'll see if the removal needs to come back, but of the cards I could have cut out for this swap Primordial seemed this easist to take out and not effect overall gameplay.

How are you planning to win ? I run a simular deck, but I ordered some bigger value creatures, to help get extra blink value. Yours however, seems to run a bit different.
I run cards like Kor Cartographer and Knight of the White Orchid to help me ramp more early than the untap X land cards. I run a bit more removal in the form of Luminate Primordial and Duplicant and I run some better beaters like Myr Battlesphere and Precursor Golem which can finish games quickly if i can blink it.
Other than that, I seem to have the same problem vs agro decks. I added some resilience vs more controlling decks (especially esper oloro in my meta), in an attempt to outvalue him, but time will tell ;)
Would like to hear your thoughts as well: Ephara, God of casual value

@hosshughes: Yeah guess I should have checked Reddit first. I'm glad you still found some uses for it though; that combo with Contested War Zone + Mirrorweave is hilarious. I had another thought (sorry my suggestions are so spread out, I comment them when I think of them). I think Diluvian Primordial might be good, since it casts an instant or sorcery for each of your opponents, possibly triggering your commander multiple times. I guess you could add Luminate Primordial if you really needed to. He doesn't really synergize in any way with the deck, he's basically just a Swords to Plowshares for each of your opponents. I think most of the Ravnica Primordials have good effects and are fairly budget, so I guess they're more of a general suggestion for any of your budget decks you make. Also, if you are taking deck suggestions, I would love to see you make a commander deck for Experiment Kraj. Messing around with activated abilities can be really fun, especially with things like Horseshoe Crab and Krosan Restorer. I currently run a Kraj deck and would be able to offer more suggestions if you'd like.

JaceTheSwagSculptor fancy meeting you again! hahaha
I intended this deck to be more on the casual side, and I do know how to optimize it via adding stax pieces/Strionic Resonator to the deck. When I asked for optimization, I meant mainly for cards that were more optimal in place of cards that might be lacking in this deck. Hopefully this clears up any confusion!
Peanut3181 I was considering Basalt Monolith in place of a mana rock, because you're able to untap it via Brago. I can most definitely add it in. I'll also add the Trial and Oath of Jace back in, since at worst they're basically sorcery spells that stay on the field lol.
I think the potential to go infinite is there for Peregrine Drake, which I'm a bit hesitant about. However, I will consider them!
Some of the cards are really good, but they're kinda expensive for me. I'll add them to the maybeboard if I can trade for them, or get my hands on them in general, I will add them in.
@both (or anyone reading this): So as I mentioned to Jace, I intended this for more casual games. But! As you both may know, Brago is quite the hate magnet on the table. I think if he is too much of one, I may just say fuck it and go for the more cutthroat build, because I enjoy my decks functioning consistently and winning. I have done this before, with my Breya deck, so this isn't new haha. Anyways, I want to hear opinions on the deck.
I'm also happy to test it out the way it is, and then see if I should go the more cutthroat route, since it wouldn't take much investment lol.

I have a Brago deck as well if you want to check them out. I have a couple suggestions s for ya.
I would also add in Venser, Shaper Savant. He just got a reprint so now is the time to get him.
Trial of Knowledge is hilarious with Brago.
Glen Elendra Archmage is gross because the persist counters go away when you flicker her.
Teferi, Temporal Archmage is absolutely amazing because of the utility of card draw and leaving mana up for a counterspell. Plus you can do his abilities more then once if you flicker him. Amazing value.
As for cuts, take out some of your mana rocks for the ones that I recommended, also if your going for a tempo/value deck I can't emphasize card draw enough. I have 12 sources in mine and I still feel like that sometimes isn't enough.
