Since you mentioned needing draw, I can recommend all of these dumb things Green does:
-Evolutionary Leap, while technically not draw, makes it so your creatures can't be exiled and it basically draws you into something good (good insurance for wipes that Shalai doesn't protect against or for Shalai herself). Fecundity is in the same vein as this, but it's a symmetrical effect, so watch out.
-Garruk, Primal Hunter's draw cards ability really likes that you have big angels.
Last thing I'd suggest is Temur Sabertooth, but that's because I suggest him in basically any deck running green. Lets you reuse ETBs with cards like Eternal Witness and Luminate Primordial if you wind up running him. Also protects Shalai and basically says "**** the command tax."

Reflector Mage could be good to bounce things and prevent them from being recast for a turn. If you're running Peregrine Drake you may as well run Palinchron, and also Phantasmal Image or Deadeye Navigator for the infinite mana. Deadeye is of course amazing with a deck full of ETBs anyway. Eldrazi Displacer is another option.
Knight of the White Orchid might be able to ramp you if there are some green decks with lots of land.
Kozilek doesn't work with blinking because you need to cast it for the card draw.

Emeria, The Sky Ruin is another free reanimation per turn for monowhite decks. Luminate Primordial could be a useful creature to include that removes a few of your opponents' best creatures. Yosei, the Morning Star could be a good creature to bring back repeatedly as well.

Rune-Scarred Demon, Magister of Worth, Selfless Squire, Luminate Primordial,Solemn Simulacrum,Wall of Omens,Angel of Serenity, and Karmic Guide all work well with Triad of Fates flicker ability as well.

It looks like you're going for a light sweep/reanimator strat, so I'll recommend cards based on thatBurnished Hart, Oreskos Explorer. Dualcaster Mage brings a lot of versatility. Fiend Hunter if you pursue a few more sac outlets. Palace Jailer might be ok regardless. Skullclamp is great in any deck that wants its creatures to die. Stonecloaker for the blink/recursion value, maybe Cranial Archive to also cover the graveyard base without messing you up too badly. Archon of Justice.
Vizier of Deferment is kind of cute, though maybe too situational.
You have 2 karmic guides.

Instead of having a lot of the bigger draw effects like Sphinx's Revelation or Blue Sun's Zenith you should be running things like Brainstorm Ponder Mystic Remora Preordain Serum Visions these are just better cards and just in general if you have blue in your deck you should almost always be running these cards.
You should take out the less impactful cards. These are cards like Pentarch Ward Reality Acid Solemn Simulacrum Palinchron Angel of Invention Clever Impersonator Phyrexian Metamorph Stonehorn Dignitary Luminate Primordial DuplicantAltar of the Brood Disdainful Stroke Counterspell Disallow Return to Dust Spine of Ish Sah. Admittedly some of these cards are good in a Brago deck and they are fun to play with. But you are neglecting the fact that you don't have enough ramp, or a consistent and wincon that can be tutored for. While you have the tangle wire and static orb combo as one wincon, you have a lot of random cards that in the end don't do that much.
In a competitive match you need to be throwing things like Thorn of Amethyst or Sphere of Resistance turn 1, because your opponent will be close to wining by turn 2 or 3. A stronger card that you need is Blind Obedience this will have more impact by itself than all the creatures you have combined. This is because your game plan is way too slow. For you to get real value out of your cards they must be on the battlefield for more than 1 turn. This is of course only if you are trying to be seriously competitive. Having oppressive cards like Ethersworn Canonist or Arcane Laboratory and other hatebears will actually make people hate you rather than a slow overtime value deck. Because this prevents them from even getting to play magic at all.

TheWallinator74, I think that Diluvian Primordial would be an excellent addition to this deck. Not only is it flexible as a 5/5, but it also lets me cast those instants that the opponent may deem necessary for their buildups.
Duplicant and Clever Impersonator are definitely intriguing to me. The sole reason I used Stunt Double was to attempt at taking a lower-cost approach to this deck; however, I do want to be able to use Clever Impersonator for certain in the future.
Luminate Primordial seems like a card that would take a little bit to get out, and by that time, I'll already have things like Rishadan Brigand, as I don't want the opponent to benefit from what I'd be doing. However, I do see your reasoning. I'll consider it in the future.
Thank you for the suggestions! I appreciate it.
