maybe consider Winding Constrictor, Scute Mob & Cloudfin Raptor cuz theyre cheap and get you lots of counters to work with. Triskelion, Walking Ballista & Darksteel Reactor for alt win cons. also proliferate lets you exploit the heck out of Parallax Wave, Parallax Tide & City of Shadows! nice deck!

"If i have something like Felidar Guardian out and my commander, and I exile 4 opponents creatures with Parallax Wave, Flicker Parallax Tide on the Stack with my commander and then add the exile of my Felidar Guardian onto the stack it would resolve with Felidar Guardian being exiled, Parallax Wave being flickered and coming back with 5 counters on it and Felidar would come back so i would Flicker My commander."

What you explained is: On the field: Felidar Guardian, Aminatou, Parallax Wave.

You activate Parallax Wave 4! times. With the ability on the stack you use Aminatou's -1 Ability. (this can't be done unless you can activate planeswalker abilities with instant speed).

Then you would use Parallax Wave to exile Felidar Guardian, letting it resolve (If I understood it correctly).

(This leaves Parallax wave with 0 counters and it needs to be sacrificed - if you exiled 4 of your opponents creatures.)

- ultimately returning it onto the battlefield along with your opponents creatures.

So 1) you need to make sure you can activate your planeswalker as an instant. and
2) You need to make sure you are not using up all 5 counters on Parallax Wave. You need some errata on this one :=)

At one point you are also confusing Parallax Tide and Parallax Wave with one another.

Interesting list. I would go with Parallax Wave instead of Tide though. And since you’re using Brago, I think the deck would benefit from less lands and more mana rocks like Talismans, Fellwar Stone, even Mana Vault and Thran Dynamo.

I also recommend you try Eldrazi Displacer. It’s quite good when you have enough sources of Wastes mana.

Parallax Tide and Parallax Wave would be op here if you get multiple proliferate or even the tide before a land board wipe.

Megalomania I do agree that brago is underwhelming and will likely cut it but I was thinking more along the lines of using Recruiter of the Guard. my reasoning for this is that I feel this deck does best when I use my ETB creatures in a toolbox strategy,and since a fair portion of my powerful etb triggers are on small bodies recruiter becomes a excellent tutor.Ghostly Flicker is alright, but I'd rather have a Ghostway since I only really need flicker effect of creatures. But I am very interested in Parallax Wave and think I'll give it a try so thanks for the suggestion!

My deck went through a similar configuration. I took out Brago which hardly survives long enough to attack. I also added Ghostly Flicker which is able to hit artifacts, creatures and lands. You might also want to look into adding Parallax Wave. It has been very effective in my deck which is a lot similar to yours. Check it out if you have the time. I am sure we can help each other out.

Eldrazi Displacer seems like a good card here. Iona, Shield of Emeria too.

In my Aminatou deck, I am able to control the board using Parallax Wave and some flicker effects. You might want to explore this option. Leonin Relic-Warder would help as well.

You can consider Parallax Wave and Parallax Tide, they work well with Blink effects.

When combined with Strionic Resonator, they can permanently remove the lands/creatures if you time your abilities well. Here's the sequence:

  1. Blink effect added to the stack targeting any permanent you control;

  2. Hold priority and activate Parallax Wave to exile a creature target opponent controls;

  3. Using Strionic Resonator, copy the Blink effect targeting Parallax Wave this time.

Let the abilities on the stack resolve from (3) to (1).

Resolving (3) would exile Parallax Wave, triggering it's "Leaves Play" ability but no creatures have been removed thus far, so none will be returned to play.

Resolving (2) lets you remove opponent's creature(s)... permanently!

Finally, let (1) resolve and you're done.
