Phyrexian Revoker Discussion
3 days ago
Hey thanks for checking out my deck!
Yep the Viscera Seer is just here because it's cheaper! However you'll often see competitive combo decks play a couple subpar clones of their combo pieces (in our case, Cartel Aristocrat and Blasting Station). This is because if we only play 4x Viscera Seer, we instantly lose to a Pithing Needle, Phyrexian Revoker, or Surgical Extraction. Also Blasting Station isn't bad itself; harder to destroy and can shoot down some problems by itself.
You're right that having 1 of specific answers is not a good idea since you'll never have them when you need it, and you'll get them when they're useless. The reason it's ok here is because we have 3 Beseech the Queens. Suddenly it's like we have 4 of every card in our deck (both combo pieces as well as answers). When you have tutors, you can afford to toolbox and carry more specific yet powerful answers. That said, I did decide to move Bontu's Last Reckoning and Surgical Extraction to the sideboard since they were a bit too narrow like you said.
All competitive decks play more fetchlands than shocklands. This is because Bloodstained Mire can fetch both Godless Shrine AND Swamp, so it's much better. This is very important because if our opponent plays , we fetch Swamp so we don't lose to Blood Moon. Plus we'll never need more than 2 sources.

Any aura that can return itself to the hand, like Flickering Ward, in conjunction with the extort from Blind Obedience and the infinite mana from bomberman is another game winning combo if Daxos has been shut down by cards like Phyrexian Revoker or something. There's always Exsanguinate as well.

I find Hero of Bladehold is your most expendable card at the higher portion of the curve, honestly it's just preference anything that costs a good amount of mana should be up for being cut.
As for the sideboard, here is a rough outline:
- First Disenchant and/or Smash to Smithereens to deal with opposing artifacts, most notably the Aether Vial seen in Merfolk.
- Relic of Progenitus to deal with graveyard
- Rest in Peace as a graveyard denial card
- Iroas, God of Victory to switch from ETB to full out agro.
- Dusk / Dawn as your choice wrath (you could also include a single copy of Wrath of God or Anger of the Gods)
- The fourth Path to Exile
- Card: stony silence to shut of artifacts
- Mana Tithe is not necessary but could be interesting and is really fun to play
- Phyrexian Revoker just in case you find some combo based decks.
Other cards to consider for SB (these are great sideboard cards that based on your matchups I don't see as being totally necessary but they can be considered):

Okay, so I am going to spout off any cards that I think are cuttable, but let me stress that it is only a suggestion.
This is of course my 2, so feel free to disregard anything I say! If you have questions about my choices, feel free to ask away and I will help clarify as best I can.
Cut Suggestions Show
Anyway, this is what I got to suggest. Your deck is great as is, but if you are really trying to fit any extra synergy I'd take a look at these first.
Extra Room Show
Thanks for reading my second novel on your page, as always, this is only my opinion and I hope it was useful to you!

The deck is coming together extremely nice! I have recently been building a stax Brago as well, so I have quite a bit of suggestions. In fact, I may have all of the suggestions, haha.
Seriously though, I apologize for my essay-length feedback...I tried to make it as aesthetically pleasing as I could.
Forgive Me Show
To continue to exploit and deprive opponent(s) of resources, Authority of the Consuls and Kismet are both good inclusions. Teferi, Temporal Archmage lets you untap permanents affected by Orbs, and at worst, can draw a little. For more guarantee of having your opponent's stuff not untap, you could also run Hokori, Dust Drinker.
Stonehorn Dignitary shuts down combat phases that an opponent might need to win with infinite creatures/deal lethal. Additionally, Orim's Chant could shut down the turn that your opponent needs to cast to go infinite.
Armageddon hurts opponents much more than you because of your artifact ramp.
For more ETBs and triggers, Panharmonicon can go crazy, or add Battle Mastery in here to double up Brago's trigger and double his Commander Damage (although that isn't necessarily the main plan, haha).

Rule of Law, Arcane Laboratory, and Eidolon of Rhetoric seem mandatory. Curse of Exhaustion and Overwhelming Splendor from Hour of Devastation seem like possibilities, especially since you can blink them with Brago to select a new target. Stony Silence and Dovescape can be used if you get desperate to slow people down or lock them out, since you can get rid of them yourself later if you need them gone. There's also Pithing Needle and Phyrexian Revoker if there are any specific things you need to shut down, like Food Chain (which only Revoker turns off, but Needle is useful for other things that Revoker isn't). But take some of my suggestions with a grain of salt, as I don't play stax myself.
