I also like Sun Droplet, Pristine Talisman, Path of Bravery, Twilight Prophet, Invoke the Divine and Blind Obedience.

Some weak cards I can spot are: Lena, Selfless Champion, Ancestor Dragon, Abhorrent Overlord, Flaying Tendrils. Also, the White sun seems like overkill - dumping all your mana that this deck has so many amazing ways of using into JUST 2/2 cats seems like a waste to me.

And for Pristine Talisman I dont like 3cmc mana rocks unless they are really powerfull like Chromatic Lantern

Great deck you got there, really interesting!

I was just wondering one thing. Does this deck have enough card draw through Oloro's command trigger? I do not see that many lifegain triggers. For example Pristine Talisman, could be a nice artifact for ramp and an easy lifegain trigger. Or do you not experience problems drawing wise?

And on a sidenote, have you thought about Sensei's Divining Top or Sphinx's Revelation

You'll be surprised how fast spine will come out with blink decks since I used to use brago and blink decks

atm Ixidron is not needed I would use Resolute Archangel to make yourself semi-immortal

replace Pristine Talisman with Mana Web

there's this card I'm testing in my yuriko fairy (dark brago) deck it's called Gulf Squid

but so far it's looks fine. When I update my brago blink and yuriko bounce deck I'll let you know if I see something else :)

Ben's Recommendations:

Ramp:

Worn Powerstone

Mind Stone

Armillary Sphere or Wayfarer's Bauble

Black Market

Burnished Hart

Solemn Simulacrum I know, he's annoying and expensive and in every deck but he RAmPS AND DRAWS AND IS COLOURLESS LIKE BLEH

Pristine Talisman Triggers your life-gain abilities.

Draw:

Greed

Gravestorm MAN that theming

Ob Nixilis Reignited one of THE cheapest walkers around

Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip

Krav, the Unredeemed and his partner Regna, the Redeemer can generate card advantage by searching for each other, seem to be on theme (life gain and tokens are both parts of this deck, see your commander for details, but krav specifically lets you draw a shit TON of cards. Also, gives you some sac outlet ability and ridiculously tiny activation cost)

Necropotence this IS a more expensive card and with good reason. But of all the "more expensive card draw" cards i believe it is the LEAST more expensive. Seriously this card blows games out. (SIDENOTE this works SUPER WELL with your axis of mortality, necropotence yourself to 1 in response to the trigger then swap with someone to go right back to 35)

Harvester of Souls Gimme card draw for your creatures. Tax'ing the hell out of the entry to hell.

Actually on-theme cards that are really mean:

Magus of the Abyss There's a REASON people refer to chumping every turn as abyss-ing

Infernal Darkness a card you can probably find for 3$ or less, ruins people's happy fun times (except you)

Call to the Grave See above regarding magyss of the abyss.

Patron of the Nezumi Pay the death tax

World Queller This one's especially spicy cause you can choose a permanent type you DON'T have one of.

Angelic Arbiter A little high on the curve tbh but does make your opponents choose combat or spells

Aura of Silence I really think this is a must-have card for this strat.

Archfiend of Depravity New government law, every player shall have no more than 2 creatures. Communism at work, the government gets as many as it wants.

Magister of Worth A VERY thematic board wipe. (it will ALWAYS be a board wipe)

Cliffhaven Vampire For all those extorts and life linkers.

High Priest of Penance

Karmic Justice

Leonin Arbiter Seriously punishes decks with greedy manabases and green decks

Aven Mindcensor See Leonin Arbiter

Oathsworn Vampire This guy is great card advantage and a recurrable chump for your "symmetric" forced sacrifice effects

Windborn Muse Better than Baird IMO

Orb of Dreams EVERYTHING is tapped

Utter End Seems to me a better card than Mortify, even if it costs 1 more.

Thalia, Heretic Cathar

Hushwing Gryff Flash torpor orb fucks SO MANY DECKS

Descent into Madness Although this is only particularly strong if you have a huge draw-engine to keep exiling bad cards from your hand instead of permanents.

False Prophet HOW IS THIS CARD SO CHEAP???

Words of Waste Can be powerful but may require too much tuning of mana/draw to be actually good.

Kataki, War's Wage expensive but powerful effect.

That's all for now. too many options honestly.

You could probably upgrade some of your 3 cmc 1 mana rocks to give you some more utility.

Seer's Lantern, Unstable Obelisk, or Victory Chimes instead of Manalith and Pristine Talisman. They're all under a dollar so pretty cheap upgrades.
