Private Research Discussion

I agree with the manafixing and card draw comments above.
Anyhow, I like the perfect mana-curve. This is a very solid start.
So 1st I want to say Renegade Krasis just to put that out there, and here's some card draw I think you might find interesting:
Steady Progress, Tezzeret's Gambit, Private Research, and Sunset Pyramid
You might also like these storage lands for proliferate->ramp shenanigans:
Dreadship Reef, Calciform Pools, and Saltcrusted Steppe

I'm not sure Betrayal is a perfect solution for this deck. It's definitely an anti-combo with Rootwater Matriarch (if you were to steal a creature enchanted with Betrayal it would immediately lose the enchantment and then return to it's owner's control).

Nice deck, Vorel is pretty sweet! If you want, feel free to check out my Vorel deck, The Thirteenth Year.
I would recommend taking out Sturdy Hatchling, since you don't want to double the -1/-1 counters on it. Also, Private Research isn't useful, since the counters are put on the Aura, not on the creature, so Vorel can't double them.
I might also recommend omitting Simic Guildmage unless you have a lot more Auras in your deck, and you don't need Kavu Predator unless your play group has a lot of lifegain. Yisan Chord is a tricky card to use with Vorel, since you want to make sure you don't double his verse counters beyond the CMC of creatures in your deck. Since your highest CMC is 6, I'd recommend cutting him.

Also card draw, or at least card advantage, is important in here so here are some decent card draw auras (yes, I know there's some good card draw in here, but why not have more?): Fate Foretold, Improvised Armor, Ophidian Eye, Pentarch Ward, Private Research (less good, but can work if you enchant something early and then move it to Bruna), Sisay's Ingenuity, Traveler's Cloak. Ok that's my two bits. I'll stop now and you can ignore most of these suggestions.
