Creature — Human Wizard
When Reflector Mage enters the battlefield, return target creature an opponent controls to its owner's hand. That creature's owner can't cast spells with the same name as that creature until your next turn.

Reflector Mage Discussion

I like the decks theme of tokens and the life gain sub-theme. In terms of protection and removal, I would point you to my own Brago deck.
He is more of a control deck (or at least, tries to be) until I can get my little engines online to go for the combo win.
Venser, Shaper Savant, Man-o'-War and Exclusion Mage and some neat creatures that work like the Reflector Mage that you already run. Venser can also be used to bounce any other permanent, which includes lands, if you want to be that guy!
Venser is also a beautiful addition, as it can also put spells back into players hands when it enters. This allows you to stop the uncounterable spells, along with Narset's Reversal.
I hope there are some cards in my list that you may consider adding to your own for more protection. You have a couple in your list that I will be considering for mine. +1 for another fellow Brago player!!

Thanks for the up vote JeppeFugl. I’m working on incorporating Zirda, the Dawnwaker into the sideboard now, to take advantage of the Companion mechanic. Bad part is that the deck building restriction regulates Reflector Mage into the sideboard too.

Thanks for the comment HELLcaster19.
As far as the auras are considered, this is rules faux pas by me. I was under the impression you could order the triggers and re-entry of creatures and just re-attach it to whatever you wished. These will almost certainly come out in favour of of a more efficient card draw spell.
Alirios, Enraptured I cracked in pre-release and I wanted to try and make it work, but I have to say it is first on the chopping block. Whirler Rogue is in to give Brago unblockable & provide chump blockers.
Reflector Mage is definitely on the to buy list. One of those cards I just hadn't gotten around to buying. Version 1 of the deck was about £55 and have been upgrading slowly. Also goes with synergising with Marble Titan & Dusk / Dawn much better.
Thanks for the suggestions!

pugzly101 Great deck!
May I ask what the Traveler's Cloak and Pentarch Ward generally target upon re-entry(if they are flickered at all)? Assuming that they are being flickered by Brago, along with himself, they will not be able to attach themselves to your commander.
May I also suggest a strong consideration for Reflector Mage or possibly even a Lavinia of the Tenth? Personally, I would swap out the Alirios, Enraptured and/or Whirler Rogue (although, an unblockable army does sound appealing).Unless you plan to go full token generation and play hyper aggresively, the two cards do not fit the general theme.
These two offer a lot of breathing room as the Mage can bounce creatures back and prevent them from being cast for an entire round. Lavinia is just great at locking out a large chunk of your opponents board!
Or perhaps even an Aven Fogbringer if you really want to cut someone out of the game for a while :)

As for the Reflector Mage and Phyrexian Revoker, I personally prefer the mage. Just because Revoker can be situational, and can not really be abused in the same way the mage can, as Revoker can only have one target unless you have a Panharmonicon on board or clone its trigger with Strionic Resonator.
Reflector Mage just seems a little more valuable in my opinion. Especially against tribal decks (ie. Slivers, that give each other additional effects or strength. Reflector can at least remove them for an entire turn, removing the effects from the other remaining ones).
Again though, it is all based on how you gear your deck. :) I like trying to put as much as I can back into your hand, and removing mana sources (rocks, lands) to force discards. Or just counter their synergy cards as they come out!

I recently imposed a little monetary embargo on myself due to just having finished my tenth commander deck ;D but my scope's already set on Trickbind believe me that. Reflector Mage I tend to switch in and out with Phyrexian Revoker. Also I like to think of Sorcerous Spyglass as a permanent version of Trickbind, which also gives you info about your opponents hands, which often is invalueable, PLUS it is fetchable via Tribute Mage and resettable for upcoming threats via bragoblinks.

CaptainToll My deck may also tend to be more geared towards a blink oriented one, which is why I may prefer to have those included in the deck as well.
I also run a beauty of a card; Reflector Mage. So good for only as it also prevents them from recasting any creature that you bounce back.
Trickbind is also a really nifty stifle spell to have. With Split Second, it will be that much harder for your opponents to respond to it, and it can shut down a potentially disgusting card on your opponents board for the turn. I dont know what your budget looks like, but I believe it sits around $5 :)
