Rishadan Brigand Discussion

Hello! I like your list, I play a couple variations of Brago myself and absolutely love him. I do have a couple of suggestions that might help.
I'd consider removing these cards:
Tsabo's Web - It's an okay stax card, but it just doesn't do enough to warrant a slot IMO. I would much rather run a tutor or a harder stax/hate piece here.
Voltaic Key - If you were running Grim Monolith and/or Mana Vault I would better understand why this is in here, but as it is it doesn't do much. I ran this in an early version of Brago, I swapped it out for Rings of Brighthearth for infinite mana instead.
Brave the Elements - This is neat and cheap to cast, but is too niche IMO. I would rather run either another counterspell to stop my board from being wiped, or something like Eerie Interlude to bypass it.
Dragonlord Ojutai - This is SUPER slow. I used to run Cloudblazer Which is similar, but I swapped that out recently for Curator's Ward for the same draw + Brago protection, which has worked with decent success.
Inquisitor Exarch - I absolutely love this card, I ordered a foil version as soon as I saw it. Unfortunately, it doesn't do anything unless you're going infinite with Strionic, at which point you should already be winning the game anyway.
I'd consider changing:
Rishadan Brigand - I agree that this is super strong. However, it's very expensive to cast. This card has the strongest version of this effect which is wonderful, however if your plan with this is to go infinite with Strionic Resonator, it's better to run Rishadan Cutpurse instead. (Maybe you could throw in Rishadan Footpad too for backup, why not!)
Authority of the Consuls - Entering tapped effects are wonderful, but this is by far the weakest version. I would reccomend swapping this out for Blind Obedience so it hits artifacts too, plus you can tutor for this from Muddle the Mixture, OR for the ultimate lock with Stasis, swap it for Frozen AEther/Kismet.
Take a look at my deck lists when you get a chance, I'm happy to discuss!

Bust out DA OG PIRATE BOIS
Especially with any way to blink these dudes, this is just guaranteed Haterade.

One of my friends ran a similar lockdown deck like this. I remember Rishadan Cutpurse, Rishadan Footpad and Rishadan Brigand all being oppressively powerful. Especially when he was able to get all three out relatively early thanks to Recruiter of the Guard

TheWallinator74, I think that Diluvian Primordial would be an excellent addition to this deck. Not only is it flexible as a 5/5, but it also lets me cast those instants that the opponent may deem necessary for their buildups.
Duplicant and Clever Impersonator are definitely intriguing to me. The sole reason I used Stunt Double was to attempt at taking a lower-cost approach to this deck; however, I do want to be able to use Clever Impersonator for certain in the future.
Luminate Primordial seems like a card that would take a little bit to get out, and by that time, I'll already have things like Rishadan Brigand, as I don't want the opponent to benefit from what I'd be doing. However, I do see your reasoning. I'll consider it in the future.
Thank you for the suggestions! I appreciate it.

Cool deck, the name made me laugh!
So here are some suggestions:
why no Wall of Omens?
as Glacial Chasm and Maze of Ith can shut down your whole gameplan you should include some more ways to get rid of them permanently. By now you can only kill them with Spine of Ish Sah or very slowly with Reality Acid (as brago already can't connect when they're on board) or bounce them once with Venser, Shaper Savant or Riftwing Cloudskate. This is why you might include Strip Mine and Tectonic Edge. They're also bf with Sun Titan ;)

Expedition Map! For the flavor and because it's an EDH staple.
