OmletMojo12 I have some nefarious plans on getting more creatures with return target creature(s) to owners' hands. I went to an edh Facebook page for ways to abuse god-eternal oketra, and they have me several ways. Standard way is to bring in weenies. I'm not a fan of weenies. I will have to rethink for the etb and tokens.
My goal is to get the cost low enough to repeat casting multiple times a turn. I might need a Vedalken Orrery for the flash aspect.
So, here are the planned maybe boards - since I'm going to ETB / casting creature triggers: Ancestral Statue - can actually become free to cast, since it's colorless, return target creature I control to my hand. Emancipation Angel - same as above, except Ivory Giant - taps all non-white creatures. Kor Skyfisher - return target creature I control . Panharmonicon - doubles etb triggers for my creatures - I don't really have artifact ETBs unless they're creatures. Reveillark - graveyard recursion for my weenies - ok. Stormfront Riders - return two creatures, whenever it or another creature is returned to my hand from play, adds at least two tokens into play when it enters the battlefield. Subjugator Angel - tap all creatures my opponents control Sunblast Angel - destroy all tapped creatures. Dust Elemental - flash, return three creatures I control to my hand. Eiganjo Free-Riders - return target creature I control at upkeep Enlightened Ascetic - destroy target enchantment or artifact War Priest of Thune - same as ascetic Thalia's Lancers - legendary creature tutor on a stick Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx - mono-color ramp Possessed Portal - sacrifice a creature? okay. I have lots of tokens. Regal Caracal - more tokens on etb.
Now I need ideas on what to exchange for the above. First thoughts are the two odrics - they're combat focused, not etb or casting focused.

I love the idea. I think it needs some more divine judgment though. Sunblast Angel , Oblation , Austere Command , Hour of Revelation , Akroma's Vengeance , Descend upon the Sinful , Fumigate , End Hostilities , and of course Wrath of God and Day of Judgment . Ravnica at War could be good depending on your meta. While playing boardwipes just for flavor wouldn't be the best idea, it's also a strategic decision. Angels are slower tribe, so it's a good idea to put everybody else behind.
Outside of boardwipes, Akroma's Memorial spells death for all opponents, Herald's Horn is another cost reducer, and True Conviction is a powerful anthem due to the fact that most of your creatures are big and flying.

Griselbrand for sure, this guy's money.
Avacyn, Angel of Hope is just a beast.
The Ur-Dragon seems terrifying here.
Shadowborn Apostle could fill in some huge gaps.
Id say give yourself a lot less removal and stuff to make your big guys untouchable like Lightning Greaves / Whispersilk Cloak / Darksteel Plate since your getting to cast big creatures for free, use your mana to protect them.
Removal can come from other stuff too like Sunblast Angel .
There are all sorts of fun control too like Dash Hopes / Dawn Charm to counter stuff. Once Kalia is un-touchable you should be good to go. Whip of Erebos can bring stuff back to play that gets killed.
Check out EDHREC, if you need more suggestions and can't get them here.

@king-saprolingThx for you suggestions!
, but these were replaced, by imo better options or because they tend to draw aggro, or kill my opponents creatures.
- Master Warcraft i think maybe i should give it another chance, though it's a oneshot.
- Masako the Humorless is somewhat antisynegetic, as the deck is more about getting the opponents to beat each other up, rather than doing this myself.
- Godsend as tempting as this card seems in terms of rattlesnake, i think this might be more seen as an offensive tool. Also i'm not really equipmentheavy.
- Lapse of Certainty not really a fan of this one, personel preferance.
- Bloodthirsty Blade is already ordered, still no clue what to cut for it.

I think you'd like Unquestioned Authority . Like Traveler's Cloak, it makes Brago unblockable and can be flickered with his ability for extra draw. These might interest you too: Curator's Ward (protects Brago and gives extra draw when he flickers himself! You can flicker the Ward as well, but be sure to leave 1 creature unflicked so the Ward has somewhere to land), Sunblast Angel , Heliod's Pilgrim , Totem-Guide Hartebeest , Flickerform , Coveted Jewel , Mulldrifter , Cloudblazer , Prophetic Prism , Azorius Signet , Fellwar Stone , Tsabo's Web , Nevermaker , Sovereigns of Lost Alara

I'd suggest you correct the tags to show that this is a Casual deck, not standard. That way people aren't confused when searching for the deck!
Below I've included a few suggestions that might help guide your deck building process:
Playing 3/4 copies of a few cards instead of playing 1/2 copies of many cards will help to improve your consistency. This will also aid in determining which synergies you should strive to focus on. For example; if wanting to focus on using life-gain as a means to pump your creatures, I would run 4 copies of Bloodthirsty Aerialist and Twinblade Paladin type cards, and cut cards that don't work well with them such as Duskborne Skymarcher . A card that I would also include if going this route would be Ajani's Pridemate .
When it comes to determining what your deck's focus is, be sure to only include cards that will benefit that plan. For example; following the previously discussed strategy of pumping creatures lends itself well to an aggressive style build. You are looking to attack your opponent each turn, and for that reason your creatures will be tapped more often than not. Due to this, running a card like Sunblast Angel will only work against you. Your opponents will try to leave their creatures untapped to block yours, and when Sunblast Angel enters the battlefield, it may only end up destroying your side of the board. For that reason I would shy away from playing cards like this, regardless of their individual power level. Cards I would suggest instead would be more copies of creatures like Vampire of the Dire Moon or Impassioned Orator , as they provide a means for additional "Whenever you gain life" triggers.
I hope this helps! Let me know if you need help with any more changes.
