Great list! A few changes I would suggest would be to replace Sower of Discord with Rune-Scarred Demon, Aminatou’s Augury with Insidious Dreams, Elspeth with Kaya, Ghost Assassin (so much value!), and maybe add some more mana rocks like Talisman of Progress and Talisman of Dominance.

My list has some cards you might also want to try. It’s (Brago) stax-oriented so I think some creatures there would work here too.

KylerStar why do you think it's so ambitious? The mana curve? I've playtested this deck a LOT and I've found one of its biggest weaknesses is running out of steam, so that's why I have included so many board wipes and big, game-changing cards. This deck is built for the long haul; if I get too many cards like Talisman of Progress late-game then I'm toast. Not that Talisman of Progress is particularly weak per se, but there's enough answers in the decklist to allow me to fall a little behind, and I think falling behind and then "resetting" the board is preferable to trying to ramp like a green deck.

Your deck is ambitious to say the least. Haha. Take a look at mine, Oloro, Esper King, I personally prefer Talisman of Progress and/or Talisman of Dominance to Darksteel Ingot any day, specially to ramp large things out faster.

Though we have two entirely different play styles, I like to look at other decks to freshen my ideas up.

I would add some more mana rocks since you're using Brago. Gilded Lotus, Talisman of Progress and Talisman of Dominance if you're looking for cheap ones plues Mana Crypt and Mana Vault if budget is not an issue.

I went for stax in my list so if you want yours to be a bit on the mean side, consider adding some stax pieces as well.

You've already got a pretty solid concept here, what with the big extra turn spells, and evasion for narset.

What you'll want first seems to be more ramp, cards like Talisman of Progress, Gilded Lotus, Mind Stone, Fellwar Stone, anything to get Narset doing her thing as fast as you can.

The win con is a bit harder to put together on a tighter budget, but if you're ok with being a bit dirty, I'd recommend a Grafted Exoskeleton, for quick and efficient lethal's that get the most out of your limited extra turns. Cards like Open the Armory can help you get important pieces like Steel of the Godhead, or the previously mentioned exoskeleton, to ensure Narset can keep swinging, and hit hard.

The other way you can squeeze more use out of your limited extra turn cards is with spells like Reverberate, or enchantments like Swarm Intelligence.

Finally, cards like Brainstorm as rare as they are can be a big help to this deck, as you can put any big dumb spells stuck in your hand back into your deck before Narset attacks, to ensure that you can get the most effective use out of them. An Isochron Scepter could be a possible addition if you're really set on abusing tutors like Mystical Tutor, or top-deck manipulation like Brainstorm.

Anyways, that's all I got. Good luck with the deck, and all the best to you in your games.

Even with 10 mana rocks, I feel your land count is too low and your average cmc is too high if you're concerned with deck consistency and getting mana screwed. You should be closer to 36-38 lands with only that many mana rocks and be closer to an average cmc of 3.0 (or lower). Also you should really run more 2-drop rocks like Thought Vessel and Talisman of Progress because a 2-drop rock on turn 2 gets you a turn 3 Brago (assuming you make all 3 land drops).

Brago is not a counterspell deck, so only devote like 4-6 counterspells slots in the deck as protection for your spells. Drop the counterspells with cmc 3 or more and add in a Swan Song.

Personally, I wouldn't be running creature wraths in Brago since they set you back pretty badly. Just run a Cyclonic Rift and add in more targeted removal that can be flickered, like Oblivion Ring and Detention Sphere, as answers to your opponent's shenanigans.

Dropping my budget list for your reference. The deck was fairly consistent, almost too consistent, for my semi casual playgroup: The Once and Future King

First I'll start with your Voltron package. Aqueous Form needs to replace Invisibility. Spectra Ward is bad (protection gets in your way) and can be replaced with Steel of the Godhead. I'd also find room for Shielded by Faith for more wrath protection. Your equipment is underwhelming and I'd probably only keep the boots and get Sword of Feast and Famine ((and Aggravated Assault to go with it).

Your ramp package is really small for a 6 drop you want out asap. I'd suggest dropping Darksteel Ingot and Jeskai Banner (3 drops that only add 1 mana don't belong here) to make room for the other 2 signets, Talisman of Progress, Fellwar Stone, and Pentad Prism. 3 drops to consider include Basalt Monolith, Worn Powerstone, and Coalition Relic. I'm also partial to Crystal Vein as ramp here.

Haste is also important so Narset doesn't have to survive a turn. Consider Mass Hysteria, Need for Speed, Ashling's Prerogative, and Hall of the Bandit Lord.

The_Notebook: Great catch...it was supposed to be Talisman of Progress.

Squiggy686the2nd: Excellent suggestions! Will definitely find room for them especially recruiter.
