Other things I'm surprised not to see in here: Teferi's Puzzle Box, Mindmoil, Arjun, the Shifting Flame. These don't necessarily combo with the Brallin side of the deck, but it DOES work with Shabraz. Not only that, this can help us get into other cards and keep fueling our draw and discard. I also personally don't like running Planeswalkers, but Dack Fayden can be pretty good. Faithless Looting on a body and then also stealing an artifact seems pretty good. Other cards I was surprised to not see were Thrill of Possibility, Cathartic Reunion, Frantic Search, Careful Study, Tormenting Voice, Rhystic Study, Jeskai Ascendancy, Whirlwind of Thought.
I'm curious as to why Shark Typhoon is in the deck though. A 6 Mana make an X/X Shark doesn't seem overly impressive when we only have small cantrip like spells. I also personally don't like Runehorn Hellkite, cause its either a 6 mana 5/5 with flying, or something we need to discard to then pay mana to wheel. I feel like the deck has a nice top end, but it lacks a lot of early game. We are basically hoping to get one of our commanders out ASAP, but it seems like we are hoping to hit a lot of ramp early on to then get someone out and THEN do our draw/discard thing.
Other fun things or cards not mentioned is Sigil of Sleep. Putting this on one of the pingers (Brallin, Glint-Horn Buccaneer, one of the Niv's) lets us begin to bounce creatures to players hands whenever we deal damage. So we start discarding cards, we can start returning problem threats to the player's hands. Tireless Tribe is an instant speed, repeatable discard outlet. Sure it doesn't do anything other than that, but it could be the difference between killing a person or not. Basilisk Collar/Loxodon Warhammer/Shadowspear are alternative ways to use Brallin like ping effects for things other than Infect (if play groups don't like it for example). This also fits into the "voltron" style of the deck, allowing intense lifegain. Early game cards we can add are Jace, Vryn's Prodigy Flip/Magus of the Bazaar. These lets us repeatedly draw and discard, and Jace can flip to allow us to flash back cards. Wild Research is a cool way to help tutor up our wincons from our enchantments or if we need a counterspell or something while synergizing with Brallin pinger effects. We could also include some of the hatebear like cards from white to help slow down our opponents in the early game if it comes down to it.
All in all, I like the deck idea. I LIKE flexible decks that can switch gears when it needs to, and isn't solely linear ("I tutor this card and win). You can play casually and just try to voltron Shabraz, or enable combo kills with Brallin. Other than a handful of cards, I am REALLY interested in possibly building this deck!

@Komamura I like your style. Thank you for the insight!
Benthic Biomancer is kinda silly. My friend told me about it since he too was looking to build Shabraz and Brallin, Skyshark Rider Flip. Usually involving Glint-Horn Buccaneer, you give it lifelink with Heliod, Sun-Crowned, discard to deal 1 damage, gain 1 life, put the +1/+1 counter on the Biomancer, draw and discard, deal 1 damage, gain 1 life, draw/discard, repeat until gg
Kozilek & Ulamog are mostly meant to be discarded to reshuffle haha but maybe I'll ramp to hard cast ?
Key to the City will likely come out of the deck. Undecided atm.
Whirlwind of Thought is a whirlwind slam dunk, just gotta wait until the new set arrives. I'll have to print out Brallin&Shabraz proxies if I want to use the deck currently
Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur is super cruel lmao I'll think about it
@Thornspire my pleasure, and I very much appreciate the kind words!
I have a few friends that bring the heat, so I need to keep em on their toes with spot removal, boardwipes, and I should probably run more counterspells in my blue decks. They are a necessary evil
Cephalid Coliseum WOW I'm going online and ordering it right now
The Ozolith is interesting. Once I get some games in, if I feel like my commanders are being removed constantly I'll probably invest in one
Very torn on Sigil of Sleep. Been seeing it in a lot of lists and I know I have a playset somewhere. Two friends with graveyard theme decks run a lot of ETB creatures I'm scared of (Plaguecrafter etc), but it can be a continued control piece for one mana on Brallin
Thanks again y'all! You both have fun builds and it's neat to see differences & similarities in the three.
I can't want to actually play the deck!

Hey, thanks for the nice comment on my list! I took a look at yours and I have to say it probably wins more games than mine, simply because you play a lot more interaction (which is good) and you have access to the zero mana ramp.
Some cards I would definitely consider:
Cephalid Coliseum: An amazing land in the later stages of the game with negligable cost of life loss. Three triggers from both commanders and with Narset you can make someone else discard three cards.
The Ozolith: Low opportunity cost and saves all the counters from both commanders (even if bounced or exiled). Also cute with Benthic Biomancer.
Sigil of Sleep: one mana to enchant Brallin and every time you discard a card you can bounce a creature from each opponent. Seems like a good deal to me.
Land Tax: Since you're not playing green, this will give you a lot of cards to discard and lets you keep the goodies.
Have a nice day :)

Cards I am unsure about:
Benthic Biomancer is interesting but unless im missing something it doesnt combo off. Having a draw engine is nice but a 3 card combo that doesnt win the game seems underwelming. (again, I may just be missing something there)
Psychosis Crawler is a good card but very expensive. Its also a card that generally draws in attention. People know what you are trying to do at that point and really work to kill you.
Tireless Tribe in theory is a great blocker or means to discard your hand. In reality I would say its a pretty situational card. Or a win more card.
Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre is one of the best creatures in EDH but is stupid expensive. You have a ton of artifact ramp so its probably worth it. Shuffling your graveyard into your library is great but you already have Kozilek, Butcher of Truth.
Key to the City is interesting. brallin gives shabraz trample so unblockable isnt as important. Definitely a niche card but could work.
Cards I like:
Cavalier of Flame Love the concept of the card but dont own one to test it.
Dream Trawler is a great one. Need to consider adding this to my deck.
Heliod, Sun-Crowned is a card i had in my deck to begin with but seemed like a cool extra. im already gaining life and increasing the size of my creatures.
Mana Crypt is just lovely. Need one myself.
Whirlwind of Thought would fit into your deck nicely. You have way more artifacts and smaller spells to cast.
Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur would be a good card to replace the big boi ulamog. (if you wanted to take it out)

Maybe some simple free discard outlets to let you churn through your deck rather easily. when you put Curiosity on Brallin, Skyshark Rider, damage the whole table enough times for a win but if not draw your whole deck. Cards like Aquamoeba, Dream Trawler, Land's Edge, Mind Over Matter, Patrol Hound, Prognostic Sphinx, Resilient Wanderer, Thalakos Drifters, Tireless Tribe, Trained Pronghorn, and Patchwork Gnomes all work. Your choice

Hey thanks for the reply!
Yeah, I know about the cannot regenerate in response to sacrifice thing. No worries there. At the moment I'm busy building a budget version (LGS restricted us to 25 euros) for Teshar and I'm using your list as some sort of guideline. I need to slim down on the budget part and was looking for alternatives. For me Patchwork Gnomes has the added benefit that it can be sacrificed to KCI. Plus it acts as a historic spell which Tireless Tribe does not, unfortunately. And the gnomes are also 20 cents cheaper on Scryfall. Our LGS uses the Scryfall deckbuilder to check pricetags for decks.
I could share my budget list once it's complete. Maybe we could contemplate on it even further?

Would Patchwork Gnomes make the list?
It's a discard outlet which can be recurred with any engine. Plus it's an artifact which feeds some sac outlets better than Tireless Tribe
