Whispersilk Cloak Discussion

Nah, the Greaves actually prevent Brago from targeting himself with his own ability; usually something I don't want. Having the ability to make Brago untap himself is huge when I'm running Stasis, Static Orb, and Embargo.
I run Whispersilk Cloak because I feel the unblockable aspect makes up for the loss of self-exiling, but since stax matches often stretch on for an extended time, the tradeoff of haste isn't worthwhile on the Greaves. I may end up adding back in Swiftfoot Boots though. Unquestioned Authority and Steel of the Godhead are also high on my list of possible future additions if any of the current list ends up not being up to snuff. I've only had the chance to test the deck in a handful of 1v1 and 3 player free-for-all matches, so I'm still cutting and adding cards.

Not sure about running Living Death in here. Often times it might help your opponent more than you if they are graveyard based.
Breaking / Entering is okay. Do you mill yourself often? If you start running more delve stuff I could see it being useful. If you're just casting the other half there is better stuff to run.
I understand why you have Waste Not in here, but it requires two things to function well: your commander is out, and you connect without them blocking. If you draw it early game it will just sit on the board and not do much. I would cut it.
Magus of the Abyss seems against your gameplan a bit. I don't like that it gives them a choice.
I can also recommend a couple of cards to run instead of other cards, if you can acquire them:
I really like the deck -- and running Nicol Bolas as your commander. Hope some of that was helpful, I know it was super long lol.

With a few ways to make your creatures unblockable, e.g. Whispersilk Cloak, Raven Guild Master is an absolute force (especially with its Morph cost, so it can sneak through the defenses then flip before combat damage is dealt so the Master's ability triggers upon smacking a bitch in the face).

Did some deck changes recently, take a look above. I really like the Thassa, God of the Sea and Trepanation Blade ideas. I also want to implement Jace's Phantasm. My fear if I take out Whispersilk Cloak and Aqueous Form for Thassa, I'll really be banking on 4 cards for the unblockable scheme. I'm unsure what to pull for Thassa, God of the Sea and Jace's Phantasm.

I've had my eye on Leonin Shikari and was wanting to include her. Think I went with Brass Squire instead because he does the same without paying any equip cost (as well as more budget). Granted, he can only do that once and has to wait a turn to do so. So if I do pick her up it will probably replace the lil guy or Spirit Bonds. Spirit Bonds isn't the greatest that's for sure, especially when you run MLD. It was more of a budget item than anything. Lightning Greaves is amazing, but I think my idiot self traded it in (can't seem to find it). Spose I really can't make the shroud argument and run Whispersilk Cloak... Between Whispersilk Cloak, Swiftfoot Boots and his indestructibility I'm not "too" worried about spot removal though I know it will still happen (exile mostly). I might test it out should I ever snag a copy...again (sigh).

I may be missing something here, but is there a reason for you to run Ancient Den? If not this deck seems better off with a Serra's Sanctum. Pilgrim's Eye and Commander's Sphere are IMO lame cards I think you'd be better off with a Thran Dynamo and Worn Powerstone since you shouldn't have to worry about having color issues in a mono colored deck. Kemba, Kha Regent, Masterwork of Ingenuity and Nahiri, the Lithomancer seem underwhelming considering the low amount of equipments in your deck if you really want to spawn some tokens I can offer some potentially better suggestions. If want to run board wipes I see no reason not to have Mass Calcify instead of one of the others probably Martial Coup. Alabaster Mage really doesn't provide that great of an ability Angelic Skirmisher, Noble Purpose, and True Conviction are all arguably better. I'd drop Mask of Avacyn for Swiftfoot Boots or Whispersilk Cloak any day. Serra Avenger may be good for its cost, but it usually does very little in commander in my experience because there are bigger meaner things. Secluded Steppe and Drifting Meadow could be left for Land Tax and Endless Horizons or pretty much anything else since 36 land is usually enough I just like tax and horizons because they thin your deck out. A Heliod deck without Ajani's Chosen is just baffling. Spirit Bonds is a decent token spawner and source of indestructibility. Alliance of Arms seems good for you, everybody will get tokens but yours will likely be bigger. Thraben Doomsayer isn't too powerful, but it does make a difference especially when played early or if you're at really low life for whatever reason. Darien, King of Kjeldor is either a great token spawner or a great reason for your opponents not to attack you. And then something about sphere of saftey

Just a heads up Sylvan Primordial is banned in commander so he needs to be switched out. I would also look at picking up Lurking Predators as a good way of cheating in more of your big creatures into play.
Nice deck list though!

Spine of Ish Sah does work.
This honestly looks a lot more like a Captain Sisay build than an ETB Brago build. I play brago for lots of soul sister nonsense to gain life, then destruction etb (aforementioned spine, Sunblast Angel, etc.) and detain lock (you have a good start for this). You can also build up a flying fort with Moat and prison cards (Ghostly Prison, Propaganda). Probably should include the standard Lightning Greaves, Swiftfoot Boots, Whispersilk Cloak package to ensure brago sticks, as well as unblockable tools (Steel of the Godhead and more) so brago always triggers.
