Wow, this looks like a fun deck to play. I would suggest a Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx and a Gilded Lotus if you have them laying about. Everyone likes more mana in a burn deck.

GobboE thanks for the on color suggestions! My personal (current) favorite method of dealing with Bruna is Arcane Lighthouse + Silence the Believers . However, I long for the days of tuck when I'd banish Bruna to the deck with Oblation or Chaos Warp upon the deceleration of her as an attacker.

chiri I have indeed considered it, but I don't remember if I had it in my maybe-board before your suggestion or not. My playgroup strangely doesn't run many flyers overall, a deck might have one or two for the most part. We do have a Bruna, Light of Alabaster player though and that would indeed put the breaks on that deck. However, he also runs True-Name Nemesis in the deck as a mini commander of sorts. I think that my strategy with this deck will be to attack anyone with a large air force first and hope that I can beat them with the incremental gains this deck currently has. If that fails then, yeah, Bower Passage or similar card will enter the deck.

How is the deck playing for you? Ive always found discard to be hard to build around in EDH unless you were making use of the wheels on the bus and Nekusar, the Mindrazer. Hypnotic Specter, Liliana's Caress, Abandon Hope, Banshee of the Dread Choir, and Hymn to Tourach all seem like solid includes for your deck. There are many, upon many black cards with the discard theme, these are just the ones that stood out to me on a quick search.

The biggest disadvantage Daxos the Returned has is the lack of evasive ability granted to his tokens. So in my mind, this is the place to start upgrading the deck. Sadly, some of the items Im going to mention will be a tad pricy so without knowing your budget, they may be out of range. Akroma's Memorial is a great card that would fit here as the key words are just strong with this card. A cheaper alternative would be Eldrazi Monument. To buff one token, or really any one creature, Eldrazi Conscription is great and synergistic with your commander. A cheaper alternative would be True Conviction which, while not as strong is a good alternative that adds incremental value as you make more tokens with Draxos. In addition to this unlike Eldrazi Conscription it impacts all of your creatures. Another card that does some serious work, Blind Obedience. I have seriously lost games do to it.

If you want to be a bit control-ish you could add Martyr's Bond and Ashnod's Altar which will ramp you some colorless mana and potentially clear the board of threats when used in conjunction. I dont know your feelings on tutors, but Diabolic Tutor, Increasing Ambition and Beseech the Queen are all fairly inexpensive and can help you find the pieces you need. I would also recommend one of the cheaper printings of Swords to Plowshares as it is just a solid piece of removal and can be fairly inexpensive.
