Abdel Adrian, Gorion's Ward
Legendary Creature — Human Warrior
When Abdel Adrian, Gorion's Ward enters the battlefield, exile any number of other nonland permanents you control until Abdel Adrian leaves the battlefield. Create a 1/1 white Soldier creature token for each permanent exiled this way.
Choose a Background (You can have a Background as a second commander.)

You can link cards by enclosing them in double brackets [ ].
This just makes it easier for everyone to know what's happening :)
Since they are exiled until the permanent returns, they will not be exiled by the trigger of the permanent you put into the graveyard as a result of the legend rule.
This is usually found on the rulings of the cards themselves, but Abdel apparently doesn't have it, so here are some similar cards.
- "If Chained to the Rocks leaves the battlefield before its triggered ability resolves, the target creature won't be exiled. (2013-09-15)"
- "If Suspension Field leaves the battlefield before its enters-the-battlefield ability resolves, the target creature won’t be exiled. (2014-09-20)"
- "If Hixus leaves the battlefield before its triggered ability resolves, the creature that dealt combat damage to you won’t be exiled. (2015-06-22)"
- "If Grasp of Fate leaves the battlefield before its triggered ability resolves, no nonland permanents will be exiled. (2015-11-04)"

Personally I'd run a token generator or blink cmdr like Abdel Adrian, Gorion's Ward (with your choice of background) as I like the idea of using Settle the Wreckage as a ramp spell and I think it works well with him. Basri Ket and Launch the Fleet are similar effects as Abdel.
Additionally you could use cards like Zuran Orb or Troubled Healer in combination with Faith's Reward/Second Sunrise/Planar Birth for extra landfall triggers. If you are running the Kormus Bell combo you could use creature sac-outlets like Altar of Dementia or Phyrexian Altar. But if the sac outlets don't play into the rest of the deck you might be better of running Oswald Fiddlebender as your cmdr to ensure you get the right combination of artifacts.
Also can't go wrong with Sun Titan + fetch lands (i.e. Fabled Passage). If you go the flicker route you can get some great value out of this. Alternatively Sevinne's Reclamation/Crucible of Worlds also work well with fetch-lands and landfall
TLDR: Landfall-Flicker or Landfall-Recursion or combination of both.

I like the idea of a Lulu, Loyal Hollyphant and Clan Crafter as a modular deck. This lets you go wide or kill with commander damage as Lulu has built in evasion. Originally I wanted to build Barrin, Master Wizard but it is hard to justify that price tag.
Volo, Itinerant Scholar and Haunted One mill deck utilizing Changelings and Cloudstone Curio to build up the creature count. Then you will draw a bunch of cards and with Psychic Corrosion in play you can mill for tons. You can also take advantage of Kindred Discovery and Altar of Dementia. When you activate Volo's ability Haunted One will be active so you can sacrifice your changelings to the Altar of Dementia to mill. Then they will return due to undying which will trigger Kindred Discovery and draw you cards to trigger Psychic Corrosion. And then you can sacrifice your changelings to Altar of Dementia once again.
Durnan of the Yawning Portal + Popular Entertainer or Passionate Archaeologist (which is his paired background). But instead of using him as a cost reducer for big creatures you would run either small artifact creatures or small creatures in general so you will be paying 0 to 1 mana for each creature. Ideally with multi combat you can get a ton of creatures exiled then cast them all for free or cheap on one turn. This will build the storm count in which you can cast something like Ignite Memories or Volcanic Awakening to close out the game.

Excalibur478 Thanks! I'm really glad you like the deck, a friend of mine used to play a Brago deck years ago and I remember I hated playing against it, so I really tried to make something more interesting lol
I haven't playtested this one that much yet, but the weakest aspect is definitely closing out the game. Currently the main wincon is token generation with Blessed Sanctuary, Myr Battlesphere, Abdel Adrian, Gorion's Ward, Whirler Rogue, Blade Splicer and Pegasus Guardian, but I found that it's actually pretty slow. Approach of the Second Sun is a good backup wincon, but it paints a huge target on your back so it's better if you can redraw it quickly or lock down the board, and the deck is quite good at both os those things.
The deck can't protect the board very well against wipes, only having Eerie Interlude as protection or maybe a counterspell, but it can rebuild pretty consistently after one given how much card advantage it can generate.
Getting creatures tapped so Far Traveler can blink them isn't really an issue but can be a problem sometimes, so I've been thinking about adding more tap effects, although this can also be solved by breaking the budget a bit and adding more blink enablers like Conjurer's Closet
Thanks again for the comment and the upvote! If you have any more questions or maybe some suggestions, I'm all ears :)

Abdel Adrian, Gorion's Ward could make you a ridiculous number of tokens here that you could flood the board with. just bounce him a couple times and you’ve got an overwhelming army.

Wall of Omens will trigger during the Cloudshift resolution, but it will wait until the next time a player receives priority to go on the stack. When the active player would receive priority both the Abdel Adrian, Gorion's Ward trigger and the Wall of Omens trigger will go on the stack, and since you control both you will decide the order they go on the stack and therefore resolve.
The order won't really matter though since abilities, once triggered/activated, exist independently of their sources and you will still draw the card from Wall of Omens entering the battlefield even if it has since left.
