Brago, King Eternal Discussion

Hello! Here a Rafiq player playing in a casual meta. I'm just rebuilding my deck after having it stolen (at least I got to play my new Noble Hierarch beforehand).
I'm having a horrible time (again) choosing a path for this deck. My meta is slower and much more casual, so I won't be including many control elements in your list. I find myself going toward a pseudo-voltron (cuz you know, Rafiq) deck combined with enchantments. Being Brago, King Eternal and Derevi, Empyrial Tactician my go-to creatures for the elements of control I need. What is your opinion on Stonehewer Giant? Have you considered the new Staggering Insight or Trailblazer's Boots?
My current decklist is under "maintenance" with 87 cards, but I'll leave you the link for it so you can check it out and comment on it. I'll happily take your advice! https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/22-08-19-edh-bant/

Bring to Light does actually get a kicked Rite of Replication. Bring to Light says "you may [b]cast[/b] that card without paying its mana cost." When you cast it for 0 mana, you can still pay the kicker.
I think Eerie Interlude would help a lot since it 1) offers protection from boardwipes, 2) can be used on your opponents' turns after combat, 3) combos GREAT with Archaeomancer, and 4) has to be countered or discarded when you don't have the mana.

Hey, I like the name, nice budget deck.
What are you using infinite mana of Peregrine + Deadeye for? It appears you have removed the mana sinks and other combo pieces. Brago, King Eternal's no mana cost repeatable flicking can do a lot more than Deadeye and Brago is a flying creature. Bident of Thassa for half the price would do a lot more than Deadeye with your flying creatures.
It seems that Deadeye is most expensive price card in your deck and it's not doing much. You could cut Deadeye to clear some price to improve the manabase with some better budget lands such as Command Tower, Prairie Stream, Port Town and Ash Barrens. Consider Bident of Thassa and Mask of Memory? These have excellent budget repeatable draw effects with attacking flying creatures. These cards could replace Failure and Deadeye Navigator.
Could cut Marble Diamond/Sky Diamond and add Azorius Signet/Mind Stone. These are better two drop mana rocks especially with Brago because they ETB untapped. Could cut Mask of Avacyn/Neurok Stealthsuit and add Swiftfoot Boots. The haste and hexproof of Boots especially haste is overall better than Mask/Stealthsuit.
Good luck with your deck.

Minion Reflector,Mimic Vat,Both these artifacts let you make short term copies of a scarecrow for 2-3 mana. These not only can be used to swing but allow will count as 2-3 mana permanent removal with your commander
Ephemerate, is a one mana blink creatures once for two turns essentially giving you two blow up triggers for one mana
Conjurer's Closet, Gives you a blink each turn for recurring value
Mirror Entity, not only will give you a way to destroy a permanent because it is a changeling but also gives you a win condition if you have a lot of scarecrows.

@Yellowcandy To be honest with you it has been a LONG time since I first built this deck. Years ago when I had first assembled it, it was actually pretty competitive. EDH wasn't a very researched format yet and there has been a slight power creep in the effectiveness of generals. Its still a lot of fun and I am always going to come back to the game and keep optimizing Xiahou Dun, the One-Eyed to find the optimal version of an EDH deck featuring him as the general. That being said, however, I have taken this deck (about a year ago) into very competitive environments (facing decks like Zur the Enchanter, The Gitrog Monster, and Brago, King Eternal. It holds its own pretty well against tier 2 decks because of the lack of suspicion generated from playing a "low tier" commander (Xiahou being as low as Tier 4 on the EDH tier list by thegigibeast, ShaperSavant, and LabManiac_Sigi is something I do have to disagree with). Mono gives us a lot of ways to abuse Xiahou and use him significantly more effectively than other tier 4 generals.
Overall, these days, the deck is just tons of fun while still not immediately comboing off. It takes some time to achieve, but playing politically is definitely a strength in this deck!

47 lands seems like a ton. I would think you could cut down some and go up some ramp.

Such a great commander! When it was first announced I immediately started building the deck, it is so fun to play. The drawback is that the deck is very commander-dependent.
You absolutely need to add High Alert as a redundancy, it is much better than Assault Formation, although you could keep both and lose something with less value like The Birth of Meletis. Then lose your least-favourite wall and add Chulane, Teller of Tales, which will add draw and land drops.
You will need to protect you board; I see you have a few cards in that price range, so I would highly recommend Privileged Position. You may also want to have Diplomatic Immunity to protect Arcades or Chulane.
I hope some of these suggestions are helpful; if looking for inspiration you can consult We Don't Need No Education.

So it really depends on what direction you want the deck to go. Mistmeadow Witch, Brago, King Eternal, Eldrazi Displacer, Roon of the Hidden Realm, Thassa, Deep-Dwelling, and Soulherder are good enablers to get more ETBs. Yarok, the Desecrated is just another Panharmonicon so another great choice. If you want to lean more on Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, Zealous Conscripts, Restoration Angel, and Felidar Guardian go infinite with Kiki and are also good on their own. Some solid ramp/utility creatures are Agent of Treachery, Coiling Oracle, Peregrine Drake, Dockside Extortionist, Lavinia of the Tenth Golos, Tireless Pilgrim, Gonti, Lord of Luxury, Sepulchral Primordial, Pramikon, Sky Rampart, and Stonehorn Dignitary, Dockside and Peregrine being able to go infinite with Deadeye Navigator. Some good removal are Hostage Taker, Knight of Autumn, Meteor Golem, Reclamation Sage, Reflector Mage, and Venser, Shaper Savant. And that's just scratching the surface. What are you looking to do in particular?
