Ran a variant of this with Shriekmaw and Cloudshift . Not very consistent, but fun when it worked.

I like your deck.

My main comments are that you only have 4 creatures that benefit from flickering, and 6 flicker spells. I would definitely lean into the flicker more and go up to a playset of Cloudshift , then increase the number of creatures that you can flicker. I think Elite Spellbinder can be flickered to have two cards exiled at once that have taxed costs (if this doesn't work then I agree that Silverquill Silencer is better for the deck). And my biggest suggestion is definitely a playest of Shriekmaw . You can do the same stuff you do on grief with this bad boy to remove two creatures plus get a 3/2 for only 2 mana. I'd probably cut some of the other removal, like Damn , and maybe the mirran crusaders, for these.

Lastly, I know I said flickerable creatures that control the opponent's hand are good, but unfortunately most of them have a negative effect when leaving the battlefield such as Thought-Knot Seer , Tidehollow Sculler (love this card), Kitesail Freebooter etc. But one that doesn't have this is Sin Collector . I think he is worth considering for the sideboard since he hits a lot of annoying cards like TTB, scapeshift, BTL, loam, etc.

A random sidenote: You have 4x Surgical mainboard and 2x sideboard, which I assume was because you changed one of them without changing the other. You could maybe replace them with Vanishing Verse .

With these additions, the deck should become more of a streamlined "flicker control" deck instead of just a Grief flicker combo in a BW control shell.

P.S. I just did some research and it turns out flickering Elite Spellbinder does work! Noice

Out:

1x Whirler Rogue 1x Thran Dynamo 1x Stonehorn Dignitary 1x Sphinx of Uthuun 1x Phyrexian Metamorph 1x Mycosynth Wellspring 1x Meteor Golem 1x Knight-Captain of Eos 1x Clever Impersonator 1x Captain of the Watch 1x Basalt Monolith 1x Blasting Station 1x Kor Cartographer 1x Mind Stone 1x Nevermaker 1x Omen of the Sea

In:

1x Blind Obedience 1x Cloud of Faeries 1x Cloudblazer 1x Sphinx's Revelation 1x Sun Titan 1x Thought Vessel 1x Authority of the consuls 1x Cloudshift 1x Ghostly flicker 1x Soulherder 1x Rishadan cutpurse 1x Rishadan footpad 1x Prismatic lens 1x Hierophant’s chalice 1x Azor’s elocutors 1x Access tunnel

Hierophant's Chalice is a great new addition to possible wipe the table with Strionic Resonator combo going.

Azor's Elocutors is a possible alternative win condition. It was between this and Approach of the Second Sun , but I feel like I’m going to give this a whirl and see how it goes.

Rishadan Cutpurse and Rishadan Footpad are two I’ve been wanting to try for a while but haven’t had in my collection. Was able to pick them up and curious to see the look on my playgroup’s faces when these guys get going with Brago...haha good times..amIright??..well for me at least.

Cloud of Faeries was added for a cheaper alternative Peregrine Drake / Palinchron to go along side both Brago and Deadeye Navigator .

Cloudshift , Ghostly Flicker and Soulherder were added in case something happens to Brago or for more ways to abuse or ETBs.

Cloudblazer and Sphinx's Revelation for some more card draw.

Sun Titan for recursion.

Very eager to be able to try out Access Tunnel if this cards going to shine, Brago’s the perfect target to show its true potential.

Consider running Ephemerate over Cloudshift . It’s just as cheap (both cmc and $-wise) and Rebound gives you added value the following turn.

A Cloudshift that comes back to your hand with some angel ETB effects could be fun Angel of Renewal Angel of the Dawn or even Subjugator Angel + Sunblast Angel .

I would heartily NOT recommend Armageddon . You can check out the thread in the Forum on MLD (mass land destruction) from this week. It is NOT generally considered polite in casual circles, and generally frowned upon overall. Social Contract and LD Discussion

As to the Planeswalker question, looking at the options, I would front the extra money and buy Sorin Markov , as he fits well here. The others don't seem like they would add a lot of value. Overall, though, I usually don't run Planeswalkers. I have a few here and there that I like in certain decks, but overall, I find they aren't really worth it to me. They just put a target on my head, and unless they significantly advance my strategy, they're not worth the slot. Now I have a deck that does some Druid tribal, and Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury is awesome. I love Nissa Revane in an elf tribal deck. I like Teyo, the Shieldmage because he's a cheap option for personal hexproof, which can be very annoying. But overall, a Planeswalker is optional unless it really helps you.

Sunblast Angel and Blinding Light is a fun combo, but you need to be running multiple copies of each, and possibly some blink, to actually make it work. I had a deck that abused that, running Astral Slide , Rune of Protection: White et al, Auramancer , Momentary Blink , Cloudshift , Sunblast Angel , Subjugator Angel , Blinding Light , and Resolute Archangel . Yes, I am awful. It eventually became Hoofprints through the Galaxy, but that didn't last long, as all my friends hated playing against it. Basically, I just stopped them from attacking me by preventing damage from their sources until I could start dropping my big angels and swing for the kill. Still trying to come up with a deck for Hoofprints of the Stag that doesn't piss everyone off. Also, Sunblast Angel won't work if you're running Hushwing Gryff , FYI.

When a card changes from one zone to another it is a new game object with no relation to it's previous existence. The game object that triggered Lifeline is a different game object than the one that entered the graveyard as a result of the token dying, despite being represented by the same physical card.

This interaction is closely related to how you can Cloudshift a creature to dodge Murder .

Ah another fan of Happily Ever After !

Flicker effects also really work with your commander, things like Cloudshift , Soulherder , Thassa, Deep-Dwelling . Flicker of Fate in particular, as you can activate Happily Ever After again if it's on the field

I see you run a lot of cards that are multiple types! Another good one would be Baleful Strix . And really any of the multicolored gods from Theros would work, as they're hard to interact with once they hit the board. Since your primary goal is Happily Ever After with a fall back of control Zur the Enchanter could fit your bill. You have a few other targets in your current build for it as well, with a weird fun one being Klothys, God of Destiny .
