Creature — Elemental Otter
When Eon Frolicker enters the battlefield, if you cast it, target opponent takes an extra turn after this one. Until your next turn, you and planeswalkers you control gain protection from that player.
(You and planeswalkers you control can't be targeted, dealt damage, or enchanted by anything controlled by that player.)

Idoneity on Brago, Budget Eternal

I haven't delved upon the blink strategy myself for quite some time, though I may be of aid.
There is a budget constraint, wherethrough I shall keep all of my suggestions under two dollars.
So this should go in nearly every deck, and this one seems perfect, and— (okay I'm done jesting).
Upon actual suggestions are a couple categories worth bolstering.
Some flickering and blinking:
Yorion can do quite a bit, and it begins looping with effects such as Charming Prince. Ephemerate is an overperformer whiles Ghostly Flicker, though more to cast, gets the job done. Combined with a counterspell in the graveyard, it can be a soft-lock with Archaeomancer (run that, too). Flickerwisp is just potent. Soulherder is oft the very best card to resolve.
A multitude of card draw:
Arcanist's Owl just keeps digging. Augur of Bolas could be fun. Barrin, Tolarian Archmage is able to bounce your own utility creatures or pester the opponent's board. Elsewhere Flask does its job. Wall of Omens draws many cards and serves as defense for those pesky aggro decks. Champion of Wits loots through the deck until life's end. Fblthp, the Lost is just greater. Golden Egg cycles and draws more cards.
Some removal effects:
Angel of Finality is an efficient flyer with a relevant trigger. Every deck needs graveyard hate! Dream Eater goes through a lot of cards and bounces important targets. Elspeth Conquers Death is as powerful here as it is in Standard. Leonin Relic-Warder serves a similar purpose. Frost Titan locks down important threats.
Snow basics would be a nice addition for Arcum's Astrolabe. It cycles, fixes, and is banned in Modern so you know it's powerful.
And some cards that don't really fit in tother categories:
Angel of Serenity deals with threats and can recur creatures from your own graveyard. Angelic Chorus gains far too much life for the opponent's comfort. Annex is nice, for you can switch it around as better lands come into play. Nevermore can keep changing card names to prevent anyone from casting their commanders.
Fall of the Thran is really mean and I love it.
Now for a few non-budget options:
Cavalier of Gales is an absolute power house, Ephara draws a meiny of cards, and Solemn Simulacrum offers a lot of advantage.
Just on one to note, Conjurer's Closet is going to be reprinted in Double Masters, thus it may drop to within budget.
There are quite a few things I would recommend cutting.
AEther Adept is lacking, Archaeomender doesn't seem to be retrieving much of worth, Archon of the Triumvirate is overcosted, Aven Surveyor is as well, Artisan of Kozilek triggers off of cast and is thus useless to blink, Your artifact tutors do not search for much of relevance, Subjugator Angel is a worse Tempest Caller, Hoverguard Sweeper is EIGHT MANA (what?!), Dispel is too narrow, and Aether Tunnel is lacking in power.
Let me drive this one in. Eon Frolicker just loses you the game. Giving someone a turn is ceding far too much time for them to gather resources and defenses. The "protection from that player" really doesn't do that much.
I suppose that is to be all from me. Happy blinking!
multimedia on Kalamax Almost Precon

Hey, you're welcome. Ravenous Gigantotherium is the worst card in the precon and is the easiest cut to make to add Ral, Storm Conduit.
Melek, Izzet Paragon and Swarm Intelligence are the best high CMC cards in the precon. Wort, the Raidmother is also good because of conspire especially with Young Pyromancer's red Elementals with red instants such as Comet Storm. Conspire is also a way to tap Kalamax, but a reason to not play Wort is because conspire doesn't work with mono blue cards. Blue instants and Drakes/Birds don't work with conspire and they're some of the strongest cards with Kalamax. The other 6+ CMC cards could be on the chopping block.
The avg. CMC of the precon is high at 3.6 therefore some cuts to consider would be to reduce this number. An example of a cut is Djinn Illuminatus for Springleaf Drum (cut a 7 CMC card for a 1 CMC card). The precon has a lot of creatures which is understandable since new players like to play with creatures. In my opinion Kalamax is better with a spellslinger theme which means less creatures and more instant/sorceries.
With spellslinger the low amount of creatures you want to play should provide repeatable draw or other repeatable value when you cast an instant or sorcery since these effects help Kalamax and have good interaction with him. Eon Frolicker and Nascent Metamorph should be on the chopping block.
Would you like more help with making changes?
