Everflowing Chalice Discussion

Here's a good website. https://www.mtggoldfish.com/articles/budget-commander-brago-king-eternal
Copy and past it to check out a budget list. I'd like to mention 2 things. The mana rocks you include should be able to enter untapped. Worn Powerstone won't work, and neither will Everflowing Chalice (it loses its charge counters if you flicker it with Brago). Second, like Oblivion Ring that has an ETB effect and SEPARATE effect to return the card are easily broken with Strionic Resonator . It goes like this.
Brago's ability goes on the stack.
Everything gets flickered. Your O-Ring targets something.
On the stack of the O-Ring target, copy Brago's ability again.
Everything gets flickered. Now the leaves the battlefield effect resolves before the ETB, meaning that its target gets exiled permanently. Imagine that with Parallax Tide or Parallax Wave . It gets nasty. Angel of Serenity anyone?

Strionic Resonator plus mana rocks that produce at least 2 mana together is what makes up Brago's premiere combo. Putting those into the deck, alongside ways to find those cards, will probably improve your deck substantially.
Currently, you have 12 mana rocks, but a good number of them are... less than efficient. Talisman of Progress shouldn't be too expensive and is a straight upgrade to any of your 3+ mana rocks (a rock on turn 2 means Brago by turn 3. 2 mana and less rocks are king because Brago's mana cost is 4). Fellwar Stone , Everflowing Chalice , etc., should all be fairly cheap options in the 2cmc range that, when combined together, let you go infinite with Brago and Resonator. The more expensive rocks, like Chrome Mox , Mana Vault , Grim Monolith , Mana Crypt , and Mox Diamond are helpful but not necessary, so for now stick to the good 2cmc rocks that don't enter tapped.
Once you go nuts with Brago and Resonator, you can use Rishadan Cutpurse to make everyone sac all of their permanents. He's actually just decent on his own, oddly enough, so I'd recommend running it over Resolute Archangel (the best way to not need to gain life is to keep your opponents from having anything). Venser, Shaper Savant is fantastic in and out of the combo because he can return a spell to a player's hand as well (so if someone is trying to cast Obliterate or some big spell like that, you can buy a turn by casting Venser, then keep him from getting the mana to cast it again by blinking him and bouncing the caster's land).
Act of Authority is one of Brago's best cards. The turn you cast it, you can exile two artifacts or enchantments, and then do it each turn thereafter as well. It's pretty handy. It's similar to Reality Acid, which I see you already run. Aura of Silence is perfect for Brago- slow your opponents down, and if they play anything of any value, destroy it.
Of course, having ways to find these cards is invaluable, and the single largest boost you could probably give the deck, dollar for dollar, would be in accessible tutors. Fabricate would find Strionic Resonator or Sol Ring, Enlightened Tutor could find you removal (Reality Acid, Act of Authority, Aura of Silence, etc), your Sol Ring, or Resonator, or a stax piece, more on that later. Mystical Tutor could find the aforementioned tutors, draw, protection, sweepers, etc.. Merchant Scroll would find Mystical Tutor or protection. Reshape could be used to find Resonator or Sol Ring. There are more, but these are a reasonable starting point.
Lastly, the most competitive way to play Brago? Stax. By stax I mean controlling the board using cards like Winter Orb , Static Orb , Stasis . Stasis is absolutely ridiculous in this deck should you assemble any rock that produces blue (cause you swing Brago, blink himself and the blue producing rock, and nobody gets an untap step ever again). Your opponents can eventually find a way out of this by killing Brago, but it can buy some fairly invaluable turns. Cards like Aven Mindcensor , Cursed Totem , etc., can also slow your opponents down or interfere with integral strategies (Sisay and Yisan, for example, have to find a way around Cursed Totem in order to even play lol). This manner of play is absurdly un-fun, though, so if you have a budget group (which it looks like your deck fits into), I wouldn't recommend playing Brago as stax, and just play basic control until you can find your Resonator and win that way.
Hope this helped.

I think your theatrical feline cast is a bit thin and you might want to look over a few potential talents such as Regal Caracal , Adorned Pouncer , Balan, Wandering Knight , Brimaz, King of Oreskos , Jazal Goldmane , Jareth, Leonine Titan , Leonin Abunas , Leonin Shikari , Leonin Warleader , Oreskos Explorer and Raksha Golden Cub to fill out any roles you may have.

If you are seriously looking at making it work in a super budget way, Throne of Geth and Tezzeret's Gambit should be the top end of your deck, while the rest aims to win before vast amounts of mana would have been relevant. This means focussing on one clear strategy- I'd reccomend Shrapnel Blast / Atog / Slag Fiend , but Shriekhorn mill is also an option.

Nimbus Swimmer always feels a little weak to me. I always assess by looking at how a card feels to draw in the first three turns. Drawing a low cost spell later in the game is usually ok, but making sure those first few turns put you in a good spot is essential.
I'm just flicking through the simic stuff since I've tended to only do stuff like Cloudfin Raptor / Experiment One with it. Hydroid Krasis looks promising when the set rotates and it gets cheap, which will let you replace glimmer of genius.
Right now, think what I'd do would be add three Gyre Sage and two thrummingbird, cutting a climb, a hungering, two forests and a swamp. I'd also consider cutting Go for the Throat and running Beast Within instead, since I like the extra versatility with my 2 drop slot already taken/ ramping me to play it.
I'd also look at Everflowing Chalice and Astral Cornucopia while upping the proliferate count- Tezzeret's Gambit does a reasonable impression of Glimmer of Genius in most cases, and getting lots of mana to pump into hydras is good feeling.
Thats my thoughts though, and my deckbuilding is far from perfect. Testing is the most important thing. Hit playtest, draw a few hands, change some things then try again. Its how you get a deck that feels good to play.

There's a lot of really good cards that increase the number of counters that you're not using yet - I think especially cards that double counters like Solidarity of Heroes , Kalonian Hydra and Biogenic Upgrade could be quite deadly. Also anything that lets you proliferate each turn, like Contagion Clasp and Contagion Engine , and maybe Plaguemaw Beast or Throne of Geth . Primal Vigor and Doubling Season double the number of counters coming in, and Increasing Savagery just immediately gives you loads.
For more Kicker spells, a Scryfall search should suffice, but one that stood out to me was Everflowing Chalice , as it's very cheap and helps you ramp.
One weakness I see in this deck is that your commander is pretty easy to remove, and then you lose all those counters! Alpha Authority , Swiftfoot Boots , Champion's Helm or Mask of Avacyn could help you protect him.
