Kogarashi on Two upkeep triggers, which one ...

Both cards trigger simultaneously. When they do, the active player (your opponent) puts their triggers on the stack first ( Twilight Prophet ), then each other player puts any triggers they control on the stack in turn order ( Gate to the AEther ). This means your Gate trigger will resolve before your opponent's Prophet trigger.

"603.3a A triggered ability is controlled by the player who controlled its source at the time it triggered, unless it’s a delayed triggered ability. To determine the controller of a delayed triggered ability, see rules 603.7d–f."

I have Gate to the AEther in play, and my opponent has Twilight Prophet in play. On my opponent's upkeep, which card triggers first?

You may play around Kynaios and Tiro of Meletis 's ability. Tatyova, Benthic Druid will give you extra card draw whenever you get a land on the field. Reliquary Tower is cheap now, and works wonders. You surely will have 5 lands on turn 4, so Temple of the False God is really good.

You should also consider Azorius Chancery , Boros Garrison , Gruul Turf , Selesnya Sanctuary , Simic Growth Chamber , Izzet Boilerworks . You play your untapped land for the turn normally, then play one of those with K&T's ability. You get ahead of mana since these lands tap for 2 mana.

Krosan Verge , Myriad Landscape and Blighted Woodland are good for ramping when you have nothing else to do.

I suggest removing Azorius Guildgate , Blossoming Sands , Boros Guildgate , Gruul Guildgate , Izzet Guildgate , Simic Guildgate , Tranquil Cove , Vivid Grove , Haunted Fengraf and Unstable Frontier for the lands above.

Do you want to see chaos happen? Hive Mind , Knowledge Pool , Thousand-Year Storm , Eye of the Storm , Shared Fate , Gate to the AEther , Possibility Storm , Ruhan of the Fomori , Perplexing Chimera , Dictate of the Twin Gods , Furnace of Rath , Gratuitous Violence , Mind's Dilation , Sunbird's Invocation .

Do you want to make people interact more with you? Fact or Fiction , Steam Augury , Avatar of Slaughter , Goblin Spymaster , the Tempt with Vengeance cycle.

Do you want to give more resources to them? Eladamri's Vineyard , Dictate of Karametra , Zhur-Taa Ancient , Heartbeat of Spring , Heartwood Storyteller , Intellectual Offering , Keeper of Progenitus , Well of Ideas , Rites of Flourishing , Ghirapur Orrery . Zendikar Resurgent and Mirari's Wake .

I have some suggestions, you can run Quicksilver Amulet to cheat creatures from hand or Thran Temporal Gateway , if you up the number of historic permanents. Or even Arcane Artisan for a similar effect.

You can run Gate to the AEther for a similar Braids effect. And some cards that grant flash to creatures, like Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir , to play Braids at the end of opponent turn.

As a finishing touch, you can run Blue reanimator cards like Hour of Eternity , God-Pharaoh's Gift , Argivian Restoration and Body Double , as a subtheme.

imho if you intend to go to this route and you have no intention of going Mayael, then I would add in Azusa, Lost but Seeking , Rites of Flourishing , Collective Voyage , Veteran Explorer , Hypergenesis , Magus of the Vineyard , Ghirapur Orrery , Reality Scramble , Sunbird's Invocation , Selvala's Stampede , Gate to the AEther , etc. to be able to play a lot of these cards without getting mana screwed since you won't always draw Mayael and have an obscenely high avg cmc.

I would look into more cards like Goblin Sharpshooter , Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker , Krenko, Mob Boss , Sylvan Library , Combat Celebrant , Shalai, Voice of Plenty , Selvala, Heart of the Wilds , Angel of Condemnation , Ahn-Crop Champion (and various other exert cards)), Elvish Piper , etc.

You could also definitely go for infinite attack phases with Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker + Combat Celebrant , Hellkite Charger + Savage Ventmaw , Godo, Bandit Warlord , Aurelia, the Warleader , etc.

Honorable Mentions: Vernal Equinox , Possibility Storm (trade cheaper creatures in for your larger ones), Oath of Druids , Yisan, the Wanderer Bard , Champion of Rhonas , Sword of the Animist , Sword of Feast and Famine , Lifecrafter's Bestiary , Feldon of the Third Path , Heartless Hidetsugu , Stonehewer Giant , etc.

Let me know how the list comes along.

@Wurmspiralmaschine14: Your username makes me think of Wurmcoil Engine. (: That aside, Gate to the AEther gives my opponents the first crack at getting cool stuff, and can easily be destroyed/exiled before the order gets back around to me. Timesifter, on the other hand... How did I miss this card during construction?! Holy fuck, that's a strong ability for this deck.

@BlackyMTG: All of those suggestions are great! I can see Teferi's Protection being hilarious cast in response to Aminatou's ult. I hadn't added Yennett or Aminatou's Augury yet because they were spoiled just before the weekend, and I knew I would be too busy to remove cards to make room. xD But I made room now. Thanks for the recommendations!

@Asder: You're absolutely right, and I actually own a copy of him, too! He's in my Ertai deck, but I've been meaning to deconstruct that anyways. I made room for him in here, removing the other Jace for him.
