Your Brogo list looks like a good start. In my opinion the biggest thing that could improve your list is to run more mana rocks. Make sure the ones you run come in untapped as you can then blink them with Brogo for extra value to play more spells on second main or hold up interaction for opponents turns.
I hope that helps with your build. Good luck!

@ Chaotic_Justice Thanks for your suggestions and giving my list an upvote. I appreciate you taking the time to check out my list.
Emancipation Angel is good in more casual lists then mine. The 3 CMC is more problematic here. I am already running Kor Skyfisher and Glint Hawk. If I decide I need another of these effects I will add in Aviary Mechanic (2 CMC). However the better combos in the list use the graveyard and include Junk Diver, Myr Retriever, Scrap Trawler, and Workshop Assistant. The 3 CMC cost here matter less as all the pieces are artifacts and trigger Teshar's ability.
Aetherflux Reservoir used to be in the list before it became more competitive. Yes Walking Ballista is the go to win con but Altar of Dementia, Blasting Station, and Grinding Station also win the game if Walking Ballista is exiled. The problem with Aetherflux Reservoir is it doesn't do much except act as a way to win. All the other ways I mentioned are sac outlets when unable to win on the spot / mill you into the win. If I was to add another win con to the deck I would add Altar of the Brood (also used to be in the deck) as 1 CMC is more likely to be useful in triggering Teshar.
Rings of Brighthearth is tempting. I am very familiar with the combos around it. Used to run Arcum Dagsson cEDH before the Paradox Engine banning. But this list for Teshar is so tight I'm unsure of if there is a place for it here.
The card I have been considering is Voltaic Key / Manifold Key for the value they can get with Grim Monolith, Basalt Monolith, and Mana Vault. Of course I would also love to add Lion's Eye Diamond. If only my budget allowed for it.

Hey Privian, thanks for commenting. You can definitely reduce the cost of the deck by swapping out the cards you listed. Here are my suggestions for replacements:
Ravages of War is identical to Armageddon, I just happen to have a copy of Ravages I picked up years ago.

Thanks for the question arcarceus. I wouldn't spring for a The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale given the extremely high creature count of our own deck. I typically only play this deck in cEDH or cEDH-adjacent pods and usually find that my own creature count is much higher than my opponents. I do love this type of plan for artifacts, and my low count of artifacts has enabled Kataki, War's Wage to be extremely powerful against the high artifact count of many cEDH decks.
I haven't spared much expense when it comes to this deck, but Living Plane over Nature's Revolt comes to mind immediately. I'm personally not a fan of artifact driven fast mana for reasons unrelated to the power of the strategy, but I certainly believe that the deck would be more powerful with its inclusion. Mana Vault is already included due to its synergy with Derevi, and Grim Monolith would be a similarly powerful inclusion. Additional rocks to include would be Mana Crypt, Mox Diamond, and Chrome Mox. If those were added you'd have to take out a couple pieces of artifact hate (the aforementioned Kataki, Null Rod), but I think you'd speed up your average first or second turns which is where this deck can really struggle against your typical cEDH deck.

Hey Mark3sie, I have a few suggestions. I don’t run Edgar, but I do run Kaalia of the Vast, so I have experience with mardu colors. I am making suggestions regardless of budget since I don’t see the budget tag.
Deflecting Swat is awesome as well and has saved me many times.
Hope this helps! :)

Ok, here because of you Cyclonic Rift vs. Omniscience post. Now, first off, why no extra combat spells?
Now, on to suggestions. I'll try to break it down by category and keep things budget friendly.
Ramp: Run LOTS more. Pentad Prism is the only 2 drop mana rock that'll net +2 different colored mana in the same turn (albeit, once). Fellwar Stone , Worn Powerstone , Coalition Relic , and Basalt Monolith are worth running also. Crystal Vein is handy in a pinch as well.
Defense: Smoke is worth its weight in gold here and 100% deserves a spot.
Feel free to check out my list for ideas (especially for extra combats). Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Narset, American Beauty

Sephorai Hey there! At the beginning of the pandemic I sort of sold out of my collection, in the middle of some serious setbacks currently but I'm inching toward recreating this list. Top dollar cards i'm missing include both Ulamogs (80$ a piece), a Mana Vault(120$), and all the planeswalkers except for Great Creator.
My Grim Monolith is gone as well, and I don't intend to acquire a new one. This deck will definitely take advantage of huge improvements though! Diamond Lion is PERFECT for this deck, and obviously this one will require a Jeweled Lotus. Unfortunately at the moment i'm kinda building back from scratch. I basically had only a single Mana Crypt and a dream once in store play began again. I'll get there soon!

A comp edh deck usually looks like that:
avg cmc close to 2 at least or below (some commanders may be a bit higher)
like 30+ instants to keep opponents from comboing or to secure your own combo
like every good tutor to get your combos consistently
So basically cEDH is all about playing the best and most efficient cards. You just go for a quick combo win and try to tutor it up, stop opponents from comboing and assemble your own combo. Every card that doesn’t do anything of that doesn’t belong in a cEDH list. Tribals usually don’t support that very good unless you maybe go with elves. And your commander should be part of a winning combo like a food chain combo, or draw into your combo with infinite mana or another easy loop, like Urza or thrasios for example.
I assume that you haven’t seen much cEDH decks so far. Maybe you should watch some lists or games first. CEDH decks tend to be very expensive. Even Godo which is really cheap for cEDH tends to be around 3k. Multicolor decks are not uncommon to be 6-10k. Could be a waste of money if you don’t like cEDH in the end. It’s not everyone’s cup of tea, I don’t like it very much for example. I prefer jankier games up to high power
