Ok here is my take on the budget side. TLDR: Land total and Ramp increased. A lot of subpar removal taken out, and better ones put in. Some cheaper dragons/shapeshifters added to smooth out curve and provide cheap dragon drops for commander ability. Most importantly is added some value for getting extra dragons from cards, either by creating tokens or playing them for free from hand/deck. Added in 3 additional wincons similar to Terror of the Peaks to make it easier to win just by populating board and swinging in. Note that the wincons also can serve as creature removal, which is why so many of the outs are instant/sorcery removals
In: Haven of the Spirit Dragon (creature recursion), 3 Mountain (31 lands is not enough - will miss land drops too often and its vital that the commander come down ASAP - nick loses too many times by not getting threats out in time)
In: Cinderclasm (better than blazing volley), Shenanigans (reusable artifact destruction, combos with Liquimetal Torgue), Chaos Warp, Mizzium Mortars (one sided boardwipe)
In: Gadrak, the Crown-Scourge, Taurean Mauler, Dragonkin Berserker, Dragonmaster Outcast, Molten Echoes, Minion of the Mighty, Sunbird's Invocation

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
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.

okay firstly add a Mountain to your land base, it allows you to get a red source out of your deck with Evolving Wilds and Terramorphic Expanse cut a swamp for it because your land count is perfectly fine for an aggro deck now let's get to the meat of the feast I would cut Zombify for Tortured Existence you only get a mana discount for 8 of the cards in your deck and the repeatability is much better. Sign in Blood should be replaced with Read the Bones digs deeper for 1 more mana. cut Hierophant's Chalice for Heraldic Banner. cut Sorin, Vampire Lord for Ob Nixilis Reignited, and if you cut that one you should cut Sorin's Guide which should be replaced with Cordial Vampire. if you can swing it Captivating Vampire is very good and I can guarantee it will make the deck much better. Bladebrand out for Champion of Dusk super strong and could help you win the game. cut Vampire Neonate for Indulgent Aristocrat. Breaking Point out for Underworld Connections repeatable card advantage. Ill-Gotten Inheritance out for Dark Tutelage again repeatable card draw. Revenge of Ravens out for Bad Moon. and lastly Tribute to Hunger out for Intangible Virtue.
now these are all suggestions and they are just a start, and I tried to keep all the cards around a buck or less besides Captivating Vampire

Always glad seeing other Brago players, check out my Brago, the Blink King deck if you want to compare or have some ideas though I suspect your deck is way more better and competive than what the site tells me about mine xD But truth to be told, I've build my deck around cards I find good or fun for the deck and some azorius good stuff. Also thanks to your deck I realized how good Hierophant's Chalice would be in my deck, currently I have Meteorite in there which I could replace with the Chalice.
multimedia on Brago - Where did my cards go?

Hey, you're welcome.
Consider expanding on your win conditions with Brago?
Strionic Resonator is a combo with Brago; targeting Brago's blink trigger on the stack and copying it gives you unlimited blink. You can blink Resonator with Brago which untaps it. You also need a combination of mana rocks ( Sol Ring , Monolith, etc.) or ways to untap lands ( Cloud of Faeries or Drake). These need to be blinked to untap mana rocks or lands to make at least to continually copy Brago's blink trigger with Resonator. Add Reality Acid or Spine of Ish Sah to this combo to destroy all your opponents permanents. Add Whirler Rogue to make unlimited Thopter tokens on your turn. Add Hierophant's Chalice as an real win condition to make each opponent, one at a time, lose all life and you gain as much life.
You don't have to use the Resonator and Brago combo as a win condition it can just be used to generate a ton of value on your turn since you can blink so many different nonland permanents. You break the combo by not copying Brago's blink trigger with Resonator. Tribute Mage has many artifacts to tutor for which is helpful with blink. Best of all it can get Strionic Resonator , but also Swiftfoot Boots , Prism, a Wellspring, etc.

If you need help with knowing how much/what ramp to use, you might want to check out https://www.mtggoldfish.com/articles/brewer-s-minute-ramp-math
I am not an expert in mono, but for you I recommend adding:
Mana Crypt pricey but spicey
Charcoal Diamond goes so well with Sol Ring
Everflowing Chalice and Astral Cornucopia - especially if you somehow get more proliferate
Ashnod's Altar and Phyrexian Altar are good if you want double-down on sacrificing your own creatures.
Plague Myr infect
Burnished Hart nice
Myriad Landscape can go in almost any edh deck
Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx is solid in any one- or two-colour deck
Lake of the Dead has a downside, but you won't care when you're using it (trust me)
Deserted Temple , Vesuva , Candelabra of Tawnos and Thespian's Stage to double-down on Cabal Coffers.
Petrified Field to protect valuable lands.
Expedition Map and/or Wayfarer's Bauble to tutor itfor all your powerful lands.
I'm not sure how I feel about Temple of the False God , but it is an EDH classic.
Other mono ramp
I ended up finding so many mono ramp cards I thought I might as well make a more full list.
Solemn Simulacrum is a good catch-all
Magus of the Coffers is slow, but might be worth it. Crypt Ghast is a better version.
Pawn of Ulamog and Sifter of Skulls are good in any deck that sacrifices often
Nirkana Revenant is good in the right deck
Bog Witch is kind of weird, but has fringe uses
I haven't thought hard, but you might be able to do some flicker shenanigans with Priest of Gix
Priest of Yawgmoth and Soldevi Adnate work if you hate your own stuff
Leaden Myr , Hedron Crawler , Manakin , Scuttlemutt , Alloy Myr , Opaline Unicorn , Palladium Myr are usually worse than rocks, but maybe you want?
Worst case, an edh deck can always load up on rocks. These are some of the best ones for mono black
Sol Ring every edh deck should include this
Star Compass , Fellwar Stone , Fractured Powerstone , Mind Stone all fill similar voids
Thran Dynamo , Ur-Golem's Eye , Worn Powerstone , Gilded Lotus , Hedron Archive , Sisay's Ring
Pillar of Origins for tribal decks
Consider Pentad Prism , Kyren Toy , or Coalition Relic for proliferate
In most games, these do the same thing: Commander's Sphere , Cryptolith Fragment Flip, Cultivator's Caravan , Darksteel Ingot , Hierophant's Chalice , Honor-Worn Shaku , Mana Prism , Manalith , Orazca Relic , Phyrexian Totem , Powerstone Shard , Pristine Talisman , Seer's Lantern , Serum Powder , Skull of Ramos , Sol Grail , Spectral Searchlight , Vessel of Endless Rest , Victory Chimes , and Chromatic Lantern
Thought Vessel if you fill your hand
Chrome Mox is usually worth the card disadvantage
Lotus Bloom , Mana Vault , Basalt Monolith , Grim Monolith , and Lotus Petal for explosive potential
Mox Amber if you usually have your commander/a legendary thing out
Mox Diamond if lands in your graveyard is a good thing
Mox Opal if you have 2+ extra artifacts
Black Market is good if you tend to sacrifice/kill a lot of creatures
Caged Sun , Doubling Cube , and Gauntlet of Power are fair if you want to reach that high mana
Liliana of the Dark Realms is nice with proliferate, and makes sure you don't miss land drops in the mid/late-game
Sword of the Animist is best with one-mana creatures, and if you attack often, but might be justified even if not
Jet Medallion and Heartless Summoning do a lot of work if you play many cards in a turn
Carnival of Souls is fun with some creature-based combos
Bubbling Muck for explosive/combo turns
Dark Ritual for getting a turn 2 Crypt Ghast , etc.
Sacrifice and Culling the Weak for sacrificing. They go nicely with Songs of the Damned
Spoils of Evil for lategame combos
Rain of Filth must be used with caution
Crypt of Agadeem works, but only if you consistently have 4+ creatures in the graveyard
Phyrexian Tower eats your creatures
Cabal Coffers is a staple
It's porbably unnessecary, but if you end up with few basic swamps, consider Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth to supplement your Cabal Coffers .
Cabal Stronghold is great if you can't afford many nonbasics, and might be good enough besides.
ActionMan on W/B Vamps, Arvad the Cursed
4 years ago
Vraska's Contempt is a must. Instant, so you can react to opponent movements; can target Planeswalkers, not many cards can do that in the enviroment right now.
Black/White mana, has not a solid base right now. I would include Isolated Chapel, and change Hierophant's Chalice with Chromatic Lantern. Your deck does not have a lot of double color spells, so this will be only relevant if you find yourself having problem with fixing the mana.
If your plan is to shift to Vampires Legion Lieutenant, Legion's Landing, Champion of Dusk and Radiant Destiny should be right choices. Adding Vanquisher's Banner is for late, and with no mana acceleration could be a little heavy, but the card draw power is quite good in a tribal deck. Blood Operative is good against the new mechanic Jump-start, but you need more cards with surveil for it to work. Twilight Prophet and Sanctum Seeker are pretty strong too. I feel as you have little removal, Cast Down and Price of Fame are both pretty solid, the later being specially good in a format with a constant legendary treat.
Consider taking outYargle, Glutton of Urborg 5 manas, no vampire, no tramble or other evasion. Arvad the Cursed You don't have a lot of legendary creatures, 5 manas for a 3/3 with no evasion, you can find better things.Encampment Keeper and Walking Corpse must go if you want to take the tribal approach. I would changeCobbled Wings for Captain's Hook, it can do a lot of damage, and is pretty good in creatures with lifelink. Queen's Commission might be nice too.
Good Luck. P.S.:Sorry for my bad english.
