Duplicant is a great removal tool - exiling creatures in mono-blue is strong
Meteor Golem offers another removal tool as needed
Glen Elendra Archmage is a good counter tool, that is good with flicker effects but isn't dependent on them
Orvar, the All-Form lets you clone flicker targets from instants
Nephalia Smuggler acts a backup flicker effect
Voracious Greatshark is a decent countermagic effect
Tempest Caller can lock out a dangerous opponent without needing to target specific creatures
Shipwreck Dowser is another return instant effect
and finally, Overtaker becomes downright abusive if you stack the EoT triggers - you take creature's permanently

A cool thing about this partner pair is that if Sakashima copies Kodama, you can replay a creature like AEthersnipe endlessly by bouncing itself to hand and alternating between the general's triggers to replay it (bypassing the "if it wasn't put onto the battlefield with this ability" restriction since it was the other general's ability that replayed it). In this example, you would also put all permanents costing 6 or less from your hand into play using the other kodama trigger. Toss in something like Garruk's Packleader and you'll be drawing and playing your entire deck.
You might like these too: Elemental Bond, Garruk's Uprising, Soul of the Harvest, Angler Drake, AEther Adept, Man-o'-War, Mist Raven, Separatist Voidmage, Aven Surveyor, Kiri-Onna, Voidwielder, Hoverguard Sweepers, Altar of the Brood, Galecaster Colossus (in the above-mentioned combo, tap a bounce wizard before returning itself. this way the colossus can bounce all your opps' nonland permanents)

nice idea. +1 from me.
If have some suggestions:
- Iron Maiden is actual a metal band and with a lot of card draw in EDH it's also relevant.
- Man-o'-War is actual a metal band but is probably not good enough for the deck
- Grave Titan is actual a metal band and is goog in beating faces
- Soul Shatter sounds good and fit the game plan
- Rocky Tar Pit maybe
- Skinrender sounds pretty metal

I like the decks theme of tokens and the life gain sub-theme. In terms of protection and removal, I would point you to my own Brago deck.
He is more of a control deck (or at least, tries to be) until I can get my little engines online to go for the combo win.
Venser, Shaper Savant, Man-o'-War and Exclusion Mage and some neat creatures that work like the Reflector Mage that you already run. Venser can also be used to bounce any other permanent, which includes lands, if you want to be that guy!
Venser is also a beautiful addition, as it can also put spells back into players hands when it enters. This allows you to stop the uncounterable spells, along with Narset's Reversal.
I hope there are some cards in my list that you may consider adding to your own for more protection. You have a couple in your list that I will be considering for mine. +1 for another fellow Brago player!!

This is a minor inconvenience, but Man-o'-War can't be searched through Quick Add in the Deck Builder. I guess it's a matter of short words and the hyphens?

Wild Wanderer seems somewhat weak. If you're really intent on having a creature with that effect in addition to the Farhaven Elf already present in your list, I'd recommend Nissa, Vastwood Seer Flip. Yes, they can both be cascaded into by Maelstrom Wanderer, if that's the manner in which you're aiming to utilize them, though that wouldn't appear to be the case, and yes, Nissa only grabs basic Forests as opposed to any manner of basic, yet that seems to be the basic land you're running the most of in the first place. In my opinion, Nissa's a pretty significant upgrade compared to Wild Wanderer. Another suggestion for a card with which one could potentially replace Wild Wanderer, though it doesn't ramp you (though who still wants to be ramping one pip with an otherwise low-impact four drop anyway?) would be Man-o'-War.

- I still think Mirrormade for Homarid Spawning Bed is a good swap.
- I'm not convinced that removing Azami, Lady of Scrolls is the best choice for a swap. I do have limited wizards now, but with her and Braids, I'm looking at up to 3 cards (counting my draw step) during my turn (although I'd use the tap ability on an opponent's end step). Now I'm thinking a better swap would be either Reef Worm or Man-o'-War.
- I was also looking at adding Voracious Greatshark and/or Sea-Dasher Octopus.

carpecanum Thanks for the excellent suggestions. I'm thinking about removing Man-o'-War OR Azami, Lady of Scrolls for Deepchannel Mentor and then replacing Mirrormade with Homarid Spawning Bed. Thoughts?
