Search for Azcanta
At the beginning of your upkeep, look at the top card of your library. You may put it into your graveyard. Then if you have seven or more cards in your graveyard, you may transform Search for Azcanta.

Love the deck idea, a few things I noticed.
Most decks I’ve seen that play 3 or more colors only run 1-2 “triome” lands. They are great, but having 4 of Xander's Lounge could slow you down late game when you don’t wanna draw a tapped land.
I’ve seen Memory Deluge used in most UW control decks and it has worked out great for them when it comes to card selection.
Lastly, Collective Brutality may seem rough but its flexibility is what makes it a great sideboard card. Maybe reducing the number of them and placing it in the sideboard will help show their potential.
Hope this helps out! Love the deck idea and hope to see other control decks get some traction.

My top three packs had to have been these:
Pulling Murderous Rider, Nyx Lotus, Liliana, Waker of the Dead, and Bonders' Enclave in quick succession. I had just picked up one of each pack from their respective sets to increase my card pool of recent cards. Granted, these obviously aren't the best cards, but they were all pretty good cards from their home sets and I was happy to see them. They still all have happy homes in some of my best decks.
My favorite pack of all time (and my second most expensive I believe, after the one that gave me Finale of Devastation) was an Ixalan booster pack I bought on a whim to play a silly two-pack draft with my little brother. I ended up pulling a Vraska, Relic Seeker AND a foil Search for Azcanta Flip. By far the most jaw-dropping moment I've ever had in MTG.
Though an honorable mention would have to be the time I pulled an Enter the God-Eternals in draft. I was super hyped about that card from all the Draft YouTube videos I had watched, and I was thrilled to show my brother that I had gotten one of the sickest cards in the set.

bushido_man96 Search for Azcanta Flip was a suggestion from someone at my LGS when I was building the deck I didn't see it often enough to believe it needed to be replaced. Yavimaya Granger is a great addition though, I'm putting it in place of Harrow. You have any suggestions for what I should swap the Search for?

Harrow and Crop Rotation are both great ramp spells, but with Muldrotha's ability to recast creatures from the graveyard, getting ramp on creatures is a better way to go. Yavimaya Granger is a land tutor that also puts itself in the graveyard.
I question why you have included Search for Azcanta Flip. It doesn't seem like it will do all that much for you, especially once it's flipped. There are some much better mill cards you could run in it's place.

Oh hey thereOmniscience_is_life! TBH, I wasn't expecting to get any feedback on my decks, I keep them here more to help me keep track of them, but I appreciate the help.
I had no idea Swan Song was in the format- I definitely need to make room for it somewhere in the main deck or sideboard. However, Miscast and Spell Pierce are both less useful late game- and since I'm looking to drag the game out to turn 10-13 (so I can cast Approach of the Second Sun and still leave mana up) those cards often end up unable to do anything in my hand (especially since I'm playing Settle the Wreckage) whereas Censor can be cycled. I also played around with Essence Scatter but found it to be too narrow, and I have a lot of creature removal anyways. Dovin's Veto absolutely should replace negate though. I had Dovin's Veto in my sideboard but took it out and must've forgotten to replace Negate with it. I do really like Censor being able to counter any type of spell early on is very useful. It can even counter large spells if the opponent taps out.
Oh that's a good idea. The four mana hasn't been an issue, but Thirst for Discovery costing three mana and drawing three cards can help if I'm desperation drawing for some interaction.
I've found three copies of Approach of the Second Sun to be very dangerous lol. Back in Rivals of Ixalan Standard I had too many games with multiple copies stuck in my hand. The thing with Approach is I don't want to have it for a looooong time. The only reason I'm running two is so I can mill over an early copy or if one of them gets countered. There's enough card draw/selection that I will get a copy eventually, and being a control deck I'm more than happy to wait.

I don't know if Censor is a good enough counter to merit being a 3-of, seems like the alt cycling tech isn't enough to make it better than a good ol' Miscast, Swan Song, Essence Scatter, Dovin's Veto, or Spell Pierce. Historic has a LOT of good control magic options!
Since your primary finisher is Approach, I would recommend adding another; the math's been done, if you want to draw roughly one of a card per game then 3 is the number of copies to run.

Hello. I have been studying Blink Brago Control for few weeks and I have to tell that I probably have found my place in MTG - I need to build this deck. The job that you had done is so good.. I'm gonna create my deck based on yours. Why ? Because your deck is IMO lacking some essential cards and OFC an UPDATE. Yep... you really need an update. Im casual player, any feedback is very appreciated. So I encourage everybody who is reading this to a discussion.
card draw / card selection
Rhystic Study - Every blue commander should play this, why don't we try - gives consistent draw to get more cards..
Mystic Remora - more draw..
Esper Sentinel - kinda new card in magic - gets consistent draw
Dig Through Time - Powerful because of delve.
Luminous Broodmoth - Mass removal - even more profit! more blinking!
Soulherder - Every blink deck, please. This enables to get more blinking triggers and payoffs at the same time.
Disallow - extended counterspell...
Trickbind - counter triggers sometimes are gold worth.
Dovin's Veto - One of the most powerful counterspells in magic. Guesss what. It's Azorius colors ;)
Path to Exile - classic
Lightning Greaves - protect commander
Linvala, Shield of Sea Gate - lets sacrifice it anytime we need...
Thran Dynamo - IMO really underappreciated mana base card.
Teferi, Master of Time - Isn't this a must-play in an BW deck now?
Teferi, Hero of Dominaria - Isn't it too much mana?
