Hello, you deck looks really nice. I have some suggestions of cards for you to think about:

First, as mentioned before Leyline of the Void, Anguished Unmaking, Despark are good cards to consider, and I also think you should lose the Lingering Souls for something more useful to you. For the same 3 mana you could drop Phyrexian Arena, Grim Tutor, Crypt Incursion, a third Wrath of God or you could lower your curve and play Surgical Extraction, Extirpate, Smallpox, Inquisition of Kozilek, Castigate, Dark Confidant

Secondly I would like to recommend some artifact and enchantment removal, mostly for sideboard, since you are within the color range of dealing with those easily: Revoke Existence, Fragmentize, Heliod's Intervention, Demystify

Next I have some cards that protect you from Discard and Burn decks: Leyline of Sanctity, Witchbane Orb, Teyo, the Shieldmage or The Wanderer

Lastly, if you’re looking for more finishers, I’d also lose Sorin, Grim Nemesis for things like Necromancer's Covenant, Gideon of the Trials or a fourth Fall of the Thran and a Kaya, Orzhov Usurper

Wow, Urge to Feed is definitely getting added! I'll swap out Sorin, Grim Nemesis for Sorin, Lord of Innistrad as I was only using Grim Nemesis for his ultimate, really. Not a good idea. Thanks for the recommendations, once I do my edits I'll go check out your deck, I like the sound of it.

It's true that Spark Double would give you another use of a planeswalker's ability but if your goal is to make tokens of it, it still runs into the same problem. Turning all your tokens into a copy of Spark Double means that all of the tokens are 0/0 illusions that die as state based actions. But a wincon consisting of a huge planeswalker army is still well within reach!

We probably all know about Jace, Cunning Castaway's interaction with Doubling Season. If he ults with Doubling Season on the board, he makes two copies of himself each of who can do it again. You end up with infinite Jaces. If you have Oath of Gideon or Oath of Teferi/The Chain Veil on the field, they will either have enough loyalty to create 2/2 creatures (in the case of the former) or will be ready to create 2/2 creatures next turn (in the case of the latter.) Infinite tokens are pretty decent for our pal, Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer dontcha think? But who wants to win with creatures attacking anyways? If we wanted that we just play Selesnya or something. Why not throw in another card to win in a truly glorious fashion? A card that you already run in your deck! Nicol Bolas, Dragon-God on the field with the two aforementioned cards (Jace and Doubling Season) allows you to make infinite Nicol Bolas! If you have Oath of Teferi out, you can +1 them all at once, exiling everything on the opponent's battlefields and from in the opponent's hands. Come to think of it, that dragon dunce should've just done this during War of the Spark... but I digress. I think that those might be some fun combos for you to look into! Also it's important to remember that Bolas doesn't just have to use his own +1. That wins the game, sure, but if you wanna be flashy, he can use the loyalty abilities of any other walker you have out! Draw your library and drain everyone with Sorin, Grim Nemesis, dragonbomb the shit out of everyone with Ugin, the Spirit Dragon, gain infinite life with Ajani, Strength of the Pride, same turn token storm with Chandras One and Two, empty hands with Davriel, Rogue Shadowmage or Karn Liberated, gain infinite mana with Teferi, Temporal Archmage or Domri, Anarch of Bolas and if you really want to stick to the big, bad dragon then literally every single Bolas walker wins the game on the spot. Now that's a flashy superfriends pop off!

You can even cheat out pieces of the combo with cards like Deploy the Gatewatch, Academy Rector, Arena Rector and my personal favorite Planebound Accomplice.

I hope you dig this path, I know the point was to do some Brudiclad shenanigans to go infinite but I'll be damned if this isn't a close second on the coolness scale!

Daveslab2022 on Jank Control?

Lurrus seems incredibly fun- but not necessarily for a control deck. Although Orzhov control, while lacking in counter spells, has basically everything else you need.

It’s got board wipes, premium removal, card advantage, and a vast assortment of finishers.

If you did go that route I would play a lot cheap permanents like Dark Confidant and Stitcher's Supplier for card advantage, Bitterblossom for lots of blockers. Notreally any aggressive cards. You finishers being walkers like Elspeth, Sun's Champion and Sorin, Grim Nemesis.
