Talisman of Progress Discussion

Since you aren't running a single creature, Proteus Staff will quite literally let you stack your entire deck in the order you choose.
I'd also suggest replacing Thran Dynamo, Gilded Lotus, and Chromatic Lantern. A good rule of thumb in Narset is 2 drop or less mana rocks (3 drop is ok if it adds more than 1 mana like Basalt Monolith, Coalition Relic, or Worn Powerstone). I'd personally recommend Talisman of Creativity, Talisman of Conviction, and Talisman of Progress.
Feel free to check out my list for inspiration. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Narset, American Beauty

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!

This looks fun!
Have you considered Zombie Apocalypse for a mass reanimation/pseudo-wrath combination?
Also, with the reprints in the new Commander decks, the talismans might be a good option to replace the diamonds you have. Talisman of Dominance, Talisman of Hierarchy? The Talisman of Progress might still be a bit pricey, but it's not as necessary with a deck so heavily .

Hey, looking at your list I have a bunch of opinions. I'mma drop those for later reference. This comment will be a mess, I'm sorry, I'm not gonna write a cohesive essay with a proper layout.
Vryn Wingmare : taxing yes, but also taxes like 70% of your spells which I just can't see being worth it. At that stage, maybe run Sphere of Resistance . At least that hurts opposing creature decks too.
I don't love cards like Ghostly Prison because even though it does stop a bunch of random damage and everything it still won't stop the Voltron coming your way if they want to. On top of that your Magus of the Tabernacle will be an issue with your high creature count. So I'd consider getting rid of Baird, Steward of Argive and friends.
You only have three boardwipes, you're better off running more of those than pillowfort effects in my opinion. Consider Cleansing Nova , Rout , Time Wipe , Divine Reckoning . I like the last two a lot for this deck. Also where's your Cyclonic Rift do you not have more copies?
I'm very double on Isperia, Supreme Judge as a card. It's only 4 mana here which might make it good enough, but you're relying on opponents doing something which is usually not where you want to be. Mangara, the Diplomat in contrast, at least has muliple triggered abilities which does get triggered a lot, although with your taxing probably still a bad include, especially for it's $ cost. In the same wake I think Fatespinner , even though annoying for sure, gives opponents more options than you would like.
Nitpick, but Brainstorm becomes considerably worse if you don't have a bunch of fetches or other shuffle effects. Same goes for Mox Opal and your low artifact count. Though that one might still be good enough, albeit a little inconsistent with the current artifact count.
For counterspells, consider Memory Lapse or maybe even Essence Scatter or False Summoning . Also get Swan Song back in, a 1 mana counterspell that doesn't have a pay x out is probably still worth it's spot. Maaaybe on a super tight 100, but it's not like you're at that stage right now. And get rid of Render Silent three mana isn't worth it for the added silence in my opinion. Just keep the cheapest counterspells so you yourself can be more efficient with your own mana.
For ramp: Your commander is 4 mana, and getting him out is really good for you. Your ramp, for this reason, should be cmc 2 and below if possible. On top of that, due to Augustin's cost reducing abilities, you prefer your ramp to generate colored mana. So imo get rid of Azorius Locket and Azorius Cluestone . Instead look towards Coldsteel Heart and Talisman of Progress , maybe even a Sapphire Medallion , Pearl Medallion , Wayfarer's Bauble , Knight of the White Orchid . Or maybe Mind Stone , Walking Atlas , Everflowing Chalice . Maybe don't fix colors but at least curve out augustin. Finally please at least play Commander's Sphere over the Cluestone .
Also, please for the sake of our group, play an additional wincon. Right now you have Expropriate , Approach of the Second Sun and Smothering Tithe + Stasis lock. I know control decks don't traditionally run too many wincons, but keeping a lock on the board long enough is difficult and we won't usually feel like sitting through you trying to contain us for that long. Also where's Dramatic Reversal to go with your Isochron Scepter ?

I'm excited to see this in action. I know your looking for cut recommendations, but I think you first require more ramp. Consider Arcane Signet , Mind Stone , Everflowing Chalice , Talisman of Creativity , Talisman of Conviction , Prismatic Lens , and the signet cycle (Azorious, Izzet, Boros). Talisman of Progress and Fellwar Stone aren't as budget friendly, but are good. I heard Sol Ring is good. I'd add a total of 7-10 for your colors.

Hi, I would recommend taking out Marble Diamond and Sky Diamond in favour of Fellwar Stone , Thought Vessel or a Talisman of Progress . When Brago triggers he will return your mana rocks untapped so any rocks that enter tapped are nonbos with this. Otherwise great list!
