Traveler's Cloak Discussion

I’ve also played Brago and there are 2 very good budget things you can do with this deck. 1, ramp. 2, draw. Brago basically doubles your mana from mana rocks, so if you have a lot of mana and a lot of draw, that is powerful. That’s why Rhystic Study and Smothering Tithe cost so much.
Let’s start with ramp. He can blink mana rocks so your mana rocks need to enter untapped. No Fieldmist Borderpost effects. Instead, you have Mana Geode , Darksteel Ingot , Prismatic Lens , Hedron Archive , Basalt Monolith , Peregrine Drake (he’s fun), and anything else you have. Sol Ring and what not.
Now draw. Mystic Remora is definitely worth the price. It’ll draw you a ton of cards and Brago will keep the upkeep cost to . Other good draw is Trial of Knowledge , Sea Gate Oracle , Unquestioned Authority , Traveler's Cloak , Pentarch Ward , Curator's Ward (you draw cards and can trenchant your commander!) Heliod's Pilgrim , and more. There are always permanents that help you draw.
Shoutout to Cloudform and Lightform for cheating everything into play. Should you want to keep your manifested a creature a 2/2 instead of blinking it (for example, it’s an instant) you only need to blink the ~~~~form enchantment. Also, Reality Acid and Nevermaker do great.
Also, planeswalkers. Add them if you’ve got them. Like Narset, Parter of Veils . She’s good.
Those are my suggestions anyway. Now if you’re to take any cards out, I’d start with Serra's Blessing . Your commander can blink itself and all your creatures so they have pseudo-vigilance. I’d also remove instants and sorcerers from your deck that can be easily replaced with a blinkable permanent with the same effect ( Unsummon —> Nevermaker ).

Good to see you here, hkhssweiss and thank you for the ideas. You're definitely onto something in most, if not all, cases. I still have trouble considering taking some of them out, but below is my responses and I'd be grateful to hear what you have to say!
I can definitely see Lorescale Coatl as being one of the top removals. He's great cause he get's big in here, fast, and having another option for that as a win-con is helpful. 3 out of the 6 games I've run this so far (heavy on cards) I've pulled off one of my psychological end-games with one opponent surviving and threw Traveler's Cloak on a Mr.Bigs for the final blow. However, I also have Toothy, Skulker, Psychosis Crawler and Tishana herself, so I probably won't need Lorescale. Moving to maybe.
Saying that, Bioshift was in case I (likely_ get 1-2 of the 3 counter generators out and either be able to shift them all onto Toothy for a bounce, Skulker before it's removed, or onto something else for a final surprise blow. However, if I'm taking out Lorescale Coatl , Bioshift loses much of that value. Moving to maybe.
Vorel of the Hull Clade on the other hand does any kind of counters rather than just +1/+1, which is super potent with either of the Myojins. So much so that he becomes a power-node in the network.
Keeping him in means Seahunter also stays as power-node; while I only have 4 merfolk in here, they each play a strong role with a different win-con setup depending on what's happening in the game. One draws me a bunch of cards from having none, one windfalls my hand to the same size for mass card-draw triggers, one flickers Tishana (or other ETB creatures), and the other doubles the counters on the Myojins or Mr.Bigs creatures. To tutor one of these out at any time, directly on to the battlefield for free becomes game winning in many cases. He, like Mirror Image , is one of those creatures that doesn't have great face value, but his place in the network makes him worthy of a spot.
Simic Guildmage is a tough one. I'm not entirely convinced on taking Traveler's Cloak out because of the power I've seen it have in many games. Also the other auras are part of infinite combos, but also helpful to get out on non-combo creatures early on, to speed up my board state. I need a way to shift the aura's when one of the other combo pieces hits the ground. It's also great interactivity with the Voltron style some decks in my meta play, and the protection people put on their commanders. I'll keep an eye on him though as I play test this. I'd say he's definitely an option to move to the maybe board.
Renewing Touch was in mind as something to restock my deck in a grindy game, to keep me from milling myself and to get all the great utility creatures back. I haven't gotten to a grindy game yet with this, so I think this will make its way to sideboard for now for sure. Same with Boundless Realms , though I do believe it has big power to not just ramp huge, then thin my draws to mainly creatures which I can then play without a problem because of all the mana available. Keep in mind I'm in a slower meta... however, I do also see it for how it lacks value in the more linear, focused gameplay where I'm just trying to get to the win-con. Sideboarding it.
Ovinize - I'm worried about lack of removal in this deck and there's players in my meta who us stuff like angels that give all their creatures indestructible or hexproof. This guy seems great for dealing with those things, especially with the help of politicking. On that note, Winged Coatl is also great as, once players in my meta know he's in my deck they talk themselves out of attacking me if I have a few mana up. Or not attacking if he's on the board. In the end, with both of these, I'm worried about not having answers, both to power creatures in others decks, and monsters attacking me when I have a board full of little creatures. I'll try pulling these out and give it a bunch of plays to see what happens, but it's tough.
Great call on Deadeye Navigator ! I've been wanting an excuse to pick one of these up and, while I'm worried about his place on the curve, I see his great value and think this deck could handle it in many cases. It's powerful as a repeatable flicker, for sure.
Also, when I was reviewing your Tuvasa of the Eternal Aeon Primer, I noticed Pemmin's Aura which I think could replace Freed from the Real here. It has the same untap ability, but also can make the creature flying which gives it double duty as more evasion for one of the Mr.Bigs. What do you think?

Yo what's up goldlion!
Here would be the ten cards I recommend cutting!
- Traveler's Cloak
- Boundless Realms
- Renewing Touch
- Winged Coatl
- Lorescale Coatl
- Simic Guildmage
- Vorel of the Hull Clade
All the cards listed above doesn't go with tthe theme in the deck or too little of a current synergy that you can go remove all the +1/+1 side theme going on.
Hope that helps buddy!
I would also abuse more ETB effects since you are going with the mill draw/pain route. You can use Deadeye Navigator to pair with Tishana to draw your whole deck. It isn't infinite if you blink her several times :P

Neurok Stealthsuit might not be a bad but of protection for Daxos, especially with the instant-speed equip for UU.
Traveler's Cloak might also help him land damage.

I love Brago, King Eternal as a commander! It's really easy to make fun decks with him, but also to make him a really strong control-based commander as well! Some cards I would suggest either way are...
Reality Acid: It just isn't a Brago deck without this wonderful enchantment. Normally you put this on a permanent, and three turns later that permanen dies when vanishing kicks in. Blink it with braago, though, and now you get to blow up a permanent every single turn, as blinking it removes it from play. Just make sure you don't go 3 full rounds without hitting anyone or put it on something that will die some other way, or it will truely vanish.
Reflector Mage: Bouncing creatures galore! Not only do you get a bounce every time you hit, but that card also can't be replayed on it's controller's next turn.
Stalking Leonin: A personal favorite of mine, just make sure you bring a lot of scrap paper to mark down your most recent target. Even if you haven't triggered the ability yet,, keep it blinking every turn to keep your opponents guessing about who it's aimed at. MAkes people afraid to swing at you with individual big critters.
Act of Authority: reality acid, but only for artifacts and enchantments. Never give this away, just bounce it every turn.
Spine of Ish Sah: A bit expensive for another removal spell, but with a big upside in that it is almost immune to being destroyed itself.
Nevermaker: Slightly on the slower side compared to your other removal, but with a huge upside. Aiming this at someone who doesn't have a way to draw extra cards just makes them lose the game, because they just keep getting the same one over and over.
Whirler Virtuoso: This card is everything brago loves. Blink it for lots of tokens to gum up the board, and use those tokens to make Brago unblockable every turn for more blinking!
Traveler's Cloak: Make Brago unblockable, and draw a card every turn! Only downside is that you don't want to blink Brago while you're using this, since you'd rather blink this for the card draw and continued unblockable.
Pentarch Ward: This doesn't necessarily make Brago unblockable, but it probably does for at least one player. Also helps keep him safe from removal.
And finally, if you want to make your deck extra mean... Strionic Resonator: This card causes an infinite loop with Brago and a combined number of mana rocks that make at least 2 mana, letting you make infinite Brago triggers off of one hit. Add literally any other blinkable card to the mix, and you've probably won due to infinite mana, removal, etc. Not for use in casual groups.
