Seeing how huge an advantage Krark's Thumb is, I was thinking about cards that will help you have it more often. You may not want all these but just thinking out loud...

Tutor it out of your library:

  • Fabricate, probably the best
  • Tribute Mage, also the best
  • Reshape, drawback: you have to sacrifice an artifact (probably a mana rock)
  • Inventors' Fair could work if you have enough other artifacts in the deck
  • Goblin Engineer can tutor it to your graveyard, then bring it back to the battlefield. It's a few hoops to jump through but also an option to bring it back from the graveyard if someone's destroyed it.

Get it back from the graveyard:

@NinjaBunny01 - I would say probably $5 or less honestly. I do have Necropotence so I will figure out how to slot that in. In addition to the cards I listed earlier, I am also found Mystical Tutor, Cruel Tutor, Lim-Dul's Vault, and Wishclaw Talisman. Those are going to slot in as soon as I work out what to remove for each of them. Haha, kind of leaning toward Murderous Cut, Treasure Cruise, Bring to Light, Tribute Mage, and Krosan Grip. What would you recommend?

For your consideration, although I'm guessing they were already under your radar, Sigil of Sleep and Suq'Ata Firewalker . If you end up going for the beautifully bureaucratic wizard flavor of Aphetto Alchemist , then Gilded Lotus , Doubling Cube and Astral Cornucopia look desirable for making blue mana to get extra mileage out of Freed from the Real and Pemmin's Aura . Trophy Mage and Tribute Mage could hunt down Thousand-Year Elixir and Magewright's Stone for you. Walking Ballista might be an all too often encountered wincon but it does possess strong Tim-like qualities. The deck's looking good, have fun and happy pinging!

Couple of card swap suggestions. I don't really like Fatal Push in here. Pretty narrow in commander. Feed the Swarm is flexible and effective and feels like a great card for this deck. You could also probably cut Doom Blade for another counterspell. I'll recommend Arcane Denial or Drown in the Loch .

Also, Psychic Corrosion , Maddening Cacophony and Ruin Crab are nice for milling all of you opponents. Syr Konrad, the Grim and Into the Story seem like good payoffs for getting those cards into graveyards.

Other cards that don't seem to fit are Diabolic Tutor since you already have 2 other strong tutors for this deck. I think some of the above payoffs or mill cards would be a better fit. Trinket Mage since it only gets you a few artifacts that don't seem super impactful. If you really believe that you need those one and zero-drops, I can respect that. It seems like Tribute Mage might be better, though to secure your 2-drop combo and protection pieces + ramp.

Speaking of ramp my last main comment has to do with the low amount of ramp and card draw in your deck. 2 and 3 mana ramp work great to get your commander out ahead of curve and keep your deck running smoothly. I'll recommend Mind Stone and Dimir Locket as those help to kill two birds with one stone.

Also, keep an eye on Bruvac the Grandiloquent 's price. It's slowly decreasing currently but will probably go up again the next time they print a semi-decent mill commander.

Transmute Artifact and Reshape are both great! The only reason I didn't include them (except price for Transmute Artifact ) is because I'm trying to not rely too much on tutors. Maybe I could replace Tribute Mage but I don't like the idea of needing an artifact in play for tutoring... It's definitely something worth testing.

Strionic Resonator is like a 2 mana version of lithoform. It can be tutored with Tribute Mage and Enlightened Tutor and is the best Brago wincon in my opinion (along with Lithoform). I also like running some cheap cards that draw on ETB to flicker with Brago like Confounding Conundrum and Omen of the Sea . Act of Authority has been a top-notch removal spell for me. I find that his biggest weakness is getting through flying blockers. Usually, someone has no flyers out at the table, but if you play one-on-one, I'd add some evasion. Traveler's Cloak and Unquestioned Authority give evasion and a card when flickered. I don't see this in a lot of lists, but I love Scroll of Fate . You can manifest any permanent from your hand, then flicker it and it returns to play face up. Cloudform and Lightform do this too, but off the top of your deck instead. Here is my list: https://www.mtggoldfish.com/deck/3871820#paper

flyingscottydoesntknow: Good catch on the double command tower. I just got a Grave Titan and working on getting an Agent of Treachery . Tribute Mage would be a good idea to add. Thanks
