Thanks for upvoting my EDH WonderCats deck! So I'm looking at your deck here, and I have a few suggestions- in fact, I built a deck in response to seeing yours JUST to give you my own take on a Cat-Tribal Standard deck, Standard Cat Tribal. I mostly play Modern, & cats really aren't strong enough for Modern, but there are some decent cards in Standard right now for cats- namely Adorned Pouncer, Longtusk Cub, Prowling Serpopard, & Regal Caracal, so I would definitely use a full 4x playset of each of those! If going all-cat tribal, then Pride Sovereign is a bomb late game, especially with Anointed Procession, Vanquisher's Banner, & Regal Caracal, as well as early-value repeaters like Sacred Cat. I would drop all the other cats, to be honest- they are not nearly strong enough! Watchers of the Dead is okay as a sideboard option against a dedicated graveyard strategy, but even then will miss the things you actually want to get rid of. Feral Prowler just wastes mana for a chump-blocker that replaces itself; Stalking Tiger is far too little value for it's CMC; Wily Bandar is maybe ok in Draft, but not in constructed; etc, etc. Ambuscade is only worth running if your creatures have high enough Power for it to be a reliable removal spell (cat's don't have high enough power, unless you are already winning). Definitely replace Tranquil Expanse with the strictly-better Scattered Groves. Sunpetal Grove is a 4x must, too. I would also replace Call for Unity with Vanquisher's Banner, which has less restrictive mana-color-requirements and more immediate value. Anyways, check out theStandard Cat Tribal deck I made to show what I would consider running! I just built it, so it is not polished & is sorely lacking removal, but it's meant to be super-aggro anyway. Good luck!

With the amount of basics you have I would say to either take out Farhaven Elf or Solemn Simulacrum (I say either because of the differing mana costs) I like the pick with the Ulvenwald Hydra with all the non basics. I like the doomsday thing you're trying to pull off with Laboratory Maniac, I would chuck it in my deck as well, but getting the combo reliably isn't consistent and if you draw a lab maniac during a regular game I guarantee you that he will sit in your hand forever and its the first thing you discard since it doesn't actively do something, I get that every piece serves a purpose but lab maniac doesn't serve much of a purpose except take up a valuable card slot to get to a game plan that won't happen often (good try though). My recommendation to you is that you get a Minion Reflector instead since it doubles ETB triggers with a hasty body for mana and it combos just as well as the infinite draw combo you wanted to fire off.
Add Jace's Mindseeker it synergizes well with your diluvian primordial. Instead of Goldnight Redeemer use Cloudblazer, its the card draw that sells this one and at that rate add Mulldrifter over blue sun's.
By themselves Myr Battlesphere, Avenger of Zendikar, can sure make tokens and operate as efficient threats by themselves but they need a bit more to be more relevant, Hornet Queen is in a worse position but in the same boat.Cathars' Crusade, Call for Unity and Meadowboon can shore up the fact that your value creatures and tokens are typically small while staying with your main game plan (while staying cheaper than Craterhoof Behemoth), even if that's fetching for a basic. Swap the angel of invention for the crusade. Instead of icefall reagent use Frost Titan if you want more value locking things down. You have in your deck, you want Leyline of Anticipation since if its in your opening hand its free over the orrery if you didn't have then run the orrery.
I'm under the assumption that you want to be a control variant, which is fine but you need to have more control aspects like counterspells, add Counterspell Disallow, Voidslime and Glen Elendra Archmage she also combos well the cathar's crusade. I want you to look at Ghostly Flicker and tell me how good it is after a board wipe, cards like that are not good cards, you have the right idea with adding other blinkers like restoration angel, and Eldrazi displacer, they are so much better in comparison since they are creatures and can do something versus sitting in your hand and doing nothing after a wipe. Vorinclex seems cool, but I find that stalling out my opponents does better when its my main game plan (he also doesn't have an ETB effect either), I don't see much use out of him otherwise.
A bunch of your cards are good cards but the deck needs more focus. Edric rewards aggressive decks, this deck has aspects but can't always cash in on that. This deck wants to control the board but has a big volume of unnecessary blink (cough* ghostly flicker cards exclusively) and creatures that don't control the board, unlike stonehorn dignitary and mystic snake. You can get a lot more reliable and repeatable card draw out of creatures versus instants and sorceries because you run a blink deck, so abuse that. I don't understand what you seek to copy with cards like progenitor mimic, if you want cool creatures go with a control classic like Gilded Drake.
Choose a style and go with it, if you take a look at my Roon deck you will see a lot of cards that don't seem to synergize, but they have a common and fun theme that's extremely powerful and oppressive since they have an underlying theme. I control the board then I go aggro for the win. Treat your Roon deck like an exclusively ETB/LTB midrange deck at first. There are a lot of cuts I would make if I were in your shoes, but i'm not so its really in your ball court to start capitalizing on Roon's potential. There are also a lot more things to say, but I'll let this comment sink in for now. Just ask if you need more help/suggestions, or check out my list for reference.

How the deck plays is that it locks out scarier opponents with its value control creatures and makes allies with Roon's blink ability with the subtheme of hyper-ramp. Eventually the deck seeks to close out the game with said value creatures using Cathars' Crusade, Call for Unity, and Meadowboon due to the deck's huge capacity for low power value creatures. The other threats like Trostani's Summoner, and Avenger of Zendikar are more for go wide strategies and being fantastic closers on their own, that and they combo well with Cathars' Crusade. You can also steal your opponent's finishers with Gilded Drake, along with something similar to the kiki-jiki combo with Minion Reflector as detailed in one of my updates.
The deck is primarily value, bant doesn't have very many offensive ETB options outside of the ones mentioned in my list and Armada Wurm, let alone LTB.. So you have to compensate somehow and be a little more creative. Besides, the low power on my creatures means that Reveillark becomes more and more relevant outside of being a combo piece for said minion reflector.
Roon can be a build around commander, but typically you're building a concept around him, not a playstyle. Value is a concept, its not like Aggro, or Control, but is a lot more like Tempo-Midrange since whatever you draw is good, but it stalls your opponents. The only niche pick in my deck is the Stonehorn Dignitary since it only stalls combat. Now that I look at the deck, I find that my deck isn't built around Roon, but that Roon makes the plan move forward. He isn't like Krenko, Mob Boss where if you just stop him with Song of the Dryads you effectively removed the deck, he's more like the guy that pulls the lever on the machine and can walk away.
I don't know if you have a decklist for your Roon deck on here Hellfiend, but I think that you might be lacking other enablers or not abusing that ally making potential that Roon has if he keeps getting removed like that (at least that's my impression). Look at it this way, Roon is an enabler not the game plan, if they waste removal on Roon, then its one less removal spell to be used on your finishers as long as you have other enablers, otherwise that removal is even more useful when they stop Roon. Unless you are playing actual competitive EDH, then I don't know what to say about that.
I guess this deck is competitive in the casual sense versus try hard. I also never asked for the higher competitive percentage, but I'm not saying I don't want it, I very much like the fact that people consider this to be a competitive list. My deck wants to be fun and somewhat interactive (or at least that's how I intended to build this one anyway). I can also most certainly look at Ixidron, the more I think about it seems like a better and better option. I even have one on hand, however I'm probably not doing the elesh norn thing, enemy graveyard shenanigans and all that...
I find Thought Vessel to be not too very effective in my deck since it likes to interact with the graveyard, even Reliquary Tower is looking to be on the chopping block. I also have enough colorless sources as is for Eldrazi Displacer and Thought-Knot Seer. I have Ashnod's Altar to dodge exile removal or to help with mana in a pinch, and enable my infinite combo with minion reflector.
I hope this clears some things up Hellfiend.

Have you thought of using Cathars' Crusade, Call for Unity, or even Meadowboon instead of Master Biomancer? or is that too high a CMC for your meta? If that is the case I can very much understand why Panharmonicon isn't in your deck, either that or you don't know what to cut. Although I am getting a stax vibe.

I see you either bought the prebuilt or you went and got the commander's anthology, either way I like your pick of Roon. Now a bunch of these cards are either niche playable, or sadly don't have much relevance since they do nothing in the absolute worst case, but I'll get onto that topic a little later.
Now first begs the question: "Where am I going with Roon and what are my win conditions" You can't just drown your opponents is straight value and hope they give up because you drew so many cards. So you can go 3 ways:
Bant aggro/good stuff: This deck abuses the fact that Roon is a 4/4 beater with trample and vigilance that can save a creature or remove a blocker, the deck is more focused on the value it gains for using cards like Cathars' Crusade, Meadowboon, and Call for Unity to allow the smaller value creatures that can incidentally help get to the bigger threats do something (swing face): Solemn Simulacrum, Farhaven Elf, Mulldrifter and smaller bodied tokens to get bigger in case the value threats are gone or to close out games faster. It's finishers are go-wide aggro threats that play off cards like the crusade like Avenger of Zendikar, Walker of the Grove, Trostani's Summoner, Hornet Queen, Armada Wurm, and Craterhoof Behemoth to play off of all those tokens. Birthing Pod is a must for this style of deck as it allows you to get those value threats faster with no real setback. typically has some interaction like Counterspell or obligatory Cyclonic Rift, other than that its a value aggro deck.
Bant value control: This style really abuses the fact that Roon can blink stuff. Its focus is to lock its opponents out any way it can. Some styles of this variant vary, like hard lock, and soft lock. It has some of the same building blocks as aggro like using Mulldrifter and Solemn Simulacrum, but it focuses more on abusing Roon's ability with cards like Training Grounds and denying its opponents with value with Stonehorn Dignitary, Mystic Snake, Reflector Mage, Nevermaker, and Gilded Drake. Obviously it focuses less on attacking so its value threats use their abilities more to influence opponent's. It plays counterspells and good spot removal to assure victory, it can even hedge into becoming a stax build, (hard lock).
Hybrid: It has the best of both worlds with, it doesn't focus too much on either but has the ability to win on either front. this style sacrifices a consistent win condition to go and secure a spot to play value creatures and typically beats face for victory in multiplayer by stalling out scarier opponents and making allies with Roon's blink ability. In 1v1 it has the capability to dominate equally fast decks with its splashed control aspect. It uses the crusade as well, along with those huge value threats like the avenger of zendikar and birthing pod (for value), along with controlling value creatures like the stonehorn dignitary and gilded drake (secret tech, run Thought-Knot Seer). Some play more into one aspect over the other, and that's fine.
At the end of it all Roon is exceedingly versatile and can meet most standards you set it to, however Roon decks can be hosed by an artifact and its creature variants. Torpor Orb, if you don't have something to play around this like Naturalize, Krosan Grip, or Return to Dust there is really nothing your deck can do to stop it. The same goes for the creature variants, Hushwing Gryff/Tocatli Honor Guard, however since they are creatures they are inherently easier to remove, like with Swords to Plowshares, and Path to Exile. Some control variants play one or more of the value threats or Meadowboon to play around Orb when they don't have artifact/creature removal.
I tend to stay away from cards like Ghostway and Ghostly Flicker since they do nothing when you have no creatures on the battlefield, unlike their creature counterparts they can't block when you need a blocker. You have found a couple of blink creatures that fit the bill, and one that I didn't know existed! There is one to keep in mind though: Eldrazi Displacer its a fantastic card I recommend. Like mistmeadow witch and Roon it has repeatable blink, but it returns immediately, although tapped it can be used to invalidate blockers or to gain value. However you will need a bit more reliable colorless sources, which is why there are basics called Wastes, if you do run this I recommend running 3-4 wastes (4-6 if you have the seer).
Feel free to ask questions or peek at my list.
I hope this helps your brewing process, as well as others who seek to make a Roon deck!

backinajiffy i would really only use Dusk / Dawn if my board state was disrupted and i needed a hand reset from the graveyard but i do see your point. my hope is that by the time i'd be using the dawn half Call for Unity should have 1 or 2 unity counters on it which would be very helpful in resetting my board. having said that i think call for unity is the weakest card in this deck as it truly just isn't necessary and dusk/dawn is probably more useful. i think the move would be to sneak two dusk/dawn in the side board and swap the call for unity out for them if the need arises.

Good point. I would agree 2 Dusk / Dawn would be freakin sweet in here, but it doesn't synergize very well with as Call for Unity. I'd say you should probably choose one or the other since dusk / dawn would be a crap draw after you've already played call for unity.
