- Flickered Akroma, angel of wrath and abrupt decay
- Will flickering a card to and from exile avoid 'sacrifice at end of turn?'
- Morph and blinking the creature
- If I use Whip of Erebos to unearth a creature and I then target them with Cloudshift, what happens?
- Can what fetches fetch avoid nukes like flickering a permanent does?
Exile target creature you control, then return that card to the battlefield under your control.

Having recently finished a blink deck, I can give some tested advice.
Looking at your mana base, I can see you're on a budget, as I was. So a color change might not work for you.... but blue is just better than black for flicker.
Green is good for
Which are a necessity without
And 2x MAYBE 3 Eternal Witness
You want white for
These decks don't have room for toolbox removal like
4x Wall of Omens are better
Than Elvish Visionary
And also probably
Now here is why you want blue.
= a 2/2 flyer which sticks and draw 4 cards.
Which can be blinked again with
Blue now has
I'm sure you can see where I'm going with this.
And finally, even if you stick to these colors, you want MONSTERS to Morph not Siege Rhino
Which are both practically untouchable from removal.
Typing on phone, apologies for any jumble

Teal_Fox - I originally had Eldrazi Displacer in the list, but I was worried about if I would have enough sources to generate the colorless mana for his ability in a deck running four colors. Still not sure if I have enough for that, but I will definitely pay close attention to see if it is right to bring him back into the list. Purphoros, God of the Forge is a very solid suggestion, I will see what I can do about getting him in here. He will never be a creature, but I think that is okay. Altar of the Brood may come in if I do end up putting Trinket Mage in. I don't know how I forgot about Whir of Invention.
As to your points on what to take out, I think Saheeli's Artistry is a possibility, as is Memnarch. It is true that I don't have ways to really abuse Memnarch as the list stands now, and your points on Saheeli's Artistry are valid. I have had very good luck with both Filigree Angel and Noxious Gearhulk, but if I were to remove one, I think the angel gets the boot here. It's possibly true that the ability is only good if I am already ahead, so I think I am going to try replacing it and seeing if I miss it. Noxious Gearhulk has proved itself to be very worthwhile, however - he helps cut down a scary opponent while being a sizable body on my board at the same time. He's also very nice to pair with Deadeye Navigator.
Last thing, what are your thoughts on Hanna, Ship's Navigator in this list?
Zombot - Cloudshift could work, however I would need to find a slot for it where I think it is truly better than what I am removing for it. I will look at the list and see what I can find. What would be your cut, other than things listed above, as those slots will probably be filled with recommendations from Teal_Fox

I'm looking to slowly piece together a Ramos deck for when Ramos comes out later this year and I'm trying to get a short list of Flicker cards.
Here are the restrictions I've got:
1: Must flicker and return to the board IMMEDIATELY. No flickers that return at end of turn/start of next turn.
2: Must work on Legendary Artifacts and/or Legendary Creatures.
3: No colour restrictions.
Due to the fact that Flicker really doesn't have a fixed searchable mechanic word like Lifelink or Menace, it's not as easy to search for. These are the ones I have so far:
- Ghostly Flicker
- Essence Flux
- Restoration Angel
- Momentary Blink
- Deadeye Navigator
Have I missed any? Any other suggestions?

I'm not quite sure how this should work. I've read though the comprehensive rules for this and I got the following:
"111.1. A spell is a card on the stack. As the first step of being cast (see rule 601, Casting Spells), the card becomes a spell and is moved to the top of the stack from the zone it was in, which is usuallyits owners hand. (See rule 405, Stack.) A spell remains on the stack as a spell until it resolves(see rule 608, Resolving Spells and Abilities), is countered (see rule 701.5), or otherwise leavesthe stack. For more information, see section 6, Spells, Abilities, and Effects."
Magic the Gathering Comprehensive Rules 19.06.2017
If I understand you comment right, you would like to exile the Cloudshift after it resolves. But that is not possible since it is no longer a spell or on the stack after it resolves. Please let me know if I misunderstood you or the rules. :D

@Queritz imaging exiling Cloudshift though, then you Cloudshift the Spell Queller, casting Cloudshift on the Mulldrifter, drawing up to 8 cards with the 4 Panharmonicons, then the Spell Queller comes back into play, exile Cloudshift. This allows you to reuse a Cloudshift several times, 2 for 1. After having playtested a bit, can confirm, i Reflector Mage'd the Spell Queller back to hand to cast Essence Flux twice on Mulldrifter with 4 Panharmonicons on the battlefield drawing 24 cards.

LeaPlath, I do have spell-slinging, which is more tempo than crontrol, as well as ETB, again more tempo than control. I can only see a cheating-into-play subtheme in with an effect like Cloudshift or Essence Flux. I see what you mean with Ajani Vengeant having more relevant abilities, and, with more tempo in the format, his first ability is better than Nahiri, the Harbinger's. Splashing is relatively common, so more archetypes could take advantage.

With all the different effects your creatures have i would consider throwing in an Odric, Lunarch Marshal, Cloudshift mainly for the art flavor, but the etb retrigger is nice, Planar Outburst boardwipe, Emeria Shepherd get back some useful cards from your graveyard,Descend upon the Sinful art flavor and board wipe,Goldnight Redeemer life gain per creature, and finally Aegis Angel for commander protection.

I found some cool things when trying to find human solders. Brave the Elements could save your creatures from some hate, or a free blocking turn. you could also use Cloudshift to flicker Captain of the Watch or Ranger of Eos for extra triggers.
