- 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.

Recently checked out Cloudshift . It only targets Creatures. & you're more right to a T about Isochron Scepter than many would wish; at least here of course. I'll have to deal w/ the Nature of the Spark on this...
Although, I've been trying to do something else entirely; but some would say it's "Impossible". & it involves Mono-. That's all I'm revealing, but for now, I'm going to have to look for a list of stuff Daretti #2 can use as copies...

If you take a look at my deck list you'll see that I've added Thalia's Lancers . Tell you the truth, it's great... and not that great. I don't have a tutor for it so I'm relying on luck of the draw (which sucks by the way).
You'll also see that I've added Stonehorn Dignitary which is great because I can tutor for it, and cast Cloudshift and lock down opponents that rely on combat to trigger their tricks or stop them from killing... ever. I found it easier to lock down opponents pre-Paradox phase by using only 1 White per opponent's turn instead of using Intimidation Bolt that costs 3 mana per opponent's turn (THAT'S 9 MANA!!).
I took out Boros Charm and it made my competitive level from 87% to 94%, go figure... I have no idea why it would go up that much.

What do you think about Selfless Squire ? I play a few game with my Feather and now I'm often attacked first and need to deal mostly by dragons. Slefless Squire help with prevent all this damage, specialy when you have Cloudshift in your hand.

multimedia Thanks for your suggestions! My deck did run Balduvian Rage for a long time; but I decided against it for two reasons: for one; it’s a fake instant. You can only cast it on an Attacking creature, so you completely miss out on the recast ability a “lesser” card like, say, Titan's Strength gives you. That, plus the fact that you pretty much have to tap out (4 mana for a pump spell is a LOT in this deck) to make it equal to said Titan's Strength just isn’t worth it imo. Plus, Orim’s Thunder is a repeatable destruction spell that I can kick while Sunforger tutors it up; which I find baddass.
Stand Firm is a highly underrated card in this deck as scrying two in the late game really helps me dig for answers or protection; and honestly I think more decks should run it. The stat boost is minimal compared to the recurring value of possibly scrying 8 before your next turn begins. That said; if they ever print an instant of Seize the Day that is 4CMC or less you’d better bet your ass I’ll add it in.
Knight of the White Orchid was originally in this deck but I removed it for a Tithe , so that way I can search for Mistveil Plains and get that sweet Sunforger synergy. If I could make a cut that would allow me both Knight AND the Bauble I’d be happy; as the Knight is situational in that I need LESS lands than my opponent whereas Bauble don’t care. That, and I run Bauble for the minute chance I can drop it whilst I control a Monastery Mentor . That’s it. Knight is just a decent bear that I wouldn’t want to target over any other creature in the deck.
Guttersnipe is, admittedly, a great card; that I would love to reinclude at some point just for pure value; but alas the vast majority of the time I win through Feather going face REALLY hard instead of my tokens getting the reacharound; so Guttersnipe’s aoe damage isn’t as valuable to me right now... plus, Akroan Conscriptor has some Janky combos of his own; allowing me to Cloudshift a creature he stole to allow me to keep it for forever: or even Path to Exile it so I can ramp while removing their board! :D
Forbidden Orchard is neat; though I’m not a fan of giving my opponents reseources when my gameplan is to out value them. Ill give it thought.

Personally, I love it. I think the only thing you might want is cards that will protect your big beatsticks from board wipes and targeted destruction. Darksteel stuff helps, but a Cloudshift or Essence Flux can save the day when you really need it.

TwinStags Here are the cards you want opinions: Oblation Stuffy Doll Silverclad Ferocidons Crack the Earth Misguided Rage ( Phalanx Leader Anax and Cymede tokens with Young Pyromancer Launch the Fleet Monastery Mentor Akroan Crusader Vanguard of Brimaz ) Goblinslide Tenth District Legionnaire Burning Prophet and I'll give you my opinions.
Oblation : This is a great card! For 2 and a White you exile a token and get TWO LANDS!! VALUE!! Until you run out of basic lands to fetch. Then you're getting rid of 1 creature threat at a cost of giving two lands to only ONE of your opponents. ChibiNature's explanation for getting rid of Oblation is higher up on this thread. But Oblation only does so much for 3 CMC. Compare to other spells that is in this deck, that is also 3 CMC, Oblation is a clear choice to cut. BUT, if you are going the TOKEN route for your EDH deck then this is good. Not great, only good.
Stuffy Doll Silverclad Ferocidons : These two are basically the same effect, hurt them and they hurt our opponent. So the question becomes 'How many 'Direct Damage' spells are we going to run? The answer: Not enough. These two cards do not justify the amount of direct damage spells we need to run to kill our opponents.
Crack the Earth Misguided Rage : These cards have no synergy with Feather, the Redeemed , there is no value because we can't replay these cards unless we do graveyard recursion which is a host of other cards that is NOT in Boros colors.
Phalanx Leader Anax and Cymede tokens with Young Pyromancer Launch the Fleet Monastery Mentor Akroan Crusader Vanguard of Brimaz ) Goblinslide : This is actually a good idea, make a bunch of tokens and just spew all over our opponents faces. This is probably the 2nd best way to play Feather, the Redeemed . It does need a lot of setup and luck in drawing your creatures and spells. I can see an aggro deck that snowballs very fast. You'll be enemy #1 very fast. But can you bounce back after a boardwipe? How many turns will it take for you to rebuild your army of tokens? What about the balance of number of creatures to number of pump spells? How are you going to protect your tokens from being wiped?
Tenth District Legionnaire Burning Prophet : Scrying is nice. Drawing is better. For example you cast a spell onto Tenth District Legionnaire and you scry and decide to keep that card on the top. What happens to the next spell you cast onto Tenth District Legionnaire . If it is a pump spell, then it's better to cast it onto Zada, Hedron Grinder and pump ALL your tokens instead of only Tenth District Legionnaire . The same argument goes for Burning Prophet as well. My opinion is that Burning Prophet is better than Tenth District Legionnaire
You are missing two other ways to play Feather, the Redeemed . Have you looked into Flicker playstyle using Cloudshift and Otherworldly Journey ? Have you seen Zealous Conscripts and Stonehorn Dignitary ? Imagine casting Cloudshift onto Stoneforge Mystic ! ProTip: Use Zealous Conscripts to grab an enemy creature, then cast Cloudshift onto the creature you stole... that creature is now yours until it dies, not until end of turn!

Generally speaking, if it's a permanent, it will come into play. There is nothing "under" a manifest creature, the manifest tokens are merely aids to help you keep track.
If it's not a permanent, it will stay in whatever zone it used to flicker (probably exile in a case like Cloudshift ).
There's an Oracle ruling on Cloudform that reads like this: If an effect tries to return a face-down creature to the battlefield after it leaves (such as Aminatou’s second ability or Adarkar Valkyrie’s delayed triggered ability), that effect returns the card face up. If it tries to put an instant or sorcery card onto the battlefield this way, that card remains in its current zone instead.
You can see it yourself here (link to the card on Scryfall, rulings down towards the bottom).
There's a lot of other interactions to be aware of in those rulings if you have time as well. For example Break Open can't turn a non-permanent face-up.
