Exile target creature you control, then return that card to the battlefield under its owner's control. If it's a Spirit, put a +1/+1 counter on it.
Essence Flux Discussion
1 week ago
I don't really see the point of the +1/+1 subtheme here. I think more flicker effects could be better instead. Think cards like Conjurer's Closet , Deadeye Navigator , Displace , Essence Flux , Ghostly Flicker , Illusionist's Stratagem , Teferi's Time Twist , Voidwalk . Heck, even Identity Thief kinda fits this bill. Otherwise, just add more ETB effects. I notice there's no Coiling Oracle in here and I'm pretty shocked. Maybe some more removal would be prudent. Putrefy at the very least, more (3-5 instant speed removal spells) is probably better.
So cards I think are worth cutting are most things that have to do w/ +1/+1 counters. Winding Constrictor Skatewing Spy , Ivy Lane Denizen , Bred for the Hunt , Hardened Scales , potentially Evolution Sage . There's a few other counters cards that could be considered for cuts but have enough synergy with the rest of the deck to be fine. I'd also think about cutting down on the token subtheme as well. I don't see Verdant Force being that helpful. There's not enough cards that trigger on "whenever a creature ETB" in here for tokens to be really worth it, I think. Speaking of cards that trigger "when creature ETB" I don't really like Death Match or Season of Growth (or for that matter Hedonist's Trove ) in here. These cards don't really do enough for you or let your opponents do something bad to you, potentially. Once again, I'd look to put in more ETB effects or I'd look to add in a few instants and sorceries that do things you want to do in any deck (removal, board wipe, card draw, ramp, tutors, etc.)
Overall, this deck looks really fun. I hope to play against it someday.

Thanks for the comment Loganrockwitch.
Lingering Souls is really nice yep!
I have tried Inq and Thoughts it can be really good but to be honest its so painful especially with the land pain so Id rather play spirits and get the clock ticking faster.
Countersquall is nice to have encase of board wipes and the 2 life loss can be game winning

With the recent Soulherder card that's going to be released soon, I am considering building a W/U tribal Spirit deck that centers around bouncing creatures to buff it up, as well as using ETB effects to lock down the opponent. Obviously I would use cards like Nebelgast Herald , Rattlechains , and Spell Queller , as well as cards like Essence Flux , Path to Exile , and maybe even Always Watching ? I'd also maybe like to include Geist of Saint Traft , Brago, King Eternal , and Drogskol Captain if I can, but they may not fit.
I'm hoping I can get some suggestions for card choices here? I pretty much have lands covered and most of the creatures, but any suggestions would be most welcome. I'd like to keep this tribal, too.

Bonus points for Nucklavee , because you can target it and the stolen creature with Ghostly Flicker , and then the Nucklavee returns, you get back a Ghostly Flicker (as the blue instant), and the Threaten (as the red sorcery).

I play Soul of the Harvest for ETB triggers with Deadeye Navigator and Peregrine Drake mostly. Beast Whisperer could be a good include but I like the deck where it's at now. I've actually flickered Toothy before. I used Essence Flux to do that exact effect when my buddy played Wrath of God . It didn't save toothy but I drew 12 cards instead of just 5 because I already had Master Biomancer on the field. I ended up winning that game too because I came in with a cheeky deadeye-drake combo with Guardian Project and Jace, Wielder of Mysteries on the field.

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.
