However, Soulherder's dual use as a general value accumulator and a wincon sets it, imo, as a must-have for any blink deck. Blade of Selves might not be as good as, perhaps, Progenitor Mimic, Helm of the Host, or other cards that don't require you to attack to get copies.

Cards like Soulherder, Pride Sovereign, and Galepowder Mage might be too slow/conditional to be effective. Pride sovereign is just a beater, which you may find lacklustre over time. Blade of Selves is a little expensive but I think it’s ridiculous in flicker builds.
One last thing to think about. You may not have enough mana to operate smoothly. You may want to consider adding 2-4 more lands, and possibly a couple more mana rocks to consistently be able to cast your spells. It depends on how your etb ramp works out though.

Thanks for the feedback! Long ago I did include Mistmeadow Witch, as well as other assorted flicker engines like Galepowder Mage. However I found that over-reliance on repeated flickering was lackluster in my playgroup. I also once leaned very hard on a Salvaging Station package, with around 10 utility cogs. But this diluted my deck too much, it would only be good if I built my deck around the Sharuum infinite.
I did have a Nev's Disk in there once but cut it out cause I found myself tutoring for the combo constantly. After cutting away most of my tutors I forgot all about it, am considering making space for it alongside the Mycosynth Lattice (it's something that will also help with Padeem and Leonin Abunas) so thanks for the suggestion!

jessniem I generally find that Yisan isn't too worried about to begin with, once you opponent/s see you get 3 uses in 1 turn he might be removed, but at least you can use him in response. I usually try and get Sylvan Safekeeper out before dropping him, when your opponent/s know you can easily protect him from spot removal they'll likely not bother trying as it's waste of their spell.
I usually go up the same chain of creatures;
1 - Serra Ascendant
2 - Harbinger of the Tides to bounce something
3 - Reflector Mage to bounce something
5 - Seedborn Muse no explanation needed
6 - Prime Speaker Zegana to refuel hand

Brago, King Eternal, Eldrazi Displacer, Galepowder Mage
Reclamation Sage, Duplicant, Solemn Simulacrum, Satyr Wayfinder, Thragtusk
Wall of Blossoms, Wall of Omens all of the best "enters the battlefield, draw a card".Scrivener, Mnemonic Wall
Ghostway, Eerie Interlude
Displace, Ghostly Flicker, Illusionist's StratagemVanish into Memory

Sage of Ancient Lore Flip has an "enters the battlefield" ability and packs quite a punch if transformed.
