Barbarian_Sun_Pope on Saint Traft's Big Bad Frat Party

Dungeon Geists is a pretty good recursion target to keep your opponents locked down. Reveillark, though not a spirit, can recur just about every creature in your deck. If you want some extra recursion, Venser, the Sojourner and Thassa, Deep-Dwelling are pretty good. Venser also works particularly well with the St. Traft. Hope this helps.

Barbarian_Sun_Pope on Venser Tribal?

Love Venser, have you considered Spark Double? Though it doesn't reference Venser, it can technically come down as another copy of Venser, the Sojourner =).

Yeah taking a closer look at the mana base I’d say Farhaven Elf too. Wood Elves gets non-basic forests untapped, so it’s generally my go to, but without shocks, check duals, cycling lands or abur duals it doesn’t do much.

Attacking tends to be one of those things that just isn’t guaranteed so anything that doesn’t have to attack to function is definitely more useful.

I was looking at that aspect of Soulherder’s functionality and still don’t like it. Yes it’s free and yes it comes back right away, untapping things, but creatures die a lot in this format, and I’m generally disappointed if my value engine gets killed by a random wrath. Venser, the Sojourner? It still comes back on your end step and it also gets the upside of making all your stuff unblockable...

Lanzo493 on Commander - Sisay - Superfriends

Cards I love for superfriends are Pir, Imaginative Rascal and Oath of Teferi. They allow you to get to your ultimates really quickly. I also like including as many planeswalkers with game ending ultimates as possible. That's why I use Narset Transcendent, Tamiyo, Field Researcher, Jace, Unraveler of Secrets, and Venser, the Sojourner. I just wish I owned a Teferi, Hero of Dominaria. If any one of those planeswalkers gets to their ultimate it puts you at a huge advantage.

Heliogabale on bantish wall budget

Such a great commander! When it was first announced I immediately started building the deck, it is so fun to play. The drawback is that the deck is very commander-dependent.

You absolutely need to add High Alert as a redundancy, it is much better than Assault Formation, although you could keep both and lose something with less value like The Birth of Meletis. Then lose your least-favourite wall and add Chulane, Teller of Tales, which will add draw and land drops.

You will need to protect you board; I see you have a few cards in that price range, so I would highly recommend Privileged Position. You may also want to have Diplomatic Immunity to protect Arcades or Chulane.

You want to add more flicker effects; Brago, King Eternal is a good way to do that. If you cand spend to add a planeswalker, Venser, the Sojourner is great in this deck.

Panharmonicon will straight up double your draw from Arcades. To stay on theme and add a bit of bite, I like Dragon Throne of Tarkir to equip on Arcades.

I hope some of these suggestions are helpful; if looking for inspiration you can consult We Don't Need No Education.

Bant blink is easily one of my favorite decks... some cards to consider are Venser, the Sojourner as an alternate blink engine/wincon... Wall of Omens/Wall of Blossoms for slowing aggro and helping you draw into key pieces...Eternal Witness to enable tons of shenanigans.

Overall +1 this certainly looks good!
