Very nice article, berryjon! This was a fun look at one of my favorite mechanics, and was a pleasure to read. I will dispute the article's conclusion though, as whether or not flickering wins games depends entirely on what's being flickered.
Everybody knows card draw can win games, by ensuring you have the cards you need to win, so one of the most powerful effects flickering can abuse is card draw.
Watcher for Tomorrow and Sea Gate Oracle are great blink targets because they not only put a card in your hand, they also filter through your deck quickly, digging 3 or 4 cards deep with each ETB. Mulldrifter and Cloudblazer don't dig as deep, but make up for it by giving you 2 cards with every blink.
Another powerful, potentially game-winning ETB effect is token creation. Thragtusk is well-known for being a great flicker target, as it's 3/3 Beast token comes with a side helping of 3 life, and Armada Wurm starts as a great deal, with 10 trampling power for 6 mana, and just gets better with every flicker.
My personal favorite blink targets are the Splicers, e.g. Blade Splicer who not only produce 3/3 Golems, they boost their abilities as well. Nothing says inevitable victory quite like a couple of Soulherder flickering a Blade Splicer and a Master Splicer every turn, before you finally drop that Wing Splicer and have your Golem army fly in for the win!
Thanks again for covering one of my favorite subjects, I had a fun time both reading and replying to this one! As always, I look forward to your next article!

It sounds like you're building an abzan hatebears list. some old cards i recall going in the GW version would include some value generating cards like Voice of Resurgence and Blade Splicer. they played Ghost Quarter and Field of Ruin along side Leonin Arbiter. the way they dealt with it was Aether Vial which could be put to good use here (also was a great way to use Flickerwisp on an opponents turn). BW versions also played eldrazi like Thought-Knot Seer which provided some solid bodies and hate packaged into one card.

Hi nice deck! I'd love to see Boros going up up up!
May I suggest Blade Splicer for your deck?

The above comment about sums it up for me, unless you were planning to take it in a combo or other kind of direction! Here are some good Nethroi targets that have low power but make tokens or have good effects when they enter:
Deep Forest Hermit
Ghave, Guru of Spores
Trostani Discordant Trostani's Summoner
Here are some 0-power utility creatures to consider, because they're free to reanimate if they get killed:
Birds of Paradise
Embodiment of Agonies
Golgari Grave-Troll (also a great include because Dredge can fill your GY)
And you'll also want at least a few additional Mutaters in case you have Nethroi out and want to trigger it again:
...all seem like good includes.
Hope this gives you a good place to start and a list of interesting cards to consider. Many are very affordable. Now I kinda want to make a Nethroi deck.
