Wow this deck has some unexpected horsepower. What do you think of Emiel the Blessed? It makes infinite colorless with Workhorse.

Riding the Dilu Horse could be another thematic way to present lethal with Jegantha.

Some others you might like: Sundering Growth, Thundermare, Verity Circle, Tithe, Phantom Steed, Corpse Knight, Lu Xun, Scholar General, Capture of Jingzhou

DrukenReaps on Need ideas for a flicker …

I would recommend just starting with EDHRec's Blink Theme page. I know it's maybe an obvious suggestion full of obvious cards but it'll give you a baseline to work from with few outright 'bad' options imo. https://edhrec.com/themes/blink

Adventure seemed like a neat idea but when they printed things like Rosethorn Acolyte.... I dunno, maybe there are some worthwhile? This one definitely isn't.

Emiel the Blessed would be solid, another great option would be Kodama of the East Tree.

If I may though. Since you're making a custom card here as the commander I'd recommend the commander have the ability to flicker/blink the other cards in the deck rather than necessarily being the target itself. There are 100s of cards with ETB and LTB triggers but only so many cards which blink a target or multiple targets.

So my own suggestion would be to remove Winnie the Pooh's ETB ability and put something like-

Sacrifice 2 food tokens: Exile target permanent until the end of the turn.

Or something along those lines. This is still flavorful to Winnie, he needs to eat before he adventures with a friend of course. This is just my suggestion due to a lack of blink effects compared to ETB effects. Take it or leave it as you choose.

xstaticx, thanks for the primer! I'll plan on looking through it for inspiration! I actually did add Peregrine Drake to go infinite with Emiel the Blessed and a draw creature to create infinite mana and set up turn loop with ewit and Walk the Aeons. I have a few tutors, so hopfully it's enough? I want the deck to be fairly powerful and have an "I win button" but also not so consistent that I'm constantly targeted. Thanks for the input!

Yo yo @ProminenceToBlack

The strategy you are referring to: flickering Derevi, Empyrial Tactician with Emiel the Blessed to untap Circle of Dreams Druid or Gaea's Cradle and generate infinite mana for Finale of Devastation...

It Is a very valid wincon that you can push fairly early or later on in the game as it's fairly easy to set up and can go off under most of our Stax or when a lot of resources from the table have already been expended to deal with you...

Now Devoted Druid and Swift Reconfiguration may seem interesting due to it being unaffected by summoning sickness. It does however not interact well with all our artifact hate like Collector Ouphe... While sure it works the same paired with a Finale of Devastation, I feel like it clutters the deck more with cards that aren't great on their own... Same could be said of Emiel though... Although the Unicorn can protect our stuff from time to time... But I'm pretty sure it could work given the fact we can tutor for both pieces fairly fast and easily.

Hokori, winter orb, static orb or stasis locks are The way ^^... <3

Thank you! (I got a sideboard as well if you're interested = 京 An illusion? (SideBoard) 京 = bit outdated but still handy...)

I know I haven't been most active on here anymore and haven't updated it at all indeed. Been playing her a lot though but have had a small dip in activity due to shops closing, and going broke but never stopped playing her since she came out... + just been playing her online... Won over hundreds of Commander events/leagues with her easily...

I'd like to keep the list as Cutthroat and Competitive as possible and not toy around with strategies that don't really compare like random blink, wizard-shell, etc...

Flashy wins are redundant for Derevi, and if you are consistently leaving gaps and misplaying you'll get blown out pretty fast. this primer still holds up to this day with minor tweaks that could increase its power a bit...

If the power of your meta is lacking though and not everyone is playing cEDH lists and BIS/META decks you'll need to adjust some cards and add more specific hate... No Tournament or League is the same if you have even the slightest info on what is going to show up or what is currently relevant. Going in blind this list still holds up perfectly fine though.

Cards that have been released and have been in and out of the list or are still in if you're interested:

The strategy you might be interested in is flickering Derevi, Empyrial Tactician with Emiel the Blessed to untap Circle of Dreams Druid or Gaea's Cradle and generate infinite mana for Finale of Devastation.
