Armada Wurm? Ephemerate would make double tokens by flickering wurm/spider which would be better than Wake the Reflections

For sideboard maybe Sundering Growth? You'll still get clapped by Ratchet Bomb/Engineered Explosives though

Yeah that's true, I didn't think of that. Upkeep Ephemerate?

Also, side note, Wall of Omens is so good.

Essence Flux,Ephemerate and Cloudshift do the same (or better in some cases) than Flicker of Fate, Justiciar's Portal and Teferi's Time Twist for 1 less mana.

Phyrexian Metamorph: ETB creature to copy a Nyxbloom Ancient, Gilded Lotus, Sol Ring, Savannah Lions. Whatever your heart desires.

Solemn Simulacrum: 5 basics in the deck. Finds them.

Agent of Treachery: Usually targets the most expensive cards on the table. Masterpiece Mana Crypt or a Sheoldred. Taking that Mana Crypt.

Bloom Tender: Mana dork.

Charming Prince: ETB bounce creature. Also sets up the top of the deck for a Golos activation.

Deadeye Navigator: Soulbonds with most ETB creatures listed here. Favorite, Resolute Archangel.

Eternal Witness: Returns fetch lands, removal, Aminatou's Augury to hand.

Faeburrow Elder: Mana dork.

Progenitor Mimic: Imagine having a few copies of Nyxbloom or Terror of the Peaks.

Reclamation Sage: Destroys those pesky signets.

Wayward Swordtooth: Extra land dork.

Emiel the Blessed: If you want to have fun with your opponents. Golos out in play. Have enough mana to activate Golos twice. But, instead, you play Emiel. Pay three to activate Emiel 4 or 5 or 6 times to flicker Golos in and out. Find a bunch of lands. Amulet of Vigor out. Those lands come in untapped. Then you tap them for things.

Keruga, the Macrosage: Draws a bunch of cards.

Kurkesh, Onakke Ancient: If 1 activation from Golos isn't enough. Double it.

Maelstrom Wanderer: More than 90 percent of the deck is CMC 7 or less. Some free spells when this ETB's with Golos activation. Or you can just cast it normally. Whatever you want.

Yarok, the Desecrated: Double triggered abilities. Zacama entering is a wild ride.

Zacama, Primal Calamity: Untaps lands. Destroys artifacts/enchantments. Kills opponents.

Zirda, the Dawnwaker: Why pay 7 to activate Golos. Pay 5.

Thassa, Deep-Dwelling: EOT bounce.

Guardian Project: Another little draw engine. Awesome with ETB triggers.

Mirari's Wake: Mana doubler.

Mystic Remora: Draw.

Omniscience: Let's start a new game.

Arcane Signet, Chromatic Lantern, Commander's Sphere, Izzet Signet, Mana Crypt, Sol Ring, Thran Dynamo, Chromatic Orrery: Mana Rocks.

DeepestTrashThing on Can you use Ephemerate to …

Flickering with Cloudshift exiles a creature and returns that card to the battlefield regardless of if the card is still a creature or not.

Does flickering with Ephemerate work the same way or does the manifested card remail exiled because Ephemerate expects a creature to be returned to the battlefield?
