Ephemerate

Instant

Exile target creature you control, then return it to the battlefield under its owner's control.

Rebound (If you cast this spell from your hand, exile it as it resolves. At the beginning of your next upkeep, you may cast this card from exile without paying its mana cost.)

Cheap-o flicker shenanigans with two beast of cards (quite literally). Basic idea is to get either Siege Rhino or Thragtusk on the field, protect them with flicker effects from Restoration Angel and Ephemerate or use them offensively. Removal in form of Despark and Mythos of Nethroi to get rid of basically anything. Grisly Salvage to fuel the graveyard, dig for a Rhino or Thrag (most of the time) or early game land drop to stay on the curve. Unburial Rites to make use of the Salvage's graveyard part. Turn 3 is the weakest, which we hopefully either skip with Fertile Ground or make use of with Underworld Connections

Nice list : )

I don't have a Roon deck, but I do play some flickery things, so a few maybe cards that I can recommend, just take it with a grain of salt because I don't know for sure.

Eldrazi Displacer is crazy good at flickering but you would need more colorless utility lands and it can get a little dicey

Teleportation Circle can be a great way to reuse etb effects. It doesn't give you the versatility of like Ephemerate that can protect your creatures too, but it is great for hitting more and more etbs.

Glorious Protector in play is sometimes worse than Restoration Angel but sometimes way better too. Having a few really good creatures under the protector can make opponents just not want to attack into you because you have a decent blocking body that you want to send to the yard.

Guardian of Faith doesn't hit all your etbs again, but it does a great job of protecting your board and can be really great at the right time.

Sigrid, God-Favored is flash removal that you can flicker to find a new target.

Kodama of the East Tree could also turn your blinks into insane value, and there is always the classic Craterhoof Behemoth as a finisher.

So, not sure if those help, but just throwing some ideas around at it : )

Decisive Denial works based on power, not effective power, so you're only really using the counterspell mode. In that case, I'd suggest Dovin's Veto or Disdainful Stroke or Bant Charm.

Archetype of Courage and Archetype of Endurance aren't super good value for the mana you put in. If you want increased combat effectiveness, there are toughness buffs, and if you want protection, that are counterspells or targeted protections like Ephemerate or Dive Down or Simic Charm or Resolute Watchdog

Turn to Frog is not a very exciting removal effect if you're in white and could just be running Swords to Plowshares. Same for the tapdown of Winterthorn Blessing, or the delayed value of Fall of the Impostor. Beast Within or Generous Gift are also premier removal.

You have a few off-theme creatures I think you won't much like: Disciplined Duelist works off power, Horizon Chimera gains a little life which is pretty low value overall, same for Lunarch Veteran  Flip. Rootcoil Creeper and Llanowar Scout aren't too bad, but I think there are probably better ramp effects for you.

Into the Wilds is kind of a slow and unreliable card advantage effect. I would usually prefer something like Shamanic Revelation or Collective Unconscious or Lifecrafter's Bestiary.

Aqueous Form and Staggering Insight are best on little creatures that attack a lot. You will often struggle to let your creatures attack at all, so I don't recommend them.

Cathar's Shield and Spidersilk Net are pretty low impact buffs. If you really want this effect, there's Slagwurm Armor.

Traveler's Amulet or Dromoka Monument aren't too exciting when you're in green and could have Vine Trellis or Wall of Roots or Rampant Growth.

Pledge of Unity and Brave the Sands are okish team buffs, but you can do better. Bar the Door and Solidarity are a little more on synergistic for your deck.

Slaughter the Strong is crazy strong in your deck!

4 The Ozolith + 4 Ephemerate instead of Brave the Elements and some of the sorcery feels interesting, thanks !

Some suggestions:

  • Your mana curve is extremely high, it's going to lead to most your games being very slow/clumsy. Most decks can only normally justify running 4 cards costing 4-or-more mana. Assuming you're wanting to center the deck around Thragtusk, i'd suggest playing a playset of those, and nothing else that costs 4-or-more mana.

  • Ephemerate is much stronger than Cloudshift. Also, if you do run Ephemerate, consider also adding in Eternal Witness (lets you keep recurring the Ephemerate every turn to reuse it indefinitely).

  • a lot of your cards here don't really add any synergy. For example, Crocanura isn't really doing anything to help your gameplan here. Similarly, you have a bunch of cards that only gain life... i'd be very weary about such cards, as lifegain is one of the very weakest mechanics in Magic, and unless you're getting a LOT more value than just lifegain, these cards aren't worth it (i'm referring to the likes of Rhox Faithmender, and weak payoffs like Trelasarra, Moon Dancer specifically)

Spell_Slam thanks for the suggestions! I had all the same doubts and you really killed it with the cards! I actually forgot about Coiling Oracle, Sunlance and Growth Spiral, these are all great suggestions! I might add more Ephemerate, Forest and Island as you said for the mana base
