This deck seems tailor-made for Essence Flux . It could replace or play alongside Cloudshift . As for other flicker effects, I've had moderate success with Eerie Interlude as a Ghostway that lets you keep what you need on the board. Focusing more on spirits, there's Supreme Phantom as another lord or Forbidding Spirit , Geist-Honored Monk , Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit , and Hanged Executioner as cards that might synergize with the exile theme. Less budget-friendly but still powerful includes are Spell Queller and Skyclave Apparition .

Yes this is an absolute legit strategy but hard to pull off consistently. You have two sets of cards you need. "Permanents with ETB triggers" & "Flicker Spells" If you draw only one of those sets, you are basically screwed. If you still want to try, it will work best if you splash a bit black or blue. (I think it is not worth to play in mono white)

Permanents with ETB trigger abuse - Journey to Nowhere , Tidehollow Sculler , Fiend Hunter , Oblivion Ring , Angel of Serenity

Creature Flicker - Cloudshift , Essence Flux , Ephemerate , Restoration Angel , Eldrazi Displacer , Justiciar's Portal , Momentary Blink

Permanent Flicker - Flicker of Fate , Blizzard Strix , Teferi's Time Twist

How about Essence Flux and/or Teferi's Time Twist to get two hits off a Spellseeker ?

You miss a ton of ramp. You have only 4 ramp pieces, while a deck wants a minimum of 8 with approx 38 lands. I suggest (budget in mind) adding Wayfarer's Bauble, Arcane Signet, Fellwar Stone Mind StoneAlso, remove both Trinket Mage and Tribute Mage. Having but 1-2targets for them to fetch really doesn't validate their use in this deck. If you go for the ramp suggestions I made, keeping Tribute Mage might be worth considering. When it comes to speed, your 4-slot is incredibly heavy, way to heavy. You could play some more removal in the form of cards like AEther Adept, Exclusion Mage etc. and more effects like Ghostly Flicker in the form of Essence Flux, Teferi's Time Twist Displace etc., which can be alot more powerful when combined with more instant and sorcery recovery like Archaeomancer, Salvager of Secrets and Shipwreck Dowser to repeatedly abuse your ETB triggers. Conjurer's Closet might be one of the few worthwhile more expensive flicker setup cards next to Thassa.

This looks like a fun deck! I would play it as is, but I'll still leave some card ideas in case anything sparks your interest. Since there are a couple of higher cost creatures, you might want to replace some with Veteran Warleader.

If you want to try to capitalize on your ETB triggers then you will want some cards that let you flicker your creatures. Essence Flux, Cloudshift, and Ephemerate are all one cost instants letting you do this. You might be able to save some creatures from dying using these as well.

If you're ok with just putting them back in your hand for extra benefits then Call to Heel lets you draw a card and Familiar's Ruse lets you counter a spell. There's also spells like Peel from Reality or Unsummon if you want to target the opponent.

Of course you could always replace some basics with multicolor pain lands or something like those Temple Gardens you got there. Other than that you might just want some more noncreature spells to give your deck some more versatility.

Looks good. Deadeye Navigator would let you keep unearthed creatures. Same with Identity Thief, Thassa, Deep-Dwelling, Essence Flux, Siren's Ruse, Teferi's Time Twist, Ghostly Flicker, Displace, Illusionist's Stratagem, Voidwalk, and Kaya's Ghostform. Changeling Berserker, Faceless Butcher, and Wormfang Drake work similarly and are pretty nice since they can be unearthed themselves.

Things like Archaeomancer and Peregrine Drake would go nicely with the above mentioned cards too.

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.
