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.

Conjurer's Closet, Essence Flux, Ghostly Flicker. If you use an Isochron Scepter you could even attach something like the Essence Flux to it for repeatable blinking.

Also consider cards like Elixir of Immortality to help in the same way your Kozilek does in terms of decking yourself.

Flicker or blink effects can work very well to defend Bruna too. eg:

Aquamoeba can help you discard all your auras so you can equip them for free. So can Cephalid Inkshrouder.

If you want to discard and gain something in return (you greedy git) you have things like these:

These are but mere suggestions for stuff you may want to consider!

Some stuff that looks kinda underwhelming to me at first glance:

  • Burglar Rat Discard one card groupslug can hurt opponents' tempo, but seems a bit lack luster beyond turns 2-3, & can help decks like Alesha.

  • Plague Mare Softening up other boards and removing other creatuers sounds good. Unless you're consistently getting multiple ETBs per turn, seems a little lacking.

  • Essence Flux or Teferi's Time Twist. I'd be keep Essence Flux to keep curve lower to the ground. Time Twist counter is nice for some extra punch, but could be used to slot in a counter spell (that's just me tho).

  • Orc Sureshot Feels like it needs multiple ETBs to remove something, but I can see how it would be more for softening a target. Single creature target also feels a lackluster, especially compared to Plague Mare.

  • Sailor of Means I think Pitiless Plunderer could fit better. Sailor also seems like it would compete with other creatures that might have multiple ETB spams

Ephemerate, Essence Flux, Justiciar's Portal, Momentary Blink all have:

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

With so many other options I'd consider adding more effects.

Essence Flux is the cheapest+easiest way to restart Spellseeker loops if let's say you're on the 2UB turn 2 play and someone Dispel s your Culling the Weak . You cast Essence Flux targeting Spellseeker and you get 2 more tutor triggers for 1U.

Retraced Image is much more of an "in testing" card. The thought is being able to get wizards into play when you have a token copy on the field. This usually happens if you have a bounce spell in hand and bounce Spellseeker in response to something like Swords to Plowshares with tutors still on the stack. It also has even narrower uses like accelerating land drops if an opponent has the same land on the battlefield you have in hand, or discounting popular wizards like Dark Confidant or Spellseeker .
