Have you considered these cards? Cloudshift, Ephemerate, Flicker of Fate, Justiciar's Portal, Slip On the Ring, Acrobatic Maneuver, Scrollshift, Distinguished Conjurer, Gilraen, Dunedain Protector, Livio, Oathsworn Sentinel

After you declare Aurelia as an attacker, you can respond to her triggered ability with a Cloudshift effect to flicker her, making her a new object. Then when she attacks during the 2nd combat, her ability triggers again to get you a third combat. The creatures who have cloudshift abilities are extra nice because the number of extra combats you get is only limited by the amount of mana you have available to spend on their abilities.

I'd start with one of the 2 Flicker of Fate seeings as you can only run 1 in Commander :)

Your mana curve is a bit high too, so I'd look at one of the 7 mana cards to cut. Probably Fated Return since you can do the same thing for much less mana. Though I just noticed that you aren't running any of Reanimate, Animate Dead, or Necromancy and the price of the deck is pretty low, so this may be a budget deck and the "same thing for much less mana" argument may not be a good one.

Eerie Interlude can be neat?.... Flicker of Fate could also be nice?

Heya, nice to see another Arena player on here, so +1 just for that!

If this were me, I'd make this Esper-colored (Black/Blue/White). Adding White opens up a lot in terms of flicker effects, including (not limited to): Cloudshift, Ephemerate, Charming Prince, Flicker of Fate, Hallowed Respite, which would make re-casting them unnecessary since I see you're using stuff like Unsummon to work that mechanic.

It also opens up some other options like Meddling Mage who can be a real fun one to bounce and re-name cards with to mess with your opponent. This effect combos well with Black's Thoughtseize type cards and a couple blue Counterspell effects like Test of Talents which let you look at your opponent's hand to better pick things to name.

Other rare Wildcard options for Esper colors are Raffine's Tower and Fabled Passage to help secure a good tri-colored mana base, Void Rend for reliable universal permanent destruction, or just search through White/Blue gold cards as there is a LOT to choose from in the way of flicker / enter the battlefield effects for those colors.

Either way, hope to see ya around in the shuffler, or add me if you feel like hashing out some more decks and/or playtesting! Good luck!

We've had Flicker of Fate and Thassa, Deep-Dwelling in Standard for the past two years, Strixhaven grave us Semester's End and in AFR, Teleportation Circle was added to satisfy ETB abuse strategies for a year to come.

So your abandoment issues seem slightly misplaced, DemonDragonJ, phasing will not replace flickering, and the tools exist in every format to enjoy ETBs, even in Standard, even post rotation.

Sprite Dragon is much much better than Goblin Arsonist . The targeting spells could be a lot better as well. Shatterskull Smashing  Flip is almost strictly better than Volcanic Geyser , Infuriate , Opt , Crash Through , Shell Shield , and Spell Strike are good cards to be using as triggers for your abilities.

Flicker of Fate . You don't really want to be bouncing tokens or things with counters on them, so this is a bad protection spell. Sejiri Shelter  Flip, Feat of Resistance , or the aforementioned Shell Shield are much better. Cleansing Wildfire and Go for Blood are too expensive and don't give any extra synergy. Go For Blood doesn't even replace itself. In general, focus on cheaper spells and less countermagic. You don't want to end up in a control-y game, you want to survive the first few turns, then explode with Goldspan/Sprite Dragon + Orvar.

DanMcSharp - Flicker of Fate + Hakka, Whispering Raven is so freaking fun. Check out that second screenshot lol

Let me know if you have any ideas but it's working better than ever now, despite no one drop
