Most of the good blink is in blue, like Brago, King Eternal, Yarok, the Desecrated, and Thassa, Deep-Dwelling, but white still has some good blink. If you want repeatable blinking, you can run Conjurer's Closet, Angel of Condemnation, or Galepowder Mage.

The repeatable ones are a little more expensive mana wise, but if you want repeatable, you could put in Conjurer's Closet, Flickerform, Angel of Condemnation, Eldrazi Displacer, Galepowder Mage, and if you have the budget Emiel the Blessed.

zapyourtumor,funny enough, I already have Mimic Vat in the deck. Its only 1 of though and only in the sideboard for heavy removal/sac strategies and for sentimental reasons. I LOVE Mimic Vat. I couldn't figure out how to make a deck solely on Mimic Vat, but maybe some day...

Also, I used to use Glimmerpoint Stag and even Galepowder Mage in my builds, but Charming Prince kind of seemed to me like the better option. Sure its not removal, but its very flexible and costs 2 less.

As for Seance, check out my other decks Can you FEEL it? or Azorious Sundial. Seance requires much more graveyard filler cards like Bazaar Trademage and Ideas Unbound. Which is totally an amazing variant of a Sundial of the Infinite deck. As far as i'm concerned, that variant just needs the perfect creature to resurrect to be incredible.

Btw, I haven't found a way to make Chance for Glory and Glorious End work for any deck. I frankly haven't got any idea. I recently tried a variant of sundial that transformed from an esper build, see Grave timing ;), but I don't even see how to use Glorious End in a deck like that. Maybe i'll try a red variant with them again if Splinter Twin ever gets unbanned.

Personally I'd say Farhaven Elf over Wood Elves, but I agree- better picks than Fertilid. Also agreed on cutting Myr Battlesphere, Pride Sovereign, and Galepowder Mage.

However, Soulherder's dual use as a general value accumulator and a wincon sets it, imo, as a must-have for any blink deck. Blade of Selves might not be as good as, perhaps, Progenitor Mimic, Helm of the Host, or other cards that don't require you to attack to get copies.

Fertilid out, Wood Elves in?

Myr Battlesphere out, Deadeye Navigator in (unless you’re opposed to going infinite, but if you don’t run too many tutors it’s just good value.)

Cards like Soulherder, Pride Sovereign, and Galepowder Mage might be too slow/conditional to be effective. Pride sovereign is just a beater, which you may find lacklustre over time. Blade of Selves is a little expensive but I think it’s ridiculous in flicker builds.

One last thing to think about. You may not have enough mana to operate smoothly. You may want to consider adding 2-4 more lands, and possibly a couple more mana rocks to consistently be able to cast your spells. It depends on how your etb ramp works out though.
