Ghostly Flicker

Instant

Exile two target artifacts, creatures and/or lands you control, then return those cards to the battlefield under your control.

Kodama of the East Tree would be a good card for the deck. Seems like a good way to get a lot of stuff into play very quickly. Plus you can run it in a line with Felidar Retreat (this card is just good with lands) and one of the ravinca bounce lands to make infinite 2/2 tokens. Also, given that you're leaning into a lands theme, replacing stuff like Thran Dynamo with Skyshroud Claim and Thought Vessel with Nature's Lore / Three Visits / Farseek will give your deck more consistency and more late game value (since you run cards like Mirari's Wake).

Also, stuff like Momentary Blink is ok, but Ghostly Flicker is better as it lets you hit two things and forms yet another infinite mana line with Eternal Witness and Peregrine Drake.

Peregrine Drake along with an Archaeomancer type effect goes infinite with Ghostly Flicker if you're into that. Peregrine Drake can also generate a ton of mana over time with Soulherder / Flickerwisp / Oji. Also, Illusionist's Stratagem may be worth considering in place of Ghostly Flicker - If you're hitting your infinite combo with Ghostly Flicker, it can feel bad to not actually win with it. I run both instants in my Esper blink deck, so I can draw into the Ghostly Flicker and then cease casting Stratagem and thus avoid self-mill.

Aminatou, the Fateshifter goes infinite with Felidar Guardian, and also is itself a cheap flicker-er.

I have included Seedtime in my decks, and have yet to cast it for a first time. It's just too coincidental of a circumstance to have it in hand, 2 mana open, and an opponent casting a spell that is blue during my turn.

Savage Summoning I have considered for a temur Ghostly Flicker(+Dualcaster Mage) combo deck, so you can start the flicker loop, make infinite mana, probably draw your deck, and will be able to flash in a payoff creature (like one that deals damage on etb, I had the commander, Omnath, Locus of the Roil in mind) without stopping the loop. A specific solution for finishing the game while you're already drawing your deck, that's how niche the card actually is '^^

Nice brew! I find Lavinia of the Tenth does a ton of work in my Esper blink deck - maybe test it out in place of Exclusion Mage, or Barrin?

Also, what do you think of Cavalier of Dawn to replace Meteor Golem? It works well enough for me in Esper, so I would think would be easy enough to cast in dual color. IME, giving someone a 3/3 body is 100% worth saving the 2 mana.

And finally - Ghostly Flicker and/or Illusionist's Stratagem could be solid includes if you want to change up how your "value" works: Since you have lots of creatures that return instants/sorceries, it goes from with Momentary Blink to , but repeatable as long as you have Archaeomancer or friends out. These also fill a different role than Semester's End since they return the targets to the field immediately, and not at the next end step. (Can also go infinite mana/draw with Peregrine Drake as the second target).

Lastly... (I promise, lol) how well do you find Mind Flayer works in blink, out of curiosity? I run Agent of Treachery and I find if it isn't immediately removed after casting, I pretty much win.

Happy blinking!

I have a Dragon tribal deck that has Renari, Merchant of Marvels and Dragon Cultist as my commander and background. I recently played a few games with it and once I had 2 dragons they became a target. I know this is what comes with big creatures. So my question is what are some way to protect them? The deck theme is around casting dragons at instant speed and blinking them for extra value. I can see the blinking as somewhat of Protection. But so fat I have; Deadeye Navigator, Displacer Kitten, Essence Flux, Ghostly Flicker, March of Swirling Mist, Planar Incision, Teferi's Time Twist, Vanishing, Vodalian Illusionist. Let no if I am missing something in the blink category or if there are other forms of protect I can use. Here is a link to my decklist.

If you want to cut costs i'd put in another couple of blink cards like that Ghostly Flicker. Free dragon tokens are nice.

Spark Double could enter the battlefield as a copy of Miirym and provide a token copy of Miirym and you'd be getting 3 tokens per dragon played.

Infinite Reflection could give you LOTS of Miiryms
