Hallowed Respite

Sorcery

Exile target nonlegendary creature, then return it to the battlefield under its owner's control. If it entered under your control, put a +1/+1 counter on it. Otherwise, tap it.

Flashback (You may cast this from your graveyard for this card's flashback cost, then exile this.)

Also Hallowed Respite seems better than Momentary Blink here

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!

Well, in blue:

Lagrella, the Magpie seems abusable, Neoform gives you a nice creature tutor option in a way, Winterthorn Blessing / Hallowed Respite is nice "removal" and works with the persist. There's also Meddling Mage, Teferi, Time Raveler, and Unmoored Ego.

There's plenty of other value blue creatures as well.

Just a thought. I'm sure there's plenty of higher CMC stuff too, but I'm trying to keep it realistic. I think blue is the way to go if you wanted to add another color.

There's other obscure options like shaving black and using something like Greater Gargadon as your sacrifice outlet, you could explore that too.

amicdeep thanks for you're comment, good insights

Flickerwisp and Reflector Mage are strong cards but Venser, Shaper Savant putting the permanent/spell back into their hand with instant speed is just harder for my opponent to deal with even though it does cost more mana. Will test them anyway though, you never know.

The flip lands could be a very nice combat trick but am trying to avoid enter tapped lands as the 3 and 4 drops are just so important to have on time.

Professor of Symbology would be a great card against slower decks to find everything when you need it but to have mainboard might just be a bit too slow but I will definitely test it mainboard.

Hallowed Respite I really like a flashback blink spell to accelerate ETB value but at sorcery and 2 mana and only non-legendary I'm not sure.

Lavinia of the Tenth I don't know how I missed this card it seems excellent in this deck and could replace the extra copies of Cleansing Nova as it deals with all nonland permanents, very nice find.

From testing I think just a Rogue's Passage giving unblockable works just as good in the situation you would want a manland and doesn't enter tapped or need snowlands.

looking at this from a super budget pov there are a couple of cards i would seriouly consider

Flickerwisp has been printed into the ground and with soulherder on the field he gets rid of your opponents needed land, plainswalker or creature for the entirety of there turn. hes also a good card to flicker your own stuff and is a solid flying attacker. most importanly hes been printed into the ground the last few years and sits between 5-25 cents (if you run a couple flip lands like Umara Wizard  Flip or Skyclave Cleric  Flip and target them with the flicker effect it turns them back into creatures for some solid board advantage or as a combat trick with Ephemerate

Professor of Symbology with a wishboard of

1x Environmental Sciences, 1x Mascot Exhibition, 2x Reduce to Memory

can get you out of most situations reduce kills anything for good science means you can keep a 2 land hand with prof and not regret it and mascot is a solid wincon if the games gets grindy. also prof is a solid looter if you get all your wishboard cards and the whole paxkage is under $2 (i still use this in my $100 mono white flicker list, and the deck has top 3 a few time and this card is the decks stoneforge mystic and is defiantly the next best thing)

1-2 copys of Lavinia of the Tenth this is a hard lock with soulherder for many deck. and pro red and the deck having instant speed flicker spells card be very difficult for some decks to deal with.

Hallowed Respite may be worth running as a 2 off, its a flicker spell that pumps or taps down problematic blocker and can be done a secound time late in the game when you need the value the most.

if you can find it in the budget id try very hard to run 4 Reflector Mage its basically the reson to run blue (alongside soulherder) for none budget versions of this list, and ist much much cheaper that Skyclave Apparition

on the oust issue this may seem strange but it may be worth considering Baffling End for 2 resons, 1 it can be flickered by flicker wisp or similar to exile extra things. 2 they stay permanently exiled, i wont be ideal for every situation but may well work for some.

if your planning on upgrading to moder staple id recomed 2 copys of Winds of Abandon before path. 1 its a solid path effect. 2 in the mid-lat game its a one sided boardwipe and there for can take the slots for cleansing nova while being more useful (also its a boardwipe that exiles meaning if you have a soulherder on the field it can easily be a 5-5/6-6 after casting this)

the secound cards id upgrade is Skyclave Apparition its hands down the most powerful card im my $100 version of the deck and is often my best draw. this and a Ephemerate or soulherder and you basically have a board wipe

if you do end up running 4 path 2 winds, then it can be worth running Knight of the White Orchid which makes Glacial Floodplain or Irrigated Farmland worth running (they also work great with and trigger Port Town)

id also consdider adding a manland to your landbase. on a budget you have either Frostwalk Bastion, Faerie Conclave. if you have a little more then Cave of the Frost Dragon is probably worth the upgrade. and if you willing to spend a little more on a modern staple Celestial Colonnade is the cheapest its ever been in the history of the game $3.5/$4 ish and definatly worth 2-3 of.

hope one or two of these suggestions help a little

Soulherder seems like a card that would have a blast blinking all those splicers. Momentary Blink and Hallowed Respite both also seem like very good cards for this deck.

Maybe a single copy of Endless Sands and/or Safe Haven as meme options to reactivate the splicers' abilities?

(Tried to suugest only things that are very cheap and synergise with your deck)

The fact that Hallowed Respite can be used to tap down blockers improves its utility, in a way Ephemerate could never do.
