Let's say my commander gets exiled by Colfenor's Urn , and I choose not to return it to the command zone. I then shuffle it into my library with Riftsweeper . Will I be able to search my library for my commander?

I believe the answer is no, going off Neotrup's comment, since it left the exile zone and entered a non-visible zone. It will still have counted for the three-count for the Urn.

Mana_Mythic_Legendary Exiling creatures before they can hit the board is the best removal. I remember once getting someone's Craterhoof Behemoth and Avenger of Zendikar it was fun. Also most people don't run cards like Riftsweeper . The only down side is that he costs 3.

For reference, this is my "one-man-army"-deck: Seasons' Approach: How the seasons go by...

I've had some awesome games with it. The center-piece is this eternal loop that I can keep rolling over infinite turns. I guess this is what you should aim for as well. Creatureless decks really need a repeatable way to gain massive value to keep up with decks with creatures, as the creatures themself are staying value. I'm not sure how you could do that here, but Riftsweeper and Shreds of Sanity seem promising.

little over kill
but you could add another layer of protection by adding
Pull from Eternity to get Riftsweeper back if it gets exiled
and
Firestorm so that you can reset your deck at instant speed in case someone tries to make you draw while your deck is empty
that should be enough layers to answer anything

you just want to torture people into quitting ?
1st. Take 0rcs suggestion to load up your deck with mana loops and tutors
2nd. use the endless mana to cast your commander and draw your deck
3rd. Cast Isochron Scepter Imprinting Silence and then cast Unwinding Clock and any sacrifice creature outlet
4th. end step clean up keep Teferi's Protection , Riftsweeper , Cyclonic Rift , and 4 counter spells, make the last card you discard Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre to reset the deck

use Isochron Scepter / Silence & Unwinding Clock to lock them out of the game
if they try to respond to silence being put on the stack counter there response
if you cant counter there response cast Teferi's Protection
then at your next turn Cyclonic Rift to undo all there accomplishments
then cast Riftsweeper to reset Teferi's Protection
rinse repeat only difference now is if you need to reset Teferi's Protection just sac Riftsweeper then use kenny to put him back before you draw your deck

tada now your an asshole :)

elijahhagler Hi nice to see that my old deck still brings viewers :D. But in this build I did not run any graveyard prot. But I have few in mind if you lose your needed combo pieces like Pull from Eternity and Riftsweeper . Another way to "Protect" your graveyard is to give yourself Hexproof. Then they cannot target you and usually your GY. Here some cards Ivory Mask , Orbs of Warding Witchbane Orb , Leyline of Sanctity , Sigarda, Heron's Grace , Solitary Confinement , Shalai, Voice of Plenty , True Believer , Aegis of the Gods

This is so cool!!! Your alters are incredible. Have you considered cards like Pull from Eternity , Riftsweeper , Sundial of the Infinite , Murk Strider , and Void Attendant ? They interact nicely with Roon's ability.
