The deck seems really slow. I'd suggest adding blue for Opt and other card draw. Also if you add blue you can use Riptide Chimera

I got some new stuff!

Riptide Chimera as the commander of the PDH(U) Bouncy Auras deck.

Hateful Eidolon as the commander of the PDH(B) - She mostly hates your creatures deck.

Have you considered using bounce or blink effects such as Trusted Advisor and Thassa, Deep-Dwelling to reuse the Aether Theorist/Thief? Shimmerwing Chimera/Riptide Chimera might be able to accomplish a similar set up with Aether Meltdown. Hope this helps.

Coward_Token, As it weird as it sounds, I gotta admit that sounds like a cool deck idea! This link gives you a good start for what can be used to return things to your hand, and it makes me think if it's better to use Sisay, Weatherlight Captain to get Heidar, Rimewind Master, to use Zur the Enchanter to get Words of Wind/Riptide Chimera, or Isperia the Inscrutable to grab Riptide Chimera/Shimmerwing Chimera/Tidespout Tyrant.

ClockworkSwordfish Thank you for the awesome suggestion! I ran upstairs to check if I had a Riptide Chimera and I did! Never thought to put this perfect card into the deck. Glad to see we are on the same page with Rankle, that was the one card that I definitely had on the fence.

It's kind of a janky choice, but I can't help but notice that Riptide Chimera checks all the boxes. He himself is an enchantment, is a flyer who gets the bonus from Alela, and most importantly can bounce one of your enchantments every turn to ensure you always have one to play. I'd probably run him over, say, Rankle, who has a comparable body but I assume is mostly in for flavour reasons.

Thanks for the feedback, Epochalyptic! On Riptide Chimera , it's flavour text applies indeed, but why floodtide serpent? I personally think it would mess up my curve a little, I don't want too many fivedrops and it's just a 4/4 without evasion as well... I can't really think of anything I'd find worth taking out, though obviously, I'm still open to any suggestions at all. What should I take out accordingly to you for Floodtide Serpent ?
