When the card affected by Teferi's Time Twist returns to the battlefield does it return with summoning sickness

So I found this on the worlds best source, reddit. "The only ones I found that allow you to flicker your own lands are Teferi's Time Twist and Oath of Teferi . So for the low price of 2 mana and a card, you can now turn Akoum Teeth into Akoum Warrior  Flip, a red 4/5 creature with trample and a +1/+1 counter from Teferi's Time Twist." So yes, Thassa, Deep-Dwelling could flicker Valki, God of Lies  Flip into the other side. You would also be able to choose an option with Charming Prince .

Yes this is an absolute legit strategy but hard to pull off consistently. You have two sets of cards you need. "Permanents with ETB triggers" & "Flicker Spells" If you draw only one of those sets, you are basically screwed. If you still want to try, it will work best if you splash a bit black or blue. (I think it is not worth to play in mono white)

Permanents with ETB trigger abuse - Journey to Nowhere , Tidehollow Sculler , Fiend Hunter , Oblivion Ring , Angel of Serenity

Creature Flicker - Cloudshift , Essence Flux , Ephemerate , Restoration Angel , Eldrazi Displacer , Justiciar's Portal , Momentary Blink

Permanent Flicker - Flicker of Fate , Blizzard Strix , Teferi's Time Twist

Eddy_Khil I actually had those in this list at one point, but I realized that the flicker effects were not actually that useful, since I get the trigger from orvar anyways. I'd rather get an untap, tutor, or draw, over something that makes orvar redundant.

Also Teferi's Time Twist is unfortunate since it returns at the end step, hard to utilize some triggers.

How about Essence Flux and/or Teferi's Time Twist to get two hits off a Spellseeker ?

You miss a ton of ramp. You have only 4 ramp pieces, while a deck wants a minimum of 8 with approx 38 lands. I suggest (budget in mind) adding Wayfarer's Bauble, Arcane Signet, Fellwar Stone Mind StoneAlso, remove both Trinket Mage and Tribute Mage. Having but 1-2targets for them to fetch really doesn't validate their use in this deck. If you go for the ramp suggestions I made, keeping Tribute Mage might be worth considering. When it comes to speed, your 4-slot is incredibly heavy, way to heavy. You could play some more removal in the form of cards like AEther Adept, Exclusion Mage etc. and more effects like Ghostly Flicker in the form of Essence Flux, Teferi's Time Twist Displace etc., which can be alot more powerful when combined with more instant and sorcery recovery like Archaeomancer, Salvager of Secrets and Shipwreck Dowser to repeatedly abuse your ETB triggers. Conjurer's Closet might be one of the few worthwhile more expensive flicker setup cards next to Thassa.

So far Teferi's Time Twist has been good. it's a pretty strong protective piece generally, and the +1/+1 counter on return for creatures makes it doubly so. But it's also good to be able to protect something like Mirage Mirror or Grave Pact in a pinch. it even helps vs a board wipe since it exiles until EoT.

It's a card I've definitely been glad to have added. I would recommend it.

If you were confused by my "considered cards" section notes, I meant that I wasn't sure if Unstable Obelisk would need to go back in or not.
