To make the Deflected damage ability work properly, you'd need to change the wording slightly to "When damage is prevented this way, [ping something]".

If you do that, activating the ability causes a delayed trigger to go on the stack (it triggers when the activated creature would become damaged). You wouldn't choose a target for the redirected damage until that delayed trigger gets put on the stack.

If a 2/2 with this ability would take three simultaneous damage, as in your example above, then when state-based actions are next checked, it would die and the ability would go onto the stack at the same time. Then you'd get to choose a target for the deathtouch ping. If for some reason the attacker survived the deathtouch combat (like if it had First Strike), you could target and kill it with the delayed trigger ability. Only after your creature died though.

Companions work as normal in EDH. Your Commander counts as a card in your deck for the purposes of meeting a Companion's restriction. You can't meet Yoion's deck restrictions in EDH. You can still run it as a Commander instead.
