Brago, King Eternal
There hasn't been as much support for the flickering/blink style of deck in the last couple of blocks. That's probably because it got so much support in the years leading up to those blocks, culminating with Conspiracy and Brago here. In a deck with lots of comes-into-play abilities, Brago offers a very simple bargain: get him through in combat once, and in turn receive enough reuses to win two or three matches. And in blue and white, that's surprisingly easy to pull off. He's going to be an enormous target the first two times he's cast or even more, but you're playing The Flickering Deck: it's hard not to generate card advantage with such a deck.
Constructed: 3/5
Casual: 4/5
Limited: 4/5
Multiplayer: 4/5
EDH/Commander: 4/5

Another card never reviewed here, somehow. Anyway, Brago's deck basically builds itself. insert ETB effects, swing, flicker, repeat. It's a pretty hard deck to beat when it gets going, and it gets going fast at turn 4 (with the right hand, of course). It's not hard to see why it's probably one of the best EDH decks out there right now
