Roon of the Hidden Realm is a respectable 4/4 vigilance trampler with the Rhino and Soldier creature subtypes, and while the former may not matter too much there's lots of cards that care about Soldiers for Roon of the Hidden Realm to interact with. Let's be honest though, you aren't going to choose to run Roon of the Hidden Realm as your commander for its body, but the sweet flickering effect you're able to abuse.
Roon of the Hidden Realm can save one of your creatures from a removal spell, however you'll get a lot more mileage out of it by targeting creatures with "enters the battlefield" abilities. Armada Wurm, Trostani's Summoner, Sphinx of Uthuun, Thragtusk, and Banisher Priest all make fine additions to any deck seeking to take advantage of Roon of the Hidden Realm. Because you'll be flickering your creatures often, cards with an ability that triggers when a creature enters or leaves the battlefield, such as Trostani, Selesnya's Voice, may also warrant an inclusion. There's a plethora of creatures to abuse alongside Roon of the Hidden Realm. Will you draw a massive amount of cards with Prime Speaker Zegana or exile threats with Luminate Primordial? Don't forget to throw in Deadeye Navigator.
