Boseiju, Who Shelters All Discussion

Amulet of Vigor is a neat tech, but the biggest issue is that Azorius Chancery, (along with the two other bounce lands) are absolutely and entirely unplayable in cEDH. The most important turns in cEDH are the first three, so each and every mana cannot be wasted. Otherwise you will lose the game to a turn three Demonic Consultation+Thassa's Oracle or Food Chain deck. Lands that enter the battlefield tapped must offer an unbelievably powerful effect (such as Boseiju, Who Shelters All), otherwise the mana inefficiency is too significant a cost.
Beyond that, you also want to assess the function of each card outside of the combo in which it is used. Cards that are useless outside of the combo (like Laboratory Maniac or Thassa's Oracle) are not ideal to run. Many decks choose to do so because they need to win, and these are very compact, but if we can avoid it, we will.
The reason I mention this is because Jeskai Barricade and Deputy of Acquittals don't offer any value outside of the combo. In our Cloudstone Curio line, it requires fewer land requirements and fewer creature requirements; Not only that, but it requires cards that we already want to play. It doesn't make sense to play cards specifically for combos, when instead we can play combos that layer into our deck with the cards we already want to be playing.
Hopefully that explanation makes sense.

You have a lot of basic lands and lands that enter tapped, if you have the budget I would invest in better mana fixing lands like Blooming Marsh, Botanical Sanctum, Breeding Pool, Exotic Orchard, ]Fabled Passage, Morphic Pool, Overgrown Tomb, Path of Ancestry, Reflecting Pool, Sunken Hollow, and Watery Grave would make the deck that much faster.
Some lands with great utility, again if you have the budget, Boseiju, Who Shelters All will help stop your spells get countered, as well as when it is multiplied by the likes of Nyxbloom Ancient you have 3 of that kind of mana to use on 3 different spells to keep from being countered. Cabal Coffers and Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx are both great ways to get tons of mana for your spells. And finally, Alchemist's Refuge gives all of your spells flash so when you have Seedborn Muse on the battlefield, you now have no limits on what you can cast.

Lets say I have 5 experience counters. If my opponent has a such as Dovescape, can I use Boseiju, Who Shelters All to make something such as a Temporal Fissure uncounterable so I can remove the Dovescape, or is this not possible due to the Fissure only costing 1 blue due to the reduction cost from Mizzix of the Izmagnus?

Hoobynobber7395 also, it is sorta pricey but it is worth it for this deck in particular. Boseiju, Who Shelters All is an auto include for me. Ensuring my spells can't be countered secures a win very quickly.

I would consider Prosperity in this list specifically for Win Con 1, since it's a little cheaper and in a pinch you could politic it for the table and just draw a ton of cards but also get a big token.
Also, 33 lands is a little light here. I'd try to add at least 3 more. Since it seems pretty spell heavy, Boseiju, Who Shelters All could be solid here, Opulent Palace for mana fixing in your colors on a budget, etc., Mage-Ring Network could be good for extra mana on your X drops.
Also Parallel Lives effects for the cast trigger would double the counters on one token, but (unless I'm wrong) wouldn't put the counters on the copied token- causing a 0/0 to die as a state-based action. Might want to consider Primal Vigor here instead to get more on the counters for the first token, but I would suggest cutting this for extra lands since you seem light on them, big time.

Alright, all very valid points. If you're set to focus on speed and all in on this particular combo, it might be the right shell for Boseiju, Who Shelters All, although a land that only gives colorless and enters tapped is not so appealing. Would something like Pull from Eternity make you less soft to GY hate or is that too niche? It would mean you can be a little bit more liberal with what you exile during Breach turns.

As Foretold can be a great way to start free casting counters, then you spend mana on draw and wincons.
Arcane Laboratory might be used to "counter" any extra spells people have. You only have to worry about one spell a turn.
Lands: You mana base can use some work. Myriad Landscape can help ramp if you sacrifice turn 1. Boseiju, Who Shelters All can help prevent counter wars. Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx breaks even with azami but might not be great...
That's all I can think of! I built a Baral deck a while back: Mr. Blue Sky | Baral EDH. Check it out, you might find something you like!

I’m building this deck and appreciate the thinking put into it. What would you think of Boseiju, Who Shelters All as protection for casting Ad Nauseum and Insidious Dreams, among other sorceries and instants?
