Whenever an opponent plays a spell, you may reveal the top card of your library. If you do, counter that spell if it has the same converted mana cost as the revealed card.

Thank you for the suggestions! I will definitely consider AEther Barrier and Ashes of the Abhorrent those are really good flex card spots that I missed out on. The other one I was actually consider running is Energy Flux .
Counterbalance is in and out of the deck before, and is actually a flex spot. I value aura's a tad bit more in this build. If I was going a pure enchantress build I would actually consider adding this card along with Soothsaying .
Now there are actually a couple reasons why I chose not to run Mana Crypt and Sol Ring . Originally it was in the list, well at least Sol Ring was, I only have four Mana Crypts and they are in my cEDH decks. The times I did have it, it didn't benefit me when I was 'storming' off on my turns, it was a dead card almost all the time. I can't trigger off any of my enchantresses with it so it was cut. Alongside I run Stony Silence as well, I tutor for it pretty frequently due to my meta running plenty of artifacts. The list is tuned to pretty one shot people and outvalue people via attrition.
I hope that gives you my perspective!

AEther Barrier - While it doesn't help you further your voltron strategy, it does slow down your opponents, 1 mana every creature can be very detrimental to plenty decks, unless you find yourself facing other voltron decks.
Ana Sanctuary - A simple 3 mana enchantment that will buff Tuvasa, though the fact it triggers on upkeep might be a downside if you cast it the turn you plan to go off.
Ashes of the Abhorrent - A good graveyard-hate card.
Bonds of Mortality - If you find yourself having to deal with a lot of hexproof or indestructible creatures.
Chromatic Armor - Might be worthwhile to play
I don't fully understand why you run no Artifacts...there's some that are definitely worth playing like the staple, Sol Ring or Mana Crypt (If you've explained it in the primer, I must have missed it, in which case, my bad)
Counterbalance - If you're fighting stax, tell em to go shove it with this beauty
Hope this is of some use to you, +1

Run punisher effects such as Karmic Justice and Martyr's Bond . Also run Enchanted Evening which will wipe the board as well if they remove all your enchantments. Having threatening effects can often be a good deterrent. If you run a Sensei's Divining Top or Scroll Rack you could consider running Counterbalance as a reliable way to stop mass hate. Ice Cave is another option considering mass enchantment hate is primarily white and green which is in your color wheel.

I like this deck already; its a hilariously simple but daunting build and a great way to utilize Teferi!
However, such a straightforward approach leaves you vulnerable if anyone finds a good way to disrupt your ability to cast/utilize your little dudes. An example would be Isochron Scepter and Echoing Truth . With only 65 Persistent Petitioners , you'd be quite a problem in a 1v1 match, but I feel like multiplayer games would not go well; your mill would be spread pretty thin and you'd have no way to deal with anything that answers your single mechanic.
Since you're working with blue, I would suggest a Counterbalance , since that will be a near guarantee of you being able to counter all those crutch 2 drop spells that could screw you (thanks to your super narrow mana curve), like Echoing Truth or Aegis of the Gods ; I use a similar technique in my own mono-blue deck.
If you want to get these guys out as quickly as possible (which your commander seems to suggest), then you might also consider Thrumming Stone , a card I employ in my Shadowborn deck with incredible success!
Two final possibilities for you to consider would be Rings of Brighthearth to allow you to copy the activated abilities of your petitioners, or Altar of the Brood to increase your mill potential by taking advantage of the fact that you'll be playing a TON of tiny permanents, allowing you to aggressively mill even in a multiplayer format!

JohnnyCRO Thank you for reaching out to me and asking! I will definitely take a look at your list right after I finish up this post. I have yet to test this deck on paper because I am in the process of tuning it up before I take it to my meta. I opted for more of a combo/control shell rather than all-in stax like I originally wanted to because my meta wouldn't have taken lightly to heavy stax. There is a good mix of mid and high tier lists floating around in my meta, and they aren't quite fully optimized which gives me free range to try three card and even some four card combos that wouldn't be ideal in a cEDH meta which I appreciate. I'm still in the process of tweaking some things. I do have budget constraints, and some things in here are simply meta calls. Other than that, I do run greedier cards like Consecrated Sphinx and Narset Transcendent for example because they are more of "goodstuff" type cards that have more value in the presence of mid-tier decks. Often times, I've noticed that cEDH sacrifices a lot of value for speed. Stuff like Counterbalance and Mental Misstep lose reliable targets in my sort of meta for example.

Against other cEDH decks Counterbalance has a high chance of countering spells off blind flips as everyone should have very low curves, paired with top it might as well be a reusable counter for .
