Crazymadhatter DO YOU THINK I HIT THE MARK WITH THE SIDEBOARD? ALSO, I TOOK OUT THE Enchanted EveningS AS YOU STATED ABOVE, THERES NOT A WHOLE LOT OF MAINBOARD ENCHANTMENT HATE IN THE META RIGHT NOW SO I DONT REALLY NEED IT TO BE EFFECTIVE. INSTEAD I ADDED ONE MORE Copy Enchantment AND ONE MORE Remand ALSO ADDED 2 Windborn Muse FOLLOWS THE FLYING RESTRICTION, AND HAS A BUILT IN GHOSTLY PRISON. AND ITS BOLT BAIT, IN AGGRO MATCHES, IF THEY ARE KILLING MY CREATURES, THEY AINT KILLIN ME! AND POST BOARD, I CAN ADD THE Dispel PLAY SET TO COUNTER INSTANT SPELLS. I THINK THIS DECK COULD END UP BEIN A HUGE PAIN IN THE ASS FOR A LOT OF MATCHUPS, ESPECIALLY, ZOO, ELVES, MERFOLK, MY TROUBLE MATCHES WILL BE, TRON, AGGRO, AND OTHER CONTROL DECKS.

I think the best way to free up space for your sideboard is to reduce redundancy. For example, Vapor Snag and Echoing Truth are both very similar cards. The same with Dispel and Spell Pierce. What matchups in your local meta are you having trouble with? Some of your sideboard cards make little sense to me because I'm not sure what matchups they are used for. Lava Spike seems like a very narrow reach card, and Harvest Pyre is hard removal but it nonbos with some of your other cards (also Enigma Drake if you put him in).

Like, this is, without exaggeration, the strongest EDH deck I have ever seen. Whether everyone gets stomped early, or you drag it out by leaving 10 cards in your deck and demolishing their hopes with the oddly satisfying bits of specific control like Dispel and Spell Snare, catching what you don't have a signed bullet for with Mana Leak on Isochron. Omnipotent is a fitting subtitle for our glowy OP buddy. A Telepathy wouldn't hurt, though.

The one major issue I see with this deck is that there is no win condition, although you have already acknowledged that. If you don't want creature cards, something like Luminarch Ascension would work. If you're shutting down an opponent each turn (which you should be), then you can attack with smaller creatures each turn and be fine. If that's the case, creatures like Meddling Mage/Reflector Mage and Spell Queller are fun, especially if you play cards like Telepathy early on.
Another thing: Instead of having enchantments that pacify creatures and board wipes, ensure that as few creatures make it to the board in the first place, and exile/Unsummon away the ones who do. The whole point of the deck is to not let the opponent do anything, rather than respond to what they have already done.
I would advise against CMC 3 counterspells. You will want as many CMC 1 or 2 counterspells as you can, so you can counter as often as you can. Remand, Dispel, Spell Pierce, and Spell Snare are good for this very reason. Mana Leak is the basic bitch of counters, if you like that one as well. I really like Rune Snag because it scales with use.
People usually suggest Snapcaster Mage, but it's incredibly expensive. Consider it if you will.
Silence and exile like Detention Sphere would work well here, especially the former. Also, Path to Exile is a better option over Swords to Plowshares. Giving the opponent an extra land to cast with (which you would just counter the spell anyway) is much better of a trade than extra health.
10 Ways to lose a Friend does what you're trying to do very well, although it hasn't been updated in two years. Aside from the atrocious amount of money spent on it (mostly on lands), it can give you some good ideas.

I actually like list now, and yes counterspells are big part of every control deck, but i'm not playing anykind of big amount them. Sideboard counters are just for artifact hate and Dispel only pretty much for control mirror.
Disallow Is auto include when i just get more them.
Ohh i would love to have Jace, Unraveler of Secrets luckily it has come down on price, so maybe someday.

I'm liking the updates!!! Thanks N4kk1 for listening. I have a suggestion for you. Since you are a little tight on budget I suggest every time you get a certain card (better than others in the deck) you straight up replace them. This is a guide that might help
For every time you get one of these get rid of one of these
And quick side note, I hadn't noticed it before now.
By definition it is control, but it's heavily based on counterspells
16/75 cards in this deck are counterspells. That's right over twenty percent. I think you should straight up ditch the red and make it a full blown counter spell. Or even better make a new decklist. Standard Counterspell would be interesting.
