Ethereal Absolution Discussion

Sticking with the multicolored theme I think Ethereal Absolution would fit nicely in place of one of the Glasses. It's a bit more expensive (mana wise) but the card does alot.

Thran Lens allows your creatures to block Animar and possibly remove him if any have deathtouch.
If you're playing 1 vs 1 Council's Judgment can always remove Animar.
Deathgrip is probably your BEST counterspell.
Since Animar starts as a 1/1 cards like Engineered Plague , Night of Souls' Betrayal , Curse of Death's Hold , Ethereal Absolution , and Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite make him die instantly before he can ever get big. (If he's already out and pumped up before you can get one out just use a board wipe and he'll be stuck in the command zone until the Animar player can remove this effect.)
Chalice of the Void on 3 makes it so Animar can't be cast.

A couple of ideas for you, hopefully nothing too major!
First off, I want to address the SB choices. You are in Esper colors, which is full of plenty of extra options to keep the deck flexible. Right now, you seem very focused on creatures, which is fine, but I feel that makes the deck far too narrow... here's a few options:
Smothering Tithe --> This one is eh... but it might help in the control matches.
Depose / Deploy --> I have been EXTREMELY impressed by this card in playtesting so far, but this one is also somewhat opinionated.
Warrant / Warden --> See above.
Unbreakable Formation --> BONKERS
Ethereal Absolution --> I play tokens... be prepared...
Settle the Wreckage --> Lopsided board wipe, kinda. Can be useful if your meta is full or aggro.
Your deck seems to be focused on early disruption and overall being annoying. You have a lot of interaction, so here's a few ideas for the main:
Hero of Precinct One --> Only if you add in a few more multi-colored spells, but I love this card.
Kitesail Freebooter --> I know it is in your sideboard, but since the rest of the deck is so disruptive it may be worth a thought.
Basilica Bell-Haunt --> What's mono-red anyway...
Seraph of the Scales --> Significantly more expensive, but, she good. at least, so I've heard.
Several of the cards can be shifted around, for example Kitesail Freebooter can probably just replace Ministrant of Obligation in the main, even if for only 2 or 3 copies. I think any of the split cards I put for the sideboard could go in the main as well, Plaguecrafter can shift to the SB (meta dependent). I also feel that Chemister's Insight doesn't have a home in this list, since you want to out-value and disrupt rather than win through card advantage in a design like this.
Have you thought about adding in a planeswalker anywhere? Both new walkers I feel a soft spot for in my heart, I even added Baby Dovin to my tokens list, (which is now bant) and I just have a soft spot for new Kaya as well.
These are all just opinions, but if you have any questions about my suggestions or want some help let me know!

Amazing deck and presentation! Looks really pleasurable to pilot. I love all the synergies you've built between Haakon and Elenda.
Here comes a few suggestions I've in mind :
Bitterblossom > not the funniest card you could find, but it is a real powerhouse alongside Attrition , Anointed Procession , Skullclamp , Dictate of Erebos etc. / I was a bit surprised it wasn't included.
Bloodghast > same note.
Enduring Renewal > makes you a bit more vulnerable against control match-ups as they can see and play around what you're trying to do, but it has the potential of being extra spicy there - giving you a lift at building up your combos.
Academy Rector > absurdly good at tutoring some of your combos. Expensive (money speaking) nonetheless.
Forbidden Orchard > fuel for Elenda against creatureless decks. Taps for any color.
Grave Betrayal > greedy and expensive card that only works against decks running valuable creatures. Good fun, poor consistency.

Well hello there Weiss ;P
It's always nice to see another Teysa Karlov deck, and the token route is definitely a fun one.
If you want any other ideas I also have my own deck: May We Never Part | Teysa Karlov EDH | PRIMER
I hope that this helps!

I value low curves for a personal deck building as I come from a more competitive meta, so cards I find inefficient are cards like:
- Ethereal Absolution
- Debtors' Knell
- Obzedat's Aid
- Entreat the Dead
- Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts
- Pontiff of Blight
- Maw of the Obzedat
- Butcher of Malakir
- Angel of Despair
All these cards are a bit too clunky and don't provide much additional benefit with running in strategy with Teysa Karlov. More die trigger effects or spirit production are great, so I would recommend more cards like Archon of Justice or sac outlets and die triggers that provide card advantage like Grim Haruspex . Just my perspective imo, it is your deck :P
Hope that helps! ^^
