Yeah but you're casting a spell (Fork) for nearly the same mana cost, and it's REPEATABLE!! That is broken, my guy. Perhaps instead you could say...

Whenever Dmitri is dealt damage, put a spite counter on it. When Dmitri dies, it deals damage equal to the number of spite counters on it to each opponent.

Or, instead of spite counters they could just be +1 counters, and that would replace the fork and the Eminence ability? It incorporates the revenge and the never-give-up, fight-till-you-drop attitude you want to embody, and feels a lot less mismatched in its flavor.

If you find that you get metal craft often, Galvanic Blast could be fun

If you like Reverberate effects, Wild Ricochet is extremely annoying, and Fork is classic

I really think you ought to run more card draw. Reforge the Soul and Magus of the Wheel are both really good options if you can't afford a Wheel of Fortune

Right now you're running 10 artifacts that have no tap abilities, so you could take advantage of that and run Inspiring Statuary! I've had great success with it, and it flies under a lot of players' radars

Extra turn spells are particularly only good if you can abuse them, take Narset for example, however nearly any command that has a good value-oriented ability that can trigger once-per turn or a set number of times per turn will appreciate them, Azami, Lady of Scrolls can be built wih extra turn spells in mind specifically because the additional untap allows them to draw many more cards, given an appropriately sized field, and the ability to draw another extra turn spell, rinse and repeat will be incredible advantage, commonly an instant win.

If you don't have a consistent engine for maximizing the value of a card like Time Warp, many decks that would still run it use it for one of a few things. If you can double up on spells, such as with effects like Fork, or have some amount ability in using the cast trigger, like with a commander like Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder, it can be worth it. If none of these are true, like Gitaxian Probe, don't run it.

If your opponent counters Lightning Bolt while Fork is still on the stack, then Fork's only target becomes illegal. Per rule 608.2b, "If all its targets, for every instance of the word “target,” are now illegal, the spell or ability doesn’t resolve. It’s removed from the stack and, if it’s a spell, put into its owner’s graveyard."

So Fork will fizzle.

If, however, your opponent allows Fork to resolve first, the copy of Lightning Bolt will still resolve even though the original is countered.

Your Fork will fizzle.

Like any targeted spell or ability, you lock in your target when the spell is cast, and then check the legality of the target again upon resolution.

Here, Counterspell will resolve before Fork, because it was put on the stack last. The Lightning Bolt will be countered, the Fork will no longer have a valid target, and thus will not resolve.

Now, let's say we change the order some.

You cast Lightning Bolt, and, instead of holding priority and casting Fork, pass priority to your opponenet. Your opponent casts Counterspell and you gain priority again. You can cast Fork now--it will be last on the stack, so will resolve first. You will copy Lightning Bolt; then the copy is put on the stack and resolves, dealing 3 damage; then the Counterspell resolves, countering the original Lightning Bolt.

This allows you to get past the Counterspell, but there is a problem. If you pass priority and then your opponent passes without countering, you do not gain priority again, and your lightning bolt will resolve without being copied. Ultimately, however, the result in this case is the same--you end up with 3 damage to the target.
