Kira, Great Glass-Spinner Discussion

CIPT stands for Comes Into Play Tapped. Generally CIPT have some sort of added bonus to make you want to play them over a basic land, but the problem with them is if you have a hand with too many it can slow you down. Provided you only have a few it's usually not too much of an issue. The issue with depths is that yes you can rearrange the top of your deck but you can't put them to the bottom so if there are cards you don't want, you're going to have to draw them at some point. Personally i wouldn't play the full set, maybe only 2 copies, but that's also largely because you have a lot of cheap spells you want to get out quickly. Having a CIPT land can slow you down by a turn or prevent you from casting a creature and still being able to hold up a counter compared to a normal island.
As for something to protect lord, the first things that come to mind Kira, Great Glass-Spinner and Spellskite are unfortunately pretty pricey. Swiftfoot Boots/Lightning Greaves aren't ideal but if there is some sort of board sweeper like Wrath of God, you get to keep the equipment in play to equip to another one. If it's removal specifically you are worried about Misdirection might be an option but i'm less certain about that recommendation.
As for other cards to put in the sideboard, it depends on what kind of decks you think you will run into. I'll list some here, but if there is a specific deck in mind and you want to know what types of cards are good i can try to suggest a few cards. Usually I like 2-3 sideboard cards for each type of deck i think I might play against unless it's a matchup I think i won't be able to win unless I have more ways to disrupt them.
If you think you will be against a lot of counterspells, Dispel is a nice option.
For token decks or decks that make a lot of creatures quickly, Engulf the Shore
Artifact based decks: Hurkyl's Recall
Echoing Truth is a nice catch-all to hit things that vapor snag can't

Figure of Destiny is brilliant! Too bad it would work well with my deck that wants Tallowisp triggers. I'd suggest one more Drogskol Captain and a Kira, Great Glass-Spinner to ensure that protection is all. +1

Hey, I just wanted to give my two cents.
The last two cards I would consider (Although a bit pricey) would be Spellskite to redirect their targets and Grand Abolisher to stop them from trying to counter your spells or play combat tricks when you attack.
I've been looking to make a similar type of deck and I like the framework you've put together. +1

Okay, so what is your meta like that makes you want to run so may exiling counterspells? Are there really that many graveyard based decks or are there others like token aggro or storm?
Without knowing that I wouldn't suggest anything except maybe to look into non-spell effects that can counter spells like Declaration of Naught and Kira, Great Glass-Spinner if you haven't done so already. I'm not sure where cuts could be made, again, without knowing your meta and therefore what the weakest part of your deck might be against that group.
Also do you currently have any kind of budget concerns for the deck?
