Can't seem to wrap my head around this one.
Mid-game, three player game.
Main cards involved:
Purphoros, God of the Forge (mine)
Vizier of Deferment (player 2)
Purphoros attacks. That resolves. Player 2 casts Vizier of Deferment and exiles Purphoros. I end my turn, Player 2 does their turn and ends their turn. I should be getting Purphoros back to the battlefield now. Player 3 casts Rewind or Cancel or some other counterspell with the intent to counter Purphoros from returning to the battlefield. I'm not as familiar on the rules of this, so it resolved and Purphoros went to the graveyard.
Is this how it was supposed to play out, or how would it have played out otherwise?

Thank you! I put a lot of work into it, I'd like to know how yours runs! I don't know anybody else personally who runs an Ertai :p
The first budget replacements I can think of are Archaeomancer and Mnemonic Wall for Snappy and Gearhulk. They'll still get you the extra mileage from your counterspells, which are notoriously weak in EDH. I was given my Force by a retiring friend, but without that I'd probably run Rewind, as it's another "free" counterspell. Docent Flip and Guile are cheap rares though, and they're my primary win routes, so just loading up on your favorite counterspells should do fine, as long as you have a variety in mana costs. Reassembling Skeleton is a bomb Bitterblossom replacement, and so good for Ertai I'm always considering running both, but it's one of those random uncommon I can never find! A Wall of Denial is a fine wall in place of Spellskite too, and it's shroud doesn't prevent Ertai from sacking it.
Now that I'm thinking about it, returning a counter with Archaeomancer, sacking to counter a spell, returning and replaying seems pretty alright...

I was indeed thinking to replace Linvala, the Preserver , Torrential Gearhulk, since they were more of filler cards untill i got better cards. I was also thinking to replace Darksteel Ingot and put in Chromatic Lantern.
''you need a lot more ramp, disruption or counter spells''
Also do you have other suggestions? Which cards should I remove?

Bear Umbra is usually my "worth the risk" aura. It helps that the critter just has to attack for an instant benefit. Kind of has that Rewind effect potentially... But it is a good point that "worth the risk" auras make for such a juicy target right away

Pls read description of deck before replying
This deck's only weakness is the commanders fragility on turns 4-5. On turn 4 I'm tapped out, and she has summoning sickness anyway, so no real way of defending her there, but turn 5 is a different story. What should the third instant under her ass be? Counterspell is good, and the best option I could find, but it makes her a target and taps her out. I'm looking for something that can counter something and then untap her at the same time: Rewind style (yes, I know she's not a land, it was an example); or maybe a wrath effect that I can threaten people with (think Evacuation). I'm willing to go with hexproof or indestructible if it untaps her at the same time. Just anything you think would help.
