My commander deck right now is CVT Teferi, and it’s pretty darn close to tier 1, so I have some suggestions. Im assuming your taking suggestions since you have it tagged as needing help.
Force of will, ugin, static orb, cursed totem, BSZ, grim monolith, transmute/Power arti, rewind, mana vault/crypt, gilded lotus
1) What I would take out
A: Forbid is a good counterpell, but bad in this deck. You don’t want to empty your hand that much to get a non-free counterspell back to your hand. You definitely want a full hand.
B: Jace, Architect of Thought doesn’t do anything in your deck unless he ults, and he’s probably not going to in a competitive meta.
C: Everflowing Chalice is a decent ramp card, but it’s definitely not the best one, and the fact that it only turns on the CV combo of you play it T4 means it’s not super viable.
D: Paradox Engine. Amazing card, and I considered putting it in my deck, but CVT can win pretty easily without it, and engine only adds a small amount of synergy and combo to what is played in the deck to the point that I would rather play another stax piece.
F: Unwinding Clock doesn’t do a whole lot in the deck and doesn’t turn on the combo.
G: Mind Spring is better replaced with any instant speed draw x or any target player draw x
I: The creature teferi. Although he’s great against other counter decks, since CVT plays free counters and usually uses them to protect the combo, and creature teferi’s first ability is useless in the deck, and there aren’t a lot of competitive counter decks other than CVT out there, he’s not super good and it would be better to just play Dispel.
2) what I would put in
I’m not sure what your budget is so this might seem very overpriced.
B: Ugin, the Spirit Dragon is played in a lot of competitive CVT decks, because he basically locks down creature decks like sisay (board wipe the turn he comes down and bolt sisay whenever they try to play him)
G: Transmute Artifact allows you to go for the combo easily
H: Power Artifact goes infinite with basalt monolith or grim monolith.
I: Extraplanar Lens acts as a static high tide, ramping You whenever you play teferi.
J: Rewind is possibly a good counter choice as it allows you to leave only four mana up and be able to respond twice.

I feel like Kess, dissident mage would just be a better commander for this deck overall. If you're going for Storm as a win condition, you'd benefit from a lot of 1 or 2 mana draw spells such as: - Ponder - Opt - Frantic Search (3 mana, but it pays for itself) - Gitaxian Probe - Faithless Looting - Impulse - Serum Visions - Thought Scour
Cards that make instant/sorcery cards cheaper such as: - Baral, Chief of Compliance - primal amulet - Jace's Sanctum - Nightscape Familiar - Sapphire Medallion, Ruby Medallion, and Jet Medallion - Arcane Melee (This one does benefit all players, not just you)
Instants and Sorceries that give you mana, or cards that pay for themselves: - Dark Ritual - Cabal Ritual - Dark Petition - Seething Song - Desperate Ritual - Pyretic Ritual - Priest of Urabrask - Rewind - Unwind
Cards that copy your instants and sorceries: - Thousand-Year Storm - Swarm Intelligence - Dual Casting - Increasing Vengeance - Doublecast - The Mirari Conjecture (Also recurs instants/sorceries from your graveyard, which, while is nice, isn't really that helpful as Kess (if you make her your commander) can just cast them from your graveyard anyway).
Some cards that are just very good in Kess decks should you switch to her: - Increasing Vengeance - Increasing Ambition - Entomb - Forbidden Alchemy - Intuition - Jace, Vryn's Prodigy Flip - Mizzix's Mastery - Past in Flames

Since you are playing five colours you might wish to consider Shard Convergence and Untamed Wilds. Oketra the True might also be a worthy consideration for this deck. Extinguish All Hope may be a fun consideration for a deck that mostly plays enchantment creatures that are indestructible. Humbler of Mortals may be a fun consideration as well as Commune with the Gods: useful and it is on theme. Thassa's Devourer may also be a fun addition to the deck. Whitewater Naiads could potentially make all your creatures unblockable. Worst Fears is also something fun and evil you might want to add to this deck. Rewind and Dissolve are worthy counter spells.
I hope these suggestions prove to be of some use!

Ravenrose: Because this is a Canadian Highlander deck, mana cost for cards is very important. 4 mana is a lot to spend on Shard Convergence which ultiamtely just fills my hand with land. At the same cost I have cards like Siege Rhino and Hero of Bladehold which very quickly can close a game out.
I used to run a counterspell package but ultimately cut it for more proactive hand hate (like Thoughtseize) as the counterspells were too slow. The problem with Rewind is that the card is a bit of a trap. The idea of it being a "free" counterspell is only true if you have a decent selections of spells that you can play with it at instant speed, otherwise it still just costs 4 mana (at the end of your opponent's turn, any unspent mana is wasted mana). Apart from that, it has a huge outlay to cast. 4 mana means that I won't be able to do anything else, so I just have to sit there with mana up and not play threats. And playing threats keeps the pressure on my opponent. Compare the idea of being able to counter one of my opponent's spells versus say playing a Bloodbraid Elf and then cascading ito addiitonal value.
Wild Pair is far too slow here. And it is then reliant on me playing creatures. Tutors like Eladamri's Call on the other hand allow me to just fetch a creature, so top decking call would guarantee a creature, but topdecking Pair means another turn before I can potentially get one. And another turn is an opening to for my opponent to make me dead. Plus 6 mana is a lot to invest in a spell that isn't game ending by itself. I would much rather in the cost bracker get something like Dragonlord Ojutai who is a lot of flying damage and provides the deck with more tempo.

Looks like a fun deck, though you are missing Darigaaz's Charm which can be quite useful. A counter spell or two does not hurt either. I recommend Rewind, Dissolve and Render Silent. Atraxa, Praetors' Voice will help with your counter strategy. You are also playing five colours so I suggest putting in Shard Convergence as well.
I hope these suggestions have helped!
