Scour from Existence Discussion

Mana Leak is also a weaker counterspell in EDH (it's pretty decent in 60-card formats). I would only recommend it in very counterspell-heavy decks. If the goal is protecting against removal/boardwipes use Swan Song or Negate . Otherwise, use Counterspell , Arcane Denial , or any of the other good cards that counter anything.
As for Rift Bolt and Lightning Bolt , if they're for removal I would highly recommend something more reliable like Pongify , Rapid Hybridization , Reality Shift , Aftershock , or Fissure . Comet Storm or Rolling Thunder work well with Saheeli too. If they're for going upstairs I'd again recommend things like Comet Storm to have a bigger impact and even end the game outright.
Without counterspelling them, the only way in to handle enchantments is Chaos Warp . I insist you run it. There are a few colorless ways to deal, like Scour from Existence , Unstable Obelisk , and Spine of Ish Sah . The latter two are great with recursion.
Personally, I always run two boardwipes minimum and I try to squeeze more in when possible. You already have the best in Cyclonic Rift, but another could save your bacon (you don't have tutors to find it, nor would I necessarily recommend running any). Even decks that go wide, like ours, need reset buttons in emergencies. Blasphemous Act is the gold standard, but Ixidron , Earthquake , Wash Out , and Coastal Breach are good too.

Curse of the Pierced Heart seems like a quick way to make an opponent hate you. If they don't have an answer to the enchantment, they might turn to player removal to get rid of it.
Heartless Hidetsugu is definitely powerful, though it has some rather dampening downsides. At 5 CMC, he will be in the top 10% of the cards by cost. This combined with him not doing anything the turn he is played makes it hard to include him.
Scour from Existence would be the highest CMC card on the list if it made it in. There is a definite usefulness in being able to remove any permanent, but it is just too high CMC to play.

Curse of the Pierced Heart for a bolt every turn on a certain player.
Heartless Hidetsugu for a race you win because you're getting an extra 2 damage each time.
Leyline of Punishment for an answer to decks that have options against burn.

my Phenax deck is very budget, just above 100 $ if you count the commander, below if you don't. so it's a cheap budget deck. Freed from the Reel is nice, however you want something that untaps all your creatures, like Dramatic Reversal + Isochron Scepter and you are missing the cepter. That combo can untap all your permanents and if you have a mana rock or mana rocks that tap for 2 mana minimum, like, well, sol ring, you mill everyone out with that combo + at least 1 creature. tap the creature to mill, tap sol ring to generate 2 mana, use that mana to untap sol ring and your creature, rinse, repeat until everyone is milled out. this is assuming they do not have Ulamog or Kozilek or any skuffle cards in their deck, because if they do, you cannot mill them at all unless those cards get exiled. it's too bad Phenax isn't white, then you could use Rest in Piece to fix your problem, but against decks with eldrazi titans in them, you just lose by default because you can't win, you will never mill them out, because they keep shuffling back in. there is Scour from Existence but thats it I think. but yeah, Isochron Scepter is missing in your deck for sure.

Your sideboard looks legal now. I don’t think the Walls you have in are remotely playable. For aggro matchups you should be playing sweepers or spot-removal, especially when decks like Burn just go straight over them.
Mainly, I think your deck lacks a backup plan. If your opponent manages to Surgical Extraction after countering it, you can only win through incidental Electrostatic Field burn, and you will lose if you try that. You want some bigger threats here. If you’re on a budget, something like Drakuseth, Maw of Flames or even just a Banefire would be good as a backup.

I am aware of the highlight illegal card function. It is not working here. That is why i needed to ask for help. I think it is a sideboard issue, because when i put Faithless Looting in the mainboard it did highlight that.
Ricochet trap, when i play it, can i have the target new target for the counter be ricochet trap? Otherwise I don't know how that would help me, since i wouldn't have another spell to target with it. Dragons claw is good for burn. I was thinking pycroclasm. All is dust is good and i'm adding Scour from Existence too.
