Counter target spell. If that spell is countered this way, exile it instead of putting it into its owner's graveyard.

Void Shatter, Spell Shrivel and Dissipate all exile countered spells.

Void Shatter is also the exiling counterspell.

You're off to a good start.

Replace Cancel with another three mana counterspell like Dissipate or Void Shatter. You can also play something like Supreme Will which is a conditional counterspell but also functions as a makeshift Impulse. This means if you reveal it with Yennett, you can cast it for free still. Mystic Confluence is good for the same reason (which you are already running).

Your bomb package is good although I think Nezahal, Primal Tide is worth considering along with Chancellor of the Annex.

I'd also recommend more ways to protect Yennett (and your other bombs). Cards like Mother of Runes and Kira, Great Glass-Spinner do this well.

Path to Exile and Vindicate are essential removal spells you aren't running. I'm also fond of Council's Judgment and Aura of Silence.

One line I have seen with Flash Hulk is to fetch Mogis's Marauder as well as Deathrite Shaman and Hermit Druid. You give both the DRS and Druid haste, eat a land from a yard and druid out. All you need is a draw spell in hand.

Forbid is too expensive of a counterspell to use. If you're going to run a 3 CMC spell, Voidslime or Void Shatter do more work.

Pili-Pala + Grand Architect is too narrow and still suffers from summoning sickness. You'd be better off running Paradox Engine give the density of rocks and since you're running Future Sight and Sensei's Divining Top.

I'm with Stormforge_Mystic--I see the theoretical problem, but not sure I see it being a problem in reality. It's really rare for individuals to deck themselves unless mill is at play.

Let's say this card does see some use, or is used as a sideboard card against mill. Generally, this will not be too big of a problem--as there are fewer and fewer cards in one's deck, there is a vastly larger chance it will be sitting in an opponent's hand when you are ready to win the game. Even if not, Blue can still run sideboard cards like Blue Sun's Zenith, Arcane Denial, Delay, Dissipate, Remand, Void Shatter, etc.

Azorius Chancery is bad, I get that you can untap it with Teferi but that being its only positive compare to the negaitve that it has makes it not worth playing.

Also, Void Shatter is better than Spell Crumple. The only time it's worse is the case where you need to pitch it to FoW. Other that that it does much more work.

I forgot to say Disallow / Void Shatter / Dissolve as alternatives to Syncopate as I know Disallow is a bit costly.

You don't want to be giving your opponent a chance to pay that mana, especially in commander where games tend to be much longer, and everyone has access to more mana. That is why I suggested already to cut the likes of Spell Pierce and such. There is just simply so many better counterspells out there to consider.

First of all thank you for all the advice. About Diplomatic Immunity, I still want to be able to play auras on him from my hand, so I'm sorry, but I think I'll stick with Curator's Ward. Next Pact of Negation I'm no using only because of all my land destruction. Paying the five will become very hard. Thirdly, I'm confused about why Void Shatter is better, is devoid that good? Yes I'll replace Essence Scatter with Render Silent
