Why not pick any of these:
Draining Whelk , Glen Elendra Archmage , Stratus Dancer or Willbender
Instead of Counterspell ?
The synergy of the list above will be higher with your commander than with counterspell.

@ClockworkSwordfish: I think I might also have some ideas for cuts as well:

  1. Willbender : Not truly powerful enough here; besides, Krosan Grip doesn't have that many targets here; & it needs new art... ...and a new Flavor Text that is NOT Pro-Nature; at all.

  2. Voidmage Apprentice : This deck already has enough Counterspell use, & is repeatable w/o needing to flip the table. There isn't that much danger from Split Second stuff anyway...

  3. Dream Stalker : & WHY did I already put in Tidespout Tyrant , & use Ancestral Statue , then Rescuer Sphinx , & back to the former?

  4. All down to you in case you accept these 3 as cut worthy.

Thanks for the help so far. :)

If you’re going full blown morphs, which it looks like you are, perhaps consider Mystic Forge . In the same way Ugin, the Ineffable sees your morphs as colourless so too does the forge. It allows you to say cast Willbender face down off the top of your library as in the rules it’s considered colourless for the purpose of morphing

So with Commander 2019 about a month away what kind of cards do people think should be picked up before the release?

I think Den Protector and Willbender will be two that shouldn’t be too much of a problem to pick up since I think green and blue will probably be colors for the deck.

Why would you run Willbender instead of Swerve ?

I see you have managed to get it down to the 100 that you need. Here’s a few card ideas to get mass amounts of cards into your yard and ways to protect the yard.

Your Glen Elendra Archmage will stop all other yard hate. Speaking of Glen, here’s a way to use her more than once per turn. Melira, Sylvok Outcast will turn Glen into an infinite Negate so you can counter any non creature spell you don’t like, not just graveyard hate.

Np! I'm the only guy in my play group who runs morph, so I'm used to dealing with wierd shinanery, and love helping others do the same!

Important note for morph - it is considered a state-based effect, rather than an activated ability. This means that if someone activates a spell with split second, you can still morph in response, as the "when this card turns face up" is triggered, rather than activated. Willbender recks Sudden Spoiling on so many levels it wasn't even fair.
