you could also stasis snare in response to the saheeli - ; the - would have no legal target then and just make her lose loyalty without a benefit

Blume17 Athraithe Geo67 Camel-Senpai the following non-counterspell cards mess with the Saheeli combo: Authority of the Consuls Stasis Snare and Repel the Abominable and Thing in the Ice Flip flipping into Awoken Horror.
Disallow is a counter spell, but it also can counter triggered or Activated abilities. With this you can either counter an enter the battlefield effect from Felidar Guardian or Saheeli's activated -2 effect. To not immediately lose, you should counter Saheeli's -2 effect or Felidar Guardian still gets it done.

Just so you know, there are far stronger counterspells in the set than what you have in the mainboard. I would definitely cut the mainboard Dispel. You need to put Ceremonious Rejection in the sideboard. Run more Disallow. Void Shatter is strictly better than Spell Shrivel.

AiryNeon I have a lot of mana fixing but Spell Shrivel is in there before Void Shatter because I'm running two colors. I have a lot of mana fixing but I don't want to be caught early game without the ability to counter, and with Baral out I can use any mana and a blue to cast Spell Shrivel but I'd still need two blue to cast Void Shatter. I feel this frees up my blue mana to cast creatures like Thing in the Ice Flip early game or to cast more spells without having to think about what I'm using it for, possibly allowing me to cast an anticipate and then still having the right colored mana for casting a counter spell.
Negate generally gets what I'd want out of Ceremonious Rejection and with Emrakul, the Promised End gone I'm not particularly afraid of any colorless spell now. I used to have 3x Ceremonious Rejections on my sideboard, but I felt like I needed to use my sideboard to deal with more different situations rather than to change my counterspell game.
For now I'm seeing how Disallow runs as a two of. I love Disallow and may include more in the future. I may cut out a Dispel main board and swap it for a Disallow and if I find that I'm having zero mana problems after being able to play this deck for a while I might replace Spell Shrivel with Void Shatter

Rasanck That is a fair point. Now I have a couple of other questions for you. I really dislike Revolutionary Rebuff. Considering how many instants you have, you may want to consider Noyan Dar, Roil Shaper. You need to have a body which can be a wincon. If your budget will allow, Gideon, Ally of Zendikar and Archangel Avacyn Flip are both amazing finishers in white. Consider Cataclysmic Gearhulk as well. Also, the blue-white signpost uncommon in AER is definitely worth running. In case you don't know, it is called Spire Patrol. All in all, I like this deck. I'd love to help you further with this and/or other decks in the future.

AiryNeon I've actually got multiple spares of Gideon, Archangel, and the white Gearhulk but I wouldn't know what to take out because the plan is to flip thing in the ice which should clear the board and swing.

Rasanck I agree. The thing about TITI is that it doesn't hit walkers, so if you wait to flip it and then +1 Gideon, Ally of Zendikar, then you hit for way more. Plus, with Archangel Avacyn Flip, bouncing her is not detrimental, because she can anthem indestructible again. Or, if she has already flipped, you can bolt the board. Cataclysmic Gearhulk is simply a fallback. Spire Patrol is nice for after you have bounced everything, because they play something again, and you tap it down. As for what you should take out, I can analyze your deck a little bit more.

have you thought about Slip Through Space to continue to just beat the opponent down with thing through ice once they start playing creatures again

I know. Still, better than anything I've put together. Didn't mean to ruffle any feathers. Just disappointed in what great cards are leaving in September is all.
