Counter target creature or planeswalker spell unless its controller pays . If an opponent has eight or more cards in their graveyard, instead counter that spell, then scry 2.

Rimebound Dead feels very weak, and only useful defensively. Zombie Musher also does very little for its mana cost. Better creatures include Abominable Treefolk, Priest of the Haunted Edge, and Frost Augur

I like to lean into drawing with mono-blue mill because of cards you're already running like Psychic Corrosion and Teferi's Tutelage. If you go this route you can throw in Archmage Emeritus and other cantrips like Visions of Beyond and Quicken to chain-draw your spells. Teferi, Master of Time is also bananas because you can use his abilities on each of your opponents' turns, effectively negating one of the biggest downsides of planeswalkers in commander.
With Emeritus on the field, even your removal like Pongify and Rapid Hybridization replace themselves and even mill if you have one of your enchantments on the field as well. The same can be said of your counterspells.
Overall, this is a cool deck and I wish you luck with it!

I can normally get UU turn 2 but it's not 100% and delay is just in a spot where it's the next best 2cmc counter I think. A suggestion for something else that isn't dependant on my opponent's yard like Drown in the Loch or Anticognition is something I'd for sure look into.
UR Murktide was about 1/3 of the decks last week. It's legit insane. I don't run Rest in Peace purely because of my snap package and instead rely on my other cards to handle it in conjunction with my snaps being able to support it by flashing back a Kaya's Guile if I need to.
Your point here on Murktide Regent vs Shark Typhoon makes sense. I'll for sure keep that in mind as it hasn't been long since I added both of them to the list but I for sure see why I'd run Sharknado instead. I'll see how it plays both ways since I do already have murktides but only one Sharknado so I'd have to borrow other copies to test.
Burn isn't a part of my meta that was just an example of why it's there as there are situations where thaT concept is applicable. It's really a card that I probably should get rid of and I agree but I'm not quite sure what to replace it with.
I'm working on making a top list and I have looked at both UW and WUB control lists while making and editing this list. I know it'll take some tuning and a couple revisions more than I've done to get it solidly where I want it though. How would you feel about some changes that look like this?
-2 Murktide Regent
-2 Sunset Revelry
+4 Rune Snag
+1 Shark Typhoon
+1 Dovin's Veto/Archmage's Charm

DeVerbalen I didn't know they were making shard triomes already I'll for sure slot one or two in.
I don't run Drown in the Loch because my playgroup is pretty graveyard matters and I main 3 Kaya's Guile and 2 Kaya, Orzhov Usurper and they make drown bad. It was in the deck for a while along with Anticognition though.
I did mess with my removal suite a bit after some goldfishing and a couple games online. Murderous Rider was good but double black isn't easy to get quickly as I need to prioritize triple blue and black is the colour I have the least of by a large margin.

So far, this is my experience with the Arena Historic meta:
Lifegain, both GW and W: your life total is of no importance to me! This is probably our best matchup, although getting hit by Maul of the Skyclaves is a bit of a tough clock to beat. Our Winds of Rebuke pale in the light of Alseid of Life's Bounty, but seeing as the Maul usually comes down T3, we can usually hit the threat before they get mana to activate. Not an issue.
5c: there seem to be a lot of 5-color variants in the format, between Niv, Jodah, Slivers, etc. Slivers seem to do well against us, even with their cascading from The First Sliver thinning their deck. Lavabelly Sliver has lead to most of our few defeats.
Elves: have gave us some close games, but I think we're the better deck. The Allosaurus Shepherds give some trouble for Anticognition-ing Hoofs, but as long as we have Winds of Rebuke we should be fine.
Merfolk: Master of the Pearl Trident hurts! Probably the only reason we've taken an L to them before. The other creatures they have are certainly efficient, but bouncing a lord or two allows for great blocks with our Walls and such. Winnable matchup.
Hammertime: I struggle to win against Hammertime, but they almost always have 1-5 cards left in library at the end of the game. I think I've been unlucky on missing interaction in our games, since the deck has no protection and gets hosed by bounce. Again, winnable.
Control, both Grixis and Jeskai: another good matchup for us, since we can protect our crabs with bounce spells and Tests. Mill is a very grindy deck anyway, so having longer matchups just works in our favor. And we can hit most big finishers with Anticognition, since it can hit creatures AND PWers, so that's not a problem.

3 Damping Sphere big mana + storm hate
3 Anticognition hits the Tron targets and is more flexible than Ceremonious Rejection
2 Outland Liberator Flip artifact/enchant hate
3 Ashiok, Dream Render can't be paid away like Leonin Arbiter and is harder to interact with. Replaces both RIP and arbiter with costing just 1 more mana.
2 Surgical Extraction good all around hate for problem cards
2 Pithing Needle
Yeah I am a bit land light but I have a fairly low curve and plenty of fetches to feed the Tireless Tracker I may see about upping my land count but my esper deck has a 2.97 average cmc and only one more land without problems so I don't think it's going to be a big deal.
