Counter target spell you don't control.

Mana Drain is nice, but I am usually not a fan of it in a deck with 4 or more colors
With this being 5 color, I am trying to debate the best early game package
5 counterspells (from below)
4-5 board wipes
7 2 drop ramps (need all)
4 spot removal

The deck overall looks pretty solid, biggest thing IMO would just be cleaning up the list a little for consistency.
You have some good draw options already with 4 Expressive Iteration, I don't think you need the Narset, Parter of Veils. I would go one more Teferi, Hero of Dominaria, and one less Nahiri, the Harbinger.
Haven't been following the meta too closely since Lurrus ban, but pre-ban, Prismatic Ending was generally played over Path to Exile. The deck feels a bit light on counters, but one more Counterspell would fix that. Personally, I like Fire / Ice more than Lightning Bolt, but that may be preference. Detention Sphere feels out of place in the main as a one of, another Supreme Verdict would improve consistency.
For the sideboard, I'm not entirely sure what Counterflux is doing. Flusterstorm is better against Storm and Dovin's Veto is better against a control mirror or tempo. You already have enough exile effects that Anger of the Gods feels unnecessary, same with the other Path to Exile. Another Rest in Peace and tron hate like Alpine Moon would work better.

One, maybe it would be funny to call the list Hinata-Kun XD
Hullbreaker Horror: I have been really loving this card lately, it is expensive (CMC) but helps to keep control of the board
Drannith Magistrate: stop you oppnenets from casting their commanders
You could run Orbs with Urza and Opposition
Thassa, Deep-Dwelling: slow, but consistent
Spellseeker: search your X spells
Cyberdrive Awakener: if you want to win off your rocks and treasure tokens
Disorder in the Court: this can help for draw, protection, and "Blinking"
Smoke Spirits' Aid: I don't know if it fits, but could be spicy
win cons (Outside of combos)
Metallurgic Summonings: you make big tokens and gives recursion.
Monastery Mentor: tokens
Shark Typhoon: tokens
Jin-Gitaxias, Progress Tyrant is made for this list
Urza, Lord High Artificer: can make use of a lot of artifact tokens that can be created in this list and can be an outlet for infinite mana to cast your deck
Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite: probably good if you run a lot of token producing cards like Saheeli, Sublime Artificer, Monastery Mentor, Shark Typhoon, Metallurgic Summonings, Manaform Hellkite, Talrand, Sky Summoner, Kykar, Wind's Fury

Shroud, ~ can't be countered.
Create 5 5/5 White Angel Creature tokens with flying, lifelink, and first strike. Those creatures gain double strike until end of turn.
At the beginning of the upkeep, and at the beginning of your next end step, draw a card.
Yep, Shroud on an instant. Because spells can be countered without being targeted (I'm looking at you, Counterflux and every "bounce-a-spell" effect)
Make a creature with both Absorb 20, AND an activated ability that allows it to block up to 78 creatures (not any number, 78).

Cards I'd consider cutting: Nicol Bolas, God-Pharaoh, Rhystic Study, Counterflux, Cryptic Command, Sensei's Divining Top, Read the Bones, Solemn Simulacrum, Akoum Refuge, Choked Estuary, Foreboding Ruins, and one or 2 Island(s)

You could run some Threats still in line with your them:
Karn, the Great Creator: I love this tool box card but it depends on how people feel about the 10 card sideboard, it isn't officially allowed exactly but cEDH may change that. you can fill the board (10 is generally the accepted number I have seen for the "side") with situationally useful artifacts.
The only other thing I would think of is maybe considering a bit more control like
to give a bit more protection for your strats
Rakdos's Return is always funny but may or may not work here
Daretti, Ingenious Iconoclast seems to fit the theme
I am not a fan of the wellsprings, they do fit the them somewhat but can seem dead at times.
I had a couple of others that were in mind but lost them, I will comment if I think of them

I think that Mana Leak is severely underrated, and I am surprised that no one has yet mentioned it. It is a soft counter, rather than a hard one, but it still is very effective, as it can counter any spell unconditionally and most players will not be able to afford to pay 3 mana until later in the game, and the fact that it costs only 2 mana (and only one of which is colored) means that it can be cast early in the game.
Counterflux is another excellent card, in my mind, because it, itself, cannot be countered, and its overload ability is very nice, as well.
I also think that Countersquall , Undermine , and Thought Collapse deserve to be mentioned, as well; while they may not be the most powerful counterspells in the game, the fact that they add insult to injury with their additional effects should not be overlooked.
Arcane Denial is also an excellent counterspell, as well; while allowing an opponent to draw two cards may be less than ideal, the fact that it can unconditionally counter any spell for a very low and easy cost.
