Upon re-reading the question, I think I see where the confusion is coming from. When Render Silent says "counter target spell" that means YOU are choosing the spell to target that RS will counter. It does not mean that you are choosing a spell that itself is targeting something. Most Magic cards are phrased in a similar way when they target something. Catapult Master exiles a creature YOU target, not a creature that is targeting something itself. Font of Ire deals damage to a player YOU target, not a player that's targeting something else. The wording is "target x". For the alternative, look for wording similar to "that targets x" like in Battlewise Hoplite's heroic ability, Reparations, or the aforementioned Confound. This will let you know the card cares what other things are targeting.

Twist35 Thanks for all the suggestions! I think the reason I liked Vessel of Ephemera over Omen of the Sun was because I can essentially cycle it to my graveyard with 5 mana rather than 6 so I can use it again. Plus, it makes evasive tokens as well. But I can definitely see the case for the flash on Omen of the Sun and that scry might come in handy.
The fonts are there because they can be recurred once for a decent sized effect. Later in the game, recursion becomes more difficult. So those cards are there for the late game stall when nothing else can get through. They will typically not be played early in the game, especially Font of Ire. They are also kind of my favorite flavor cards in the deck. So I think I'll keep them in my build, but feel free to switch them out in yours.
I agree on the sideboard. I was kind of going for a Heliod's Pilgrim sandbox. I think I definitely need to reevaluate the cards I've included there.
Appreciate the support, I'll test out some changes soon!

Vessel of Ephemera is basically a worse Omen of the Sun. I think you should cut the vessels and go up to 4 omens. I also don't like either of the fonts, they both feel really overpriced for a rather mediocre effect. Font of Ire is 6 total mana for 5 damage. Seal of Fire can do better for less mana, albeit you need recursion. I think it would be a good idea to have some number of Oblivion Ring in the mainboard, as it can deal with so many threats. I would put in some more card draw and filtering to improve the consistency. Effects like Faithless Looting are really good. I would condense your sideboard, maybe trim down on the Pacifism effects and add some life gain cards. Seeing as you are a control deck your opponent will likely trim some of their removal post-board, so adding a big creature as win condition can't be bad. I like Daybreak Chimera and Self-Assembler as finishers. Anyways your deck looks super cool and I am looking to buy myself one. Have fun playing!

2x Goblin Trashmaster will make its way into my sideboard. Thanks for the suggestion.
So now I’ve been considering some backups just in case. Here are some cards I’ve been considering.
3x Red Sun's Zenith I really like that it get put back into the library after use and only need to pay 4 to do 3 damage.
3x Font of Ire I like this one because it’s you can use it as a distraction or just to make them sweat lol.

Up to $80 for the deck price limit. The deck is currently balanced at $79.92. I have made the following cuts over the past few weeks.
