Lavinia, Azorius Renegade
Legendary Creature — Human Soldier
Each opponent can't cast noncreature spells with converted mana cost/mana value greater than the number lands that player controls.
Whenever an opponent casts a spell, if no mana was spent to cast it, counter that spell.

Oi! Sen Triplets is so busted lol, great choice.
Consider more Tutors if you're looking to keep up with high-power pods more effectively, unfortunately there's really no way around it. Recruiter of the Guard could also pull a lot of weight here, considering all of the applicable pieces like Walking Ballista & Grand Abolisher.
Stuff like Paradox Haze, Mnemonic Betrayal, Praetor's Grasp, Mindslaver & Word of Command also offer value and pseudo-redundancy to this Commander, but they might be getting a little too cute with synergy too.
Card advantage pieces like Ad Nauseam, Dark Confidant, Dark Tutelage, Scroll Rack & of course Necropotence get around card draw Stax pieces like Notion Thief & Narset, Parter of Veils. You may also want to consider those two in this list! Lavinia, Azorius Renegade, Linvala, Keeper of Silence & Chalice of the Void will ruin a lot of game plans as well. If you were running Reanimator I'd also recommend Void Winnower, but this may not be the Commander for all of that...Definitely consider Silence & Angel's Grace, though! Perhaps some Rule of Law effects like Archon of Emeria as well, but it seems like you're trying to go fairly fast here so maybe not lol.
Lastly, a piece that I don't see often but is definitely worth it in high-power pods: Deep Gnome Terramancer. This lil dude Ramps you so much you'll think you're playing a deck, it's actually absurd.

DrukenReaps it sounds like you've never played mono white stax before. Crippling the game from the command zone is a good thing? This as a commander single-handedly halves the amount of games you can play in a night, annoying your opponents in the process.
I've never played a game where Torpor Orb wasn't universally welcomed with groans from all players who didn't cast it. It's fun... once. Just once. See what happens and then disband the deck or be sternly lectured by the playgroup. Take it from someone who played Hokori, Dust Drinker and Lavinia, Azorius Renegade long ago with the same vibes '^^
cEDH players will probably think it's fine, the higher power your meta, the better your answers to a threat like this, or at least the better your ability to play around it. It's as much mana as Ad Nauseam after all. But at casual tables, this card screams very loudly: "DOUBLE MY FUN, NONE FOR YOU ALL" which is a sentiment I don't associate with white in the color pie, nor with a nice game of casual commander '^^
It really is on the same page as Hullbreacher, Opposition Agent, Narset, Parter of Veils, Notion Thief, Drannith Magistrate, Karn, the Great Creator and the like. It's going to punish opponents just for trying to play their deck, even without any other deckbuilding effort. It's at least as punishing as the old praetors, but for half the mana.
If you go against this deck, play blue and make sure you can Clone it, so that everybody is equally unhappy and all can learn from the terrible experience ;)

Your sideboard should probably look something like:
3x Portable Hole clear a path/interaction
2x March of Swirling Mist protection spell
3x Thalia, Guardian of Thraben hates on spell based decks
3x Cathar Commando enchantment/artifact hate
1x Lavinia, Azorius Renegade can hate on fires or nykthos
2x Rest in Peace answers graveyard stratagies

CoarselyRefined Not quite. Although Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir is worded as "Each opponent can cast spells only at any time they could cast a sorcery."" it actually means "Each opponent can only cast spells during their main phase, when the stack is empty". The way Knowledge Pool works is the opponent casts a spell, Knowledge Pool triggers and exiles it, instructing the opponent to choose and cast a spell from among the previously exiled cards. He chooses one and attempts to cast it, however the thing that allows him to do so it the Knowledge Pool's trigger itself, which is still on the stack. Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir sees this and say "No, you can only cast spells when the stack is empty" and stops the spell. That's how the lock works.
Anyway, thanks for the Lavinia, Azorius Renegade suggestion. I'll try to get my hands on one soon. Cheers!

Bloody comments section!! Lofty Denial, Weathered Runestone. Lavinia, Azorius Renegade might be worthwhile, at least until Tibalt's Trickery is banned in the format:D Guardian of Faith might be worthwhile as extra board wipe protection. Strict Proctor is another one for slower match-ups, disrupts a surprising number of effects. Leyline of Sanctity in case of hand disruption?
