Teferi, Time Raveler Discussion

SynergyBuild I checked out a video explaining the Trickery deck and I concede, that is ridiculous. I had imagined it as being just as frail as something like Treasure Hunt + Lightning Storm. But the more cascade heavy variant would be trying you with that nonsense every single turn. Trickery is on par with Hypergenesis.
I maintain that Karn was the proper ban. The ‘only exists in the format to do broken things’ is applicable to any combo deck. Decks playing Thassa's Oracle probably aren’t looking to do ‘fair’ things. If Teferi, Time Raveler also could tutor for Knowledge Pool, I don’t think that would make Pool broken. Karn was the problem. The tutor doubled as a damned combo piece! That’s silly! If you could humor me for downtown hyptheticalville, if we errata Karn’s static ability away and add Null Rod to the format, I don’t think anything gets banned.
I definitely agree that Oko is far from safe to plug in right now. But I see it as a card where the meta may evolve to a point that it can accept Oko. I’m simply differentiating cards I think are up for discussion at some point or not. I don’t know what it would take to make the Oko conducive to Modern and whether that says anything good about the format. Oko doesn’t strike me as a Hypergenesis, Tibalt's Trickery, Dread Return, or Summer Bloom type of ban. And there are definitely different types of bans. I see Oko like Jace, the Mind Sculptor, Splinter Twin, or Umezawa's Jitte where we look back every couple years and wonder ‘Is it safe now?’ I agree I wouldn’t have any to see his stupid face any time soon but I wasn’t exactly thrilled to be seeing Jace and Stoneforge Mystic (talk about a linear play pattern). If we unleashed entirety of the ban list, maybe a Delver Oko build would be the one challenger amid a sea of combo decks. But I don’t think Oko would be very meaningful there. Modern would immediately become degenerate and some refer to Modern as Legacy-lite already. While I think the unleashing of absurd combos would be the totality of that transformation, perhaps releasing Oko is the first step in that direction. A direction that is ultimately unhealthy for the format. Aka: Where other bans are absolute, consensus, and thoroughly unquestionable, Oko is at least up for discussion.

I’ve been playing my buddies Bant Spirits list. The only real difference is Collected Company over Aether Vial. We tested both extensively and found that the Aether Vial build, while on average an entire turn faster, runs out of gas more quickly against the control and midrange matchups. Basically anything with lots of removal, we wanted Collected Company instead of Vial.
I’ve seen people suggest Skyclave Apparition and I do add onto the call for that…. In the sideboard. There aren’t a lot of things you absolutely need to remove, the only main thing I can think of that would be a problem would be Teferi, Time Raveler. But since you’re playing the Aether Vial version, you’re not as weak to him as my Bant list is. So it really just depends.
My last suggestion would be some number of Prismatic Ending, ESPECIALLY if you end up adding green. But even on its own, ending is a great answer to every 1-2 mana threat in the format.
I disagree with most other suggestions made however. You don’t need a big beater to win the game, we win through incremental advantage and going over our opponents with flying. Definitely don’t need any spots dedicated to pump spells, Leonin Sun Standard is the biggest “trap” card I’ve ever seen. I didn’t even know it existed before today, and I understand why. I can’t think of a single scenario outside of a limited format where I would want that. It’s essentially a win more card. If you’re ahead it’s awesome, if you’re behind…. it’s absurdly bad.
Good luck! Spirits is a sweet deck and 90% of the time it feels like you’re playing legacy and your opponent is playing standard.

Very cool deck! Some thoughts from my first glance:
I really like the addition of Dauthi Voidwalker here but surprised you’re not playing the full playset - the card feels lile pure gas for this deck.
Dismember feels odd here, because life is valuable. Feels like a sideboard card at best? I’m not sure how often you need this?
I see Bitterblossom in the maybeboard… personally I think running 2ish of them could be strong, though not sure how much it messes with your existing tempo?
How has the land count gone for you? It feels pretty low to me - though i get you have a lot of low cost stuff, and card draw - so presumably it’s fine?
I think it would be strong to have a splash of white in the landbase so you can include Teferi, Time Raveler in the sideboard… he’ll basically guarantee you can ninjitsu without interruption, which feels really valuable here. Spellskite is good but very short-lived in these scenarios.

Sweet summer child Counterspell is here and this may be the time you spoke of. Lazotep Plating for burn, Unsubstantiate for Abrupt Decay. I'm going to be playtesting Teferi, Time Raveler+Silenceon a scepter.

Teferi, Time Raveler - another one, that needs to be there, on his place, waiting for his moment.

Sorry, I haven't been able to login basically since I posted the question. The FB login method isn't working, but I guess I can use Google to login just the same... I didn't know that until now.
Thank you for the responses! Regarding what Gidgetimer said, you say that Vedalken Orrery doesn't negate Teferi, Time Raveler , and I'm curious why not? It seems like that would be one of those scenarios where the last one to ETB would have priority and trump the other... but if they don't negate each other, how does that work out in-game...?
