It looks like you might have a lot of trouble coming up with a blue source, when nearly half of your mana symbols are blue. Land bases are unfortunately expensive, but it looks like some of your dual-colored lands weren't that necessary. I copied your deck and experimented a bit: 1x Adarkar Wastes 4x Deserted Beach 3x Evolving Wilds 7x Island 3x Plains 4x Raffine's Tower 3x Tranquil Cove
As far as counterspells go, as a cruel control player, I'll let most critters hit the field, then remove them at instant speed. I keep my counterspells for more dangerous things, like walkers or annoying creatures that have powerful ETB effects, or huge Enchantments.

Ill stick to just the mana base for now. Far too many of your lands enter the battlefield tapped. This will make your deck extremely slow, even against pre-constructed decks. I suggest that you swap in some basic lands, and cut ETB tapped lands like Tranquil Cove. You can make up for the lack of color fixing with the "talisma" mana rock cycle.
Talisman of Curiosity, Talisman of Progress, and Talisman of Unity. I think they're better in your deck than the signets. Also, if you need color fixing after diluting your lands, you can try a few effects. Dryad of the Ilysian Grove is a favorite, and so is Chromatic Lantern.
Also I'm not a fan of Frilled Mystic in this deck, wayyy too color intensive even with fixing effects.
Further, the single Walk the Aeons is the only piece of that combo in your deck. I suggest adding some more extra turns spells so the combo can resolve through graveyard hate, countermagic, or just bad luck. Additionally, some instant/sorcery tutors would be good. Solve the Equation is a good budget option, but Mystical Tutor is an even better tutor.
I also suggest asking your play group if they would be OK with proxying cards so you can get a feel for the format. Get a high quality printer (like at a library) and find a site that lets you print proxies. I like deckstats. net.

Tranquil Cove is strictly better than a guildgate in this deck and is still butt cheap

Thank you! Definitely didn't even cross my mind to upgrade the mana base, I basically just dragged this from Arena lol

Hey there, I love the idea of a soldier deck and wanted to build one for a long time myself. I personally would concentrate on fewer cards and more copies of these to make the deck more consistent. Also I don't know how fast you want this deck to be. Maybe you can consider less high drops in favor of your mana curve. Thalia, Guardian of Thraben hurts yourself a bit in this draft, considering you are running 13 noncreature spells and I would also consider dropping her, if you want to keep these spells. Lastly I recommend reducing your land count a bit to around 22/24. Blossoming Sands and Tranquil Cove are not of much use and will only slow you down, whereas Kjeldoran Outpost or Forbidding Watchtower (though not faster) come with a nice, flavorful effect. Cheers :)

Commander is an increasingly fast format because of the cry for not ramping on turn 2 being a death sentence. You can still Farseek off of one of these if you play it turn 1. The only turn they're bad is turn 2, and if you have to play it tapped turn two, you should probably have mulligan'd your hand. I'll play Deserted Beach over Seachrome Coast in any commander deck. Which doesn't mean I'll play it, to be honest, I think it goes the two-colored equivalent of:
Horizon land if available (Horizon Canopy and such)
Prairie Stream but only with fetches
Irrigated Farmland better with fetches, cycling still solid
Glacial Floodplain higher with fetches, of course
That's the general order I'd consider them to include in my 2-color deck if available, I guess.
