i don't think anyone "enjoys" the act of putting sleeves on cards, but im sure most players want their cards to be sleeved.

Karametra's Blessing states it can only target creatures, and you shouldn't be using auras on your creatures in this deck.

Sevelantis: Teferi, Master of Time can't go in a BW deck, and 5 mana for Teferi, Hero of Dominaria isn't too much in commander. i also wouldn't consider Dovin's Veto one of the most powerful counter spells in magic. better counter spells that come to mind that i don't see in this list include Force of Will , Force of Negation , Archmage's Charm , Absorb , Sinister Sabotage , Dissolve

we'd need to see the decklist, but shrines sound like they can be easily hated out, which is likely the same reason the usage of enchantress decks dropped off so sharply. generally artifact/enchantment based decks are fast enough that they can try to win before the opponent draws too much sideboarded removal, like affinity or bogles.

RNR_Gaming: i'm assuming you mean horizons 1? even without an Aether Vial or Collected Company i can still win turn 4 thanks to Cloudshredder Sliver . several of the top decks on mtggoldfish right now dont have enough removal (imo) to deal with my own sliver build, and jund being relatively unplayed now is great. Harmonic Sliver can have a field day all over hammer time decks.

legendofa: just noticed you said slivers should stick to 1-3 colors, but i'm fine with all 5. a proper selection of fetch lands and shock lands, Sliver Hive , Aether Vial , and Manaweft Sliver and i almost never have problems getting the right color.

how do your opponents "not expect" the Glimmer Bairn ?

galea is still a unique and distinct name, so changing any of the letters would just be arbitrary
as for being realistic or not, you're technically conflating what is unrealistic in the real world with what is unrealistic in a fictional world, if that makes sense.

GrimlockVIII if land destruction alone is the goal then it’d be more efficient to just use actual land destruction spells. Milling the opponent with this list probably wont happen, but I definitely have seen people at fnm who legitimately just build troll decks to waste time though so thats a possibility

i believe what azeworai is "trying" to say is that names in stories will sound similar just like names in real life. plus theres only about 44 phonemes in english.
as for odd names swaying a player from casting the card, i think Asmoranomardicadaistinaculdacar disagrees.

cut Aegis of the Heavens , Lazotep Plating , and Gauntlets of Light . you don't need buff spells, you need removal so you can get in unblocked attacks in the first place. buffs won't help when your opponent can chump block with a 1/1.

being a casual player means not going to tournaments, and if you're not going to tournaments then your deck doesn't need to be super refined in the first place. just brew something, and upgrade it over time as you find out what works and what doesn't against your friends decks.
i find the recommendations of commander, cube, or sealed to be odd recommendations. commander includes every set from throughout magic's history, so thats a lot of cards to look through to build a deck for someone who has so little time, and the precons are really bad. cube also has the same issue of time, as well as needing more than just 2 players. sealed events have to be done on the stores schedule instead of your own which will be difficult or impossible with 2 jobs, plus it seems a bit silly for a players "main" format to be one where a given card only gets played once (unless someone cheats and sneaks in their own cards from the same set which is always a risk you take with sealed events like draft and prerelease). if these formats work for you then great, but i doubt they'll work with your time constraint.
that being said, i think the best format recommendation is actually one that nobody here has said yet, which is pauper. the power levels are low enough that even if you don't win, you're at least not getting totally stomped on if you brew something decent. my own version of eldrazi tron does pretty well.

Test Disallow for yourself and you’ll see that abilities for you to counter come up far more often than any situation where whirlwind counters multiple effects

because it says "one or more", it doesn't matter how many creatures or how many players. damage is all dealt simultaneously, and the ability triggers once.

Named_Tawyny: hence why i said "before you've played a response."
