I have a Teferi deck that I sometimes play on MWS. It is viable but not a sure winner, I'd stop playing it if it was. I play erayo but do not build the deck around him in any way. I do feel that while you can play 40-50 counters if you want (there are more than enough). the Highlander format means that you cannot rely on having early counters. I do not think that anything needs to be banned for 1 on 1 matches, though I hav'n't explored Erayo to his full. People online seem to have built decks to deal with such a metagame change.

I think that massive LD is not a way to have fun in EDH...I force the opponent to run counterspells or only cheap spells...not rzeally a fun option
on the opposite discard or countermagic is not such a problem...

Is there an easy way to post the list or would I have to type it all out?

Whenever I have managed to flip Erayo, it has been in my opponents turn countering the second thing they play then something at end of turn.

Dueling against Grand Arbiter Augustin is pretty tough.

Especially when the deck is created simply to increase the cost of every spell, and to limit what spells you can cast and/or how many.

It's an uphill battle starting at turn four.

I can forsee pretty much any duel involving at least one permission-based general being a race to see who gets theirs first, and then ending the game.
