I play Enduring Ideal and search and play Dovescape.

On the next upkeep Enduring Ideal should be cast again.

Is Enduring Ideal countered by Dovescape, or can I search for other enchantments?

No, a copy of Enduring ideal won't be countered by Dovescape because the copy isn't cast.

The reminder text for Epic says:

At the beginning of each of your upkeeps, copy this spell except for its epic ability.

However, copies are not cast and thus are not affected by Dovescape:

706.10. To copy a spell, activated ability, or triggered ability means to put a copy of it onto the stack; a copy of a spell isn’t cast and a copy of an activated ability isn’t activated. [...]

  • Don't know, the links are working for me. The format is [mtg:cardname], though certain special characters like ' cause problems.

Enduring Ideal is not cast, since you cannot cast spells, a copy of it (without Epic) is just put on the stack. Since it is not being cast Dovescape doesn't care about it and it is not countered.
