Blisterpod is a great card, but if it doesn't chump a creature the deck cannot generate a creature. I would swap it for another fog effect like Angelsong. This card will not be dead during any point in the game because of the cycling effect and ensures you do not get overwhelmed by aggressive decks. A turn 1 play that could replace Blisterpod would be Ancient Stirrings so you can dig for anything you need. Nest Invader could also replace Blisterpod if you are looking for more token spawners, although it is not colorless. Too often you may rely on your main synergy so finding other sources of damage or getting more card advantage could be useful. Matter Reshaper is a good body that can get you your token spawners or Desolation Twin and Spawning Bed offers value as the game progresses.

Hey, Tectonic Reformation which is included in the precon gives you a repeatable source of low mana cost cycling using lands. This is wanted to repeatedly trigger Gavi, Slide, Drift and Haven. Idyllic Tutor is worth including because it can tutor for one of Reformation, Slide, Drift or Haven and you can recur it with Archaeomancer to tutor again.
There's a lack of ramp here and ramp is a fundamental part of all Commander decks. You want to make room in your deck for ramp since ramp also is color fixing. In the precon are Sol Ring/Arcane Signet these are good rocks for ramp, add them to your deck. There's also three Signets in the precon I suggest adding those rocks too.
Chromatic Lantern is not included in the precon, but it's a good mana rock with Reformation because then you can tap any land to make red mana to cycle a land with Reformation. Raugrin Crystal is the new Jeskai mana rock that has cycling.
Smothering Tithe is a fantastic card for repeatable ramp in multiplayer Commander since your opponents, much more than not, are not going to pay the two mana to deny you a treasure when they draw therefore each time around the table you're going to make treasures and these treasures can be saced to make any color of mana. Smothering is also good with Reformation because treasures can make red mana.
Some good budget cards with cycling to consider adding:
- Nimble Obstructionist
- Valiant Rescuer
- Cast Out
- Ominous Seas
- Reconnaissance Mission
- Countervailing Winds
I offer more advice including what cards to consider cutting. Good luck with your deck.

I am hardly a spike, so if I say something stupid, forgive me. That said, your choice in fogs seems a little... suboptimal?
Angelsong and Haze of Pollen can draw you a card if you don't need the fog. Ethereal Haze , Holy Day , and Pause for Reflection are all cheaper than Dawn Charm and Clinging Mists (and really, when is Fateful Hour gonna be active?). Winds of Qal Sisma and Defend the Hearth are one-sided wraths.

Do you think Angelsong could belong somewhere in here, either in the side or in main?

This is a tricky one, I would seriously consider splashing a third color for access to cards that fetch artifacts like Fabricate but the mana fixing becomes a serious issue. I would happily drop AEther Membrane to do this but a three color deck just sounds inherently unreliable in terms of mana.
I mainly wanted to try to build around Isochron Scepter and my thoughts other than straight burn would be Doom Blade , Geth's Verdict , Mana Leak , Angelsong , Assassin's Trophy , Bile Blight , Commencement of Festivities , Dampen Thought , Dash Hopes , Deflecting Palm , Essence Scatter , Feed the Clan , Growth Spiral , Heroes' Reunion , Increasing Vengeance , Nourish , Raise the Alarm , Redirect , Solidarity of Heroes , Turn to Frog , Twincast , Veil of Secrecy , Whitesun's Passage .
I don't know, it just seems like the scepter could be a really awesome addition to a lot of decks but you would want the scepter plus a fetch for it as well.

Hey, I like the changes and I see 100 cards.
Expanding on the Sunforger package of instants in place of some equipment is a good choice. Dawn Charm is overlooked budget card with Sunforger. All it's modes are relevant and one of them is Angelsong . Angel's Grace , Chance for Glory with Sunforger and Mistveil creates an extra turn combo loop. Add in the fact that Aurelia gives you two combat steps this combo can do a lot of Commander damage or kill the table. Godo, Bandit Warlord is another one card win condition if he's equip with Helm of the Host . He untaps himself which means each token of him that's created with Helm untaps itself and has haste. Each time a token is created of Godo that's a new instance of him thus you get a another combat phase each time a token attacks. He can also search for and put Helm or any other equipment right onto the battlefield.

Do you think maybe mono white would be more effective? Drop Rites of Flourishing in favor of Temple Bell or Mikokoro, Center of the Sea/Geier Reach Sanitarium...and swap the green fogs in for Ethereal Haze/Holy Day or Angelsong.
Reliquary Tower is another tool to use for stocking up on answers for resolved threats like Oblivion Ring/Wrath of God.... in addition to Luminarch Ascension perhaps Drawing into Urzatron lands to hardcast Emrakul, the Aeons Torn could probably happen faster than drawing out the opponents library?
