Imprint Dramatic Reversal on Isochron Scepter. Tap Codex Shredder. Tap Isochron Scepter. This untaps both. Rinse. repeat.

Interesting concept, but eh, what's your win condition?

Personally I use Codex Shredder as one of my backup win conditions. It's graveyard recursion which in turn can be recurred with Salvagers (man that card is good) and with either a Paradox Engine loop or Dramatic Scepter can be used to mill each opponent.
I also sport Thopter Foundry + Sword of the Meek. It's a bit janky but I like the package. Plus my meta can be a bit more creature heavy so it helps to counter that. Plus the inherent synergy with Tymna the Weaver is a nice bonus. The lifegain also helps with stuff like Necropotence and Thopter Foundry gives Bloom Tender the other 4 colours for 2 mana. And Thopter Foundry an be paired with either Mana Crypt or Mana Vault + Auriok Salvagers to make a thopter for , or Sol Ring for . As I said, a bit janky but still does enough work.

Hey, so I've been play testing your list and I've noticed your cmc feels a little high. A couple observations:
I tried Karn Liberated and Ugin, the Spirit Dragon in my own list and drawing them early is harsh. Have you considered Codex Shredder in the possible situation where discarding them is necessary early on for daretti's +2? It's great for returning them to your hand when needed and throws a card in the yard each turn which can be nice. I replaced both with Unstable Obelisk (this is iffy since it doesn't help get daretti out early, I might put karn back in after testing) and All Is Dust(which I see you run anyway) since both can be easily recurred via daretti, Past in Flames or Recoup .
How is Clock of Omens feeling to you? It seems pretty situational and while it can be used for ramp I haven't found it to be effective most of the time.
Contagion Engine is awesome for a one sided board wipe, but I wonder if the slot wouldn't be better for a 2 mana rock allowing daretti to come out a turn early and start +2ing? The same could be said for Tormenting Voice substitutin Fellwar Stone and/or Thought Vessel(or one of the rituals).
Lastly I would say Mirrorworks and Mindslaver are great but situational.The mirror plays better the sooner it comes out but later on it can be kind of meh. Mindslaver is obviously just good with daretti but it does paint a target in 4-player, does it generally generate enough value for you to use it and still survive a potentially hostile table?
Anyways thanks for looking at my build and your suggestions. I hope mine help you out too!

One great stax piece that would really hurt opponents but parity would be broken for you is Trinisphere.
Hedron Crawler, Manakin, Millikin, Skittering Invasion, Blinkmoth Urn, Lotus Bloom, Mox Diamond, Lotus Vale, Sword of the Animist and Urza's Incubator can be used for fast ramp into emr options. Urza Tron could also be run here you do have some tutor for it.
all may be worth looking into :)
Very nice list man Emrakul needs more EDH love

Wow, they're really overdoing it with big 2CMC creatures with drawbacks.
I doubt the galleon replaces Codex Shredder as colorless recursion in EDH since it requires a decent amount more effort, but you might play both.
Hellrider for vamps is alright. The compass seems way too circumstantial for my liking. That mythic may be horrible, but it's notably one of the few ways to draw many cards attached to an instant or sorcery without paying X, so it does have a niche.

Mesmeric Orb is the best card to accomplish your decks name/strategy :)
Codex Shredder isnt bad either
