I am running:
and Teferi's Time Twist I would also suggest to protect your creatures
Teyo, the Shieldmage is also must have, protects vs many many many things and gives you 2x 0/3 walls
Here's my deck ( work in progress ): https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/04-11-18-YfP-buylist/

Came here from help forum. It would be helpful to know what your deck wants to do, that way I don't end up suggesting bad cuts.
Hydroid Krasis unfortunately does not work the way you want it to. It only draws and gains life for the first half, and then the second half from Riku does nothing and dies as it is a 0/0 with no +1/+1 counters.
A lot of your counterspells like Time Stop are way too much mana. To be more effective you want low drop counterspells like Counterspell , Negate , and Essence Scatter , as you do not have to leave up as much mana in order to use them.
You have a lot of planeswalkers. Planeswalkers in EDH generally draw a lot of hate and end up being a weaker card type overall unless you build your whole strategy around them.
Maybe add some creatures with higher impact. Some of the creatures, like Skarrgan Hellkite , don't really do much in EDH. Wiser includes would have powerful enter the battlefield effects like Terastodon , Woodfall Primus , and Brutalizer Exarch .
Hope this was of some help!

I feel like Dovin's Veto should be a sideboard card against control, as you want to minimise the amount of dead cards in your hand. You can replace them with Thought Erasure which is appropriate in any situation, whereas Dovin's Veto against a creature deck is not that useful. I would also consider removing Essence Scatter from your sideboard as it is very situational. It's better to have removal such as The Eldest Reborn or Cast Down s or even Ixalan's Binding s which are more applicable.

You biggest problem is that 8 of your 24 lands are colorless. I suggest you drop Mobilized District , and only 1x Karn's Bastion (maybe none, to be honest), and only 1x (2x absolute max) on Blast Zone . I would try for absolutely no more than 3x total for colorless lands.
You might also consider Augur of Bolas , but it's not essential.
Just some thoughts! I like the idea of the deck and it's pretty solid-- just too many colorless lands for a control deck.

I would also trade Essence Scatter for Sinister Sabotage . There are so many ways to remove creatures once they hit the board that having a counter that only hits creatures is rarely good, even if it deals with gods. Besides, there aren't many situations were your opponent will be playing a god where you don't have two blue mana.

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.
