I'm sure I'll think of more.
This is all assuming you're budgetless (which I assumed due to the Tabernacle already listed).

Wee_Dragonaut: While Arbor Elf can be a little inconsistent its ability to tap for blue and black far outweighs the downside. This deck has very little need for the green nonland ramp Llanowar Elves and his brothers provides. The key is to mullighan away hands where you draw arbor elf and don't have a fetchland or dual forest. Getting those turn 1 ramp sources is vitally important for the early win so I use arbor elf l despite its hoops.
BarbeChenue: Thank you! This is honestly the type of deck I have always wanted to make but I never had the right combination of cards/commander before.
Waste Not is a greedy card with little utility outside my wheels, but it does allow for some ridiculous early wins. It also helps alot on ad nauseams since if I get to 5 but don't have engine I can use all my mana for it and a wheel to get much more mana and a new 25 cards. Whispering Madness proved to good for me despite being one mana more expensive than what is ideal. A less "all in" deck could cut both and Helm of Awakening (which I may cut anyways since it is only a viable play on a combo turn) for more interaction. While the turn 2 win rate would likely drop below the 16-20% it has been testing at over my past 100 or so runs (I got 3 turn 2 wins in a 4 game stretch 10 minutes ago!), the deck would be more resilient and have more answers to killer stax pieces.
Indeed Codex Shredder is a neat backup win condition with alot of subtle uses (disrupting topdeck tutors/ regrowth effect/ mox opal activation), but I still may go back to Praetor's Grasp as it is more useful for this deck outside win condition situations.
The added rituals, Culling the Weak and Cabal Ritual fit the all in combo deck wonderfully, but I also think they make the deck more resilient. Just like Carpet of Flowers they make my ramp package less vulnerable to Null Rod and Linvala, Keeper of Silence. Both have tremendous upside on combo turns as well.

Sorry for the late response, I ran Scavenging Ooze in an older iteration of the deck, and it just wasn't strong enough to make the cut moving forward (he requires sinking more mana into him than in frequently comfortable with is the tldr). I did resideboard Wheel of Sun and Moon over some other stuff and made some other cuts and additions to help me deal better with graveyards, and also added a Linvala, Keeper of Silence while I was at it. Thanks for the suggestion though!

I opened a pack of MM3 and Linvala, Keeper of Silence

I opened two boxes, and my haul was decent.
-One of each of the fetches
-Foil and regular Linvala, Keeper of Silence
Basically everything I was looking for...except Liliana of the Veil. That I will have to trade for/buy I guess.

As the title says, I have a Linvala, Keeper of Silence from MM17, and I want to trade it to a non-foil Liliana of the Veil from MM17 and some other stuff. I know there is a little bit of a price difference in my favor, so if someone wants to add some boot, a Basilisk Collar would be a great addition to the trade. Thanks for looking!

I like your deck. +1 from me. I recommend Grasp of Fate (better in multiplayer).
