I would try dropping the 2x Bloodfell Caves in favor of another each of Scoured Barrens and Wind-Scarred Crag . With 50% of your deck being white, you always want or something else. Also, consider losing a Swamp and a mountain in favor of either 2x Secluded Steppe 1x Polluted Mire and 1x Smoldering Crater , because I also think you need some draw.
I feel like a full playset of Impact Tremors should be in this deck, maybe by going down to 3-of on some of your other enchantments. Either that or Hissing Iguanar ... or replace Bogardan Dragonheart and use them both! Which is what I would do. But I love Impact Tremors too much so....
Apostle's Blessing should be in your sideboard, btw.
I know it's not an enchantment, but also consider squeezing in some Altar's Reap s somewhere, because draw.

A cute idea! +1 from me.
Consider Collected Company since it can grab all your pieces except the Clique itself. You'll also probably want a bit of removal - Fatal Push and Path to Exile are great options in your colors. Mortify , Hero's Downfall , Go for the Throat , and Oblivion Ring are some other, slightly less expensive options if you're operating on a budget.
You'll also definitely want some multicolor lands to ensure you aren't screwed out of a particular color when you need it. If you're on a tight budget, Blossoming Sands , Scoured Barrens , Jungle Hollow , and Sandsteppe Citadel are some real cheap options. A step up from there would be Sunpetal Grove , Fortified Village , Canopy Vista , Temple of Plenty , Isolated Chapel , Temple of Silence , Woodland Cemetery , and Temple of Malady . You don't have to spend all your money on shocks and fetches to have a consistent mana base!
Whatever you decide to do, good luck and have fun!

I think Scoured Barrens , Terramorphic Expanse , and Evolving Wilds can be cut for utility lands. Strip Mine , Wasteland , Tectonic Edge , Ghost Quarter , Phyrexian Tower , Bojuka Bog , Emeria, The Sky Ruin all come to mind as better than those 3 lands that I mentioned.
I also you're playing too many lands at 39.
I also think your deck is missing out on a lot of ramp cards. Tithe , Knight of the White Orchid , etc., are all pretty useful. I like creatures that get you lands like the knight (or things like Solemn Simulacrum because they also fuel your sac engines.

Hi Jayd0nlink thx for the suggestions. I think I am going to try to get lands under 1 dollar. I think I am going to add Seat of the Synod . Cascading Cataracts is a nice choice I am going to add. Since this deck is trying to get other peoples cards, I need the opponent to have cards I want. I want to take out Oloro, Ageless Ascetic , also Colossus of Akros . I know Blightsteel Colossus is an amazing add, but its not really a necessary card. Wurmcoil Engine is also usually a automatic add in most EDH decks but, ehhh, I think its going in my Daretti deck. Coastal Breach technically is not necessary. I would rather use target removal, or bounce.
Cards going in------------------------------------------------------------------------
Cards going out----------------------------------------------------------------------- - Blightsteel Colossus - Oloro, Ageless Ascetic - Colossus of Akros - Wurmcoil Engine - Coastal Breach - Inkwell Leviathan - Scoured Barrens - Persuasion
THX for all the suggestions. IF you could tell me how its looking, that would be great. Again, just in case, this deck utilizes other peoples cards, and hands,bouncing stuff they already casted. Letting them draw cards for our use. Helm of the Host can do wonky stuff with our commander, letting us control other peoples hands, more than one.

May I suggest you Crumbling Necropolis , Frontier Bivouac , Opulent Palace , Savage Lands , Jungle Shrine , Murmuring Bosk , Sandsteppe Citadel , Seaside Citadel , Vivid Grove , Vivid Crag , Vivid Creek , Rupture Spire , Transguild Promenade , Gateway Plaza , Exotic Orchard , Evolving Wilds and Terramorphic Expanse
Bloodfell Caves , Cinder Barrens , Dismal Backwater , Forsaken Sanctuary , Foul Orchard , Graypelt Refuge , Highland Lake , Jungle Hollow , Rugged Highlands , Scoured Barrens , Stone Quarry , Submerged Boneyard , Swiftwater Cliffs , Timber Gorge , Tranquil Cove , Wind-Scarred Crag and Woodland Stream .
I think it will increase the consistency of finding your colors. You can even lower your land count to 39 this way.

Hey, CaptainBanana42 has the right idea, you can use Night's Whisper , Sign in Blood and Read the Bones help to smooth your draws. Phyrexian Arena or Underworld Connections are also very helpful. Land Tax , Tithe or Gift of Estates can be good to make sure you have multiple turns of land drops especially since you're playing Godless Shrine .
Another approach to consider is add more cards that can find Skullclamp because it's a draw engine: Enlightened Tutor , Open the Armory , Stoneforge Mystic . Enlightened could also get Necropotence another draw engine. Tutoring in the early game for Ascension, Smothering or Bitterblossom is also very good. Armory or Mystic could also get Deathmantle or Greaves.
Consider improving the manabase?
- Caves of Koilos
- High Market : sac outlet. It's helpful to be able to search for a sac outlet with Expedition Map.
- Ash Barrens : basic landcycling.
- City of Brass
Good luck with your deck.
