Thanks for asking! You're all welcome to critique or ask any questions regarding this deck and I'll try to give some meaningful input.
Mnemonic Betrayal I feel like is more of a sideboard card that is incredibly powerful in the right meta. If it doesn't do much against decks you regularly play against feel free to drop it for the next most powerful card of your preference. It could be replaced by a cantrip, mana rock or a card draw engine like Sylvan Library if you continuously play against random opponents. You're right in that it's probably not worthy of being maindeck in this "stocklist". Otherwise you could use it as a flex splot for whatever card that works well in your meta like Verity Circle , Rhystic Study or Compost for instance.
Seat of the Synod is in the list to keep the singleton aspect of the manabase for Tainted Pact and enabling mox opal or niche Transmute Artifact synergies. If you play against cards like Null Rod a lot feel free to replace it with something that is more useful for you which could be for example Twilight Mire or Tarnished Citadel . Personally I don't like Tarnished Citadel due to heavy life loss which hurts your Bolas's Citadel and Ad Nauseam potential.

I am trying to finish an edh deck. Below are cards I am looking for. My binder is out of date. So if you have an updated looking for list would be helpful. I'm taking apart 6 edh decks and have lots of edh playables. For the reserve list cards listed, I would be willing to give a little extra for, or trade some of my reserve list cards (like cradle, metal worker, etc.).
Carpet of Flowers
Chain of Vapor
Elvish Spirit Guide
Pact of Negation .
Wall of Roots .
Yawgmoth's Will .

Buried Alive and Final Parting should go in. Ramos, Dragon Engine could be fun. Also more ramp would help a lot. Cultivate Kodama's Reach and Farseek can't be underestimated in 5 color. Even Coldsteel Heart could be helpful. The vivid lands, like Vivid Grove would be pretty helpful. Tarnished Citadel is another affordable option if you get it from the right seller.

Darien often is just a Soul Sister's deck that likes to deal damage to itself. It uses Darien and an effect like Soul's Attendant , Ajani's Welcome or Suture Priest ... Anointer Priest ... Angelic Chorus , Healer of the Pride , Impassioned Orator , Pious Evangel Flip, and Auriok Champion ? I think those are all of them.
Then you just tap a Tarnished Citadel , deal 3 to yourself, gain 3 tokens, 3+ life, and have some effects that abuse the token generation. I think Mentor of the Meek or Cathars' Crusade style effects.

With that mana base, your check lands are usually going to enter tapped, particularly in the critical early stages of the game. The odds that you (a) have a shock land on the field, and (b) the shock land is an appropriate type for your check land are not great.
Instead of running the 10 tri lands, consider some of the following:
Aether Hub - an inexpensive land that provides fast colour fixing in the early game (when hitting your colours matters most), and still provides mana in the later game.
Exotic Orchard - another budget land that, while a bit unpredictable, can usually be sufficient in a multiplayer game.
Gemstone Mine - colour fixing that sticks around a few turns.
Meteor Crater - your curve is a bit high, so you might want to forego this one, but I figured I would put it on your radar.
Reflecting Pool - another land that can usually get you the colours you need. Works particularly well if you have other rainbow lands.
Tarnished Citadel - emergency colour fixing for 3 life, with the option to simply tap for colourless if you do not have specific colour requirements.

You need ways to produce mana outside of esper if you want to cast spells that are't esper, like Cascading Cataracts . You already have Mana Confluence and City of Brass , which is good, but what about Tarnished Citadel ?

I'm currently short Arid Mesa , Botanical Sanctum , City of Brass , Gemstone Mine , Tarnished Citadel , Thran Quarry , and Volcanic Island . Volcanic Island aside, it's not too unaffordable but for the time being it's a bit hard for me to justify spending because I don't get many chances to play Animar. My LGS doesn't have a cEDH crowd and the combo speed of the deck, as it currently is, is already a bit much for the people who usually play there.
