Neat build! Morophon seems like a good choice as the red-herring general. I went for Kynaios and Tiro of Meletis for my build since he helps draw into tutors, though I am jealous of your access to black.
Anyway you might like these: Debt of Loyalty , Natural Affinity , Dovescape , Possibility Storm , Replicate, Willbreaker , Baral's Expertise , Harnessed Lightning , Green Sun's Zenith , Spellseeker , Fists of Flame , Verdant Rebirth , Supplant Form , Hatred , Supernatural Stamina

Willbreaker and abilities that put counters on creatures, + sac outlet and they are yours for the foreseeable future.

This is kind of a Hodge-podge mess. It is hard to give advice, because your deck lacks cohesion (and organization).
Maybe put together some comments about what you're hoping the deck to do with specific plays and combos.
At the very least, I suggest you play Willbreaker

I do not see any issue to keep it in. All I am saying is that it's rather a late game card and usually stack decks close out the game through complete lock down as time passes, in which case a cyclonic rift is no longer game changing but rather a win-more card.
Let's say you have one or multiple of the following cards out as the game progresses: Winter Orb , Stasis , Nature's Will , Static Orb , Willbreaker , Hokori, Dust Drinker , Trinisphere ect you name it... a cyclonic rift is not needed anymore since your opponents have access to perhaps one, two mana at most and will not be able to go off or pose much of a threat unless your board gets answered.
However, since above deck is very light on removal, it is perhaps wise to keep it in to answer early threats. However, this only grants a temporary delay if the spell is not expensive.

Very nice deck you got there. Please, allow me to give some input as a fellow cEDH player. First off, I see all stax cards in your deck there is but very few removals. Hence, I kindly would like to share some input on balancing the decks versatility.
Copperhorn Scout doesn't fly, is likely to die and doesn't add much to the deck since you already get to untap with your commander. I would rather suggest to instead add some removal in the form of Ulvenwald Tracker , which adds tremendous values combined with all the untaps
Ethersworn Canonist chances are that your opponents won't play a lot of spells due to Winter Orb ect... and you already got the best one of all ( Eidolon of Rhetoric ), therefore I would rather swap it for some better hate in cEDH which would be Spirit of the Labyrinth
Vryn Wingmare same goes here. I wouldn't play any stax pieces with CMC 3 or higher (too slow and you get better effects for same CMC). For 3 CMC can get Recruiter of the Guard , Eternal Witness , Knight of the Reliquary , Knight of Autumn , Banisher Priest / Fiend Hunter . Note: In your case I would go for removal effects, since you have only Gilded Drake . A Yisan deck would crush yours since it is not affected by stax (since it's a stax deck as well) and would tutor Ulvenwald Tracker and kill all your flyers and dorks.
Archon of Valor's Reach I think this is a classic win-more card which you don't really need to win the game. An alternative would be Gaddock Teeg . However, if you insist on having a high CMC mana drop that completely destroys the game board in your favor, I would like to introduce Willbreaker
Utopia Sprawl / Wild Growth : Since you are a creature deck I would much rather play the remaining mana dorks in order to have more hitters for untap triggers but more importantly, to not be affected by your own stax. Remaining dorks are: Boreal Druid , Priest of Titania ,
Nature's Claim since you are a creature deck and you will be slowing down the game tremendously, I strongly believe that Aura Shards is a better option to go with. It is recurrent and you are very light on removal. What can you do against a Cursed Totem or Humility ?
Tangle Wire I believe you don't really need this stax piece. It's one of the weakest and only holds up a very short time. Instead try for example Nature's Will - this has proven to be quite devastating. Or Living Plane if you seek to lock out all lands of your opponents together with Linvala, Keeper of Silence
Cyclonic Rift seems fine but could also be a win-more card. I presume you would cast this very late in the game and only as an emergency for 2 CMC. Hence, you can ask yourself if this card is really needed to win or if you perhaps would rather have another card that helps to set you up in the early game. I.e. Sylvan Tutor / Fauna Shaman ect...
I hope this was insightful to you. And no, I am not playing Derevi myself ;) But I do actually play a lot against it.

Willbreaker totally blind-sided me. I haven't been on tappedout in a while, and I guess it wasn't making the rounds in Derevi lists back when I was using the site before.
It's very strong and I would definitely consider playing it. My strategy with Derevi is never to really maximize his tap/untap, which is a shame, beyond using him to abuse things like Birthing Pod or Knight of the Reliquary .
What do you suggest taking out for Willbreaker ? And are there any other cards that abuse his tap/untap ability (though I do not care for stax) that you would recommend?
