No, that won't work. A modal double-faced card only has the characteristics of the back face when the back face gets played. Otherwise the game only considers the front face. You can't imprint Flamescroll Celebrant Flip on Isochron Scepter.
However, if you imprinted a modal DFC that's an Instant of mana value 2 or less on the front face (I don't think any exist yet, but there could be in the future), then you could cast either side after activating the Scepter. Remember that a copy of a permanent spell (if that's the side you actually cast) becomes a token on the battlefield after it resolves.

Thanks for your comment legendofa.
I went with Flamescroll Celebrant Flip instead of Burning-Tree Shaman just because is one mana less. For me being a 3/4 instead of a 2/1 is not enough to justify the additional mana. in addition Flamescroll Celebrant Flip has that pseudo-firebreathing ability that rarely comes to matter, but is there. The other option around is Immolation Shaman, but I think is the worst of the bunch since it does not trigger in ALL activated abilities.
In the end is a matter of preference, a 3/4 is out of reach of a Lightning Bolt, but for me that is very situational.
I did not made the effort to try to add some land generating , but feel free to try it :) . Since this tries to be a fast deck it can be too challenging to have available at a very specific time, I just ignore the other side of the Flamescroll Celebrant Flip.

Would Burning-Tree Shaman work in place of Flamescroll Celebrant Flip? It has effectively the same ability, since you don't have any other activated abilities and don't seem to use the side, and it's a 3/4 instead of a pumpable 2/1. About the only potential downside I see is that it's instead of .

Let's crank that damage!
Flamescroll Celebrant Flip, Immolation Shaman , and Scab-Clan Berserker can all come down early and start to chip in damage, and become mana-sinks in the late game if you're not doing anything else. They also bring your mana curve down versus cards like Magma Giant or Emeria Shepherd. If you're punching everyone, Arbiter of Knollridge is going to gain them all life. Why not Sulfuric Vortex to punch them more and prevent life gain?
As for removal, Boros Charm and Abrade feel like auto-includes over Shock or Inescapable Blaze. And since each activation of Pyrohemia is separate damage, you'll kill everyone else's creatures while leaving yours unscathed!
Flame Blitz is great against planeswalkers and replaces itself if no one's playing planeswalkers.

To get the deck count down to 100, here are the cards to remove: Verity Circle, Future Sight, Elsha of the Infinite, Ashnod's Altar, Spell Pierce, Ground Rift. For one reason or the other, they're all not impressive enough for this deck.
Bident of Thassa- Reconnaissance Mission
Feather, the Redeemed- Windfall (Or whatever wheel you like better)
Flame Sweep- Immolating Gyre (Not sure about this one, but seems better)
Dramatic Reversal- Negate
Abrade- Boros Charm
If Enlightened Tutor isn't necessary for your deck, you may want to try Spirit Bonds , as having a permanent way to give kykar indestructible is nice.
Overall, I'd be very aware of what colors your spells cost. Kykar only makes Red mana, and many of your spells cost 1 colored mana. Maybe skew more heavily towards Red, but that's not a hard and fast rule.
