I'd cut uncessary cards like Brilliant Ultimatum and Time Stretch that are DEAD without Dream Halls. Instead, put the cards you need to win when you have Dream Halls to a small number, few Conflux, enough to kill.

That way, your deck has less "dead draws" with Progenitus+X" but no Dream Halls. Same way You don't ever need Summoner's Pact.
There are too many cards that do NOTHING without Dream Halls.

Concentrate on a few key cards, and build the rest around establishing Control (4th Mana Drain) and carddraw.

I play Dream Halls Flux for a while in Vintage now, biggest success here was a Top8 performance at Germany's biggest Vintage event (70).

Here's my current list:
// Lands
4 Underground Sea
1 Volcanic Island
2 Tundra
3 Polluted Delta
1 Tropical Island
3 Flooded Strand
1 Island
1 Tolarian Academy

// Spells
1 Mox Ruby
1 Mind's Desire
1 Research/Development
1 Mox Emerald
1 Mox Jet
4 Dream Halls
1 Mystical Tutor
1 Mana Vault
1 Sol Ring
1 Gaea's Blessing
1 Mana Crypt
1 Demonic Tutor
1 Vampiric Tutor
3 Conflux
1 Mox Pearl
1 Ancestral Recall
1 Mox Sapphire
1 Black Lotus
4 Force of Will
1 Timetwister
1 Ponder
1 Brainstorm
4 Mana Drain
1 Meditate
1 Cruel Ultimatum
1 Intuition
3 Mystic Remora
1 Time Walk
1 Yawgmoth's Will
1 Time Spiral
1 Lim-Dul's Vault

// Sideboard
SB: 1 Conflux
SB: 1 Tendrils of Agony
SB: 1 Echoing Truth
SB: 2 Hurkyl's Recall
SB: 3 Sower of Temptation
