You should be able to play Seat of the Synod with this, yes

Depths/Stage definitely has some variance to it, both in terms of whether you assemble the combo in a timely manner as well as whether the opponent has the best answers. The metagame presence of good answers, as well as the overall speed of the metagame are major factors in determining whether Stage/Depths is a good option.

However, most decks rely on mulligans to find graveyard hate, and Bazaar can be used to dig for the combo, so Stage/Depths is a much more attractive sideboard plan for Dredge than it might be in a more dedicated deck like Dark Times. It can be a "bad" option in terms of metagame and still score quite well simply because it is hard for opponents to answer disruption, dredge, and depths all consistently.

I don't think the normal plan is to use this guy to crop rotate into bazaar, I think the plan is to crop rotate into whichever piece of the dark depths combo you're missing

This isn't a triggered ability but I believe it does in fact prevent creatures from entering with +1/+1 counters

I get that but 3 mana for a crop rotation is a lot

I don't think it goes into Dark Depths sideboards. Green is not trivial to produce and if you wanted this, wouldn't you prefer to just run Crop Rotation directly?

Creatures can't have counters put on them

4 Bazaar of Baghdad
2 Serum Powder
4 Golgari Grave-Troll
4 Stinkweed Imp
4 Golgari Thug
4 Narcomoeba
4 Ichorid
4 Cabal Therapy
4 Bridge from Below
4 Hogaak, Arisen Necropolis
4 Force of Will
4 Force of Negation
2 Mindbreak Trap
4 Petrified Field
4 Mental Misstep
4 Unmask

4 Dark Depths
4 Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth
4 Thespian's Stage
2 Vampire Hexmage
1 Riftstone Portal

I don't believe it removes existing +1/+1 counters
