Replicate (Blue) (When you play this spell, copy it for each time you paid its replicate cost. You may choose new targets for the copies.)
Tap target permanent.

I like the theme of this, would you consider cards that can copy themselves and have the words “Cast the copy”?
From reading the text on the commander I think that would trigger her twice,
AEthertow or other cards with conspire and/or storm and replicate.
Chandra, Pyromaster ultimate allows you to cast copies.
You could also use cards with the cipher mechanic, Hidden Strings .
Just a few ideas :)

Just say “I have a response before my real Gigadrowse resolves. Do the others resolve?”
You don’t have to say what your response will be, and if your opponent says yes, the copies will resolve down to the real one, where you can then respond, as you had clearly stated.

Situation: I cast Gigadrowse and replicate it x times to tap my opponent's x permanents (the main spell and one of the copies are both targeting the same one of their permanents). I plan to Remand the main Gigadrowse back to my hand once the rest of the copies have resolved, but I also want to keep it available while the copies resolve in case my opponent tries something. I don't want to manually go through the stack asking if each individual Gigadrowse copy resolves until the physical card, so I want to just say something like "Do they resolve?" and then if my opponent says yes, I'd Remand my Gigadrowse after all the copies have resolved. Am I allowed to do this, or does my saying "Do they resolve?" automatically imply that I am not going to cast any more spells? Thanks.

However, I'm not going to trade it down, so if you want to make a trade, I would only trade for your Doubling Season as a 1 to 1.
Either way, I'm still interested in the cards you listed, and I have some other wants from your binder:
- Elspeth, Sun's Champion (THS)
- Grafdigger's Cage
- Torpor Orb
- Welding Jar
- Etched Champion x2
- Wipe Away
- Sai, Master Thopterist
- Echoing Truth
- Groundswell x3
- Cranial Plating x2
- Galvanic Blast x2
- Hibernation x2
- Dragon's Claw x2
- Trinket Mage
- Patrician's Scorn
- Think Twice
Total Price: $40.82
I'd be interested in trading those for these cards out of what you listed:
Spellseeker , Gamble , Talisman of Hierarchy , Neheb, Dreadhorde Champion , Cruel Celebrant , Ugin, the Ineffable , Emmara, Soul of the Accord , Immolation Shaman , Bolas's Citadel , Flux Channeler , Evolution Sage , Finale of Revelation , Karn's Bastion , Inspiring Vantage , and Rugged Prairie . (Total: $39.79)
Also, I just like to say that I'm sorry for falling though on that trade we'd worked out like 6 months ago. I believe it was for my Leyline of the Void . I wasn't on this site for a while, and it kinda slipped my mind. Neither of us had sent anything at that point, so it's not a big deal, but I remembered it when I saw your username and thought I should mention it.

Flooremoji I think you're right. It pains me to get rid of one of the cards that inspired the idea, but it's just removal fodder at best in most matchups. One mana to get rid of a three mana card that doesn't do anything but possibly get bigger isn't a great trade-off from my end.
Demarge I went ahead and looked at the mtg goldfish meta page as well. Humans is the most popular deck, which uses a ton of creatures, but it's pretty much the only one, yeah. Right now, decks are very non-creature spell oriented. I think Gideon Jura would fit if I can justify his being a finisher for the deck. Tamiyo, the Moon Sage can at least keep lands and troublesome artifacts tapped down, and serves as draw power when enough creatures are tapped down. If you had to choose one, which would you choose? I'm leaning toward Gide on for the 6/6 indestructible for 5 mana.
aswordforthefallen As Demarge pointed out, the bulk of the decks right now aren't going to be focused on using creatures, so using creatures for them is a good way to go, I think. Hunted Phantasm is a good way to ensure that I can still get value from Verity Circle . That does incur the question for whether I should go wide with temporary effects that hit multiple creatures like Downpour and Feeling of Dread , or whether I should keep a smaller number of creatures consistently being tapped with enchantments like Curse of Chains . As for all-around value planeswalkers, what do you have in mind? I see Narset, Parter of Veils , Teferi, Time Raveler , and Teferi, Hero of Dominaria used a good deal.
Gidgetimer I don't think Pickles is what I want to go for. It's a neat way to work tap-down control, but I'd rather focus on cards that work specifically with tapping rather than abusing the morph mechanic. Thanks for the suggestion, though! It is a really interesting deck.
Funkydiscogod Quiet contemplation is a really good fit for the deck. The only problem I have with it is that by freeing up space for more traditional cards, I move away from my preferred aesthetic. Part of the problem here is that I've chosen a really inefficient form of control. For the one mana I could use on Gigadrowse , I could spend it on Path to Exile . What cards would you suggest to complement Quiet Contemplation while staying true to having tap-down effects being the primary method of control? Opt , for example, is a one mana draw card that can turn into a two-mana Frost Breath hybrid. I can't think of much else other than draw cards, though, that fit in the control scheme that don't remove the need for tap-down effects entirely. Do you think Frost Titan is too expensive to play, or is its built-in protection enough to warrant using it at 6 mana?
Thank you so much, everyone that's contributed! It means a lot to me that you're helping me out. I've had this idea for the longest time, but I just haven't been able to make it work by myself. You people rock!

You're going to have the majority of your main deck idea, the cards that work amazing against creature strategy, in your side-board. I know that's going to sound like it's going against what you want, but game 1 is going to be feeling out your opponent, which also means that you're going to have main-board several of your silver bullets. Hunted Phantasm for RDW, good all-round 'walkers if those are interesting to you, Gigadrowse , stuff that works on most any deck, especially ones that are light on creatures. Then, when you sniff out an opponent that would just absolutely get wrecked if their stuff were tapped out turn after turn, that's when you bring in your game plan and tap them down without mercy.

I'm playing a budget UR Delver of Secrets Flip deck featuring Nivmagus Elemental and Gigadrowse , which makes the matchup miserable for mono-green infect. If you use it to tap down their lands at the perfect time, they lose their ability to keep up. e.g. being turn 2 in their upkeep tap down their land, they can respond, but it forces them to use their combat tricks in their upkeep and prevents any surprise blowouts.

How about some Snapcaster to recast the fogs/keep the turn engine going when you get enough mana for it? Gigadrowse could be useful in the sideboard for control matchups.
