Either way sweet build!

With Hammer of Nazahn being a thing, you actually don't need that many "equips cost 0" cards in the deck, since anything that can grab an equip can grab the hammer. It makes running a ton of artifact/equip tutors almost a much higher priority.
I've found Rakdos Charm especially good with forger, because it can destroy artifacts, can nuke someone trying to do some sort of infinite creature/Primal Surge strat, and can Exile yards in a cinch. Really good tech card that one.

Here we get to some VERY IMPORTANT additions, Equipments!
- Ring of Xathrid Makes him indestructible at will, and get bigger
- Phyresis and Grafted Exoskeleton Put opponents on a clock, since you only need to do 10 damage to win
- Hammer of Nazahn Insta-equips everything, and gets indestructible
- Swiftfoot Boots Grants protection and speed
- Bloodforged Battle-Axe Goes absolutely stupid if left unchecked

Cool deck, I love how Taigam just amps up the value of instant/sorceries to crazy high levels.
My main qualm I see with this deck is that you have very few ways to protect Taigam. Reconnaissance is powerful and all, but it doesn't get around the fact that Taigam is still targetable/destroyable. A few suggestions:
Darksteel Plate, Hammer of Nazahn, Shield of Kaldra, Indestructibility, Shielded by Faith, take your pick. Taigam has to stay on the field at all costs, you lose him, your deck slows to a crawl. Heck even Bastion Protector would be worth a look.
Counter spells should also be in this deck to help protect Taigam. Supreme Will immediately comes to mind, with rebound it's fantastic. Blue has a long list of counterspells, I suggest you find your favorites and run a few. Cryptic Command would be the MVP of your deck if you had it.
Hope this helps, happy spell-slinging :)

Silverblade Paladin is another card I'm planning on replacing, but with what is still up in the air. I'm waiting until after the full Ixalan spoiler before I start finding potential additions.
Having to discard cards due to a overloaded hand is a significant annoyance, and Sword of Fire and Ice's mandatory card draw trigger can fill my hand faster than I can empty it. Reliquary Tower is something I'm playing with to see if its inclusion is necessary.

Update after having played the Deck a few times, some things need to change:
I'm swapping Kemba, Kha Regent with Balan, Wandering Knight. This leads to the removal of Kemba's cat tokens and thus (cat) tribal cards must go. I'm also exchanging some other stuff just for efficiency.
- Out: Chariot of Victory, Haunted Cloak, Infiltration Lens, Konda's Banner, Ring of Thune, Stoneforge Masterwork
- In: Lightning Greaves, Hammer of Nazahn, Darksteel Plate, Sword of Feast and Famine, Sword of Fire and Ice, Godsend, Masterwork of Ingenuity
- Out: Mentor of the Meek, Raksha Golden Cub, Regal Caracal
- In: Avacyn, Angel of Hope, Stoneforge Mystic
In the end i've removed one wipe, removed tribal cards and swapped ineffective equipment with better equipment.
