Clue energy five color

Making an EDH with Ramos, Dragon Engine that works pretty effectively with energy, I'm thinking about deconstructing my clue deck to add clues to it. Deck works by just having good clue synergy basically, giraphur aether grid and such, Door to Nothingness for the luls with Ramos' ability and a Tezzeret (doesn't matter which) and I'm just curious to see what others would put in a deck like this to make it work effectively. Biggest hurdle is adding in Time Sieve as it's a key card to my plan being able to take infinite turns if I can make enough clues per turn, and Mechanized Production as a good win-con in that event. What are your guy's thoughts?
I'm lacking a Tireless Tracker and Erdwal Illuminator but for investigate I have Tamiyo's Journal Weirding Wood Jace's Scrutiny Briarbridge Patrol Ongoing Investigation and Ulvenwald Mysteries the current deck build is very artifact focused and if possible I'd like to keep it that way.

I don't think you'd get enough support for the clues to make it worth it

Clues feels like a pretty shallow mechanic to build around for EDH. Its just slow card draw, and there aren't enough payoff cards to make them that great. Mechanized Production is a way to make them actually do something but they aren't very powerful alone. I'd stick with energy for the deck, diluting the primary strategy with clues seems unnecessary and non-synergysitc.

If you just want artifact tokens and don't care what, Curse of Opulence, Brass's Bounty, Revel in Riches, Storm the Vault, Mechanized Production, Thopter Spy Network will all net you quite a few things to work with.
