Oh can't believe I missed those. Worship is definitely going in. Isn't Privileged Position strictly better than Asceticism here? Also are there any advantages to running Aspect of Mongoose over Lightning Greaves?
Oketra the True is just there because we desperately need more indestructible creatures, especially if we're adding even more of these creatures-matter cards. Maybe Oath of Nissas would help us find copies of the better gods?

I'm a bit confused by some card choices though. Is Savage Summoning just for getting Cryptic Serpent out EOT when your opponent taps out, so it doesn't get removed? Wouldn't it be strictly more versatile and powerful to just play 4x any 1 mana counterspell instead?

You already (correctly) explained that "tiers" refers to usage, and I already said that if we want to be semantically accurate, we can use a different word like "prospective." Further arguing the point isn't constructive, as C.LewisMTG just pointed out, and I said it's arguing semantics. "Semantics" refers to the meaning of words, so "arguing semantics" has come to refer to aimlessly arguing about the meaning of a word.
Also, whether or not the site "was designed strictly for brewing" (if we're arguing semantics, then you're incorrect because I only said "dedicated to"), the fact is this list is a brew. So it doesn't make sense to discuss tiers here since this list is tier 3 by definition, whereas we're obviously trying to change that.
If you do want to debate the semantics, maybe we can coin a term for a metric that runs parallel "tiers" that measures the usage of the deck in a metagame at mixed strategy Nash equilibrium instead of the current usage (tier)? If you don't like "prospective tier", maybe "power level" or "expected tier"? Another person might be tired of arguing semantics at this point, but you're in luck because I actually study philosophy, linguistics, and computer science!
Edit: agh! put the wrong link and it wouldn't let me edit

Thanks for the vote of confidence! Far more competitive might be a stretch though. Like other people have observed, Swans is pretty much strictly worse than Twin since it just has to run fewer spells.
He's probably just a troll anyways. Defining tiers based on usage makes zero sense on a website dedicated to brewing, like I said before. If he's insisting semantics, we can just call it a prospective tier 1.5-2.5 instead.

Currently you're torn between very aggressive/efficient (Throne of the God-Pharaoh, Wayward Servant, Plague Belcher) and very slow (Wander in Death, Stir the Sands) cards. A deck can do one or the other, otherwise it's just bad at both. Aggro will only play aggressive cards, and even midrange will play aggressive and efficient cards, but neither can afford to play truly slow cards. Those are reserved for control.
That's why I suggested you add more creatures (because they're typically more efficient). If you want to be more midrange/control, you could consider those slower cards.
