king-saproling, thank you for suggesting cards for this deck. You are the first and for that I am glad.
However, I don't know how much I want those cards... I addressed Basalt Monolith in the "About Infinite Mana" tab thing saying that I don't want cards that are too cheesy. Anyone could see that Basalt would be very strong, so it's not a very interesting choice for this deck. It's also a card I ran in the first iteration of the deck and it wasn't very fun since the deck isn't very strong nor competitive. Gemstone Array is a very cool card, I personally like storage effects even though they aren't that strong usually, but this deck feels more synergistic when I use tappy stuff, and tappy stuff sounds cool. This deck also has a fair bit of ramp as well. Livio, Oathsworn Sentinel is another cool card, but I think Flickerform or Angel of Condemnation are better and I've already taken out Flickerform. Mimic Vat is really neat and does have an advantage over Osgir, the Reconstructor and Feldon of the Third Path in that you can use opponents' creatures or stop a specific creature from entering the graveyard, but it's less flexible when it comes to choice and I don't know if I need more recursion.
I don't know if it's necessary for me to talk this much, but I felt like it was giving you more respect. If you think your suggestions are good and I just missed why, please tell me. I want to do what's best for this deck, especially since I made it so unfocused despite the investment I put in.

As a baseline, you'll need to add lands, which I'm sure you know. Since you're making Treasure and Gold tokens in this deck you'd probably be good with roughly 34-36 lands, leaning more to the most mana color you'll need, say like a 25/25/50 split if thats what you're going for.
While I do like Gisela, Blade of Goldnight and Tariel, Reckoner of Souls they have a high mana cost as most good Angels do, while Tariel synergizes well with your strategy she does have that randomness factor and would advise a more reliable and consistent option. Gisela speeds up the game. As a player this is good and accelerates the game, but as an opponent my first priority would be to get rid of Gisela and that paints an even bigger target on your back.
Restoration Angel is fantastic for your edict effects, at face value. You'd need to run flicker effects to really make it shine. Basandra, Battle Seraph seems really good, forcing people to attack is nice and it prevents players from casting anything in combat, however it means instant speed removal will be used before the combat step. This also stops you from casting spells in combat.
As for Human synergy, I really like Teysa Karlov , Thalisse, Reverent Medium , Queen Marchesa , General's Enforcer and Fain, the Broker . All of them work very well with the token strategy, especially Teysa and Thalisse
Things I wouldn't necessarily include are cards like Juri, Master of the Revue (as good as she is with Fling ), General Kudro of Drannith (incidental unless you go all in on the Human tribal strategy), Devout Chaplain (same reason for Kudro), or Dire Fleet Hoarder (basically a one time effect unless you jump through the Teysa hoop, yes it does give you a Treasure token, but at a cost of 2 mana and the creature dying).
As for Demons I really like the Archfiend of Depravity and Rakdos, the Showstopper , their mass sacrifice effects are wonderful, however Rakdos does effect your board heavily unless you play to his synergies, you wouldn't want Negan to die to his effect would you?
-When it comes to your Dragons, I think you hit the nail on the head, nothing I would really change or take out. Allows for Magda, Brazen Outlaw to have a decent outlet if you don't want an artifact.
-Finally, the other things you've got going. Dockside should just be an auto-include, albeit a heavy price tag, but if you can get one you should definitely include it.
Dark Impostor , while mana intensive is still a decent mana sink that can function effectively as targeted removal. Definitely keep your edict creatures, they are super useful and trigger Negan, and thats what you want.
Starnheim Aspirant is useful if you go super heavy into the Angel theme, but if you skimp on the Angel theme this could very often be a dead card.
Storm-Kiln Artist , I like this a lot for this deck, can be a beater, and generates value.
Vault Robber , seems bad, and bad to do. Synergizes with Magda and makes Treasure tokens, but thats really it... PLUS it requires you to have a creature in YOUR grave. I'd cut this, but if you have a reason to play it I'm not seeing immediately play it in your deck.
Viscera Seer , good card, good sac outlet, not much else to say.
Creatures I'd include based on what I've seen: Solemn Simulacrum , Burnished Hart and Mayhem Devil . Some good ramp and a decent damage dealer if you'd like to play a cheap one. Plus the Devil is great at just 3 mana.
Angelic Renewal is basically a one time effect. While good, there are better recursion spells out there, but this one does fit the Angel theme so thats really cool. :D
Aside from that, I think that's a decent spread of enchantments. Nothing to add really, love the inclusion of the Sagas and Revel in Riches .
- Shiny Impetus is good for token generation, but don't play a sacrifice creature to have that player just get rid of it, deceptively good and bad.
The Eldest Reborn is also another good saga to include if you want another edict type effect, and when it does go off you can get what you want from players' graveyards.
The three signets for your colors, Arcane Signet as well.
Panharmonicon to double up on edict effects.
- Approach of the Second Sun : Does provide you an effective way to win, very good card for a deck like this especially if the game goes long.
- Brass's Bounty . Love it, not much else to say.
- Contract Killing fits the theme and the flavor. Love it.
- Damnable Pact is good card draw for you, and useful against someone who flies too close to the sun.
- Debt to the Deathless / Entreat the Angels . While both good, is not something you want to draw into early game or open with. I would highly suggest playing less finisher cards like these, but if you wanna play em don't let me stop you.
- Killing Wave . Love it, super good.
- Necrotic Hex . Expensive, but great effect.
- Excavation Technique is actually a really good spell. Synergizes with Magecraft like WoTC intended and is deceptive for your opponents.
- Increasing Devotion / Finale of Glory . One of these is better than the other. I'll let you decide which is which.
- Heartless Pillage / Seize the Spoils . I really like both of these cards as spells and thematically. They work well for Negan and as spells for you to Pillage and Loot with as you please.
- Ruinous Ultimatum / Tragic Arrogance : Both are fantastic, especially as finisher spells. I'd make a point to include both so you have an option when you're ready to win(IE: Revel in Riches in play with a ton of creatures on board, its akin to vandalblasting with a lettuce on board).

I've tested most of these and usually ended up cutting them for small reasons.
Notably, I originally had a bunch of cool things for Flickerform to do, but it was a bit clunky, needed too much white, and doesn't bring things back when I need them. I decided to use Eldrazi Displacer instead. I have cards that cover the effects of most of those cards, so I'm not losing out on effects. Mistveil Plains is good, but for my purposes, Elixir of Immortality is easier to use.

Thoughts on these? Open the Armory, Sword of the Paruns, Mistveil Plains (good with sunforger), Tithe (finds mistveil, can be played with sunforger), Inventors' Fair, War Room, Goblin Engineer, Heliod's Pilgrim, Flickerform

I believe that Mono-White specifically is not as lacking in card draw as many people believe. It may be true that the card draw is not as of high of quality, but it definitely exists. I'm going to make a small list of cards/combos in Mono-White that draw more cards than you paid to play it (i.e., I cast two cards and discard a card to make the combo, but I draw 4 out of it) that I think are better than Court of Grace (all of these have already existed). (Also, of course, artifacts are fair game. Artifacts do indeed get used in Mono-White, and should be treated as such.)
My personal favorite:
One card combo (my second favorite):
Ones that give only lands:
Ones that are wheel based:
(Unfortunately draws opponents cards too, but you will be drawing more)
Ones that are weenie based:
Also, I don't think that Phyrexian Arena is very good. Your point that it was used in a "fast" format (standard) is invalid because games of cEDH are faster than standard, not the other way around, with games ending possibly by turn 3.

The repeatable ones are a little more expensive mana wise, but if you want repeatable, you could put in Conjurer's Closet, Flickerform, Angel of Condemnation, Eldrazi Displacer, Galepowder Mage, and if you have the budget Emiel the Blessed.

Flickerform is good as a way to blink your creatures to get enter-the-battlefield effects. I don't think it's that great for protecting creatures, I think equipment like Commander's Plate (particularly on Rograhk since red doesn't do creature removal particularly well) and Darksteel Plate or even stuff like Swiftfoot Boots do a much better job at protection than Flickerform. Copy effects like Fork are never bad, I don't think it's a bad investment.
