maybe some more rocks + Metallurgic Summonings
suggested cuts Kataki, War's Wage, Magus of the Tabernacle (stax is mean and impacts your own rocks & tokens), Archangel of Tithes (seems kind of a pain to cast on-curve?), Grand Abolisher (you're not that combo-y)

I would cut Academy Rector,Arena Rector,Magus of the Tabernacle, Mycosynth Lattice,Karmic Justice, Propaganda, Price of Glory,Ghostly Prison,Solemnity, Sun Titan, Sphinx's Revelation, and Meekstone. I saw on reddit you were looking for a highly tuned deck and the above cards really only have place in a casual environment.
Stax decks often run into the issue of just adding stax and hoping to win, but that just leads to long drawn out games with no interaction. First thing you need to do is come up with win cons. How are you winning? I see iso rev, but the only payoff is Urza. I see you have a few pieces of hard locks in place, but you arent including the often played halves (Drannith Magistrate,Lavinia, Azorius Renegade). Youre playing a blue deck, but running Price of Glory which removes blues best trait which is stack interaction. You arent running wheels which work great with Narset, Parter of Veils in both they stax your opponent while getting you a new hand. You are running a ton of board wipes which in a more competitive environment wont do much.
Approach of the Second Sun is a slow and casual card but right now it seems like the most consistent way to win with this deck so only remove it once you come up with better win cons. You're in the colors to run Breach lines, so maybe try to incorporate that? Why not runRest in Peace and Helm of Obedience as you are in blue and white so you specialize in artifact and enchantment tutors? Add the other halves of the hard locks, toss in Muddle the Mixture as an easy way to tutor for Lavinia and Drannith, and that should turn them from a magical christmas land scenario to something that should happen more often. If youre in red, you should be playing Dockside Extortionist as it is currently one of the best pieces of ramp in cEDH. To be honest, you really should check out this website (https://cedh-decklist-database.com/) and look at decks that share your colors and gameplan, and see where you can make improvements.
Cards I would add Windfall,Wheel of Fortune, Drannith Magistrate, Lavinia, Azorius Renegade, Dockside Extortionist, Gamble, Muddle the Mixture, Force of Will, Force of Negation, Mana Drain, Counterspell, Dispell, Flusterstorm, Mental Misstep, Ghostly Pilferer, Gilded Drake, Hushbringer, Rest in Peace, and Helm of Obedience.
Hopefully this helps.

Yeah as you said people seem to have very different reactions to effectively similar tactics, for example if I lock the board with a Magus of the Tabernacle + Winter Orb with an Azors elecutors out I'd recieve much more hate than if I threw down a Melira, Sylvok Outcast + Woodfall Primus even though the later is far nastier and far more difficult to break out of

Hey awsome deck who doesn't love one sided board wipes? The only two things that come to mind are first cause of Avacyns already demanding cost I would go a little harder on the board lock some mono white allstars in my book are Glowrider/Winter Orb/Vryn Wingmare/Baird, Steward of Argive/Magus of the Tabernacle/Lodestone Golem.
Then second because of that same factor of mana I would just suggest since your already running 30 basics just switch them to snow lands run an Extraplanar Lens and add a Scrying Sheets to consistently filter out lands and not waste draws.
One last thing since your mono white and doing boardwipes I have to recommend one of my favorite cards of all time Scourglass amazing art and its genuinely a good card, good luck! hope these suggestions help in some way, let me know if you have any questions about any of them

Zenzu, Nemesis of Magic
Legendary Creature - Merfolk Wizard
Whenever another creature you control enters the battlefield choose a player. That creature has protection from the chosen player as long as you control Zensu, Nemesis of Magic.
Legendary version of True-Name Nemesis
Create a Magus of _ for a noncreature spell that doesn't have a magus. For example Magus of the Moon is the creature form of Blood Moon and Magus of the Tabernacle is the creature form of The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale

Since your a low creature count you might consider Magus of the Tabernacle for some added salt. Although it might be counter productive with your high artifact count Kataki, War's Wage can be pretty viscous.

Some kind of Ghostly Prison War Tax or Magus of the Tabernacle would help offset the low creature count and keep a more or less even playing field with your opponents with various forms of mana deprivation. God-Pharaoh's Statue and Feroz's Ban are other cards I thought of after seeing the low creature count and Grand Arbiter Augustin IV . I'm not a great deck builder, but I find mana deprivation to be even more effective than removal at controlling the pace. Looks like a strong deck in general, I really like the spell slinger feel this deck has.
