arcane_trouper, I personally believe that, for almost every deck, card draw and ramp are the two categories that the deck will be better if it can do both consistently. With that framework in mind, it should be easier to see why these two categories are trying to be inherently protected from board wipes. However, we do see eye-to-eye in that temporary card draw is better than temporary ramp, so I've made an exception for creatures, but with a higher bar. Would you agree that it's also a good idea to make the standard for creatures higher than for noncreatures, since they are inherently more likely to get removed from a board wipe?
You're absolutely right on Ancestral Recall being much better than Dark Ritual, but Ancestral Recall wouldn't go on this list, it would go on MagicalHacker - List of All Burst Card Draw.
XaiLo, thank you for your suggestions, as it made me realize I forgot to add a parameter excluding cards that also give card draw to your opponents as well. This is why Heartwood Storyteller, Mikokoro, Center of the Sea, and in a way Geier Reach Sanitarium wouldn't be good for the list. In reality, GRS is more like Bazaar of Baghdad that the problem is that they don't give you the type of card draw that this list is aiming for, which is card advantage card draw.
The last suggestion is Magus of the Library, which I used to try to add to a ton of my decks until I realized it only gives you card draw in the situations where you have a full hand (which is when card draw isn't as important for you to have). In that way, it only gives you card draw if you don't need card draw as much.

List is looking good. It's interesting to see you come to the same conclusion around Protean Hulk as I did, though from a different angle. Personally I never ran Angelic Renewal as it only really combos with Sun Titan. I personally think that Gift of Immortality is better. Yes, it has the most value on Saffi but it also forms an infintie loop with both Sun Titan and Boonweaver Giant (for one extra mana). I used to pair it with Eidolon of Blossoms as a card draw engine, and while I have since cut both cards, i was a very good engine. You can also pair it with Heart Warden if you wanted to run that.
It will be interesting to see how you go with Fecundity. I ran it a while ago however found that Iwas giving my opponents too many cards from it. Granted, ther were a lot of graveyard leveraging decks, but I just didn't like to not be in control of the card draw. That's I think why I ultimately moved to stuff like Mikokoro, Center of the Sea and Selvala, Heart of the Wilds. While it is a guaranteed draw for my opponents, I say when it happens. But give it a go - I look forward to hearing your thoughts on it post testing.
A couple of other things I have noticed for the list:
If you're going to run Walking Ballista, have you thought about adding Heliod, Sun-Crowned? Honestly though, my thoughts would be to cut Ballista for Stoneforge Mystic. The reasoning for this is that Stoneforge can get Skullclamp which can then let you assemble your other win condition (let's face it, Ballista is primarily there for the infinite mana case). And with the new rules change (which I'm not happy about but makes Saffi better), you can use Skullclamp + Saffi as a card draw engine while still putting her in the command zone so that you can rinse and repeat.
As for the Saffi discord, I would be happy to be a part of it, though I'm not the most active person on discord.

Cool budget list! Here's some inspiration you could play: To improve your ramp you should play Wayfarer's Bauble!, Terrain Generator, Mind Stone!, Worn Powerstone! and/or Dark Ritual/Mana Geyser/Seething Song. Good carddraw: Phyrexian Arena!, Sign in Blood!, Light Up the Stage, Ob Nixilis Reignited, Read the Bones/Syphon Mind! And another totally underated card is Mayhem Devil with fetch lands like Bloodstained Mire or Evolving Wilds/Terramorphic Expanse/Grixis Panorama. Other cool cards: Geier Reach Sanitarium, Mikokoro, Center of the Sea, Pyroblast, Syr Konrad, the Grim! & Rakdos Charm! Non Budget options: Chandra, Torch of Defiance, Deadly Rollick, Deflecting Swat, Dockside Extortionist, Kolaghan's Command, Fire Covenant, Fiery Confluence, Toxic Deluge & Blasphemous Act

Bonders' Enclave is also a new land coming out in Ikoria that could be useful for card draw.
