Maybe there's something i'm not seeing with these cards, but if you want to use devotion to gain mana, then why not Nyx Lotus ?

What about using Verge Rangers to keep up in land ramp/information. Nyx Lotus could also fix some mana issues. Starnheim Aspirant was already mentioned which i also would strongly recommend to you... And cut some high-cmc creatures.
But: upvote for the name

Thanks so much for the comment. I really appreciate it. And thanks for the advice. I actually just just ordered a foil ancient tomb and force of will for the deck, as well as the fairies secret lair for the two cards in here that show up in my deck. It's a long expensive process, but I am enjoying it. I actually am debating swapping out the islands for the old school versions foiled, because I just love that shooting star xD.
Those are some good advice. I have Arcane Signet in like, almost every single deck of mine and had been considering trying to fit it into this one again. I am loathe to remove the Nyx Lotus though for it, as it has done a lot of work almost every game, but perhaps I can try and find another card to remove for it, as you are totally right about how good the signet is.
I think you may be 100% right on the archivist, I liked it because it was just flat out draw, like Arcanis the Omnipotent just being able to drop earlier. But the cryptologist's looting does only make him cost a total of 3 mana instead of 4, doable by second turn, etc. SO yah I think I may have to order one of those today then, I think that is a good change.
And yah for the last one... I haven't even drawn Beguiler of Wills before drawing into a win con in the last 10+ games I have played, or been able to play her for her mana. So I think that is another good swap idea, I do like the charlatan's ability quite a bit, but worry I don't have the most copyable spells? But I think I am all for swapping out the Beguiler for something for sure.
Thanks a bunch, I really appreciate the comment and the support!

Love this deck! Beautiful blinging. Actually, apropos of blinging: foil Ancient Tomb is never going to be cheaper, it's only like $10 (US) more than a regular one atm.
Stroke of Genius is very handy for drawing a million cards when you've been holding up mana for other plans that fall through, or for countermagic without relevant targets. Would consider.
Again, love the deck. Keep it up and good luck continuing to foil it ;3

Hey, well done so far on a budget.
An area to consider improving is ramp, especially two drop ramp.
- Arcane Signet : staple of multicolor decks in Commander.
- Boros Signet
- Talisman of Conviction
- Knight of the White Orchid
- Keeper of the Accord
- Starnheim Aspirant
- Mind Stone
- Thought Vessel
- Verge Rangers
- Cartographer's Hawk
- Nyx Lotus
- Worn Powerstone
Keeper and Rangers have nice repeatable effects that can help for card advantage for white. Keeper in my opinion is a $5 staple of white. The four drop spot on the mana curve has lots of good cards with Gisela thus more two drop ramp helps to cast these cards.
There's a disconnect between the low amount of lands to low amount of ramp to the high avg CMC of your deck. A 4.0 avg is high for a nongreen deck. With 4.0+ avg then you want to account for this with more lands and ramp to be able to cast cards. Consider more lands? 32 is low, consider 36?
- Command Tower : staple of multicolor decks.
- Battlefield Forge
- War Room
- Needleverge Pathway Flip
- Myriad Landscape
- Alpine Meadow : cards that can search for a Plains can search for Meadow.
Cards to consider cutting are 5 CMC or higher. Your goal is to cast Gisela and to help to do this it's best to use the early/mid game to ramp. Gisela is the high CMC card you want to cast more than others therefore having a lot of other high CMC cards is not helping to cast Gisela. There are some exceptions to keep such as Heartless Hidetsugu , Sun Titan , Aurelia, the Warleader , Elspeth, Sun's Champion , Assemble the Legion , Staff of Nin , Austere Command , but all the others could be cut to for more lands/ramp.
Good luck with your deck.

I would love to see an updated version of this deck. Some recent cards I have personally found to be amazing are: Liliana, Dreadhorde General , Undead Augur , Dreadhorde Invasion , Murderous Rider , Bolas's Citadel and Nyx Lotus .

Before I suggest anything more, what type of power level are you looking at making this deck? Do you want it to be just casual, some kind of mid tier, or are you looking to make this closer to cEDH?
