I don't think you'd need 3 copies of each, since just one does what you need it to do (multiple copies of Mystic Forge is kind of redundant and multiple copies of Semblance Anvil is overkill). I'd try replacing Witching Well since it affects your game plan the least.

Apologize in advance if you've already answered this/considered this.

The previous version of this deck utilized Mystic Forge/Sensei's Divining Top. You cut this since you have to cut Etherium Sculptor to enable the Tidespout Tyrant line.

Have you considered doing the Mystic Forge line with a noncreature cost reducer, like Cloud Key or Semblance Anvil? You could do this while keeping the Tidespout Tyrant line. I realize at 3cmc they are more costly than Etherium Sculptor, but not by that much. And while you risk getting two for oned with Semblance Anvil a cost reduction is powerful (though maybe not necessary for your deck).

Is this too expensive/clunky/slow for cEDH? Thoughts?

I would suggest putting in more lands because 18 is really low, especially if you're playing X spells. I would push it up to 23/24 with Seat of the Synod (since you're playing casually) and Castle Vantress for filtering. You could also try Semblance Anvil to reduce the cost of all your creatures and/or artifacts. Hope this helps.

This might be a bit expensive considering the average CMC of your deck is pretty low, but have you tried Mystic Forge? It can allow you to consistently filter the top of your deck for a little bit of life and effectively extends your hand by 1. It can also pair together nicely with Semblance Anvil (most scarecrows cost 1 =) ). Hope this helps.

Optimator on Giant's Deck

So based on what you have and I have, I would say Sol Ring - Semblance Anvil - Arcane Signet - Talisman of Conviction - Boros Signet - Hedron Archive - Mind Stone - Worn Powerstone - Heraldic Banner - Dowsing Dagger  Flip

That seems good for a first draft. If you feel your deck is inconsistent then add two more pieces of ramp. You may want to add more "big" ramp and replace the smaller stuff too, but even in a big-mana deck like this the 2-CMC stuff just has a better flow sometimes.

I almost forgot: the land Myriad Landscape is great in one- or two-color decks that don't run Green. I have a ton of them.

So let's start with ramp.

Quicksilver Amulet and Belbe's Portal are great and what I call "pseudo-ramp". Definitely worth having but you will still want a full compliment of regular ramp cards. I don't love Cryptic Gateway nearly as much. Even though giants are expensive, you aren't always going to have two out, and tapping them down to bring one out means you can't attack with them unless you have mass vigilance (which is not a bad idea though--I see you have Brave the Sands; a card I love). It's not awful though, but I'd rather have regular ramp. It's better in decks with cheap AND expensive creatures.

I love that you have a Semblance Anvil. Sol Ring is obvious. I would drop Helm of Awakening. It will help your opponents significantly more than you. If you're only casting one big giant a turn then it's the same as a small mana rock.

I would drop Pyretic Ritual as well.

Thank you for seriously checking out my deck MrKillStar! I happy you enjoy my angel themed deck! Ironically the second theme for this deck is actually board-wipes. While white doesn't have good ramp or card draw they have great board-wipes and many of them.

The reason why I don't have many ramp cards or rocks in this deck is actually because of the board-wipes. There's no point in having mana rocks and ramp spells if I blow them up on my own! Back in my UPDATE: 01/06/20 I actually stopped using board-wipes to include artifacts like Cloud Key, Urza's Incubator, Semblance Anvil, Lifeline, Planar Bridge, and cards like Lightning Greaves to protect the more important angels. And of course I add Sol Ring and other mana rocks like that, however even with all this awesome casting cost reduction I still ran into the problem of drawing cards in white. I would effectively dumb my whole hand successfully but then have to top-deck for the rest of the game, which didn't work out most of the time. Which is why I now have my deck the way it is.

Currently my main source of ramp in this deck is through Sword of the Animist, with a couple tutor cards to find it early Open the Armory and Steelshaper's Gift. However, with the sheer amount of board-wipes that target everything and not just creatures, I can easily sit back and wait to draw mana every turn. I have found when playing this deck with my group of friends that they must kill me early because if they don't I'll have board control and to much life-link to deal with, especially because I'll be nuking the board constantly in tell I'm in the best position.

I've definitely considered Endless Horizons but I think I was using Smothering Tithe instead. I definitely won't use Sunscour because I need all the cards I can get.

I couldn't click on your link to show more card draw artifacts but I'd love to get my hands on them.

I love wheels and my friends hate me for it.

I'd recommend more mana reduction permanents, mostly for the wheels. Baral, Chief of Compliance, Cloud Key, Jace's Sanctum, Primal Amulet  Flip, Goblin Electromancer, Semblance Anvil and a newer one Thryx, the Sudden Storm. There's so many options.

Sapphire Medallion and Ruby Medallion I think are better than some of the talismans.

Also, Psychic Corrosion is a fun, dick move card with wheels since it hits each opponent.
