I think you get the most use out of Arcane Destruction if you figure out a way to reduce the cooldown as fast as possible - Evocation and Critical Mass, obviously. For CM procs you can then use WW or, if you want to avoid APoC gear, Shock Pulse with Living Lightning.
The latter actually works really nice, as Jaetch pointed out here, even for MP10: http://www.diablofan...-act-3-inferno/
But I can see that you build is totally different. It would be easier to read if you would include a link to a Diablo skill calculator, though. Anyways - interesting build!

You say you hate CM builds, so no idea what your third passive is, but if its not CM, you are not maximizing time in archon, especallyif your using arcane destruction instead of pure power.
That leaves using Fireblts, a pretty inferior spell, along with nova and timewarp for kills outside of Archon, But without CM, you are not getting Nova up enough (especially if you are not using cold snap) for it to be really worth it.
So your build basically consists of using a very weak signature spell with very low proc coefficients while you wait for archon.
The only benefit you gain is a 1600% blast when you pop it; which you can easily do with any archon build out there.
If your sick of the typical WW build, try this:
It uses CM with an extremely high proc coefficient spell (LL) to greatly reduce Archon downtime.
Diamond Skin can be replaced with teleport-frcture if that suits you better.
It's basically a much better way to accomplish what your build try to do. Maxxing damage out of archon (using destrction which you say you enjoy) without a WW/EB/FN generic build but also increases up time of archon by a lot. I also threw in Time Warp Bubble for you.
This keeps all the fun stuff of your spec in while adding survivability, archon uptime, and DPS outside Archon.

as much as i can tell he just aims to get as much dmg as possible from the 1600% explosion using arcane destrucion.
Firebolts apply the 3sec conflag proc and nova is just there for applying 35% (20 form CB + 15 from BC) bonus dmg (while time warp adds 20% anyway). This means that when he uses archon the 1600% dmg blast is improved by 65% total-dmg (35+10+20). Now just imagine how big that figure would be if that is a crit.
I gotta admit that this looks very fun but am realy doubting,that this is anywere near effective when it comes to farming.
But ever since (correct me if i am wrong) this appears to be a fun-build i think thats perfectly fine.
Have u ever tested, if sparkflint alone can proc Conflagration?
because if it does, than u can drop (the more or less useless) firebolts and take something like LL in combination with CM (as ur third passive) to minimize the downtime of ur archon.

On topic now -
I liked your build and video but it's only for the fun of high numbers :-)
I can't imagine myself killing packs of 30+ trash mobs with a spell that can only hit 3 targets per cast.
That thought just gave me a headache.
