hello, I'm new to this site and topic, so i apologize in advance if this question has already been asked.

i know some of the basic points of deism (the 'clockmaker' view of god, the no-revelation/reasoning aspect) but i was wondering, what are some of the more abstract/in-depth concepts of deism?

Deism has no tenets, no dogma. There is nothing to memorize, no hymns, no prayer necessary. Wikipedia is not necessarily a good source for all subjects, but the Deism page there is not bad.

There are many flavors of Deism: Classical, Modern, Christian, Panendeism, and the list goes on.

I lean towards the constructive, positive form of Deism. The critical type of Deism is probably more common. I would suggest sampling http://deism.com and http://deistalliance.org and see which is more to your liking. These sources lead to dozens of other sources.

The Temple of Reason is not a member of the Deist Alliance.
