Creature — Human Scout
When Cloudblazer enters the battlefield, You gain 2 life and draw two cards.

Not only have I not tried Faerie Artisans , I didn't know it existed until you posted it, haha. Certainly a fun and possibly political card, but I personally prefer having control over what I'm cloning versus relying on what my opponents cast.
I am running a little light for card draw. That said, I have so much recursion & tutor in here that it's usually not a problem if I'm needing to replenish my mit. Mulldrifter is a house here so do I like the idea of having a second option with Cloudblazer . I ran PSZ for a while but ended up swapping her out due to her casting cost + reliance on my board state.

Did you ever try Faerie Artisans to get other players ETB effects when they play their creatures? Maybe not as good as the clones you already run?
What about Frilled Mystic for Mystic Snake #2? It's not fetchable off recruiter but maybe worth a card slot. Not sure how often you actually get into positions where you can keep bouncing a Mystic Snake to counter things that threaten your board state.
Do you ever feel like you need more card draw? Looks like you only have 2-3 cards that draw you cards. Every try or consider Cloudblazer , Prime Speaker Zegana , Rhystic Study etc? I do like your inclusion of Guardian Project in the deck.

Some thoughts: Frilled Mystic , Great Oak Guardian , Mizzium Meddler , Plaxmanta , Mystic Snake , and Selfless Squire all need to reenter the battlefield immediately for maximum effect. You have Deadeye Navigator and Temur Sabertooth only for that, with 0 tutors for either. I suggest either investing in more cloudshift effects, or taking most of the weaker of those out.
I also see Guardian Project as reasonable, but also strongly suggest Soul of the Harvest as in the utility creature deck, a high p/t blocker that also generates card advantage is very worthwhile as an investment.
With Ghostway and Eerie Interlude , Eternal Witness and friends are a very good investment. additionally, with so many low power dudes, Reveillark is amazing, and can help reduce tension for some of the issues with my first point, as reveillark triggers when it leaves, returning the desired dorkos immediately. Also consider Thragtusk , as swagboy is hilarious blink value, and can gain 10-20 life easy in a game, 3/3 blockers aside.
While cultivate and kodama's reach are great, in a blink deck, I strongly recommend Wood elves, even in a budget build it can grab the WG tango and cycling land.
Last point, run more card advantage. Mulldrifter can be evoked, the sac trigger responded to with roon activation for 5 mana draw 4 and keep fish alive. Cloudblazer might also be worthwhile though I never tested it myself.

Sure. The "flicker tribal" is just cards with good etbs who benefit feom flickering like Grave Titan or Cloudblazer Venser, Shaper Savant is a pseudo counter/bounce spell on a body and Glen Elendra is a repeatable negate on a body

Clayton was talking about Stonecloaker, which would be an awesome include in this deck. Interesting to note that it can return itself so you can keep replaying this over and over and exiling cards from graveyards.
Deputy of Acquittals, Quickling, Whitemane Lion, and Restoration Angel all seem like good additions to the deck. I think you'd want to add more creatures with abusable enters the battlefield effects, though. Mulldrifter and Cloudblazer are both decent card draw and would be nice to pick up and use again. Deadeye Navigator would also be amazing with Mulldrifter and Cloudblazer.
If you want cheap cards to cast (also $$ wise) that make a token when they enter the battlefield, Aviation Pioneer and Seller of Songbirds both make 1/1 fliers. There are a lot of creatures that make tokens when they enter the battlefield, but these creatures are the least mana cost, make tokens with evasion, cost pennies, and can come back from Bishop of Rebirth. Sun Titan would probably be rad in this deck. As would Deadeye Navigator.
Cards like Momentary Blink are cool because you can use them in response to a targeted removal spell. Your creature will leave the battlefield and return as a new instance, one that is not being targeted by the removal, fizzling their spell. Deadeye Navigator's effect is similar, BTW, another reason it's so good.
