Hi! I would recommend cutting Halimar Depths and didn't say please.

I made a similar deck a while back, and solely because of one card that is the best card in the deck - Delay. Delay in a processors deck is basically a Counterspell that is modern legal and easier to cast in tricolor deck. I recommend the Ashiok, Dream Render for this deck, as it is both graveyard hate and prevents searching the library. Given that every single creature has an ETB effect, Ephemerate is a very good addition to it.
You can check out some ideas on ProcEspers.

A creature spell on the stack isn’t in play and therefore isn’t a legal target for equip abilities. A creature must resolve and be in play in order to be equipped or enchanted with an aura.

The ones modelled after greed, spellbooks, and other ol enchantments and artifacts are fine. However, the issue with phyrexian is exacerbated with these cars - it breaks the color pie in half. There is no phyrexian Counterspell, because you really do not want this effect in other colors.
Praetor's spite is a strictly better thoughtseize, provided it resolves. 3 colorless mana and 4 life for an extra turn IN ANY COLOR is not a good effect. Phyrexian blueprints can cost 1UU, because its effect is pretty weak. While the colorless, half as cheap Quicksilver Amulet is broken as well.
None of these can printed and phyrexian should not part of cards. Sure, it is a nice thematic effect, but just forget using it.
The only way to include phyrexian mana on a card would be in addition to other mana:
Counter target non-creature spell, then you may draw a card. If you do, discard a card.

Now that Phyrexian mana exists, I feel that WotC has not truly used that mechanic to its fullest potential, so I shall make some Phyrexianized versions of existing cards, and I hope that everyone likes them.
Praetor's Disdain Show
Counter target spell.
Praetor's Scorn Show
Destroy target nonland permanent.
Thus far, there has never been a card that uses multiple colors of Phyrexian mana, so I have made such a card, which is modeled after Utter End, but it only destroys a permanent, rather than exiling it, to prevent it from being strictly better than the other card. Alternatively, I could increase the cost to and keep it as an exile effect.
Praetor's Spite Show
Target player reveals their hand; you choose a nonland card from it and that player discards that card.
Praetor's Shield Show
, the next time that a source of your choice would deal damage to you this turn, prevent that damage.
This card is modeled after Righteous Aura, and I was originally planning to have the casting cost be only , but I increased it to prevent it from being too powerful. I am not worried about the activated ability being capable of being used for no mana, because a player will not pay 4 life unless the source of damage that they wish to prevent will deal at least 4 damage.
Phyrexian Replicator Show
If an effect would create one or more tokens under your control, it creates twice that many of those tokens instead.
If an effect would put one or more counters on a permanent you control, it puts twice that many of those counters on that permanent instead.
This card is obviously modeled after Doubling Season, but I increased the cost to prevent it from being strictly better than that card.
Phyrexian Purge Show
Destroy all nonland permanents.
This card is modeled after Planar Cleansing, and I am not worried about its casting cost, because I made it very mana-intensive; a player will pay 8 life to cast it only if they are very desperate.
Phyrexian Grimoire Show
: draw a card.
This card is modeled after both Greed and Book of Rass (which, as a side note, really needs to be reprinted), so its casting cost is between the costs of those two cards. Its controller can draw cards for no mana, but 4 life is a high price for a single card.
Temporal Flux Show
Target player takes an extra turn after this one.
I could not conceive of an impressive name for this card that contained the word "Phyrexian," so I used a name that had not yet been used for a card. I modeled it after Time Warp and Temporal Manipulation, but I increased its cost to prevent it from being strictly better than them.
Gitaxian Tome Show
,: draw a card.
Phrexian Blueprints Show
: draw a card.
This card references Urza's Blueprints, and its overall cost is lower, because I feel that, if that card had been printed today, it would be less expensive due to power creep.
Phrexian Amulet Show
,: you may put a creature card from your hand onto the battlefield.
This card is modeled after Quicksilver amulet.
Those are all the designs that I have conceived at this moment, so I shall post more as I conceive them, but what does everyone think of the cards that I have designed, thus far?

Hey, your deck is missing it's Commander. If Alela is the Commander of this deck then you can make it official by tagging her with CMDR. In the deck editor put the CMDR tag after Alela, Artful Provocateur text.
1x Alela, Artful Provocateur *F* *CMDR*
What this does is it displays the card image of Alela in the deck list making her the official Commander of your deck.
Bident of Thassa is a good repeatable draw source with Faeries. Faeries have flying meaning that more times than not you will do combat damage to your opponents when you attack. For each Faerie who does combat damage to an opponent you draw a card. This can draw you a lot of cards. Consider cutting Festive Funeral for Bident?
Some upgrades within the budget to consider:
- Cloud of Faeries > Moonglove Changeling
- Faerie Conclave > Safe Haven
- Faerie Swarm > Glen Elendra Pranksters
- Faerie Formation > Nightshade Schemers
- Latchkey Faerie > Fencer Clique
- Etchings of the Chosen > Always Watching
- Favorable Winds > Eel Umbra
- Counterspell > Spell Syphon
- Open the Armory > River's Grasp
- Generous Gift > Mortify
- Brainstorm > Cerulean Wisps
- Ponder > Advice from the Fae
- Mask of Memory > Winged Words
- Detention Sphere > Prison Realm
- Chromatic Lantern > Mana Geode
- Exotic Orchard > Rupture Spire
- Caves of Koilos > Vivid Meadow
- Sunken Hollow > Dimir Aqueduct
- Esper Panorama > Evolving Wilds
Good luck with your deck.

Hey, thanks so much for the upvote and the comment!
I'll certainly test it!
That said, at a first glance it seems to me to be a change I'm not so sure about. Mainly cause, although it counters the spell, I get nothing in addition. That's diferent from Dispel where I'm guaranteed to have a two mana counter and maybe activate that synergy with Mystic Sanctuary. Part of what makes Ionize a decent replacement is that I gain virtual card advantage*, something that this version lacks profundly, once it doesn't have acess to draw spells... Wizard's Retort seems like in its best will be a Counterspell (and that's great), in its worst will be an underperformative Dissolve (an that's not great).
Of course empirical experience could reveal otherwise and for that I'll do the tests

I started looking at this problem of finding cards with old art; I think what you should look for old cards not used a lot
A lot of staples have different art printing and counterspell has even more than that maybe this will help on that journey
