You may have Estrid's Invocation enter the battlefield as a copy of any enchantment you control, except it gains "At the beginning of your upkeep, you may exile this enchantment. If you do, return it to the battlefield under its owner's control."

Estrid's Invocation Discussion

Your artifact ramp could be more optimized.
Take out all the Diamonds and put in Signets, they don't come into play tapped and are great for fixing your mana. Lotus Petal could be considered since it plays well with your commander, Fellwar Stone is also great or even Mind Stone. Just don't play mana ramp that comes into play tapped.
I would also try to leave some creatures out for powerfull enchantments/artifacts since your commander is focused on them, if you cast them you'll get a creature for free. I would consider these enchantments/artifacts: Grasp of Fate, Search for Azcanta Flip, Darksteel Mutation, Estrid's Invocation, Mirrormade, Copy Enchantment, Skullclamp, Sword of the Animist, Lightning Greaves.
Alela goes infinite quite easy with cards like Banishing Knack or Retraction Helix combined with a Battered Golem, Mirran Spy or Traxos, Scourge of Kroog and any 0 drop atrifact; Tormod's Crypt, Ornithopter, Everflowing Chalice, Memnite orvSpellbook. Making infinite faeries and infinite casts (Storm). Put an Aetherflux Reservoir next to this combo and BOOM.

Hey Rasaru, this deck seems like a lot of fun. Personally I would build Braids entirely around Paradox Haze (which has one of my favorite flavor texts in magic, next to Goblin Offensive). You can also copy Paradox Haze with the likes of Mirrormade, Estrid's Invocation, Copy Enchantment, and Clever Impersonator. Drift of Phantasms could transmute to find it.
You might like these too: Sunken Hope, Umbilicus, Blood Clock, Faerie Artisans, Agent of Treachery, Diluvian Primordial, Meteor Golem, Deadeye Navigator, Phyrexian Ingester, Scholar of the Ages, Vedalken Dismisser, Panharmonicon

I'd like to recommend a few cards:
- Squeeze barely touches you, but can really put the screws to your opponents.
- Stasis is by far one of the best enchantments in any Estrid deck like this and i'm kind of surprised it's not in this list. Winter Orb is a similar case.
- Estrid's Invocation is both a copy enchantment and a decent draw engine and it should probably find a place in your deck.
- Root Maze is another good way to slow down your opponents.
Also, you have Heliod, Sun-Crowned listed twice here.

Only 4 cards I can think of that I would add but they’re good ones in an enchantment deck.
4 ways to copy some good enchantments such as anointed procession or the sphere of safety type cards.

@ Skullclamped , Hey, glad you like it :)
As the deck stands right now, the primary win condition would be to copy the Illusions of Grandeur multiple times with Copy Enchantment , Estrid's Invocation or Clever Impersonator . The deck also contains enough enchantment-recursion like Hall of Heliod's Generosity , Replenish , etc. to regain the Illusions back from your graveyard. While this is pretty janky, the deck somehow manages to win relatively consistently, as it doesn't look very threatening and most of the time flies under the radar until it's to late >:)
Another way to win that's even more janky might be with Dance of the Manse through combat-damage... never tried that one out yet though :D

Cool deck! You might like these: Psychic Possession , Tomorrow, Azami's Familiar , Uba Mask , Zur's Weirding , Forced Fruition , Teferi's Puzzle Box , Spark Double , Mirrormade , Copy Enchantment , Estrid's Invocation , Toothy, Imaginary Friend , Chasm Skulker , Psychosis Crawler , Temporal Cascade (not entwined, can be used as "pay 7, everyone draws 7"), Swan Song .
I have a deck that profits off of opponents drawing cards and playing stuff if you want to check it out: Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law

Into the Story - Can suck early game and grave hate or shuffling wheels exacerbate this. My version of baral plays lots of time spiral effects. But this does intrigue me
Vex - We can do better
Estrid's Invocation - Why?
Marit Lage's Slumber - Too slow and unimpactful
Bond of Insight - Better recursion, fuels graveyard decks, but is interesting
Mass Manipulation - Too expensive
Plea for Power - I have a love hate relationship with this card. But it's always hurt me more than it's helped.
Murmuring Mystic - Worse talrand is not needed
Elixir of Immortality - No purpose?
Let me know if you want some ideas for stuff to add
