Creature — Faerie Artificer
Whenever a nontoken creature enters the battlefield under an opponent's control, create a token that's a copy of that creature except it's an artifact in addition to its other types. Then exile all other tokens created with Faerie Artisans.

Throwing in Faerie Artisans for the extreme utility of copying all etb effects from my opponents.
Abuse with Cloudstone Curio to bounce FA in response to the token entering, causing the token to be permanent even if I replay FA.
Panharmonicon still doubles token generation, which gives me double etb to my opponents' one instance
I'm super excited about this card because frankly I've never seen it before and its refreshing as hell

So I won't presume you wouldn't need to change your build to incorporate these, but I'm just going to put out there that Seance, Back from the Brink, Soul Separator, Mimic Vat, Soul Foundry, Faerie Artisans, God-Pharaoh's Gift, and Dance of Many are all cards you could really abuse.
Also I totally want to build a deck with all of those cards now!

You really should be playing Faerie Artisans. It would be an all-star in this deck, especially if you have ways to bounce it to your hand so you can keep some of the tokens forever.

You may want to consider Faerie Artisans. I've had good results with her in my Yasova deck, it can give a continuous stream to tokens for sacrifice effects.

I used to run a Ephara deck, recently changed it to a Brago deck for a change of pace. Faerie Artisans can get you more Ephara triggers and the copy ability can be fun. Mistmeadow Witch is a great way to get more flickers. Nevermaker is a great source of removal that basically steals a draw from your opponent. Stonehorn Dignitary is also great for stalling.
If you're looking for win cons, in my old Ephara deck, I often found it was easy to win with an indestructible 6/5 Commander with commander damage. Just slip in a Rogue's Passage. I also threw in an Inquisitor's Flail and Whirler Rogue, but the Rogue's Passage could easily replace one of your basic lands, Darksteel Citadel, or Faerie Conclave.
It's not budget, but Venser, the Sojourner is one of the best planeswalkers for EDH around and is perfect for a flicker deck. He's also another source for making Ephara unblockable.
Hope this helps.

I don't really care for Back to Basics here. With an active Braid its just not that powerful. Or am I wrong? I haven't played against it much.

I would say that it's definitely worth it to run Cyclonic Rift since it's in your colors. It's a powerful card in EDH and if you're using it, chances are you have bigger problems than taking 6 dmg from Ruric Thar, the Unbowed.
Stingscourger is a good way to get color-shifted effects to make your deck less blue-heavy if you need. (I would just not pay it's echo)
Cytoplast Manipulator is just evil against that deck..
in fact, you may consider just running some creature steal or copy so you profit off of your opponents' creatures!
things like Faerie Artisans, Gilded Drake, Siren of the Fanged Coast, Sower of Temptation, Beguiler of Wills, Callous Oppressor, Charisma, Empress Galina, Frenzied Fugue, Illusory Gains, Roil Elemental, Rootwater Matriarch, Seasinger, Tolarian Entrancer, and Willbreaker are some great removal! Why kill artaxa or any creature really if you can just take it and make them use their removal on it if they want it back??

Thanks Charlito! I'll look into Battlegrace Angel! I actually ran Bonehoard, and removed it. I played a game where I really needed a creature, and he'd have been a 0/0. I'm actually going to add a Faerie Artisans. I'm pretty sure I'm taking out Mirror Mockery and Followed Footsteps
