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.

Faerie Artisans Discussion

I'd highly recommend the talismans (Talisman of Dominance and Talisman of Progress) as great mana rocks. Myr Retriever and Junk Diver are some great artifact creatures to be recurred by either of your commanders and that recur artifacts on their own. Trading Post is a great recursion engine for artifacts, as well as a creature sac outlet. Krark-Clan Ironworks is a great sac outlet for your artifacts, to let you exploit various etb/ltb effects. Thopter Spy Network is a nice way to draw cards, and generates a token every turn. Faerie Artisans is pretty cool, letting you get the etb/ltb effects of opposing creatures, and you can get death triggers too with a sac outlet on the board. Efficient Construction gives you a thopter for every artifact you cast.

As good as Mistbind Clique is, with so few faeries have you had problems casting and championing another faerie?
I haven't tested this but if you want to be mean I think Mistbind + Faerie Impostor + Quickling or any other creature that requires you to return a creature to your hand (Ex Aether Adept) but Quickling is the best since it has flash.
So for 6 mana you can lock out an opponent. During opponents upkeep have Have Mistbind champion the Impostor, then you can flash in Quickling to return the Mistbind returning the Impostor to the battlefield which then returns to Quickling to repeat next uptap phase.
You are also missing some pretty solid Faeries for a Fae Deck: Faerie Harbinger (tutor), Faerie Trickery (counter), Spellstutter Sprite (counter), Glen Elendra Archmage (more counters), Glen Elendra Liege (lord - great with Oona making 3/3s), Scion of Oona (Lord + Shroud), and just a fun one but Faerie Artisans basically it lets you benefit from all your opponents ETB effects sometimes you get a good creature to attack with but mostly it should be the ETB

Looks like a neat take on Ephara! However, there a few cards that stand out to me as out of place. Westvale Abbey Flip can't be played because its back side is black. Counterbalance seems a bit weird with no topdeck manipulation. Knight Exemplar has only 4 other knights to buff. I'm not really a fan of auras in EDH, and even though flashing in Spirit Mantle to save a creature might be cute, I'm not sure if it's good enough to make the cut.
The deck feels a bit lacking in the ramp department. Solemn Simulacrum and Knight of the White Orchid fill this role while also supporting the etb subtheme. Azorius Signet and Coldsteel Heart are some other good mana rocks to consider.
Finally, some other cards that go very well with Ephara. Deputy of Acquittals and Voidmage Husher are some other humans that help you get more etb triggers. Stonecloaker and Whitemane Lion, while not humans, are extremely powerful with Ephara, letting you draw every turn if you have enough mana. Faerie Artisans gives you lots of etb triggers, and also the etb/ltb effects of all the creatures you copy. In addition, you can flicker it to keep whatever token you currently control. Finally, Silumgar Sorcerer is a counterspell that triggers Ephara, and is even a human.
Hope this helps!

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.
