I had quite a long breakdown typed up but the site ate it. In hindsight, this should be more comprehenisble.
Long story short, Monocolour will be cheapest and most stable. I'll steer you away from control, as in control you tend to see a lot of the deck, which means that any 'weak link' cards show up and lose you games, combined with control's bad place in the meta its not super efficient.
Budget Plow Under/Acidic Slime/Brutalizer Exarch is great if you have access to ramp and don't mind your opponnents hating you, Teir 1 Landloss' reliance on Blood Moon does mean you'll need a heavy variant. U fearie tempo is playable- Quickling and Spellstutter Sprite with Familiar's Ruse and cheaper etb, as well as some shenanigans with Pestermite/Deceiver Exarch. The key cards that make full faeries good and controlly, Cryptic Command and Vendilion Clique are pricy as all hell though, meaning your deck will have to fit into a different neiche, likely tempo. I'll reccomend mono red 'just spam hasty creatures' for aggro, or Hunted Horror(for leyline) with a mono black list for midrange. Duress covers for a lot of gaps. Boggles is tricky as the value is spread across a lot of cards. A similar setup running heroic triggers and fragile but strong/growing creatures with Vines of Vastwood/Blossoming Defense/Heroic Intervention will likely be your best bet. Ajani's Pridemate/Voracious Wurm/It That Rides as One Flip type cards. It will be slower as you'll need the mana for protection, so bear that in mind.
Silhana Ledgewalker/Gladecover Scout/Slippery Bogle/Invisible Stalker is pretty cheap, the trick is making them pump out the damage without the dumb enchantments or the protection of totem armour. You might manage that with a dumb interaction like Dictate of the Twin Gods, or just counterspells and Banshee's Blade type threat growing.
I enjoy building decks more than I enjoy playing, honestly, so If you let me know what sort of deck you want to emulate, I'll see what I can dredge up to support it. If you can figure out 3-4 cards you want to play every game, thats most of the deck already there.

Play Cultivator of Blades as another Wild Beastmaster that triggers Ezuri three times making servos. Try Spawnwrite as a great trampler that can trigger Ezuri exponentially with his copies of copies. My Ezuri, CoP deck, is very quick and I run a "Commander Protection Package" with more Plaxmanta-like creatures creatures such as Quickling and Void Grafter, as well as morph creatures like Stratus Dancer and Willbender and shroud granters like Hisoka's Guard and Sylvan Safekeeper and Heroic Intervention, which is a great spell that counters a board wipe for just you. My curve is very low and if I can get Ezuri in play and untap, the whole table is in trouble unless they work together to kill me. Oh, try Foundry of the Consuls or Spawning Bed instead of Faerie Conclave to get big triggers on Ezuri and more creatures to grow with counters (I play both). Oh, if you can't get a Doubling Season try Inexorable Tide in it's place. If you play enough "proliferate," add Skyship Plunderer and the depletion lands from Marcadian Masques Hickory Woodlot and Saprazzan Skerry. Anyway, good luck. Swell the Host is one of the better pre-constructs to enhance. It can be enhanced pretty cheaply.

Correction - Timely Hordemate does indeed have targets, but it's very few:
Still probably worth culling for something like Odric, Lunarch Marshal

Thanks for the input!
I had been thinking about adding back another Pestermite but I was thinking of dropping a Quickling for it instead. Quicklings are good when there are creatures to bounce but are unplayable when my board is empty.
I've been happy with 3 but maybe 2 Favorable Winds is fine. I definitely don't want to cut more than that. A problem with this deck is that there isn't enough power in the 1/1s to close out a game fast. Sure, I can play the controlling game but its just a matter of time before there just aren't enough counterspells to hold an opponent's (often much larger) threats back.
The Ninja of the Deep Hours suggestion seems to be a common one. It just seems to me that it's only good enough for 1 sneaky draw and afterwards its pretty easy to block/kill. Maybe that's just enough reason to add it in. I've never played with it so I'm just going off pure speculation (shame on me). Also I'm a bit of a purist when it comes to making my Tribal decks so I've tried to keep it all Faeries so far. I guess if lots of people have success with it then it may be time for me to test it out :)
Where would you make a cut for some Ninjas? I hesitate to take anything out because I've been pretty happy with the overall composition. Yes, I've been told that Zephyr Sprites aren't great but I like to have them for a Turn 1 play (if I don't have Miscreant) with the option to hold up Spellstutter Sprite to catch a 2-mana spell instead of 1-mana one on Turn 2. Or drop a Turn 2 Quickling for a bit more early damage or blocking if necessary. It can even just be an extra Faerie to Champion or bounce so we can avoid an opponent's attempt to 2-for-1 me on resolving a Mistbind Clique or Quickling later in the game. Even so, they appear to be the most obvious place to begin making cuts

ghoul_Legion thanks for your tips. I did the alterations that you suggested. So I changed Tragic Slip for Fatal Push. It's more expensive but it worths it. Maybe use 2x Quickling to help on Fatal Push's effect?

I am currently running Rashmi, and as you have mentioned, cascade isn't very good in this deck. So I am looking for another cantrip creature. As of right now Masked Admirers, Nimble Innovator, and Shaman of Spring stand out. On other hand I could just add another bounce creature like Quickling

Quickling was a recent one i just thought it was so detailed and crisp compared to some other cards, not a fan of the kaladesh and aer artworks starting to look to cartoony
