Maybe Cathars' Crusade could be a thing in this deck. I would maybe play Rebuild too in order to replay your stuff, bounce opponents' artifacts. You can cycle it not needed, quite a cool card in my opinion. If it's about tokens, there's a really fun card Storm Herd. Not crazy but really funny. As counterspells I'd play Narset's Reversal and Render Silent. Maybe Perplex which is a bit off topic.Feel like Detention Sphere instead of Darksteel Mutation too.

Hi! It looks like a pretty interesting list. I have a couple of straight suggestions, and some comments/questions.
The first comment is that I see that this deck is pretty much a cEDH deck, it looks pretty consistent and pretty fast when it gets going. In that regard, I don't like Leave / Chance. If it's there for the Chance part, I would recommend more like Ponder, Preordain and Brainstorm. I mean, I recommend those three cards regardless! They're really efficient. On the other hand, if the Leave part is relevant, there's always Paradoxical Outcome which is bonkers good! Or even Rebuild which also returns opponents' stuff.
Another card I don't like is Ugin, the Ineffable. I mean, it's a really good card, but also very expensive. As I understand, it's there to discount artifacts, in that sense there's Cloud Key and Semblance Anvil which also do that and they're not creatures. Or even Helm of Awakening (this one reduces all costs, but to everyone). Although, artifact combo doesn't really look like the main strategy, in which sense I would just cut Ugin, and add other stuff. Most of your artifacts are very cheap anyway.
Now, one of the comments/questions I have is the following. The main Win-Con is Aetherflux Reservoir, isn't it? It's a really good win-con but still, some other win-cons are always good. In order to make the deck more resilient I would add additional finishers, like Walking Ballista when you have infinite mana, or maybe even a Jace, Wielder of Mysteries with so many Wheel effects! Oh! Another cool line is Wheel of Fortune and Lion's Eye Diamond with Underworld Breach! You can draw your whole deck, cast Jace and win on the spot! You can also switch the Wheel with Brain Freeze! :D
In general I like the deck! It seems really cool! :D I'll keep an eye on it!

I would maybe up lands to 35, but that's just me since it is the lowest I'm normally comfortable with going for lands.
Using cards like Rebuild and Retract with a lot of mana artifacts like Welding Jar , Paradise Mantle , Zuran Orb , Ornithopter , etc. will make a pretty insane near storm levels of card draw combo to just go digging through your entire deck. Other low or cmc artifacts can be used as well like Alchemist's Vial and other 'egg' cards.

Hey, Tectonic Reformation which is included in the precon gives you a repeatable source of low mana cost cycling using lands. This is wanted to repeatedly trigger Gavi, Slide, Drift and Haven. Idyllic Tutor is worth including because it can tutor for one of Reformation, Slide, Drift or Haven and you can recur it with Archaeomancer to tutor again.
There's a lack of ramp here and ramp is a fundamental part of all Commander decks. You want to make room in your deck for ramp since ramp also is color fixing. In the precon are Sol Ring/Arcane Signet these are good rocks for ramp, add them to your deck. There's also three Signets in the precon I suggest adding those rocks too.
Chromatic Lantern is not included in the precon, but it's a good mana rock with Reformation because then you can tap any land to make red mana to cycle a land with Reformation. Raugrin Crystal is the new Jeskai mana rock that has cycling.
Smothering Tithe is a fantastic card for repeatable ramp in multiplayer Commander since your opponents, much more than not, are not going to pay the two mana to deny you a treasure when they draw therefore each time around the table you're going to make treasures and these treasures can be saced to make any color of mana. Smothering is also good with Reformation because treasures can make red mana.
Some good budget cards with cycling to consider adding:
- Nimble Obstructionist
- Valiant Rescuer
- Cast Out
- Ominous Seas
- Reconnaissance Mission
- Countervailing Winds
I offer more advice including what cards to consider cutting. Good luck with your deck.

This deck is obviously over $50 these days, but I still consider it budget. After this most recent update (adding in Bounty of the Luxa, Rebuild, and Return to Nature to replace Colossal Majesty, Naturalize and a basic island), I think the deck is pretty much finished. I'm pretty proud of what I've been able to do with it.

Hey, nice start and budget version of Alela.
Bident of Thassa is a very good budget card with lots of flying tokens. Bident with attacking Faeries can get you far ahead in a game with card draw and gives you resiliency to come back from board wipes. Diabolic Tutor is a budget tutor that can tutor for Bident. Oona's Blackguard is a two drop Faerie who has a good combat damage ability since there's many other Rogue Faeries in your deck. Rootborn Defenses protects all your creatures from a board wipe that destroys and you get free Faerie token.
For voltron Cranial Plating is a reason to go more artifacts than enchantments with Alela. Plating can be a busted card for voltron because you can keep equipping it to your Faeries. Seat of the Synod, Vault of Whispers and Darksteel Citadel are budget artifact lands that count for Plating. Two drop mana rocks are good with Alela such as Orzhov Signet, Azorius Signet, Dimir Signet, Mind Stone, Prismatic Lens, etc. Two drop mana rocks help to cast Alela turn three and the faster you can get Alela onto the battlefield the better your Faerie army will be. Paradoxical Outcome and Rebuild are budget mass bounce effects for artifacts and Outcome includes enchantments as well as draws you a card for each permanent you bounce. Bounce artifacts and cast them again to create more tokens.
Good luck with your deck.
