Sword of Body and Mind
Artifact — Equipment
Equipped creature gets +2/+2 and has protection from green and from blue. ((Remember the acronym debt.) This creature can't be damaged, enchanted, equipped, blocked or targeted by anything green or blue. Anything green or blue attached to this creature immediately falls off.)
Whenever equipped creature deals combat damage to a player, you create a 2/2 green Wolf creature token and that player mills 10 cards. (They put the top ten cards of their library into their graveyard.)

Thank you very much your feedback and suggestions.
I really plan to cut out Breeding Pit and Aphemia, the Cacophony , I just feel I need more token factories and those are my only possibilities right now. Ophiomancer and Bloodline Keeper Flip are brilliant cards for my deck, unfortunately I don't have money for them right now.
Ghoulcaller Gisa is a good call, but I really won't have big power creatures, I could sacrifice only 0-1-2 power creatures, and for 5 mana it's too much from a creature without ETB effects.
I don't want Glaring Spotlight and Daring Fiendbonder in my deck, since these cards are for attack support. I don't feel like attack at all with this deck. Probably all my creatures will defend my health and my PW's and they will be sacrificed before the summoning sickness wears off.

For a test deck you already seem to have a lot right. In terms of improvements you can make, I would definitely cut a few cards. Breeding Pit and Aphemia, the Cacophony are both extremely small impact token creators that take a long time to get considerable value, specifically aphemia who does nothing when faced with graveyard hate and likely won't have many enchantments to target in the first place. I would replace these with Ophiomancer , Ghoulcaller Gisa , and maybe Bloodline Keeper Flip. I would also remove Sword of Body and Mind in favor of better protection at a lower cost, since its attack triggers are mediocre at best. I would recommend adding a few equipment pieces that give hexproof and indestructible, so that ayara can stick around during boardwipes and drain lots of life. Finally, two last cards I would attempt to make room for are Glaring Spotlight and Daring Fiendbonder .

Have you adapted these decks to modern standard by chance or have suggestions? Especially DEPTHS... , DRAGONS, & LEGENDS...? and why Sword of Body and Mind in LEGENDS... ?

I'm toying with a similar build right now. Instead of Mesmeric Orb I'm going with Altar of the Brood for similar effect. I'm also including the Myr package including Myr Galvanizer and Myr Turbine to assemble the package for infinite mana to power the Staff of Domination . I also like the idea of Mana Vault to accelerate to Osgir and then sacrifice and clone it to net 5 mana on a later turn. I feel it's also not a terrible idea to include your favorite "Swords of...". I'm going with Sword of Truth and Justice and Sword of Body and Mind . They're typically lackluster but doubling down on those combat damage triggers sounds spicy.

Some more points of clarification, because you do control it even while it's attached to a creature your opponent controls, if you have an effect that counts your artifacts (like Welding Sparks ) it sees the equipment.
If you're asking whether you get it back immediately to trigger it's ETB and equip it for free, it never leaves the battlefield, so it never comes back and triggers, you'll need to pay to equip it.
For some equipment, they have abilities that care about the controller of the equipment, not the controller of the creature. This is for simplicity since those should be the same person, but it can create interesting situations with a stolen creature. For instance, if you're Armix, Filigree Thrasher was equipped with Sword of Body and Mind instead, when it hit's you you'll mill 10 (as you were the one who was hit) and create a 2/2 green wolf token (as you control the sword). If it was equipped with Argentum Armor , you'd destroy target permanent when it attacks, you could even destroy Armix to keep it from hitting you!
