This is better than Pyromancer since like Monastery Mentor this triggers on all non-creatures. On top of time vault, sensei's top, and any other shenanigans this can do with artifacts, this also can potentially give any of your creatures haste by turning a Mox into a copy of that creature.
The -2 absolutely has powerful implications including timevault and blightsteel haste, I think this is a given. The real question is if you are bothering to use these abilities at all in your list or if you would rather just use her as a token generation bot that needs to be dealt 5 damage to get off the table.
She is very different than pyromancer in my eyes because she wants to run 5 moxen, where a lot of pyro lists only run on-color options, and may require a different list all together instead of being a supplemental pyro plan. The fact that the dorks she makes are artifacts also makes cards like thoughtcast or even durdlely broodstar sillyness look a lot more attractive.
There is a very large part of my heart reserved for someone who makes a deck where this feeds Atog/Fling.
