~My friend plays would elves, and I was just wondering if Vaul's Unmaking effected to sprites that his Branchwraiths take, or if those sprites are not counted as being magic items.
No it doesn't affect Sprites as these don't count as magic items.

Indeed, only things that are listed on the Magic Items list for that army would be able to be "unmade."
