I remember that there used to not be artistry deduction in Bronze, but then I heard talk of adding one being added but didn't know if it had ever happened or was just talk.

There have always been artistry deductions in bronze, same across all Xcel levels. Maybe you are thinking of composition deductions? Xcel does not have composition deductions(ie difficulty/variety of skill choice deductions) like JO.

From the Xcel COP - not level specific:

B. Characteristics of excellent Artistry include:
1. Originality / Creativity of choreography in elements and connections up to 0.10 *
2. Quality of Gymnast’s movement to reflect Personal Style up to 0.10 *
3. Quality of Expression (i.e., projections, focus) up to 0.10 *

* maximum deduction of 0.10 in each category
