Panharmonicon would be bonkers in here.
Soul of New Phyrexia plays well with most of your guys being big and combos nicely with Boompile for a one-sided board wipe.
Eldritch Evolution could pair well mid/late game on a mana-dork to snag Reclamation Sage, etc. for a nice toolbox effect.

Fun! Since you don't do much early game, might I suggest Rampant Growth to get those lands into play earlier? Fyndhorn Elves isn't really modern legal, so why not Llanowar Elves? And, judging by how this already costs 300 dollars, money is not a problem, so I'd say Birds of Paradise is better than Druid of the Cowl. And Khalni Hydra is a great hydra you can play early on with all those mana dorks in play - it would also let you play around with devotion and use things like Karametra's Acolyte.

I run a similar voltron deck with Sigarda, Host of Herons at the helm. I started with a similar mindset to yourself in that I thought "big payoff" ramp like Cultivate and Kodama's Reach were the only way to go but in truth you want faster cards like Carpet of Flowers, Birds of Paradise,Devoted Druid, as well as the fast mana artifacts (I.e. Mana Crypt, Sol Ring, etc). Essentially if your goal is to have Uril out by turn three, you're going to need immaculate mana and ramp that costs < 3 cmc.
I 100% agree with cklise. I use the enchantress engine to maintain card advantage and can confirm that it works wonders for the deck.
Next, cut the group hug cards. Voltron should never be looking to make allies at the table. More people means more chances to lose your general to a board wipe or Arcane Lighthouse.
Your curve is ~2.5 with your highest cmc card being 6. You do not need 41 lands!
Another common mistake I see with decks that are trying to go faster in an this style deck is the inclusion of Serra's Sanctum. A majority of your permanents are aura's. Sanctum does nothing to help get Uril out and is most of the time going to produce no mana before you have him on board. Sure it's great late game, but to get a faster start early mana production is crucial. Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx will work better if you're just looking to do things like cast Three Dreams and play all the aura's you fetch during later turns.
Lastly, design the deck such that your enchantments cater to the way you win - getting to 11 power + double strike or Ancestral Mask with a plethora of enchantments. In Uril's case you are most likely going to need some evasion as well.
I could essentially sit here all day and spout all the things I've learned from playing and improving a voltron enchantress deck for the past 6 months, but this is your this is your deck to design not mine.
Nevertheless, if you have the time or will take a look at my Sigarda list. I'm not saying my deck is perfect, but hopefully it will reinforce what myself as well as others in the comments are suggesting.

if you wanna go for more T1 plays then you should consider more 1mana creatures.
more Student of Warfare
Birds of Paradise
Gravecrawler / Bloodsoaked Champion / Dread Wanderer
to name a few.
that is the aggro-ish midrange way to go.If you are interested in full control yeah Duress effects ARE the way to go for 1.
Just Consider this: you do have a generally strong finisher(Knight of the Reliquary) but it is a "finisher" either focus on completely stop their actions before that or trade creatures with them that you can summon back.
either Duress their Rest in Peace from hand or go so much aggro that they regret even bringing them to the game.
For me Cryptbreaker + Gravecrawler is the way to punish my opponent when they mullied to 5 to play Rest in Peace agaisnt me.
(of course i always play 4x Ratchet Bomb vs Grave Hate but still i punish them).
Finally at least keep 1 Crib Swap in sb for those Goyf's / Death's Shadows.
Hope i helped.

In order to make the most of garruk, a small change:
+3 Arbor Elf
Much more stable kind of ramp - survives pyroclasm a bit better.

Well the thing is I hardly cast any red mana in this deck. The dual reds are just there just in case i would need to summon Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker.
And the plan is usually to fetch some dual with reds on it. Usually Stomping Ground to cast my mana dorks.
However,most of the time, I would just tutor it with chord of calling through tapping some creature + mana.
However, If i opt for Flickerwisp, I would rather go for the saheeli combo.

@ODDIOBLENDER, not to sound rude or anything, but Wrath of God and Damnation explicitly say creatures can't be regenerated, so I don't think Loxodon Hierarch would be very helpful against those specific board wipes.
@GeminiSpartanX, thanks for all the advice. I do already have a playset of Birds of Paradise in the mainboard already. With the more creature centric play style you're suggesting, would leaving the Inquisition of Kozilek playset in the sideboard be reasonable? And I know now is probably the cheapest enemy fetches will be for a very long time, but I am definitely not in the financial situation to be buying a playset of any of them.
