In I play a Dragonlord Silumgar/Contamination deck. There's no need to go that route, but overall DlS is a powerful Commander that doesn't see much play due to his 6cmc. He'd check off two of your boxes for colors and being overlooked.

I will second Thrasios, Triton Hero as being amazing on his own. Nothing but value.

Dragonlord Silumgar and Taigam, Sidisi's Hand are both commanders that go well in a deck without building around them, maybe you'd like to try them

You certainly could do that with Oona. So the only thing I feel like you are sure of is you want UB which is a very fun color combination. Some wincons for this color combo are mill, aggro, control and voltron.

Mill is pretty straight forward. Oona is great for this. Normally this is considered to be a weak strategy in commander and people are not wrong in that assertion but it can be downright devastating against non-graveyard decks.

Aggro is a bit weird in commander since you need 40 damage to multiple opponents asap. It isn't easy but UB has a ton of unblockable. The result here is that people need to use all their board wipes and spot removal on dumb things like Inkfathom Infiltrator.

Control is what you already have going here. Again I'm not a fan of the guy but Dralnu works for this. I would definitely contact someone that uses him on this website if you want to use him. Other good control commanders are Circu, Dimir Lobotomist, Taigam, Sidisi's Hand, or Dragonlord Silumgar.

Voltron really depends on the commander. Lazav, Dimir Mastermind, Wrexial, the Risen Deep, Grimgrin, Corpse-Born, and Mirko Vosk, Mind Drinker can all work really well for this. This tends to be a weaker strategy.

But my #1 suggestion is just to look at the different legends here https://edhrec.com/commanders/ub and pick the one you like the look and feel of. Most important in commander is that you have fun playing the deck which means enjoying the look of it and enjoying how it plays.

I have a real newb question, as i'm perhaps far too used to running creature-heavy decks... how does a deck like this survive with no real battlefield? i'm putting a Jeleva deck together myself, but finding it hard to comprehend not putting a few bodies in like Dragonlord Silumgar, Arcanis the Omnipotent, and Sire of Stagnation. My meta is pretty friendly, but aggressive, especially now with dinosaurs running around. I feel scared without even a Propaganda to hold them back. My budget doesn't even hold a candle to that of this deck, I'm just trying to find my way. Can anyone point me in a direction, please?

I'm curious as to why you chose Silumgar, the Drifting Death as your commander. Yes, it's a great card, but for the most part you won't have enough dragons to really make it worth him being your commander. If you like Silumgar, I'd recommend switching to Dragonlord Silumgar. He just works better with your deck theme in my mind.

Also, I find that Doom Blade and Go for the Throat are black EDH staples.

You need to upgrade a lot :)

Dragon deck is a slow deck.

You need to handle early game threat. Add more removal/mass removal. Preferably permanent removal than specific type removal. You are in 5 color deck, have all access the best permanent removal such as Anguished Unmaking Utter End Vindicate Song of the Dryads Merciless Eviction they are pretty cheap in price. Rather than inserting Swords to Plowshares

Ramp mana fast and efficiently, you're in 5 color deck. Add more creature that boost your mana and can help you survive early game by chump block with it. Add more mana rocks that can fix colors.

Take out all dragon that don't have immediate effect. Dragonlord are good but not all worth it. Dragonlord Silumgar n Dragonlord Dromoka is the best. Take out Crucible of Fire. Really? your creature is huge and flying, better give the slot to another card.

Cheat some dragon out, not to manually cast it. Quicksilver Amulet Dragon Arch Pattern of Rebirth etc

Add more drawer for card advantage.

Add some combo to stealing game :)
