Obviously, I'll have to drop some more, but I'm not sure what yet.

I'm not sure what your opinion of infinite combos is, but Grand Architect + Pili-Pala provides infinite taps, and therefore infinite mill. I'm no master of the strategy, but I think this could work. Good luck!

Grand Architect is a bonkers card when run in an artifact deck, and I'd recommend running some all stars like Walking Ballista and Smuggler's Copter to round out the deck. This archetype recently saw play in a number of modern events, so I also recommend having a skim of this decklist: https://www.mtggoldfish.com/archetype/modern-u-39361#paper. Hope this helps!

I like this deck a lot! I've been thinking about making an Oona deck for about three years now, and this looks like a good intersection of budget and quality.
I see you already have the Basalt Monolith and Rings of Brighthearth for an infinite mana combo. You could add Bloodchief Ascension for infinite life loss and mill when active and combined with Mindcrank.
Another idea would be Training Grounds. It gives you 2 extra cards of mill every time you use Oona.
You could think about adding The Scarab God , too. He combos well with Oona's mill, allowing you to recur and remove problematic creatures in your opponents' graves. His cost is also reduced by Training Grounds.
Liquimetal Coating allows creatures with activated abilities to be targeted by Grand Architect. Imagine using Oona to create Faeries, then tap those Faeries for more mana to activate her ability with, then tap those new Faeries to do the same, etc. You can do it as long as you have colored mana stored up and are generating enough Faeries to tap for colorless mana.
Bog Initiate completes the loop, allowing you to turn your infinite colorless mana into Black and effectively combo out and end the game with Oona.
Have you thought about adding Leyline of the Void? Exiling graveyards in Commander is always good, especially when it's only your opponents'.

I like the idea, but for the Sb, I would either play Shattering Spree or Smash to Smithereens over Shatter, and I would play either Searing Blaze or Searing Blood over lightning strike for abzan company, elves, Grand Architect aggro, affinity and stuff like that. Otherwise, looks awesome. Also, maybe some graveyard hate?

Thanks! Phyrexian Metamorph is a bit expensive for me right now, but I might consider adding a couple of them eventually, if they never print any better illusions, haha. It's even better when you're running both that and Grand Architect - in fact a lot of Illusion decks do, and some even run Wurmcoil Engine - but I decided I wanted mine to stay pure-Illusions.
Gossamer Phantasm and Illusionary Servant are definitely the weakest creatures in the deck right now (a shame - I love the art on Phantasm so much!), and would be the first ones to go if I did add the Metamorph or another new, stronger creature.
