Recommendations at 112 cards in decklist:
Cards to remove:
Crucible of Worlds - unless you're playing in a land destruction heavy meta, you're only likely going to benefit with this versus mill or forced discard. You're not running fetchlands so it's utility is very limited.
Illusionist's Bracers - while you have more than a handful of creatures with abilities you could double up on, the equip cost plus those activations is somewhat prohibitive. If your commander was still Sliver Queen, it would make more sense. As is it seems like an overly complicated way to double up on your effects.
Rings of Brighthearth - potentially works with Barrage Tyrant, Each activation of the tap ability Gruesome Slaughter grants your colorless creatures, Idol of Oblivion, Brood Butcher, Deepfathom Skulker, Drowner of Hope, Eldrazi Displacer, Essence Depleter, Sliver Queen, Spawnsire of Ulamog, Ugin, the Ineffable, and Golos, Tireless Pilgrim. ---- Doubling World Breaker's ability doesn't make sense. With each ability costing a minimum of 2 (minus Gruesome Slaughter's activations), and up to 7, that extra 2 is going to add up fast.
If it's worth it for you for the 11-12 cards that have the abilities, that's one thing. but I would keep it as a tentative for right now with needing to cut 12 cards from the total list (9 if you cut the 3 mentioned above)

Also, I noticed in your Maybeboard that you're looking to run Command Tower and Commander's Sphere - don't fall into that trap! Since Kozilek, the Great Distortion has no colors in his color identity, Command Tower and Commander's Sphere can't tap for any mana. For more information, check out the rulings from the Gatherer link for Commander's Sphere here.

merdrach hey, thanks for the interest. I had a stable, tight list around mid-2018, but then I sold a lot of the pieces at Grand Prix Milwaukee in November. So, right now I don't have a paper list.
That doesn't take away my 4+ year mastery of the deck though, so I'll come out and say it, if you do want to play this deck, it's gonna be pricey. You need to begin with the payoffs, Ugin, all 5 playable Eldrazi Titans are all going to be what you want to pick up first. You can make budget choices with the ramp, but it's gonna be a lot slower obviously. Cards like Jeweled Amulet are surprisingly effective.
When you're building on a budget it's easy to fall into traps, Gruesome Slaughter for example, make no mistake, is unplayable unless you're running a less tuned version of this deck with 30+ creatures. Make sure that, for boardwipes, you get the full suite of Ugin, the Spirit Dragon , Oblivion Stone , Nevinyrral's Disk , All Is Dust , and, if you're really into wiping the board, Perilous Vault , but you'd rather not exile all your ramp artifacts.

Just a few comments:1. What do you plan on sacrificing with Ashnod's Altar? Only Skittering Invasion, Spawning Bed, and Blight Herder put sacrificable creatures on the board, or you'd have to sacrifice the big ones for just 2 mana... Same goes for Eldrazi Monument by the way.
For the mana you could take a look at Blinkmoth Urn, although it may also give mana to your opponents.
2. Gruesome Slaughter sounds fun, but at which point would you actually use it? Half of your creatures seem to have Annihilator, some are so weak that the extra ability won't help, and with a 10/10 you'd probably want to swing face instead of dealing 10 to a creature "for free". Maybe Akroma's Memorial fits better if you plan to have this kind of effect.
3. Which artifacts do you plan to sacrifice with Phyrexia's Core? Otherwise it would just be as good as a Wastes (see point 4).
4. Ash Barrens, Cloudpost, and Holdout Settlement seem to add nothing more than a Wastes would do. While they may look nicer, with more Wastes you could also consider running Solemn Simulacrum and Burnished Hart.
5. You are severely lacking card draw. Consider a Mind's Eye or a Sandstone Oracle.
