The best (besides fetches) for this deck would be 4 Jungle Shrine

For my taste, you have too many cards that benefit your opponents just as much as they help you. Archangel of Strife could be Thunderfoot Baloth or Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite. Borderland Explorer could be Sylvan Ranger or Borderland Ranger or Civic Wayfinder. Ghirapur Orrery and Rites of Flourishing could be virtually any card draw engines that helps only you: Drumhunter, Garruk's Packleader, Magus of the Library, Primordial Sage, Mind's Eye, Seer's Sundial, and Staff of Nin all come to mind. Collective Voyage could be Cultivate or Nissa's Pilgrimage.
The next problem is that you are light on land. I use less land than most people, and you are at least 2 lands short for me, probably more like 3-4. And two of your lands don't produce any mana, meaning you would need even more. You could replace Evolving Wilds with Naya Panorama or Krosan Verge, or just add them at the expense of a creature or enchantment. You have all sorts of conditional taplands and Grand Coliseum, so replacing one of them with (or just adding) Jungle Shrine doesn't seem like a bad idea.
You are also light on spot removal, a trap I have fallen into more than once. Terastodon would probably have a home in your creature mix, and Fade into Antiquity, Krosan Grip, or even just Naturalize would not be a waste of space.

I'm afraid there's some land cards that aren't legal for this deck:
Gruul Turf, Jungle Shrine, Rootbound Crag, Sandsteppe Citadel, and Savage Lands can't be used because they all have Green Mana symbols which is a color not found on either of your Commanders. You should replace them with: Boros Garrison, Rakdos Carnarium, Clifftop Retreat, Isolated Chapel, and Terramorphic Expanse.
If you're interested I know a couple of infinite life-gain combos. If you cast Volcano Hellion and have something that will give it lifelink at instant speed or have a card out such as Nearheath Pilgrim or Whip of Erebos, then you can choose the Hellion to do 2 billion damage to you and a creature and since it has lifelink you won't take any of the damage dealt to you and whatever the hellion damages you gain that 2 billion life or whatever number you want it to be.
Another infinite life gain combo would be to use Boros Reckoner, then if something were to deal damage to Boros Reckoner you could cast Rush of Vitality on it giving it Indestuctible and Lifelink. Then whatever damage is dealt to the reckoner you can have it deal that much to itself causing it deal damage again which you can choose itself again and again and again. Since it has Indestructible it won't die from taking repeated loops of damage and for every loop you gain that much life since it has lifelink.

Wild Research has a color identity, and is not legal for your deck.
The only way I can think of to attach lots of auras to Uril at the same time is to play Retether, Open the Vaults, or Replenish while you have Uril out and a lot of auras in the graveyard already. Either that or play Primal Surge and hope you don't hit a non-permanent. Up to you whether you think either of those are a good idea.
The ONLY ways for you to deal infect damage with Uril in Naya colors are Grafted Exoskeleton and Triumph of the Hordes. There are no other cards that grant infect to a creature outside of blue and black.
Symmetrical card draw is very bad in EDH, since it just gives people more gas to answer you or win the game ahead of you. Font of Mythos, Horn of Greed, Howling Mine, Omen Machine, Temple Bell, and Rites of Flourishing should all be cut. Wheel of Fortune and Reforge the Soul are usually better because you can wait to cast them until you have no hand and your opponents have lots of cards, but you actually have better options in green, so I'd recommend cutting at least Reforge.
Replace with the following: Sram, Senior Edificer, Kor Spiritdancer, Rishkar's Expertise, Sage's Reverie, Soul's Majesty, Abzan Beastmaster, Mesa Enchantress, Verduran Enchantress, and Eidolon of Blossoms (maybe).
You also NEED better ramp. Tithe, Cultivate, Journey of Discovery, Elfhame Sanctuary, and Kodama's Reach are all sub-par and should be cut. 41 lands is also WAY too high. You'll be able to ramp much more consistantly if you cut that down. You can go down to 35 lands without a problem, and then after that you can cut one land for every 0 CMC mana rock you add to the deck. (Don't worry about Exploration, Burgeoning, and Oracle of Mul Daya being less effective. The extra draw factor will offset that. I would probably cut Azuza though, since she doesn't give you much if you aren't flooded with land.) Out of your lands, Jungle Shrine, Maze of Ith, Mikokoro, Center of the Sea, and Temple of the False God are all kind of bad and could be cut. Some better utility lands would be Kessig Wolf Run and Hall of the Bandit Lord.
All of the following are better ramp than you have: Mana Crypt, Mox Diamond, Chrome Mox, Lotus Petal, Lotus Bloom, Ancient Tomb, Nature's Lore, Three Visits, Coalition Relic, Boros Signet, Selesnya Signet, Gruul Signet, Llanowar Elves, Fyndhorn Elves, Elvish Mystic, Avacyn's Pilgrim, Dryad Arbor (tutored off of Green Sun's Zenith, Harrow, Crop Rotation (into Ancient Tomb), Gemstone Caverns, Chromatic Lantern (maybe), Joraga Treespeaker (maybe), Skyshroud Claim (maybe), Trace of Abundance (maybe), Fertile Ground (maybe), Utopia Sprawl (maybe), and Wild Growth (maybe). You may also want to consider Herald of the Pantheon or Hero of Iroas to reduce the cost of your spells.
Now, on to the auras. You have a ton of auras that don't really do... anything? I get that you want to buff Uril as much as possible, but EDH is format of card advantage, and you really shouldn't be playing cards that just read, "your commander gets +2/+2."
I would cut all of the following Abzan Runemark, Angelic Destiny (this really doesn't give you much for 4 mana), Asha's Favor, Burrowing, Call To Serve, Cave Sense, Crown of Awe, Dust Corona, Eternal Warrior, Griffin Guide, Gryff's Boon, Inviolability (He already going to be the biggest thing around, why do you need this?), Murder Investigation (You have no support for these tokens.), Nimbus Wings, Serra's Embrace, Triclopean Sight, Vigilance, and Vow of Duty.
And here's what I recommend in their place:
Extra protection for your commander: Shielded by Faith, Spider Umbra, Hyena Umbra, Felidar Umbra, Bear Umbra, and Flickerform. (Speaking of protection, Tajuru Preserver, Grand Abolisher, Vexing Shusher, Gaea's Herald, and Sigarda, Host of Herons are all good ways to make sure Uril can't be messed with.)
Also put in Spirit Loop. It's cheap and comes back if Uril leaves play somehow.
Other miscellaneous stuff:
Heliod's Pilgrim, Open the Armory, and Plea for Guidance are other tutors you could include. Open the Armory also grabs Grafted Exoskeleton and Helm of the Gods if you put them in, so I'd recommend it.
Nomad Mythmaker might make a useful recovery tool.
Mayael's Aria buffs Uril, gains you life, and can straight up win the game for you, nuff said.
If you can find the space, you could really use better board control to deal with problem permanents. Here are some good removal spells in your colors: Swords to Plowshares, Beast Within, Chaos Warp, Oblation, Krosan Grip, Oblivion Ring, Qasali Pridemage, Return to Dust, Hull Breach, Winds of Rath, Chandra's Ignition, Austere Command, and Wrath of God.
And that's all I can think of at the moment. Good luck.

If you're playing in really large multiplayer settings, you also probably want more of an emphasis on cards that affect everyone. That means cards like Wildfire, Armageddon, Balance, Wrath of God, etc. Ajani Vengeant also seems super questionable since there aren't many ways to defend it and the card is just overall super meh.

I made a deck with Silverfur Partisan as well some time ago, if you want to take a look at it i can link you to it, it is about 50$ as well, so it might have some budget cards you could be interested in.
I think Silverfur Partisan + Zada, Hedron Grinder is an amazing combo and should be considered if you try to pump out wolf token for good.If you dont want/have Zada, i think a neat option is to incorporate Strive spells into the deck. Cards like Twinflame, Colossal Heroics, Nature's Panoply, Setessan Tactics, Harness by Force and Rouse the Mob come to mind if you want to get more than one trigger out of one card.
Warriors' Lesson also gives you more than one trigger, and draws you cards as well, so i think that might be interesting to you as well.
The other option i see is to splash white by adding Jungle Shrine instead of Rugged Highlands and perhaps one more Evolving Wilds and 1 Plains instead of 1 Forest/Mountain each, to gain access to cards like Watchwolf, Reap What Is Sown, Seeds of Strength and Travel Preparations and powerful sideboard options like Condemn or Feat of Resistance
I hope some of my rambling was of help to you =)

Alright, I just need to get this off my chest. I do not believe that you should be going into Naya colors. In my opinion, you should try to push for Jeskai colors. You get cards like Goblin Electromancer or Stormchaser Chimera, plus, all the wonders Blue has to offer.
I am not here to tell you what colors to play. I am here to recommend to you what cards to play with the colors of your deck. Let's get started, shall we?
Now, you do not have any cards with a CMC higher than 3. Let's work with that. Because you have a lower CMC than most people, you have the ability to be aggressive land-wise. You have the ability to impose total Armageddon among your opponents. You could just keep it as a super-secret-sideboard-tactic, or you could mainboard it. Either way, it works.
Also, since you are playing Naya, lets go through some basic Naya cards. These are standard Naya cards that I believe should be heavily considered when playing these colors:
Naya Charm: Extra versatility, for whatever you want to do.
Jungle Shrine: Three colored land... What more do I need to say? Mana fixing on lock!
Woolly Thoctar: This is the true meaning of value. This will protect you from imminent land threats while you pour burn spells on your opponent.
I have one more suggestion, and that would be Bloodbraid Elf. I have played this card many times, and it has yet to fail me once. This card (Specifically the Cascade mechanic) targets everything that is not a land (Not just creatures as I once thought). This allows you to cast any card in your library for free while getting an aggressive creature out of it as well. Also, you don't need to cast the spell you get, so for example if you pull an Armageddon when you really don't need it, you are safe.
I hope my list helps, and I hope you have many great games with this deck!
