Nice deck! Got a couple ideas for you.. I'm a big fan of Duelist's Heritage over Battle Mastery... Sword of the Animist is great in non green decks especially Voltron style ones... Inspiring Statuary is great with lots of equipment cards... I like effects like Dictate of Heliod over aura pump spells here since you have so many small value creatures, plus a bunch fly. Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx can get crazy in 2 color decks. Also I feel like you could use some big card draw spells. There's so much black card draw out there that uses life loss as a drawback that you could probably some no problem. Skeletal Scrying, Phyrexian Arena, Parting Thoughts, Ambition's Cost, Ancient Craving, Graveborn Muse, Minions' Murmurs, Moonlight Bargain, Necrologia, Promise of Power, and Underworld Connections... That's more than you need, but i would pick a few of them...Alhammarret's Archive is great in life gain but it's better with card draw effects... also Rhox Faithmender & Boon Reflection for more life gain doubling. Happy gathering!

there are a few card draw spells that I might suggest for this deck Carnage Altar, Damnable Pact, Dark Prophecy, Decree of Pain, Dregs of Sorrow, Erebos, God of the Dead, Fruit of the First Tree, Greed, Inheritance, Insist, Mind's Eye, Nantuko Cultivator, Necrologia,Symbiotic Deployment Phyrexian Etchings, Well of Discovery, Wretched Confluence
Now, all of these are not perfect, and some will probably be easily vetoed but they all can function as good card draw in your deck. Well, besides insist, but that card is just nice to have.

Mind Slash - You don't have too many recursive creatures here
Ring of Xathrid - Skithiryx won't be hanging on the battlefield for very long, unless he gets mooned or lignified.
you might want to have a sideboard for when you face a black deck, a lot of your removal is nonblack you might run into a spot of trouble vs some other decks. Possibly even reworking your removal to be less nonblack may cut out some cards.

Already got enough cards? Tutor cabal coffers, tutor answers, tutor win cons.
She also makes it waaaay easier to get stuff like dark depths + hexmage to work.

You could potentially do better with some earlier ramp, some card draw, and couple more pieces of wrath/spot removal.
Consider Coldsteel Heart, Fellwar Stone, or maybe even Pentad Prism as cheaper, earlier options to ramp. If you've the budget for it, Mana Crypt is wonderful and the two Moxen ((Mox Diamond, Chrome Mox) are good in certain builds. I don't think they'd fit too well here, but they're something to consider if you ever need to quickly ramp into a commander.
As for the card draw, take a look into Necropotence, Phyrexian Arena, Bloodgift Demon, Greed, Erebos, God of the Dead, Necrologia, or Painful Truths. Mardu is well poised to abuse black's card draw with white's lifegain. Make up what you have in color-supported ramp with pure value/drawing engines.
As for the removal, if really depends on the rest of your playgroup. I know more casual/battle cruiser group hate wraths, but I'd definitely consider single-target, answer-alls like Anguished Unmaking, Chaos Warp. Vindicate, Utter End, or the ever-political Council's Judgment. While I see you have a couple wraths already, consider Merciless Eviction, akroma's wrath or Austere Command if you want some more flexibility on your board-wipes.
If you want to lean into a full assortment of fliers, consider Magus of the Moat. He gels very well in flying-centric decks, and I personally love him in my Kaalia list. You'd obviously have to make a few modifications to negate some of the downsides, but it's something to consider should you ever make some changes.
Speaking of Kaalia, with the number of applicable targets you're running, she might actually fit well into your 99. While there isn't a ton of overlap between the two decks, consider taking a glance at my Kaalia list for some more general Mardu-based inspiration. Upvotes are always welcome, too!

Equipment seem good with glissa's ability. Have thought about Grafted Exoskeleton | Viridian Longbow | Tainted Strike | Fireshrieker | and anything to make tokens like Hornet Queen and Ishkanah, Grafwidow?
