Hey, would you do:
Temple of Abandon
Ixidor, Reality Sculptor
Dictate of the Twin Gods
Scourge of Fleets
Search for Tomorrow

Right off the bat it looks really good. All of the standard categories are covered. There are a few cards though that don't pull enough weight. I'm not sure Arctic Aven, Dawnfeather Eagle, Aven Fateshaper, Serra Aviary, Brave the Sands, and Always Watching do enough to keep around. Derevi gives all your creatures a psuedo- vigilance already. I would replace these with Judge's Familiar, Windbrisk Raptor, Mindshrieker, Aerie Mystics, and Kangee, Aerie Keeper. There are also good arguments to include Mirror Entity or Beastmaster Ascension for an easy win-con, Rout or Phyrexian Rebirth to wipe the board, and Basalt Monolith or Gilded Lotus to abuse Derevi Untap triggers. Rounding out the mana base with a Seaside Haven and the bounce lands will keep your hand full. Later upgrades I would consider adding would be Kruphix, God of Horizons and Reliquary Tower to max hand size and allow you to keep all of the extra mana Derevi enables.

Remove Elder Deep-Fiend for one of the 2 big leviathans or a huge draw card, you likely won't be using its emerge and for 8 mana you should have a win condition.
Stealing commanders is extremely good, hence Control Magic. Remove that threat and get a threat for the price of 4.
I'd run Sapphire Medallion over Expedition Map if you're looking for ramp. The medallion lets you keep 1 less mana open or those instants, and speeds up your game, and is better ramp in general when you don't have some crazy land like cabal coffers. You usually search for the bounce land with map, which isn't really speeding your curve up and only nets you 1 more mana per turn after its played compared to the medallion (in the worst case). Maybe searching for Soldevi Excavations would be worth it, but you aren't really using its scry ability when you get it in our games. Same goes for Felwar stone if you are fine with color fixing without it (And I think you are). If you're casting one spell per turn then they are equal. If you are casting more than one spell per turn, then they are not equal.
The boots are good in a creature focused deck, but you aren't running a creature focused deck and your commander (unlike before) isn't the crux of your deck. Run more artifact/enchantment removal or counterspells in place of them.
If you want a good blocker with flying, rather than the drake, run Fog Bank. This is the last time I'll mention that thing and I'll stop bugging you about it.
The biggest thing though.... what's your wincon? Before it was an 18/18 monstrosity of a land, but I don't really see anything now. You could steal wincons with things like Desertion, Spelljack, Gather Specimens, Control Magic and especially Rite of Replication, I think these would fit perfect in your deck.

Phyrexian Rebirth is also a nice boardwipe in Ephara.

The idea seems very fun, but with no tutor's pretty inconsistent. Since you are not in green I would suggest running an artifact tutor package to get Torpor Orb. Besides being easier to fetch, being an artifact makes it a lot easier to stick on the board through the many creature board wipes in multiplayer edh. I'm a big fan of Whir of Invention myself, and Fabricate is great too. Although a little more pricey, Gamble is totally worth it too, it even synergizes well with all the draw form. Other options include Hoarding Dragon if you wanna go cheap, or Enlightened Tutor if you want to go expensive. Running artifact tutoring means more Despotic Scepter and hate pieces like Pithing Needle (another favorite of mine, it is SO much better than I first thought)
There are a couple of cards in the deck I don't like as much, mainly because they don't work well with Torpor Orb in play: Akroan Horse, Bruna, the Fading Light and Desolation Giant. Remember that the tokens given to your opponents are not owned by you:
From the Comprehensive Rules (Dominaria (April 27, 2018)) 110.5a A token is both owned and controlled by the player under whose control it entered the battlefield.
Desolation Giant is bad with Torpor Orb as well as without it compared to a card like Phyrexian Rebirth. If you really want the Brisela, Voice of Nightmares, and don't care that you have little to no tutors and a deck that really tries hard to stop the reanimation trigger, I won't be one to stop you, Brizzy is pretty dope ;)
Cool that you are having success with such a wild build though! Hf my guy

Okay I'm not great at stay stuff, but here's what I can do. Phyrexian Rebirth is a must, Exquisite Archangel is not great, Herald of Anguish is really not great, especially for its cost, it's worth considering whether Sun Titan does enough, as well as honestly Zur the Enchanter. Maybe this should just be a Sen Triplets control build?

This deck reminded me of why Orzhov was my favorite color combo when I first began to play this game. I don't have a whole lot of suggestions (because I love this deck so much) other than that your board-wipe package seems a little underpowered/un-fleshed-out to me. Sure, you have the basics, but the great thing about white and black is the amazing sweepers! Perhaps consider some of the following board-wipes, all of which are personal favorites.
Descend upon the Sinful: With all the decks that have graveyard recursion going around, this card is nice. It also gives you a 4/4 flyer sometimes.
Phyrexian Rebirth: Laughs in the face of token decks.
Rout: Is basically instant-speed.
Decree of Pain: Draws a bunch of cards, and is also highly versatile - allowing you to pay less mana to alter the board in a different way.

- Cradle of Vitality seems incredible here, given the lifelink from Brion.
- Sunbond is a slightly weaker but still good
- Well of Lost Dreams will keep your hand full for the same reason.
- Stalking Vengeance combos well with Brion, as well as punishes people who might try to wrath your board.
- Sigil of Distinction makes a nice reusable buff for multiple Brion flings
- Zealous Conscripts seems like an auto-include
You'll almost certainly want to play some Wrath of God style board clears, since you will often be clearing your own board with Brion. Good options besides the aforementioned wrath:
There are some other good red staples to consider that are on theme with the deck:
