With nobody able to help w/ this deck (Even though the fighting game series of the same name is so great), I really wanted to know what I can do to make this deck great, while faithful to the original source. Here's what I want from this:
- Creatures representing the characters of the verse.
- Lands representing the many areas of the verse
- Reasons why X (X = Card in Question.) is faithful to the original source; & also good.
- Why you think X is a good fit, even if it means sacrificing art for good effects
- Other things that are part of UNIB lore representing the other things (I'll get to it.)
- Even amounts of all 5 mana colors
- Having others help w/ some degree of knowledge of UNDER NIGHT IN-BIRTH.
I hope this helps, as I already have several things noted:
Merkava = Fathom Feeder (Voids consume w/o reason, & this Eldrazi has Ingest; & Deathtouch, which fits the bill the most about Merkava; a Void whose transformation is incomplete. That, & says Despair more than other color identities.
Ash Barrens = Abandoned Building (朽ち荒れた廃墟) (Welp, something happened to both things, so it fits.)
Mana Confluence or Cascading Cataracts = Abyss (The center of the Hollow Night; filled with Infinite EXS. Both of these are considered like the power of an Abyss; but only one can truly be forcefully Destroyed.)
Hinterland Harbor = Riverside Esplanade (川沿いの遊歩道) (Well, both have some body of Water in the Background, & are both Harbors.)
Isolated Chapel = Cathedral of Far East (極東の大聖堂) (Both have quite some religious quality to them.)
Prismatic Geoscope = The Ruby of Nothingness (虚無なる紅玉) (Both Rocks contain energy of its most powerful; although I dun think Geoscope would fit this...)
And... That's it. If anyone can help me w/ just the cards alone, that would be great as I'm using terminology for all this (I'll finish this later; let's see what we can find for now...). Thanks again for helping in advance... :)

Can't the Geoscope only tap for 3? don't you lose one mana if you spend 4 to make 3?

Ah...good ol' fashioned Sliver Hate™. All I can say is that politically - you will be weak. Prepare to be targeted heavily during games "Because Slivers". Take it as a compliment, but prepare for the worst my friend. At least, that's my perspective from my own experience. I don't know how to start lol so i'll just talk about whatever.
Creatures: So you chose to include 33 creatures - making them about 1/3 of your deck. while it's nice to have Slivers, you are limiting yourself on spells that can help you interact more with players (i.e. counterspells and removal). Speaking of Slivers, you chose pretty much the best of the best. None of those horribly misguided attempts created during the Futuresight block - i'm looking at you Reflex Sliver. I would try to cut your Slivers down to about high 20's- Maybe 28-26.
Artifacts: You don't have enough mana rocks in this deck. Since you need to rock hard and fix your manabase, you need make some room here. If you're on a budget, you can always consider the Talismans from Mirrodin, Fellwar Stone, maybe Prismatic Geoscope (I mean, it's slow but it gets you WUBRG). Also, I know it's expensive now, but getting a Paradox Engine in your deck would pay in dividends. It's essentially a value engine that wins you the game if you have Gemhide Sliver + Heart Sliver.
Enchantments: Can't really argue with the choices you made here. If you ever feel like you're hurting on draw, maybe consider Mystic Remora? It's a great T1 drop.
Instants: Can't really argue with the choices you made here. Good stuff.
Sorceries: Also solid choices - I can see that you really enjoy creature control sneaking in Peer Pressure. But I say, why not cut to the chase and drop in Expropriate or Bribery? Who needs nuance when you partake in Blatant Thievery?
I've run out of time, but i'll add another post on your landbase, and what suggestions you could use there for a stable 5 color manabase on a budget.

I actually run a fairly similar deck to this. It is Fury of the 9? Suns.
Grozoth is just insane value. Just take a good look at the 9 drops you're already running. They're all super powerful and there is a lot of them. It even gets Blasphemous Act, which is a nice board clear to have fast access to in a pinch.
