There is a lot going on in this list. I'm a little confused on the order of win cons... There is some +1/+1 counter strat, but also EBT bounce (which removes the counters). Then the life gain, which doesn't seem to have much of a payoff other than prolonging the game. Things like Sanguine Bond, Archangel of Thune or Phyrexian Arena would put your life gain to good use. Also because of the life gain, Anguished Unmaking feels like a better fit than Utter End. The board wipes are also curious... short of Restoration Angel or Archangel Avacyn  Flip how would you save your side from the wraths? Wouldn't wraths put you just as behind (if not more) than your opponent, considering you spent time/resources putting on counters and leveling up?

This deck isn't a tier one strategy, and it won't be. Using Slither Blade and other unblockable weenies and "when deals damage do X" is good, but they need to be cheap, and win you the game. Quietus Spike does half their life, and Inquisitor's Flail doesn't double that, only the one damage Slither Blade and his ilk themselves deal, even Fireshrieker only does 3/4ths of their life, as it takes half of it, and then half again. This makes it a 13 mana, 3 card combo that doesn't win. You could use Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker and Restoration Angel for 9 mana and two cards, both of which are better on their own. This deck is trash, and isn't good for budget. 2x Zombie Infestation + 4x Treasure Hunt +4x Reliquary Tower + 25x Swamp + 25x Island is better for budget.

I hope you were joking when you said "Tier One".

you should put in some flicker effects like Restoration Angel or Cloudshift

There are some engines which are very common for the archetype:

The next step would probably be maximize Enter the Battlefield creatures:

There's a whole bunch of them that can help with the direction you choose for your deck.

Follow that with ramp, removal and maybe protection and you're on your way.

I used to run 2 Spell Queller in the main but I switched them out because they don't jive well with Supreme Verdict, but I do like the extra counters and flying. I think if I were to put them back I would need to switch out Supreme Verdict for another removal, maybe Condemn. But yea you're right without Celestial Colonnade its harder to close out the game so Spell Queller and Restoration Angel could close that gap. If I were to try out that switch what would you recommend I take out?

Unless you already have the Gideons, I wouldn't run them.

Instead, I would go Restoration Angel and Spell Queller since you really lack a way to close out games or put some pressure. These flyers do that pretty well. White Sun's Zenith is also surprisingly good, though Secure the Wastes is arguably better since it's much easier to cast, but mostly interesting if you run Snapcaster Mage.

If you wanna reduce the price even more, get rid of fetches and play Hallowed Fountain instead.

Then you could save up enough money for either Snapcaster Mage, Celestial Colonnade or even Cryptic Command, which are the top cards for a UWx control shell ;)

Thank you Sjorpha.

Yes, I have been thinking of removing Restoration Angel. Eventhough I find it quite useful sometimes vs removals. But that card is probably the weakest and is the one with lesser of synergy in this deck (kinda only works with Noxious Gearhulk as you said). I have a hard time finding a good replacement for that card though... :/.
