Apologies for splitting this across two posts.
Here are the cards I would consider cutting based on a cursory look at your deck. Since I am not intimately familiar with your deck, some of these suggestions might be incorrect:
Retether - you do not have very many targets for this spell (5 total), reducing its effectiveness.
Surestrike Trident requires an absurd amount of mana investment, and provides little utility.
Mindcrank is a solid card with good combo abilities, but I did not see anything that directly interacted with it. While you cause significant life loss to trigger Mindcrank, I am not sure it justifies a card slot.
Amulet of Vigor does not do much for you, other than provide moderate improvements to your land base and allowing a faster trigger of Sword of the Ages. Fixing your lands would effectively eliminate the need for this card.
I do not think Norritt provides enough utility to spend 4 mana on a 1/1.
I do not think you have enough targets to justify Panharmonicon either.

Not bad! May want to change to EDH type and you have to add your landbase. I'd suggest 36 lands, so you'll need to cut a few others.
3 or less CMC value cards to consider ( not auto-includes, just value to consider )
Blessing of Leeches lose 1 life on your upkeep, unlimited regenerate creature. Too powerful not to include.
Asha's Favor Vigilance, First Strike
Aspect of Gorgon +1/+3 and Deathtouch
Cartouche of Ambition Lifelink and a -1/-1 counter on a creature of your choice.
Awesome Presence Offensive version of Propaganda.
Cho-Manno's Blessing Protection from colour of choice. Good for preventing damage and becoming unblockable.
Chromatic Armor Protection from colours of choice on the fly for mana.
Cloak of Mists Unblockable
Crab Umbra Pay 3 mana to untap Zur and it has totem armor.
Curiosity Draw cards when Zur deals any damage.
Daily Regimen 2 mana to put a permanent +1/+1 counter on creature as many times as you want.
Daybreak Coronet Bit more expensive, but 2 mana, +3/+3 first strike, vigilance and lifelink.
False Demise Cheat death once.
Glistening Oil infect for 2 mana.
Infinite Authority punishes opponents and rewards you with +1/+1 counters if they attack or block you.
Kithkin Armor 1 mana unblockable by power 3 or greater and sac the aura for prevention of damage to zur from one source
Pemmin's Aura On demand 1 mana shroud for turn and 1 mana to untap zur
Pretender's Claim tap down all lands defending player controlls
Sadistic Glee +1/+1 counter every time any creature dies.
Shade's Form Pay 1 black as many times as you want to give creature +1/+1 until end of turn and when creature dies, return it to the battlefield under your control.
Skeletal Grimace +1/+1 and pay 1 black to regenerate this creature.
Sleeper's Robe Fear and draw a card when you deal combat damage
Strange Augmentation +1/+1 base, potentially +3/+3 for one mana if you have a few different types of cards in your graveyard.
Sultai Runemark +2/+2 deathtouch
Traveler's Cloak Draw a card and Zur gets landwalk for a land type of your choice.
Triclopean Sight Untaps Zur, gives him +1/+1 and vigilance.
Unholy Strength 1 mana +2/+1
auto-includes:Pariah Save's your ass. Pair with indestructability to ignore damage.
Auramancer's Guise +2/+2 for each enchantment. Very overpowered.
Entangler Zur can block all the creatures.
Righteous Authority Esper has +1/+1 buff problems. This will buff Zur significantly and give you additional card draw. With blue and black in your arsenal, card draw shouldn't be a problem.
Sage's Reverie Big +1/+1 buff and big card draw. Play late to mid game to turn Zur from a wimp into one shot killer.
PookandPie on Uril
2 months ago
I too, run Uril. Here are my suggestions for cuts to get you down to 100:
Avacyn, Angel of Hope. You can make your most important permanent indestructible with Shield of the Oversoul. By the time you could cast Avacyn, you should have been able to knock someone out of the game long before that point.
Abundance. It's really not that good of a card. You should be able to crush mill decks before they grind you out and you don't need to avoid drawing lands later in the game because you should be able to clear out a table of people by turn 7-8 even on a budget (so playing Abundance and getting 2 triggers off of it is meh for 4 mana).
Sigil of the Empty Throne is win-more like crazy. You only run 30 enchantments, and if you're casting all of those auras you should've killed everyone with Uril already.
Celestial Mantle is win-more as well. It's only +5/+5 (you get the same power boost from Madcap Skills at 4 mana less!) and doubling your life total isn't really that beneficial when you're out to lower everyone else's life totals.
Mayael's Aria is win-more. If Uril has 20 or more power, you've already won the game, why go through the extra step of playing the enchantment? Coincidentally, Seize the Day costs 1 more mana and, if you have a 21 power Uril, lets you smack down multiple players in a single turn. That's pretty important.
Sphere of Safety. It's just a worse Dueling Grounds. It's too much mana and you should typically have the biggest threat at the table. I originally had Safety in my deck too, but I took it out a long time ago.
Pick one of your enchantment recursion tools and remove 2-3 of the rest. Crystal Chimes is worse than Replenish or Retether, Nomad Mythmaker is slow and vulnerable (creature), and Starfield of Nyx can recur your enchantment without forcing you to pay mana, but it makes your non-Auras vulnerable to the most common removal in the game, creature removal. I'd, personally, keep 1 of these and remove the other two. You also have Open the Vaults, Retether, and Reviving Melody, which I also think is too much. You have 6 right now, I think it would be best to just run 2-3, so drop 3-4 of these cards. I, personally, would use 1 repeatable recursion tool (Nomad/Starfield) and a single 1 shot recursion tool.
Fountain Watch is too expensive for the ability he provides. Sterling Grove costs several mana less and you don't even run that many artifacts, so you're already running the better of the two cards, so drop Watch.
Venser's Journal doesn't help you kill people and is a very mediocre card in a deck that wants to beat opponents down.
Hero of Iroas. You're not going to be putting auras on him when Uril and Kor Spiritdancer are much better plan A's and B's. Making auras cost 1 less is mediocre when you could just run real ramp.
Enduring Ideal is very, very bad here. Your plan hinges on a Commander creature, so if you cast Ideal and someone Cyclonic Rifts your board back to your hand, you just knocked yourself out of the game (congratulations: you played yourself meme). For as out of hand as it can make your board state, it can backfire so, so much worse. Drop it ASAP.
That's 13-14 cards dropped to make it back to 100.
Now I'm going to inundate you with my favorite Uril cards:
Madcap Skills- 5 power for 2 mana, plus evasion. Extremely good, I recommend it.
Cartouche of Strength- Removal on Uril plus an additional +3 power, and evasion. Highly recommended.
Snake Umbra- Protects Uril, gives +3 power, and lets you draw cards when Uril hits. Nothing but a lot of love for that card.
Aura of Silence- the only thing better than playing your own enchantment cards is making your opponents cards cost more. It's hilarious to watch opponents try to figure out ways to play around it once it's down, as it'll shut off opposing enchantment/artifact strategies with ease.
Dueling Grounds- does basically the same job of Sphere of Safety at 2 mana less.
Aggravated Assault- Infinite combat steps with Uril + Bear Umbra. It speaks for itself and is a Uril staple.
Impending Disaster- Hate Cyclonic Rift? Slapping this down will prevent them from ever casting it against you. It's easy to play- Get Uril out, enchant him with a couple things, lay this out and then beat everyone to death while they can't cast spells.
Consider: Trace of Abundance and Wild Growth over some cards in your current ramp package. They trigger Enchantreess effects and ramp you, so they're pretty reasonable. Hunter's Insight is a great little card that costs 2 mana less than Hunter's Prowess but does a very similar effect; good enough to be run alongside it, I feel. Garruk, Primal Hunter is another one you may want to look at, as well, due to his -3.
Quick added note: Remove Gift of Immortality for Shielded by Faith. It's generally better unless you develop some odd 4 card combo board state- Gift makes Uril go to the graveyard which means you lose all of the auras attached to him, while Shielded prevents him from ever getting destroyed in the first place (plus, you can slap it on something before you cast Uril and move it to him later! Flexibility is awesome).
That's all I got for you right now. I have a Uril deck, located here: Uril: You Ain't Seen Nothing Yeti, check it out if you want some ideas. Have fun!

I am thinking about building a similar deck myself.
In my opion Blue is a better third color for the deck than Black (which doesn't offer much besides Grisly Salvage) as you get cards like:
Forbidden Alchemy, Strategic Planning, the flashback mode of Tracker's Instincts and also Invisible Stalker as a creature and Auramancer's Guise as a powerful aura.
Instead of running so many auras/creatures I'd rather play more self-milling cantrips.
Vessel of Nascency/Tracker's Instincts and Gather the Pack/Commune with the Gods/Grapple with the Past/Mulch can be decent options.

Hey bud, I love the deck you can check mine out as well if you want. Just wanted to let you know that Retether does not return your curses to the battlefield.

Here are some sweet cards that I think you could consider for this deck. Serra's Sanctum, Replenish, Retether, Daybreak Coronet, Steel of the Godhead, Vanishing Important to note that Phasing out takes all attached cards with the creature, Pariah, Rest in Peace, Energy Field Combo's well with Rest in Peace, Doomwake Giant, and Sigil of the Empty Throne.

Here is my attempt to figure out my "7 by 9" classification of my deck (Referenced article about "7 by 9"). The deck doesn't really fit into the model well since many of the cards overlap by just being enchantments that there's a lot of categories/single cards that only care if other enchantments get played.
The deck itself cost a lot to get rolling and I like where the ramp sits right now even if it's a bit high on cards, but being a 5 color deck has its requriements. I'd like to increase the number of cost reduction cards. And slightly increase the number of draw, and combo cards. If I had to I would probably remove some of the buff/removal/graveyard cards. The issue I have though is that I want to keep the same number of creatures as early agression is this decks downfall. If I could I would also update the mana base and then be able to cut some of the ramp cards.
Number of enchantments: 36 (a * represents that this card cares about enchantments) (15 are auras)
- Kodama's Reach
- Awakening Zone
- Fertile Ground
- Font of Fertility
- From Beyond
- Khalni Heart Expedition

Angelic Destiny i know its good, but it might be a bit much. I don't know how many times Flickerform has disappointed me, i would think of dropping it. Gift of Immortality any indestructible enchantment is better, it removes anything attached to him. Holy Mantle, Eldrazi Conscription are good finishers, but they cost a lot, maybe look at removing one. Open the Armory honestly you have enough search effects, this one seems the weakest. Nomad Mythmaker, Retether these cards seem so good, but they just ended up disappointing me for then i disappointed my dad so many times, they just sit in your hand way to often and not doing anything. (Replenish i like this card as it brings others back.) Also by my count you have 15 ramp spells, boy o boy that seems like quite a bit, maybe drop one or two, Commander's Sphere & Sakura-Tribe Elder seem the worst to me.
