First I'll start with your Voltron package. Aqueous Form needs to replace Invisibility. Spectra Ward is bad (protection gets in your way) and can be replaced with Steel of the Godhead. I'd also find room for Shielded by Faith for more wrath protection. Your equipment is underwhelming and I'd probably only keep the boots and get Sword of Feast and Famine ((and Aggravated Assault to go with it).
Your ramp package is really small for a 6 drop you want out asap. I'd suggest dropping Darksteel Ingot and Jeskai Banner (3 drops that only add 1 mana don't belong here) to make room for the other 2 signets, Talisman of Progress, Fellwar Stone, and Pentad Prism. 3 drops to consider include Basalt Monolith, Worn Powerstone, and Coalition Relic. I'm also partial to Crystal Vein as ramp here.

I've been playing Uril for a few years myself and I have a few recommendations (which, my list is here to give you reference from where my advice stems, as my list tries for t3 Uril and to KO someone by turn 4/5: Uril: You Ain't Seen Nothing Yeti).
Argentum Armor seems like an odd inclusion when not running Runes of the Deus, which lets you easily one shot a player when combined with 1 of most other auras (Shield of the Oversoul + Runes of the Deus = 26 Commander damage). Why destroy a permanent a player controls when you can make Uril go from 5 damage to 18 with a single aura and potentially just knock the player out of the game? Sure, it's a little bit slower, but it actively serves to end an opponent rather than just gaining you some life (then again, in my list I can plop a t3 Uril into t4 Runes + any 1 cmc aura to kill 1 player before they untap for their own fourth turn, so I don't necessarily consider its speed to be a negative factor when Pollenbright Wings is in this deck).
Spectra Ward isn't a great choice for Uril. I used to play it, but it prevents you from putting any additional auras on Uril after you cast it. Spectra Ward is more of a Bruna card since she can bring auras out of hand and graveyard without targeting, and even with Replenish that isn't easy to get around. You could easily find yourself stuck if you have less than an ideal hand, is what I'm saying. Also, Spectra Ward only really prevents damage effects from harming Uril, like Blasphemous Act (non-targeting damage sweepers), and doesn't help against things like Living Death, Cyclonic Rift, or Merciless Eviction, so I found my list to run better without it since indestructible effects protect better than Spectra Ward does, such as Shielded by Faith.
Cartouche of Strength is easily one of my favorite Uril cards. Give Uril +3/+3 and kill anything smaller than an 8/8 on board is nice for 2G, not to mention it gives him needed evasion. I feel like that'd be more worthwhile than Mage Slayer, since Mage Slayer is evasion but it doesn't deal Commander damage (which means you're hitting their 40 life total, not their 21 life total. And Mage Slayer is worthless if your opponent's decks run life gain).
Madcap Skills is just better than Exoskeleton Armor. The Armor requires their be at least 3 creatures in graveyards (which you don't run a huge number of yourself so this would almost entirely be off of your opponent's graveyards), but an immediate +5/+2 and can't be blocked except by 2 or more creatures evasion seems a lot more valuable since it's immediate and doesn't require the game drag on, and also doesn't get smaller once opponents begin dying and their graveyards leave the game with them. Tilonalli's Crown is also very similar and slightly stronger than Madcap Skills, too!
As opposed to the above advice, Daybreak Coronet will probably be more beneficial than one of the other equipment cards, as it provides vigilance, lifelink, and +5/+5.
Plea for Guidance is a card I dropped because of how mana-hungry it was, but it can be used to set up Bear Umbra + Aggravated Assault by itself, which is pretty powerful in slower meta games.
Overall, nice deck. Hope this helps you.

Ravenrose, sure I’ll take a look at the decks. Also, thank you for the suggestions! I’ll take them in careful consideration. As for protection from board wipes. I have Felidar Umbra, Flickerform, Indestructibility, Gift of Immortality and Shielded by Faith to help with that.

encelade: I'm happy to hear that the deck is treating you well! I agree with what you said regarding stax/MLD being a reasonable strategy for RW. This is why I was really tempted to playtest Chandra Ablaze in my list, since our opponents will likely have bigger hands than us, and equalizing hand sizes could be considered a form of stax. However, it is hard to justify her since the only ability we would ever want to use is her -2 and she costs 6. Sadly, I have not yet been able to playtest the recent changes I made of Teferi's Protection and Blood Moon, but I had Onward // Victory and Temur Battle Rage in the list since I built it in October, and those cards were solid. Depending on playtest results, I might have to swap them back in if I find that we lack enough finishing power. However, I just bought Blood Moon, and I really do want to find a spot for it. Shielded by Faith is another card I was considering swapping out for the Blood Moon. I can understand completely wanting to play the deck more before tweaking the list. You are winning with it - if it isn't broken, don't fix it!
Also, your changes sound very reasonable. Before I acquired my copy of mana vault, I was running Mind Stone in its place.

Really cool deck!!! Have you considered Tallowisp? It could be used to grab things like Gift of Immortality, Shielded by Faith, and Indestructibility if you decided to go with a package like that. Also, Shining Shoal could be interesting with your general as you can tailor its cmc to destroy a specific target.
