Hey there. I was thinking you might need more "umbra" auras to protect your Uril once he's out. Felidar Umbra or Snake Umbra would be good to look at. Would recommend taking our Mirri, and replace her with another enchantment, maybe Aura of Silence for a bit more control on the field. Dawn Charm or Silence was fun for protection too.

I like your theme here, and it looks like a lot of fun to play. I think you should remove Snake Umbra and Eel Umbra, as I don't think they fit the theme of your deck. They say the creature "gets +1/+1," not a +1/+1 counter. So I don't think their bonuses add counters like your deck wants them to (unless there is some ruling here I don't know about). In their place, you could throw in some solid card draw options like Rhystic Study and Phyrexian Arena.

Overall, though, I like it.

Whether you pop in a snake or attack with one, Kindred Discovery will net you a card; and Snake Umbra is an on-theme drawer with added protection.

Sword of the Animist will get you lands, lands you can use for Orochi Hatchery or your commander's ability.

Won't you please check out my tribal snake deck?

He is pretty interesting. At this point I would recommend looking into Sidisi, Brood Tyrant and Karador, Ghost Chieftain as both of those will run a similar play style.

I do want to say that I see many different ways you can go. For maximum value out of him you would want to evenly spread across permanent types. You can also be more focused one way or another. So what kind of win condition were you thinking?

You can cheat out big beat sticks but this guy doesn't cheat mana costs so that doesn't really fit. Still being able to play the same scary creature every turn until it is exiled is neat.

You can work off death triggers from things like Zulaport Cutthroat and Grave Pact, That would work well I think.

ETBs with cards like Terastodon would be great and mixes well with the death triggers.

You could run some form of superfriends with 3 colors it isn't bad and he brings back planeswalkers.

I guess voltron is an option since he brings auras and equipment back so you could keep grabbing Snake Umbra or something but he doesn't have evasion or anything else useful to that strategy.

Deadbridge Chant should be powerful here no matter how you choose to build him. Perhaps Manabond for cheap ramp since you can get your stuff back. And some sac outlets would be good, Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord is a fun one if you decide on big beat sticks for a win condition.

You would really get value from the rest of the enchantress pack, as many of them as you can afford Argothian Enchantress, Verduran Enchantress, Enchantress's Presence, Femeref Enchantress and also Sram, Senior Edificer and Kor Spiritdancer because it's not just an enchantment deck, but an aura deck.

Focus on low mana auras that provide Uril some kind of evasion or protection, not just size, Uril will grow on its own Shield of the Oversoul, Runes of the Deus, Unquestioned Authority, Cartouche of Strength, Snake Umbra and other totem armors.
Also great options Faith Unbroken and Sage's Reverie not really evasion or protection, but card draw is always so good and exiling on an aura is great utility.
