When I first built Zurgo, I didn't want to put in Worldslayer until the deck had been tuned more. As blowing up all the land with only a Zurgo left in play that could be removed by some cheap white removal would make for some long drawn out games.

I would recommend a Grand Abolisher since most angels are big and scary and instant speed removal is common, some board wipes this deck sorely needs include: Catastrophe, Wrath of God or Day of Judgment, Hour of Revelation, if you're feeling extra cancerous then maybe Armageddon or Worldslayer. Overall I like this deck, it just needs a little bit more tuning and you can have a brutal battlecruiser style angel tribal.

Nobody has suggested Worldslayer--Zurgo's Favorite Sword. Kinda hard to get it to stick, sometimes, but it really does the job FAST if you can swing through.

If you want to be a total jerk, you can add in Worldslayer. Attach it to tajic and start swinging. Every turn everything else is wiped except tajic and worldslayer

I'm going to have to second the Zurgo Helmsmasher. A friend of mine runs him fairly budget and untuned and it is still a monster to deal with... Zurgo absolutely loves board wipes, Worldslayer + helmsmasher is just... I have no words honestly. I think my friend runs 10 wipes, I could be wrong. 3ish of them get around indestructible, just in case but otherwise Zurgo lives through them. And Zurgo + Sunforger gets to the magical 11 damage so you go from 3 swings to 2 swings. That is huge for a voltron deck.
All that said I'm also going to plug my own voltron deck Glissa's Tech. It isn't all that fast at winning a game but everything just keeps showing up no matter how many times the board gets wiped. Sometimes I wipe the board right after a Vandalblast and most my equipment comes rolling back out. Equip costs are pretty easy to deal with since I have all the manas.
But to go back to your question of best voltron colors I'm going to have to say the ones you enjoy the most. Voltron is a rather bad way to win in EDH, you have a lot of work to do when you sit down against 3 others and they are not going to make it easy on you. They will always find a way to kill your commander or kill all the stuff on him. So whatever you choose make sure it is something you like the feel and look of. Zurgo and Glissa are very different but they are both great in their own ways, you really can make just about any commander with a few decent keywords into a nightmare for your enemies.

You mentioned that you get combos assembled on turn 15... I have to ask, what are you playing this against? While I've seen (and built) some particularly horrific control decks designed to stall well into turn 20, there's no way I would let you assemble this combo. Not that it would make a difference--any semi-competitive long-term control deck would have rendered your combo useless ages ago through cards like Ensnaring Bridge.
When it comes down to it, if you want to build a colourless competitive deck, you have two real options: Tron or Affinity. I'm going to try to limit my feedback to suggestions you can easily slot into your current deck, but I do not think you will ever make this overly competitive. Darksteel Forge is too much mana for a card that does not win you the game that turn. Altar of Shadows is an absurd amount of mana for a card that not only doesn't win you the game, but requires you to spend another absurd amount of mana just to make use of it.
Worldslayer is too much mana, but its a fun card, and exactly the kind of unusual card I'd build a deck around. But there are better ways of doing this--you'll want a mix of tron and naturally indestructible creatures.
I think you should really consider what direction you want to go before asking for feedback. You're kind of all over the place. You have too many cards you are only running one copy of, and no real synergy other than "colourless". You have artifact-matters cards, but also Eldrazi. Your converted mana cost is blisteringly high.
I know that all sounds a bit harsh, and for that I apologize. However, you asked on your forum thread how to make this deck more competitive, and the simple answer is "figure out what you wish to do first, and optimize from there."
That said, I'd hate to be that guy who gives negative feedback without some guidance on the way forward. Here are a couple suggestions:
There's no reason to run any lands that enter tapped--they only slow you down. Add three more Darksteel Citadels to utilize artifact synergies, then add some black producing lands for Cranial Plating.
I'll keep an eye on this deck and your comments, and provide more specific feedback once I have a better understanding about what exactly you are trying to do.

Fun list. I don't think you need Manalith and Star Compass, since you only have one color. I'd suggest replacing them with Sol Ring and Pearl Medallion(both budget friendly). More expensive options could be Thran Dynamo and Urza's Incubator.
Worldslayer is a very good card for when you have your commander out, since your entire board is indestructible. The advantage of having Avacyn, Angel of Hope is that your board stays alive when mass destruction/removal is used. You can abuse this: Wrath of God, Day of Judgment, Rout, Tragic Arrogance, Fumigate. I'd say you could put 6 of these kinds of spells in your deck.
You have a lot of angels, so you could also add Coat of Arms and Vanquisher's Banner or replace one of your lands with Path of Ancestry , naming angels. Speaking of lands, there are some utility lands you could put in, like Rogue's Passage and Mystifying Maze. There's a good land for ramp but it's a little pricier: Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx.
I hope these suggestions will help you, some are budget friendly, some a little less. Have fun.
