Thanks for the feedback Prowler42. I should have been more specific when putting a bunch of boardwipes in my comment. I didn't mean to put all of them in. I was just listing a bunch. Since you mentioned something that targets at the beginning of each upkeep, the card Act of Authority came to mind. It's the only card with an effect like that, but it's pretty great.

Imprisoned in the Moon is great removal that synergizes with your commander!

True. I've also played Brago, and that's what I end up doing a lot. But Scroll of Fate also plays out your entire deck if you just have a single etb draw effect during the strionic resonator combo. While it doesn't generate card advantage like Lightform does, it manifests twice as many cards per turn and lets you choose what to manifest. At worst, it functions like a powerful mana rock, but at its best, its a combo piece.

If you want more wincons via blinking (outside of stax, anyway), you'll need effects that generate creatures. Some of them are Myr Battlesphere , Genesis Chamber , Drowner of Hope , Whirler Rogue , and Geist-Honored Monk . Several of these cards are good not just because they make tokens, but because they also are useful beyond their ability to just make tokens. Brago gives you an incredible amount of mana and draw in a single turn, so his ability to produce a lethal amount of creatures shouldn't be underestimated.

The Magic Mirror goes well with your strategy, and Torbran, Thane of Red Fell turns every draw into a bolt. The triple mana isn't asking for too much since you deal with the same problem with your commander. If you really want to draw, then Arjun, the Shifting Flame and Mindmoil will get you more draw than anything else you could dream of.

I love the idea. I think it needs some more divine judgment though. Sunblast Angel , Oblation , Austere Command , Hour of Revelation , Akroma's Vengeance , Descend upon the Sinful , Fumigate , End Hostilities , and of course Wrath of God and Day of Judgment . Ravnica at War could be good depending on your meta. While playing boardwipes just for flavor wouldn't be the best idea, it's also a strategic decision. Angels are slower tribe, so it's a good idea to put everybody else behind.
Outside of boardwipes, Akroma's Memorial spells death for all opponents, Herald's Horn is another cost reducer, and True Conviction is a powerful anthem due to the fact that most of your creatures are big and flying.

I have my own sliver deck

So I'll be making suggestions based on my experience with Sliver Overlord as commander.
There are 2 cards The First Sliver can take unfair advantage of. They are Hibernation Sliver and Aetherflux Reservoir . You will get a lot of free spells, especially if you have Morophon, the Boundless out. Mosswort Bridge works nice with your commander, too.
Just by looking at your deck, I get the idea that you want to get the most out of every cascade trigger. Almost every card that is less than 5 CC is a sliver, even if it's a bad sliver (several of the slivers with sacrifice abilities) or a changeling. While that does help the deck be more explosive, it really hurts its resiliency. If there's a boardwipe, or spot removal aimed at your commander, you will fall very far behind if you don't have the mana to recast your commander. That's why Crystalline Sliver is always the first thing I search for with Overlord.
I suggest a bit of a paradigm shift. I'd add more lower converted mana cost cards and some card advantage, that way you won't be blown out of the water with all-too-common boardwipes. When slivers are out, people tend to play those cards more often for some reason. I like Distant Melody , Chromatic Lantern , Aphetto Dredging , Living Death , Bring to Light , Opaline Sliver , and Sol Ring . Wheel of Fate works really well with your commander, as does Living End . It should be noted that if you don't want to cast the card you cascade into, you don't have to. If you choose to not cast it, it'll be shuffled back to the bottom of your deck to be cascaded into later instead. Also, Mirror Entity is killer with slivers.
Let me know what you think! I may change my deck to go with The First Sliver sometimes, so I'd appreciate if you have feedback I'm not aware of.

The Great Henge is awesome for Mayael. it immediately replaces its mana cost and gets card advantage with Mayael's ability. I also like Mosswort Bridge due to its ability to cast something big easily.

It has creatures, but it lacks a bit in equipment. It looks like you're on a budget, so here are some good options. Some equipments with ability soup are Sword of Vengeance , Whispersilk Cloak , Trailblazer's Boots , Prowler's Helm , and Quietus Spike . Some equipment with big boosts are Colossus Hammer , Stoneforge Masterwork , Blackblade Reforged , and Argentum Armor .
Heartseeker is brutal with Syr Gwyn.

Also, Single Combat is brutal. It gives you 2 turns to attack with very few creature to block. It doesn't even affect you much.

If anyone could steal emblems, it would be Nicol Bolas.

Cards to cut: Blessing of the Nephilim , Scourge of the Nobilis , Faith Unbroken , Eidolon of Countless Battles , Xenagos, God of Revels are all great cards, but not the best option for Uril. Uril already pumps himself, and protects himself, so the only thing he needs is evasion. Trample, protection, unblockable, flying, and anything similar. I do like Ancestral Mask and All That Glitters because they're cheap for what they do.
Suggestions: Unquestioned Authority , Sterling Grove , Sphere of Safety . Protection is very valuable. So is shroud for enchantments that doubles as a tutor. It's nice to have a pillow fort so you won't be attacked for having few creatures out, too.

Your link doesn't work, btw. You need to take the "s" out of the https. Here's a link anyway, though.

I'll take a look at your deck and leave some comments. I've always loved Uril.
