Mmmm okay quite positive about the Silverquill deck:
Cunning Rhetoric: Fun and nicely costed. Thantis, the Warweaver approves.
Bold Plagiarist: Unfortunately, it's not whenever anyone puts counters on an opponent's creature, so some symmetrical cards like Evolutionary Escalation won't work since you're the one putting down all the counters. There's a handful that seems to fit the bill tho: Shadrix Silverquill , Orzhov Advokist , Regna's Sanction , Tempt with Glory (why is this a six-drop?) and Agitator Ant . (Also Oversimplify , but I don't think there's a way for Bold Plagiarist to see the Fractals getting their counters.) I kinda wish it was an Aura or auto-attaching Equipment.
Author of Shadows: Graveyard hate is nice and all but one measly card for MV 5? Would have been cool if you got something from each opponent.
Promise of Loyalty: Mm-hm, it's nice that they're working on white wraths. Great for and against Voltron decks.
Combat Calligrapher: White flying token gifter that also makes evasive tokens for yourself? My Marisi deck welcomes it with open arms.
Tempting Contract: This can certainly get out of hand, but for something that's basically a tapped MV 4 mana rock I wish it made you one Treasure guaranteed per trigger, like the Tempting Offer spells it's based on.
Nils, Discipline Enforcer: While far from competitive, here's a fun commander for some of those abovementioned counter-giving cards
Fain, the Broker: As mentioned by Muddstah, a Trading Post in the command zone is pretty neat, and none of the "conversion" abilities cost any mana! That untapping will probably be used for some nonsense or other
Felisa, Fang of Silverquill: Kinda funny that enemy Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons and The Scorpion God players can end up making tokens for you. Black Sun's Zenith can make a Martial Coup impression here. Are there any old creatures in orzhov that makes large amounts of weird counters for itself?

As a general rule, setting a price for the deck is much more helpful than setting a price per card. Becuase if a really strong card which would help your deck out immensly is $15 then you can pair it with a 50c card compared to 2x $7.50 cards which are so-so. Just food for thought.
As for suggestions, you need more ramp and draw card in general. Especialy since you don't currently have much draw card effects, I would be favouring land ramp over mana dorks. Between Rampant Growth , Three Visits , Nature's Lore , Farseek , Sakura-Tribe Elder , Cultivate , Kodama's Reach , Skyshroud Claim , Explosive Vegetation , Circuitous Route , etc. there are a lot of good, relatively cheap options (that are good cards to have in your collection).

Drop Faerie Tauntings , Ashiok, Nightmare Muse , Traumatize , Trepanation Blade , add about one or two more ramp and two more card-draw at least. I almost always run 8 pieces of ramp and the prevailing wisdom is 10. Same for card-draw: I aim for 8, many aim for 10. Extra ramp is great with Oona's ability and card-draw can draw you into lands and just generally smooth everything out.
Reconnaissance Mission would be good. Treasure Cruise is often almost an Ancestral Recall and is budget too. Even though you're running Blue , Read the Bones is a great rate, as is Night's Whisper . Divination , Concentrate , and Tidings are all great on a budget, if a bit unexciting.
I love Keep Watch , Borrowing 100,000 Arrows , Theft of Dreams , Insight , Windfall , Plea for Power , Curse of Verbosity , and Manifold Insights but they are swingy. High ceilings, low floors. The mana cost on them is what makes them so good.
Midnight Clock is budget right now but it's starting to make waves. Get yours now while they're cheap. Ramp AND draw! Great on a budget.
Secrets of the Golden City and Kumena's Awakening should usually be City's Blessing-ed. I like Kimena's a lot on a budget (along with Patient Rebuilding ). Rush of Knowledge is decent if you have Oona out. Fathom Trawl is a guaranteed three non-lands, though it might be a bit lackluster with so many faeries. Not a bad card though. Mind Spring is great with ramp.
Drawn from Dreams and Dig Through Time are probably better than Diabolic Tutor until you have a game-winning card in the deck like Coat of Arms or some combo pieces (of which all are out-of-budget). I'd say drop Diabolic Tutor . Diabolic Vision is all right on a budget, as is Pilfered Plans , Forbidden Alchemy , and Notion Rain . We can probably do better, even on a tight budget.
With all your fliers, Rogue's Gloves and Mask of Memory are fantastic card-draw cards. Mask of Riddles is cute. Curiosity and Curious Obsession are decent but dangerous. Chart a Course is decent with fliers. Whispering Madness can be good with fliers too.
I have mixed feelings about Opt , Serum Visions , Sleight of Hand , Ponder , Preordain , Portent . They certainly don't hurt but they're bad late-game. I run them in some decks. Consider them if most of your card-draw is expensive. Brainstorm is a bit of a trap unless you have ways to shuffle your library and get rig of unwanted cards. This usually requires fetch lands like Polluted Delta and is better in 60-card formats.
Rain of Revelation , Archmage's Charm , Fact or Fiction , Succumb to Temptation , Precognitive Perception , Frantic Search , Pull from Tomorrow , Gush , Village Rites are all good for being instants so you can leave counterspells up and if you don't need them you can draw. That's one of the reasons a card like Anticipate looks weak but is nice for keeping counterspells open. Fact or Fiction is particularly good and is considered a staple in many formats, including EDH.
I would swap out Dimir Locket and Dimir Cluestone for Mind Stone and Prismatic Lens . Maybe Star Compass if it is in budget. I know you need your colors but 3-mana mana rocks that don't have huge upside are sooooo slow. Arcane Signet is probably out of budget, which is too bad. Is Wayfarer's Bauble still expensive? Probably. Worn Powerstone and Hedron Archive maybe? Oona isn't cheap and you want mana for her ability if push comes to shove. Trinket Mage is ramp because it can snag Sol Ring , making it the same rate as Explosive Vegetation and Hedron Archive .

I noticed you had Prophet of Kruphix in your future section. Unfortunately, that card is banned in commander. Of course, if you are playing with friends in your own play group, you don't have to mind the ban list lol. If you want another big flashy fish boi, Pearl Lake Ancient is a pretty good one. Also, I feel like a deck like this could use more ramp, such as Explore or Explosive Vegetation or anything you prefer. Finally, some more all around great cards in green are Genesis Wave , Primal Command and Lurking Predators as well as Finale of Devastation , and The Great Henge if you aren't too concerned about a budget.
