Hey there! Voltron is indeed a load of fun (check out my Voltron deck, yes shameless plugs), and I may just have some suggestions for you that I have found in my Voltron journey!
Aqueous Form , Artful Dodge , Distortion Strike , Invisibility , and Thassa, God of the Sea . I see you already have Aether Tunnel, so if that's been working for you, you might like these too! They work very well for me quite often, especially the re-castable ones.
Temporal Mastery , it works really well with mystical tutor which you have in the deck.
- Esior, Wardwing Familiar is really good since now any spell costs FIVE cmc, making it really hard to target him.
- Pemmin's Aura : Well it does a lot- it's pretty self-explanatory
- Kaho, Minamo Historian since you run a lot of instants this could be good especially if you use some unblockable spells from above
- Rapid Hybridization / Pongify Cheap blue removal
- Vanishing Lets you phase him out at the end of every turn at instant speed
- Ancient Tomb Great colorless land
- Sapphire Medallion Easy cost reduction

As far as counterspells go, there are a bunch of better ones than the ones you are playing. Counterspell is better than Cancel I would reccomend not playing any 'soft' counterspells above 2 mana, so somthing like Dissolve or Dream Fracture would be better.
Reach Through Mists is also underwhelming, maybe try Deep Analysis or Serum Visions. Skyblinder Staff or Whispersilk Cloak seem a bit better than Invisibility, but if you like it Cloak of Mists does a slightly better job.

Things to consider replacing with the items on the Maybe Board: 2 lands Traveler's Amulet Empress Galina and Leyline of Singularity Invisibility Portcullis, as this usually does more harm than good anyway Pacifism Braingeyser

Some suggestions to consider: take out Manalith, Opaline Unicorn, Embodiment of Spring, and Gruul Keyrune, replace with Gruul Signet, Simic Signet, and Izzet Signet, and Sol Ring. For flying, Wonder provides a similar effect to Archetype of Imagination, and is a little harder to deal with. You will want to add more lands to this deck in order to cast your big creatures on time. I would say 35-38 lands, and cut some of your sorceries for ramp spells like Rampant Growth, Farseek,Cultivate, Kodama's Reach, Explosive Vegetation, or Skyshroud Claim. Thassa, God of the Sea is a more reliable way to make creatures unblockable than Invisibility or Way of the Thief. I always include a copy of Decimate in any deck that can play it. The same goes for Cyclonic Rift and Chaos Warp. Lastly, a few creatures that you could upgrade your deck with: Sakura-Tribe Elder, Joraga Treespeaker, Sylvan Caryatid, Courser of Kruphix, Genesis, Avenger of Zendikar, Prime Speaker Zegana, and Progenitor Mimic.

I like this. Consuming Aberration plus a loaded up Isochron Scepter or two make a wicked combo against aggro decks with low land counts. If you found room for Flight or Invisibility, the Consuming Aberration will be evasive on top of growing into a huge beatstick. Cards like Drain Life can help buy you extra turns against aggro while you're getting set up.

Thanks Cajek. I imagine if you get an Aberration down and start swinging a Scepter or two, things would swing your way quickly. Wicked combo against aggro decks with low land counts. And if you found room for Flight or Invisibility, the Aberration will be a huge evasive beatstick. Cards like Drain Life abound in black and can buy you those extra turns against aggro to get set up and outclass them.
I've not finished my ideas for the Sideboard yet, but the 3 cards identified so far (Blood Moon, Elixir of Immortality, and Shattering Blow) would be pretty helpful in this matchup. I've given no thought yet on what they would swap in for, though.

Not bad! May want to change to EDH type and you have to add your landbase. I'd suggest 36 lands, so you'll need to cut a few others.
3 or less CMC value cards to consider ( not auto-includes, just value to consider )
Blessing of Leeches lose 1 life on your upkeep, unlimited regenerate creature. Too powerful not to include.
Asha's Favor Vigilance, First Strike
Aspect of Gorgon +1/+3 and Deathtouch
Cartouche of Ambition Lifelink and a -1/-1 counter on a creature of your choice.
Awesome Presence Offensive version of Propaganda.
Cho-Manno's Blessing Protection from colour of choice. Good for preventing damage and becoming unblockable.
Chromatic Armor Protection from colours of choice on the fly for mana.
Cloak of Mists Unblockable
Crab Umbra Pay 3 mana to untap Zur and it has totem armor.
Curiosity Draw cards when Zur deals any damage.
Daily Regimen 2 mana to put a permanent +1/+1 counter on creature as many times as you want.
Daybreak Coronet Bit more expensive, but 2 mana, +3/+3 first strike, vigilance and lifelink.
False Demise Cheat death once.
Glistening Oil infect for 2 mana.
Infinite Authority punishes opponents and rewards you with +1/+1 counters if they attack or block you.
Kithkin Armor 1 mana unblockable by power 3 or greater and sac the aura for prevention of damage to zur from one source
Pemmin's Aura On demand 1 mana shroud for turn and 1 mana to untap zur
Pretender's Claim tap down all lands defending player controlls
Sadistic Glee +1/+1 counter every time any creature dies.
Shade's Form Pay 1 black as many times as you want to give creature +1/+1 until end of turn and when creature dies, return it to the battlefield under your control.
Skeletal Grimace +1/+1 and pay 1 black to regenerate this creature.
Sleeper's Robe Fear and draw a card when you deal combat damage
Strange Augmentation +1/+1 base, potentially +3/+3 for one mana if you have a few different types of cards in your graveyard.
Sultai Runemark +2/+2 deathtouch
Traveler's Cloak Draw a card and Zur gets landwalk for a land type of your choice.
Triclopean Sight Untaps Zur, gives him +1/+1 and vigilance.
Unholy Strength 1 mana +2/+1
auto-includes:Pariah Save's your ass. Pair with indestructability to ignore damage.
Auramancer's Guise +2/+2 for each enchantment. Very overpowered.
Entangler Zur can block all the creatures.
Righteous Authority Esper has +1/+1 buff problems. This will buff Zur significantly and give you additional card draw. With blue and black in your arsenal, card draw shouldn't be a problem.
Sage's Reverie Big +1/+1 buff and big card draw. Play late to mid game to turn Zur from a wimp into one shot killer.
