so, I'm not really sure what this format is but a few cards that can be considered are Fatal Push, Swords to Plowshares, Path to Exile, Delay, Counterspell, Serum Visions, Preordain, and Brainstorm. These are all generically good cards and should help you do your game plan with ease.

Ah okay, I assumed the maybeboard were cards you were only looking at, my bad!
In that case you have a bunch of stuff that definitely could fit in the deck. For those three you mentioned Exploration is very good and can be slotted in over Rampant Growth, Canopy Vista/Smoldering Marsh can just be replaced by a Forest/Mountain, and definitely take a Sol Ring if you have a spare one.
As for others, here's the most notable you have on your maybeboard:
- Asceticism - If it resolves your dragons are almost invulnerable outside of stuff like deathtouch/boardwipes
- Smothering Tithe - Could help with ramp
- Dragonlord Ojutai - Great card advantage with hexproof half of the time
- Glorybringer - Might not be as strong as some other options but that exert can effectively be a removal spell every other turn
- Nicol Bolas, the Ravager Flip - Great value all around and if you manage to transform him you basically win
- Rishkar's Expertise - Pricy but casting it will probably mean refilling your hand and getting a free dragon which covers its cost
- Cyclonic Rift - EDH staple and one of the best boardwipes in the format, wipes all of your opponents' creatures, artifacts, walkers, etc
- Force of Vigor - Pretty good removal that can be manaless
- Teferi's Protection - Protects your entire side from boardwipes
For boardwipes you already have Crux of Fate and Balefire Dragon. Throwing in Cyclonic Rift would definitely be a good choice. The issue with boardwipes in decks like these is that you don't want to reset your own boardstate, but that's why the three I mentioned are so good because they only affect the opponents. Cyclonic Rift also dodges indestructable as it's a bounce effect rather than a destroy.
In my opinion, counters are generally not very effective in decks like these. It's generally more effective to run cards like Rhythm of the Wild and Asceticism as they're not one-shots, while also having the side-benefit of opponents using their counters on your other opponents instead. If you wanted to pick up additional effects like those if counters/removal are rampant in your group, I personally like Steely Resolve and Conqueror's Flail.
If you want more spot removal, I definitely recommend picking up a Path to Exile. With it, Swords to Plowshares, and Anguished Unmaking you should be good for spot removal unless you wanted to splurge on an Assassin's Trophy.
I'm unsure about Ramos, Dragon Engine. Since you're in a more casual environment they might be okay, but unless you have something like Descendants' Path down they're not really worthwhile. If you're wanting to go out and buy a fairly expensive creature, by far the best purchase you could make is Kaalia of the Vast IMO.

Hiya! A few suggestions.
First off, your land count. You have an 8-cmc card, a 7-cmc card, plenty at 6-cmc, etc. If you want to keep that, you need more than the 34 lands you play. I recommend adding in two more lands.
Next is a few cards that I don't think should be in the deck. First off, Mind's Eye. You have access to early, reliable card draw in your command zone (Akiri even protects herself!) so you don't need to play bad card draw options like Mind's Eye. Mind's Eye works really well in ramp decks, this deck is not one of those. Next is Cathars' Crusade. This card synergizes really well with decks that pump out a ton of creatures (typically tokens). This deck is not one of those, so I suggest cutting it. Finally there is Open the Vaults. The amount of games that this is going to be really good is going to be less than the amount of games that this does nothing (or even helps your opponents more!).
Now for cards I recommend. For creatures we have Fervent Champion (another free equip creature) and Danitha Capashen, Paragon (makes equipment cheaper to cast!). Next we have some incredible pieces of removal in Path to Exile (just got reprinted so it's cheap!) and Winds of Abandon (hits one thing when you need it to, one-sided board wipe when you need it to be). Lastly, I recommend some more (and better) board wipes. Blasphemous Act, Wrath of God, Day of Judgment are all better than Rolling Earthquake and Akiri can even turn these board wipes into one-sided board wipes using her ability to give indestructible.
Other than these, I think you've got solid equipment, I think you got sooooolid interaction, and I think you've got some pretty threatening creatures.

Hiya! A few notable exclusions I see. Fervent Champion and Kazuul's Toll Collector are both excellent holders of equipment.\ Dowsing Dagger Flip and Mask of Memory are both equipment that provide a lot of value when held. Sunforger is arguably the best Boros card in EDH. It is a must as it provides a tutor-able piece of equipment that can get you to answers. Speaking of tutors, Open the Armory is still cheap. Steelshaper's Gift has unfortunately gotten more expensive but is the best equipment tutor. Next is removal. Akiri synergizes with white's wrath effects really well since she can make those board wipes one-sided. I suggest running those Wrath of God and Day of Judgment effects. Additionally, Winds of Abandon is a recent piece of white removal printed that I find to be as much of an auto-include in white decks as Swords to Plowshares and Path to Exile. Finally, if you've been liking Flawless Maneuver then I highly suggest Deflecting Swat. This card is amazing and is excellent when your general only costs 3 mana.

I would suggest playing something like Chimeric Mass instead of Mutavault because if you have to sacrifice mutavault because of Smallpox then you might be putting yourself in a position to be unable to win the game.
What happens if your opponent uses Path to Exile or Surgical Extraction on Nether Spirit? You basically just have Liliana, the Last Hope ultimate and The Rack as the only ways to win. I wouldn't say you really want to be betting on your opponent having no way to deal with that.
Finally, I would suggest at least considering Tectonic Edge. You're running 4 Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth so tectonic edge is basically just going to be another swamp most of the time and it is better than Field of Ruin if the opponent has 4 or more lands. It also has good synergy with Inquisition of Kozilek.

Hey RipGut-Gway, your deck looks interesting, back in the day I had a sliver deck and it was a lot of fun. I second Balaam__. I think the deck is strong fundamentally but needs more removal/opponent interaction. Since you are white dominant, I suggest a full set of Path to Exile instead of Adaptive Automaton, which seems like overkill in this build, or instead of a few white protection spells. Plus I think your sideboard could use some artifact/enchantment hate Disenchant or Revoke Existence, some way to deal with graveyard decks (Rest in Peace, Surgical Extraction), some way to deal with Tron/Ramp/Storm (Damping Sphere), and maybe even defense against burn/discard (Leyline of Sanctity). Another option is Aether Vial to pump out free slivers by turn 2.
