I'm not going to pretend to understand a damn thing about Norse Mythology, because well.. I don't.

I've always believed we were Sliske's only true foil. Without us around, he was free to do as he wished, nobody has ever stood up to him like we have. That being said though, I hope he doesn't die.

This is my personal speculation:

Sliske might either give the stone of Jas to the winner of the contest, or use the stone of jas to kill the winner. When he gives the stone of Jas, you must notice that during that time a sun eclipse is taking place, meaning that whole Gielinor will be shadowed by the moon. Sliskes main power is the power of the shadow realm, and betrayal. I think at least one god will meet the void.
I find your theory sound and very logical, where Sliske's mindset is concerned; however, couple things here.

Firstly, Kindred Spirits. Until we learn otherwise, I'm going to assume we smashed that Shadow Focus to bits, and that it probably had something to do with his mastery of shadows. If anything, this will be the main consequence of our actions during Kindred Spirits brought to bear. I get the feeling this will be how we screwed up Sliske's plans the most in the end, and he may not even realize it.

Secondly, Sliske is indeed a master of the Shadow Realm, second only to one.. and that one happens to be on our side - Zaros. If Sliske tried something in the Shadow Realm that Zaros didn't like, I don't doubt that Zaros would be more than capable of putting a stop to it.

Sixth Elder seems most likely, but meh... too obvious imo.
Only to the dedicated lore people.

Vorago is a boss first, a piece of lore second. Besides, Sliske's tournament has caused more destruction to the anima than anything since Zamorak made the Stone go boom. It's probably not Vorago.
Zamorak would be.. stupid. Not to mention, y'know, DaT.
Zaros would be even stupider, since we JUST got down with Zaros excommunicating him, and Sliske beating the piss out of us after that (defying Zaros's 'protection' of us).
Viggora.. Viggora.. I mean seriously? Why the hell would Sliske even.. No. I don't see how anything aside from "he's in the Shadow Realm, and he's touched the Staff" gives people even an inkling that it's gonna be him.
A Dragonkin wouldn't let Sliske hold the Stone, nor act so patiently with him. None of them trust him, anyway.
Personally, 6th Elder is my theory, as boring an answer as it is.

Also yes, as Hguoh said, 'them' could have many meanings. It could refer to the gods, it could refer to a certain group of gods, it could refer to a single god, a follower of a god, a bystander of note, one of the other participants (Vorago, possibly Death)...

Scary thought, but it COULD also potentially refer to the World Guardian.

Calling it now, Sliske has always been nomads master. Viggora works with or for Sliske. Viggora is the mysterious voice.
that'd be about as good a story as the evil chicken being sliske's master
I think the Evil Chicken would make a more credible master for Sliske than Viggora, tbh.

I never said the voice was his master. Idk why everyone assumes it's his master


It's because Sliske says, 'Yes, of course. I live to serve,' at the very end of the cutscene.

Personally, I think Sliske is slightly taunting the voice, and is not actually subserviant to it.
Except in the Lore Corner at Runefest, Raven specifically referred to the Voice when talking about Sliske's master.
