because we the question we are dealing with is our experience of God in THIS universe.

No you're missing the point. In terms of Davies argument, the 'advanced being' has moved beyond universes and exists at the level of the substrata of the multiverse iteself. What Michio Kaku would refer to as a 'level 4' civilisation. 'Q' in Star Trek is a hypothetical level 4 being.

If anything, a multiverse makes a God less likely, because it means that 'creation' was not a special event

But here we run into a problem. Our universe may have had a beginning, but most cosmologists ( including Krauss, from what I can recall ) support the theory of 'eternal inflation'......that the substrata of the multiverse has always existed. So there was no 'creation'......just a local patch of expansion.
