I would replace Darigaaz's Charm with Jund Charm since the mods of exile a graveyard and 2 damage to everything are simply better. I am thinking Star of Extinction should become Abzan Charm since removal and card draw are also good.

Jund Charm, and Abzan Charm can both activate Ramos instantly. Additionally one can exile a graveyard, and the other draws cards.

You may want to consider Door to Nothingness, Legacy Weapon, and Fist of Suns.

usaDiabetic on ramos good stuff

Taking a quick look, I have a few suggestions.

Abzan Charm can get Ramos 5 counters in one shot.

Deadeye Navigator can blink Ramos, so you can use his ability more than once a turn.

Bioshift can move counters over to Ramos and counts as 2 colors of mana.(really a lot of hybrid mana cost cards are good for Ramos)

Legacy Weapon can end up being free removal.

Corpsejack Menace for counter boosting. You can do the same with Winding Constrictor.

Maybe Progenitus.

Also, Villainous Wealth , just for fun.

Really cool list! Building a very similar list myself, but with Maze's End as an alt-wincon since I don't have any shocklands to spare. Here are my suggestions given my limited playtesting:

Bloom Tender, while a little expensive, is absolutely incredible in 5-color EDH. Taps for 3-5 colors of mana at a time in my experience.

Rashmi, Eternities Crafter technically doesn't give your first spell each turn cascade, but is close enough to make it worth it. At worst, you draw an extra card each turn if you're playing stuff at instant-speed.

How often are you able to cascade? Only five cards in your deck actually have or grant the ability. I'd add a few more spells just to let it happen more often. The ones that work best for me that I'd recommend are Bloodbraid Elf, Bituminous Blast, and Deny Reality.

I'd also stock up on more charms, especially the tricolored ones. With cascade, you never know what you're going to hit, so having lots of flexibility is really helpful. The consistently useful ones I'd say are Abzan Charm, Esper Charm, Naya Charm, and Sultai Charm.

If you've got any recommendations for me, my decklist is here: Taste the Rainbow, M'Fer - Ramos Cascade EDH

Abzan Charm can put 5 counters on Ramos at instant speed.

Legacy Weapon for removal.(I know I just suggested an artifact, but you might want to bring your colorless spell count down)

Deadeye Navigator so you can use Ramos multiple times a turn.

Maybe Bioshift to move counters on to Ramos, really any and all hybrid mana cards are good, as they count as 2 colors.

Ohthenoises could it be any charm? In the deck, I would play either Jund Charm -> Ritual for 10, Jeskai Charm -> kill everyone, Esper Charm -> draw deck and win, Darigaaz's Charm -> kill everyone and win, Abzan Charm -> Ritual for 10

I mean, they are the best charms for the deck, and would loop with Reborn Hope, and some would even let you win on the spot. I would even think about cutting the ones that can't win, reducing the amount of dead cards in the deck.

Hey, Fist of Suns is kinda busted with Ramos's mana ability because it lets you cast any two cards in your hand no matter their casting cost from one activation which in return has potential to put tons more counters on Ramos to be use the next turn. Fist is also a may which makes it better with cards that cost less than five mana.

Consider more early ramp to get Ramos into play faster? Birds of Paradise, Sylvan Caryatid more Signets? These mana dorks can make any color of mana which is helpful to be able to play your many colored casting cost cards without Ramos's mana ability.

My suggestions of adding additional ramp is to give you a better chance of casting Ramos early while also letting you cast another spell the same turn you cast him. Ramos gives you no value the turn he's cast he requires other cards to be cast to get counters on him. More ramp helps with this.

My last suggestions are Charms. Charms are pretty good with Ramos because they put up to three counters on him without even using a mode. They give you a lot of options when Ramos isn't in play. Abzan Charm and Jund Charm both have a mode to put counters on a creature and both alone can put up to five counters on Ramos.

Good luck with your deck.
