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

ChubyCryBaby Sry no. The Cascade on Bloodbraid Elf hits a random card with is not what i want to cascade into. I run no cards with a CMC of 2 or less to always hit Living End with my cascade cards. Elf is a good card but not here. I could also run Ardent Plea or Shardless Agent but think the 2 we run are enough.

Hey, you asked for my advice. Consider narrowing down to a couple of strategies and cutting the rest? An important question is, how is the deck going to function if you don't have Ramos in play? Don't count on having his mana at all times. I would start by cutting a lot of the good stuff bombs and additional combats; you don't need these cards. They may be fun, nice to envision casting them with Ramos's mana, but they aren't practical. I would also cut the wheels or consider adding some options which can take advantage of getting cards out of the graveyard.

My suggestions are:

Other than Progenitus my suggestions will decrease the avg. CMC of this deck and allow you to focus on the more important cards rather than playing so many high casting cost cards which will be a hindrance much more than a strength in games where you don't have Ramos in play.

Playing tutors is better than playing so many good stuff bombs. It's better to play only a few good stuff bombs and then use the tutors to tutor for them directly when you want them. Tutors can help at all times in a game. In the early game to get cards that can help to cast Ramos and power him up and then later to find the bombs you want to use Ramo's mana with.

Charms are very good with Ramos, but more importantly they're good when Ramos isn't in play because they give so many options. They're also excellent with cascade.

Prismatic and Joiner are additional Chromatic Lantern effects. This effect is very important for the deck to function without Ramos's mana.

Kess is amazing with tutors and charms being able to cast them a second time from the graveyard.

Good luck with your deck.

How about 1-2 Bloodbraid Elf instead? Email me at taptrade.miraclehat@gmail.com

The major question is why Huntmaster/Arlinn and not Bloodbraid Elf, especially given how Arlinn is generally pretty weak?
