Ive heard ramos is best used as a storm commander, cast a ton of multicolor spells, then cast double the amount with double the mana
For storm, you're gonna need a LOT of instants, ramp, and "storm" spells
Storm/ multicolor spells
Also, charms are a great way to generate mana with ramos while having many modes for utility and building storm count
And many more..
Storm also needs a lot of tutors and recursion spells if you can afford them
But yea, from what I've heard and seen about ramos, you want to storm multicolor spells in order to cast more spells with the mana and using the insane ramp to win via stuff like Mind's Desire, Grapeshot, Brain Freeze and Tendrils of Agony after a huge storm count of multicolor spells

I run a Scion of the Ur-Dragon tribal deck, and I really like yours evolution of the deck using the Ur-Dragon himself. From my experience playing dragon tribal, I'd recommend Austere Command as a multi-purpose board wipe. Can hit small creatures while leaving your dragons unmolested, while also getting troublesome enchantments and/or artifacts in one card. Merciless Eviction is also a must run, I think for when you need to exile creatures, artifacts or planeswalkers. I'd also recommend a Boros Charm as either protection from board wipes or a surprise finisher by giving your commander double strike. I also like Heroic Intervention both as a response to a board wipe or as a way to make my boardwipes one-sided for only 1G.
I also agree with many of the earlier commentors. Swapping Temur Ascendancy for Elemental Bond is a good upgrade; you still get the draw when a creature enters, but it also gives all your creatures haste. Kolaghan, the Storm's Fury turns each attacking dragon into an anthem boost. I don't think I'd run city of brass though. The damage still applies even if you are using it with Chromatic Lantern or Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth. Reflecting Pool is a good substitute. I'd also consider Bojuka Bog to help with graveyards and Krosan Verge as ramp/color fixing. Regarding graveyard recursion, I like Whip of Erebos. Giving your creatures lifelink is a nice bonus, and throwing a huge dragon at your opponent with lifelink is even better.
I find my favorite targets for Scion of the Ur-Dragonare two dragons in your maybeboard - Hellkite Tyrant and Steel Hellkite . I'd want those three dragons main board. I've found Intet, the Dreamer and Deathbringer Regent to be underwhelming, so they may be good potential replacements. I also tend to favor the OG Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker over Nicol Bolas, God-Pharaoh.
Good luck with the deck!

I would replace any number of Guttersnipe / Firebrand Archer for 2-4 Harsh Mentor if ur on semi budget, if not i would go for Eidolon of the Great Revel. Also Goblin Guide is great but expensive.Searing Blaze and Shrine of Burning Rage is good. Soul-Scar Mage is great if you are looking to go more creature removal style. Shard Volley looks bad but is actually just a lightning bolt, because you can sacrifice a tapped land and that can be the last 3 damage you need to finish them off. Also Skullcrack is great against ur worst enemy, lifegain. Magma Jet is great because its 2 damage and lets you get rid of extra lands/spells you dont need. Searing Blood is just another Searing Blaze and is almost as good.
A much more powerful version of this deck can be achieved for not a lot more using white or black for Boros Charm and Lightning Helix and Deflecting Palm is good against almost all creature decks and lots of other decks because you can redirect spells like Lightning Bolt. it is amazing against Emrakul, the Aeons Torn because it does not target him. And if you play competitively you will know the deck Bogles and realize that it just beats them. it also beats the deck Death's Shadow.
Black is good for Bump in the Night
I would just cut back on Grim Lavamancer, to 1-3, Firebrand Archer to 0-2 Guttersnipe to 0-2, I like Young Pyromancer so that could stay but if ur looking for cuttables you can go to 2-3 Browbeat is not great and would go 1-2 tops, Arc Trail is just god awful, no offense, and I would cut to 0. Rift Bolt and Lava Spike are amazing and Sunscorched Desert is whatever but if you are going into a second color I would cut them down to 0-2. Lightning Bolt is a must have and

More cuts, you say?
I'm not wildly keen on the amount of point-removal you're currently running. It's a little meta-dependent, but you're already running 7 vampires that can deal with opposing creatures, making the 10 instants and sorceries feel a bit extra. I would keep the vampires, and then run only the strongest/most flavorful of the other 10. Keep New Blood, Anguished Unmaking, Utter End, and Urge to Feed; cut Terminate, Swords to Plowshares, Mortify, Feast of Blood, Crackling Doom, and Victim of Night. I'd also advocate adding in Vindicate. Really none of the current instants you run are bad per se (I mean, Swords to Plowshares is the best removal spell printed in Magic), but in the interest of making meaningful space, this is where I'd start. Hell, if you really think you need more spot-shot, you could add Vish Kal, Blood Arbiter, though I don't care for his services. Vein Drinker is a solid option, however.
You could still trim a Sorin, though he is pretty nifty. Solemn Visitor is my least favorite.
Blind Obedience and Stensia Masquerade are somewhat unneeded. The Masquerade does improve some if you add in Rix Maadi, Dungeon Palace (actually, I recommend running Rix Maadi regardless). The Dungeon Palace also enables you to trim Call the Bloodline if you wish.
You aren't running Cabal Coffers, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, or Black Market, so you only have Nirkana Revenant and Crypt of Agadeem to power up Exsanguinate. I think I'd cut it for a more impactful card.
On the topic of Nirkana Revenant, run more swamps! Yes, they're expensive, but you're going to have to track down two original duals (Scrubland and Badlands) and black fetches to make 3-color-Revenant functional. On the plus side, this would also enable Cabal Coffers, and the fetches synergize with Nocturnus. Bloodhusk Ritualist and Gatekeeper of Malakir will thank you likewise. Canyon Slough and Smoldering Marsh should at least replace some basic mountains.
Look at your color costs: You have only 10 red symbols, and 13 white. You don't need to run R/W dual lands (Sacred Foundry et al). You can get by with just black/x lands.
Blood Artist/Falkenrath Noble are better in Olivia Voldaren than Edgar. With Olivia, you want more sac-outlets to ditch borrowed creatures in the event of Olivia's downfall, so the drain effects are a little more consistently powerful. With Edgar at the helm, I think you'd want to add in Grave Pact and Dictate of Erebos to augment Butcher of Malakir and sacrifice effects such as Viscera Seer and Indulgent Aristocrat. Without all that, they just aren't reliable enough.
I strongly dislike Mathas, Fiend Seeker. Political play and Group Hug be damned- I want my opponents to suffer alongside me, not get free goodies.... bunch of filthy, free-loading, commie-hippies....
Herald’s Horn doesn't excite me unless you're at 50%+ creatures of the chosen tribe, which is a tall order for most tribes.
Teferi's Protection is sick, but Edgar puts out a lot of tokens, which feel bad with phasing. Not that it's a bad inclusion, but Angel's Grace might be more what you want if you really think you need a Ace of Saves (unlikely). Or if you're after the board protection, Boros Charm could be considered, though it won't help with Merciless Eviction and tuck sweeps.

Crackling Doom, Anguished Unmaking/Utter End/Vindicate, Swords to Plowshares/Path to Exile, Merciless Eviction, I'm a fan of Boros Charm personally, Terminate/Dreadbore. Of course you'll want to add the various guild signets that make up Mardu colors. Basically I see Mardu as Black filling in all of the major flaws of a Boros deck. Card draw, great removal, and a fair amount of flexibility in strategy. I'm a big fan of Queen Marchesa and while I don't know if she's staple level status as part of the 99 in Mardu decks, she'll definitely fit in your Mathas deck.

One was in an HOU draft where my friend built a mill deck with two Fraying Sanity, some Ipnu Rivulet and Seer of the Last Tomorrow, and 3 Compelling Argument. I was playing a white red exert deck with Hazoret the Fervent and Fling.
I think I've said enough.
The other was in a modern tourney at my LGS about a year ago. I was on Zoo and my opponent was on Mill. He was at 4, and I had Boros Charm in my hand.

Okay so second round of testing is officially complete and well, it didn't quite go as planned, sometimes it was my fault others it was pure bad luck, and sometimes it was just a bad matchup. Needless to say here is my full report.
- vs. Affinity 2-1
Game 1 affinity had to mull to 4 and never really did recover from that as affinity is one of those decks that just doesn't mulligan well. Game two an Etched Champion was able to beat down enough that a Blinkmoth Nexus equipped with a Cranial Plating could swing in for lethal. Game 3 was kinda crazy and one of the better games of magic I have probably ever played. I was on the play and dropped Champion of the Parish on turn one, a good start, affinity responded by playing Darksteel Citadel, Ornithopter, Memnite, Mox Opal, and Steel Overseer, with Arcbound Ravager in hand as I learned for turn two (literally an insane hand for affinity). I was ready to concede when I topdecked Card: stony silence turning off all of affinity's field and they were never able to remove the enchantment, I beat down until they were dead as they didn't draw into non-artifacts.
- vs. U/R Gifts Storm 0-2
Not much to say here, storm is good, in both games I was a turn away from swinging for lethal when storm combo'd off and killed me with Grapeshot, in hindsight I should have probably mulled until I got to removal to deal with Baral, Chief of Compliance, and then delayed them but I don't think it would have made too much of a difference, the deck is certainly fast enough to beat Storm before it combos off I just didn't get that opportunity.
- vs. U/W Control 0-2
Game one I lost to well timed removal, I played well enough around the counters but the removal was overwhelming and eventually became too much for me to recover. Game two opponent drew every Celestial Colonnade and beat down with those while also seeming to draw into every counter and removal spell (I had Cavern of Souls which helped but that didn't stop the removal), I didn't stand a chance as they just countered Eerie Interlude.
- vs. Burn 1-2
These games were close, game one we both got each other down pretty low, opponent topdecked a burn spell and was able to also drop Monastery Swiftspear I lost to the prowess. Game two I won thanks to the most unlikely source Blood Moon. I know it's weird, I had sided a couple in to turn off Lightning Helix and Boros Charm late game for my opponent, it ended up with them having only uncastables in hand and I won on Champion of the Parish beats, who would have thought Blood Moon would do so much work. Game three again was close I lost to a Shrine of Burning Rage having not expected to see it which was an oversight on my part.
- vs. G/R Vengevine 0-2
I was skeptical about the Vengevine deck, I thought maybe it was just a fluke, I was wrong the deck was insanely good, both games they dropped two Vengevine turn 2 and I had no answer, it wasn't close this deck was way too fast as I was always on the defensive and the pure volume of creatures it played meant my removal was useless, I have to test more against this deck with my other decks and yours and try to figure out a consistent way to beat it.
- vs. 42 Land Swan Hunt 0-2
Swan Hunt had near perfect hands both games, game one they were able to combo off turn 4 (the earliest they can) and won on the spot (I got them to 9 life this game so the deck did well just can't beat the combo once it is assembled). Game 2 was a bit upsetting, I had them at 1 life when they Treasure Hunted into a Swans of Bryn Argoll and combo'd off the next turn. This matchup is easily winnable but opponent just had a great hand and better luck.
The mana base still feels a bit clunky which hurt me in some games, I would cut the filter lands as good as they are as they can't be played turn one really and add some more plains as that would make Blood Moon less painful.
I also found myself mulliganing a lot, I think the deck needs another solid two-drop I'll look around on gatherer and see what I can find and then test it out. Overall the deck itself did fine I just punted a few too many times and got some bad hands.
