Sunburst (This enters the battlefield with a charge counter on it for each color of mana used to pay its cost.)
At the beginning of your upkeep, you may gain 1 life for each charge counter on Clearwater Goblet.
Clearwater Goblet Discussion

cstern2346 At the moment, the win cons are proliferating Darksteel Reactor for an overall win. Also, proliferating Armageddon Clock and running life gain artifacts, such as Eternity Vessel, Sun Droplet and/or Clearwater Goblet to keep my life from dropping too much. Also, I am using things like Time Bomb, Necrogen Censer, Magma Mine and Heliophial to deal damage directly to my opponent. Atraxa helps with dealing a lot of damage too, the first play test was a win due to Atraxa and Necrogen Censer hitting hard. But I will make some land cuts, maybe get some more tutoring, possibly a Planar Bridge. Actually, Coalition Relic works really nicely with Atraxa, producing 3 mana on my next precom phase. Tap it for a counter, if it wasn't needed, Atraxa proliferates that counter, then next turn, remove said counters and then tap it for mana, boom! Which would justify running a Planar Bridge.

legendofa I would take out Clearwater Goblet and City of Brass. There are better life gain alternatives (including your lifelink commander). At best goblet is 4 per turn and at worst, 1. Your mana is good enough that you don't need to shock yourself for one to get any color Transguild Promenade is a much better alternative.

Some cards I think that you could take out are the Modular and Sunburst cards that you have in the deck. Unless I'm missing a specific rule, I don't think that those cards will trigger Ramos, Dragon Engine since those cards don't change color based on the different types of mana spent to cast them. The ones like Arcbound Wanderer and Clearwater Goblet are still colorless and therefore wouldn't give Ramos any counters when cast.
Other than those, depending on what exactly you want to accomplish with the deck, you might want to consider taking out some of the cascade/storm cards. Captured Sunlight, Sprouting Vines, and Bituminous Blast are the ones that I would consider taking out first.
Overall this looks like a really fun deck to pilot! I hope these suggestions help.

If this is for multiplayer I'd personally suggest adding in a board wipe or two. Something like Duneblast, Global Ruin, or Dimensional Breach. There are tons of other options out there too. I'd also recommend Prismatic Omen and Zendikar Resurgent in a deck running WUBRG. If you're looking for easy, cheap life gain there's Clearwater Goblet.Another card I'd recommend for removal is Legacy Weapon. I just personally like running it in a five color deck.

The Sunburst Mechanic goes well with 5 color Decks too!

here are my suggestion :
Replace Telepathy For Archmage Ascension every draw transform into a tutor.
Opal Palace could be nice if you like commander damage.
Other sugggestion :
Gyre Sage instead of any mana rock
Bow of Nylea give +1/+1 counter or can recycle card in your graveyard is a good utility card.

There seems to be a critical lack of focus with your deck. On a few test hands I played, I either had a hand full of spells I couldn't cast or couldn't use, or I was flooded out with mana and nothing to spend it on. Here's just a few suggestions I came up with:
Darksteel Ingot is overcosted and not really worth playing unless you are playing Affinity, which you aren't.
Drop Door of Destinies. It doesn't work the way you think it does.
Prophetic Prism is a good mana filter, but you don't really need it with all the other ways you can generate colored mana. It's only useful as a cantrip.
Spidersilk Net Should really be more of a sideboard card. You are already running plenty of other removal options, so there's no need to get fancy with ways to block fliers. I guarantee you will never draw this card when you need it most.
Sunforger is a great card in a red/white Boros deck with a heavy focus on instant speed burn, but in your deck it can only tutor for exactly 4 cards and it costs 8 mana to do so. Consider just running more copies of dispatch and path to exile, rather than relying on sunforger as a tutor, which is only marginally better than something like Ghostfire Blade or Loxodon Warhammer considering your deck type and the converted mana cost. If you are dead set on keeping equipments in your deck, swap it for one of those instead.
You've got a lot of mana acceleration cards like Rampant Growth and Burnished Hart but nothing to really spend it on outside of Creepy Doll and Mage-Ring Responder. Mage-Ring Responder is a good bomb, but it requires you to pay for it every time you use it. Creepy Doll is okay, but a little overcosted for your deck and doesn't serve as a closer or a bomb to end the game.
Let move on to some positives:
Sol Ring is efficient mana generation and counts towards artifact counts for affinity/metalcraft. You don't really need colored mana in your deck for the most part except for when you need to cast an instant or sorcery or you are casting Skyreach Manta or another card with the sunburst mechanic.
Reclusive Artificer is a smart addition for an obviously artifact-dense deck, but you only have a single copy in a 60 card deck. It could potentially be your closer if it did damage to players, but unfortunately it doesn't.
In summary, I would suggest you tighten up your strategy a little bit. Figure out which one of these cards is the strongest - the one that wins you the game most often.
Is it Skyreach Manta? Consider adding more 5-color friendly cards and going for a full sunburst strategy. A good start would be Etched Oracle (one of the best sunburst cards ever printed), Energy Chamber, Clearwater Goblet, or Emblazoned Golem for starters. If you go that route, Alloy Myr and the other artifact mana dorks from Mirrodin will be your best friends.
Is it Mage-Ring Responder or Rusted Relic? Find ways to ramp up your mana production and get them out faster. a 7/7 that can deal 7 damage to a creature on turn 4 is very likely to win you the game if you can consistently pull it off. Try cheating massive artifact creature and other bombs into the field with Tinker, Polymorph, or just outpace your opponent with mana dorks and insane ramp.
Your deck has the trappings of a metalcraft deck, a sunburst deck, and a combo deck with Creepy Doll, you just need to figure out what you want it to be and define your win condition more clearly. Look up a sunburst or metalcraft primer and take some notes on what cards appear frequently, or copy their decklists and use them as a springboard or inspiration for your own unique take on the deck archetype.
