Yeah, Primal Surge has indeed been a flop once due to the instants and sorceries. Mayael the Anima and Gleam of Battle are definitely going to be on the chopping board as I don't attack with Ramos at all and as you say, Mayael hasn't got many targets. Kynaios and Tiro of Meletis has been surprisingly good as a peacekeeper, players are less likely to attack me when he's on the field as they enjoy his benefits. Conflux is so perfect, I'm not sure why I didn't consider it. I'll take the others into consideration, Kalonian Hydra works well for the deck because he can buff Ramos without having to attack. Thanks for the suggestions.

Death's Presence is good because you can dump counters onto Ramos or other creatures. Necropolis Regent gets out of hand fast, as does Kalonian Hydra. Drana, Liberator of Malakir is decent for buffing your army for only 3 mana. Chasm Skulker and Hangarback Walker are great ways to utilize those +1/+1 counters to make a big board state. In tandem with Vorel of the Hull Clade, you can run Gilder Bairn which can also double planeswalker loyalty if you need it. Casting Conflux while Ramos is in play tutors for a bunch of cards that you can then cast immediately, like Doubling Season for your green card and Tamiyo, Field Researcher for either your white or blue card.For cards to take out, Mayael the Anima is the first because have only 4 creatures that she can grab, which means she will miss a lot of her activations. Gleam of Battle and Forced Adaptation are very low impact cards. You run too many instant and sorcery cards for Primal Surge to be reliable and can often turn into paying 10 mana to get little to nothing for it. Kynaios and Tiro of Meletis don't even synergize with the deck other than giving Ramos 4 +1/+1 counters, which Saskia the Unyielding can do, and she can deliver some mean beats in this deck as well. Borborygmos, Tariel, Vorosh, and Oloro are all good cards to cut as well.

You should swap a few of your red lands for some more green.
Those Praeators are cool for flavor and all, they take away from your tribe synergy. You could run Conspiracy to make them Slivers.

@n0bunga: Yes, you've been, as you said "too busy with Kess" (not a very hard deck to build tbh) to look at Ramos, and yet, he's so powerful. If he's so powerful, why are you occupied with Kess 1 day after she was spoiled when Ramos was spoiled a month ago? Your lack of effort to pursue him proves my point that he's a question mark. While producing 10 mana is good, Conflux is a pretty bad win con since Ad Nauseam is the best engine in storm decks as they exist.
The thing about Ramos is: we already have access to so many rocks, that the mana advantage portion is kind of already solved. Ramos does little to actually help you gain card advantage, which is the part that's harder to surmount. I love that you think I'm unimaginative about his capacity. I think he's a good card, no doubt, but to jam him into Tier 1.5 completely untested makes no sense. Kess, on the other hand, makes more sense since you can take the preexisting Jeleva shell, jam her on top of it, and swap a few cards out (again, not sure how you've been so preoccupied brewing her; pretty simply), so she's already tested, more or less. Also, she is, in a lot of ways, an improvement on Dralnu, a deck that I recently brewed that has seen success in competitive metas. In essence, she should be good. Ramos, on the other hand, produces mana, which is an okay ability, but with no substance. I will not, however, continue to converse on this subject since you seem to question my intelligence in ad hominem fashion rather than address the points about which we've spoken. Good day.

So... I'm loving the new commanders spoiled so far as they offer a lot of varieties on what we can do with the tribes besides Combo-Scion. That said, Ur-Dragon gives you the discount, but you might consider Ramos over him. With Ramos you can cast Conflux, put 5 counters on him, tutor 5 cards, get 10 mana off his abilities to use the cards you tutored which will build up more counters for you to play more things next turn (or if you end up using Vedalken Orrery on every players turn).
Also, as shiny as your land base is, you might wanna consider at least 2-3 of each basic in the event you play against someone using Blood Moon or Back to Basics. It doesn't seem like it would happen often, but it's often enough. Plus, by adding in basics you can run things like Land Tax w/ Scroll Rack, Cultivate, and other low CMC cards that only grab basics.
Another side note, 38 creatures is pretty rough, especially with most being CMC 5 and higher. Most games you're gonna be hurting to do anything til roughly turns 6-8. Dragons are awesome, but the sky sovereigns deserve lackeys as well, so it wouldn't hurt to consider additional creatures to spawn the overlords faster like Dragonlord's Servant or Dragonspeaker Shaman. Also, mana rocks can be your friend, especially cards like Chromatic Lantern, the Signets, or (not a rock, but mana fixer) Prismatic Omen.
Regardless, I hope some of this was helpful and I can't wait to try out the new guys for myself being a huge lore junkie I'm very excited for the new decks. Good luck and +1 from me!

Aaj3327 Having Prismatic Omen does make the combo a little more viable. However, I don't think that the addition of The Chain Veil and Nissa, Worldwaker is justified as a defense for aggro decks. In case of an aggro meta the addition of more 1 for 1 removal is a better idea.

Used to run 5 colour super friends. I liked Conflux to tutor for my combo pieces. Would ult Tamiyo, Field Researcher, and conflux into Ajani, Mentor of Heroes, Ajani, Caller of the Pride, Sorin, Grim Nemesis, another card depending on the board state, and then another tutor to get my Akroma's Memorial. If doubling season is out, get 100 life, make over 400 tokens, all with vigilance, first strike, haste, flying... Fun times :D Of course you don't have to, just a fun idea

My take on Scion is similar. I have a cool combo with Conflux in there too.
