I am partial to Ramos, Dragon Engine. I feel the red is a necessary, if splashy inclusion for planeswalkers such as Ral Zarek, Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker, and Nicol Bolas, God-Pharaoh. Conflux is also a great card to have to seek out nearly all your combo pieces at the very end.

You have Nissa Revane and not Nissa's Chosen? You should have 4 of him if you have Nissa Revane. Here is another dump of cards that are cool too. Necromaster Dragon, Taigam, Ojutai Master, Catacomb Dragon, Gisela, Blade of Goldnight, Siege Dragon, Rith, the Awakener, Crosis, the Purger, Utvara Hellkite (He is one of my favorites!), Mana-Charged Dragon, Vampiric Dragon, Death by Dragons, Dragonmaster Outcast, Knight of New Alara, Conflux, Kilnmouth Dragon (Drop him first and then you have never ending burn spells), Two-Headed Dragon, Flameblast Dragon. I have time on the bus ride home by the way. lol

I 100% agree on run any 5 color spell that can be cast with Ramos and the tribal synergy of The Ur-Dragon is real.
I also don't disagree with Taigam, Ojutai Master (had to be sure it wasn't Taigam, Sidisi's Hand lol) for two reasons. Protecting the spells that win you the game are the most important so while Surrak Dragonclaw protects Progenitus: Taigam, Ojutai Master protects Ramos, Dragon Engine and Conflux. So really which ever is more important to winning creatures or instants/sorceries.
-The second good thing about Taigam is the same reason I suggesed Yidris: free spells are cool!

My picks for Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder and Demand slots would be: Archangel of Thune, Reyhan, Last of the Abzan, and/or Praetor's Counsel. I will elaborate why Yidris deserves in an these cards may not.
I believe you may be looking at Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder in a slightly narrow sense (but I do want you to keep Zur). You are right your ogre may not consistently fulfil the role of cascade enabler. You may want to first and foremost think of him as a more threatening Chromanticore. Obviously he is only four color, but that is the majority of the need and can be supplemented with anything in your deck. The other reason to do this is when Yidris and Ramos are on the field together: your opponents only have limited removal and both of these creatures deserve it. This is a four mana insurance policy for Ramos since most players fear Yidris' utility.
Since you aren't running Spike Feeder + Archangel of Thune the angel doesn't do enough. Any amount of life nets 1 counter for Ramos. Additionally this is a 5 mana creature with ONE COLOR and TWO DEVOTION to that one color. I believe you have good fixing but still this asks a lot and offers little.
I do like Reyhan, Last of the Abzan and I get she can activate Ramos. The thing is will she? She is one of the few creatures who have their own +1/+1 counters, and yes she allows for donations to the Counters for Ramos charity. However this only happens upon death: since you have no sac outlets in this deck I have no idea how you will kill her (unless you Terminate her). Competent opponents will see Ramos with two counters and take 3 (Reyhan) damage every combat. Only exiles and board wipes will be used on Reyhan. As far as getting counters from Ramos: your opponents will hold removal for big Birds of Paradise or Zur the Enchanter.
With Praetor's Counsel, this is just a win more card. I also want to cast Conflux twice and do more cool stuff, but unless you have been milled or wheeled the cards in your bin should have led to your wincons not a Praetor's Counsel. This is a card for graveyard decks (and there is no shame in not using the graveyard). Also this is one of the cards whose devotion is too high for Ramos, that is what I think makes this card a drop.

If you ran Deepglow Skate, you could add more planeswalkers to the deck to allow them to activate the ults immediately. Alchemist's Refuge and Leyline of Anticipation giving you flash is good to use Ramos on other player's turns, plus they go well with Seedborn Muse if you have it. Flameshadow Conjuring, Deadeye Navigator, Eerie Interlude, Faith's Reward, Progenitor Mimic, Stolen Identity, Rite of Replication, and Clone Legion allow you to abuse more ETB effects. Craterhoof Behemoth, Venser, Shaper Savant, Gonti, Lord of Luxury, Zealous Conscripts, Acidic Slime, Chancellor of the Forge, Chancellor of the Spires, Sepulchral Primordial, Luminate Primordial, Duplicant, Dragonlord Silumgar, Sower of Temptation, Hornet Queen, Deranged Hermit, Myr Battlesphere, Angel of Invention, Cultivator of Blades, have great ETB effects to be abused. Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Cytoplast Manipulator work really well with the Marchesa, the Black Rose you're running. Necropolis Regent, Master Biomancer, Reyhan, Last of the Abzan, Death's Presence, Experiment Kraj, and Verdurous Gearhulk are great for building up creatures with lots of +1/+1 counters. Greater Good, Prime Speaker Zegana, and Tishana, Voice of Thunder are great card draw sources for this deck. If you reanimate creatures from the graveyard often enough, Flayer of the Hatebound is strong in that department, and if you're looking for more big damage/lifeloss effects, Warstorm Surge, Stalking Vengeance, Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord, and Pathbreaker Ibex are good as wel. Conflux is really strong with Ramos in play, especially with Sakashima the Impostor copying him. If don't mind it being janky, you can copy your Panharmonicon by turning it into a creature with Karn, Silver Golem or March of the Machines. Take it a step further by adding Opalescence so your enchantments can be copied too. Ultimately, this is just supposed to be a big list of cards to draw inspiration from, not to all be added to the deck.

@superhuman21: I like the finisher cards you listed and have thought about them as well as Exsanguinate. What do you think I should exchange for them? Same with Torment of Scarabs; I just don't know what to swap it for. That and I think it would draw too much ire from my targeted foe. The mana rocks though are promising. Do you think I should run more fixing or ramp? I will test them over my color fixing and see which is better for me. I may not need the extra color fixing since I have so much fixing in my land base not to mention Ramos is so good at providing colored mana. As for the rest of your suggestions, the Isochron Scepter, Conflux and the Elite Arcanist seem promising and I will test them out but the Apprentice Wizard doesn't really help me much and I don't run enough creatures to warrant the Greaves or Cloak.
