You are correct in that Coalition Relic is better than Manalith - in the right deck. I have no methods of proliferate or tap-dance. As a result, I can not pile charge counters onto the Relic. Effectively, all I will ever get out of it at one time is a single mana of the color of my choice. This is the same value I get out of Manalith , for the exact same CMC. It's not that Relic is bad - it's that my deck is not designed to optimize it.
Heart of Ramos is an amazingly beautiful card. I run the Relics in a lot of decks. I actually run Eye of Ramos and Skull of Ramos in my Silumgar, the Drifting Death deck for that very reason. The reason I did not include it within this deck is simply because I don't have need for a lot of stones. The ones I do have seem fine enough. Sure, I could get 1x additional , but I don't think in this particular deck is worth the slot for the card for a one-time use. In other words, to me the value of +1 in addition to the normally produced is less valuable than a card that remains on the field.
I honestly overlooked Thran Dynamo . Totally forgot it. I think I should replace Gilded Lotus . The triple colorless is easy to overcome since I'm only using one color, and it works perfect for mana dedicated toward stones. It might not speed up my deck by a whole lot, but it will see some slight improvement. Also, it gives me another card to free-cast off of Sunbird's Invocation when I cast my limited number of 4-drop spells, such as Crucible of Fire and Thunderbreak Regent .
Ruination and Winter Orb are great locks on the game. I could very easily slip them into the deck. The reason I don't want to is merely because I'm not that kind of player. It's not a bad suggestion; It's that I don't feel comfortable sitting down with a group of people and basically telling them they can't play Magic. If I wanted to do that, I'd play mono-blue ;)
The reason I literally run zero Instant and / or Sorcery spells is because I needed to make room for all my Dragons! Haha, joking aside the reason I didn't go with these in this deck is because I specifically sought out Dragons and Enchantments that have Instant / Sorcery-like impacts on the game. The main theme of the deck is a Dragon deck, but I'd say the archetype is strictly burn with the massive amount of non-combat damage I can very easily and steadily spread around. Effectively, my Dragons act with secondary functions, which allows me to double my resource value while honing in on synergy.
I honestly have not considered Sneak Attack , Bacon God, or even Etali, Primal Storm . All three of these would be great additions. I'll have to see what I can safely cut. I already have cheating aspects with Sunbird's Invocation , so adding another one or two would really help tie that into the synergy as well, rather than having it as a one-off gimmick.
Thanks for your suggestions! I'll get looking at what I can slot in and where :D
This deck to sort of be my love-child. It's everything I love in Magic:
- Big-ass stupid plays
- Ramp / Reduction
- Massive amounts of damage
- Archenemy style gameplay
- Giant boardstates
- And did I mention MOTHER F***ING DRAGONS?!
I'll admit, I fully intend on buying this deck and even pimping it out over time. So the suggestions really do help :D thanks!

Just dropped by for a quick look.
+1 for Dragons because they are cool.
Of course this all depends on how far you want to lean into a Dragon theme.
Lathliss, Dragon Queen is also a game changer.

If you can fit it in Crucible of Fire would be a great addition.

thanks for the comment, i know the combo but requires specific cards to make that happen, alone they don't works well for the purpose of the deck. I found March from the Tomb more consistent and i'll try Thunderkin Awakener for sure, good grave recycler and synergyzes very well with other creatures and/or with Crucible of Fire out. Also Thundermaw Hellkite can be another good (expensive) addition cause he synergyzes too much with the rest of the deck.
I need more test but i'll try this setup:

I am a very simple human being: I see a alt-art of Tohru and I click on the deck. Pity you do not have alt-arts of Fafnir, Locula and Khana. Would have loved to see that! I do have a few suggestions for the deck. Wild Pair would be a good addition to the deck. Boltwing Marauder is a pretty good dragon. Crucible of Fire gives a boost to every dragon. Lathliss, Dragon Queen should have an honourable place in this deck. Dragon's Hoard is fun and on theme. Where Ancients Tread is a maybe but it is thematic. You may want to consider Living Death as some recurrsion.
I hope this has helped!
