I just put this list together. It is a little different than what you have as it doesn't run Karn or a companion; however, I think it should be really consistent. Might be something you would be interested in? I personally don't think Karn would be that good. There just isn't enough good artifact sb cards that you would really want to grab. The main deck can deal with pretty much anything you need.

I_Want_To_PlayAllTheDecks This may be a unpopular opinion, but I don't think Yorion is really that good/needed in this list. Personally I always like to have as little cards as possible in my deck (60). Adding an additional 20 cards just makes things harder to get. In the end it will lower your chance of drawing tutor or Karn, which it seemed like you wanted to draw consistently. If it were me I would cut Yorion and bring the cards down to 60, also maybe add more removal that you can grab with tutor. You really only need like 6-8ish win cons if you wanted it to be really controlish. Maybe even cut all creatures and add planeswalkers since they can serve as a multi-purpose win con and removal spell....For an example Liliana, the Last Hope. Actually now that Im thinking about it there is another tutor you can add as well. Maybe as a 2 of Dark Petition. You could even make this a black green control deck like Season's Past from standard a long while back (Origins). Sorry this was a lot! Just a lot of ideas and in the end it is up to what you want to play. If you want any help designing or tweaking this more let me know, we could connect via discord. Anyway...that is my two cents.

Looking at Ramos, it seems you have a lot of hoops to jump through as you'd definitely have to add some mana filtering. Why not play Jodah, Archmage Eternal instead? With Cascading Cataracts, Composite Golem and Jegantha, the Wellspring, pumping out these ultimatims seems easy.
A card you should try is Seasons Past. While you can only recycle one Ultimatum per cast, the amount of recursion it grants you is obscene. Also, definitely add in Narset's Reversal for multiple uses out of each Ultimatum.

Ring of Three Wishes can also help get cards in some decks.

So I think you should run Preordain in addition to your Ponder. It's a similar effect and is a powerful t1 play. I wouldn't run Brainstorm until you run at least three more fetches, though they don't have to be Zendikar/Onslaught fetches to work; consider Terramorphic Expanse, Bad River or even Prismatic Vista.
I think you should run Toxic Deluge, though it can be a bit pricy. Have you considered running snow-covered lands and Dead of Winter? I'm a big fan, even though it gives you less control than Toxic Deluge.
In general, I do not like 3-mana mana-rocks at all -- 2-mana mana-rocks are common enough, and 3-mana mana-rocks feel like they're just a turn behind. In that vein, I think you should cut Darksteel Ingot and Dimir Locket for cards like Dimir Signet, Coldsteel Heart, Sky Diamond or Charcoal Diamond. These are especially good if you lead with a t1 Sol Ring or choose to run Ancient Tomb.
So, I think you should definitely look at running Eater of the Dead. It's a REALLY old card (1994), but it's actually kinda funny in Phenax, God of Deception. You can use its ability to exile a creature you've milled and untap him, then tap him using Phenax and repeat.
You could consider running Lantern of Insight or (if you got $$$) Field of Dreams. These can give you intel as to whether you want to mill an OP before they draw or on their end step, which in turn lets you choose their draws for them. (In modern/some legacy, this is called 'lantern control.')
One thing that I notice frequently going wrong with decks with generals who don't directly produce card-advantage is that they often simply run out of cards. I highly suggest bringing Fact or Fiction in from your maybeboard, and potentially running things like Chart a Course, Night's Whisper, Treasure Cruise, Necropotence, Dig Through Time, Chemister's Insight etc. to make up for this.
Right. That's all I got. Good luck.

Hey, yes Insidious Dreams is an underrated, underplayed, tutor and it's an instant. If you have or can get Yawgmoth's Will then definitely add it. I didn't see that you're playing Zombie Infestation and you're right it can make a Zombie for Gravecrawler as long as you have two cards to discard which can be faster than Dreadhorde Invasion. I'm honestly not a fan of Infestation, but if it's working for you then great.
Other ways to consider to make your deck more competitive is more speed. Lower the avg. CMC with more one drops; cards that make mana and/or cards that can draw. One drops that draw can draw you cards faster because you don't have to pay mana for them as well as put more counters on Krrik faster. One drops that make mana are helpful to make mana for colorless mana costs of cards to assemble combos faster.
Rain of Filth and Bubbling Muck are powerful when playing a lot of Swamps. Culling the Weak and Sacrifice is good with Krrik or other creatures. All four of these cards can be particularly helpful when you're trying to assemble Aetherflux + Citadel which needs seven colorless mana. Sacrifice makes seven mana by sacing Krrik. Krrik is not needed after you assemble this combo and Sacrifice is an instant. You can pay Phyrexian mana for Citadel, pay Phyrexian mana for Sacrifice, sac Krrik to then make mana to pay for the rest of the combo.
For your current deck there's less reasons to play so many high CMC creatures because you're winning with combo. Vilis, Razaketh, Pontiff, Sidisi and Gray are the best here. Instead of playing others, you could replace them lower CMC cards or other tutors: Mastermind's Acquisition and Dark Petition which can find important combo pieces. Tutors taking up high CMC card spots can better advance your game plan of winning with a combo rather than just having a big creature on the battlefield.
