Enlightened Tutor Discussion

Hey, you asked for my advice. Consider narrowing down to a couple of strategies and cutting the rest? An important question is, how is the deck going to function if you don't have Ramos in play? Don't count on having his mana at all times. I would start by cutting a lot of the good stuff bombs and additional combats; you don't need these cards. They may be fun, nice to envision casting them with Ramos's mana, but they aren't practical. I would also cut the wheels or consider adding some options which can take advantage of getting cards out of the graveyard.
My suggestions are:
- Birds of Paradise
- Atraxa, Praetors' Voice
- Kess, Dissident Mage
- Eternal Witness
- Bloodbraid Elf
- Abzan Charm
- Jund Charm
- Bant Charm
- Esper Charm
- Sultai Charm
- Swords to Plowshares
- Sphinx's Revelation
- Supreme Verdict
- Demonic Tutor
- Vampiric Tutor
- Enlightened Tutor
- Worldly Tutor
- Bring to Light
- Prismatic Omen
- Joiner Adept
Other than Progenitus my suggestions will decrease the avg. CMC of this deck and allow you to focus on the more important cards rather than playing so many high casting cost cards which will be a hindrance much more than a strength in games where you don't have Ramos in play.
Playing tutors is better than playing so many good stuff bombs. It's better to play only a few good stuff bombs and then use the tutors to tutor for them directly when you want them. Tutors can help at all times in a game. In the early game to get cards that can help to cast Ramos and power him up and then later to find the bombs you want to use Ramo's mana with.
Charms are very good with Ramos, but more importantly they're good when Ramos isn't in play because they give so many options. They're also excellent with cascade.
Prismatic and Joiner are additional Chromatic Lantern effects. This effect is very important for the deck to function without Ramos's mana.
Kess is amazing with tutors and charms being able to cast them a second time from the graveyard.
Good luck with your deck.

Archwizard, I like this list a lot. I have to agree with grantlewis about using a 5c general, red doesn't offer a lot. The only cards I can think of in red that I would include are Gamble and Orcish Lumberjack. I would stick to 4c because Thrasios, Triton Hero is great to have in the command zone as an infinite mana sink.
I agree that redundancy is a good practice but I don't think it is worth the slot to keep Blood Artist when you have Zulaport Cutthroat. The Cutthroat is the better of the two because you don't have to target to drain the opponents. I would recommend replacing the Artist with Pattern of Rebirth because it allows you to win with Academy Rector, a sac outlet and any other creature in play. Alternatively, you can hard cast it on any creature and if you have a sac outlet in play that is another way to win. As a side note you can tutor for it with Enlightened Tutor.

Since you're hoping to go the spellslinger direction, I would suggesting adding more instants to interact with the board. Removals and permissions like Counterspell/Arcane Denial/Swan Song/Path to Exile/Swords to Plowshares are great inclusions. The new card Kess, Dissident Mage or Charmbreaker Devils are great creatures to reuse your spells. I would also suggest Fabricate/Enlightened Tutor and other artifact tutors to grab your wincon in a pinch. Jeleva and Magister sphinx can probably be replaced since they don't do anything much to further your deck direction. Hope this helps.

Ive heard ramos is best used as a storm commander, cast a ton of multicolor spells, then cast double the amount with double the mana
For storm, you're gonna need a LOT of instants, ramp, and "storm" spells
Storm/ multicolor spells
Also, charms are a great way to generate mana with ramos while having many modes for utility and building storm count
And many more..
Storm also needs a lot of tutors and recursion spells if you can afford them
But yea, from what I've heard and seen about ramos, you want to storm multicolor spells in order to cast more spells with the mana and using the insane ramp to win via stuff like Mind's Desire, Grapeshot, Brain Freeze and Tendrils of Agony after a huge storm count of multicolor spells

Cool deck! Really like the flavor of it.
Also, you seem a bit heavy on lands, I might cut 1 or 2 to be honest. 35 sounds about right.

This seems like a very good budget deck! You definitely get a +1 from me :)
There are a few adjustments I would make, however. Anguished Unmaking is a fantastic piece of removal that this deck would love (even though it doesn't profit off of your bounty counters). Enlightened Tutor helps you find many of your pieces faster, and is useful at all points in the game. Curse of Misfortunes seems perfect here, if you wanted to go that route :) Black Market also seems like your cup of tea.
I hope that helps!
