Fusion Elemental Discussion

Fusion Elemental is cool and you can cast him without NEEDing Jodah on the field, but same argument as the Brontodon, just boring.
I don't understand what Wall of Runes, Feral Incarnation, or Opt do for you. Go for more direct land fetching, fix those colors! (by the way, I like the mana filter ideas, solid back-up plan that doesn't require foolish amounts of expensive lands!)
I love the direction and it looks like it plays well, but I would take it as more aggressive. Mana-ramp to get Jodah out as soon as you can and just start abusing his power!

Buried Alive and Final Parting should go in. Ramos, Dragon Engine could be fun. Also more ramp would help a lot. Cultivate Kodama's Reach and Farseek can't be underestimated in 5 color. Even Coldsteel Heart could be helpful. The vivid lands, like Vivid Grove would be pretty helpful. Tarnished Citadel is another affordable option if you get it from the right seller.

You're looking at this wrong - there is a drawback to a cost - the mana cost itself. As others have said in more detail, that basically locks you into mono-Green, which creates all sorts of problems for deckbuilding.
To put it another way, compare to - Wizards clearly understands coloured mana is more difficult to muster than generic, and invented an entirely new mana symbol to reflect this fact. In fact, if we look at Gigantosaurus in terms of hybrid mana, its converted mana cost would be 10.
If you were curious, Alpha's Savannah Lions is the earliest example of a creature whose power or toughness exceeds its CMC without a drawback.

Hi scotchtapedsleeves, for now i am keeping the full +1/+1 tactic.
I also have a Narset deck that kinda abuses the extra turn tactics. My friends hate it...
I've updated the decklist
Added: Herald of Secret Streams & Shalai, Voice of Plenty
Removed: Mina and Denn, Wildborn & Fusion Elemental

Thanks for your feedback! I definitely think that Atraxa, Praetors' Voice, Maelstrom Archangel, and Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth spike this deck's price way up. There are plenty of more budget friendly options such as Winding Constrictor, Vorel of the Hull Clade, or even Fusion Elemental. I definitely don't think you should remove the expensive mana ramp/fixers, such as Chromatic Lantern or Crystalline Crawler because they really help this deck. The mana base is pretty much the sole reason that this deck is above 150 USD, the typical budget deck cost, BUT this is a five color deck and there are definitely plenty of even cheaper land options, such as the khan tri-lands, I just happened to choose a slightly less budget mana base.
I hope that my response helps you!

So far, most of my suggestions have already been suggested by previous comments... Bummer. The only thing I can suggest at this point is probably Knight of New Alara, although it may not have very much synergy with Ramos, it probably should have decent synergy with other cards like Maelstrom Archangel. Maybe you can try out Mayael's Aria as an alt wincon, since it seems as if Ramos can get really big in the long term, but it's completely up to you, or probably Fusion Elemental, if you don't mind having a vanilla card in your deck.
