Whenever Maelstrom Archangel deals combat damage to a player, you may cast a nonland card from your hand without paying its mana cost.

Maelstrom Archangel Discussion

I understand the enchantment flavor for Chromanticore and that it's decent by itself, but would rather see Ramos, Dragon Engine or something else that functions better (although Ramos can be aggro).
You totally have a theme going and I dig it, just tossing some thoughts out there.

Can't see any real use for Chandra, Fire of Kaladesh Flip, Steam Augury, Tibalt, the Fiend-Blooded (since you dont have Doubling Season he's way too slow), Mechanized Production and Deploy the Gatewatch. The last card won't work in this deck.. I had the exact same deck idea only with 25 walkers and even then it didn't work all the time.

Maelstrom Archangel is not so good. Always runs into removal. I'm not putting anything on the battlefield that I could have cast anyways. The Scarab God could be a good replacement, but the card is a little too pricey for me.

If a mana source is defined as any permanent with at least one mana ability, there are some really disgusting things you could do. Composite Golem into Maelstrom Archangel (or any number of other 5 drops), Ashnod's Altar into cheerio shenanigans, Primal Wellspring into Dark Ritual/Cabal Ritual, or just start the game with a free Ramos, Dragon Engine or Rosheen Meanderer. Maybe that all requires too much building around, but maybe that could also be the point. It'd be like EDH but your commander is just a mana source. Of course, it would never work. After all, it would only be a matter of time before Warden of the Wall completely takes over the meta and has to be emergency banned. 2spooky.

Hello RARoberts, this is London Calling.
Ditch Spoils of Victory and Sever the Bloodline, perhaps replace with good old fashioned spot removal. Deprive is probably a) not right with double , and I'm not sure I'd have a single counterspell - Swords to plowshares might be a bit techy, perhaps just a Doom Blade is okay?
Unclaimed Territory should go in says Joe.
Basically (last thing) if you are playing for Threshold you want a lot more self-mill. It'll take ages to get 7 cards in GY with an average CMC of 3.?, so either can the threshold idea (I don't think you need it!) or build around it specifically.

I think a deck with all the charms in it is an awesome idea. Ramos is an amazing commander as well.
Naturalize seems redundant as you have a bunch of charms to get rid of artifacts and enchantments.
Maelstrom Archangel is good but underwhelming as you have very few cards with CMC 6 or higher.
Harmonize is great for decks that don't have blue. However, you do have blue. so I recommend you take advantage of that and run some of the amazing blue card draw spells since you will have tons of mana. There are a bunch of budget options as well. These include but are not limited to: Foresee, Rush of Knowledge, Intellectual Offering (mostly for all the signets getting to untap), Treasure Cruise, plenty of others as well.
Dark Ritual seems very weak in this deck. Your running 5 colors for one so three black doesn't help a lot. Plus with Ramos, you will generate a lot of mana if you replace it with something that has more colors.
The deck seems to be lacking ways to abuse Ramos' ability or to even win for that matter. Door to Nothingness is perfect for Ramos, but if it's your only (or at least MAIN) way of winning then you should add in whatever tutors you can afford to make sure you get it. Having that much mana available means you should consider adding in some big beaters and high costing spells. Insurrection, Exsanguinate, Time Stretch, Army of the Damned, and any of the big Eldrazi are some of my favorite high-cost cards to play.
overall a very cool deck with a ton of answers to your opponents but seems left with very little in terms of winning. I would recommend adding higher CMC cards that have brutal or game-winning effects, then use Ramos, Maelstrom Archangel or even all your mana rocks to cast them fast.
